rupine asked: hello! what conventions are you going to this year? i'd love to see you at c2e2 and pick up some of your work there!
There may be others, but this is my confirmed schedule!
pippinforthewin asked: I'm sure you've been asked this a lot, but I'm dying to buy a watercolor Ainulindalë book. Are you planning on printing it? Or are you printing it currently? The whole chapter was incredible, and I'd love to buy a copy.
Soon! Maybe. I’m trying to line up a good way to print enough copies to keep up with demand. With convention season coming up, I’m probably going to start with a run of about 350 and see where that gets me. Printing is hard, you guys.
Hey, my Society6 page is having a really great sale right now. You get free shipping PLUS $5 off all prints! I took the opportunity to add a bunch of new pieces for you to get your mitts on. So go buy some prints and help me pay for my new apartment.

dumplingheart asked: Hi, we met at SPX last year, and you showed me a fountain-pen (I think) you used for the illustration with the girl standing in front of a cave with a lot of foliage, and I've recently been trying to figure out what pen it was to no avail! Any chance you know what I'm talking about? Sorry I know this is rather vague haha.
Oh, good question! That would be the Kuretake Zig Letter Pen. It makes a line somewhere between a brush and a G-Nib, so its really nice for sketching. The bonus is that its super duper cheap and customizable. The body comes in like a thousand colors and there are a bunch of different types of refills, but you have to buy everything individually.
I made this piece to test it out when I first got it. I immediately realized that the ink is about the exact opposite of water safe, so don’t use it if you’re a fan of wet media like me. So to color this, I light tabled watercolor onto a separate sheet. The result was some of the loosest colors I’ve ever done which is pretty far away from my usual style.
Of all the things I’m working on right now:
- Development property for Cartoon Network
- Children’s book illustration
- Additional animated property pitch
I can’t show you any of it. But I CAN show you this photo of this charming little Lego kabob food truck that I created last night. It even has a little spinning meat inside of it.
I designed some widdle twoublemaker robots for work: P33-P, Missile Face, & Lashmashtar-Z.
For V-day, I drew fan art of my rad girlfriend, Leigh's cute-ass characters from her new web comic on Go Comics, Clementine Fox. You should all go read/subscribe (you need an account, but its free) because it is cute as heck and from what I understand, the story is epic.

So instead, here’s a picture of a stomped Goomba to say thanks to all y’all.
Here’s the final version of my Metal Gear Solid 3 illustration, The End. One of the most unique and memorable boss fights I’ve ever played. Did you play it the long way, crawling through the jungle, living off snake meat for days? Did you just wait a week for him to die of old age? Did you take the cheap shot and kill him while he was in the wheel chair on the pier? You know who you are.
