Conversation Heart art prompts

I have had the flu all week! The blue ones are less awful-tasting when you can’t smell, but still pretty bad. Most of these have no color, because it’s hard to color when you’re coughing and sneezing and pathetic. I’m not dead yet, though! I’m feeling better! Anyway, the whims of fate and candy have brought these seven new sketches.

Conversation Arts 15: Wink Wink – $10

I admit, I googled bad Star Trek pick-up lines and picked my favorite for Kirk. Cheeky bugger.

Conversation Arts 16: Melt My <3 2

Conversation Arts 16: Melt My <3 2 – $10

Kitties are the perfect way to melt anyone’s frozen heart, even Anna’s.

Conversation Arts 17: Be Mine 2

Conversation Arts 17: Be Mine 2 – sold

I still haven’t had any proper tea this week. Herbal, yes, but I miss my Earl Grey!

Conversation Arts 18: Hold Hands

Conversation Arts 18: Hold Hands – sold

If you haven’t seen Galavant then I’m very sad for you. But I still super believe in Tad Cooper.

Conversation Arts 19: Sweet Pea

Conversation Arts 19: Sweet Pea – $10

Ahaha I was so sick when I did this, but I still find it hilarious. Especially the judicious use of glitter gel pen.

Thorin + Arkenstone = OTP.

Conversation Arts 20: Sweet Talk

Conversation Arts 20: Sweet Talk – $45 (colored)

It’s up to you who’s on the other end of the comm there. Kingsman is one of those movies I adore despite the parts I hate (ugh FPS violence), and rewatching it while sick totally renewed all my crushes.

Conversation Arts 21: True Blue

Conversation Arts 21: True Blue – $45

Stitch good.

Ohana means family. And family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.

Congratulations, Ellen, a Spock commission by Amy Crook

Congratulations, Ellen, a Spock commission by Amy Crook

I finished this commission this month for someone who wanted NuTrek Spock as a congratulations gift for a friend. This is what she had to say about it in her review:

When my friend passed the CPA exam I knew the occasion called for something special. Since one of the things we’ve bonded over was our mutual love of sci-fi movies a commissioned piece from Amy seemed like the way to go. First off, Amy is an absolute delight to work with. She responded to all of my emails quickly and was enthusiastic to collaborate. She let me know what was happening every step of the way from idea, to sketch, to color. The end result of her creativity was, as always, a quality product. I couldn’t be happier with my commission and I will definitely be buying from her again! Thanks, Amy!

-Rebecca

If you’d like to commission a comic as a gift (or for yourself!), you can get the details here.

Congratulations, Ellen, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper.

Enterprise

Enterprise, a Star Trek drawing by Amy Crook

Enterprise, a Star Trek drawing by Amy Crook

After drawing Kirk, Spock, and McCoy, I decided the next logical (heh) piece would be the Enterprise herself. I kept to the warm colors of the models from Star Trek: The Original Series instead of the colder versions you sometimes see in cgi versions, and I love how it looks floating in a sea of stars, phasers shooting off at some unknown enemy.

You can get the Enterprise and her three main men as a bookmark set in my Etsy shop.

I’m not certain what would cause Spock to want to give his Captain bunny ears with his Live Long and Prosper hand sign, but I’m pretty sure Kirk deserved it. Bones is not impressed, but Bones never is.

4 Red & Blue Bookmarks by Amy Crook

4 Red & Blue Bookmarks by Amy Crook

4 fandoms, 4 characters, 4 colors! Loosely rendered black drawings with grey shading, colored in scribbled blue with touches of red. Sherlock’s got a blue scarf and red buttonhole, the eleventh Doctor has his blue TARDIS and red bow tie, the debonair 007 has a blue tie and pocket square with a red cherry in his drink, and Spock is in his regulation science blue with a red screen on his original series style tricorder.

The original art from these sketchy designs will be in the next bookmark sale on my list, if you fancy your very own, or you can pick up the set shown above at my Etsy shop.

Home Sweet Yurt

Home Sweet Yurt, commission for Jess by Amy Crook

Home Sweet Yurt, commission for Jess by Amy Crook

I think Jess can explain this commission way better than I ever could, so allow me to put it in her words:

Have you ever had a friend who just totally gets you, right down to your very core, and she still doesn’t run away screaming? That’s my friend, A. Her friendship came into my life during a time of major changes and chaos, and having that friendship has really helped me stay grounded; she’s able to help me grow as a person while still totally accepting me, no questions asked, for the person I am right now.

I knew Amy had a lot of experience with fanatical fangirl expressions in art form, because I’ve long been a fan of her Etsy shop. I wanted to get a custom illustration for my best friend that would represent our friendship in a way that was both awesome and full of nerdy fun. I asked Amy to draw Spock to represent me (knowing she was already quite experienced in that area), and I hoped she wouldn’t turn me down when I asked her to put Spock next to Ironhide, who’s a Transformer (A is a big fan). And, on top of that, I wanted them to be making a quilt together (because, of course they’d be making quilts together! Right?!?).

Of course, I should have known, Amy was totally up to the challenge! This illustration is perfect; it’s everything I wanted, and THEN some. It’s so whimsical and fun while being a true representation of two fandoms that my best friend and I are really into, and it’s the perfect tribute to our friendship.

I gave it to her for Christmas, and she totally loved it! Her inner spark just glowed at the way Amy was able to translate our friendship onto paper, proving once again that a picture is definitely worth a thousand words (and then some)! It was the perfect thing to symbolize the past year of growing our friendship in ways neither of us imagined, and it’s a gift she will treasure forever.

In case you’re wondering, if you’ve got even just a faint idea of a cool piece of art you’d like to see come to life, Amy’s your girl. She was able to firm up the details and really polish the rough idea I had in my head to turn it into something that is going to be a treasured piece of art in my best friend’s collection. It was so easy to work with her on this project, and her talents did NOT disappoint.

Every fangirl dreams of having an an artist who gets it, to bring our fantasies to life with markers & paints. Amy is that artist; she’s one of us.

-Jess C.

Doubly Logical, a Star Trek parody comic by Amy Crook

Doubly Logical, a Star Trek parody comic by Amy Crook

After I drew this birthday card for Tara, I wanted something similar for my Etsy shop, but not exactly the same. I decided to double down on the Spock and add in Spock Prime with a bonus pair of Vulcan salutes. Live Long and Prosper, indeed!

The original sold to my Patron’s List about two seconds after I sent out the email — the advantage of living in the future for my Asian & Aussie people is that they get my midnight emails at a reasonable hour. But you can still get on a greeting card at Etsy, complete with birthday felicitations!
