Yeah, so I probably shouldn’t be doodling in pen during Photoshop class…

Chicken commission for a friend!

She was originally going to be a wyandotte, but I liked her plumage white. I tried to stick with that classic wyandotte “hostile pillow” look, though.

That’ll drive down local real estate prices for sure.

More cafe sketching, and unsuccessful experimentation with smudging markers that do not want to smudge.

On a crisp fall afternoon, nothing beats a quick jaunt through thresholds to hidden worlds or shadowy liminal spaces.


All October long, I’ll be posting monster drawings on my Tumblr page. Here we have Medusa from the Ray Harryhausen-produced Clash of the Titans. Man… that movie freaked me out so much when I was a kid. I couldn’t look at Medusa for fear of turning to stone. She just terrified me.

This is the coolest. I love the tiny Pegasus silhouette in the sky, love the colors, love the snakes.

Happy inktober everyone!

little inktober scribblies coming to you sporadically all this month and/or as long as I feel like it!

Tiny cafe drawing! That man definitely figured out he was in my picture - I need to work on my stealth sketching.

And framed! (By ‘framed’, I mean fitted into a wooden cheese box lined with washi tape.)
