Pocket Princesses

Because I don't want to forget, but these are so awesome I cannot not share them: Pocket Princesses by Amy Mebberson.

Really, all the art on her tumblr is so much fun. It has a cartoon, almost chibi, feel to it, and covers the spectrum of Disney, My Little Pony, Darkwing Duck, Muppets and more (do those all fit on one spectrum?).

I'm a strong believer in keeping art nearby when you are a writer. There are reference photos that can useful in a more concrete-y, research way, there are photos that inspire worlds and stories, and then there are just drawings and pieces that are so much fun, they make you want to create something, too. Sometimes, a piece can do more than one.

Amy's work definitely makes me want to create as well, I just need to channel that into the writing instead of yanking out the sketchbook, not that that doesn't have its own ways of inspiring.
