30 Day Marker Challenge, part 2

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

The amazing Sadynax gave herself a 30-day Marker Challenge last month, and I decided to do it for April to help get back in the swing of art after my surgery.

I’m giving my wonderful Patreon supporters some bonuses at the $5+ sketch levels this month, so it’s a good time to become a patron!

Tea for Q

Friday, January 20th, 2017

Tea for Q, parody James Bond art by Amy Crook

Tea for Q, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

Q is working on his much-stickered, tape-repaired laptop and giving a little smile to Bond, who is bringing him tea in his favorite Scrabble mug. It comes with a bit of extra sweetness in the form of a kiss on Q’s mussed hair.

A perfect Valentine for the nerdy tea-lover in your life, or just to add a bit of love to your life.

London Fog

Friday, October 28th, 2016

London Fog, James Bond parody art by Amy Crook

London Fog, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper,
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!

MI6 Tinies: J is for James

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015

MI6 Tinies: J is for James by Amy Crook

MI6 Tinies: J is for James by Amy Crook

As promised, here’s the second of my MI6 Tinies. James is falling into the same trap as “Z is for Zillah,” though he’s at least using proper martini glasses instead of a teapot for his gin. Gorey’s ubiquitous black doll also makes a guest appearance, spreading its ill omen along with the display of finer spirits.

These two are a commission, but you can acquire them printed on a lovely 2-card set at my Etsy shop.

Q is for Quartermaster

Monday, July 27th, 2015

MI6 Tinies: Q is for Quartermaster by Amy Crook

MI6 Tinies: Q is for Quartermaster by Amy Crook

The wonderful patron who commissioned most of my Baker Street Tinies knitted me the most amazing shawl, and one of the things she requested in trade for it was a pair of MI6 Tinies.

This time I’ve crossed the world of James Bond over with Edward Gorey’s Gashlycrumb Tinies. The new Q from Skyfall appears in a parody of “Y is for Yorick” except instead of a column of stone it’s a tall tower of servers teetering and about to fall on his head.

Don’t worry, 007 will get his on Wednesday! These two are a commission, but you can acquire them printed on a lovely 2-card set at my Etsy shop.
