Oilslicks 004 – Cephalotus, stage 1

A few shots of my current workstation, which happens to be the kitchen table + dropcloth. We do have a workroom, but the light in here is better, plus – movies! I’m in the process of painting two pieces for Chet Zar’s “Conjoined” show, opening January 21st at Copro Nason gallery, and they’re decidedly NSFW. I’ll reveal the full pieces when they’re done, and will be posting progress shots throughout the process. This here is a glimpse of a mutating …

Photo Flurry 079 – Excited State of Overstimulation

Over the past month I’ve been busy working on D4RT and trying to keep up with commissions, so it’s been a challenge to stay on track with my streamlined routine – I can’t say that there haven’t been days of slipping into the over-caffeinated, under-hydrated work mode, but I’m adapting and managing to squeeze some life and fun in between all that work. Let’s play a game of breakneck catch-up, shall we? THIS WEEK On Monday, Cris and I went out to the …

Inkdrops 021 – Tattoo Commission: Spooky Mermaid

Just about done with a piece for a UK client, who asked for a spoooky mermaid. She’s going to reside on the right side of the client’s torso. This was fun to work on; I hadn’t drawn a mermaid –subject of countless childhood sketches– in ages. I wanted to create something a little different from the countless existing interpretations of the subject, so research was a big part of this process. This piece by Waterhouse and this one by Harry …

Inkdrops 020 – Tattoo Commission: Tentacle Villainess

Just finished this up yesterday and am fairly pleased with it. A peek into my tattoo design process: it’s going on the client’s upper arm, so I requested a photo of the exact area and created a digital mockup before drawing anything – the idea here is that the piece will cover most of the upper arm and the legs and filigree will wrap around a bit. The mockup is too hideous to show you, though. Below are two possible …

Oilslicks 003 – Les Fleurs du Mal

Through some monstrous force of will [and at the expense of things that would have probably made me money] I managed to put another 4 hours into this painting. I would say it’s almost at the halfway point., with no more than 20 more hours to go. A part of me hates showing work in progress, but another part loves the process too much not to share, so – here she it, Cyprepedium Lingua. Oil on wood, the first in …

Mixed Sack of Wonders

Writing from the heart of the storm, where the dust is swirlin’ and is shows no sign of settling. At least I have new wood-framed glasses from Spex Club, which I dig for light eyebrows days. IPHONE CASES My iPhone cases are coming. I can’t show them to you yet, but these are the featured designs, though they won’t be released at once. TRAVEL Still catching up on freelance while attempting to plan my trip to Europe. It’s a quick …

Sketch by Cameron Stewart

This is all kinds of great: a drawing by Eisner-winning artist Cameron Stewart, who was kind enough to send me the hi res [on advice of Ales at NYCC]. It’s based on this photo of me by Allan Amato from a couple of years back. Love! You can see more of Cameron’s stuff here: http://cameronstewart.blogspot.com/

Inkdrops 010 – Coilhouse 05 Section Headers

Coilhouse 05 will hit stores in just under two weeks, but signed copies with special inserts are already 3/4 gone from our web shop. You can see a comprehensive by-article assessment of the issue here. From the post: Zoetica imagined a blithe, enchanted world of dancing sheiks and courtesans when working on this issue’s Inform/Inspire/Infect section headers. Powdered wigs and perfect maquillage complement tassels and cymbals, as these bejeweled vixens shimmy you into each section. The headers also feature the …
