Hello, I'm an English female grown-up and an enthusiastic purveyor of various forms of internet whimsy. This is a place to show you stuff I've drawn or written or otherwise cobbled together, as well as stuff I simply like the look of. You can also find me on Livejournal and Twitter.

Goodness me, Benedict’s come over all 1950s. Perhaps he’s about to tell the audience that this show is automatic, it’s systematic, it’s hydromatic – why, it’s GREASED LIGHTNING!
