A Return to Donuts

My brother and his longtime girlfriend are getting married! To celebrate the occasion, they’re going to have boxes of fancy donuts rather than cake.  And decorating the boxes will be a donut logo. Who do you think will design those donuts?

I’ve made these donuts so far. I will add text to them and maybe some other decorative elements.

BoardSock Empire

In my last semester of grad school, I learned how to make GIFs! The timing on this is perfect because I am working on a series of short, sock-puppet-themed movies called BoardSockEmpire. As cross promotion, I am creating these GIFs. Eventually, I will incorporate these into a scrolling cityscape, not unlike XZCD’s infinite scroll comic, though significantly smaller. In the meantime, I share with you now these GIFs.

Cuirassier’s Lion Helmet

Long time followers of this blog will know that I am a fan of fancy military helmets, particularly the Prussian Pickelhaube. I just happened upon this image, and it struck me as an opportunity to ink wash! I applied the color in photoshop.

(PS: if anyone finds a type-o in this post, my cat walked over the keyboard)
