Sing a Song of Winter

A short while back I did a Unicorn picture that may be one of our holiday cards this year and haveing decided that I wanted another design that would go with it as our second card design (I always do at least 2 card designs).

Proof of Insanity

This picture should make it clear just how insane I am, not only did I decide to stipple a near full figure, but I also thought stippleing 60 bubbles would be a good idea on top of it. "Bubbles", 9 x 12, Micron pen and White gel pen on tan paper. Original and prints available. Picture 68.

Betteer Late Than Never

This would have been done a week ago but the blue marker I was useing died on me and the store was OUT of it so I had to order it online and just got it today. I really like how this came out, the Unicorn is NOT based on a horse at all and is much more like I learned a Unicorn should look like back before the great Unicorn craze made every hourse with a horn a "Unicorn". The background is heavily inspired by the work of Mucha. "Unicorn in Winter", 9 x 12, Micron pen, white gel pens and Copic marker on grey paper. Original and prints available. Picture 66.

No Inktober

I love doing Inktober but this year since I have been working on things to go in my Imaginings book and they are all ink mostly, I figure I am close to keeping up with a drawing a day for a month. I think I have done 6 or 7 in the month of October and will do more, so no actually Inktober specific work this year.

Shadow Work

This took way longer than I expected it to but several factors contributed to that. It also developed and grew in a way I was not expecting but I really like the end results. There are 2 versions, I scanned it before I added the red so I would have  black and white and a tinted version. "Touched by Shadows", about 9 x 9, Micron pens, White gel pen and Acrylic wash on Tan paper. Original and prints available. Picture 44.

Thursday, July 30, 2020

Musing on Ttitle Page

I decided to do a portrait of my muse for the title page of the new book I am working on. Of course he gave me fits and I did a ton of work that is now nearly impossible to see.

Japaneque

Another Useless Picture

Friday, June 12, 2020

Don't Look

Old and Unfinished

I may have posted this before but I recently pulled this out and took another photo of it. This was started over 18 years ago maybe 20 or more. I love how what I have done looks, his face is so cute and I love the pose...but I have sketched background after background over the years and none of them work for me. One day, I hope I will figure out the right background for this picture and finally finish it. "Wild Child WIP", 16 x 20, Acrylic and watercolor colored pencil on Canson board.
