Working on my first ever lithograph! For those who don’t know, its drawing or painting on a limestone slab with grease pencils or oil based inks to produce multiple prints. This is my first time doing it so I’m just testing the water with what I can do on my stone and eventually how much detail I can get. I haven’t gone through the whole process yet, but I feel like this is going to be one of my favourite mediums to work in.
'David (With Goliath)' Rebecca Ladds, 2011.
Detail and Progress of David. Rebecca Ladds, 2011.
Currently working on my own version of Michaelangelo’s ‘David’. He’s perfect as is, but a little bit of tattoos couldn’t hurt. ;)

I apologize for my absence for the last week and a bit. Life’s been crazy and good. I’m coming back to Toronto (after a small vacation) with a brain FULL of inspiration and energy to get back to your emails and messages (and mail out your orders)! Expect new things soon! As for now, all I have to post is an old photo.
Stay well babies!
Another ballpoint pen sketch I finished up today.
Just some sketchbook doodles! I forgot how much I loved drawing with just a regular ballpoint pen! The entirety of this was done in a pen I found under the desk at work. When we have spare moments at the shop we’re encouraged to sketch and draw. This is collected spare moments from the past week.
It’s a good exercise drawing without being able to erase. It makes you work with the mistakes you make instead of pretending they didn’t happen. I’m starting to love it.
A little drawing I did for Natasha Lillipore, who is the subject of my last Canonization piece, and we’re also penpals! She likes kittehs.
Anonymous: What sort of music (if any) do you listen to while working?
It really depends what kind of mood I’m in! Recently it’s been these full albums:
20 Odd Years by Buck 65
Blood Pressures by The Kills
Two Dancers by Wild Beasts
Arular and Kala by M.I.A.
Brothers by The Black Keys
Lord of the Rings soundtrack or The Boat that Rocked Soundtrack!
And if I’m in a particular mood where I don’t want music I put on the Stephen Fry narrated Harry Potter audiobooks! :3
I definitely get inspired by whatever I’m listening to! It’s good to change it up frequently.
Because I like to start new things before finishing other things:
New Canonization piece! This time with a familiar face! Borrowing (with permission) some of Natasha Lillipore’s features because I couldn’t resist.
