New Patreon project:

☆*・゜゚・* Christina Rossetti’s THE GOBLIN MARKET *・゜゚・*☆

For a while now, I’ve muttered to myself about how much I’d love to illustrate Christina Rossetti’s poem, THE GOBLIN MARKET, and I finally sat down and figured out how I want to tackle the project.

In my art, my interests are split between comics, illustration & sketches, and I find that whenever I get exhausted working in one area, I simply need to change tracks to one of my other foci for a bit and I’ll get my mojo back.  So this will be the illustration project that I will work on when I am exhausted in comics or sketches.

I don’t have a timeline for this thing; I’ll work on it when I can.  Similar to what I’m doing with OXYGEN BURN, I will post the pages only to my Patreon until I finish the project.  After that, I plan to sell it, both digitally & in print.

I’m so grateful for everyone’s support, here & on Patreon & elsewhere!  I hope that you have a beautiful start to the week!  (´ ▽`).。o♡

MYTHOLOGY: mermaids

  I am a creature of the Fey
Prepare to give your soul away
My spell is passion and it is art
My song can bind a human heart
And if you chance to know my face
My hold shall be your last embrace.

I shall be thy lover…

I am unlike a mortal lass
From dreams of longing I have passed
I came upon your lonely cries
Revealed beauty to your eyes
So shun the world that you have known
And spend your nights within my own.

I shall be thy lover…

You shall be known by other men
For your great works of voice and pen
Yet inspiration has a cost
For with me know your soul is lost
I’ll take your passion and your skill
I’ll take your young life quicker still.

I shall be thy lover…

Through the kisses that I give
I draw from you that I will live
And though you think this weakness grand
The touch of death your lover’s hand
Your will to live has come too late
Come to my arms and love this fate

I shall be thy lover…

I am a creature of the Fey
Prepare to give your soul away
My spell is passion and it is art
My song can bind a human heart
And if you chance to know my face
My hold shall be your last embrace.
