Eye Candy

Just a little picture + bad pun for Halloween!

This is what happens when monsters run out of candy and have to find something else to give. ^_^

Watercolor, white ink.

All Hail the Bad Pun!

This was done pretty much for the sake of traumatizing people.

Watercolor, and a bit of white ink.

Woohoo, Carpal Tunnel!

Been busy with some interviews and freelance projects, but I'm itching to be more busy! Gotta keep working at getting my portfolio out there...

I plan on resuming Unholy in the very, very near future. I'm just waiting for my chance to get off this seven-year-old computer that can't quite handle the files. Until then, I am holding off my urge to work on it by doing some Unholy-themed illustration. I had lots of fun with this one; it was somehow very therapeutic.

And some detail shots!

You can purchase this, and two dozen or so other pieces, as prints!

Another... watercolor?

Achilles and Patroclus

This piece was inspired by Book 16 of the Iliad, where Achilles sends Patroclus out to battle in his place, then prays to Zeus for his safe return. This of course doesn't happen. Patroclus is wounded first by a spear between the shoulder blades, then another from Hector, straight through his gut and out the back.

Flying free of his limbs
his soul went winging down to the House of Death,
wailing his fate, leaving his manhood far behind,
his youth and supple strength. But glorious Hector
taunted Patroclus' body, dead as he was, "Why, Patroclus--
why prophesy my doom, my sudden death? Who knows?--
Achilles the son of sleek-haired Thetis may outrace me--
struck by
my spear first -- and gasp away his life!"

(Robert Fagles translation)

Copic multiliner, white ink, watercolor.

Illustrator Junks

Heh... I wanted to prove that I'm not lying when I say I work in multiple styles.

I'm sure everyone knows that old joke... "What's worse than finding a worm in your apple?"

And here's a random dancing ferret.

I'm also currently working on another illustrator piece (a paper doll thing), as well as two pen and ink pieces. Will post again soon!

Trying something a little different...

Here are Julius and Mason. Because we all know that overweight 3-year-old twins with pointy heads and mustaches are the ultimate in marketable.

I think I'm gonna redo the text. It's icky right now. But anyway, here's a little sketch of Julius running.

Sadly, I think we might be seeing more of these two guys in the future...

Random "Unholy" Sketches

Just some random drawings, because I enjoy drawing fake technology and illustrating how random pieces of clothing work.

The text at the bottom says: "Pogo is addicted to male potency pills, thus this functional belt serves as coverage." Thank God!

And here are the little earpieces they all wear to communicate with one another. And Pogo's earring, for some odd reason...

Right now, I'm also working on some sketches that will later be used for a sculpture. The character is a wizard from another story I've been working on. Sketches of her to come soon.
