Mythical Male Pin-Ups: Merman & Faun

Some saucy fantasy for your walls?

This series has finally reached its halfway point! Very excited about that πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

New Year, New Goals

Happy New Year, everyone!

2016 was a handful of a year, and I let this blog die out through out with only a handful of posts and updates over the past 12 months. That’s got to change. This 2017, I’m going to try harder to actually bring updates and art work for and featuring Simply Kitts Illustrations. So, to tie off some loose ends, here’s some of the super hero teddy bears I failed to update with last year! Hoping to add even more to the teddy bear collection this year, including Hulk, Robin, Red Skull, Riddler, Spider Gwen, Jean Grey, Hulkling and Wiccan! I’ve got all these teddy bear prints available in my Etsy shop, along with some stickers and buttons. I’ve got a whole slew of midwest comic cons lined up this year and will be posting about them in the near future.

Halloween Challenge!!!! cont. again

Phew! Been a busy week, can you tell? Anyway, throwing the next few up from the art challenge I’ve been enjoying this month! Here you have Days 13 thru 15. The next set is, sadly, unfinished, but for the sake of catching up after a week of heavy overtime in the real world, they’ll be posted up shortly for you to see.

Remember, if you want to follow these little spot illustrations daily, hop on over to the Simply Kitts Tumblr and +Follow!

A few additional note… I adore my spirits in high spirits, as well as dark parties for albino rats, but this set finally stumped me on the theme “orange”. I’d already done pumpkins, and I didn’t want to draw fruit. As I sat, pondering, I realized that I really wanted orange to be awesome because it’s my current favorite color (you know artists, always finding new favorites!) I looked down at my orange sweater and realized that I would be the best option for Orange. So, viola. You got a weird little self portrait that not only showcases Simply Kitts Illustrations– But Red Rabbit Comics, too πŸ˜€ The end!

Halloween Challenge!!! cont.

Today you get four more days from the Halloween Challenge I’ve worked on this month. Day 10 is one of my favorites so far– amusing considering my intense dislike for the eight-legged demons.

Enjoy Days 09 thru 12!

Halloween Challenge!

Well, here’s a small handful of what i’ve been working on this October. I found a list of Halloween words, one for each day of the month, and have been doing my very best to keep up with it! You can follow each day on my TumblrΒ or continue to wait for me to upload them together at my leisure here on WordPress πŸ™‚

Days 01 thru 04!

INKlings from the Week

Must be another Sunday πŸ™‚

This week’s batch of INKlings has a little cheater in there (I don’t apologize!) named Frip-C. I wanted him to be flip-able from the beginning, but he turned out even cuter flipped than intended! Anyway, there will be more goofy contenders next week.
