An Open Letter to Orson Scott Card

Dear Mister Card,

I would like my life back, please.

Love, Eloise.

PS: What happens to Achilles?

I read Ender's Shadow this week over three days, although that final day meant 13 straight hours of reading. (I'm not fast, but at least I'm obsessive.) In celebration, I did a quickie sketch (on the Wacom). Those would be my neglected art supplies in the foreground.

Also! The sketch features my newly sewn dress. I really like color, but I really really like to wear gray. This makes my mother crazy.

New stuff coming soon, darn it.


Back and in color

I just returned from a two week trip to California with my mother and sister, and although I have a lot of inspiration and almost ten yards of really gorgeous fabrics and two weeks worth of obsessive knitting, I don't have much in the way of illustration to show.

I realize, though, that I never posted the entirety of my final for Artistic License. Along with the patterns and the picture book, I made toys.

Like previous ones, these are cast plastic from rubber molds and their parts are interchangable and magnetic. I painted them with acrylic this time instead of spray paint and am much happier with the result. The packaging (which was a fun new experience) is a plexiglass tube with a styrofoam top and bottom.
