MI6 Cheerleaders

MI6 Cheerleaders, James Bond chibi parody art by Amy Crook

MI6 Cheerleaders, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

I sold two more commission spots for cute chibis to use on Slack as emoji, and this is the second. This patron wanted to switch up the fandoms and have Bond and Q as cheerleaders, for cheering on their fellow artists, writers, and favorite humans.

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.

Wolf Whistle

I sold two more commission spots for cute chibis to use on Slack as emoji, and this is the first! The patron wanted a blushing, embarrassed Arthur and a wolf-whistling Eames to go with him. We’ve found both very useful in everyday conversation, which probably tells you a lot about our ridiculous chats.

Five for Silver 2

Five for Silver 2, a Counting Crows painting by Amy Crook

Five for Silver 2, 6″x6″ Primatek watercolor on Fluid watercolor paper

Part five of the eerily monochrome Counting Crows series, we’ve moved along in the rhyme to a whole roost of crows and a bit of silver.

Our ghostly figure this time has a distinctly skeletal appearance, and the crows are all arrayed above her in a perfect murder. The lightning-split tree reaches up through the mist toward what little light has filtered down on this foggy day.

It’s fascinating how fog can reduce the entire world to just you and things you can barely see, isn’t it?

Above, you can see the titular crows arrayed above the faded figure in all her eerie glory. Below, this painting roosts in a frame, waiting to fly to its new home.

May Patreon Sketches

May 2017 Patreon patron sketches by Amy Crook

May 2017 Patreon patron sketches by Amy Crook

June is just around the corner and now’s a great time to become my patron on Patreon! Here’s last month’s sketches, all of which turned out to be bookmarks for various reasons.

Roxanne asked for “Winter Soldier” and I gave her a chibi cutie. Kim wanted “mist” so I experimented with my watercolors for this beautiful, mysterious tower. Eric asked for my cat Pod as Morgana from Persona, with a special nod to his bagel-thieving ways. And finally, Jeff asked for “giving in to temptation” and has been enjoying the new Twin Peaks, so he got the inevitable donut cartoon.

What would you like to see me draw?

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.

Arthur Facepalm & Smug Eames, 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 first pair! Arthur from Inception is facepalming over something, about which Eames is inordinately proud.

Queen of Swords

Queen of Swords, chibi tarot art by Amy Crook

Queen of Swords, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

This bodaciously majestic Queen of Swords is a delightful take on the tarot card, with one hand raised up to greet her subjects and her sword held ready in the other.

She’s got little blue swords on her sleeves, and the green brocade of her underskirt is covered in arrows letting you know just where to kneel. At her feet. Where you belong. Everything about her expression tells you she’s completely confident in her ability to make you do what she says.

Truly royal.

Above – look at that quirky, regal smile! Bow to that quirky, regal smile. Below, she’s majestically framed, just as she should be.
