Our new dandy greeting cards by artist Fyodor Pavlov. #menswear #fineanddandyshop @fox_trotsky (at Fine and Dandy)
My Sherlock Holmes cards have already sold out on Etsy, but you can pick some up, along with your necessary purchase of a beautiful new bowtie or pocket square, at the Fine & Dandy Shop! I hear a few folks who are in town for the Baker Street Irregulars weekend have already done so - which pleases me to no end.
Alternatively, you can come to Hotsy Totsy: A Study in Pink, a Sherlock Holmes burlesque show this Tuesday for a chance to win a pack of my Sherlock Holmes cards and a pin-up boy calendar. And you know. See some hot hot ACD-inspired ass.
Sherlock Holmes and the other two fine gents are also available as greeting cards at the Baritarian Bazaar - good for any occasion. Or to hang over your bed, I don’t judge.
New greeting cards are here! I’ll be updating the Etsy shop today or tomorrow, and then all your dirty Valentine’s and fancy dandy stationery needs will be met!
We’ve got a pumpkin spice candle burning, apple-cinnamon pork chops and roasted root vegetables in the oven, the start of Downton Abbey’s third season all queued up for watching, and I have been painting this all day.
Have I made it clear just how much I adore autumn yet? I’m in heaven.
The fourth pin-up boy for the calendar is finished! An equestrian English aristocrat was the only way to go. I’ll post all four of them together later.
Bought some new ink to play with and quickly discovered this sketchbook is way too absorbent for ink, so I just stuck to my usual pens and a bit of watercolor while drawing some gents. I also accidentally Basil Hallwarded all over the boy on the bottom right.
Silhouette demons - another set of 2.5 by 3.5 inch miniatures. The one in the Elizabethan ruff and the two Edwardians (middle) are my favorites.
Also, hello, recent followers! Where’d you babies come from?
Some stress had built up over the last couple of weeks and jumped out at me suddenly at the end of last week, so I decided to not work on anything serious and just make some self-indulgent little drawings. The result was these 2.5 by 3.5 miniatures. I haven’t worked on watercolor paper in literally years, and I don’t really know how painting tiny details on paper I haven’t had practice on since forever is relaxing, but it worked for me.
The silver fox ended up looking like Vincent Price, and the brunette in the red waistcoat is sporting the haircut I described to my husband as “the hair that was the downfall of public school masters for centuries.” He told me the blond was grown-up Tadzio.
I’ll be selling these babies at MoCCA! Maybe I should do portraits of ladies too.
Tiny things I’m working on as stress relief.
One of my most beloved men, M.M.d.C.
Apparently drawings that I do while sleep-deprived and caffeinated to the point of shakes come out better than stuff I draw at any other point. The man with the monocle worries me in an arousing way. I think it’s the undercut.
I woke up today to a thunderstorm of apocalyptic proportions. It has not stopped since our fabulous boozing with the visiting relative and rock star, and it’s absolutely gorgeous. So I have spent the entire day in-doors, working on the costume and props for a new act we are debuting this Sunday, and finishing up this drawing. Even though I started it on Friday when I was home sick, it seems to suit the mood created by this downpour.
feellikedanzig said: Something involving…muttonchops? Or moths. Both are lovely and start with the letter ‘m’.
Why not both! And his name is probably Milo.
Dandy bones. Dandy boners?
