152 - school supplies

this month's illustration prompt was 'school supplies', so i decided to go with this little girl who thinks gender roles are dumb and is going to like wearing pink dresses and spider-man because she can.

150 - double double toil and trouble

part of my absence from blog posting can be blamed on teen wolf's second season starting up in june. i was obsessed with season one, and it just got even better this time around.

it's also responsible for somehow getting me a constantly growing following over on tumblr, which in turn is responsible for getting me the commissions that have been helping me to pay my student loan this month. so thanks, teen wolf. have one tiny piece of the huge amount of fanart i've been doing.

149 - spiders

some of my friends from pratt had been talking bout doing different illustration prompts and last week they gave me the word 'spider.'

now, because i have been doing my own personal project (and will post about it when it's done) and commission work to get money to pay my student loans, i put the spider off til the last minute and don't have a big fancy illustration to show.

but i do have this cute little doodle of a peacock spider.

148 - winter is coming

i've been wanting to do drawings of all the stark (+jon snow) kids with their dire wolves for a while, and the other day, the idea for these portraits came to me. i won't go into too many details about why each of them is pictured the way they are because i don't want to spoil anything for people who are only watching the show and not reading the books.

147 - growing strong

i made this really quickly to be part of a photoset on tumblr, but i ended up liking it, so i made a larger version to use as my cover photo on facebook. 

my favourite house in the a song of ice and fire series is house tyrell - their words are 'growing strong' and their sigil is a golden rose on a green field. the photo actually came from a nice, hd video of the brooklyn botanical gardens.

i did some pro-bono design work for the dj project human effort about a week or so ago. be sure to check out their mixes because they're pretty great.

145 - doodles

144 - the red viper

i'm getting to the end of a storm of swords, third book in the a song of ice and fire series. oberyn martell was a really great character and i wish we could have seen more of him before he met his unfortunate end. but what a great scene it was, though.

143 - pokemon

i've been wanting to do more and more lineless work since i discovered this photoshop brush, and i think i've finally found the method that works best for me.

for some reason, i decided to do some pokemon to test it out. i didn't mean for them all to be purple.

142 - typography

i downloaded a bunch of new fonts a while ago and didn't really get to play with them yet, and i've wanted to do something with these guillemots lyrics for a while. stock photo from here.

141 - doodles

another massive doodle post of stuff i've been doing lately. some fanart, some original characters, some appropriation of semi-famous faces into shakespearian characters. same old same old.
