The Magician & The Red Rabbit

MagicianRabbit

One of my most recent gifts for my friend over at Mythic Skies Art. It was a fun experiment, lost of things learned and played with– And he seemed to enjoy it. Onto my Christmas gifts, now!

Halloween Challenge!! cont.

Today I bring you four more days of the Halloween Challenge I accepted for the month of October. There’s been some very interesting and very fun imagery to come out of this series… Day 5 was just too hard to resist.

If you want to follow these little guys day-to-day, please +Follow my Tumblr.

Enjoy Days 05 thru 08!

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 Tumblr or continue to wait for me to upload them together at my leisure here on WordPress 🙂

Days 01 thru 04!

A New Sketchbook (To be Sold!)

One of the various ongoing projects of mine, a new sketchbook cover. The nice thing about the Moleskin cashiers journals, besides being able to choose from blank, lined or graph paper– or its nice size– is that the brown of the cover makes the perfect middle ground so both white and black inks really get a chance to shine together.

Eventually, once I figure out an avenue for it other than Etsy.com (It’s become a bit of a monster…), this and the other notebooks I’ve been working on will be going up for sale. With any luck, I’ll also be getting a variety of my cards up as well, so you can cover any holiday in style!

Exploring with INKlings

It’s been awhile since I’ve done much of anything with these guys, and now that I’ve opened an online shop-type-things (at RedBubble.com) I realized that some of these cuties would make awesome stickers and such. So… Here they are all colored and played with. I’m planning to continue working with a selection of the others with a similar intent in mind. This little project of mine has also rekindled my desire to continue working on my INKling sketches. Those will be making an appearance here in a short while!

See? Still Doing Things and Stuff!

Just a little example of some of the work I’ve finished in recent history. I’ll have more work up soon including my latest promotional piece, “Ichabod”.

Something Exciting and New

Like every artist, I have a variety of projects I’ve been working on as of late. Three different book projects, plus a comic book/webcomic and an illustrated quilt. I don’t have much time to work on any one for very long, but I wanted to toss a few little snippets up here to kind of show everyone that I’ve been working hard and am, of coarse, still trying to work my way into the world.

The first four snapshots are of a pair of posters I’ve been working over for my webcomic, Tricks, Twins & Thieves, to get the ball rolling on possible merchandising material for the future. Each original drawing is 11×17 inches, and they will be colored eventually! The bottom two shots are little illustrations for a poem/book “This Is A Poem For You”. It’s a personal venture and will be kept between me and the one who wrote it (most likely) but I’m putting a fair bit of effort into it and look forward to showing it to everyone else once it’s complete!

Another Set of INKlings!

You can tell my focus as wandered a little bit, but that’s the point of this exercise, right? I’m just relieved to have at least a little bit of art in each day! ❤ (Except for the one’s I miss– Shhh!)

Enjoy!

A Bit Forgetful

I’m sorry, guys, I really don’t mean to forget about posting things on my blog! So many medias to put publish work on these days, what with Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram and my Website itself (simplykitts.com), I get a little distracted. Thank God I don’t have a twitter yet! Ugh…

Anyway, I’ve started a new project called “INKlings” in a cute little sketchbook (7 x 7 inches) to help promote a little bit of creativity in my every day life– which is quite hectic and, sadly, miserable at the moment. But this fun little project is geared to keep the juices flowing and have at least a little tiny piece of art daily. I’ve already missed a few days, but I’m working hard to keep it going, so I hope you’ll enjoy it along with me. I’m working to get in the practice of updating a daily image on my art Facebook and Tumblr, while here I’m going to do my very best to update once a week with all the strange, nonsensical things that were “arted” throughout the week! I’ll be doing one a day, at least (sometimes more?) and the goal is to use ink and brush only and keep the miniature illustrations to a sitting. No long, extravagant something, just quick, whimsical and fun curiosities.

SO! Here’s the first batch– I hope you’ll treat them kindly! ❤
