Matt the Viking

One day, Matt, my boyfriend, sees me looking at character designs online and says, "why don't you draw me a bad ass character for me to use as my avatar?"

Challenge accepted.

The writing says "Matt" in dwarven runes (according to Matt). Whatta nerd! Trying out a more painterly style with this one...I like it, but I definitely think I could use more practice!

My dad is a huge rockhound and a big fan of fossils. My favorites have always been trilobites...I like how they look like bigger prehistoric versions of pill bugs!

For Christmas this year, I decided to draw my dad a picture of a trilobite to hang in his new home office.

Family Portraits

In the past few months, I have created a couple of "family portraits" for family and friends as gifts and I thought that I would share them with you all!

It all started with the portrait of my immediate family that I did for my mom for her birthday:

After that, I did a couple of couples (see what I did there?!). The first is my cousin and his wife (I gave it to them as a wedding gift), the second I did for a friend's birthday of her and her fiancee.

After my cousin, Amanda, saw the portrait of my family and of our cousin and his wife, she commissioned me to do one of her whole family for Christmas! I was a bit worried about this one because of the amount of people, but I think it turned out splendidly!

I am still considering doing these on a commissions basis, but it makes it a lot easier when you know the people you are drawing! However, if you are interested, contact me and I can let you know prices and such.

Overdue Christmas Card!

Why am I posting a Christmas Card in February? Well, I just realized that I totally forgot to post it on my blog! I got lots of compliments on it...had it printed by and they looked BEAUTIFUL! Highly recommend them for your printing needs!

I also did a poster for our work christmas party, which I thought turned out pretty cute, so might as well post that here too while we are on the topic!
