Intricate Handmade Fantasy Creatures by Ellen Jewett

on Etsy | on deviantART

Born in Markham, Canada, Ellen Jewett took to shaping three-dimensional forms naturally at a young age. To Ellen, sculpting has always been about life, biological narratives and cultural statements. The tedious hours of labor act as the mysterious foundation from which each of her sculptures’ personality springs forth.

In 2007 Ellen completed her post secondary education with a degree in Biological Anthropology and Art Critique from McMaster University. She had already started Creatures from El in 2005 and upon graduation plunged into it full-time.

Ellen continues to supplement her knowledge with professional courses and apprenticeships. She aspires to pursue graduate work in anthrozoology whilst maintaining her life as a studio artist.

today was my last day in my creative writing class and my teacher gave everybody a piece of paper to write down a contract and to put it in our wallets. she said she did the same thing when she was younger and every now and then she’d brush by it and remember that she wanted to write. everybody took time to write out what they wanted and I just sat at the back of the class, sitting on the windowsill and I knew there was only one thing to write but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. at the end of the class after everybody left, I went to thank her for the year, and she told me that people should be reading my words for a long time, but they won’t be able to do that if I’m not around to write them. I showed her the blank piece of paper, and she said it was okay not to write anything, and then I wrote this. I learned the power of words in that class, I learned it was okay to vomit up half a dozen notebooks stained with blood and exploded pens because it means you have something to say.

When reading, we don’t fall in love with the characters’ appearance. we fall in love with their words, their thoughts, and their hearts. we fall in love with their souls.

I spent about a week, off and on, doing pen sketches for the 31 Day Homestuck Challenge! Now that they’re all done and it’s October and Andrew Hussie’s convoluted comic game is coming back, I’m gonna post one every day! If you don’t want to be spoiled for the comic or just don’t like Homestuck, blacklist “hsc” for the next four weeks. :) When I reach a group of ten entries in this challenge, I’ll post the pics on razzdoesthearts minus the commentary. :)
1) Fave Kid – pre-scratch
I really like all of the Beta kids, but John remains my favorite of them all. He starts off as pretty incompetent…and kind of stays that way, but in a manner which isn’t obnoxious. It always struck me that John was pretty aware that he’s a lame hero…and he’s fine with it! It’s a unique sort of protagonist that I find really refreshing. Besides that, he amuses me. The kid is just overall entertaining and a great representation of the dorkiest 13-year-old to ever live. He was also the first character we really got to know, but he’s not just a cypher for the reader, he’s his own character, and boy is it a fun one, even when he’s down. :)
