I’m not much in the habit of doing fan art any more, but every now and then I just can’t help myself. I’ve been wanting to do Captain Marvel since she was redesigned, but I never really got to it — until a friend designed a hipster variant that she’s crocheted for a pretty amazing piece of cosplay. I guess I wanted to celebrate her and her amazing craft more than anything else, so how could I resist?

Friends of mine have teenage daughters and sometimes those girls ask me to draw things. If nothing else it keeps me up-to-date on what’s popular out there. (Otherwise I’d never leave my little hole, I’m rather certain.)
I promised to draw Nora Valkyrie — a character from a web series titled RWBY — for one of my friend’s daughters if she got caught up on a comic project she’s doing for school.

Back in November I had an opportunity to show some small paintings at a coffee shop here in town. I was fortunate to share the show with a dear friend of mine. I honestly can’t remember how we both wound up doing super hero pieces (I think it just wound up that way) but in the end I did twelve small watercolors — six from the Marvel universe and six from the DC universe.
It only recently occurred to me that I still need to post them to the blog. Mystique will get the ball rolling for us…

A friend was having trouble with some inking materials, so I did some troubleshooting on my own to see if I could replicate the issues he was having. Now, I don’t normally ink my girls — there’s no real good reason, I just don’t do it. I think it might go away my natural tendencies towards drawing, but I’m kind of liking the experience.
Also, there’s this weird thing that happens when my friends and I go out: invariably someone will say something ridiculous, and then it’s just a matter of time before someone draws that ridiculous thing.
That being said, I’d like to introduce you to Knopka. She’s a go-go-dancing space-cowboy pirate. You heard me.
For various reasons I’ve had to draw Wonder Woman a number of times over the years, but I have to say, I think this may be one of my favorites. Actually, I think this may be one of my favorite drawings anyway. It’s nothing particularly special, but there are just a few small things that I’m really pleased with. At any rate, I dug it out of the archives because I realized I hadn’t shared it with you good folks.
Man! Talk about one from the archives! This is one of the first pieces I did once upon a time. I thought I had lost this little wonder but I unearthed it while digging through files deep in my hard drive. You can see how certain parts of the style have evolved over the past few years. Moving on…
A friend suggested I draw her as a Cthulu-riddled she-beast and I really couldn’t pass it up. I mean, who could, really?
Back in October (wow, I’m really keeping current aren’t I?) my mom celebrated her birthday, so I decided to draw her a picture. What did I draw? Was it a sensitive portrait? Was it a luscious landscape? Was it a beautiful and touching reminder of our beloved family pet? Nope. I drew Pinhead. From Hellraiser. Because that’s how we roll.
P.S. She loved it. And how could she not? Look at how adorable this terrifying hell spawn is.
Back during Halloween I came across what was probably the best costume I’ve ever seen. I think costumes tend to go a little too adult or a little too gruesome, so this was such a breath of fresh air. She’s a kid on the first day of first grade and her parents let her dress herself. It was so adorable. It was heart melting. I had to share it with you good folks sooner or later.
Younglings and Padawans have to find some way to entertain themselves until their skills fully develop I suppose.
I’ve been spending time at a local coffee shop when I have time in the mornings. The barista there is kinda cute, so I couldn’t stop myself from doing a drawing of her the other morning to break in my new sketchbook. Then I brought it home and decided to try something other than my normal digital painting; I pulled out and dusted off my markers and started having some fun. I think more of these are in store for the days to come.
