Do you enjoy my occasional illustrated recipes? Well, then, I have a project coming up that you’re going to love.

Sekrit Patron and I are doing a very slow illustrated cookbook of our own recipes, and this is the very first page.* Next week, a recipe for Pot Roast is coming down the pike, complete with watercolor noms and a bonus cat.

*it’s also a sequel to this art

Geronimo

Geronimo, Doctor Who parody art by Amy Crook

Geronimo! 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

Finally, I’ve finished the third of my commission series I’m calling All the Doctors. My patron’s been very patient with the pace on these!

The eleventh Doctor has belatedly* arrived in his finery, all decked out with his tweed coat and watch chain and the whole later seasons getup. He’s got a different waistcoat, shirt, and tie on than in the promo photos, which I referenced from stills out of the show. I particularly like the polka dots on the bowtie — what’s your favorite detail?

*but not 11 years late

Time Ends

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

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.

Autumn Leaves

Autumn Leaves by Amy Crook

Autumn Leaves, 7″x5″ brush and ink on paper

Happy Thanksgiving* from America!

Despite everything about the country turning into a slow-burning trash fire, I’m still really grateful for a lot of things in life. My patrons who support me, my friends who put up with me, my family who loves me, and even my cats.

I asked my Patreon patrons to request two sketches last month to help fill out my Inktober calendar, and this was Kim’s second request. I used four different J. Herbin inks, including the lovely gold-accented Rouge Hematite, and did a loose, tumbling clutter of fallen leaves, blown together by an unseen wind. I can just hear the crunch-crunch of them underfoot.

You can get this lovely image on a card in my Etsy shop, and celebrate your own love of the changing seasons.

London Fog

London Fog, James Bond parody art by Amy Crook

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!
