This week's random spread from one of my journals. It seemed to be a good image for celebrating 3 years of these (almost) weekly posts.

I'm following Women in comics

Comic by Guiganoide that says "fight like a girl" and has Wonder Woman drawn as a boxer.

Women in comics is ground zero for funny, poignant, feminist comics. Featuring both mainstream and underground comics, this Instagram is full of insightful images.

This week's spread from one of my journals features an image from a book (actually a trio of books) in progress and a sketch for a movie character.

I'm following Candy Anatomy

An image of a hand up of a variety of candies by Candy Anatomy

Mike McCormick, a second year Glasgow University Medical Student, is the mastermind behind one of my favorite Instagram accounts -- Candy Anatomy. He combines a variety of colorful candy bits to create anatomical models. My favorites are his different versions of eyes and hands.

Another random page from one of my sketchbooks.

Following Queen of Luna

A picture of Queen of Luna cosplaying as Cat Woman

Queen of Luna uses make up and a series of cleverly wrapped and draped hijabs to transform herself into pop culture characters. From Disney princesses to celebrities and from superheroes to cartoon characters, she tackles them all. 

Inspired by Cig Harvey

A picture of two hands holding a small bluebird. Title is Bluebird Leaving from the series Gardening at NIght by Cig Harvey

Cig Harvey's series Gardening at Night is breathtaking. I love the quiet beauty she creates in her photographs of her friends and family. The remind me of fairy tales that never existed, forgotten dreams, and children's flights of fancy.
