Smythe the dandelion and Maury the earthworm gossip every morning over a cup of tea.
Made in Rebelle with mostly watercolors and some oil pastels for the dirt.
A screenshot from The Weaver of Stories, my upcoming adventure-comedy visual novel about a freelance pumpkin carver tasked with saving the world from monsters. Art made in Rebelle 4. Game made with Naninovel for Unity.
Angry Hot Dog, based on the angry hot dog Gene was drawing over and over on an episode of Bob’s Burgers. (I don’t remember which one!) Here you can see Hot Dog angrily ranting while crossing the street with Ketchup, who’s heard this rant a million times and isÂ so over it.
Made in Rebelle 4. The foreground is watercolors and the background was made with oil pastels, I think on yucca paper, which is my favorite of the papers I’ve tried so far.
I made this back in January, and it’s still one of my favorites! I love how annoyed those snails are. And the underwater shadows. And how casually determined but still oblivious that fish is.
I’ve been doing a lot of drawing ever since I got a graphics tablet this last Christmas, and while I’ve been posting it over on Facebook and occasionally Instagram, I’ve fallen way behind on posting it on my site. I’ve lost track of what order I made these in, so I’ll start with this one, based on my favorite of the unicorn tapestries, The Unicorn Rests in a Garden:
I’ve also started a RedBubble shop with some of my designs. I don’t know why, but there’s just something really satisfying about seeing your work as a cut-out sticker.
A speckled Brontosaurus I drew the other day with the mouse in Rebelle 3.
I’ve been participating in Inktober this year, where basically the goal is to draw every day in October. These were all done on the computer, with a tablet, in Krita, which is free, open-source software for artists that I highly recommend! I’ve tried to draw in Photoshop before, and I kind of hate it, and I’m really terrible at coloring things in it. I mean, let’s be honest, coloring has never been one of my strong points,Â but I feel like that’s changing with Krita. Because it turns out coloring things is a lot easier when you have limitless colors and, like, a bazillion different tools to use them with. As opposed to, say, an old box of crayons or colored pencils. Not that I’m still using crayons or anything, and I do have a box of not-that-old Prismacolor pencils, but it’s the smallest box and I don’t know how to blend anything.
