Adventures With an Overly Exuberant Underbed Monster

I imagine this is what happens when one allows their dust bunnies to grow a little too large. I had a hankering to do some illustration work, and this is what came out of it. May end up turning this one into a proper story (the mind tends to wander when absorbed in a painting, and  [ Read More ]

Shore of the Cosmic Ocean

“The surface of the Earth is the shore of the cosmic ocean. On this shore, we’ve learned most of what we know. Recently, we’ve waded a little way out, maybe ankle-deep, and the water seems inviting. Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return, and we can,  [ Read More ]

Ocho Cinco

My brother has the most ridiculous dog — a Boston terrier/pug mix (‘bug’) with a crooked tail that answers to Ocho.  His tongue is literally too large to fit inside of his mouth, and tends to get coated in dirt, leaves, hair, or whatever else he’s been rooting in.  He’ll eat anything small enough to  [ Read More ]

Boogie Down

With Sunday as grey, drab and drizzly as it was, I really didn’t feel like leaving the apartment.  Instead, I queued up a few favourite movies and spent the afternoon noodling around on my tablet.

Lammergriffin

Another griffin.  African species this time — Lammergeier meets “King” Cheetah.  She’s considerably more athletic looking than my Canadian species.  This one’s a workup of one of my Sketchuary sketches. Done in Manga Studio.
