A few months ago, I bought a couple of drawings from the talented natural history illustrator ginasketch. I took them to a framer in Cambridge, hemmed and hawed over colours and widths, and left them there for several weeks.

I picked them up today, and they look brilliant.

Our little niece loves us with tentacly affection. I know because this arrived in the post last week.

I think she might have to practise a bit more before she is at Gina’s level.

More of Gina's work can be viewed here.

Is your niece doing pictures of Cthulhu?!

She must be going to a progressive school. :-)

I suspect Cthulhu was an extracurricular activity. And that she may have had some help from certain Lovecraft devotees in her household.

She's very good at infusing personality into her animal drawings, particularly through the brilliant renditions of the eyes!
