Martha’s Vineyard Gingerbread House Drawing

By | April 15th, 2016|Uncategorized|

I've been lucky enough to do my henna art on Martha's Vineyard (particularly for the Midsummer Faerie Festival in Oak Bluffs).

I never got super duper into comics when I was younger - which is odd, really. So I never really got into drawing characters. And figure drawing in art classes involved a bit too much nekkid for my sensibilities. The only time I've ever really had to try to draw the human form much is [...]
