Boudicca, Celtic warrior queen of the Iceni people of Eastern England. After the Romans took their land, stripped her, flogged her and raped her daughters, she led a rebellion against them, destroying several cities and armies in the process. Badass.

I sometimes forget how relaxing it is to draw portraits of people - for me anyway. This one of Michael Fassbender took me about 45 minutes.

There's something very comforting about the moon. It is Earth's best friend - so far away, yet so close. I know it's always going to be there, in my lifetime anyway, a continuous glowing presence in the dark. According to Japanese folklore there is a rabbit in the moon. I enjoy a nice full moon. And this guy is enjoying one as well as he plays a shamisen.
