Tea Shelf

Tea Shelf by Amy Crook

Tea Shelf, 8″x4″ pencil and watercolor on Fluid watercolor paper

Cup, cup, cat, cup, cup, tin.

Whimsy and tea, what more could you want? This delightful little watercolor shows a shelf of goodies, from a beautiful celadon teacup and saucer to a cheerfully antisocial mug. The gloved “hands” that hold up the shelf add to the delight, especially with a wee mouse sleeping happily in one of them. The sleeping-cat figurine might be my favorite part.

What’s yours?

Above, you can see the mug that I really do need to get made, and the adorable sly grey kitty figurine next to it. Below, the piece is in its temporary frame, showing off before it gets whisked away to its new home.

Tea: Molly Hooper

Tea: Molly Hooper, Sherlock parody art by Amy Crook

Tea: Molly Hooper, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

One of my favourite patrons commissioned me to draw a series of 4 little comic portraits of her favourite characters with their favourite teas. Favourites all around!

This last piece in the Tea Series features the adorkable Molly Hooper, the pathologist from whose morgue Sherlock keeps borrowing all manner of unpleasant items. She’s got a soothing cup of Darjeeling, probably to help her nerves after one of Sherlock’s visits.

Tea: Lestrade

Tea: Lestrade, Sherlock parody art by Amy Crook

Tea: Lestrade, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

One of my favourite patrons commissioned me to draw a series of 4 little comic portraits of her favourite characters with their favourite teas. Favourites all around!

This third piece in the Tea Series features DI Lestrade from the BBC Sherlock series. The put-upon detective inspector needs a strong, bracing cup of Assam to help him keep up with Sherlock’s antics.

Tea: Q

Thursday, April 14th, 2016

Tea: Q, commissioned fan art by Amy Crook

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

One of my favourite patrons commissioned me to draw a series of 4 little comic portraits of her favourite characters with their favourite teas. Favourites all around!

This second piece in the Tea Series features Q from the most recent James Bond films, drinking Earl Grey out of his Scrabble mug. He’s not in his pyjamas, so obviously this isn’t his first cup. Let’s hope he hasn’t caused too much destruction in his day yet, or had cause to strangle 007.

Tea: 11th Doctor

Thursday, March 24th, 2016

Tea: 11th Doctor, commission art by Amy Crook

Tea: 11th Doctor, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

One of my favourite patrons commissioned me to draw a series of 4 little comic portraits of her favourite characters with their favourite teas. Favourites all around!

This first piece in the Tea Series is the Eleventh Doctor, drinking delicately out of his decorated cup and saucer. I’d like to say the Time Lord knows better than to put milk or sugar in his oolong, but this is a man deeply fond of fish fingers and custard in combination, so who knows.

We’ll get to the other three next month, after the Floating Gallery has drifted away.

Conversation Heart art prompts

February is almost over, and these are the last of the conversation heart sketches. I went through and isolated all of the prompts I’d not yet drawn (but still pulled them at random each day), and that took me exactly through the end of the month. Yay!

I get a bit Genghis Khan. Also known as the most adorkable music video ever.

This sketchy art is perfect for the Mad Hatter’s sketchy personality – but at least he’s got sweet treats for us.

What better to be happy about than a Pooh Bear and his very best Piglet?

Conversation Arts week 3

Conversation Heart art prompts

I have had the flu all week! The blue ones are less awful-tasting when you can’t smell, but still pretty bad. Most of these have no color, because it’s hard to color when you’re coughing and sneezing and pathetic. I’m not dead yet, though! I’m feeling better! Anyway, the whims of fate and candy have brought these seven new sketches.

Conversation Arts 15: Wink Wink

Conversation Arts 15: Wink Wink – $10

I admit, I googled bad Star Trek pick-up lines and picked my favorite for Kirk. Cheeky bugger.

Conversation Arts 16: Melt My <3 2

Conversation Arts 16: Melt My <3 2 – $10

Kitties are the perfect way to melt anyone’s frozen heart, even Anna’s.

Conversation Arts 17: Be Mine 2

Conversation Arts 17: Be Mine 2 – sold

I still haven’t had any proper tea this week. Herbal, yes, but I miss my Earl Grey!

Conversation Arts 18: Hold Hands

Conversation Arts 18: Hold Hands – sold

If you haven’t seen Galavant then I’m very sad for you. But I still super believe in Tad Cooper.

Conversation Arts 19: Sweet Pea

Conversation Arts 19: Sweet Pea – $10

Ahaha I was so sick when I did this, but I still find it hilarious. Especially the judicious use of glitter gel pen.

Thorin + Arkenstone = OTP.

Conversation Arts 20: Sweet Talk

Conversation Arts 20: Sweet Talk – $45 (colored)

It’s up to you who’s on the other end of the comm there. Kingsman is one of those movies I adore despite the parts I hate (ugh FPS violence), and rewatching it while sick totally renewed all my crushes.

Conversation Arts 21: True Blue

Conversation Arts 21: True Blue – $45

Stitch good.

Ohana means family. And family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.
