De Luce Sisters

delucegirls

I really love Alan Bradley’s Flavia de Luce mysteries, and I got to re-read (or re-listen, since it was an audiobook) The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie with my family on a recent road trip. The characters are so distinctive that I decided to try drawing them as they appear in my head. So here are Daphne, Flavia, and Ophelia de Luce. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sno-Cone Style

This is a fun little fashion illustration I did a few weeks ago that’s loosely based on some real items: a dress from ModCloth and a bag from Kate Spade New York.

A Place by the Sea

Practicing some urban sketching techniques using a beautiful photo from The Overseas Escape. It’s interesting how you feel like you really know a place after sketching it, even if you’ve never actually been there. ๐Ÿ™‚

There Goes the Sun

A little sunset seascape while I’m dreaming of being at the beach. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve been playing around with when not to use color. Surprisingly, figuring out when to leave a space alone hasย turned out to be more difficult than splashing color all over the place. I think this one suffered a little from over-fiddling, but at least it’s the beginning of a learning process.

Downton Dames, part 3

Finishing out my set of the young upstairs ladies from Downton Abbey. Even though Rose isn’t technically one of the Crawley sisters, I always felt like she was one of the family. Plus, her wedding dress is absolutely divine.

Ever since I drew Mary and Edith Crawley a few months ago, I’ve been wanting to pay tribute to the dearly departed Sybil. And of course I had to try my hand at depicting that famous “harem pants” outfit from Season 1. This getup is so much fun!
