Dungeon Crew tee design.

Ananth and I designed this tee in a fit of wanting a sports raglan with a D&D theme.  You can get it over here at our Topatoco shop!

Nostalgia Monday: Krehs Dragons, 1997.  (age 11)

Last night I stumbled upon a giant cache of my old artwork in a series of hidden folders.  These guys were pretty much my earliest characters; I’d just seen Star Wars in its entirety for the first time and thought the aliens were pretty much the coolest things.  Already bein’ way into dragons, I designed these mammilian pseudo-dragons and proceeded to become obsessed with them until that obsession was replaced by Pokémon in 1998/99.

I recall drawing a chunk of these on a Saturday while watching Hercules and Xena in the basement.

100 Dragons and a Knight, 1999?  Nostalgia Monday.
I found this monstrous thing underneath my old bed at my parents’ house!  The paper was easily two or three feet wide, so it had to be photographed.  I’m still very fond of the sirrush in the upper left corner.
Guys.  Guys, I really liked dragons as a kid.  I still do but far less consumingly so

Snap Dragon, 1999.  graphite and watercolor pencils.  Nostalgia Monday.
Haven’t done a Nostalgia Monday in a bit!  This one’s from 1999, I was 13 or 14— a dragon based on a snap dragon flower.  This drawing would be really fun to revisit, maybe I will when things aren’t so hectic!
Speaking of hectic!  I’m going to be in Japan from the 15th to the 25th, so there won’t be much in the way of updates while I’m gone.  (and will be attending MoCCA and TCAF immediately after returning, but that’s a different story)  I’ll try to put some stuff in the queue, and hopefully there will be enough Exquisite Beasts to fill the interim.

Bird Dragon. 1999.  Nostalgia Monday.
I remember drawing this in a hotel room while staying in Atlantic City with my mom for a teaching conference.  It’s admittedly pretty neat to see what difference a year makes!
Well, uh, yeah, and then there’s the coloring.  Listen, I was taking a class at the local community college to learn how to use Photoshop 5 and I thought that “render clouds” was the coolest thing.  You gotta cut me some slack, I was 13 or 14.

Hidden Dragon.  1998.  Nostalgia Monday.
Sorry, I forgot about Nostalgia Monday for a few weeks there.  Here’s the followup from a month after this picture.  This was the first piece of art I ever put on the internet.
I still couldn’t entirely grasp the anatomy (wow, check out all those joints), but it’s kinda crazy seeing the jump in understanding between the last picture and this one.  Good job, 12-year-old me.
Over the holiday I stumbled across my old 486 backup!  I’d forgotten how much pokémon fanart I drew in my early teens. 8|

Happy New Year 2012.  johnny wander comic.
An excuse to draw a dragon?  For me?  Oh 2012, you shouldn’t have.

Dragon Battle.  1998.  Nostalgia Monday.
So remember that part where I mentioned studying the anatomy of wings?  Apparently all that was forgotten pretty quickly.  To my 12-year-old credit, I don’t think I actually understood the underlying skeletal anatomy and was trying to emulate the profile of a wing-shape.  No comment on those bizarre legs.
Anyway, dragons are the coolest.

Dargon doodles.  Felt pen doodles from a tiny notebook.
Sometimes when I am bored or waiting for someone I will freehand a doofy dragon in this tiny notebook that lives in my bag.  Here is a compilation of some of them.
