Downton Abbey





Yes, I fell down the Downton Abbey rabbit hole. An Edwardian costume drama rife with heartbreak, war, family intrigue, conniving servants, bucolic scenery and Maggie Smith? Sign me up.

I've never commented before but started following your blog a year ago because I love your illustations! You often brighten my day with your sketches. I've fallen down the Downton Abbey rabbit hole too & am loving it. Your illustrations are spot on.

Thanks so much for your kind comment on my Poirot illustration. I really enjoy your work, and was so thrilled about your Downton Abbey post. I LOVE the show so much!

I knew who these characters were right away! I would love to see a graphic novel of your illustrations for Downton Abbey! THAT would be fabulous!!

Love Downton Abbey, and love the "rabbit hole" description. I dove in to season 1 on Netflix and am pretty sure I watched the whole season in one day. Yikes.

Your Matthew is quite dashing. Love that hash-marked tweed.

Also, Lady Mary's eyebrows are a character unto themselves, and you've treated them thus in your drawing. Awesome.
