In The Dressing Room

I went to the mall yesterday. The highway we drove on was flooded from the melting snow and recent rainfall. We passed what seemed like ponds where once there were fields. Two lanes of the highway were closed to cars and open for the fishes. The world turns upside down and topsy-turvy and we drive on.
Outfit details: dress- Zara, tights- Forever 21, shoes- H&M, bag- Ruche

Some earnest commenters have convinced me to post a couple pages from my sketchbook. There are as many pages of collages as there are of doodles in it. A number are ink stained, since I continue to use a pen that bleeds all over my fingers. I often don't finish my doodles, some of these aren't even complete...and it won't be a habit of mine to post these.

  1. Your drawings are so lovely and whimsical, dear! I do like them very much!

    And it is flooding on my side of the state too!! Except we had around 3 feet of snow (if not more) and now it's all warm and wet! This is craziness, I dare say..

  2. your drawings are positively charming!!!
    that last piece is especially wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  3. I get stains & smudges all over my sketches too, but this is mainly because I'm left-handed and hold things awkwardly (or so I've been told) ;)
    Your little jackalope is super cute!

    The black ink drawings are really striking, its a shame you won't be posting them often! xsx

    And of COURSE I've seen Freaks & Geeks! It's one of my favorites-- and I definitely compare it to My So-Called Life in the "Greats Who Never Made It Past a Season."

    ReplyDelete
  12. I love your doodles. They would make fantastic illustrations for a book. Maybe a sort of whimsical half-children's, half-adult's picture book?

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love the jackalope illustration!

    You have a wonderful, whimsical, witty drawing style. You should sell your doodles on Etsy -- I know I would buy some!

  18. I love that close-up picture of you smiling. It just brings joy.

    Your sketches are beautiful. I remember back when you covered your laptop with that trademark pretty doodles, like those in the last picture. I was a bit jealous my laptop didn't look as good...

    I would love it if I saw more of your doodles here from now on.

  25. you're drawings are amazing, you should listen to your subscribers and put them up more.

    or better yet, start a profile on this site www.redbubble.com

    it's a site for artists where they can sell work and talk to other artists, i know i would buy that first penguin picture on a t-shirt.

  26. I thought you'd got a haircut, your hair looks really lovely!

    I am seriously impressed by those doodles...really impressed. <3 <3

    I loved your comment about girls in LOTF - so much so you inspired a mini rant in my comments section. God, can you imagine how different it would be? Definitely Cold War 2 rather than WW3.

  27. Love all your lil bracelets. The drawings are very good, I love the jackalope pic - wow!

    ReplyDelete
  43. i feel awkward commenting here, genderwise...but for once i have to speak up and join the calls for more of your "doodles".
    the jackalope is already way beyond what i'd consider a mere "doodle". awesome. plain and simple.
    and before i vanish into obscurity again: you dress nicer than anyone i've ever met. very classy and never garish.
    'tis hard not to be blinded by the natural rest of your appearance though. (which is my way of saying "you're cute"). right. i'm rambling. last words: nevereverstopwearingtights.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Sooo pretty! And that bag is to die love

    second, you draw so cute. it's so like you. really you.

    ReplyDelete
  64. i really enjoy your "doodles." they're really lovely illustrations, with great whimsical lighthearted feel. Hmm... maybe I'll post some of my art eventually. My profile picture is a self portrait. But yeah, I really admire your clean style and selective use of detail.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Rebecca! This is the loveliest post! I love your pictures of the three-way mirror. So much fun! And your sketches are great! I love the last one the most. I have a thing for photos/drawings of feet. And I love how you've made the feet/legs the negative out of a pattern. I think you could sell that one as a print. I'd buy it at least.

    ReplyDelete
  73. wonderful drawings. the beauty of doodles is that you don't have to finish them no? :)

    ReplyDelete
  74. Love your outfit and the first photo. Very cute!

  76. Wow, those doodles are so incredible. I never really drawy with pen, but the black ink really adds a certain element to your drawings. I love the patterns in the last two.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I'm so so so glad you posted more of these, they are fabulous! very talented.

    ReplyDelete
  78. In particular I find that tri-angle photo of you looking down demurely flattering, mature and rather beautiful in a simple, charming way.


    as for your sketches, I honestly think you could make a living selling your designs as post cards and posters. Just an idea. Probably has already been pitched to you dozens of times.

    ReplyDelete
  79. i love the top one! would put that up on my wall in a second. in fact i'd commission you to recreate it for me. i'm serious.

    ReplyDelete
  80. I really like your style! I shop at Urban Outfitters too, I love their sales. Well anyways, how much was your camera? It takes really nice pictures

    ReplyDelete
  81. Your drawings are beautiful, you are seriously talented! I love the last two in particular, I would totally buy a top printed with either one of them!

    ReplyDelete
