Little Annie Oakley

A warm-up that's basically amounted to me playing with brooshes in Photoshoop. Broosha-broosh!  St. Vincent's knack for contained chaos has always blown me away: she wields that guitar like it's a goddamn weapon. 

More to come, soon. More stuff that's blended with traditional mediums...I promise that I'm not just going to use this blog to document my wince-worthily inept forays into wrapping my head around digital illustration, haha.

Sociopathic Space Gnomes

Quite possibly the best drawing I will ever make, in my entire life? Yes. These are the characters I and my friend Rez made, respectively, for my roommate Jabari's fantasy/space-opera/metaphysical mindfuck of a homebrew, called Lucid. Quiblyn and her little brother, Mongrel are both Jovys, which are basically space gnomes in the world of the game...except where Joyvs are usually cautious arcane tinkers, Quiblyn and Mongrel are like two loose cannons. She's a maverick weapons engineer, whereas he's the muscle who tests her heretical creations in the field. (She's currently working on smithing a sort've proto-tommy gun in a world where any firearms technology hasn't really surpassed flintlock pistols yet.) They're less than four feet high, but they're kind've unabashedly a pair of sociopaths. With cockney accents.

Some loosey-goosey sketches of the character I made for a tabletop RPG my friends and I are playing in. (It's my friend Rez's homebrew, Creep, which is ten kinds of rad.)

Gren is a professional art thief, bent on taking full advantage of the war-torn age our campaign is set in. (He met up with the rest of the party after looting a manor abandoned by its aristocratic inhabitants before their town was lain siege to.) He's also a contortionist, which helps him get out of some pretty tight spots while thieving, or running away from adversaries. I was excited for the challenge of  making a character who was definitely not proficient on a battlefield--my last Creep character was a brawler.

Street Portraits

So I saw this guy hanging around a few doors down from the cafe I was headed towards, so I decided to make a quick drawing. He was all slouchy and languid, and looked sort've like Mugen from Samurai Champloo. (Not really.) 

In other news, Baltimore is melting. Thought y'all ought to know.

Slow Progress

Comickiiiiiiiiing! So hey, dudes. This is what I've been working on....more to come rather soon, once it's officially finished. I wish I could work on it and all the stuff bouncing around in my frizzled headspace all the time....some day, my friends. Some day.
