i have known about doctor who for ages. i never saw enough episodes on our old pbs station growing up to get and interest (plus, dad would always change the channel 9.9)

ken always loved the fourth doctor, and his favorite character was k-9.
i got him an action figure on k-9 one year, but i never looked into the series myself.

i was glad to hear the show had come back, but i always want to start with the beginning...
yeah, that's gonna be hard to not only find episodes of the first doctor, but to sit though them.
in any case, [personal profile] kotaotan  has gotten me hooked to the new series, and i'm slowing branching out with the old. i'm going to start with the second doctor instead. he looks much more approachable.

this one didn't take as long to draw as the spanish inquisition, but i'm thinking of making prints of it, too. 8^)

i still have tons to draw before megacon.
at least i have my tickets.

this skit never fails to crack me up.

the idea was to create some art for megacon next month.
i started off with a sketch card and ended up with a more detailed piece.

i plan on making prints of this one to sell at the con.

This was a "bon voyage/glad to see you again" present for my friend, with whom I had sadly lost touch until recently.

Tomoya was the college roommate of my first boyfriend.
I have fond memories of Tomoya and it was great to catch up with what he has been doing.
He is just wrapping up a month or so long stay here before going back to Japan.

I hope we keep in touch this time.

i'm going to megacon this year!
i'll be in the brown section of artist's alley with the rest of the nightgig crew and will be selling art prints, art/sketchcards, and taking commissions.
hope to see you there!

"Pulling Strings"
Portrait of Aimee Cole
Inks & Copic Markers on Bristol Board
January 2, 2010

Participated in a Secret Santa party this weekend (yeah, i know, Christmas is over, but still...) with [personal profile] kotaotan  and his friends.

I like to make things for gifts. Last year, i drew this for Valerie.
This year, I drew Aimee's name and it took me awhile to decide on what to draw.

Aimee is a muppet fan, so I decided to portray her as a muppeteer. Her muppet is a caricature of her husband, Scott.

"Waiting For Red"
August 2009
rollerball pen, copic sketch markers, sakura micron pigmas, & opaque white ink for highlights in a moleskine journal.

ever wondered what happened after grandma was eaten, but before little red riding hood arrived?
the wolf gets in character, of course!

i think mister b. b. wolf needs to work on his knitting.
the pattern is for a 2 legged long-john and he has 3 so far, but since he's using double-point needles and i haven't gotten the hang of them yet, i'll cut him some slack.

i loved playing with the patterns on his quilt.

and yes, the rollers that i put on miss ladybug are back. they were just too much fun and i didn't want a floppy, chef hat sort of thing that most illustrations put granny in.

"ladybug ladybug"
finished 7-18-09
copics, micron pigmas, pitt-castel brush pen, opaque white ink in a moleskine journal

the little rhyme was in my head a few weeks back.
changed the ending though. i have a friend who was burned as a teenager and another who lost a home in a fire. the implication of endangering little insect children, therefore, was not something i could bear...even if they were imaginary insect children.
i wanted to make this cartoony as possible.

so, little miss ladybug is on her way home from the local bug laundromat, taking her faithful pet mosquito for a walk, when she sees the smoke.

"two lights to guide her by"
pilot rollerball, micron pigma, copics, jellyroll pes, and opaque white ink in a moleskine journal.

drawn earlier this year, began inking about a month ago-with tweaks all along the way. these are characters from my on-very-long-hiatus webcomic, but i had an itch to draw them that day.
i didn't erase my pencil lines. if you look around ferdinand, you can still see some of it by his wings.

another difference is that i did not pencil in much of the background. i just had the moon and path roughly lined out. the rest i sketched in with the rollerball.
why is it purple? because that was the one i had that day, i.e. it was the first one i grabbed. it was the first time i drew with a rollerball, freehand, and didn't make any major mistakes.

yes, the bird is glowing in the dark. that's something i've always had in mind for his character and never had a chance to illustrate (or the skills to properly show it.)

