The Legend of Korra Crochet Gloves by sapphiresphinx
The Legend of Korra Crochet Gloves
Crochet. So I watched all of Avatar: The Last Airbender and was so bummed when it ended. I had heard that Korra wasn't nearly as good, so I didn't really bother checking it out until recently. Boy, was I misinformed. I'm completely in love with this show! As I was bingewatching, I thought Korra's armband and bracers would make some awesome gloves. The narrow triangles were a complete pain to deal with (ah, the joyous constraints of working with yarn), but I did what I could. It was also a nice little stashbuster project in between some larger ones that are taking forever. 

Pattern credit: me!

Color Wheel
I've been pretty lackadaisical about uploading photos recently. Anyway, here is the very abstract result of my playing around with a water glass in front of my Christmas tree! 
Fitzroy, King of the Goldfish by sapphiresphinx
Fitzroy, King of the Goldfish
Watercolor pencils. My king! I know animals wearing crowns has been done before, but I wanted to try my hand at it. I was thinking of painting in a color background (blue?) but then...I didn't. Great story, I know.
Himalayan Porter by sapphiresphinx
Himalayan Porter
Near Lobuche, Nepal. Here is a porter on the trail to Everest Base Camp, near the small village of Lobuche. I was amazed and impressed by the strength of the porters who were able to haul all those heavy bags!
Adventure Time Self Portrait by sapphiresphinx
Adventure Time Self Portrait
Ink and watercolor pencils. I actually drew this for a Facebook profile (looooser), but I guess I can throw this up here too. I started watching Adventure Time and quickly became totally obsessed with it, so I wanted to draw myself in that style. I really love reading and have a lot of books these days (long story), so I decided to draw myself sitting on a pile of some of my favorite books.

The book list from the top is: Adventure Time (obviously not a real book), House of Leaves, The Big Book of Fish (not a real book), A Prayer for Owen Meany, Hamlet the Pig (not a real book...but Hamlet is my favorite Shakespeare play!), Grimms' Fairy Tales, Le Petit Prince, The Wind Up Bird Chronicle, and 1984. I also decided to draw a certain someone familiar on my shirt!
