This idea began after purchasing my long awaited copy of Faeries illustrated by Brian Froud. Ever since I was a child I have regarded his work as true fantasy masterpieces. Sugar Plump Fairy is a small tribute to his influence and inspiration.
I didn't shy away from making my fairy in a less common image. She's round, and plump, yet sexy and mysterious! Froud was a fan of diverse forms, and so I decided to stray from my usual thin fairy. I love the results! She is a colorful girl with supernatural beauty to spare. This work measures 9 inches x 12 inches, and is done on Cold Press 140lb paper. You can see some progress pictures below, and the final work at the bottom!

About the Artist
I would call myself a Jack of all Trades, but mostly because I'm interested in many areas of art if not all! I graduated with a BFA in Fine Art from the University of North Texas with a focus on Watercolor. I always had dreams of creative writing, and in 5th grade I wasn't too bad! Art clearly won out for my attention, but writing will always have a place in my heart!
What better way to write, I say, than to share a blog, and practice my second love while talking about my first! With that said, I hope you all enjoy my ramblings and please hit me up with any questions. :D Contact me!
