I wasn’t feeling all that well last week, so this was a quiet week for posting art. Wednesday we met a whole bunch of monsters and Friday we saw some of their very specific brethren. Then Saturday we went birdwatching and I showed you a heron.
Today there’s a little doodle from someone’s Cthulhu Coloring Book. Will that be one tentacle or two?

I’ve been working on this in amongst the Monster paintings, starting with a rather banal watercolor layer and adding in bold scribbles, shimmery iridescent highlights and even some pencil shading. I’ve grown fond of the odd perspective, of peering at the herons through the grasses, and catching a glimpse of both halves of this couple.
Birdwatching, 6″x4″ mixed media on paper, $199 with free shipping.
Above, you can see a bit of the golden wash at the very edge of the sky, and a sheen off several bits of iridescent paint in several colors, from the soft gold along the beak to the blue in the feathers and silvery clouds. Below, you can see the piece in a frame, making it seem more than ever like a peek into some hidden natural wonder.

Monday I showed off my lovely Heron, and Tuesday there were not only tentacles but classic Holmes and Watson. Wednesday I talked about my teeth and the pain both physical and financial I’m dealing with. Thursday the Motherfucking Bunny dared you to make me an offer I couldn’t refuse, and Friday Spock urged you all to live long and prosper. Finally, Saturday we saw a wee tiny sketch of Bilbo and Smaug on a bookmark.
For today here’s a little cheer-up sketch I sent a friend who’s having a really shitty year, which has hopefully arrived in her mail by now.

A belated round-up on a sleepy Sunday! Back on Monday, Spock and Sherlock were unimpressed with your opinions on their similarities. Tuesday there were shiny tentacles, and Wednesday I talked about my toothache and my new commissions posts. Thursday John got a truly ugly sweater and Sherlock sneered. Friday Eihort shimmered evilly on the page, and Saturday it was Lestrade’s turn as a stick figure cartoon.
Below, you can see a nose-less, rune-bedecked sketch of Bob the Skull from the Dresden Files series. He’s all carved up in the tv show, but I don’t think he’s got the runes in the books, but it was fun to fake them up anyway.

Another week, another round-up! Monday we visited Thorin and Bilbo and were reminded that no one fights like Thorin, douses lights… Or maybe I just gave you all an earworm. Tuesday was Red 3, with all its complex and interesting interplays of three different shades of red and the soft black paper as well. Wednesday we visited the color yellow in many of the pieces from my previous work. Thursday‘s otterly adorkable art is now a print, by request. Friday the Devil made us do it, and on Saturday there was more Brothers Holmes with two color bonus comics.
And of course since it’s Sunday there’s a sketch, which was a wee study I did for Tuesday’s art. Heeere fishy fishy fishy…

It’s Sunday once again! If you missed some of this week’s posts, on Monday I had a ghostly swirly moon, on Tuesday our tentacles were very sad and apologetic, and on Wednesday we looked at the whole alphabet all together. Thursday revisited the idea of heraldry, Friday revisited Instagram, and on Saturday the Ninth Doctor visited us. It was a week chock-full of new cards for my Etsy shop, and new art for you to enjoy, whee.
And, of course, there’s a little sketch for you today. I was playing with shading with my new Neutral Grey Copic markers, which give me another choice from the warm and cool greys I’ve been using.

Monday we visited tiny Tolkein fandom with Storm, while Tuesday the tentacles got all steampunk with the golden Tentacle Idol. Wordless Wednesday revisited crows, and on Thursday I finally finished my alphabet with Z is for Zoomorphic. Then, Friday we saw the third Filigree Moon painting, and Saturday I expressed my feelings about pollen in cartoon form.
For Sunday’s sketch, I have another little doodle from someone’s Cthulhu Coloring Book, a mysterious crystal with eyes staring out from its facets. Sorry about the SAN loss.
Tomorrow begins Bookmark Week! My newsletter list got a little preview so a couple of them are already sold, but there’s still a bunch left for you to covet.
