Hallo comrades,

I’ve been working on a few visual art projects since last update, including the examples above. I got the idea for creation of these portraits after seeing the high tallies of a handful of my patrons ‘lifetime’ contributions and being pretty fucking blown away by your generosity. I wanted to do something nice and personal for y’all, so I started this series. There are a few more to go. Thank you.

This is a preliminary sketch of a cosplayer whose work, “Ash Wednesday”, I was thinking of drawing. Tina’s concept required a full body format to show the cosplay and would have been for comic/horror conventions with the intent to sell prints. I bowed out of the project after realizing I wasn’t the right artist for the job.

I created a piece for KEXP’s On The Record show in collaboration with the weekly artist meetup Drawnk. Here’s the store http://thedrawnk.bigcartel.com/products where you can buy the records,
The show is up until July 5th at KEXP’s gathering room in Seattle Center.

I was inspired to enter the show after playing the Blue Moon Tavern, an iconic Seattle venue, with the local cover band Cloud Cover last month.
