Since I've added quite a few friends since the last time I did this -

I keep another blog at Eithin, in which I talk about art & design, and post things I've done or been working on. (I do printmaking, painting, drawing, calligraphy, some photography, and basically some of anything else that catches my eye. There's a gallery here, which I update from time to time with what I think are the keepers.)

I do sell originals or prints, and will usually be happy to take on custom orders or specific projects if anyone's interested. The digital versions are CC:BY licensed (unless I've given a photo credit, as here) so they're free to reuse, modify, and generally muck around with so long as you link back to my original.

There's an LJ feed at [livejournal.com profile] eithinarts, too.

Have a work-in-progress picture, too. (Flickr link - the original post is here.) It's an attempt to represent the firework dragon Gandalf summons at Bilbo's birthday party, as it might appear if The Fellowship of the Ring were a mediaeval illuminated manuscript. (Incidentally, Pauline Baynes got her start on illustration with some reinterpretations of manuscript marginalia.)

Dragon 1 - WIP

It's currently sitting on my workboard with the first colour coat - red, naturally - drying.

Dragon is beautiful *and* cute.

Thank you! I was trying to avoid "fierce", so "cute" is entirely acceptable.

Indeed, it is a gentle/peaceful-looking dragon.
