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.

Autumn Leaves

Autumn Leaves by Amy Crook

Autumn Leaves, 7″x5″ brush and ink on paper

Happy Thanksgiving* from America!

Despite everything about the country turning into a slow-burning trash fire, I’m still really grateful for a lot of things in life. My patrons who support me, my friends who put up with me, my family who loves me, and even my cats.

I asked my Patreon patrons to request two sketches last month to help fill out my Inktober calendar, and this was Kim’s second request. I used four different J. Herbin inks, including the lovely gold-accented Rouge Hematite, and did a loose, tumbling clutter of fallen leaves, blown together by an unseen wind. I can just hear the crunch-crunch of them underfoot.

You can get this lovely image on a card in my Etsy shop, and celebrate your own love of the changing seasons.

(On the) Twelfth Doctor of Christmas, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

The Twelfth Doctor is all done up in his velvety holiday finery, floofy hair and a cup of something warmly seasonal, but he’s just got one question — is there something on his head?

Sherlock’s Perfect Christmas

Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

Sherlock's Perfect Christmas, parody art by Amy Crook

Sherlock’s Perfect Christmas, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

This year for Sherlock’s annual holiday card, I decided to give him a little bit of all of his favorite things — from Victorian wallpaper to modern murder, there’s a perfect Sherlock Christmas in the making.

I’m particularly fond of the gingerdead man — what’s your favorite part?
