January 2021 Patreon Sketches

Tuesday, March 30th, 2021

5 sketch cards by Amy Crook

From top left:

  • Eric asked for Peanut m&m as an Airbender and, well. Yeah. That’s a thing I’ve drawn now.
  • Roxanne asked for this quote, which got a little shiny visual along with the word art.
  • Kim asked for winter socks, and got bats ^^v^^
  • Amy B prompted “peacock” and got an abstract. It’s shiny!
  • And Jeff asked for “missing bff” which I made both silly and sad, like I do.

This finishes off January for me, which makes me briefly all caught up on sketches! Slowly, slowly, finding a new balance.

Espurr for Eric, crow in snow for Andria, the things in Jeff’s skull, Julius Ceasar and the Very Pointy Day for Dr. Tags, and Relax for Rey (most sold)

Fascism is Bad

Tuesday, September 8th, 2020

Fascism is Bad, 6″x6″ ink and watercolor on paper

Some people have the energy to protest, some of us have to stick with protest art. If you told me at any point prior to 2016 that I’d be worried about literal nazis in 2020, I would have thought you were crazy. Just goes to show.

This piece uses several different brush pens and some bloodily patriotic watercolor to make its point.

 

Nazis ruin everything.

Fascism is Bad, detail, by Amy Crook

Above, you can see the spattered red and layered ink on the D in BAD. Below, the art’s in a frame that’s not quite right for it — it would be perfect in a larger frame, or one of the acrylic frameless displays.

June 2020 Patreon Sketches

Friday, August 28th, 2020

I took some time off in July to have a lot of migraines, so that was great, but I’m feeling better now despite the state being on fire and everything, and hey, my theme of Black Lives Matter for those prompts is really still relevant, so here we go:

ACEO sketches by Amy Crook for Patreon supporters

  • Corinne wanted a BLM emoji for Slack, so I’ll be combining this with a Pride abstract I painted back in June for the actual finished item.
  • Kim asked for Scary Anglerfish in July, and since she hadn’t made a June request she got this guy

ACEO sketches by Amy Crook for Patreon supporters

  • Amy B asked for “no Pride without Marsha P. Johnson” and I found a great photo of her with a big hat.
  • Roxanne asked to be surprised with a black MCU character, so the Falcon flew in to say Black Lives Matter.
  • Jeff asked for George Washington Carver, and there’s a lot of dumb jokes in here since he invented a ton of peanut products but not peanut butter, and also a subtle dig on the whole gif pronunciation debate.
  • Rebecca S asked for Justice, and got this “No Justice, No Peace” word art.

Thank you for the support and patience of all my wonderful patrons, who keep me in tea and paint and cat food! You can be one of them here.

May 2020 Patron Sketches

Friday, July 24th, 2020

Everything is late and slow right now, please be kind to your artist! All of these got posted publicly to my Patreon when they were finished, and were drawn/painted by request of my lovely supporters there. Consider joining up as a supporter if you have a few dollars a month to spare!

ACEO sketches by Amy Crook for Patreon supporters

  • Amber asked for “I’m melting!” and got Ditto for, uh, reasons
  • Amy B asked for a bat and got this silhouetted fruit bat
  • Rey asked for Patience and I couldn’t resist making it a bit golden

ACEO sketches by Amy Crook for Patreon supporters

  • Another kitty portrait for Corinne, this time Gramsci being longcat
  • “Brain Fog” for Kim

ACEO sketches by Amy Crook for Patreon supporters

  • Rebecca was wondering what Bucky was up to, so I put him in a coffee shop AU. This IS his customer service face, tyvm.
  • Eric asked for a MerMay Cloud Strife, and yeah, I dunno. Emo boy is emo.

ACEO sketches by Amy Crook for Patreon supporters

  • PG asked for a porcupine, and got this fellow and his bad hair day.
  • Deinvati asked for Shark and knew exactly what she was gonna get. It’s DC canon now, don’t blame me. It’s naughty, so click to see a less-censored version. Mom, don’t look! XD Uncensored version linked here with more, uh, related art.
  • Andria asked for dark purple lisianthus, and got some floofy abstract flowers.
  • Grace asked for Escape and I’m afraid I can never hear that word and not think of Dory. Esss-cahp-ay!

Thanks once again to all my wonderful supporters, who keep me in tea and paint and cat food! June’s very late sketches coming soon to an internet near you.

Feb & March 2020 Patreon sketches

Thursday, May 14th, 2020

Back in Feb & March, in the before times and the between times, some Patreon patrons gave me sketch requests! I’ve been slowly filling these as the months go along (they normally get filled the month after they’re requested), but forgetting to share them here.

And so, a lot of art with very little explanation!

Stay tf Home

Thursday, April 30th, 2020

word art reading STAY the fuck HOME by Amy Crook

Stay tf Home, 5″x5″ brush lettering and watercolor on paper

I did this piece for Instagram back in March but the sentiment continues, and will continue, to apply.

Stress and creativity are weird bedfellows, uncomfortably clashing and mixing in strange ways. There’s not going to be the same kind of Floating Gallery in May because things aren’t done, but some commissions are getting off the books instead, which is its own kind of goodness. My Patreon patrons continue to be a source of support and delight, and their sketches are also getting done, albeit slowly. They will get first dibs on anything that drops in May, including this piece.

Stay safe, be well, and pet your animals. At least the ones that don’t bite.
