Here is a stumpwork death's head hawk moth. It's out of control, really. Glow-in-the-dark paint = What was I thinking? It was fun to do. I made more mistakes than corrects on this one. As always, design, design, design first, create second. :)
This light bulb was fun, easy and quick. There is a lot to be said for accepting a challenge, but it's nice to do something quick and easy sometimes, too. This is from my own pattern modeled after an image of an old style light bulb. Here is the image if you'd like to do one for yourself.
Just some images from the new year.
