The bird reaper

The bird reaper is a favourite character of mine. She wanders the earth taking the souls of birds whose time has come to an end....but this makes her sad and she shows deep compassion as she does her job. Here she is taking the soul of the very last moa especially sad time for her.

Bette and Dot Tattler

American Horror Story is an incredible show which has some of the coolest characters on TV! I'm especially enjoying the latest season "FREAK SHOW" which has some of my all time favourite characters.
Here's a little illustration i did of the Tattler twins played by Sarah Paulson.

Christmas Cards

I finally made my own Christmas cards this year! It's something I've been wanting to do for a long time but never get done. I'm stoked to see my little drummer boy and his little donkey in card form. 

I've also added this design to my Society 6 store.
