2016 is almost over!
To celebrate the end of this terrible year, I’m doing one sketch every day. They’re in various media on these 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.

The Floating Gallery has closed, but Inktober is very much still going! Here’s a recap of the first week-and-a-bit of 2016’s art. Some of these will be available as cards, some of them will be in a bookmark sale for my email list next month, and some of them are already spoken for. Quite a variety!

I think it’s fair to say this is the perfect art for a fan of my work!
There’s a little hint of everything, from the secret spirals in shining duochrome paint, to the tiny fluttering paintings that make up the rudder. There’s even a warm little teacup with the purple-haired pilot riding up front.
Which detail delights you the most?
Above, you can see the secret spirals that only show up in just the right light. Below, the airship is drifting along in a frame, just waiting to find a home on your wall.

This is the first of the end-of-gallery Airship series that really gelled in a beautiful, detailed way. The gorgeously patterned dragonfly wings work with the body of the ship. The windows on the body imply a fascinating sense of scale. The ornamentation hovers somewhere between the whimsy of steampunk and the sleekness of retro-futurism, with the flower-petal propeller adding the final touch of whimsy.
This painting is perfect for sparking the imagination, sending your mind on short flights of fancy to keep your day floating along peacefully.
Above, you can see a detail of the painted pattern, evoking without copying a firefly’s delicate wings. Below, the art is sitting in a frame, just waiting to fly off to its new home.
