there's more than one way to skin a witch

Another drawing for the New York Times Book Review, in print today. Got into sort of a mad infinite loop, made many many versions of this drawing.

brass knuckles

brass knuckles

21st birthday gift for my brother, Viggo. So he can leave his mark on anyone who might wrong him (and also slices of bread, soaps, leather jackets, etc). I'm going to start making custom ones, but probably a little smaller - something subtler and more wearable for your average, less-theatrical-and-eccentric-than-a-Blegvad, person.

Also, brass knuckles are illegal. So I'll have to play up the 'novelty jewellery' aspect, and minimise the 'brand your enemies' feature.

two birthdays

21st birthday card

a 21st birthday card for my brother

3rd birthday card

and a 3rd birthday card for the little girl I babysit. She is obsessed with cats.

And in between the two birthdays was St Patrick's Day. I have never seen quite such enthusiastic Irish celebrations as I saw yesterday in New York. So intense. Watched a guy fall asleep against the wall of a bar, resting on his giant padded hat, at 2.45pm. Magic.

If you're going to sleep on my scanner, you're going to reap the reward.

Unused (very rough) sketches for a commission for the NYT Book Review. Drawing creepy witch stuff = the dream.

I've started making things in wax to get cast in silver. I'm fairly obsessed with it and am spending pretty much every cent I have on making new things. This necklace is sterling silver with a garnet drop.
