Some things that have peaked my interest of late. Firstly the Tree Museum in Switzerland. Designed by landscape architect Enzo Enea the museum displays 2,000 species of tree, many against walls of sandstone. Doesn't it look beautiful? Like something out of a surreal film.
Lauren Dukoff takes wonderful photos, mostly of musicians. I am totally drawn in by this image of Devendra Banhart. Partially due to the fact that Mr Banhart is unfathomably attractive.
Trawling the archives of OMG That Dress! for incredible period/folk costumes and forever mourning the fact that such attire is no longer in vogue! Sigh.
For the time being I only have a couple more Living Things Books left in my shop.

I'm starting again with Picture Book Report. I totally failed to keep up with it last year (four posts in twelve months! Not so hot Stewart.) So i've chosen a new book and I'm good to go. I'm going to be working from Murukami's Norwegian Wood; one of my all time favourites. This is the first image that I came up with; a portrait of Naoko being all cold and sad and lovely. You can see the PBR blog post (where the image has type on) right here.

I did this drawing today as part of a larger project that I'm working on at the moment (to be revealed next month if all goes to plan). I thought I'd share this one as a taster of whats to come and to prove that I am actually drawing things and not just posting etsy links the whole time!

New year equals clear-out. Yesterday I took on the mammoth task of streamlining my wardrobe and today I'm dealing with the piles of drawings taking over my studio. Most of these are the original pencil drawings from my Living Things book with a couple of exceptions. As per usual if you are interested in buying a drawing then drop me an email at lizzy (at) abouttoday.co.uk and let me know where you are so I can calculate postage. I'm afraid I can only accept payment via paypal at this time.
Bear Head- SOLD
Deer Town- £14
Cossack Souslik- £18

Happy New Year all! I hope you all had suitably wonderful holidays. I'm glad to have had some time away from my desk to spend with family and friends but I'm glad to be back now and eager to get going on this years drawings!
For those that are interested my shop is open for business once again. I've added some of my Living Things books for those that want 'em. Residents of USA/Canada I recommend you get yours from the Little Otsu store as the shipping costs will be kinder to you!
