What makes you think you’re the one?

Another largely text free post with an unrelated post title. (I’ve been listening to Fleetwood Mac all day!) Please note: I’m not taking commissions at the moment as I simply can’t concentrate for long enough. :( Here are some places where you can buy my arts on things. Spreadshirt – CafePress – Red Bubble

I scream, you scream!

I scream, you scream!

I don’t have much to say at the moment, but I have been drawing and practicing watercolours. Painting, whether it be acrylic or watercolour, terrifies me.
