Heh, been a little while since I’ve shared anything here, huh. Been a wild and weird and utterly perplexing year! I’ve been poking away at stuff as per usual, seeing what neat and interesting things I can come up with. Probably better to show than tell, so, here ya go:
Oh, and [CN: Eyeballs] in case you don’t like eyeballs or have trypophobia
This is pretty much what I’ve had going on besides a bunch of rather time-consuming life things: digitally coloring my ink sketches. I’m amazed that my 4yr old license of Clip Studio Paint, that I never used, still works. Did a bunch of messy doodles that lead up to these, but I might share them later.
I was inspired to mix things up when a friend asked me if I’d be interested in doing a t-shirt design for them (which… I still gotta work out more of lol, adding characters is a challenge I’m still working to achieve).
I realized that watercolors don’t print on shirts well, so I figured hey I gotta color it digitally. So I started poking at that. Then I realized they wanted characters, so I started figuring out a style and process for those. You can see an example of how one I tried out looks in the slideshow above.
Also… castles. So I started poking at architecture. Of course, the architecture in my sketches above is in a very expressive and simple style. It’s fun to draw and pleases my eyes, so I keep at it.
There’s also a bunch of neat robots and stuff I’ve drawn, one of which is in the last slide above. Oddball robots are awesome. It’s been a lot of going down the rabbit hole and seeing what neat idea I can mess around with as it holds my interest.
So… yeah. That’s some of what I’ve been up to. Did you know I have a print shop now? Hell yeah I do. That’s another nice bonus of my process: I can turn a small ink sketch into a digital format, add color, and it scales up from 4×6″ sketches to a full 12×17″ print that you can put on your wall! They look good.

Anyway, that’s all for now! Y’all have a safe autumn and winter.