private collection of by Scott Wegener, artist of Atomic Robo.
4x6" art card copic markers and white opaque ink (for highlights)
Atomic Robo © 2008 Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener

i know, took me forever to post these.
since this was created at a con and i lacked access to a scanner, a crappy digital camera pic was the only way i could record my art, since they now belong in the private collection of others. i've done some editing to try to get it looking right, but my apologies if it looks crappy.

i was initially disappointed by how blurry the looked, it discouraged me from posting them in the first place. hopefully, photoshop has fixed that, or at least made it tolerable.

my external HD is dead and a lot of art i hadn't gotten around to posting, not to mention all my webcomic files, etc, is gone; unless it can be retrieved off the drive.

this is one of several pieces that i neglected to move to my external. yay for files that have survived!

i didn't make too many art cards, originally planning to have them for cons this year, but it looks like i won't be able to go to any. there is always next year.

drew this as a baby shower present for my friend, [profile] lkemp.
her request was an image of her then pregnant self as a fairy, with pink and purple wings. i finished the sketch at the shower,  but i didn't get it done, however until a few weeks ago, as the gang got together for a cabin trip on the river. for awhile, i had though i had ruined the image when i started inking (outlines wwaaaayyyyy too thick).
leslie, if you want to use the art to make an lj icon, etc, consider this permission to do so. thanks again for scanning it for me. i hope you and [profile] macphile enjoy the art and the baby is adorable! much <3s to you both.

wow, i've been MIA! have tons of frakking stuff to post. will do so a little at a time.
and for those of you who are interested, photos from CAPE 4.0 live art night.

i managed to sell quite a few of the custom art cards this time. 8^) real happy about that.
i got photos of all, but i think the lighting wasn't so hot and some of the photos blurred.
will post them later.

MegaCon this year was so much cooler than last year and quite a lot has happened. This was a big one for me.

wished the marker lines didn't show up so much in the background, but what can you do? *shrugs* the colorless blender wasn't much help here.

originally, i was going to have her flip the viewer the bird, but the hand refused to be drawn. I compromised and now she flips us off, British style.

another page from my altered book. it's nearing completion.

was hanging with the ladiez when i decided to sketch a bit. above is the result. i have discovered in scanning this image that the copic color "cool shadow" is a lot like non-photo blue: it really doesn't reproduce very well. i can't see it at all in the scan. 8^( ah, well. *shrugs*

"convert to moles"
17 july 2007
copics and pen on paper

back in the fall, i overheard [personal profile] hillarygayle, [personal profile] starry_midnight and [profile] mustangtracy talking about chemistry homework. they kept saying something about "converting to moles" before working the equations...0.o and this is what my mind produced.

oh! congrats to [personal profile] wayfarersgirl - check this out! she and her sisters have several gigs this week. break a leg, ya'll! 8^)

and speaking of harry potter, i've volunteered to help out at the local b&n potter party. they've asked me to do face painting. now i must to find face paint! 0.o so far, hobby lobby has been a bust. boo.
not for sure if the acrylics i have would work. i know very well that my watercolors won't and i don't want something that would stain or cause angry parentage. that would suck.

most of my art so far has been in my altered book. will post that soon.

and lastly, end of the month i'll be moving out of dad's! i'll be sharing an apartment with [personal profile] jocelyncee's sis, becca. very excited about this. however, i'm scrambling to make sure i have enough for deposits, first months rent and payin' my current bills! *out of breath*

Tim (or was it [profile] madscott?) had a spiffy idea to sketch on preformated frames with the nightgig address. we all sat around saturday night after the con and sketched and drew. it was a blast.

just finished a belated gift for the wedding of my friend, hilary w., to basil h. i actually took my sketchbook to the ceremony to get the details on the dress right. tacky, i know, but right now i don't care. debating on whether to frame it or not...
i think i lost some of the likenesses when i inked the drawing. *shrugs* i kept the original pencils, so they can have that if they like it better.

i'm posting but i'm not good right now.
maybe later, i'll be ok, but right now i just want to scream. and no, it's not the drawings fault or hilary w.'s. i'm just an emotional wreck right now. if you pray, a few prayersfor me and my family would be most appreciated. thanks.
