Shelly and Myrtle is part of the Viridian Jungle Fantasy Series
This drawing is the first one drawn for Circle Portraits, before it was a book! Many of my drawings are inspired by real things witnessed in my life. One strange day, I saw a woman with a strange hairdo that sort of reminded me of Princess Leia (nerd alert), and also sort of reminded me of a snail shell. So when I got home, I doodled a surreal interpretation of my inspiration and encircled her in an art nouveau style frame, and voila! The first drawing of Circle Portraits was born.
I call her Shelly, and she hangs out with Myrtle the turtle ever since they were hatched. Have I mentioned I’m weird?
