The Barred Owl is unavailable for sale, and oh, her feathers were an interesting journey, heh.

These were all a great deal of fun to illustrate. Great Skua had one of the harder energies I've worked with for a while, but I'm not entirely surprised given what a canny predator they are.

Roe Deer was not as 'soft' (not really at all soft) compared to White-Tailed Deer (who I've illustrated twice). Obviously everyone's mileage with totems on a personal level varies, but that's my read on things.

Star Wolf sold within a couple of hours of being listed on Etsy, before I had a chance to advertise her anywhere else. And Rainbow Wolf sold within a couple of hours of being listed on Facebook.

In other news, the She Walks In Shadows anthology by Innsmouth Free Press - a Kickstarted Lovecraftian woman-only (in terms of writers/artists/editors etc.) anthology that I have a piece of artwork in, has been nominated for a 2016 World Fantasy Award. Which is pretty nifty.

All artwork is traditional art on illustration board, using ink, watercolour pencils, pencils and some metallic/iridescent/pearlescent paint for accents. :)

There's like a whole bunch I haven't posted here, and managed to put everywhere else (after Facebook/Instagram/DeviantArt/Etsy/Tumblr...sometimes I get lax about Dreamwidth. Social media is exhausting).

All of these are watercolour pencil / pencil / ink on illustration board. With some metallic and/or iridescent acrylic as highlights. Some are available for sale.


Unicorn Moon Sickle - Courtship Available

Under a cut you will also find a bilby with some Celtic knotwork, a Fiji Iguana and Dandelions, a Midnight Owl, a Dragon and a Hamerkop. Don't know what a Hamerkop is? I didn't either, until quite recently... If you already knew, that's awesome )

I've mentioned this a few times, but I am contributing some original art
to a crowdfunded book by the name of Losing Altitude,
which draws much needed attention to the plight of Endangered and Critically Endangered birds.
I am in the company of many wonderful artists, and it would be wonderful
if you could contribute to this project.
There will be hard-cover and soft-cover versions, and depending on how much you pledge
you can get one with some extra awesome goodies now.
Or you can just give a few dollars and wait for the book to come out! :)

THE LOSING ALTITUDE KICKSTARTER is HERE

Two of my pieces in the book:


Swift Parrot

I had a commission request
under one of the 'mini totems' slots.
I've recently started offering mini totem slots,
and they're small, and fun,
and also you know, vultures are AWESOME.


The Sun Sentinel - Turkey Vulture

moonvoice: (t - i'm from the future eeeooooo)
I have a fair bit of art to list,
but actually I'm waiting on a few of them.
Some need client approval to list.
Some I don't want to list here until the Kickstarter goes live.
And some I'm too lazy to list.

But this one I had to list.


From the Studio Ghibli feature animation Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea I bring you the titular character in her goldfish form:

Both of these were challenging but rewarding commission projects,
for different reasons.
In the meantime, it's a Sunday evening,
nearly 7.00pm.
No more artwork tonight (I think), just housekeeping associated with art. *g*

Now they've made their mark in the 'as totems' series.

Have a few illustrations to package this week.
Today has been a busy day. A cold day.
A day with Lindt chocolate and fresh cherries.
A day with good music, and a surprise letter from my sister.
A day of playing Pokemon Conquest and inking until my fingers hurt.

Bridget the Persian as Totem
- I don't list all the pet totems that I illustrate, but I decided to put this one up because it's my very first persian! And also, because her fur colour is among the loveliest I've ever seen. -

I have been sitting on this one for a while,
Esper is a dobermann (that's doberman in places that aren't Australia or the UK or some parts of Europe),
Esper is also the loved and loving companion of a wonderful friend of mine,
and was commissioned as a gift.
SO much fun to work on. I am starting to really love animal companion commissions.
Especially when it's an animal companion I've been seeing photos of for a while, and really love, and think is awesome.

It's cool today, and I'm listening to Sound Team,

In the meantime, we have passionfruit and tangeloes in the house.
I illustrated both of these while watching David Attenborough's
The Blue Planet, which is all kinds of awesome.
