As some might be aware Harry Potter’s birthday is tomorrow (July 31st) and in celebration the internet has declared this entire week as #PotterWeek! I am a crazy HP fan so in honor of this I created a new icon reppin’ my house, Ravenclaw, which I was officially sorted into when I joined Pottermore.
In other news, I now have a tumblr to go with this blog! So any of my fellow tumblrites can follow right over here!
If there is anything I am passionate about, it is animals and their protection and rights. I grew up with animals in my home and the Zoo remains one of my favorite places to visit. April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals month and the ASPCA asks supporters to “Go Orange for Animals” to raise awareness. I wanted to create something to help spread the word so I picked an orange animal as my subject. As a great cat lover a tiger was the natural choice!
Kindness is free and easy to give, and animals deserve it just as much as anyone else. Please be kind to all animals, big and small, and help spread awareness of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals month! There are many ways you can get involved which you can read about in the link provided above.
I’ve been in the mood to draw lately so I thought I would post two pieces I did recently. I originally posted them both to instagram, but instagram is not always the best for viewing high resolution artwork, so I thought I would post them here for anyone who wanted a better look! Click each image for the zoom option.
1924 – I did this as a sketch for the premiere of Downton Abbey in the USA, and then later added color.
Ella – I just love the new Disney live action Cinderella and I was completely enamored with Ella’s blue ball gown after seeing the film!
