More commissions! Yes, my queue continues to be full, and yes, it’s awesome.
One of my wonderful online friends wanted a portrait of her sparkly nerd lesbian self with her fancy new mermaid hair and cute yellow short-shorts, front and back to make the most awesome silly chibi thing yet – pillows! Plush Disco for all!
And of course we made them into Slack emoji, since that’s where we primarily hang out, and what is chat without a disco-dancing Disco?
These are drawn as close to a square aspect ratio as possible, so that they work as emoji on Slack (and pillows!). Their adorable 2-head-high chibi style conveys a lot of personality in a tiny space.

One person who saw this said, “This looks like my soul before coffee.”
Sometimes you’ve got darkness swirling inside with the golden good bits, and you just need to send those little pieces of yourself out into the world to try to find more lightness.
This Growth painting is for everyone who has a hard time with wanting to remain invisible, even when they also want to reach out and connect.
Above, you can see the subtle gradations of color and shadow, the play of light in the golden-flecked center. Below, this piece is contained in a frame, trying to outgrow the confines of its page.

A dormant tree twisting up through the fog. A single leaf floating down on the swirling currents, the final breath of the old year. Winter is crisp in the air, breathing down your neck, hiding in the muffling mist.
The season of hot cocoa, warm sweaters, cloudy skies, and chilly nights is upon us, and I’m thrilled! I know other people love the spring and summer, but I’m definitely one for autumn and winter. This painting celebrates that quiet time where one season turns into the other, and the last of the color fades from the world for awhile.
Above, you can see a close-up of the swirling fog and the single red-brown leaf drifting down through it. Below, the painting is framed and sitting in my writing desk, waiting to inspire some introspective spookiness.
