portrait challenge: selika lazevski

Here's my morning sketch (pencil and watercolour) of Selika Lazevski, based on a photo taken in 1891 at the studio of Paul Nadar in Paris. I found it via this Paris review article by Susanna Forrest, where you can see the original photo. She's so striking!

Just a note about my upcoming picture book, Grumpycorn: my agent Jodie just tweeted this great review from Fiona Noble in The Bookseller. Exciting!
