New digital stamps and a few ATCs + WOYWW


Here are a few ATCs I made last week for a portrait swap in the style of your favorite artist. I have TONS of fave artists so I went with Egon Schiele, Joe Sorren, Dave Kinsey and Klimt. These are mostly in markers and colored pencils. These were made for a swap on IllustratedATCs.com, my favorite card trading place.

Below are a bunch of new digital stamps that I just added to my Etsy store. A curvy mermaid, a sexy witch for Halloween plus a few cats and a whimsical toy robot because robots are awesome. I'm working on a few silly and dark stamps this week. I just can't make fairies and mermaids all the time even though that's what many people seem to want. I have to make something utterly ridiculous and gross now and then to feel right. Thankfully, there are plenty of card makers and digistamp users out there who like the ridiculous and the dark more than the cute and the fluffy. YAY!



Here's what's on my desk today. It's a mess of Copics, pencils, old tea bags and a dirty spoon, some art cards I'm working on as well as various bits of stuff. Same old mess! At least the dirty tissues didn't make it into the photo.

A WIP and a few stamps


Here's an illustration that I'm working on over the next few days, a pretty nature goddess. I'm still working out the composition and colors so things are likely to change. It's a WIP. I still have no idea what she's going to be holding in her hands! Flower maybe? An earth?

At left is a quickie portrait from a recent life drawing session. This model is one of my favorites. She has such a wonderful profile and I always try to find a spot to her side so I can draw her nose. Plus she's a fabulous model, always spot on with the poses. She reminds me of a master drawing (the one at right is from way back, an ATC in watercolor).

Happy PPF!

Blackwall, the beer lover!



I don't know if I've ever posted this before, but I'm a ridiculously huge Dragon Age fan (and Mass Effect too of course!). Dragon Age Inquisition is out soon and this is my favorite new companion, Blackwall. I had to draw him. Hunky grey warden who likes beer and swords? I'm all in! Sold. I had to draw Blackwall loving his beer.

Daisy on the couch


Here's Daisy, from the comic I've been working on (forever). I was trying out a grittier and darker style and think I'll go with this. I scanned the inks on Bristol board and then colored in Photoshop. This is the SFW version. The NSFW version is on my Tumblr.

Halloween Digital Stamps


I added quite a few new stamps to my Etsy store today since I noticed people are already searching for Halloween items. And who can blame them? Halloween is the BEST time of the year! My favorite holiday season. So here's a bunch of darker style stamps to start off the fun season. Ok... one caveat... these stamps come from older lineart I had so they're not exactly new. But they're new to you and that's what counts! Woo! The "Party of Evil" is my personal fave (at right).

I have an upcoming set of brand sparkly new Halloween stamps that will be released on the Design Team Challenge Blog on September 22. Woo! Some cute, some scary, some inbetween. Those will be available on Etsy on Sept. 22.




Below are a set of Zombie Tarot ATCs for a swap I'm in on a trading website. I'm not at all into Tarot cards but I am into zombies. It's still a good combination. Eventually, when the swap is completed, I will have an entire set of Tarot cards featuring ugly zombies from a whole bunch of different artists. That's pretty awesome. Maybe I'll learn how to use Tarot cards one day.

Sorry for the gore! Couldn't help myself.

Back next week :)
