Happy Halloween!

I can’t believe it’s already NaNoWriMo time. Here’s the final eclectic mix of commissions, Patron sketches, and spoopiness — next month I’ll be locked in a closet writing solarpunk, haha.

Inktober 2017, day 1-9

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

October is here, and with it comes cool winds, crunchy leaves, and ink art! There is an official prompt list, which I followed for exactly one day, oops. Instead, I’m concentrating on drawing things that make me happy this time around, with a side of clearing out my daunting commissions queue, so expect a hodgepodge of whatever mood strikes me throughout the month.

Devil and Ghost

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

Devil and Ghost, Inception parody art by Amy Crook

Devil and Ghost, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

Is this where I just admit I have sold a LOT of these chibi commissions lately? But they’re just so fun, I have no regrets.

color test ghostThese are for Halloween, of course! Arthur and Eames from Inception coming back again as the Devil and a ghost. Arthur is smarming it up in his red velvet suit, straightening his cuffs as he leans nonchalantly in wait. Eames is looking extra spiffy floating along in his vintage windowpane check.

And of course on the right I have the little sketch ghost I drew just to test Eames’ colors before the real thing. Boo!

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.

Halloween Pathways

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

Halloween Pathways, abstract art by Amy Crook

Halloween Pathways, 7″x5″ watercolor on Arches Cover black paper

Deep charcoal supports and subdues the bright Halloween orange in this latest Pathways painting.

The image suggests bold autumn trees, lit by the last orange rays of sunlight slanting towards them. Or is it a bright potion bubbling over the sides of an iron cauldron? Perhaps you see the stripes on some deadly orange monster instead.

The simple-seeming monochrome hides a depth of color and detail that will give you hours of peaceful contemplation while you sit and sip cider and think of Halloweens to come.

Above, you can see the the way the charcoal blackness of the paper draws the orange into itself, lending a base of deep gloom to the holiday brightness of it. Below, the painting is tucked into a frame, just waiting to haunt your home.

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!
