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.

In my first self-published novel, The Courtship of Julian St. Albans, the main character Alex whistles up some magic butterflies to impress the young man he’s courting. He also manages to acquire a flower fairy, though that comes much later. At no point would he actually put up with the coattails, though he is awfully fond of black with black and a side of black as his palette.
I drew this for Inktober in 2015, and colored it the other day as a warm-up to commissions. Because if I don’t do my own characters for FANbruary, who will?

This moody series of Counting Crows paintings has its seventh addition!
The tree here has clearly been through quite a bit of storm-tossing or other rough handling, with broken branches and even the top pointing jaggedly to the sky while it spreads itself as well as it can with what remains. A murder of crows alights, and a ghostly figure awaits in the fog.
Where would you show this seventh secret?
Above, you can see a couple of the crows, a fraction of the full murder. Below, they’re in a frame like looking through a window into another, spookier reality.

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!

My lovely patron, who sometimes gets called a teacup-sized human, has made some tiny humans of their own! They asked to be immortalized in chibi form, and thus we have the cuplets. We went with a mix of new-school design and old-school bright comic colors for our Wonder Woman, and old school all the way for Spock’s cosplay.
Basically, they have the best parent and I have the best patrons.

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?
