Oh, Brilliant!

Friday, March 23rd, 2018

parody cartoon of the 13th Doctor next to the TARDIS saying, Oh Brilliant!

Oh, Brilliant! 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

The 13th Doctor has been revealed and I agree with her assessment – Brilliant! She’s got a quirky aesthetic that calls back to previous Doctors while being thoroughly modern, a great smile, and of course her very own TARDIS. I can’t wait to see what becomes of her!

Etsy is having a big sale through March 29, and I’m in on it! Get 15% off the whole shop, no code needed — including this image, which would make a brilliant birthday card if I do say so myself!

Cheerful Helena

Helena from Orphan Black, looking cheerful in a comic style

Cheerful Helena, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

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!

Shiny Umbreon

Shiny Umbreon, Pokemon fan art by Amy Crook

Shiny Umbreon, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

Shiny Umbreon is, I have to admit, a favorite of mine. This catdog Pokemon is one of a bunch of related things that evolve from Eevee, and basically they’re all great but the goth one is the best, the end.

If you’d like to get in the queue for a commission of your own, send me an email! The wait list is the only way to get one right now, for what I hope are obvious reasons after two weeks of commission posts.

No More

No More, Doctor Who parody fan art by Amy Crook

No More, 7″x5″ pen and ink and Copic marker on paper

Another Doctor for my Patreon patron, Ian! He asked for the War Doctor next, and man am I glad I own like 20 colors of brown Copic markers because I think I used all of them on this outfit.

Seriously, though, John Hurt did a wonderful job portraying Doctor Who in this weird and difficult role, and this little cartoon captures that sense of exhausted sadness surprisingly well for not having a nose.

Oi! Happy Holidays!

Oi! Happy Holidays! an Orphan Black parody comic by Amy Crook

Oi! Happy Holidays! 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

Another commission! I’m clearing out my queue to make room for my wait list, lol, so if you’re thinking of getting something now’s the time to toss your hat in the ring!

This is Felix from Orphan Black, celebrating the winter holidays in a way only he can. We made a card with him saying, “Oi! Merry Christmas!” and “Oi! Happy Hanukkah!” His robe is nicely Solstice-y, too!

Santa Cat

Happy Holidays!

Santa Cat knows exactly what to do during the busy holiday season — sleep.

Rendered in gold-infused grey and red ink, and a softer grey, it takes just a few lines to suggest the shape of a sleeping cat that’s gotten into the Christmas decorations.

This would make a gorgeous holiday decoration, full of whimsy and peace, to bring out year after year.

Above, you can see where there’s a teeny tiny bit of sparkle hiding in the ink. Below, you can enjoy the kitty napping away in its frame, pretending not to acknowledge the pun in the title. Ahem.

Hermione and Luna

Hermione and Luna chibi parody art by Amy Crook

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

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.
