Everyone thinks of [fairy tales] in terms of poisoned apples and glass coffins, and forgets that they represent girls who walked into dark forests and remade them into their own reflections.

Before I start writing: This is a magnificent work of genius. I can see it sprawled open in my mind and it is perfect. All I need to do is write it down.
After I open a blank document: I have two half-sentences and an emoticon. There is nothing else in my brain.



I watched “The Illusionist” (2010) by Sylvain Chomet earlier tonight. It reminded me of all the animated films I used to watch when I was a kid years ago. It’s amazing how much of original work was put into creating this motion picture. I miss animated films being like they used to be - softer and kinder to one’s heart. 

Oh gosh, I so, so need to see this film.


Some Hermes Girl posters I did recently for a contest. In response to these, my sister informed me that people with wings stuck to their heads make her queasy…? Apologies if it has that effect for anyone else!
