Lavender Green Illustration Capturing magic, one illustration at a time! Wife. Mom. Fangirl. I have loved drawing since I can remember and love to use my ability to create artwork that captures a moment or tells a story.

Coming Soon!
�I’m running a @Kickstarter (that is currently under review, so like it’s all planned and stuff!) for my next set of pins.

I’ve been working on these for a while now and there are still a few more designs to come as stretch goals. I’m so excited to share sneak peeks of those as this all gets moving! �
I’m seriously so proud of these pieces and they will be available as both hard enamel pins and stickers. After this (hopefully) successful Kickstarter, the pins and stickers will also be available through Etsy and any in-person events that I attend. ��#pinstagram #starwarspins #enamelpins #pincollector #pingamestrong #bensolo #kyloren #daisyridley #adamdriver #rey #reynobody #reyskywalker #jedi #starwars #starwarsfanart #fantastypins #pintrading #pinsforsale #pinpresale #crowdfunding

Lavender the Librarian

Hi! Hello! Welcome! This is my blog. I'm a blogger. I blog now.

Hi! Hello! Welcome! This is my blog. I'm a blogger. I blog now. Anyway, what will you find here? Oh, not much, just cool book reviews, "bookstagram" type image content, librarian ramblings, and the occasional outcry of a mother pulling her hair out during the pandemic. I may also share crafty things...

A very SWarzy top nine of 2020.

Super proud to have sold the embroidery piece from #stitcherotica!

Also, the Rey costume still fits A almost a year later!

#WIP
�- Spoilers in comments will be deleted kthnkx -
�A quick study of Ahsoka Tano in my style. I was a newcomer to #CloneWars once Disney+ came around and I decided immediately that I love this character. I wish she’d been around when I was a kid! ��I recently had to replace my iPad Pro because it gave me the black screen of death and I LOST ALL OF THE ART THAT I’VE CREATED IN @PROCREATE OVER THE LAST 2 YEARS.
�Needless to say, I’m devastated. I’m using this as an opportunity to start over, though. I’ve learned a lot over the years and I want to task myself with doing more finished pieces instead of rough sketches. I guess I’m kind of reinventing my workflow. �
This is the first piece on my replacement iPad. I’m using some jing sketch brushes and plan to do this as a fully painted piece instead of f my typical inks and colors. I want to start trying new/harder things

8. Luke Skywalker

I really wanted to do an ink wash sunset 🌅

I thought Luke’s Final scene in #thelastjedi was beautifully done. The confrontation with Kylo, the colors on Crait, and then the final scene where he became one with the force were just *chef’s kiss* in the cinematography department.

Luke has always been one of my favorite heroes and I was sad to see him “go,” but this was a perfect passing of the torch (er, lightsaber) to Rey.

Ink wash and micron. 6x8.

10.7.2020 - Padmé Amidala

Debate night drawing at @dharmalife (while wearing a mask and respecting social distance like the responsible person I am)

I always loved this scene, but I view it differently since 2016. The United States has started to resemble the Galactic Republic a lot more than a lot of would like and so Padmé’s iconic line to Bail Organa in Ep 3 mirrors our own society a little too closely.

“This is how liberty dies; with thunderous applause.”

Micron + Liquitex Ink! In iridescent bright gold and deep violet. 6x8”.

10.5.2020: Ezra Bridger

It’s not perfect, but it’s fun ❤

I am just finishing watching Star Wars Rebels for the first time (I know, I know) and have loved the storytelling in it. Ezra has been such an interesting character to watch develop throughout the course of the series and I love the family dynamic of the Ghost crew. I would LOVE to see Ezra pop up in S2 of the Mandalorian, but, well, that seems like a bust so far. Did anyone else get way too excited and then super sad about that teaser the other day?

