Water Tower, Rosie, and a Robot

I had the great pleasure to reunite with Rosie the labrador. She’s a very sweet pooch: whenever you hold her leash, she takes her end gently in her teeth to lead you to where she wants you to go. Rosie is also an avid water pooch.

I also finally got around to sketching and washing this water tower. My girlfriend and I pass this on the freeway fairly often, and it’s a very cool subject, with a lot of direct and indirect light sources. I wanted to make some trees, too, but I really didn’t want to put a lot of effort into them. My solution: blow some ink around.

And I thought I’d get back to my comfort zone and draw a Robot. It’s destroying a city for good measure.

Wrinkles!

Friends! I apologize for my lack of posts as of late: delicate adventures and I have been working a lot of conventions in the last two weeks and we were swamped. But I’m here now, and that’s what’s important.

So “wrinkles” is what I thought I wrote underneath the Pug (“morschinny” in Russian ), but apparently I didn’t make a crucial mark on the character that looks like a “W”. Shame on me for not checking, but I still like the pug.

Krampus Season!

Grüß vom Krampus! That’s German for “greetings from the Krampus!” My favorite holiday mascot is the non-denominational “Krampus,” a demon that punishes naughty children during the solstice. Originally from Austria, the Krampus has spread not only to other German speaking countries, but the world over. Thank Krampus!

To celebrate Krampus season, I have made my own Krampus design that is available for purchase at my Society6 store. What better way to ring in the holiday season than by donning the raiments of the holiday avenger?

I also show other versions of my design below the final version. Grüß vom Krampus, Freunden!

Photoshop Partaay

Photoshop is one of my passions! I love making fake pictures for some reason. I guess that falls under the category of creepy, but admitting that I have a problem is the first step towards… I don’t know, something.

Pee Wee: The real work of art

I was trying to tell people that I didn’t photoshop my head onto Czar Nicolas II’s body, but raised a lot of questions.

This might be the best thing I’ve ever done in my life.
