Three things that I love : bones, butterflies (actually a moth..) and coffee. <3

Plus some tea, I suppose. Originally I dyed some watercolour paper with a very strong mixture of black tea and some brown ink, which always results in such pretty textures, not to mention the colour. Then I went to town with black ink pens, then shaded with a strong brew of coffee, and highlighted with some white ink.

Sabre-toothed cats have pretty skulls, and Comet moths are super neat. <3

The color is just gorgeous.  I've never heard of a comet moth before, I can see why they'd be such an appealing subject.
