Two for one holiday special

Hello and Happy holidays to all my readers

I know I have been gone a while but I am here to reasure you that I am back and ready to present you with two holiday "gifts." Over these weeks I have finish two pieces one is a full page illustration for an editoral page for a interesting artical discribing the physical and mental affects the are created from lack of sleep. (Perfect for every hard working college student) What The second in a book cover for a fictional autobiography of a chossen historical figure. The person I chosse was Sarah Bernhardt, a famous actress from the early 1900's. I have always enjoyed acting and I thought this piece, which displays her famous silent film shot in a coffin and a skull from her star role as hamlet. That hamlet is still considered the best version of that play. All I have to do is give it text and I will be good to go.

Happy Tanksgiving - Milly

Happy Halloween

Dear Readers

I hope you all have a happy halloween. You will be happy to know the progress on my latest peice is coming along well. With that in mind I decided to have a little extra fun this Halloween by joining my classmates creating my own mask based on my carnavail reading piece. It uses a basic maquece mask as the base and then I spry painted it with multipule layers of gold sparkale paint. Then I painted pink and red lips and checks. All these elements together make the mask less frightening and give off a joyly and exciting feel one would have at a fair or carnival. I also added a clown hat to add an extra smile.
