Lady Mary

Let's start off with a bit of sad-ish news. I won't be contributing to Matchbook Magazine any longer with my What's in my Bag illustrations of iconicly stylish people.

I've really enjoyed creating these illustrations for the past two years, and am a bit sad that they don't think there is a place for them any longer, as they are giving the magazine a bit of a revamp. Oh well, I plan on continuing the series on my own time. Even better now really, because I can choose to draw absolutely anyone I'd like to. (Let's look on the bright side.)

So here is this month's What's in my Bag illustration of our favorite British tv character, Lady Mary.

Since I live in Europe we've already had the pleasure of seeing the 3rd season already. So tempting to tell you all the dramatic things that happen, but I'll contain myself.

My motto is: Keep calm and act like Lady Mary Crawley! ;)

Love the illustration!

I'll miss seeing you in Matchbook, but I look forward to seeing more bags! :)

RKP glad to hear that my illustrations will be missed. But I certainly won't stop.

HA, I'm much more on the Cousin Violet side of things (she's so admirably bad ass!).

So sad to hear you won't be in MM anymore, but I was flipping through the last Pouf and was so happy to see your illustrations throughout!

What a wonderful idea! Just love Downton and purchased the season 3 so I don't have to wait to watch the whole season via our PBS station. Such a treat to look at this morning, Thank you !!

Oh this is sad news indeed; I always looked forward to your monthly page in Matchbook Mag (I can't remember exactly, but I'm sure this is how I first discovered you too).

For what it's worth, you can have a place on my blog anytime you want!!

P.S. love this Lady Mary drawing (and Downton)

I just want to say that I adore all your illustrations and blog! You have inspired me to sell my own art work which I've only recently had the confidence to do! I love this Lady Mary collection of items! I'm sure you have bigger and better things to come! x
