Medusa's adopts a pet
Everybody wants a pet unicorn. There just aren't enough to go around. So most people would go home with a jackalope, or a hellhound, or even the occasional werewolf. But nobody at the shelter ever suggested they even LOOK at the catoblepas. It was just too dangerous and ugly. Clearly he'd live out his days at the mythical pet shelter, alone and unloved...\r\n\r\nBut it turns out there's a perfect pet for every one and a perfect owner for every pet...\r\n\r\nacrylic and colored pencil on bristol. 7X10"

I am Pika, see me cute!
\r\nWhat's a pika? They're abominably adorable animals related to rabbits. They typical dwell in burrows in mountainous areas. They're frequently seen scampering over the rocks with a mouthful of grass to line their burrows with. They typically weigh less than a pound.\r\n\r\nThis little guy is seen munching on some alpine flowers, one of their favorite snacks. This is an American pika which can be found in the Rocky Mountains and western coastal ranges of the US. Other species of pikas are found in Asia and Eastern Europe.\r\n\r\nACEO in charcoal on bristol. This has been sprayed with krylon fixative to prevent smudging from handling. 2.5 X 3.5 inches.

Fast Food Fox
ACEOs seem to be one of those hot things at moment so I wanted to try one. My paintings have slowly been shrinking anyway, so going all the way down to trading card size didn't seem too hard.\r\n\r\nWhy is this called Fast Food Fox? do you seriously think that little duck can outrun a fox? We all know how this will end...\r\n\r\nThis picture is actually bigger on screen than in person! It's a tiny 2.5X3.5 inches. Acrylic, colored pencil and charcoal on bristol.\r\n\r\nThis is also the first fox I've drawn in about 7 or 8 years.

After breaking yet another custom frame, slicing open my hand twice, and taking the skin off my knuckles with a wood rasp I gave up on framing existing pieces to take to Anthrocon in July.\r\n\r\nI cut the stock to the exact dimensions of an existing frame and painted this ode to how I felt about framing. So not doing that again!\r\n\r\nMixed media on bristol.

A werewolf cub gets marked in a ceremony.\r\n\r\nCrayon resist with acrylic washes, and acrylic overlay on cardboard. The ridged appearance comes from the cardboard. This was an offshoot of some experiments with hot wax.\r\n\r\nTo flatten out some of the ridges in the cardboard, I initially soaked it in water, than rolled it flat with a rolling pin. I stuck it unde r board and left it to dry. Then I went and did the texturing with several passes of different colored crayon. Then I did a couple washes in watered acrylic to give the base color. Wax didn't resist quit as much as I expected it would, so I went back over it with some more crayon. Then added the 'mark' on the head in undiluted acylic, straight from the tube.\r\n\r\nFun experiment, may come came back to this technique later.
