In-betweeen drawings of cats, I sometimes work on other things. This is a family portrait I did recently.These are some awesome people I work for (well the dog and little girl make some appearances too..). I think painting the kid and all the goggles were the most fun parts.
It was a hard decision, what type of dino-robot to paint, but you can see what won in the end.
Note that there are no cats at all in this picture. This was a challenge.
Cat's in Space will be zine number two. The contents are still a mystery, but after having a encouraging response to C is For (cat) (Thank you for bombarding me with cat stories and photos. Love it). I really want to make more little books.
This one will not be an activity book, but I still want to make a new papercraft for the end of the book. I have started building an army of paper kittens from the last zine, but it's not enough.
Should be ready for Canzine in October (Hopefully :D)
Here are some Mass Effect portraits I just finished up.
Felt like drawing some aliens basically. And, snuck jack in there because she is super fun to draw (with her gigantic lips). Going to hopefully conclude my playthrough of Mass Effect soon. Still have yet to play through number 3, but I will get there eventually. (Mainly just me being stubborn and not wanting to use Origin...)
Since I have officially entered crazy-cat-ladydom, I felt compelled to create a book dedicated to cats. Also, it is an activity book because I think activities are cool and oh so fun. (who says they are just for kids! ) Every book has a unique, hand-coloured button on front. So many kinds of cats!
I'll post some sample illustrations later. Some of my favourites include a cat-icorn, gamer cat and a make-it-yourself papercraft kitten.
I REALLY like making these sorts of Activity illustrations, so will likely cook up another project like this soon. Maybe something with more Professor Layton-like puzzles.
So I am sort of, kind of in love with Professor Layton.
I picked up Professor Layton and the Last Specter a little while ago, it it has rekindled my affection for the Professor Layton series and its puzzle-loving residents. The quirky characters in every game always make me happy. Such fun drawings. :D
Cat Portrait, the Crazed-eyed Cat, Max Sweet Potato (Yamchops).
The other kitty Nik and I adopted a little while back.
The crazy one.
His favourite things are chasing his tail, attacking the mouse on computer monitor, attacking pencils when someone is trying to draw, stealing his brothers food, and flaying his favourite toys. Demands attention by shoving his face into your hand.
Favourite place to sleep: my keyboard, second to the inside of our couch.
One of the kitties Nikola and I adopted from the cat rescue a few months ago. The quieter of the two cats, he enjoys napping, belly rubs and stealing whatever toy his brother has found. He likes to flop and then cry to be pet, but always flops down just far enough away you have to get up to pet him.
He still can't properly meow so it comes out something like "ekkkk."
This was something I did at work a while back. For a kind of silly story about a lady who found a family of ferrets living in her hair.
I haven't posted a lot of stuff from work, but I made this and a bunch of backgrounds for kid's philosophy books. This is from the Kids Think About It: Epistemology book. (http://kidsthinkaboutit.com/)
So here is a commission I finished recently. A few characters from various sci-fi stuffs chillin' in a bar. Do you know who they areee?
Also, in a very exciting news update about my life.. Nikola and I just adopted two adorable little kitties. After waiting something like 4 years, I am beyond pleased. They have those little earss and whiskersss and I am already on my way to being a full blown cat lady.
On that note. Here are some blurry photos of the kitties.
:) have some of the greeting cards I made up there. and working on something new I can show you all soon. Was my Christmas present for everyone this year.
:D :D About 75% done storyboarding a short comic I want to make. Sill be the first comic I have made since the web comic I made back in high school. stoked to work on it, even if progress has slowed down lately.
