I was lucky enough to have spent some time with Voltaire this past weekend (he asked me out on a date! Apparently he's a fan of my work!) And we got to talk about art, music, and future projects we want to work on together. I felt really inspired after that, so I've been rushing to finish up a few commissions and get going on some new things <3

I've been asked several times to make a "Jane Eyre" piece, but someone finally commissioned it, so I had no excuse! This was really fun to make! I might have to do "Wuthering Heights" next...

I'm currently reading it,  I just got to the part where she left Gateshead, but I'm already enraptured! I always thought that Jane would grow up to be sublime, just like how she is in your picture (Despite everything Abbott and the Reeds said, even when she was a child I'm certain that she was beautiful.)

Can I request Wuthering Heights next?  While I love all three Brontës, Emily has to be my favorite.

But before that, just, wow ! I love this piece, pictures so much the dynamics between them and Jane's decisive and straight forward personality :)

I love the proposal scene these two have, it's just about one of the most passionate I've ever seen and your art is fantastic!

dammit :( i was looking forward to you doing some bronte, because i thought your style would suit it, and i can imagine that it will very much suit wuthering heights. but here you've done what everyone does, especially the people casting for the screen versions of jane eyre. you've made jane beautiful. and shes not meant to be. thats not jane.
rochesters good though.

This is fantasic! Loving the palette! :) Have you read The Great Sargasso Sea, by any chance? It's like a prequel to Jane Eyre, from the mad wife's perspective.
