The Aftershocks

I was asked to create a .gif of a house interior during an earthquake. The article chronicles the controversial aftermath of the devastating quake that happened in L’Aquila, Italy in 2009. I wanted to capture the movement of the “tremors” before the full-on earthquake, although this tremor is infinite, never resolving.
This image and the all the animation was made in Photoshop. thanks AD Erich Nagler!

I'm illustrating a children's book. It's my first time, my clients are expecting a lot, and I'm, well, not much. Any advice for a 15-year old start up?

OH. um….. well, I don’t know how qualified I am to actually give you advice since I have never been commissioned to illustrate anything… but… Can I just say that: I have seen your artwork, and it’s lovely. You have a wonderful style for illustrating children’s books, and great taste in picking out palettes.

I think you’ll be absolutely fine. Don’t doubt yourself so much, I know you probably think you’re not good enough, but you have to remember that they did ask YOU to do this job. Just work hard; show them how dedicated you are to this project, show/tell them your ideas; work closely with your client to know exactly what they want and how you can help achieve that.

(If anyone with a little more experience in this matter would share some advice, it would be appreciated)

Hello! I just wanted to say that your art is very amazing! Have a lovely day! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ





So my historical costuming resources list from 2011 was less than a page long- I’m not saying that I’ve learned a lot in the past three years, but this list is now sitting pretty at a solid nine pages.  Whew.  And people wonder why I want to redo this damn series.

This list is by no means an exhaustive one- it’s a list of (primarily western) historical fashion resources, both online and offline, that is limited to what I know, own, or use!  It’s a work in progress, and I’m definitely hoping to expand on it as my knowledge base grows.  First things first, how about a little:


  • Read, and read about more than just costuming.  Allowing yourself to understand the cultural and historical context surrounding the clothing of a particular region/period can be invaluable in sussing out good costume design.  Looking at pictures is all well and good, but reading about societal pressures, about construction techniques, daily routines, local symbolism, whatever else will really help you understand the rhyme and reason behind costuming from any given context.
  • Expand your costume vocabulary.  When you’re delving into a new topic, costuming or otherwise, picking up new terminology is essential to proper understanding and furthering your research.  Write down or take note of terms as you come across them- google them, look up synonyms, and use those words as a jumping off point for more research.  What’s a wire rebato?  How does it differ from a supportasse?  Inquiring minds want to know.
  • Double-check your sources.  Especially on the internet, and double especially on tumblr.  I love it, but it’s ground zero for rapidly spreading misinformation.  Books are usually your safest bet, but also take into account their date of publication, who’s writing them- an author’s biases can severely mangle their original source material.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for help.  Do everything you can to find out information on your own, but feel free to reach out to people with more specialized areas of knowledge for help!  Be considerate about it- the people you’re asking are busy as well- but a specific line of questioning that proves you’re passionate and that you respect their subject matter expertise can work wonders.

Okay, onto the links!


It’s impossible to overstate the importance of getting off the internet and looking into books!  God bless the internet, but books are (generally, this isn’t a rule) better-researched and better-sourced.  Bibliographies also mean each individual books can be a jumping off point for further research, which is always a fantastic thing.

Remember- owning books is awesome and you should absolutely assemble your own library of resources, but LIBRARIES.  Libraries.  You’ll be surprised to find what books are available to you at your local library.


Patterns fo Fashion books
Detailed, hand-drawn diagrams of historical fashion, inside and out.  Pretty amazing stuff.

Fashion in Detail books
Not what you want if you’re looking for photos of entire costumes- note the “in detail” bit up there.  Just a beautiful series, and great reference for all the little things you might miss otherwise.  The V&A has an amazing fashion collection, and it’s great to see them share it with the world.

Listen to this if you want to hear me and my friend dying in “a blaze of glory”.

jeez, it’s been ages since i’ve draw all 4 together.

jeez, it’s been ages since i’ve draw all 4 together.

I just found your tumblr and instantly fell in love with your art. I'm a big potterhead, and your potter related drawings just warm my heart. I'm rereading all the books, and I found myself having the biggest crush on Remus. Could you draw him, or all the Marauders together? Maybe playing with baby Harry...

Awwww anon, thank you so very much! I’ve actually got a little something. I’ll upload it soon (sorry for the super late reply, been a little busy)
