As a younger woman, that pressure to look flawless got me down, but I’ve made my peace with it. With airbrushing and digital manipulation, fashion can project an unobtainable image that’s dangerously unhealthy. I’m excited about the ageing process. I’m more interested in women who aren’t perfect. They’re more compelling.


Lets Draw Sherlock - Sherlock Characters Participating in Lets Draw Sherlock!
Alternative Professions

Upon seeing some “helpful criticism” on his blog, Sherlock turns to botany in hopes of one day having  a garden for his bees. Unfortunately, things don’t really go as planned and he fails. What is he to do?

This is terribly, awfully late but seeing as how this might be the very last of the Lets Draw Sherlock challenges, I wanted to give it my all and finish it. I’ve done every single challenge from the start of it all and it’s been one wild and creative ride from start to finish, one I’ve grown immensely from as an artist. This group introduced me to so many brilliant people, and essentially helped me establish an artist presence I never dreamed I’d have. I’m forever thankful to Lets Draw Sherlock for encouraging me to keep working, and to make what I love, even when things may be difficult. Thank you so much for the adventure! I hope we all meet again soon. Season four perhaps? :’)


(For those who may be concerned, there’s a bonus bit to this that I’ll draw once I have some sleep. There’s a happy ending for Sherlock after all!)
