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!

February 2024 Sketch Cards

Thursday, April 11th, 2024

New month, new sketch cards! I’m mostly busy writing the 4th Consulting Magic book this month, but the blog won’t go totally neglected again. There’s at least these, after all.

I want to say I’m feeling messier than usual but let’s be real, these are pretty average. But hey, they’re on time!

  • Amber asked for Sportsball and I did this motley thing (sold)
  • Kelly wanted a dragon and got a tiny one with a tiny hoard (sold)
  • Jeff asked for ghost stories and got gossiping ghosts (sold)
  • Eric asked for and got beets (sold)
  • Amy B wanted cheese and got a bonus cheese-hoarding dragon (sold)
  • SaraBeth wanted something silly and Trotsky volunteered to be blobbed (sold)

In Dreams

Monday, April 8th, 2024

In Dreams by Amy Crook

In Dreams, 6″x4″ watercolor on paper, $200.

Kitty!

This sleeping feline is floating among the stars, at least in its dreams. The paper glows through a bright white where the cat is outlined, and the sky itself has swirls of black, blue, and violet all through it, showing through stars out into the infinite. Perfect for a nap!

Crescent Moon

Sunday, April 7th, 2024

Crescent Moon by Amy Crook

Crescent Moon, 5″x7″ watercolor and pen & ink on paper, $250.

This little night scene is more my usual thing, though the cypress trees are evergreen and therefore look alive all year long. Their long shadows are subtle against the deep blue-and-purple sky, and there’s even a cat hiding among them to grace us with its presence.

Instead of corvids we have a little trio of batty bats flying past, which you can see in the detail photo.

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)

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)
