And so we continue the “you had to be there” week of FANbruary with this Inception/Grease mashup. Eames cleans up nicely for the Sandra Dee role, while Arthur greases down just as excellently. Look at the shine on that hair!

There is an explanation for this art, but it’s long and strange and really all you need to know is that it’s a commission for the writer of the single most-commented fic on a certain archive.
It’s also another entry for FANbruary, which is a lovely celebration of fandom.

Another Doctor for my Patreon patron, Ian! He asked for the War Doctor next, and man am I glad I own like 20 colors of brown Copic markers because I think I used all of them on this outfit.
Seriously, though, John Hurt did a wonderful job portraying Doctor Who in this weird and difficult role, and this little cartoon captures that sense of exhausted sadness surprisingly well for not having a nose.

In my first self-published novel, The Courtship of Julian St. Albans, the main character Alex whistles up some magic butterflies to impress the young man he’s courting. He also manages to acquire a flower fairy, though that comes much later. At no point would he actually put up with the coattails, though he is awfully fond of black with black and a side of black as his palette.
I drew this for Inktober in 2015, and colored it the other day as a warm-up to commissions. Because if I don’t do my own characters for FANbruary, who will?

Another commission! I’m clearing out my queue to make room for my wait list, lol, so if you’re thinking of getting something now’s the time to toss your hat in the ring!
This is Felix from Orphan Black, celebrating the winter holidays in a way only he can. We made a card with him saying, “Oi! Merry Christmas!” and “Oi! Happy Hanukkah!” His robe is nicely Solstice-y, too!

My lovely patron, who sometimes gets called a teacup-sized human, has made some tiny humans of their own! They asked to be immortalized in chibi form, and thus we have the cuplets. We went with a mix of new-school design and old-school bright comic colors for our Wonder Woman, and old school all the way for Spock’s cosplay.
Basically, they have the best parent and I have the best patrons.

Who would have thought that cheesy ’80s pop music would spawn further art? The Gang of Four song I Love a Man in a Uniform has always held this little gem that, on some tired days, feels like my life motto.
To have ambition is my ambition
This word art piece uses beautiful sparkling inks and has elaborate decorations in varying stages of doneness to represent the unfulfilled ambitions — from fully realized illumunation around the capital to the barely-sketched design beneath the final word, process becomes product.
Above, you can see the shiny embedded in pretty much all of the ink used in this piece. Below, you can see how it looks in a frame, a gorgeous example of artistic hopefulness.
