so i tried to order my big sister (aka surrogate mom) a birthday basket from harry & david. twice. but both times they couldn’t–for some unknown reason–process the order.
so i went to godiva…where there is a $10 shipping fee.
so over to wine country…where nothing i wanted was available until the 19th of february.
fuck it, i said. i will make my own fucking fancy basket.
complete with a hand painted inking of some marvelous sea life.
meanwhile, i spent some time scanning maps &–because someone on tumblr said my style was “archaic greek” i looked at some artwork from that there time period.
which inspired some doodling.
meanwhile, misha was begging me to draw her a phoenix from her fantastic creature book.
i misunderstood & painted this.
but she said, “no.” she wanted to color it. so i drew this for her.
and she spent the morning coloring it.
i am thinking i might have a future in illustrating some fantastic beast coloring books.
