I am a compulsive drawer, I love to have a pencil in my hand and a blank sheet of paper, and watch things appear (on the bus, in my lectures, at 3am when I should be asleep...). I really like to be able to use art to raise awareness of human rights issues, and I love illustrating stories.

Thanks for dropping by!

Congratulations to all the winners of the latest :icongrimgloomtale: contest, with the theme of 'Mermaids'. It was hard to vote, so many amazing entries!

In first place, Checanty whose work I can never go past. In this one I particularly love the shapes and colours and shading, and the way it tells a story.

Beach Holiday by Checanty

Some more of Jana's work:

25 rewrite by Checanty   Woodlandprincess by Checanty   Porcelain by Checanty

Second place winner: EccentricTeatime

Waterbaby by EccentricTeatime

More of Sammy's work:

The Clockwork Wimble by EccentricTeatime   Post-Morning Half Bruncheon by EccentricTeatime   Patron Saint of Children by EccentricTeatime

In third place, TrollGirl

Enigma De Profundis by TrollGirl

And some more of her work:

Two For Tragedy by TrollGirl   Happy Little Family by TrollGirl   Chesh and Totoro by TrollGirl

The literature winner is ThornyEnglishRose, with a very funny take on the original selkie legend that I loved!

Some more of Rosey's work:

It's a... You DecideThe doctor said, 'You might: raise it as a boy; raise it as a girl; raise it as nothing in particular and see how it develops; or raise it as a popular attraction.'
The farmer and his wife had a lot of talking to do.  A girl would be useful for keeping the house, and never leave it as the others would.  She could not be married, of course.  A spinster living with her parents and then her brother (who was still to come) would not be thought odd.  People would ask for her hand, but reasons to refuse could be found.  After all, they had no shortage of daughters.
It was a son they needed.  If it were a boy, no one would ask to marry him.  They might wonder why he did not take a wife, but that was all right.  Lots of men were unmarried.  An unmarried man was more respectable than an unmarried woman.  Of course, men must work.  What if this child had neither strength to work the land nor intelligence to run the business?  The farm m
