The second of Disco’s commissions, and I even got to make Hermione black, which is awesome.
The flowers in both crown and bouquet are flax blossoms, lavender, and azaleas, chosen for their meaning and also the pink-blue-purple color scheme. The ladies are sporting House-themed robes, and are generally looking pretty adorable together.
These are drawn as close to a square aspect ratio as possible, so that they work as emoji on Slack. Their adorable 2-head-high chibi style conveys a lot of personality in a tiny space.

More commissions! Yes, my queue continues to be full, and yes, it’s awesome.
One of my wonderful online friends wanted a portrait of her sparkly nerd lesbian self with her fancy new mermaid hair and cute yellow short-shorts, front and back to make the most awesome silly chibi thing yet – pillows! Plush Disco for all!
And of course we made them into Slack emoji, since that’s where we primarily hang out, and what is chat without a disco-dancing Disco?

The Floating Gallery has pulled up stakes and drifted off into the sunset!
I hope you enjoyed November’s temporary exhibits, and will be back in December 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!

One person who saw this said, “This looks like my soul before coffee.”
Sometimes you’ve got darkness swirling inside with the golden good bits, and you just need to send those little pieces of yourself out into the world to try to find more lightness.
This Growth painting is for everyone who has a hard time with wanting to remain invisible, even when they also want to reach out and connect.
Above, you can see the subtle gradations of color and shadow, the play of light in the golden-flecked center. Below, this piece is contained in a frame, trying to outgrow the confines of its page.

A ghostly apparition, white fog, and a leaf-crowned tree.
A bright pop of color slowly embraced by the fog, warm red-brown bark supporting the green and gold foliage of early fall. A cool grey figure that might be a spirit or might just be hidden by the mist.
What stories can you write for this image?
This is the perfect painting for someone with a head full of fairy tales who just needs a starting point to get their fingers moving.
Above, you can see the way the tree fades into the fog, and the tiny bit of mysterious shimmer hiding in the red-brown bark. Below, the piece floats in a frame, full of subtle detail the scanner can’t capture.
