Pencils for this year’s Christmas card: a festive triceratops.
The Homestuck Beta Kids vinyl figures will be for sale any day now and I’m excited to finally see my designs for these guys come to life.
I can’t wait to have a set for my desk. :)
Beta Kids Vinyl Figurine sneak peak photos!
Their weapons are removable and they are posable with articulating necks, arms (at varying points for each figurine) and waists.
They each come individually packed in a windowed box with gorgeous artwork depicting their respective lands.
Unfortunately, they won’t be delivered to our warehouse until sometime mid-December, so they will not be available for delivery by Christmas. Hence, when they go up they’ll be available only as a pre-order.
The figurines had originally been scheduled for a December 9th pre-order release, but will instead be postponed by a few days. Maybe a week. Everything else scheduled for release on December 9th will still be put up on the store later today! :D
(Purchasing note: if you pre-order any Beta Kids Vinyl Figurines together with other in-stock store items, we will hold your complete order until we’re able to ship the figurines. We won’t be able to split shipments, so please only place orders that include vinyl figurines if you’re willing to wait for everything in your order.)
This was for a class on traditional hand rendering of design concepts, either using traditional media (markers, pastels, etc.) or digital art software like Photoshop or Sketchbook Pro.
Many of the students will be moving on to do 3-D rendering next semester though and I hope that a lot of these principles will be just as useful to them there.
The adorable stuffed toys that I helped design for What Pumpkin based on the consort creatures from Homestuck are now available for purchase through the online store. It was a lot of fun working on these guys and I’m super happy with how they turned out.
Now Available For Sale!
Senator Lemonsnout & Pyralspite - Now you get to purchase your own! We will be restocking with more in December, but we believe we have enough in house to cover anyone who wants to buy their own until then. Only Senator Lemonsnout and Pyralspite are currently available for purchase. However, that changes on December 9th. >:)
Homestuck Tarot Deck - With 78 cards of beautiful artwork from 39 different artists, it’s definitely a lot of gorgeous in a little package.

I did the designs for the Consort plushes so I’m very excited to see them finally hit WP’s shelves. :)
I’m teaching a class on shading/rendering color in Photoshop on Tuesday so I made a little demo image.
Decided to take a break from prep for my class and clean up/color my Leonardo sketch from a couple of weeks ago.
Something Terrible is now available for download. This is the true story the above image, You’ll Be Safe Here, comes from. I spent the last year working on this, and I think it’s the best thing I’ve ever done with comics.
Please share everywhere. There are people out there who need this story.
