I love that you put in a lot of work and research regarding your art! I hope one day I can draw as beautifully as you do, and you've motivated me to do my own research regarding different clothing styles and points of research!!! Thank you!!!

I'm going through your historical fashion posts and LOVING THEM.  I live by Kent State University and we have a huge fashion school and a historical fashion museum there and i first got interested in how clothes and history intersect there.  I learned a lot.  Thanks for sharing
