Have you been Incepted yet?
Eames has paused his mad rush to the center of the maze on the 3rd level of the dream to make a snow angel, because he can. And there’s murderous, lovely Mal, in her pretty dress from the first dream, hiding something a bit pointy behind her back. Watch out for that one!

I have fallen into Limbo, aka Inception fandom, and I have no regrets. Here we have Saito in his delicious tux from the first dream, and Arthur in his beautiful blue suit from the famous 0G hallway fight (pose inspired by Powerpuff Girls, of course). These were a birthday commission for a friend of a friend, and I’m very happy to have been able to not only give a gift to her, but to the fandom, for secret reasons.

Tumblr is celebrating the 6th anniversary of Inception, and they held an all-day chat dedicated to getting people to finish their works in progress. The lovely person running it asked me to design some stickers for those who participated, so I made Arthur for anyone who came to write at all, and Eames for those who finished & posted something.
I didn’t have a ton of time, and these stickers are actually only 1.5″ high, so I went for a quick, colorful chibi design to give us the essence of these two lovely characters without getting all fussy about the details.

Tan, blonde Bond and pale, curly-haired Q are celebrating their love with puns, the little cutie pies. This simple, bold chibi style brings maximum adorableness to this pair!

For Christmas Eve, also known as Zombie Yule Eve by certain people (you know who you are), I give you the very last bonus zombie from my Cthulhu Coloring Book. Starting next week, you’ll be spammed with images from my new coloring book, instead!
This style is called “chibi” or “super deformed” Japanese manga and anime artists — the giant head and body that’s 1-2 heads high, that is, not the crazy-eyed zombie part. It’s one of the styles I offer when Cartoonifying people, so I decided to do a zombie example, because really, who hasn’t wanted to be a cartoon zombie?
I’ve had a lot of fun coloring my various zombies, too. She’s done in a very soft blue with shading in grey, where the severed head she’s keeping for a snack later is done in a pale pale flesh tone with shadows in two shades of blue. Her lips are a nice blue, as well, and her sharp, sharp teeth have just a hint of blood on them.

The latest of my cartoons is the awesome Catherine Caine! She asked for a chibi, which I haven’t gotten to do many of, and I had a lot of fun drawing her irresistible grin while she gave the world a big giant hug. I find this wonderfully appropriate, since Catherine’s enthusiasm for everyone and everything is unassailable by anything but rain.
She’s an Aussie, so instead of a cartoon North America as is usual around these parts, I got to draw a cartoon Southern Hemisphere, which was an interesting challenge since I’m less familiar with the necessary features of the geography there. One of my deep dark secrets is that I’m terrible with the whole social studies realm — geography, history, the works.
Catherine’s red corduroy trousers were striped with one of my awesome refillable Pilot fountain pens from Japan, which is my new favorite place to get art supplies. I almost forgot her awesome spiky ear plugs, since they were hidden in her hair in the photo I’d chosen for drawing her face, but she reminded me.
I love the bright, primary look of this piece, simplified and full of every bit of cheer that Catherine herself showers us with on a regular basis.
Stay Awesome, Catherine!
