I have posted before about how sometimes when I’m blocked I like to draw Princesses – in effect, my princesses are blockade runners.

There is an Inner Critic who tells me that my Princesses don’t really like me. They would much prefer to have been drawn by a Rackham, a Himmapaan, a Dulac, or Adrienne Segur. Or really, any artist with a better eye for detail, a finer hand, a stronger sense for color.

Sigh. Go to your room, Inner Critic. You may be right, but I am going to do this anyway.
