Another royal character in my series today…I present you with The Duchess!  I went for a less cute look on this one as I would like to portray different personalities in each character.  She’s still a bit cute, but with some edge in my mind.  I feel like I still want to tinker with her a bit…so perhaps this is not final.  I do like to make prints however, so I can look at my ladies framed, up-close, from afar…all views!  These gloomy days make it difficult to take photos, so I apologize for the bright flash that washes out the background texture of the paper.

I am also working on some ATCs – my first ones – for some mail/art exchanges.  It’s exciting and yet again, scary as well.  I hope the recipients will like them when I finish.  I have been doodling these characters upside down and decided to create a series of ATCs.  Amazingly coincidental is that I recently also heard a song by Paloma Faith titled Upside Down.  You can watch the video of a live performance of Upside Down on YouTube.  It says exactly what I want to express, so it’s perfect inspiration and musical accompaniment while working on these pieces.  How cool is that?  The world works in mysterious ways indeed!  Go figure!
