March 2024 Patreon Sketches

Monday, May 13th, 2024

I wrote a LOT of words last month (over 50K!) on the new Consulting Magic book, so these were a little late, but I got ’em done. Enjoy!

  • Amber asked me to do “the artist in residence” (me) so I went a little ridiculous with it. (sold)
  • Jefferson prompted “barcodes on the brain” and really I don’t know what else you could expect from me. (sold)
  • Nick wanted a baby Chocobo.
  • Amy B said “grumple” which I decided was “grumpy skrunkle” and there he is. (sold)
  • Catherine asked for a Princess Fish.
  • Deandra asked for the Queen Bees from To Hive and to Hold, and I did the more alien-looking one, only I’m just not great at translating them from my brain so you know, don’t take her as canon lol.
  • Kelly wanted a cat + dragon, and gets this draconic kitty. (sold)
  • Eric asked for Cloud Strife in a dress, and, welp, here he is! (sold)

I hope you guys have had a great April and don’t get rained on too much!

Still Death

Thursday, April 4th, 2024

Still Death by Amy Crook

Still Death, 6″x4″ watercolor on paper, $200.

It’s like a still life, but eerie! Little creepy doll fingers poke their shiny green flesh up out of the rust-streaked soil, while the cracked head is helpless to do anything but watch. Bats fly in the on the sulphur winds and

The whole tiny painting is the size of a postcard, perfect to hide in a bookshelf or niche for extra spook points.

November 2023 Patreon Sketches

Monday, March 18th, 2024

We’re catching up! Since patron sketches get done the month after requests, December’s the last of this batch (though January will be ready before these are all posted, lol).

As requested! 😻 There’s two sets, watercolor & ink/marker, so please enjoy both.

  • Jo asked for “something banishing winter gloom with light”
  • Jeff asked for “time shift” and this winter winds blowing the autumn away is the second try (sold)
  • Rebecca W asked for “giant Lapis tiny Lenin” since it often looks that way in pics
  • Rebecca S asked for honeybees! (sold)
  • This was the first try at “time shift” for Jeff, but somehow the ‘Murica overwhelmed the Doppler reference.
  • Next comes my wee monster Andy and “ew mouthpets!” for SaraBeth (sold)
  • Eric wanted “Loth cat Ezra” and got Ezra as a Loth cat, because why not? (sold)
  • Corinne asked, “Is Mikey CAKE?”
  • And finally, Amy B asked for a Christmas vampire and got this charming, trustworthy fellow (sold)

Lots this month! Patreon supporters were engaged or something.

y’all asked for a LOT of cards the month before I went and got covid, dang! I’m late but not outside of September, so I’m going to consider it a win. There’s quite a range of styles this time, because I tended to get 2 done and then have to fuck off and do something else, lol. Enjoy!

  • Eric wanted cookies & cream and got ghost Oreos (sold)
  • Amber asked for the 1st day of school (sold)
  • SaraBeth asked for autumn vibes
  • JoVE asked for “ready for summer but it’s raining” (sold)
  • Jefferson asked for “hotberg icetub” because he loves to torment me (sold)
  • Andria wanted dragon(fruit) shaved ice
  • Nick asked for a Princely Bottom a la Red White & Royal Blue
  • Kelly wanted space! I love painting space cards, ngl. (sold)

And that’s all of them! So many!

May 2023 Patreon Sketches

Monday, February 26th, 2024

Another small batch of monthly sketches, for those Patreon supporters who dropped me a prompt!

Got ’em done under the wire! As you can see, the requests were full of kitties, which seems predictable given everything. XD

  • Amy B asked for a kitty monkey-climbing, and got this orange sketchy boy going up a shelf like it’s his job. (sold)
  • SaraBeth Ray asked for kitty heaven, and so we have this little abstract kitty-soul surrounded by many favorite things! (sold)
  • Eric wanted mermay but cats, and gets this mermeow in soothing green and blue. (sold)
  • Jefferson quoted a favorite in-joke, “Where’s my melon scoop!” which is a line from Tony Shalhoub in Stark Raving Mad. I had to do some googling to recreate that terrible 90s facial hair. (sold)
