Just experimenting with newly acquired picture books of Victorian garb. I think I'd be a good Victorian lady if I had the clothes (and the money) for it. No use being in a historical era if you are poor and can't enjoy it. It isn't "steampunk" yet though. Just because someone is dressed in 19th century attire doesn't make it Steampunk. But I would call this one "Mysticpunk" as she is holding a nice little glass of the Elixir of Life. Swig that down and live forever, or at least into the far future. You know you want to.
Ink on sketchbook page, about 4" x 5", April 20th, 2014.
And speaking of new life, Happy Easter and Happy Spring to my little band of Art By-Product readers.
