I've been working on a series of illustration for a story a friend of mine wrote. I'll visit her soon in Toronto so we can put it all together and make a little zine out of it (Also: see the new Harry Potter movie. Yeah!). This is a big deal for me, as I had never illustrated something before. It took me way to long to figure it out properly, and to do it in a way that I like, but I expect next time will be easier. It's a huge confidence boost for me to realize I can do that.

A Witch's Spell. It's full of slightly dark, magical, witchy.
I am very happy about it, and it represents lots of things that inspire me right now: The night, stars, the universe, magic spells, fog, dark horses, candles, crystals, bones and feathers, bats, drumbeats, shadows, etc.
take a look if you want!
I've also made two new 8tracks mixes.
In a Treehouse of Our Own
10 songs by: First Aid Kit, Ane brun, Agnes Obel, johnny flynn & Laura Marling, Smoke Fairies, Mountain Man, Camera Obscura, Lia Ices, Alela Diane, and Blue Roses.
11 songs by: Cilla Jane, Austra, Fever Ray, My Brightest Diamond, Vashti Bunyan, Sea of Bees, Tasseomancy, Warpaint, Bat for Lashes, Lykke Li, and Oh Land
More inspiring things: lost nests, feathers, birds, cricket songs, windy days, cold ice tea, strawberries, thunderstorms, riding in cars with windows opened, sleeping late, fresh mowed grass, eating outside, ice cream, rivers and lakes, reading books, daydreaming.
I've been unable to write for the longest time, but I think I'm finally getting through this writing block of mine, and shall return soon, possibly, with some words which hopefully will not make me ashamed of having written them.
Until then, dear ones xxx
