I’ve updated my site’s shop with this pessimistic valentine. People have expressed interest in it, so I hope someone snatches it up.
If you’ve purchased from me before and are interested in adding more of my work to you art collection, please shoot me a message first and I will provide you with a 15% off discount.
I did a little write up for RedBubble, where I talk about getting the most out of your Halloween designs. I realize we are past Halloween time(if you even believe in it ever not being Halloween time) and into the winter holidays, which is why I updated my RedBubble shop with some Giftmas-esque illustrations as well. Give it a read!
As for school-
I’m learning, again, how and when to take advice and criticism. I don’t get upset about negative reactions or try to force positive ones out of my critics, but there is something seductive about the good feedback I receive, and that makes me afraid I might just heed advice in order to keep receiving it. It’s childish, but I don’t feel like I’ve ever gotten a lot of encouragement or recognition, so sometimes it just simply feels good to hear some.
It’s no secret that I like playing with the idea of rabbit’s feet, myths and luck. I was toying with doing an illustration like this for a while, and if you scroll down posts you’ll see a similar sketch in my moleskin.
While looking up rabbit’s feet on pinterest, I found the above pictures and used them as inspiration. It’s a combo of a rabbit, the lucky rabbit’s foot superstition and Japanese Maneki Neko/good luck cats.
I’ve uploaded my Not So Lucky print to Redbubble and Society6. Hope you dig it!
Hey all, a friend of mine from the neighborhood I grew up, someone I used to get into young teen troublemaking with, Brian Uff, has just put out an album. I provided the cover art. Please check out his music at the below links.
