After months and months of kanzashi work, I decided to dedicate some time to drawing.
When I was a little kid I found my Mom’s hardcover version of the book Faeries by Brian Froud and Alan Lee. I read that book so many times that the pages started to fall out, and I ended up having to buy a new copy. Brian Froud is probably most famous for his work on The Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal, which were also big influences on me as a kid. I think at this point I pretty much own all of Brian Froud’s books, including a signed book plate.
That said, whenever I start sketching and drawing just for my own amusement, without a particular focus or development goal, I end up doodling faeries. I like my faeries to be brightly colored and have outfits with a plant-based look.