Strathmore 6x8” Mixed Media + Pentel brush pen + Liquitex Ink! In Yellow Orange Azo and Copics in YG11 and YG17 for the saber ❤

10.2.2020 - Ahsoka Tano and 10.3.2020 - Anakin Skywalker

When the #CloneWars debuted 12 years ago, I really didn’t think I’d like it that much. I was an adult, I was married, I didn’t have kids, and, as much as I love #StarWars, I didn’t have time for cartoons.

I finally watched the entire series on @disneyplus earlier this year and I couldn’t be happier that I finally did. I loved it. I loved #AhsokaTano and she quickly became one of my favorite women from the #gffa

I chose this scene from S7, as it carries over into 10.3.2020 - Anakin Skywalker.

I loved Anakin in the #swprequels but wanted more depth to his character. We always knew he was going to turn, but we didn’t see enough of the kind, noble character that #ObiWan told #LukeSkywalker about when he gave him his father’s #lightsaber in #ANH (so many hashtags, y’all.)

TCW gave us that character. Rewatching RotS after S7 broke my heart that much more 💔I wanted to capture one of his final moments as Anakin, reunited with his former #padawan here, in the moment he returns her sabers to her ❤
@heruniverse and @mattlanter thank you for bringing life to these fantastic characters.

Both pieces are on Strathmore 6x8 Mixed Media paper. I used Liquitex Ink! In Carbon Black w/water and brush. The background is @copic in B69 - Stratospheric Blue.

Most of my #STARtober pieces (including this one) will be listed for sale - please DM if interested in purchasing ❤

10.1.2020 - Empire Strikes Back

I recently re-watched ESB in theaters for the 40th anniversary and this scene felt so much more important to me during the viewing. I loved that it was mirrored in TROS to show Luke coming full circle. ��Yoda was sketched in pencil and then outlined lightly with #micronpens before being inked using Liquitex Ink! In Carbon Black. The piece was done on Strathmore 6x8” mixed media paper. White highlights are gel ink.��Most of my #STARtober pieces (including this one) will be listed for sale - please DM if interested in purchasing

Recreated the Leia and Han scene from ESB with everyone’s 2nd favorite sequel trilogy ship (Stormpilot will always be #1). I didn’t start out the sequel trilogy as a Reylo shipper, but the idea grew on me and the ending of TROS totally broke my heart. Anyway, tried out some new shading techniques for this and had a lot of fun with it. Enjoy!

Ben : Stop what?
Rey : Stop that! My hands are dirty.
Ben : My hands are dirty too.

07/04/2020
Our country is in chaos. But it's a great time to be an American

“The history books love to tell stories of the Minutemen, the elite band of Revolutionary War soldiers who were ready at a minute's notice to rush into battle. The Black Lives Matter protesters and others who recently took to the streets to demonstrate were not that different. They risked their lives, often on short notice via a text or social media alert, to demonstrate against racism in the middle of a pandemic.

Age made no difference. Many of those demonstrators were young -- some even too young to vote. They took rubber bullets to the face and swallowed tear gas. And then they came back the next day, like soldiers.”

https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/04/us/fourth-july-america-blake/index.html

It's easy to be cynical this Fourth of July. Racial protests have rocked every major US city, and Americans can't even agree if they should wear face masks during a pandemic. But what some see as chaos, others see as an explosion of patriotism.

My Story

I’ve been drawing since I figured out which way to hold a pencil. Art has been a tool when I can’t convey emotions through words, a hobby when my hands are bored and my mind full, and a doorway into a beautiful world.

I love to create images based on the things that I love and hope to one day branch into creating my own visual worlds. For now, though, I’ll be happy to draw whatever happens to inspire me and create unique portraits for anyone who wants to see themselves in my style.

I started this page with a focus on parenting, babywearing, breastfeeding, and all of the magic that comes with it. In the years since, I’ve branched out and found my own style and flow as an artist and, while happy to still create those images, they aren’t what I gravitate towards at the moment. My little ones love to sit with me and draw their favorite characters and write their own comics, so that’s where we are in this journey right now!

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my spiel. I hope that you see something here that makes you smile!
