Romaine Brooks' 1924 portrait of Una, Lady Troubridge

Here's my ink study for today's @StudioTeaBreak drawing challenge:

Una Lady Troubridge

Here's the original painting. If you get a chance, read about Romaine Brooks, she had a fascinating life. And see other #PortraitChallenge interpretations here on Twitter! I hope I get some more time to try it again, with the pooches.

Here's another one by Rainbow Orchid creator Garen Ewing: I couldn't resist today's @StudioTeaBreak #PortraitChallenge - Evelyn Crow, after Brooks' 'Una, Lady Troubridge' (1924)

One more thing, huge congratulations to The Phoenix Comic for five solid years of awesome weekly comics!!

You can spot my name and Philip Reeve's; due to time constraints (comics take so long to make!) we only managed one strip, Jinks & O'Hare Funfair Repair in Issue 44, but it went on to spawn a whole book a few years later. Amazing Jamie Smart managed to have comics in every single issue!! You can either subscribe to The Phoenix Comic weekly magazine here or buy compilations of its strips in books (or single issues) in its online shop here.
