blue and gold Swablus cuddling on a branch, by Amy Crook

Swablus, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

My Pokemon commission patron has refreshed his list with a new batch of shiny goodness, and we’re starting with this adorable pair of Swablu, They look nice together in the non-shiny blue and shiny gold, hanging out and snuggling up in the chill spring night.

These two will make an adorable Valentine when the time comes, don’t you think?

Collard Greens

Collard Greens, an illustrated recipe by Amy Crook

Collard Greens, 5″x8.25″ pen & ink and watercolor in a watercolor Moleskine

Another addition to the cookbook project — you can see that I did the inks back in 2017, before the universe entirely fell apart around me, and am finally getting the scan edited and ready to share with you.

I get collard greens in my produce box sometimes, and since I don’t like pork we had to google around to find a way to cook them. I discovered that 2 turkey legs is a lot of meat, so we end up doubling up the collards with something else from the box a lot. Rainbow chard is a favorite!

I’m entirely certain that my red beans & rice recipe is Very White so I haven’t included it, as is this one, really, so take it with a grain of salt.

The advantage of this is that all the ingredients are pretty inexpensive, even out here in California. I can usually get a pair of turkey legs for around $5 and make a lot of meals out of this when the turkey meat is chopped up and added back into the mix.

You Are Enough

Tuesday, March 19th, 2019

soft goat farmer Bucky knows you are enough just as you are

You Are Enough, 8″x10″ ink on paper

Another day, another finished commission! Roxanne asked me for an affirmation, along with a chibi, on a larger page than my usual. Since I knew she likes the Winter Soldier, I drew soft goat farmer Bucky from end of Black Panther, though I gave him a gold wrap instead of the red one to go with his blue shawl.

The goats are both from goat memes, and they just really wanted to come along for the ride.

All of them agree on one thing, though: You are enough just as you are.

Baby Cthulhu

Thursday, February 21st, 2019

Cthulhu in a pink bonnet and diaper, with yellow teddy bear slippers, holding a teddy bear's head and sucking on a pacifier, by Amy Crook

Baby Cthulhu, 8″x10″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

My friend Amber had a baby and I’ve been given the duty of being the lad’s fairy gothmother. So far that’s mostly consisted of helping keep mom sane, but she also commissioned me to draw something for the baby’s room.

Cthulhu here is a bit crabby about his getup, from the pink bonnet and binky to the happy yellow slippers. He’s expressing his displeasure with some rather graphic threats enacted on the poor teddy bear. Watch out, this Elder God’s not too into his naptime after all.

Want a Cthulhu shirt of your own? I put this baby on Redbubble so you, too, can sport a cranky Cthulhu.

Bane and Blake

chibi John Blake and Bane from TDKR by Amy Crook

Bane and Blake, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

A lovely teacup-sized human commissioned some chibi goodness a while back, and here they are! Bane and John Blake from Batman: The Dark Knight Rises, looking just as grumpy as you might expect when faced with each other. They never actually meet in the movie, thankfully, probably because Blake is too busy doing every single police-related job and possibly also walking people’s dogs or something.

Yet Another Commission* is done! This is Eames as an EMT and Arthur as a night-shift worker at the actual real convenience store chain Kum & Go. They’re flirting over a cup of coffee, with some cute blushes and happy faces, because it doesn’t matter what universe they’re in, they’re adorable together.

*Getting closer to the end of the list!

Matrix Eames and Grumpy Arthur

Eames dodging bullets Matrix style and Arthur flipping off the audience, chibi art by Amy Crook

Matrix Eames and Grumpy Arthur, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

Another of my fellow fangirls wanted some extra special chibis for our Slack emoji, and so we have some ridiculousness. Matrix Eames was especially fun to do with his wobbly bullets and super shiny outfit, and then grumpy Arthur brings both attitude and fashion sense to the table. The commissioner was delighted, the Slack group was delighted, so really only Arthur is put out by any of it.
