One of my entries for ArtOrders Tiny Dragon competition! Judging is going on this month I think so I’m crossing everything I have right now. This painting was inspired by the fact that if dragons existed there would absolutely be a whole Instagram community based around their aesthetic, and also the fact that I would be one million percent invested in it.
I’m actually pretty proud of how this turned out, given how little painting I’ve gotten done this year. One of my goals for 2018 is definitely to work on my digital painting skills, and who knows – maybe I’ll actually learn to paint in Real Life with Real Paints one of these days.
As an artist, the things you see are filtered in ways that other people might find strange, and you often have a brain full of ideas in various stages of incubation. Originally created as a response on Pop My Mind.
It’s here at last! Wyrdhope officially launches today, so head over to the site HERE and check it out! The cover and first page are up today, and the comic will update once a week every Tuesday. And since comic days will now be Tuesdays, posts here on the blog will be switching to Thursdays, so this week you get two posts. I’m so generous.
If you want to know when a page is up you can follow me on all the social media, or subscribe to the comic feed on the site.
I’m so excited to finally start telling this story – though forgive me the first few pages of art, they are by this point slightly old art, but such is the case with making something like this. Ah! I’m excited! This story is so fun – in my totally unbiased opinion – so I hope you all enjoy reading it as I tell it.
A surreal, exploratory dreamscape created in response to a prompt on Pop My Mind. Please click for full size on this one, it’s far better in full view, I promise.
This was one of the biggest pieces I’ve done for a while, and I’m so glad I decided to push myself and create this as a triptych. I don’t think the story I wanted to tell would have worked in one piece on its own. This set of images draws a lot on Surrealism as well as on dream imagery, and personal symbolism relating to anxiety and stress. Which is a really fancy way of saying this is an attempt to paint a journey through dreamland.
