Crit Chicken Knitting Pattern – coming soon!

After I get some test knitting happened for this puppy, the pattern will be available for sale for $4. it is based on the Moonkins of WoW, but it can also be used to knit an owlbear or just a plain owl or whatever 😀

This took a long time to write, I wrote it as I went along with a test knit, then I typed it up and did the test knit you see posted here. I’m excited!

First art of 2012 – Dragon Kitty and a Pony

I’m experimenting with watercolours again. Apparently my muse just needed a break followed by a little artistic freedom. These both use the same palette, but with different results.

Dragon kitty: A commission. negative space is gooood!

And, as a card carrying Brony, I present to you the first colour image of my ponysona – Bacon Sparkles. Yes, I am a nerd. But if ponies keep me drawing, so be it. it isn’t the most challenging of poses, but hey.

Bacon Sparkles - My Little Pony

My LAST finished art of 2011 was also Pony related and in the throes of last minute knitting, I forgot to upload it here. My two favourite ponies, Applejack and Apple Bloom.

Holy Frijoles, long time no update

My med lab placement has kept me busy, but I do have some random, various arts and knittings for you all!

Things I did in 2011 that I am proud of:

  1. Sold a few books, (but didn’t market it well.. so that’s a resolution)
  2. Regained my digital art mojo
  3. Finished the theory part of my MLT training
Oh, the book! I will have a separate post about it, I am sure, but for now:

How Harold Got His Wings. A fable about a Polar Bear who wants nothing more than to fly among the snow geese

$10 each, all copies include a sketch. Shipping is extra and you get free stickers with every book!

Here is the cover, and I will throw together a teaser PDF.  The interior illustrations are black and white and one of them is below, too!

I knit this cute little mouse family for some good pals in Hamilton.

More knitting and some art are found behind the break, but first: resolutions (The creative ones)

  1. I resolve to draw more. 2011 was a rough year as I was recovering from tendinitis of the drawing wrist and focusing on my education.
  2. I resolve to learn how to crochet.
  3. I resolve to finally finish that knitting pattern.
  4. I resolve to sculpt again.
  5. I will post more often!
