They're cute, they're going on my Etsy

I wanted to do a little linoleum carving lately, so I cut down a piece I had to make tiny little animals expressing their love for you.

Here's the linoleum, I'll post the prints when I make them.

I want to track my progress...

I'm doing a piece dealing with the death of my brother, and it's a painful piece to work on. It's taken me months to even get as far as I have on it. But I know there are a ton of changes that I am going to make on it.

So here's the sketch and the first bits of the painting.

I still have no other name for it, other than "Vengeance"

Body Image Doll

This is the rough cut out of the editorial illustration I did on body image. I'm still working on an updated version of the complete illustration.
I couldn't help but cut her out and assemble her. Although, I see issues with the doll, I'm going to correct what I think needs correcting in the final illustration. Then I'll go and have it printed out and then I'll reassemble her!

Then I'll take a photo of the completed doll and scan the art. Because a scan of this thing doesn't do the colors and the assembly justice.
(remember, this is a rough)

(I already know that there is a wonderfully talented artist who makes amazing art paper dolls. I found her stuff while doing research for mine. I'm not stealing her idea or concept, since I had the idea to create this before I found her.)
