I was going through some old high school (*gasp*) artwork and thought I might show it on here for kicks. :)
This is a color pencil drawing (using prisma color pencils) of random paper and plastic plates stapled to the wall in my old art classroom.
The Goddess Eriu in watercolor paints (but acrylic lettering)
This is a sketch I started- and as you can see never finished- which originally was going to be a watercolor painting...but well I got carried away in the drawing proccess.
What I planed to do was create (in the background) more futuristic military people in a straight line formation.
The sentence at the time that kept poping in my mind was "No matter how advanced we are, there will always be war."
So I wanted to show an androgynous woman, head bent, deep in thought of ethics while men and women- to the side of her- are all looking upward, staight backed, with extreme pride on their faces.
Normally I don't do futuristic art- it's just not my style- but I really enjoyed the concept behind this piece. And of course no piece is me without some celtic design. (See the triskele on the armor :)

Hello all of my Pagan and Witchy friends!
I'm pretty excited to be posting this new item that I have created- It's still not done yet though! I started this project at 12:30am last night, but had dyed the leather green about a week ago.
The book has 120 thick ivory pages, and it is about 5 inches wide by 6 1/2 inches tall. I plan to be adding some sort of clasp or closure on the book, I may paint celtic knots and zoomorphic designs on the back and spine. What I definitely be doing is modifying the inside of the book adding colored pages/and organic items. (I will be posting pictures of the inside later once I finish.)
Here you go! (Oh, once this book is finished, it will be for sale too!)
I hope you guys like it- I had a blast making it!
