winter wishes..

Well, we have hit December so I don't feel guilty about having painted Christmas-y things.
Skyrim and life have left me a bit distracted from art lately. Felt good to paint this. I am really into cutesy-girl things, so painting this deer on deer sweetness was rejuvenating.

One day Su discovered her insides were home to two little birds.
shocking. But at least, she won't feel empty inside anymore.

Been a busy week. Lost two wonderful roomates ( :( ), and am now trying to fill the emptiness ( the apartment?) with something else. Tears.

silver-haired beauty

Really wanted to paint a fabulous older lady. Totally rocking her age and wearing her silver hair with confidence.

Been busy last week finishing up some backgrounds for our next book. It has left me wanting to draw lots again. Been working away at a larger project hoping to finish next year. :D

Its Meredith , the Scaredy Witch.

She used to have a broom, but she decided flying was too scary.

lets go to very distant lands

So, there have been a lot of awesome things with dragons lately, so I thought I would give it a shot too. Somehow drawing a dragon just turned into this guy...

...and the drawing just went on from there.
When I was younger I was way more into having an imaginary pet tiger (or something). But this would be pretty cool too.

Sunday, September 18, 2011


not really sure how I feel about this but... been having not-wanting-to-finish-anything problems. So spent time on a smaller painting could finish in relatively small amount of time.
feeling a little dead lately ...not enough kittens. :(

livin' the life

Hi there!
To continue on with my cat-related painting streak, here is a young crazy cat lady. What she shall grow into I think we can all imagine. And it is glorious.

In other news I gave my website an update.
Nothing major, but changes I will notice. Making it easier for updating. Mmm mm.

In other other news. Fan Expo has come and gone. It was great fun, and I am definitely going to go out again next year. Here are some of my leftover cards from the table this year.

like stealing candy from a baby..

.. ..Well, he was tired of walking around naked. And baby's shirt and hat looked like they would fit just right. Cat was generous though. After some investigation he decided to leave said baby's poopy diaper alone.

Picking up prints on Friday! How exciting.
Also. I have been painting a lot of cats lately. Some might say too many. But I disagree.

tea time

He just wants to be a part of the tea party.
Though no one will be having the tea from that cup anytime soon.

Just Peachy

Woo. Been feeling really 'inspired' to paint recently. Now I just want to paint cute and/or awesome ladies.

Peach is very good at getting kidnapped, so maybe going for a walk in the forest alone isn't the best idea for her.

Trying to get together what paintings I want to have printed for FanExpo in a few weeks. Getting very excited for it. Can't wait to sit there very awkwardly at my table. D:

Daenerys Targaryen. From A song of Ice and Fire series.

Or sort of how I have been picturing her. Haven't watched the Game of Thrones show yet. Feel the need to finish the books before giving the show a try.

Brave Ser Knight of the Ladies

This is Alistair (see it or not). In some part of the Brecilian forest. Because drawing trees seemed more romantic than some other Ferelden landscapes. Plus I am really digging drawing forests right now. Trees are pretty cool.

Now as much as a I have a huge crush on Mass Effect and Dragon Age. I am thinking I should do some non bioware game related art.

Plus I am itching to draw some STRONG female characters! ROAR.

Last painting before vacation time. Pose based off of sketch from last Dr. Sketchy's.
A Moon-lit babe with a knife.

treasure hunters annonymous

.... if games involve finding treasure, I am so there. I have a little bit of a problem in this. collecting/hoarding mania.

finished the first Uncharted game not long ago (behind with the times I know). Well, watched the game more like, game-play seemed too frustrating for me to stumble through so Nik went through it all. Somewhere nearing the end of the second game now. You know you would really think Drake would learn his lesson after 2 cursed treasures.

So been drawing backgrounds lately, and found I am really enjoying it. Going to try and paint a few more. Would like to get better at it.

And man. Can't believe it is already July. Going on Vacation next week for my twenty-somethingth birthday. Time flies.

my turian dreamboat

alien crush alert.
Garrus Vakarian, my turian dreamboat.
Mass effect geek out. We are just lucky I didn't paint hearts floating all around.

Orignally painted him sans scars... but really, he wears the scars so well.

..and of course, had to listen to this song while working on this.

sugar spice and everything nice

my heroes.
..Cartoons are funny. Was watching the Powerpuff girls along with episodes of Adventure time and wanted to do a tribute.... Still have soft spot for these girls.

I painted the gals while Nik was working on a Mojo Jojo. Was great fun.

he eats babies

I was so scared while painting this, I nearly wet myself.

