It is alphabet time again. & today is the day for the letter C, which I have special affection for because it begins my name. But what else…?

“How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale!

How cheerfully he seems to grin,
How neatly spreads his claws,
And welcomes little fishes in
With gently smiling jaws!”

This poem by Lewis Carroll introduces my favorite animal, the crocodile, which happens to begin with the letter C. These few lines are actually one of the reasons I began to love crocodiles so much.

Cranes: Sandhill cranes, paper cranes, any sort of cranes. Whether living or not, these birds are quite dear to me.

Cherry blossoms: , are a perfect symbol of winter ending, & I love it.

Charlotte Gainsbourg: An icon for style, for beauty, for music… for anything you would need an icon for, really. She is delicate in the wisest, coolest way.

Chuck Bass: this does not need to be explained. He’s beautiful & nothing can convince me otherwise!

I recently made this poster for my boyfriend. Haha, it’s perhaps a strange thing to make for someone, but there is a story behind it… & I like making art for people whenever I have the excuse. I’m a bit iffy with watercolors (that’s what I used… along with a bit of crayon & marker), but I think it turned out well enough.

On a somewhat-related note, I’m starting art lessons soon. I’m not sure whether I’ll be taking classes in painting or drawing yet… I’ve got to decide!… but it’ll be my first chance to be taught anything art-related since sixth grade! Long overdue and much anticipated.
