April 2023 Patreon Sketches

Friday, February 23rd, 2024

It’s about time I started using this website again, don’t you think? Please enjoy the next, like, month’s worth of posts, which are all Patreon sketch cards from the past year.

We have 5 cards for 4 requests, because I wasn’t sure the abstract peony was working out, so I did the other one just in case, and then they both worked out so, extra flowers!

  • Eric asked for bunnies and gets a bonus Buffy quote (sold)
  • Nick asked for a peony and got two (both sold)
  • Rey asked for patience, and gets this dramatic bit of word art (sold)
  • Amy B wanted a kinkajou (sold)

Thursday, April 6th, 2023

So many requests that month! I had a lot of fun with them, despite a head cold that took out our whole household (but wasn’t covid, whew).

May 2022 Patreon sketches

Tuesday, March 28th, 2023

More sketches! A lot of these get sent to patrons for my quarterly packets, so they vanish into the mist never to be seen again. I’m pretty sure these have all been sent off to new adventures!

The right column is all filler cats, because I felt like continuing with some no-line, super sketchy cats after I finished the patron sketches. We have Raccoon, Pod, and Mal from top to bottom.

The left column, top down, is for patrons! Who all asked for machines, so I decided to break out the markers and have some sketchy no-line fun.

  • Rebecca S asked for trains and got this VROoooM train
  • Eric wanted Giant Robots and got the most ridiculous kitty kaiju training bot. He knows why. (sold)
  • Jefferson prompted “vacuum cleaner” and got a tumblr meme he won’t even know (sorry), Stabby the Roomba. (sold)

April 2022 Patreon sketches

Thursday, March 23rd, 2023

Guess who’s been doing sketches on Patreon for months and not posting them to the blog? It’s me! I’ll be getting the last many months of them out on the blog over the next few weeks, so please enjoy the ridiculousness.

  • This one wasn’t a prompt, I just wanted to draw trees and birbs on this orange sunset
  • Jeff asked for ‘distracted’
  • Another non-prompt experiment with salt and watercolor on yupo that got some marker topography
  • And ‘rose candy’ for Eric

These have all found a new home, but some of the later ones are still available for the discerning collector. You can also make an account and follow me on Patreon for free, where these are always posted publicly, or Instagram or Twitter, where I post some things as the mood strikes me.

February 2022 sketch cards

Tuesday, April 12th, 2022

It was a small month for requests, and then March gave me a terrible cold, so there’s just two quick, fun ones! There will have to be more made this month so I keep having plenty for my Snow Leopards, but please enjoy these two dumb jokes.

ACEO sketch cards by Amy Crook for Patreon supporters

  • Jeff prompted with the in-joke “Feast for Yoda” and got this equally obscure bit of humor back.
  • Rey & Amber prompted “no more spoons” and got this saying that came from… somewhere? But fuck if I know where. Sorry, person more clever than I.
