May 2020 Patron Sketches

Friday, July 24th, 2020

Everything is late and slow right now, please be kind to your artist! All of these got posted publicly to my Patreon when they were finished, and were drawn/painted by request of my lovely supporters there. Consider joining up as a supporter if you have a few dollars a month to spare!

ACEO sketches by Amy Crook for Patreon supporters

  • Amber asked for “I’m melting!” and got Ditto for, uh, reasons
  • Amy B asked for a bat and got this silhouetted fruit bat
  • Rey asked for Patience and I couldn’t resist making it a bit golden

  • Another kitty portrait for Corinne, this time Gramsci being longcat
  • “Brain Fog” for Kim

  • Rebecca was wondering what Bucky was up to, so I put him in a coffee shop AU. This IS his customer service face, tyvm.
  • Eric asked for a MerMay Cloud Strife, and yeah, I dunno. Emo boy is emo.

  • PG asked for a porcupine, and got this fellow and his bad hair day.
  • Deinvati asked for Shark and knew exactly what she was gonna get. It’s DC canon now, don’t blame me. It’s naughty, so click to see a less-censored version. Mom, don’t look! XD Uncensored version linked here with more, uh, related art.
  • Andria asked for dark purple lisianthus, and got some floofy abstract flowers.
  • Grace asked for Escape and I’m afraid I can never hear that word and not think of Dory. Esss-cahp-ay!

Thanks once again to all my wonderful supporters, who keep me in tea and paint and cat food! June’s very late sketches coming soon to an internet near you.

Feb & March 2020 Patreon sketches

Thursday, May 14th, 2020

Back in Feb & March, in the before times and the between times, some Patreon patrons gave me sketch requests! I’ve been slowly filling these as the months go along (they normally get filled the month after they’re requested), but forgetting to share them here.

And so, a lot of art with very little explanation!

Stay tf Home

Thursday, April 30th, 2020

word art reading STAY the fuck HOME by Amy Crook

Stay tf Home, 5″x5″ brush lettering and watercolor on paper

I did this piece for Instagram back in March but the sentiment continues, and will continue, to apply.

Stress and creativity are weird bedfellows, uncomfortably clashing and mixing in strange ways. There’s not going to be the same kind of Floating Gallery in May because things aren’t done, but some commissions are getting off the books instead, which is its own kind of goodness. My Patreon patrons continue to be a source of support and delight, and their sketches are also getting done, albeit slowly. They will get first dibs on anything that drops in May, including this piece.

Stay safe, be well, and pet your animals. At least the ones that don’t bite.

Patreon sketches for December 2019 requests

Thursday, January 30th, 2020

I’ve decided to stick with my new standard size for Patreon sketches from now on, so everyone gets a standard ACEO (artist card, edition original) aka trading card size piece of art when they make a request. Patrons also get to see exclusive photos, including cat pics, works in progress, and other such shenanigans. Plus, they get the warm feeling of contentment that they support the arts every month!

I’ve also been doing some figure sketch practice, so expect to see more actual people at some point! I’m pretty happy with how the sketches are coming out, even if I haven’t done a ton of them yet.

My commissions queue is full, so I’m working hard on clearing the decks so I can open them up again, as well as finally editing my newest book (it’s so close to done omg), and finishing up some other long-overdue projects. I don’t think it’s possible to feel caught up anymore, but I have hopes that someday I’ll have space to breathe and take on new work!

In the meantime, the January requests post is still open, if you want to join us on Patreon!

Forgiveness

Wednesday, March 6th, 2019

Forgiveness by Amy Crook, abstract art in the Aglow series quoting Desmond Tutu

Forgiveness, 12″x12″ watercolor on paper

Desmond Tutu wrote an entire book titled No Future Without Forgiveness, and the title resonated with the soft, earthy swirls of this painting. There’s two different pieces in my Aglow series this month, and this one called out for a quote about forgiveness to float atop the warm spiral.

A patron commented that it looked like milk being stirred into tea, which fits perfectly with the feeling of warmth and care — for oneself, for others, for the world — that I had hoped to convey.

Be Kind

Sunday, March 3rd, 2019

Be Kind by Amy Crook, abstract art with word art text

Be Kind, 8″x8″ watercolor on paper

The second new painting in my Aglow series this month, this one’s got a quote from another wonderful human being who inspires us to be better humans — Mr. Rogers.

There are three ways to ultimate success: The first way is to be kind. The second way is to be kind. The third way is to be kind.

The message was shortened for this small painting, but still contains his threefold wisdom: be kind. be kind. be kind.
