Inktober 2021, Days 11 to 17

There was a hiccup in this year’s Inktober, between days 11 and 17. I had to be offline for a few days due to a death in the family.

It’s been hard. I’m taking things one step at a time, and taking breaks to be gentle with myself. But drawing has been helping me move forward.

With that all said, let’s continue the adventure of Malaminx and Beatrice…

It’s quite a puzzler, ladies!

(By the way, for folks who backed The Legend of Jamie Roberts, volume 1 on KickStarter… there’s been a snafu. Please check the updates for more info.)

That’s all I have for now. Thank you for checking in.

You. Are. Awesome.

Inktober 2021, Days 4 through 10

Inktober is an artist challenge to draw in ink daily in October. This year, I’m drawing a panel a day for a new story. Be sure to read the first 3 days here. And now, Days 4 through 10…

Inktober IS Happening This Year!

Remember how I said I wouldn’t do Inktober in this previous check-in post? Well, Inktober IS happening!

I got inspired by vigoburrito and their webcomic, The Divine Intervention. They drew that comic one panel at a time and posted it on Instagram.

So I thought, “What if I drew a comic one panel at a time for Inktober?”

Here’s what’s been drawn as of yesterday, October 3rd:

inktober 2021 panel 1
inktober 2021 panel 2
inktober 2021 panel 3
inktober 2021 panel 4

Yup! I’m drawing witch kitties – like from Kitties By Kelci on RedBubble.

What will happen next? Be sure to tune in on my Instagram! I’ll also post once a week here on the blog with updates.

Because of Inktober (and other work), I’ll be updating this blog less frequently. Just once a week for now. But know that other projects (like KickStarter fulfillment and commissions) are coming along.

That’s all for now. Thank you for reading!

The Dragon Mage

the dragon mage illustration. This piece pictures a young woman in a sports bra and skirt sitting on a cushion with her hands up and cupping ethereal smoke. The smoke lingers before her in the shape of a dragon head. The trail of the dragon smoke twists on the canvas until it trails back to its source - an open teapot.

I’m surprised I never posted this on the blog before. But here she is – The Dragon Mage.

The Dragon Mage is available as a hi-resolution download! But only for Ko-Fi supporters and Patreon patrons. I’ve been posting hi-res downloads for supporters, and I plan on keeping that up.

But maybe there will be more art like this? I’m thinking about it…

If you’re curious, The Dragon Mage is drawn with fine line markers, a brush marker, and color Copic markers. I really like the simplified color palette here.

That’s all I have for now. But maybe there will be more art like this in the future? We’ll see.

Thank you for checking this out!

I’m Showcasing My Work At Aistear Brewing

Starting today, and running until October 22, I’m showcasing my work at Aistear Brewing in Bowling Green, Ohio! Ah, my old stomping grounds.

I reached out to the owner and asked if he was interested in showing off my prints. He agreed – and he also offered me a spot in Aistear Con in October. These prints and mini-prints will be on display in their gaming area until the start of Aistear Con on October 22.

Not in the area? Some of these prints (but not all) are also available in my Ko-Fi shop. Some of the prints on the wall are exclusive to Aistear, though (sorry).

That’s all for now! Thank you for your support! Without it, I wouldn’t have gotten this far.

You. Are. Awesome.
