Snape is deeply unimpressed by your devotion. “The only way I’d want your heart is for apotion,” he declares on this whimsically morbid little unValentine card. If you’ve got someone you’d like to stop loving you quite so much, or just know someone who loves Snape and would get a giggle out of the sentiment, this is the card for you!
You can even get the original art to have Snape glaring down at you in all his cranky glory.
Only in a Potion, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic markers on paper, original $59 with free shipping.

Yes, that is a dime off in the distance there. Yes, they are just that wee. Somehow, I forget every time just how small they’re going to get! I have no idea what I’ll do with these, possibly a random giveaway. I have jump rings for them (which are ginormous compared to the actual charms) but it’s much easier to photograph them flat without.
Here you can see them before shrinking, next to a pair of scissors for relative scale. Their colors are also less intense, since they get much more pigment-dense when the material they’re on shrinks.
And then a clearer shot of the after, with the same pair of scissors and the additional dime for reference. SO WEE.

I wanted to make a silly Harry Potter Valentine card this year for my friends who love these characters, since not all of my friends got all fannish about Sherlock the way I did. One of them suggested Snape teaching Harry to brew those candy message hearts, and after googling for some bad Latin, this is the card front.
Of course, I couldn’t stop there, we had to see the results!
As you can see, someone’s got a bit of a crush on his teacher, but Snape’s still in denial. I’m sure it’ll have a happy ending, though.

I did a pair of Snape sketches a few years back, and I found this one lurking on my hard drive when I went looking for pieces to round out the week. They were sent off to friends who hopefully still appreciate them, and I’ve always liked this one a bit better of the two (ssh, don’t tell). I’d originally bought this paper hoping to do the trick with black & white Conte pencils, but the paper itself was too pale for the white to work will. Still, it’s come in handy for other pieces like this one — one thing I’ve learned over the years is that art supplies will always be useful someday!

I drew this years ago for a Halloween card exchange. Each costume and caption filled one eighth of one of those paper fortune tellers of the sort I used as a kid. I had to Google how to fold one, it had been so long! Perhaps next year I’ll make a Cthulhu one. Or Harry Potter himself, just so Snape can enjoy sharing the misery.

My little sketch sale was a success – I had a lot of fun doing a bunch of quickie art pieces, and I still have two left to go. I even sold most of the sample pieces I did, so I’m quite pleased overall. If you missed it, there’ll likely be a repeat again around the holidays. I’ve been told they make lovely gifts.
Thanks again to everyone who participated, whether by looking, buying, Tweeting or replying!

Sale done! Thank you to everyone who participated and made it a success.
After a week, I’ve sold a few sketches and, as is the way of things when there’s pens and paper out ready to be used, made a few more. The sale will go on for one more week, until the end of May. If you’d like to get your very own wee little sketch from me in the mail, there’s still a bit of time.
Here’s what I’ve been up to this week. Somehow, they all turned into cute fan art, go figure.
