Magic School!

I drew this Hogwarts-inspired diagram years ago, as an aide for English classes to help students learn the names of rooms in a house. …And of course all houses have turrets and potion cupboards… But I like the drawing, so I gave it a sepia tint and put it on RedBubble for anyone who’d like a copy. Might also be fun for people who like colouring-in. ;)

Prints and other shiny things can be found here.

Horror Valentines!

Sometimes hearts and flowers will only do if the heart’s cursed and the flowers are omnivorous. If you wish to tell someone you love them horribly then let one of these dear little monsters be your messenger.
