I’ve realised that all my work is scattered around various points of the internet: Instagram, dA, Tumblr etc. so now I’m thinking that I’d like to create a central base to exhibit all mediums of my work. And where else better than facebook?
On my sparkly, shiny new facebook page you’ll find discount codes for my Etsy store, giveaways, jewellery, sketches, Youtube videos, Instagram posts, plus all the watercolour and digital pictures that I don’t post here on dA! It will also function as a way for me to directly interact with people in forms of discussions, polls, blogs etc.
And while I
Print PacksI've been using Redbubble for a while now as a means of distributing art prints, but because they don't offer them in packs I've set up a new site where you can purchase them at a cheaper price than on Redbubble.
Hannah Alexander Artwork
The site features the entire collection of my Nouveau Princesses, plus a bunch of watercolour art that I don't often post here. Right now the princesses are all one size at 12 x 8 inches, and there's a mix and match option too!
I'll definitely consider expanding the collection there if people are interested, as well as adding other products such as mugs and phone cases which will once again be cheaper than Redbubble. However, if you're looking for individual prints, my Redbubble store is still your best bet.
Side note: I haven't been drawing for a long while but hopefully I'll get
Art Theft: Part 2EDIT: shop owner has now removed artwork! Thanks everyone
I suppose it never ends! Despite putting watermarks on all my work now, these little thieves still manage to sink their grubby claws into it.
Today, it's this person: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/PhoneFluff?section_id=14988270&ref=shopsection_leftnav_1
If you have a moment, please report her shop. Even though the other stolen art is familiar, I'm not sure who the artists are, so if you know them, please inform them! Or tell me and I'll inform them
Features, Flower Meanings and Ellen PageI'll be writing a more interesting journal entry soon, but for now, have some filler!
Firstly, just a little update. I'm going be finally completing my Disney Mucha Princess series within the next few months! I'm also going to be redesigning a few of the ones I'm unhappy with. Once they're all done, I'll be selling complete print packs in my Etsy store, as well as gift bags! More on that later.
A lot of people asked me where I get the flower meanings I use in my princess series from. This website has pretty much every flower and their respective meaning you could ever want! So there ya have it.
I also urge you all to go and watch Ellen Page's inspiring, honest and moving speech about sexuality and homophobia. It very nearly had me crying at the end of it. We need more people like Miss Page to represent an often misunderstood and downtrodden part of our society.<b>
Commissions: CLOSEDFor a limited time during December and the New Year I’m opening my commission slots. Here’s all the info:
How much is it going to cost me?
(I.e face and shoulders)
Digital Bust : £15
Watercolour Bust: £20
There is an extra charge for adding a background. The price will vary depending on the intricacy of the background but the starting cost is £5.
Small additional features such as flowers and accessories can be free of charge, depending on desired intricacy. Additional characters will be an extra 40% of the cost, minus background charges. E.g, if you wanted a Digital Portrait featuring two people it would be £15 + £6 (40% of £15)
[Boing! Boing!]How do I pay?[Boing! Boing!]
Ebay Art TheftA fellow Deviant kindly informed me of an art thief selling pendants imprinted with stolen artwork on Ebay.
My stolen art: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Disney-Tangled-Rapunzel-Princess-Art-Deco-Pendant-Necklace-Disneyland-Jewelry-/221302867109?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3386adc4a5&_uhb=1
Thief's shop: http://www.ebay.com.au/sch/courtneydisney/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid3686
I recognize some other work there but I'm not sure who they belong to. If you know who they are then please do contact them. For once I give permission to spam this shop to hell. I don't tolerate art theft in any form (especially as that particular painting of mine took forever to complete!).
Anyway, I hope someone will be able to inform the other artists. Thanks for your time
Just a friendly post letting you all know that I've set up an Instagram! I've been working on lots of side projects, including some Naruto cosplay stuff, so if your curiosity has been mildly aroused please hit me up. Also, leave your Instagram name in the comments and I'll hit you back
My Instagram name is: hannah_alexander24
Also, I had a bit of a run in with one of these strange role playing accounts on Instagram, or whatever the heck she called it. Some kind of shrine to Princess Bubblegum. Anyway, it had a ton of fanart done by a variety of artists, none of them credited. She wasn't claiming them to be her own, but I still don't massively agree with this shrine concept. Fanart isn't pubic domain and I think it's polite to credit. I get pretty mad when I see my artwork posted uncredited. She said she didn't know the artists, just pulled them off google images, but I still think there should have been a disclaimer or something. Any thoughts?
Mucho love :hu
Away With Thee, Mental IllnessOh, hai. So I'm gonna talk about something totally personal to me, yet something that's shared by millions of people every day. And I NEVER talk about this stuff. For the first time in seven years I've only just managed to talk about it to someone and it felt good, and after that I was able to tell someone else, which also felt good, so now I'm gonna tell all y'all.
(Please note that this isn't a cry for attention or sympathy. I'm just sharing my story with the kindling hope that it might help or comfort people who suffer in a similar way).
When I was seventeen I inexplicably developed a case of social anxiety. I don't know much about the hows or whys but I can tell you this: it totally messed me up. Back then I was in college (all you Americans call it High School) and although I had some awesome friends, some days I couldn't bring myself to leave the house much less go on crazy social adventures out of hours.
Schooling was an issue. I missed so mainly classes. Sometimes I'd be off fo
Women as Sex ObjectsWarning: Imma 'bout to rant.
First off I'd like to point out that I'm not a raving feminist. I acknowledge that women are not equal in western society (despite corporate efforts that seem to be more about statements and false enthusiasm on the subject rather than actually taking women seriously) and I don't think we will be equal for a long time, if ever. Just how it is. Unfortunate (from the perspective of a woman), but just how it is.
ANYWAY. Here's my rant. I'm really tired of a female character being undermined by her being half nude. Really, really tired of it. And I'm not talking about artistic nudity, I'm talking about ass-cheek flashing skirts, bikini tops and little else (I'm looking at you, Japan).
I love a strong female lead, but they're so rare. Writers find it so hard to create a complex female character; they're either so brave and outspoken that they become butch and unattractive by design, or they're a sex object. A hopeless damsel in distress or someone who can hold th

