Hastenburaphobia: A fear of grass
This is a new word I learnt today. I believe I do have mild hastenburaphobia, although I am unsure if it is a valid diagnosis since it is mostly the strange creatures (mainly in my head) that lurk beneath the grass that frightens me. I almost wanted to give up researching for underground creatures for this picture because I am so worried that a picture of a worm or a slug might pop out. Nevertheless, I am glad that I went through with it because I do adore this illustration, especially the warm color tones that I will surely be using again.
I am also very proud of myself for the drastic improvement of my handwriting within these 2 months. I cannot think of a single person with worse handwriting than me. I had so little faith in my handwriting that for a long time, I have intentionally avoided using any text in my work. However, I have managed to find a trick to make it look aesthetically acceptable in my drawings, and I am rather pleased with myself!
And lastly, I have been featured in CreatureMag in their "Around The World" section! Click here to read the interview!