Nah, Marcel may look a little upset. But really he has been lost in the bushes for days. Just now he found his way back home and realized he HAD left the iron plugged in. Poor guy.

Taking little break from fan art have been working on. To paint this slightly out of season little guy.

.....what. kittens, where?

I am incredibly jealous of his company right now.
Sten from Dragon Age.. because this drawing seemed appropriate. One thing first dragon age was lacking in. Cats.

Only has taken me so long to finish because I got distracted by Heavy Rain (amaaaaazing). Work is no excuse(but games are).

Also. very glad for nice warm weather today. Summer heat come at me. I am ready for youuuu.

what a babe.

This is how I feel on this beautiful weekend.
Complete with nose-drip protection.

oh myyy

Really into.. alien dreamboats lately. Mostly Because I started playing mass effect 2 again.

Here is alien babe started long while ago. the lovely Tali vas Normandy. her awkward lovestruck-ness with Commander Shepard kills me.

oooh. also got table at Fan Expo in Toronto this year with the lovely miss paula. Never been to such a thing and really looking forward to it. Though don't know at all what to expect.

guardian of the toilet.

This is Sir Prancelot.

He guards our bathroom and protects us from evil. For anything he can't ward off there is Air Refresher.

This job was proving too tough for Our Onion Girl (it brought tears to her eyes), so I was very grateful when the lovely Paula gave us this new guardian deity.

oh, Toadie.

Oh my dear sweet Toad. You are still on my mind. May you rest forever in a place free of balloons.

Sunday, April 17, 2011


mm. been a bit of a glutton lately. (What do I mean lately..) Well to be honest my love and I have a dangerous collective sweet tooth. So we always get into trouble. Have food fascination. Spent all of college barely being able to cook pasta, so have taken this last year to start learning to cook (a little). Its a nice change from living on toast and peanut butter.

Oh, speaking of Pie, recently finished reading life of Pi ( I am so behind the timesss). Have to commute for new job so taking the time on the morning bus to catch up on reading. Makes me enjoy getting up at 6 in the morning.

the sweetest thing

So this painting is from a set of sketches I made out last spring, that I have been waiting to get the right mind set to make. Different portraits of girls with flowers, contrasting different looks with flowers. This one is based off of a sketch of my sister.

ring ring ring ring

Old rotary phones are beautiful.
My grandmother recently gave me this beautiful old golden phone of hers, one that I have admired since I was a child. I needed to draw it, if only to have an excuse to stare at it for a while.

Along with a few old clocks and a beautiful decanter, there are a few more objects I need to draw. My grandparents house has always been full of wonders to me...

how about a glass of.. wine.

So dragon age has taken up a lot of my free time recently. May as well let it seep out into art as well.

Here is Fenris, brooding male number one. Enjoying a glass of wine, or mage's blood, or whatever it is he likes to drink. Not straight from the bottle though. Here he wants to have some class.

see you later alligator

Line version anyways. Going to try some colour variations here. Planning of making little notebooks of this guy. along with a friend of his... mister crocodile.

Doing some b&w kids illustrations. Getting dressed for different weather. Here are the first two kiddos.

the cat brothers under the tree

She hoped this would work.

After many attempts (unsuccessful ones I might add) to lure the elusive cat brothers out, she hoped this would be the one to get them into plain sight.

Why can't we all just be friends?


This is a warm up illustration for the next book I am making. Whether this will be what the final illustrations look like is another story.

oh my darlingg...

for my dearest love.

the perfect match

So this is part of my preliminary work for my next project. I am probably going to be in this phase for quite a while, but here is part of what I am working on.

Character designs. Oooh-aaaah.

Creating the perfect old couple is hard work. I haven't come to a final decision yet, but I know what I am leaning towards.

How to Catch a Cat. - Part One

I have decided to start another book. It will be a while before I have anything really substantial, but it will be about cats. And a girl.

This is coming out of a drawing I did a while ago (I will post it once I have finished painting it).
Anyways it is of the three cat brothers hiding behind a tree where a girl sits pretending to sleep.

tea time

So this is what I was working on for quite a while last year. A set of illustration and designs for tea and coffee packages. I really enjoyed this project and am really happy to have an actual physical product from all this time spent. I gave away a bunch of these as presents for Christmas, and kept a set I can use for my own tea and coffee.

As it stands right now I have made labels for the following:
Green tea
White tea
Earl Grey

Still thinking of making a few more kinds, as well as a tea party poster with all animals on it.
But yeah. Pretty happy with the end product and definetely want to pursue more projects like this in the new year.

Also, happy new year everyone.
