One of my lovely Patreon patrons has been on a bit of a Hockey binge lately, so she asked me to draw her a proper cartoon of Sid Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Google was convinced I wanted to see him with his shirt off, so we have a combination of no shirt and a bit of team-appropriate gear in the form of his numbered hoodie. Stay tuned for another of his teammates sometime soon!

State of the Kitties 2019

Posted on January 3rd, 2019

she smol. he chonky. photo of two kitties of varying size.

Belladonna and Podsworth are both still with me! She has lost a lot of weight because of her hyperthyroidism but is hanging on by sheer force of will (and meds). He has gained weight due to middle-aged spread, and also eating her diet. He’s about 2.5 times her weight now, and while it’s not super obvious at first glance, you can sure feel the difference picking them up. Oof.

Belladonna is 16 and a half now, and taking advantage of every single bit of spoiling that allows her. She’s got heating pads, cat stairs, wet food, broth, beef baby food, and she’s still an angry little waffle demanding I turn the faucet on for her to drink from. On the other hand, she sleeps on my chest sometimes and is smol and floof and I will miss her terribly when she finally shrinks to nothingness. She’s 30% tail and 70% grumpy, but still very pretty and lovable!

either a black cat or the void

Podzilla there is in my spot, the little jerkface. He’s hit 10 which makes him officially also an elderly cat, but aside from the chonkification he’s pretty much the same as ever. He loves three things in life, cheese, feet, and pets. He’s currently asleep on my feet, because I was fidgeting too much to keep petting him when he was trying to sleep on my tummy. Both of them have deep resentment of my laptop and smartphone and would like to put in an op ed to the NYT except they aren’t allowed to use the computer. Woe.

kitties do not like the holidays

Happy New Year from Thing One and Thing Two!

Santa says Ho Ho Ho but Bellaboo says No No No. For the record, the offending ribbon has been banished to someone’s holiday gift, and neither one of them was willing to wear it longer than the photo.

Artist’s Choice: Best of 2018

Posted on January 1st, 2019

Artist's Choice - Best of 2018 by Amy Crook

2019 is here!

Not gonna lie, 2018 wasn’t a great year for your artist, Dear Readers. But there were some good things to come out of it, like the art you see below. There were only six Floating Galleries with new art in them, and so I’ve chosen 2 from each to highlight.

Here’s hoping that 2019 brings us beautiful art, many moments of joy, and days filled with kindness.

Hulk Cuddle

HULK CUDDLE by Amy Crook, a pen and marker cartoon of the hulk giving Tony Stark a very enthusiastic hug

HULK CUDDLE, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

This image came about talking to my friends about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, like you do, and one of them was enamored of it enough to commission it! I’m especially fond of tony’s wide-eyed look of dismay and Hulk’s upside-down frown of pure joy.



My commissions queue is CLOSED right now and probably will be into next year, so if you were looking to get something, er, ever, you might want to get on the wait list.

Commissioner of Shiny Pokémon strikes again! This time we have a shiny Eevee sleeping like a winter fox, one eye open in the glare perfected by my grumpy cat. I seem to have a thing for grumpy sleeping Eeveelutions, but really, who can blame me?

Jolteon by Amy Crook, a drawing of the Jolteon Pokemon curled up like a cat, glaring

Jolteon, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

Belladonna grumpily posed for this addition to my Pokémon series, an Eeveelution looking spiky, grumpy, and generally adorable. Jolteon is an electric type, and while he’s showing his claws, the zap he could give you is probably the real threat. Unlike most of this commission series, this one’s not shiny, though I did make a shiny variation with the power of Photoshop.
