"Ein gutes, cooles Leben ist die beste Rache" translates roughly to "a good, cool life is the best revenge" and is a line from a lovely song by Markus Wiebusch. Just some fun typography on a lazy Sunday.

Your art is an inspiration to me. I really love it!

Ahhhh that is so sweet of you and completely made my day, thank you so much! ;__;

Orca in space! Cliche, but super fun to draw. (I enjoy drawing nebulae way too much.) Tried to go for a watery feel with the color scheme. Corel Painter X, Wacom Intuos 3 tablet.

Two days after I found out, I’m still in shock — I just got offered my dream job that I’ve been working towards for years! I can’t get into the details due to privacy reasons, but what I can say is that it’s in the realm of international politics, it’s partially art-related, and my supervisor is giving me a crazy amount of artistic liberty so this will be so much fun. It also gives me an excuse to work on personal art more, so expect plenty of that soon. Ahhh sorry for the text post, I’m just way too excited about this! Celebratory drawing coming up.

Old, old art from back in 2008/9, and one of my first landscapes. It’s pretty painful to look at —there’s no perspective/depth/logic to speak of—  but reminds me that I have indeed improved in the last half decade!

Just got back from an awesome trip visiting friends and saw that I somehow gained a bunch of new followers. Hello, everyone! Have a messy sketch I doodled to help me unwind.

Got hurt by a close friend of mine this past couple days. A while ago something really similar happened with someone else; I was pretty frustrated with him, so I drew an angry sea serpent snapping at a sailor (which the first friend was) to vent. This more recent guy was not a sailor, but the frustration is the same, and I realized I hadn’t uploaded this yet. Something cathartic about drawing waves.

Field Sketch - Sea Lion. Tried to make it look like a quick sketch a traveling biologist might make after encountering a strange creature.

WIP of a lion — another entry in my field sketch series. Should be done within a week or so!
