New drawing and new postcards for sale

I made this drawing in Photoshop for fun, and ended up kind of liking it.

The original sketchbook version is always better though, at least to me.

Anyhow, I thought it would look cute as a little print, so I got four more drawings together and made a postcard set that you can buy on my Etsy shop. Each one is shiny and colorful and about 4" x 6". Here are the other ones...all stuff I've posted before, but tweaked to be more "print worthy."

I am making larger prints of some of these that will also be on my Etsy store shortly. I'm also working on some new Skadi prints.

You can click this drawing to go to the shop! Thanks!

Also, thanks for all the encouragement on my last post. I'll definitely be posting more drawings from my hill folk project soon.

I thought you'd still be mine, when I kissed you goodbye

Here I am wearing the corduroy skirt from the last post. Stupidly enough it's a size too big, because I thought it had an elastic waistband, so a size bigger wouldn't matter. I should have looked better. That's what you get with internet sale shopping. You just get to eager. So my solution for the weekend was to move the button, but for a long time solution I need to make the skirt about 3 inches smaller in the waist, if it isn't more. I'm just bummed out the skirt makes me look bigger than I actually am right now.
Anyhow, I combined it with a lace top that I got in sale last year in Harrods, my red satchel and some Zara wedges also from last year. That I've added these shoes to this outfit was an unexpected twist for me, because it didn't felt like my outfit was 'balanced'. Don't actually know why I went for it anyway, but even though it didn't felt balanced, it did felt right.

Thanks to my boyfriend for making these shots. He pretty much has the best place to take outfit shots without going somewhere for a nice background.

I'm wearing a Marc by Marc Jacobs lace top, Asos skirt, Topshop necklace and camera ring, Dahlia ring,Urban Outfitters satchel and Zara wedges.

Keep your lips on me, try as hard as you might

So this is what I was wearing last Monday. I was in the centre of my city, Amersfoort, and I already expressed my love for it so many times on my blog that I'm not going to do it again! Even though I just love it so much! It's even better than Amsterdam if you ask me.
Anyhow, got this darling coat, dress and cardigan when I was in London. I have a hard time not wearing these items constantly. They're so comfortable, yet cute. I was craving for this dress since September and I was so happy that I got it at last. Even in sale, which made it better! I'm very pleased I can wear things like this in this time of the year. It really isn't cold when there isn't a lot of wind. It's just chilly, that's all. I hope it will stay like this for the rest of the winter!

I'm wearing a Dahlia coat, dress, cardigan, ring and bracelet, seiko watch, Miu Miu bag, H&M hat and shoes I don't know.

Here's another song I've been listening a lot too. I want to dance right away when I hear it.

Unfinished, unnamed hillfolk comic

So I've had this comic idea that I've wanted to do for a few years now, but I can't seem to get it started. I have the three main characters more or less figured out, but I can't seem to get the story or style nailed down.

If this comic actually existed, it'd be about three girls living in the Appalachian Mountains, sometime around the year 1900. I guess it's kind of inspired by all the things that they sing about in old country songs...religion, heartache, murder, mental illness, etc. All my favorite things.

There's Cora, a fire and brimstone fanatic who cuts her own hair and sometimes does bad things, like set fires to stuff. She's basically good though. And the most fun to draw.

Her "friend" is Shah, who lives alone in the mountains making moonshine and fighting off the inbred cannibals who live nearby. Shah likes animals and shooting people.

The third character is a mysterious girl with no memory of her life before being found on a riverbank by Cora. She goes by the name Everlovin' and has a sweet and naive personality, but also some pretty weird habits that suggest her life before half-drowning was shady.

It feels a little foolish to even share this stuff, since I haven't done anything besides doodle the characters. I have a very convoluted outline written out, but it's definitely not really a real "thing" yet. But I guess I'm sort of attached to the characters anyhow, since I've been drawing them for a long time now. And maybe sharing stuff will inspire me to get off my butt and make something.

The style I draw the girls in keeps changing every time I draw something new. I don't know which direction to go. The ones above are only a month old or so, and this one below is a few years old.

Teeny little sketchbook hillies.

The story I want to tell is a little darker than I'm used to, but I also like light-hearted things, so for a while I played with the idea of doing separate little comics that had the same characters, only as possums.

I like how ugly they are. I did some of them as different types of animals too, but I like the possum ones better.

So, that's all for now. I've got tons more drawings hidden in boxes all over my new apartment, so maybe if people are interested in this idea I'll get them all scanned and maybe talk about the characters a little more. I'd love feedback on this. I'm really not sure if this is the sort of thing that only appeals to me, or what. I still want to make this a finished thing, even if it is.

Thanks for coming back! 2012 is the year for getting back into drawing! A two year break is too long. No more lazy drawing for me. I hope.

Kiss my gentle burning bruise, I'm lost in time

Life has been a bit boring lately. Because of all the rain you couldn't really do something. Good thing there were some dry moments and I had the opportunity to make some photo's. But also I don't really know what to do. At the moment I don't have work and no school, so I don't have obligations to keep me busy. Though I should start at my new work somewhere this month!

Anyhow, now about my outfit. I wore this dress on Christmas eve when we were celebrating Christmas at my boyfriends parents home with his family. I didn't wore the dress like this, because I was being lazy and wore it with some black flat suede boots and no accessories. Ever since I got this dress, I planned to wear it like this, but never got around to do it. I did now, obviously.
I think this is one of the best dresses ever from Dahlia. All their dresses are wonderful, but this one got me head over heels. I think the whole a/w collection is one of Dahlia's best!

I wear my heart on my sleeve

First outfit of 2012! I really think it's awful to make outfit shots during the winter months. It's way too cold! I'm out of my mind that I do this. Anyhow, what do you think of this dress that I got from Dahlia? In 2010 I got it in blue, so also having this dress in burgundy is pretty much awesome. It was my favourite piece for a very long time! I'm such a sucker of flow-y fabrics and everything that emphasize my waist. I'm wearing this dress with my new Topshop hat! Finally a change of hats! And with a rather old pair of anklebooties. I don't wear them often, because they don't really suit me anymore. That's what you get after 2 years I think.
