Hope everyone had a happy holiday season! (This was my Christmas, and this was my New Year's Eve. The geekery is strong with this one.) When I was little, I made “pet rocks.” (If I noticed a uniquely shaped rock, I'd clean it, then paint it into whatever animal it reminded me of.) ...

So far, the drawing requests I've had the most fun fulfilling include cartoon versions of these sculptures interacting with one another and thinking up non-traditional superheroes for a baby room. Stay tuned for more scans and/or photos. For now, keep those commissions coming!

As previously implied, I'm a big Bowie fan. And that's an understatement. Like, I'm not much of a jewelry person, but I wore a Ziggy Stardust/Aladdin Sane necklace every. single. day from 2010-2012 (until I accidentally broke it—pictured further down in this post is the pendant); I have a Goblin ...
