Sketchbook: Nights at the Circus #1

I am currently reading 'Nights at the Circus' by Angela Carter.  I have just finished section one; in which Fevvers (a cockney trapeze artiste who was allegedly born with wings) recounts her life story thus far to an American journalist called Jack Walser (who was hoping to prove she's a phoney, but may have become obsessed with her instead).

I was inspired to draw Fevvers and her abnormally large proportions, and the picture was going quite well until I tipped mauve ink down it.  I finished it anyway, after all it's only a sketchbook page.
