I Am Not Here to Please You by Amy Crook for The Doubleclicks video

I Am Not Here to Please You, 12″x9″ pen & ink, Copic marker, and watercolor on Strathmore bristol for The Doubleclicks video “Women Know Math”

The Doubleclicks got 50 women and non-binary artists to illustrate their amazing video for Women Know Math, and I got to be part of it! I am absolutely in love with this song, the video, and everything it has to say.

Although they licensed the art for this specific use, the original is up for grabs in all its cat-filled glory. A rare self-portrait by the artist, with special guest appearances by Podsworth and Belladonna, this drawing bursts out of is boundaries with glorious movement and joy.

Above, there is possibly the most accurate drawing I’ve ever made of Belladonna, and some pj pants I only wish I owned. Below, you can see this drawing framed, including the very faint pencil reminder up in the top portion with the text I was meant to using.

Time Ends

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.

London Fog, James Bond parody art by Amy Crook

London Fog, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper,
James Bond parody art by Amy Crook

A London Fog is an Earl Grey tea latte with a bit of vanilla syrup, creamy and sweet and fragrant and oh so good on an autumn day. Q’s assistant brought him this one, and he’s got a matching tea-patterned sweater to go with it, because tea is love.

You can get this silly ode to tea as a card in my Etsy shop, or support me on Patreon and request art like this for your very own!

Brave Heart

Brave Heart, parody Doctor Who art by Amy Crook

Brave Heart, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic Marker on paper, parody Doctor Who art by Amy Crook

This is the first in a series of all 13 Doctors I’ll be doing for a Patreon patron! The Fifth Doctor is his favorite, and so I had to go all out with the celery and stripey trousers. So stripey.

You can get this cheerful portrait on a card in my Etsy shop, since the original is on its way to Australia!

Goldilocks

Goldilocks, watercolor by Amy Crook

Goldilocks, 8″x10″ watercolor on watercolor paper

The collector that bought Mercy House thought it had a Three Bears feel to it, and asked for a Goldilocks commission to go with it. It has the same feeling of abstract greenery, but shot through this time with light instead of darkness, the gold of the girl’s hair bouncing around her in sunlight among the leaves as she strolls through the forest. Everything has a soft, surreal feeling to it, suitable to this classic fairy tale.

Tea: Molly Hooper

Tea: Molly Hooper, Sherlock parody art by Amy Crook

Tea: Molly Hooper, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

One of my favourite patrons commissioned me to draw a series of 4 little comic portraits of her favourite characters with their favourite teas. Favourites all around!

This last piece in the Tea Series features the adorkable Molly Hooper, the pathologist from whose morgue Sherlock keeps borrowing all manner of unpleasant items. She’s got a soothing cup of Darjeeling, probably to help her nerves after one of Sherlock’s visits.

Tea: Lestrade, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

One of my favourite patrons commissioned me to draw a series of 4 little comic portraits of her favourite characters with their favourite teas. Favourites all around!

This third piece in the Tea Series features DI Lestrade from the BBC Sherlock series. The put-upon detective inspector needs a strong, bracing cup of Assam to help him keep up with Sherlock’s antics.
