How do you dress a bat? Those wings make things tricky but not impossible. Luckily, the animan evolved in such a way that made the tailor’s job easier ;)

I have a Jabberwocky!

Well a sketch any way! I have decided he is going to be one of the Jacks for my Alice in Wonderland themed playing card deck! Luckily I am not insane enough (or clever/talented enough) to draw a Jabberwocky double faced like face cards are meant to be. I am sure it will be okay though. 

So yeah, I am being good and working away with my deck! I have a sketch of the King of Hearts too, I am not 100% about that though, I will have to see it inked I think. 

So cards I am working on and have not posted yet are:

1. Queen Alice (Queen of Spades)

2. The White Queen (Queen of Clubs)

3. The Mad Hatter (Jack)

4. The Jabberwocky (Jack)

5. King of Hearts

It’s a little out of my comfort zone to post this but here goes: Two years ago today I was diagnosed with a rare and severe neurological disorder called Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension.
So, Intracranial Hypertension meaning abnormally high pressure in my scull and around my brain. Idiopathic meaning that there is no known cause or cure for this. We found out that I had this disorder through a routine physical where it was noted my vision wasn’t 100% so it was almost an accident. Although, the diagnosis out me through months and months of testing, multiple spinal taps to relieve the pressure, and more daily medicines then I could count that caused me to involuntarily lose 25+ pounds because of having no appetite, I can confidently say I am finally better.
Now, two years later, I am on the lowest dosage of medication I have ever been on, I only visit the doctor every 6-8 weeks when it used to be every other week, and I haven’t been to the emergency room in almost a year when I used to have to go (on average) every 3 weeks.
The above pictures are two of the many times I had to be rushed to the ER to get a spinal tap and or get migraine medicines. The other two pictures I found a while back that I thought I related to so well and I loved. It helped me a lot at one point.
So, there’s my long and boring story but i thought id go for it.

If you want to know anything else about IIH or me and/or you have IIH yourself, feel free to message me any time. I love to talk and share stories. :)

The next time I see this post, it’s going to have a lot of notes.

"When I was a kid, I believed you would become a mermaid when you went in the water to swim".
I really loved the little mermaid as a kid growing up so I had the warped perception you became a mermaid when you entered the water ahaha. This is me learning to swim with my cousin! This piece is for a gallery show at work.
