CARRIE FISHER, REMEMBERED IN ART

We’re quickly approaching the one year anniversary of the day we lost beloved actress and icon, Carrie Fisher. Those of you that are familiar with my art and illustrations may remember the Princess Leia drawing I did several years ago:   As a result of her passing, sales of my print on Etsy went up and I wasn’t sure how to feel about that. It felt strange to profit from such sad news. Yet there were a lot of people {Read More}

DEATH PINUP

When I was 15 I was obsessed with Death… and all of her siblings. Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman was my favorite comic and I couldn’t get enough. It was a good thing that I got to the party so late because there were already 6 years worth of stories to read. I loved the way that something from early on in the series would come up again so many issues later and make me think “Oh, that was clever” or {Read More}

PROPAGANDA: INDEPENDENCE FOR SCOTLAND

On this beautiful Independence Day here in the USA, I feel like it’s important to talk about the upcoming referendum in Scotland on September 18th 2014. If I could vote in this national referendum, which poses the question “Should Scotland be an independent country?” my vote would be a resounding yes! Or as we say back in Scotland, “Aye!” I’m so excited for the referendum¬†even if it doesn’t pass quite yet, I think it’s wonderful that the question is being {Read More}

AHSOKA TANO: ONE LOVELY JEDI

This drawing presented a challenge: make a highly stylized animated character look a little more realistic. I wanted Ahsoka to look ¬†more like the Leia and Padm√© drawings and less like she does in the Clone Wars serials, but it’s not like I could base her likeness on a human actress. What to do?! It took some thought but I came up with what I thought the tough little Togruta would look like if she was to be played by {Read More}

LIGHTSABER GIF!

I’ve been posting screen shots on Facebook¬†¬†of the Ahsoka Tano drawing I’m working on for my Star Wars ladies set, but I wanted to go a little more in depth so I made an animated gif! I’m still working on tightening up the outlines and I haven’t added the shading to most of the handle yet, but I’m almost done with one of Ahsoka’s lightsabers so I ¬†thought before I’m finished I should show you my process in gif form. {Read More}

BOSTON METAPHYSICAL SOCIETY MINI-SERIES

I was asked by the lovely Madeleine Holly-Rosing if I would help spread the word about the Kickstarter campaign to fund the final three issues of her steampunk themed webcomic mini-series, Boston Metaphysical Society, and of course I said yes! The first three issues of the comic can be read on the website, which is great because that way you can make an informed decision about becoming a backer. And I hope you do because I want to find out how it ends! In {Read More}

MUTE

Look at this CG animation short from Dutch animation studio Job, Joris & Marieke! It is both utterly charming and seriously disturbing at the same time. I love the way they animated the boobs! Boobs. Boobs. Now that word doesn’t seem real to me. Anyway, according to this¬†post¬†from DigitalArts, the film has been screened at¬†the Dutch Film Festival and the Anim’est festival in Bucharest. Congrats J, J & M! ¬†–S.

ALEX’S OCTOPUS

My birthday is in February and this year I was gifted with a handmade card from my nephew, Alex. He loves to draw and I’ve been really into his drawings since he started. He has this confidence when he draws and I really admire the way he’s absolutely sure about every little line that he draws. The theme of my birthday card was land and the sea with the land creatures on the left side of the card and the {Read More}
