illustration, silliness

Stuff from Ye Olde Sketchbooke.

I've been drawing every day most of the time, like every good little artist should, but for the last few months most of it has been for my book or my webcomic -- meaning I don't have a lot I can actually share just yet! But I'm trying to get in the habit of doing… Continue reading Stuff from Ye Olde Sketchbooke.

see, I’m posting again

I'm so totally sticking with my resolution this time!! *knocks wood, secretly expects not to post again for five years* Anyway, I finished another quick painting and thought I'd share. I'm experimenting with painting in Photoshop more than I used to -- I used to only paint traditionally and then do finishing touches digitally. But… Continue reading see, I’m posting again

art projects, goals, pen and ink drawings, work in progress

guinea pigs and lettuce and rabbits, oh my!

I'm working on too many projects right now, so that nothing actually gets done, but I've made some progress on one thing that I thought I'd post... I have a picture book called "The Lettuce Rancher" that I'm getting ready to submit to publishers, and right now I'm doing a bunch of sketches to lay… Continue reading guinea pigs and lettuce and rabbits, oh my!

Stuff for Coraline box swap (in progress)

Just thought I'd post some photos of what I've done so far for the Coraline mystery box swap that my little mochi organized. I just got my cigar box today, and it's so much cooler than the photos on eBay made it look! I was really nervous after I ordered it that it was not… Continue reading Stuff for Coraline box swap (in progress)

just a quick update on new stuff

Got a couple of things scanned in, one sketch for a new pen and ink drawing, and one finished pen and ink... This one is going to be part of another hand-made book I'm planning, along with the other drawings on the "New Stuff" page on my site--you can click on it to go look… Continue reading just a quick update on new stuff

some illustrations in progress

I decided a while ago that Owen's Uncles would be illustrated after all--I hadn't thought I would do illustrations for it because it's aimed at older kids, but then I thought, nah, it's too perfectly suited to some lovely little weird pen and ink drawings not to have them. And they are turning out to… Continue reading some illustrations in progress

just to prove that I’ve been working

Got to get some new art supplies yesterday and played around with them today--six new kinds of pen nibs! Very fun to try the different things that they all do best...some work well for fine lines, some are nice and flexible so you get lots of line variety and stuff. Here's a little bit of… Continue reading just to prove that I’ve been working

more sketches in the Orangutan series

NOTE as of 5/12/09: Where have all my pictures gone?! It's so aggravating. They've all just disappeared into the internet ether, and I see someone was viewing this screwed-up page just a couple of days ago, which must've looked totally lame. *sigh* So, uh, anyway, this note is to say, "coming soon," I guess? eh… Continue reading more sketches in the Orangutan series
