Smug Bond & Exasperated Q

Smug Bond & Exasperated Q, chibi emoji by Amy Crook

Smug Bond & Exasperated Q, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

Last month, I put out a limited number of spots for chibi emoji commissions on my tumblr, and this is the second pair! James Bond, notorious 007, is very smug about something. Something that’s got Q frowning and scolding him, so basically, business as usual.

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.

Last month, I put out a limited number of spots for chibi emoji commissions on my tumblr, and this is the first pair! Arthur from Inception is facepalming over something, about which Eames is inordinately proud.

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.

30 Day Marker Challenge, part 3

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

The amazing Sadynax gave herself a 30-day Marker Challenge last month, and I decided to do it for April to help get back in the swing of art after my surgery. Three weeks and counting I’ve managed some daily art, hooray!

I’m giving my wonderful Patreon supporters some bonuses at the $5+ sketch levels this month, so it’s a good time to become a patron!

Tea for Q

Friday, January 20th, 2017

Tea for Q, parody James Bond art by Amy Crook

Tea for Q, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

Q is working on his much-stickered, tape-repaired laptop and giving a little smile to Bond, who is bringing him tea in his favorite Scrabble mug. It comes with a bit of extra sweetness in the form of a kiss on Q’s mussed hair.

A perfect Valentine for the nerdy tea-lover in your life, or just to add a bit of love to your life.

Everything is Arthur and Eames

Everything is Arthur and Eames, Inception parody art by Amy Crook

Everything is Arthur and Eames, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

I admit it, I have been converted. Inception fandom is the best fandom. Everyone in it so far has been kind and supportive! And I can’t seem to keep from drawing Arthur and Eames being totally adorable.

Originally drawn for a fandom thing, this sweetness is also available as a Valentine, because it really had to be.

Advent 2016, week 4

Saturday, December 31st, 2016

2016 is almost over!

To celebrate the end of this terrible year, I drew one sketch every day. They’re in various media on cheap-but-archival 5.5″x8.5″ embossed white cards. Some of these will be available as cards, some of them will be in a special sale for my email list next month, and some of them are already spoken for.

I had the flu and then a cold for most of December, so pardon some of the weirdness. I’m mostly well now, except for a bit of a lingering cough. Wish me luck in not catching anything else for awhile!

Time Ends

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Time Ends, Doctor Who parody art by Amy Crook

Time Ends, 5″x7″ pen & ink, pencil, and Copic marker on paper

The second in my commission series I’m calling All the Doctors, Twelve is saying another famous line, “Time Ends.” He’s wearing his snazzy Sonic Sunglasses, one of his more casual outfits with the hoodie and t-shirt under the fancy coat, and plaid trousers that were not a thing I recommend drawing by hand.

And yet, somehow, I keep drawing dudes in plaid. Go figure.

You can get this Doctor at my Etsy shop, where he’d make a great card to give to someone who’s just waiting for 2016 to be over already.
