Odds 'n' Ends

I know that I've been promising to post some finished pieces, but I'm afraid that my scanner is very much gasping its last. It has served me well for going on six years now, and it's tired. So, sadly, you won't be seeing larger, finished art until I've replaced it. Hopefully that will be within the week. Fingers crossed - I've got to figure out what the best one I can afford is. Wish me luck!

In the meantime, here are a few more things from my sketchbook:

Victoria and I decided we were each going to do drawings of our favourite American Girl characters as adults. Here's my initial drawing of Felicity in her early twenties. I have to admit, I am really pleased with how this came out. I will scan it again (read: better) when I've replaced my scanner, but I wanted to share this now.

A slightly closer look.

La Fée Verte! I really have no idea what inspired me to do this, but it was fun.

There's a Welsh kids' song called "Gwenni aeth i ffair Pwllheli" (Gwenny Went to the Pwllheli Fair) which is great fun. It's about a little girl who keeps getting in a rather lot of trouble, despite having very good intentions. I think it would make a fun series of illustrations. So, here are the initial couple of doodles. We'll see how it goes from here.
