Smug Bond & Exasperated Q

Smug Bond & Exasperated Q, chibi emoji by Amy Crook

Smug Bond & Exasperated Q, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

Last month, I put out a limited number of spots for chibi emoji commissions on my tumblr, and this is the second pair! James Bond, notorious 007, is very smug about something. Something that’s got Q frowning and scolding him, so basically, business as usual.

These are drawn as close to a square aspect ratio as possible, so that they work as emoji on Slack. Their adorable 2-head-high chibi style conveys a lot of personality in a tiny space.

Arthur Facepalm & Smug Eames, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

Last month, I put out a limited number of spots for chibi emoji commissions on my tumblr, and this is the first pair! Arthur from Inception is facepalming over something, about which Eames is inordinately proud.

These are drawn as close to a square aspect ratio as possible, so that they work as emoji on Slack. Their adorable 2-head-high chibi style conveys a lot of personality in a tiny space.

Snow Angel Eames and Murder Mal, Inception chibi fan art by Amy Crook

Snow Angel Eames and Murder Mal, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

Have you been Incepted yet?

Eames has paused his mad rush to the center of the maze on the 3rd level of the dream to make a snow angel, because he can. And there’s murderous, lovely Mal, in her pretty dress from the first dream, hiding something a bit pointy behind her back. Watch out for that one!

Skeptical Saito & Hallway Arthur

Skeptical Saito and Hallway Arthur, chibi Inception parody art by Amy Crook

Skeptical Saito and Hallway Arthur, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

I have fallen into Limbo, aka Inception fandom, and I have no regrets. Here we have Saito in his delicious tux from the first dream, and Arthur in his beautiful blue suit from the famous 0G hallway fight (pose inspired by Powerpuff Girls, of course). These were a birthday commission for a friend of a friend, and I’m very happy to have been able to not only give a gift to her, but to the fandom, for secret reasons.

Gilded Sunset

Friday, March 3rd, 2017

Gilded Sunset, city skyline watercolor by Amy Crook

Gilded Sunset, 8″x8″ watercolor on Arches watercolor paper

This stunning painting would add a bright pop of warmth to any space. Rosy metallic gold sparkles off the shadowy buildings, backed by a brilliant sunset in reds, oranges, and pinks. You have to see this one in person to really appreciate its beauty.

Limned in light, this city skyline frames the red sun perfectly, hazy clouds making the sky above seem endless as it fades from gold to red. The sun itself is a glowing red sinking toward the horizon, just about the vanish for the night. A flock of birds floats above it all, circling in the sultry sunset.

Above, you can see the beautiful metallic watercolor shining up close, the warm rose gold a perfect complement to the brilliant sunset. Below, the painting is framed and waiting for just the right wall – is it yours?

Four for a Boy

Four for a Boy, atmospheric art by Amy Crook

Four for a Boy, 6″x6″ Primatek watercolor on Fluid watercolor paper

Mist obscures everything in this painting but the outline of a gnarled, drooping tree, branches bare in winter with just the tiniest hint of buds at their ends. Four black birds approach through the fog, and a figure all but dissolves into mist himself.

Is it foggier than it looks, or is the figure merely a trick of the eye?

This fourth installment of Counting Crows would make a lovely, creepy addition to your home, something to contemplate when the sun has burned away the mists of the day.

Above, you can see the eerie figure staring out from the mists, surrounded by the tree’s bare branches. Below, the piece is safely in a frame, just waiting to find the right house to haunt.

Sea Turtle 5

Tuesday, December 6th, 2016

Sea Turtle 5 by Amy Crook

Sea Turtle 5, 6″x4″ watercolor, Primatek watercolor, and interference watercolor on Arches cover buff paper

This grumpy sea turtle is giving you the side-eye as he glides through the sunlit water. He’s no more pleased about how 2016 is going than the rest of us.

The ocean is a rich blue streaked with secret shafts of sunlight that only show up at certain angles. The turtle in contrast is all of soft, natural pigments, muted and almost ghostly as he glides through his world of water and light.

This tiny painting would be perfect on a desk or in a cubicle, giving people the side eye for interrupting your work.

The sunlight shines on the subtle interference blue paint, above, showing off the artwork’s hidden highlights. Below, this tiny painting is tucked away in a small frame, perfect for a niche, book nook, or small bit of empty wall.
