Me n’ My Roommates as Drinks. Pen drawings, photoshop color.
So Ananth and Lela and Evan and myself went to a restaurant that served non-alcoholic cocktails last week and it was noted that Ananth and I serendipitously ordered drinks that described us, haha. Ananth got a virgin Dark and Stormy (Dark and Calm) and I got a virgin Salty Dog (Salty Cat.) So then I drew us as our drinks and Lela as her favorite drink and Evan (who does not like cocktails) as his.
AND HEY, YOU CAN MEET ALL OF US THIS WEEKEND AT SPX!! Evan and Lela will be at F-11 and Ananth and I will be at F-14!
The Benign Kingdom Spring 2012 Ruler was Andrew Duff! He’s a lovely guy and I’ve worked with him in the past — he’s one of the masterminds behind Printsess.com, HeyChickadee.com, and Pusheen the cat. Instead of doing a portrait of just him, I decided to do him, Claire, Stormy, Carmen, and Pusheen together as the Benign Royal Family. You’re the best, Andrew!
Cecilia and Death portraits. Digitally colored ink and marker drawings.
I actually did these drawings back in 2010 as sketchbook drawings, but Ananth and I liked them so much that they got colored for the Benign Kingdom book.
Gosh, so many people have been asking for the continuation of Girl with the Skeleton Hand, and I want so badly to get on their next story! Ananth already has it written and everything! But there’s so much on my plate as it is and I am such a painfully slow artist. :| (But there will be more, I promise!)
