Art Post – Angry Hot Dog


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 is 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.

The Unicorn Rests in a Garden

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.

Inktober – #1 – 8


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, 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.
