Un-Indigenous. Plants and creatures. One of my favorite things in life is growing things on my deck-top garden, so of course I like to bleed this love into some of my fictional creatures.
I’ve been sick a lot this month. But more than being sick of being sick, I’m sick of winter and am sincerely looking forward to green things and spring.
PS This one took A LOOOOONGGGG time to color for some reason.
While digging around in a pile of paper in my studio I rediscovered this page from an unused Lere comic (about a year old). It doesn’t have its word balloons (I tend to change my mind about adding them before or after) but I actually like it. The comic itself had a very strict palette.

Back to work.
It’s still technically Autumn for eleven more days.
I did the cover for The Coast this week! The theme was charity and giving. It was super fun and exciting to do. Yaaaaaaaaa. It’s going to be weird seeing it around town everywhere this week. Warm fuzzy feelings….

I basically wrote the names of my family and loved ones (including the Tenth Doctor) in there. I wont be seeing them this Christmas, so I thought a not so subtle tribute in print would be nice.
I started this drawing while in Minneapolis for MIX! I was in a cafe with my dear pal Britt Sabo. It started out in a different direction. Um, the first image is NSFW. HAHAHA.
Below you can see the starting point of this illustration leading to the inks and the colors. SHA SHAAAAAA!
I have a lot of work to do. It’s a good thing my cats are fine with waiting patiently.
A gig poster I did for an upcoming show. I was excited that it involved the Symphony. I went through so many design ideas before I came to this one. The thought of a moth falling in love with a star is lovely. Continue reading
I took a break from drawing to draw something mindless. For me mindless drawing is Lere doing science magic with pie and coffee (and Jane who is mostly naked). What a world! That’s my STAR TOURS mug. My favorite and most prized possession (maybe, maybe not). I take beverages pretty seriously.
