Maryanneleslie's Profile Picture
Mary-Anne Leslie
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
I'm from Vancouver Canada originally and now reside in Arizona. After taking Graphic Design and Illustration in college I decided I would also like to study classical animation which is now basically obsolete but did it ever hone my drawing skills! After experimenting with many mediums and techniques I fell in love with ballpoint pen when I needed a fast and inexpensive method for a job I was not making any money on. I've illustrated a couple of books for people who self published, and have sold several paintings and done murals in between for the cash. As you can probably tell, my favorite subjects to draw are anything Romantic, and I'm particularly fond of costume.


Everybody shut up. Shut up, Lutz.
I'm a desperate woman and am selling my children. My 18 x 24" watercolor babies! It hurts. But money will make it all better. And they deserve a better home, hung up on someone's wall. Instead of hoarded in my portfolio in the corner. They are here on Etsy 
  • Mood: Anguish
  • Watching: Rick & Morty
  • Drinking: Barefoot Chardonnay
I'm selling everything! Help me to eat!

Alas, poor Yo-rick by Maryanneleslie
Alas, poor Yo-rick
As two rustic fellows dig a grave in Shakespeare's "Hamlet" they unearth the skull of Yorick. Hamlet then waxes philosophical on the topic of MORTalitY. Of course in this case, it's "Yo-Rick's" own skull, and he contemplates it in a typical stoic fashion.
I was inspired by my favorite episode of R&M, and my favorite quote from it which has practically become my personal mantra. (Thank you Dan Harmon) I wanted to pay tribute to it. And of course they're in quasi-Victorian garb, because I'm sick with it. Alternative timelines son! In this one maybe we decided we'd achieved the height of style in La Belle Epoque and never looked back.
Ballpoint pen and markers, on paper.
The Noxfae by Maryanneleslie
The Noxfae
The legend of the Nöxfae, who revealed themselves to me recently so I might share their story with you. One of them even told me this poem! I think we should accept their poetic license :)
While I'm here I'd like to say hi and thank you to the new watchers! Every artist needs an audience, often we need partly to compensate for the lack of a social life. My drawings are the sincerest expressions of my heart and I cant express how much it means to me when it makes other people happy too.
