I had to shift gears from inktober to work on a bigger project but I’m really excited about it and how the painting is turning out so far. It is SO nice to paint something on a larger scale. It’s been so long!
Anchor design sketch for promo piece, take 2. This one has a much better layout and is more interesting conceptually. Pulp illustrations are grandest when their ideas are conceptual. That is true for other kinds of illustrations too, of course. But there was something way-out-there about pulp art. People still love that about it and I'm doing my damnedest to learn how to do it. It's fun! Creativity is the most awesome fun of all. 😊😊🎆🌠🖍🖋📝🖊 #illustratorsoninstagram #illustratorsofinstagram #bookartist #pulpartist #independentartist #independentauthor
“Lakeside, 1939” those are the words scrawled in thin cursive on the back of the photo you found tucked between the pages of an old book. I wonder if they were celebrating a holiday, or maybe went down to the lake for the day. Either way, they look like they had a great time❣️ The original and prints of this painting are available now in my Etsy shop! With free shipping! Link in the bio to shop!

12 x 9 in digital, 2018.
My influences are starting to filter in to my work more strongly now. More pieces of the jigsaw fell into place on this one, with (hopefully) hints starting to show of the likes of Mead Schaeffer, Walter Baumhofer, Norman Saunders, Robert Maguire and Rudolph Belarski - all of which I'm studying in heavy rotation, along with many others.
I'm edging closer to being able to capture at least some of the flavour of that luscious, creamy, slippy, blobby painting technique that Mead Schaeffer did so well. I'll never get a million miles near what Schaeffer was capable of, but I can at least try.

I’ve been working on a new commission and it’s really cool. I thought I’d record a video of me working on it. It’s a Ballpoint pen portrait with gouache for the blood. 🧛🏻♀️ Follow me and turn on post notifications so you don't miss out on any of my posts this month!

I can finally share my painting of Fox Mulder! Im so excited with how this came out, with the limited colorized photo look. A lot of illustrators like Mead Schaeffer and Tom Lovell used that technique back in the day and I love it so much. Prints are already available in my etsy shop! The link is in the bio to pick up one for yourself!

Dangerously close to finishing up Spooky Mulder! I am really enjoying this limited color pallet I am experimenting with here. The plan is to already do a similar one for my next painting of Scully but I have a feeling I am going to be exploring this a lot more in the future ❣️ In the meantime, don’t forget about my etsy store! I have tons of prints and some originals for sale ✨
