More commissions! More Inception! More chibis!
This wonderful person was happy to be led to my list of needed emojis for our Slack, and we chose the chinhands and spit take as ones for her commission. Especially of note are Eames’ purple trackies, and Arthur’s beautiful blush.
Want a commission of your own? Email me and I’ll get you in the queue!

The second of my Orphan Black commissions, Helena here is for a birthday card! She’s looking very cheerful and only a little like she might bite, really. Lots of tiny pattern on this one, the plaid on her outfit plus the tiny paisleys on her shirt were a challenge.
My commissions queue is opening up soon, so email me if you want to get on the wait list!

The Floating Gallery has pulled up stakes and drifted off into the sunset!
I hope you enjoyed March’s temporary exhibits, and will be back in April for more. This month’s pieces have all been sold or retired to make room for next month’s all new art. Join the email list to get an early pass into all the future Floating Galleries.
In the meantime, my Etsy shop is still open, and there will be comics and other, stranger posts here on the blog. You can also support me on Patreon if you want to make sketch requests, get downloads, or just feel good about yourself as a patron of the arts!

This is the first time in the Growth series that we’ve got actual growing things instead of mere seeds. The central core is a warm, inviting mix of earthy browns, and there are even green sprouts curling outward toward the universe, anchored by the rich red roots.
Have you put down roots, or are you still floating in the void, hoping to find something to nurture your growth?
Above, you can see the red-brown roots and green sprouts, as well as the earth-brown seeds and the rich mix of watercolor that make up our growing world. Below, the painting is in its frame, and already trying to outgrow it!

It’s a bit on the nose to call this typical example of my oeuvre “Me Three,” but sometimes the titles pick you.
The sky is a beautiful clear blue shading to the gold of sunrise, and the clouds float above with a mix of golden light and purple shadows. Trees full of character show just a touch of texture in the gleam of morning. A trio of long-necked birds make their way through the morning air.
Above, you can see the twisty trees, wispy clouds, and flappy birds. Below, the painting is tucked into a frame, just waiting to find its home with you.

A mysterious woman joins with the tide, dissolving into seafoam until all that’s left is the golden crown of flowers. Her long, dark hair makes a veil that matches the curving waves, while her pale face echoes the moon above, and her dress matches the whitecaps around her.
The scene is painted on a textured artists panel about 3/8″ thick, with a hanging-ready niche in the back if you don’t want to frame it.
One has to wonder, looking at her pink mouth amongst the midnight blue, whether she’s a ghost, a siren, or merely a woman scorned.
Above, you can see the mysterious figure in her golden crown of flowers up close. Below, the piece is all ready for hanging sans frame, so it’s just waiting on you to take it home.
