Fan Art Up (5): Doctor Who Quote


Fan Art Up! is a weekly feature hosted by Tabitha @ Not Yet Read. It is dedicated to showcasing our Fan Art and doodles inspired by entertainment media, whether it’s Books, Movies, Anime, Comics, etc. Or even your random self inspired art! Break out those dusty art supplies!

This week I broke down and decided to start painting with acrylic paints which I’ve never really used before. Man, do they smell awful! I ended up with a huge migraine but I’m glad I decided to give it a try, it’s definitely different than watercolor paints and I was surprised with how little paint I actually needed.

I’m hoping to stock up on some of these paintings and sell them, perhaps on Etsy if I get to the point of streamlining the process I bit better.

Inspired By – Doctor Who!


This is a quote from Doctor Who that I absolutely adore! Overall I’m pleased with it! The lettering could be a bit better since I’m new to the whole stencil thing (and had a serious hand cramp afterwards). I’ll have to buy some thicker plastic or start using cardstock for the letters so that I don’t have to fill in the gaps.

So what do you think?

Top Ten Tuesday: Series I Want To Start



Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Even though I’m trying my hardest to stay away from new series (and failing) I still have quite a few I want to start soon.

1. Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon

I’ve had the first book for like 3 or 4 years now and still haven’t read it. I’m not big into romance so it’s taking me a long time to be in the mood for a romance the size of an epic fantasy.

2. Abhorson series by Garth Nix

I’ve been told this is a ‘must’ on any fantasy lovers reading list so I figure since that’s my main genre I need to give it a try.

3. Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson

I love Sanderson’s other books (Elantris, The Way of Kings, & Steelheart) so I HAVE to read this.

4. The Lynburg Legacy by Sarah Rees Brennan

I own all three books but I’ve yet to start the series…I’ve heard great things about it, I just keep putting off to read other stuff.

5. Talon by Julie Kagawa

I’ve heard good and bad things about this one but I love Kagawa’s writing so I need to find out for myself, plus DRAGONS.

6. Snow Like Ashes by Sarah Rassch

Another awesome looking fantasy book! This one just came out so I might wait a bit before diving in.

7. Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Mass

I’ve had the first book for a long time now and I’ve yet to pick it up. I’ve only had one person tell me they didn’t enjoy it that much so I need to try it out myself.

8. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

I loved Archived and I’ve a lot of good things about her other books as well so this one is on my list of most anticipated.

9. Temeraire series by Noami Novak

DRAGONS! Plus there are a ton of fantastic reviews for it.

10. Newsoul trilogy by Jodi Meadows

Another dragon book (can you tell I like dragons?). I have the first book and I chat with Jodi on occasion on Twitter, love her ferrets…but I’ve yet to read the book. :/
