Ever After the book. You will see me all day promoting around the social verse but you may wonder ..WHY? Well I am going to be frank. Because I really like it. There are tons of step by step books out there but very few Style development books. Of the style development books even fewer have any actionable advice that could help an aspiring artist but this one does! FOR real in my opinion. You can find this in all the book buying places

I adore Tamara Laporte and everything whimsical! But I especially love fairy tales. My favourite is Cinderella.
