ATC Narwhalakittycorn!

^ ATC (Artist Trading Card) Narwhalakittycorn. Prismacolor markers (and one Copic) and Prismacolor colored pencils on smooth bristol.

This is probably my mom's favorite of all the creatures I've created.

Paranoid t-shirt design!

Recent t-shirt design for my own use. It's based off of an older yin-yang motif I created in 2006 (at top).

Full size illustration is 9" x 12" vellum bristol. Inked with #1 and #8 round brushes and Speedball Super Pigmented Acrylic Ink.

Improvement from last year: BRAINSICK scene!

^ My cats often looked like dogs without reference; thus Twitch's atrocious anatomy. Big Head's isn't all that much better.

^ That's more like it! I practiced drawing a lot of cats (to make studies of Lily) for Senior Studio II; their anatomy as differentiated from dogs' has stuck in my head.

Twitch is a creepy bastard, and a cannibal to boot.

Finch is the saddest pony.

^ I have no shame. My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is awesome.

So I tortured my poor Finch and turned him into a pony. The Saddest Pony.

He hails from Brain Drain 6, which is subtitled Dibujos Pocos ("Little Drawings").
