I was requested to do 2 commissions recently that both had to do with the holiday season.
The first is for the Gigaventure team who blogs about anime/manga/gaming news. This is currently being used as their cover image on their Facebook page!
The other is for a lovely couple who contacted me for a Christmas themed image to be used as a Christmas card!
Both were very fun to do, and really put me in a holiday mood while working on them. Thanks to both Poy and Veronica!

The one thing I learnt from putting this illustration together is that tiny buildings are fun to draw!
I changed my original plan while I was working on this, so now there are a bunch of small building lying around. Maybe I’ll go ahead and use them for something else!
A work in progress shot of the buildings uncut and unpainted can be seen here at my Tumblr!

Fanart for George R.R Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire (or more commonly known now as The Game of Thrones). The character of Rickon Stark and his direwolf Shaggydog.
I very rarely do fanart, but this idea was floating in my head for a few months. I figured I would go and finalize it, and I’m glad I did. It was very fun to do!

A small illustration I did for some relatives in Japan.

Apologies for the loooong time between updates!
I’ve been a bit here and there recently, which resulted in this horrible update schedule.
The above image is something that I finished back in July.
It was such a long time since I painted anything “real”, so I figured I would try my hand at it. It turned out surprisingly okay, and was actually kind of fun!
The planets were painted with my typical acrylic paints on mylar (also a favourite).
I was definitely nice change to the usual thing that I do, and will be doing it again!

I was asked to contribute a drawing of a girl named Adora for a little project. The father is bringing together artists to draw interpretations/portraits of his daughter and posting them here.
And here she is in a gorilla suit!
This was one of many in a wish-list of concepts that artists might take inspiration from.

I recently went to a wedding for a friend who I knew since elementary school.
Though we progressively grew apart as we got older, the ceremony left me with a huge smile on my face.
This is a little something I put together for them.

A few days ago I was working late into the night cutting small shapes for an illustration, when I suddenly stopped and wondered… why do I work so small?!
For some reason, this thought had never occurred to me before.
I thought that maybe it was to save time and resources. Less paint and paper to use and less things to cut.
But it also felt like making precise and tiny scissor snips – trying to make something to look just right, and trying over and over again until it does – is pretty much the opposite of time-effectiveness.
Then, a friend then mentioned that people who work small have a tendency to be perfectionists.
That makes a lot of sense.
