crappy mobile photo


Can I talk about how much I love my Phantom of the Opera piano book? It’s probably my favorite thing to play of my entire collection. I’ve had it since I was a kid. It’s now 20 years old, and it has fared far better than many music books half its age. The binding is superb; the pages are thick and glossy. 

Adaptations for solo piano sometimes feel like an afterthought, if not little more than accompaniment to the vocal arrangements, but these are gorgeous. The included songs translate well to piano–with the exception of, perhaps, “Masquerade,” which I think loses much of its fullness of sound. But more importantly, the pieces are fun to play. Twenty years later, and I still haven’t tired of them. The included photo spreads are a nice bonus. :)

I’m curious as to whether the publishing quality has held up over the years. Is it still as good as ever?

I’m really tired so all I managed to make is a trash doodle where character design accuracy means nothing and anatomy doesn’t exist. Quickly doodled this as fast as possible just to get it out of my head. I rarely spam these sketches due to quality reasons, but if people don’t mind them, then I’ll gladly post them more often.


Slytherin themed outfit. (even my boots have snakes on them)
Both the skirt and sweater are dark green, and the sweater is glittery metallic but sadly the pictures don’t show that very well. 

Sweater, blouse, skirt and tights: H&M
Detatchable collar: vintage

Sorry for the crappy mobile photos (and just the lack of outfit photos in general). Fogot my camera in the other end of the country this New Year.
