Marina's Moly

Marina is just so gorgeous I had such a lovely time drawing her!

But then I had to draw me. It was a bit of a let down. I just couldn't inspire myself. So I responded to her own work and added a little illusive Sunday morning sketch of myself (it's silver, grey, white and iridescent purple so it's a bit hard to see - even in person).

I love the softness of this, the wandering lines and the layers of words. It shows that you enjoyed drawing her!

wow, Jan! I love it!
I was so trilled to see your drawing! I'm not usual that people drawing me...
It's so wonderful! I looked at this for a long time, trying to absorb all these layers and materials! I can't wait to see it in person! (It's a long time I still have to wait)
And I wish I had this nice patterned dress that you draw for me ;P
Thank you so much!

I love it. I can't wait to see what happens in my book. I've always wanted to try some collage type stuff. I have, but it never ever looks as good as this.

Awesome entry.

I agree with everyone else! I love to see everyone's different styles and am thrilled to see how they all work together. Keep up the awesome work!

Thanks everyone! Yes, my style is quite different to everyone else's and I wondered what you think. Phew! Glad you like it!
