From the Clouds
So you missed it at MICE? Have no fear, “From the Clouds” is now in stores all over the Boston area, and available on Etsy. Or get it directly from me below!
I’ll also be at Paint and Pixel in Northampton Massachusetts on October 20th. So if you are in the area swing by and get your copy signed!
It’s the story of strange visitors from another world, visitors that bring the promise of change to a society that may or may not be ready for it. The most epic tale you’re going to get in a mini.
Wide Format, each page opens to a super wide 17″.
10 Pages of strange aliens, lush landscapes, massive crowds, fierce beasts, explosions, and a kind of poetry you wouldn’t expect in a surreal sci-fi epic.
FULL COLOR! Every detail of this comic was painstakingly created with watercolor and ink.
Hey everyone! Just wanted to inform you that my new mini, From the Clouds is getting ready to go to the printers! Hurray! I’ll have it at MICE (of course!), and it should be hitting Boston comics shops and my etsy shop after that. The book is my first full color endeavor and each page was done in watercolor and ink. Here’s a sample of some of it.
I got something special for you this week. Full color whirlies! This is set of 10 whirlies in total. These are all watercolor and ink and vary in size from 3″ x 3.5″ up to 7″x 10″. All of these whirlies are for sale, and are up in my Etsy store!
Featured whirly for the set and this week The Cricket
You probably know by now, that custom built whirlies are everywhere. There is more than enough know-how out there in the world, and it seems like every other block has got a great garage with a full assortment of the necessary tools. The Cricket was built by Professor Penrose to serve as a vehicle to assist in his observational studies of cloud formations and the behavior of light in the upper atmosphere. He made sure this copter had plenty of lift, was exceptionally stable for where the atmosphere is thinnest, and had a nice big window with plenty of visibility. It’s also got just enough room to carry all the various pieces of equipment he needs to make his observations during his voyages. Of course the candy red paint job wasn’t a necessity, but it’s always better to cruise with style.
And below we’ve got the rest of this weeks whirlies. What a week, Enjoy!
Tentacles and Fruit and Love
Your wait is over. Now you can finally tell someone you love how much you care by sending them one of these cards. Nothing says I love you like tentacles and fruit. It’s like saying, “I’d be the giant octopus all over your still life with fruit.” You can get them individually or as a set. You’ve seen the art, you’ve pondered the meaning, you’ve raised your eyebrows just as high as they can go. Now share the love.
Get them on Etsy, or through me directly. Enjoy!
Above is a little animation I made showcasing an illustration I designed as a baseboard trim for a child’s room. I suppose it wouldn’t have to be a child’s room, I think it would be a lovely edition to a family room or living room or study or den or kitchen or three season room or bathroom or foyer or in the hallway or decorating your mad scientist lab. Anyway it’s available for order now through LilyTrim. Go check it out along with other great work!
And if you are curious, it’s watercolor and ink.
I watched the fabulous movie Trollhunter this weekend. If you haven’t seen this movie yet, you need to, like right now. It’s fantastic. Also it has trolls in it. I want to believe. All those trolls in the woods and the mountains brought back this awesome childhood memory- Did anyone else read this book cover to cover on a weekly basis from age 8 to age 12? There are some amazing trolls in there too.
Well, it has indeed been a while since I’ve posted new art on here, so here we have it! This is another poetry broadside I painted for Roger Hooper. When Roger presented me with this poem as a candidate for a new broadside I was super excited. I mean just read that thing! It’s so damn visceral, I love it.
So developing imagery for this one was pretty fun for me. After spending many gut churning hours looking at photo’s of tissue damage for inspiration I ended up diving a bit deeper. The Science Photo Library, proved to be an amazing source for electron microscope imagery, of so much juicy amazing stuff. I’ve always been drawn to that imagery to getting the chance to riff off it was great. And This is obviously the result. Don’t look too hard for a direct physical correlation, there isn’t one, but I’m sure you could pick out my biggest influences in a lineup there.
Oh and this is ink, and watercolors, and the text is digital.
