So, when I was a little girl, I never wanted a prince charming on a white horse to come and take me to his kingdom as most of my friends did. Instead, I was reading Jane Austen's novels and dreaming of how I would grow up and move to England where I would meet a perfect British gentleman with beautiful blue eyes, who would take me to see Shakespeare plays and with whom I would spend afternoons drinking Earl Grey tea with milk, and having intellectual conversations.
So much for that...

In brief, I have given up on that dream a long time ago and it has become a sort of private joke. But then, lately, I have started watching some interviews with a certain British actor (brace yourselves, tons of portraits of him are probably coming...) And every single little detail about him painfully reminds me of that childish daydream. And I get lost in it again.

What you guys just witnessed is the precise reason why I am most likely going to die alone with 40 cats. :D

This has also been my dream since I was little. I would totally love to meet this British actor, though I don't think my prince will be British

Ok, so you're (in my opinion) one of the best artists on this website. Everything you do is so detailed. Do you teach? I'd love to learn from you.

This is exquisitely done. The art style is beautiful (so detailed!), and the coloring is lovely.

There is nothing wrong with dreaming, even if you know that dream will never be realized. It is dreams that help us to look beyond what we "know" to be true, and that ability to go beyond our senses and even our beliefs is what inspires us to imagine and create...

Sorry for the fortune cookie moment. I will counteract that by saying this picture reminds me a bit of Jim Henson's Labyrinth.
