Ohhhh, look at those legs. Maybe it's a man, maybe it's a lady. Either way, don't they look warm? Print of an ink illustration that's been digitally colored and collaged then made into a lovely little greeting card.
Cards are printed on creamy colored 80lb cover weight paper and come in packs of five (with envelopes). Available in my etsy shop!

What a hat! A character, from an old-time photo I found, who is wearing the most flamboyantly feathered hat. An ink drawing with watercolor accents on a 6"x6" piece of watercolor board. ...mmmmm, you have to LOVE those old time hats and collars.

Some proof that I have not been lazy-ing it up for the past two weeks. Freshly completed top secret paper mache project.
HINTS: Slightly higher flour to water ratio worked the best for me. And really squeegee the paper strips (If it gets too soggy the balloons deflate) ...Also, I'd recommend this as an outdoor project. So much paper mache splatter to clean off the living room.
An ink drawing with a collaged detail. Drawn of old-timey friends for an old/current timey friend. Black ink on smooth bristol board.
ALSO, this drawing is photographed (not scanned) and I must say, the lines are much crisper in person.
