Regency hunk

I don't know what possessed me to draw this, but I assure you, it was excessively diverting.

Alphabooks - Mr. Darcy

I chose Mr. Darcy for Alphabooks this week (of course I did Mr. Darcy, I had no choice, really).  Mr. Darcy, regency hunk and eligible bachelor.  And that's the Jane Austen font in use - based on her handwriting!

In other Austen related news, The Guardian had an article about a portrait of Jane Austen at age 13, and inexplicably decided to link to a comic on this very blog. (my link is in the last paragraph).

Illustration Friday sketch

Alas, I didn't get my Illustration Friday done in time... here's the sketch of what it would have been if I had gotten my act together in time.  Oddly enough, the prompt was "Hurry!"  I guess I should have taken that to heart a bit more.

Alphabooks - Cat Chant and Chrestomanci

Well, it's the letter C this week for Alphabooks - and I chose Cat Chant (whose real name is Eric) and Chrestomanci (whose actual name is Christopher Chant), from Charmed Life by Diana Wynne Jones. 

Chrestomanci is quite dapper, and I had quite a crush on him as a kid, and to be honest, still do.  He's just so dreamy. This is also quite a bit what I imagine Mr. Darcy to look like.  Probably my Pride and Prejudice obsession all stems from reading Charmed Life.
