I can easily spend an entire afternoon with my pencils and so here is a small collection of some of—though by no means all of—those artistic spring afternoons. All of the pictures have something I particularly like about them, either in the picture itself or the story behind it (I mean all pictures have stories, do they not?) Hence they are somewhat of a small gathering of this loveliest of Springs.
My very first piece of fan-art (and though the sketch is not perfect) it is of the two main characters in High Noon, which makes it perfect. Hence I cannot help but be very happy.
Ballerinas are incredibly fun to draw and I am most pleased with this one as, though she was first inspired by a photo, I drew her from memory.
This was inspired by a shockingly terrible book cover for “The Silver Chair” by C.S. Lewis—(Rillian with green hair? I think not)—and the art of Trina Schart Hyman, whose work I greatly admire.
