Finally finished 'Thorn', my biggest so far: Very pleased with the shadows and with the way it changes when looked at from different angles.

First stab at a poster with a second group of creatures.
These will be on show next weekend at my home in the Netherlands

But no matter how many lightyears separate artist from canvas, it's still your intent which crafts a desolate dustball into a vibrant world. It's still your will which tempers the solar winds and guards the nascent atmosphere from the excesses of the void.

And when your transport arrives after all those months of nearlight travel, and the warmth of the attentuated sunset rests upon your brow, you'll see your work and know that it is good.

(3/3)

Woohoo! An album I illustrated is finally in my hot little hands and I can share the work I did for it! It's dropping on July 15. It's the 2nd of a trilogy. All three covers fit together visually and thematically. I got to do interior art, too.

I'm celebrating because this is only the second legit paying gig I've ever had beyond selling my own stuff on my own. And my heart is honestly stoked. Small victories!

As a hobbyist developer and professional system administrator who uses Git version control, I empathize with "Git is simply too hard". If I screw up my repo, I just nuke it and reclone. The fancy-pants theoretical subcommands are way beyond me.

A inspired by way too many hours spent in virtual meetings. Name: Webex

A more humanoid figure this time. A girl. Fussing with the hair, so that settled it.
Please enjoy and let me know what you see

No sale de su asombro. No entiende que dejase los pinceles por él, sabiendo que le sobraba talento para . Susan Macdowell, lejos de reproches, le brindó este espléndido retrato póstumo y se dedicó a atesorar su legado para preservarlo del olvido. @philamuseum

Planning for a larger acrylic painting. This is a sketch, a plan of what I’m going to do, and it is a good way of getting the values right in your head before you start. Because it is acrylic and I can go lighter later, I can start as dark as I like then turn the lights on later.

Old work but feels proper to post this considering everything going on. This was originally for Suicide Prevention Week.
