Hi. I'm Robin (they/them) I've come here to escape from the grim place that is Instagram. I'm super new to Mastodon so still finding my feet.

When it comes to art I have a lot of trouble sticking to one style/medium/subject, so expect to see a real mixed bag of stuff from me. πŸ˜…

Nice to meet y'all.

Been practicing some more collage + mixed media with and I gotta say I love how vibrant you can get the colours with this method. Made using paper from magazines plus acrylic paint.

I'm super excited to share this short animation I made with some friends in less than 4 days! We did an 'Animation Jam' where we all said one theme we liked and then mashed them all together to make a little film! Our themes were: Ruins + Nature + DnD. I am quite proud of what we achieved in very little time.

I was worried about this one, last time I used masking fluid it stuck to the paper and I couldn't get it off! but no problems today, the masking fluid came off nice and clean πŸ‘ so glad I didn't have to have a tantrum, it would have been so undignified.
This is 'Agapanthus' in watercolour on Arches paper.

Whenever I see ppl like, throwing their phone into a lake to show how carefree they are in movies or shows or whatever I'm like Are you serious? I'd never know anyone's number again. I'd never be able to recover passwords. I'd be locked out of every site that uses two factor auth. I dunno what size air filter I need, or anyone's birthday, or that recipe I saved a screenshot of Lol zero part of my brain is carefree

what was i assigned at birth? unrealistic expectations

Posting some art now that things have settled down! Among other things, I make digital art focused on the scale and networks of fungi, trying to represent the huge, invisible forms these organisms take beneath the soil.

For our 4 year wedding anniversary I have designed my husband a tea towel featuring us both surrounded by our favourite foods! According to my internet searches, the theme of a 4 year anniversary is linen/silk, so it's a linen-blend tea towel πŸ˜… I hope he likes it as much as I do :artcataww:

I got my order from @hootalex and it's delightful! Go and check out all his bird stuff, it's just lovely 🐦β™₯️

These pieces mark the last of the rainbow abstracts that I did back in the day. Experimentations with abstraction continued, but I began to be a little more selective with my color choices after that.

OMG That wore me out 😩 I took a "however long it takes me" approach and that was a mistake πŸ˜…. Please forgive the terrible proportions on that face, these truly are color studies and it shows πŸ˜‚ That storefront is basically an abstract at this point. I improvised some clouds on the landscape and I think it saves it. The critter turned out the best I think and took the least amount of time! These are all 2" - 3".

Last year I discovered the joy of using masking fluid with watercolour paints and in this little experiment I really went to town with it! All the lines are made by painting masking fluid, then adding a layer of watercolour, then repeat adding darker layers each time. Peeling off the masking fluid is incredibly satisfying.

I'm pretty sure I'll be working for the rest of the weekend blagh. Good part is that it's drawing! Bad part is...I just want to sleep imsotired

Old art of my oc Saffron, preparing for work too

Some more art, this time featuring a big old toad guy!

Also included some process shots, because I enjoyed building this picture up. At least, that's how I remember it now. I'm sure at the time the tap-tap-tap of all that tap-tap-tap pointillism would have driven me to tap-tap-tap despair!

Who likes octopuseseseses? I love octoporsess! ococtopurpes?

Here's an erktappurse I drew on , and some sketchy stops I made on the road to Octopusville.
