Advent 2016, week 3

Monday, December 26th, 2016

2016 is almost over!

To celebrate the end of this terrible year, I’m doing one sketch every day. They’re in various media on these cheap-but-archival 5.5″x8.5″ embossed white cards. Some of these will be available as cards, some of them will be in a special sale for my email list next month, and some of them are already spoken for.

I’ve had the flu and then a cold for most of December, so pardon some of the bizarreness going on here. I am almost not sick at this point, but still have a bit of lingering bleh. BLEH.

Sherlock’s Perfect Christmas

Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

Sherlock's Perfect Christmas, parody art by Amy Crook

Sherlock’s Perfect Christmas, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

This year for Sherlock’s annual holiday card, I decided to give him a little bit of all of his favorite things — from Victorian wallpaper to modern murder, there’s a perfect Sherlock Christmas in the making.

I’m particularly fond of the gingerdead man — what’s your favorite part?

Inktober 2016, Week 3

Monday, October 24th, 2016

Three Inktober weeks down, one to go! It was another week full of Grand Days Out, so there’s a lot of easy stuff and a bit of more complex ink art. Some of these will be available as cards, some of them will be in a bookmark sale for my email list next month, and some of them are already spoken for.

Wimble

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016

Wimble, a Sherlock parody comic by Amy Crook

Wimble: Any of several boring tools, such as a gimlet or an auger; to bore with.
7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

This was only the second Word Art Wednesday, and I’ve already resorted to terrible puns. I don’t think this bodes well for you all, but hopefully you’ll enjoy them anyway.

I’ll be doing another of these tomorrow on Periscope, probably around 2pm Pacific. Come join me! Or watch me. Or at least my hands. Something.

Conversation Arts week 1

Conversation Heart art prompts

After recovering from the foolishness of doing a daily sketch project and NaNoWriMo in a single month (my advice: don’t do that), I felt ready to tackle the month of love and sarcasm! I bought a bag of large conversation hearts, and have been choosing (and eating) one out of the bag every day. The whims of fate and candy have brought you these seven sketches.

Candles Make it More Romantic

Thursday, January 14th, 2016

Candles Make it More Romantic, Sherlock fan art by Amy Crook

Candles Make it More Romantic, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper.

When Sherlock finally decided to go all-out for John and put candles on the table, he really put candles on the table. He starts to say, “I might have gone a bit…” but John interrupts with, “Angelo was right, Candles do make the table more romantic.”

A wonderful card for a Valentine or year round to show how nice it is to be loved just as you are.
