I’M BACK – with an updated icon!  For the first time since I made this account like…five? years ago, I changed my icon.  Sorry for disappearing for so long there guys, and to all my mutuals for not keeping up with your awesome inktobers.  I needed to take an internet break to get some stuff done, but I’m back to posting now, starting with this new icon.  (And check out my new tumblr header image, too, yay!)

Bulrush (Typha) - Indiscretion, Docility

An iconic lakeside plant, the bulrush (or reedmace, or cattail) looks exactly like it does in the cartoons- the picture of gently swaying, peaceful summer bliss. It’s actually an incredibly useful plant: most of it is completely edible. It can be made into flour, eaten raw or as a cooked root vegetable, mashed, dried… And it’s not just edible: the plant has found its uses in chair seating and binding, textile, paper, weaving… It’s truly a plant that’s friendly to humans!

Except, of course, on one famous occasion: in Greek mythology, the unwise and unlucky King Midas was called upon to judge a musical contest between Pan and Apollo. When he revealed that he preferred Pan’s pipes to Apollo’s lyre, Apollo turned his ears into those of a donkey as punishment. Midas, ashamed with his new appearance, tried to hide the ears with extravagant and elaborate helmets and headdresses, leaving none but his barber to know his secret. Though this barber swore never to tell anyone, the knowledge of his king’s transformed ears swelled up in his head until he thought he might burst. He ran to the fields, dug a hole, and whispered the secret inside. He buried it, relieved, probably, until a thicket of Typha reeds sprung up from the secret and started whispering “King Midas has an Ass’ ears!” to the wind until everyone knew the shameful secret.

Jane Eyre no.2 :)

This painting will be soon available for purchase. It is done in watercolor and ink on cold pressed paper. It’s supposed to be a piece for a show, but the Gallery made such a mess with Show Guidelines and anything that I asked them to have it back. It will available through Etsy, but don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like to reserve it :)
