4 bookmarks by Amy Crook, pen & ink and Copic marker

4 bookmarks by Amy Crook, 1.5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on comic backing board

My wonderful backers on Patreon this month gave me some great prompts, and so we have a dragon, a cat, some spring flowers, and Rory from Gilmore Girls. I was apparently feeling the purple, though to be fair I knew the dragon person liked purple, and I’ve always associated spring with lilacs.

If you’d like to see me sketch to your specs next month, become a patron yourself!

Untitled Experiment 1

Untitled Experiment 1 by Amy Crook

Untitled Experiment 1 by Amy Crook

I painted this a few years back when I was experimenting with a lot of different styles. In this one there’s a lot of visual texture, as well as a bit of gloss in the periwinkle rectangle from the painting medium that also gave it its transparency. People have asked me what it’s supposed to be or mean, and I have to admit that I just liked the way it looks. I like that something as simple as four overlapping rectangles gets a lot of complexity from little brush strokes, variations in color and opacity and even the softness of the edges.

This piece isn’t edge-finished yet, but I plan to paint over the white edges & staples with black so it could be hung without a frame. Well, I hang it without a frame anyway, but I’m special like that.
