fashion from old people

I actually DREW A DRESS for once (Vera, don’t faint) — it’s a holiday frock from the 1930s, and it is being modeled by a character from my new book of short horror comics, THROUGH THE WOODS, which just came out this week!

Hi, this is Emily, and I know this isn’t a dress, but I thought I would put up a link to this project all the same for folks that might be interested…

I’m part of the new line-up of art books for Benign Kingdom’s Spring 2013 collection! In addition to a lot of pictures of monsters and babes — such as those in the cover image above — my book also includes a number of my images from this here blog. Please check out the Kickstarter campaign, along with the work of the other artists involved (because they are tremendous): Gigi DG, Phil McAndrew, and Tyson Hesse! I should also mention that art books from previous Benign Kingdom collections can be purchased at their fancy new store.

Thanks!

Hm, does this count? Oh probably not, but still: Common Clothing, from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim by Bethesda (via this really great overview of the various costumes available in game).
