Hulk Cuddle

Tuesday, November 27th, 2018

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.

HULK LIKE TIN MAN.

Teehee.

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.

Shiny Eevee

Shiny Eevee by Amy Crook, a drawing of a grumpy sleeping Eevee in shiny colors

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

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?

Playboy Genius

Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

chibi fan art of Tony Stark by Amy Crook

Playboy Genius by Amy Crook, 4.25″x5.5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

I doodled this in my sketchbook the other day and liked it so much I finished it up and scanned it. Tony Stark is, in his own words, a billionaire genius playboy philanthropist, not to mention Iron man. This little chibi reflects at least two of those qualities!

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

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

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!
