the well-dressed, well-coifed bulgarian lady who occasionally cheated

Listen as you watch: When I started this picture earlier this evening, I was stuck. I knew I wanted to put something on this woman’s head, I just wasn’t sure what. A little ways in I posted my progress on Instagram. Minutes later, my friend Lubna Saif Abbas left a comment: I imagine her with a set of […]

I’ve upped my speed with this drawing. I hadn’t realized how near we are to the end of ramadan and I’m kinda panicking. I’m going to miss it once I’m done. Which should be tomorrow. Please click here for a step by step slideshow of this drawing.

new painting|escaping ballerinas|july 1 & july 2

I started this painting yesterday. I didn’t think I’d get this far, but I got really into it. I’m very much enjoying the patterning, and I made it a rule to avoid all opaqueness, which is very different from my usual approach to painting. I only broke the rule at the end because it was […]
