Having the opening scene of The Mist involve the main character painting a picture of Roland Deschain of Dark Tower fame thrilled me to no end. I really enjoyed the film, actually, and love that it was such a creature flick; if occasional but well-used gore doesn't squick you, I'd definitely recommend it.

We also went to see Enchanted afterwards as a sort of light-hearted compliment to The Mist so we wouldn't be remarkably depressed on our way home, which was nice. I managed to see it over Thanksgiving break with my family, but loved seeing it again and cannot get the damn songs out of my head. The urge to start an internet meme getting everyone to draw themselves as disney princesses is overwhelming...

I have so much art to post, so apologies for the backlog. I'm not totally happy with lots of my recent comic work, but that's probably me just being picky.

In Which Claire Wants to Buy Colouring Books

In order to start getting some more recent art up, I'm posting two quick details of some of my work for my Colour with Crayons class. The whole idea behind the class is learning to layer tons of crayon to get at different colours, and it's amazingly fun- lots of scribbling and correcting of mistakes is involved. The first is a study of a John Singleton Copley self-portrait, and the second is a chunk of a larger piece with Eowyn and Gríma.
