Been doing a lot of sketches lately

First two are characters of mine, of sorts. They sorta represent different parts of me. Mersey Samoik (her first name is the river that runs through Liverpool, where my dad is from and her last name is my great-grandmother’s last name haa) is a red squirrel, a species clinging on the edge of extinction in England. She’s introspective, at times energetic, sickly, and stressed. Magda Rischevitz, the magpie, is stronger in her person, less emotional than Mersey is. She does not suffer fools, wears traditional folk clothing, and is proud of her being. Though at the same time she’s selfish and keeps to herself, while Mersey tries to interact with others. Her last name is the name of my other great grandmother (her full name is gorgeous, Anna Katerina Rischevitz!), and Magda just because it sounds good with a bird and also it sounds kinda “old world”. 

I suppose Mersey is more like my modern self while Magda is the little-known, old world part of my family. Or something like that.

And then there’s a picture of Alexx’s character Sine :3

MY CAMERA WORKS ONCE MORE

This means I can finally take photos of my art from last fall and now and put it up here for all of you to see!!

I’m also planning to document my sketchbooks in Jerome Witkins style (he has an interesting “interactive sketchbook” feature on his website) so I thought I’d share every page: warts, food stains, post-its and all!

BE ON THE LOOK OUT FOR THAT

The tag will be “sqwug sketchbooks” and also under my term “merseyart” ^u^
