Mythical Male Pin-Ups: Merman & Faun

Some saucy fantasy for your walls?

This series has finally reached its halfway point! Very excited about that 🙂 I started this mythical creature pin-up set almost a year ago now, with the idea of taking 4 mythical beasts (merman, faun/satyr, faerie, and centaur/unicorn) and putting them into pin-up styled masterpieces.

Finally, the first two of the 4-piece set are ready for public appearance. Each piece was originally drawn in ink on a roughly 16×26 inch piece of heavy weight paper stock, then finished in Photoshop to make them stand out while also complimenting each other.

The next two will be done this year, though I can’t guess when. I’m very excited to get to the unicorn centaur (yeah, you read that right!) though I think I might save him for last. Like a pretty little reward for getting the other three finished!

I’m delighted to hear what you think! I’ll have them up in my etsy shop before long, so please stay tuned! You can also message me through my website (www.SimplyKitts.com) if you’d like to order one or both directly 🙂

Star Wars Elephants: Wookie Mammoth

WookieMammoth

How could I resist?!

This is the newest addition to my Star Wars Elephant mini-series: The Wookie Mammoth! As a Chewbacca fan, I really couldn’t say no when the idea hit me upside the head. He took several different name changes, but now that he’s painted and finished, one of them has stuck. 🙂

This piece is originally 8.5 x 11 inches in size, painted in watercolors on vellum bristol paper stock, and is, at this point in time, available for purchase!

Hope you enjoy! I’ll post about him and his compatriots again once I have them up in my Etsy Shop!

Comic Book Bear: Hawkeye (Video!)

Yep, I finished a new video! This one here is of the process (drawing and inking) for my Hawkeye teddy bear, one of the newest additions to my Comic Book Bear Series.

Very excited to finish this bear up and add it to my official line up!!

Visioncon 2017

What a fun convention!! This was my very first year attending Visioncon, hosted down in Branson, MO, and before leaving I absolutely had to pre-register for a table for next year. The people were very nice and pleasant, the event itself had lots to do and see, and there was so much to do in Branson, even being the off season! For anyone who doesn’t know, Branson is where Silver Dollar City is, so it’s closed for the winter and the town is kind of on vacation for the same period of time. Still tons to do and see, which I didn’t do or see because conventions still exhaust me. Oh well, gives me an excuse to go back!

For the first time ever, I opened commissions at my booth during the event, which was fun and absolutely something I’ll be doing again. It never ceases to amaze me just how creative people are. I had a bunch of unique requests, so take a look through the images below and see for yourself!

I also learned about a couple other conventions being hosted around that area that I’m going to see about looking into. 🙂

Comic Book Teddy Bear: Robin & Wiccan

 

Still working away at these Comic Book Teddy Bears. I had a handful of them drawn for my last convention in August (Robin was one of those) but I couldn’t resist finishing up this darling Wiccan bear before all the others! Excited to have these guys finished and ready for printing. With any luck, I’ll be able to get one or two more done before this weekend– I’d really love to finished Speed. 🙂

I don’t know who’s next (either Hulk or Speed!), but I will be streaming the drawing of some more comic book bears Tuesday at 1pm Central Time on my Twitch Creative Channel so come check it out if you’re online! I’ll even be taking requests while I’m on.

Note: I’ll have this little cute along with all it’s companion mini-prints available at Visioncon next weekend!