Norman Rockwell Tribute by Sarafinconcepts
Few artists have so definitively reflected the lives of average Americans as Norman Rockwell.
He began his lifetime dedication to being the “America’s Illustrator” as the 19-year-old art editor for Boys’ Life, the house publication of the Boy Scouts of America. A few years later he assumed his more famous position at The Saturday Evening Post, though he never broke his ties with the Boy Scouts. His first great achievement painting everyday scenes of America in his signature hyper-realistic style was
Photographs and paintings of stars occupy that category of things you know are so, and yet it’s not quite possible to believe. One example is radio or television “signals” traveling in “waves” through the air, only to be reassembled for your listening or viewing pleasure in your living room radio or TV. Looking at clusters of stars lighting up the night sky like massive storm clouds, it’s impossible to think of those stars, those points of light, as separate massive burning suns, even though I know it’s so. Sometimes the most powerful magic requires no deception at all. The natural universe is more mystifying in its sheer numbers than any magician’s most mind–bending sleight of hand.

Bill Murray: Can A Painting Save A Life?
Bill Murray by chunkslayer
Sometimes a painter’s vision expresses and inspires what the zen philosopher’s words can only define and describe.
When remarkable lives defined by success and abundance are reviewed from their beginnings, it is remarkable that the narrowest of paths, sometimes a precarious balancing between life and death itself, led to the decision to fight on when failure seemed certain. S
Who is Dr. Strange?
Who is Dr. Strange?
Dr Stange colored by DM-P18
For several months the world has been asking the question ‘Who is Doctor Strange?’
The faces of Ethan Hawke, Johnny Depp, Jon Hamm, Joaquin Phoenix, Tom Hardy, Jared Leto have been click bait for a thousand sites waiting for news of the star of the next Marvel movie franchise. According to Mike Fleming over at Deadline it now looks like Marvel have finally landed their perfect Doctor Strange in Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch.
But while everyone is chasing the casting news, who is asking the real question here of ‘Who is Doctor Strange?’
Collection: Haunted Houses
Coming across a deserted house, whether hidden by the distance of a rolling countryside or by the shadows of adjoining city ghetto dwellings, is like stumbling across an unnoticed, unburied corpse. It is obviously dead now, but once it was full of lives. Coming across a haunted house is different. Deserted or still occupied, it is a place where lives, unsatisfied, have refused to move on into a full death. The houses reflect their tenants. They are living dead structures, refusing to return to dust.
“What terrified me will terrify others; and I need only describe the spectre which had haunted my midnight pillow”

Halloween is a time for masks. Aliens, zombies, vampires and werewolves will soon walk the suburban streets in search of tasty treats. But then there is the next level of masks—the likenesses of movie stars, politicians and other celebrities with their most unflattering features exaggerated. Cheap shots, to be sure, but alibied as “satire.” We finally arrive at the “non–off–the–rack” mask–making of actual make–up artists. Here’s where the mask one chooses tells us things about the person we only thought we knew. You see, the scariest thing about masks is their very concept—of a friend or loved one, beneath the surface, not really being the person you know at all. That is a truly fearful thi
