Weekly thingy and the Six of Cups/Twelve Dancing Princesses

6 cups! 12 princesses! No more than 24 arms (actually less because not everyone’s arms are visible but definitely NO MORE.

I showed several people this drawing at various stages of completion, including posting it here last week after the mistake had already happened, and neither I nor anyone else noticed that I GAVE THE PRINCESS HOLDING THE JUG AND CUP AND HER SISTER’S HAND THREE GODDAMN ARMS.

I had already inked and painted most of the skin tones before I spotted it. Sigh.

Anyway if you’re wondering why there’s a weird stand in use, holding the cup up off the table at the necessary height, that’s because I picked holding hands with her sister as the more important action and painted over the cup hand.


Places to buy stuff!

Did I miss something?  I think that’s everything.


What’s making me happy this week:

I got to see a small group of friends yesterday and oh man did we all need it really badly! Hopefully we can make hangouts happen a little more often, it’s such a fucking treat to just sit around with friends not on a Zoom call or in a text chat.

    Good problem solving! Also makes for an excellent focal point–I like the mirror/pitcher/cup triangle. That’s a nice happy accident, there.

    I’d like to think I would have told you (I am that friend who warns of spinach in the teeth) if I’d seen it, but it was so invisible that, even with your map, I had a hard time finding it. In high school, my daughter used to try to introduce invisible impossibilities into her artwork. The extra arm is right up her alley.
