Spot the difference

The pigeon's pink feet were really bothering me, they were too indistinct and didn't fit in that well with the colour scheme. Much better now I reckon!

Texture tryouts

I had some sponge stuff from some packaging materials so have been mucking about with using it to apply ink and paint. I'm to get a bit more mess and texture into my work. It's quite fun to use but can be quite hard to control. I also want to try making off areas but I've never had much success with masking gum and need a better knife before I go cutting intricate stuff out.

This piece I did for Chromacon's artbook. Chromacon is a NZ indie arts festival happening soon, will post more info soon.

This is from a zine I'm working on about inappropriate urges or desires. Sometimes I just feel like licking the ground for some reason. I've been soliciting more of these thoughts from friends so feel free to leave some of your own in the comments.

Sponge play.

Laika go fetch

Did this drawing the other day, Laika the soviet space traveling dog. I've ordered Nick Abadzis' graphic novel, Laika from the library, preparing myself for lots of sad dog content.

Plant sitting

I'm currently looking after this beautiful plant (I think it's a type of Christmas Cactus...?). Shortly after painting this all its flowers fell off so I've moved it to a cooler part of the house and it seems to be doing ok, no new flowers though.
