“The Wolves Descend”, a note about police brutality

June 18, 2020
A dark storm cloud in the shape of a wolfpack descends over a city. People are running away in the foreground.

I know you’re probably groaning if you’re opening this or getting it in your email, because it seems everyone has something to say about the current events of the world right now. I have seen a lot of things, as many of us have, and I have read even more. I have “opinions” of things that not everyone will agree with, but I suppose I should just say it: Black Lives Matter.

An illustration of a man's torso. The image begins at his chin but ends at his hips. He is nude. In his battered, dirty, and bloodied hands, he is holding a bouquet of stringy, brambly wild chamomile flowers with white petals. The stems of the flowers have red blood on them.

Lo (lol) and behold! A new piece of art!

I don’t really know where to start on this one. It kind of came about when I was doodling up a bunch of ideas I had. Sometimes I’ll jot them all down into their own individual files and then pick at them one by one, or sometimes I’ll pick at a bunch of them all at the same time. Sometimes they’ll get entirely forgotten, or I just won’t be into the idea enough to get cracking on it. Continue reading Low, 2018, In Progress Pics

Leucism, In Progress Pics and Timelapse, 2018

An oblique 3/4 portrait of a pale man. He has a shimmering animalistic flash in his eyes. His black hair is swaying in the wind. In the forefront are various black and white moths and butterflies fluttering into view.

This new work I made rather quickly. I had seen a few gorgeous pictures of some albino folks online. I often look at the albino color palette of skin, given my character Azra (and his counterpart Falco) are both leucistic, meaning they suffer from partial loss of pigmentation, mostly in their skin. Anyway, I like drawing bugs a lot, and I often see a flutter of bright white moths around my front porch light, so I got to thinking about the contrast of white on white and then black.

An illustration of a nude man standing in a foggy forest. He looks upset, and he is holding a limp, bloodied black wolf in his arms, riddled by arrows

This picture started as an Inktober doodle!

Basically the idea behind this picture is simple enough… Azra’s an admitted animal lover. He’s not really super open about this fact, simply because, as an animal lover, people would expect someone who feels so passionately about animals to probably have a bunch of them, right? But Azra doesn’t own any. For the simple fact that it breaks his heart every time they die, and most animals don’t live very long, as opposed to Azra who lives, well as a vampire, forever. So he’s already dealing with the heartache of humans having relatively short lifespans in comparison to his own, but all these mini-heartbreaks along the way of something as selflessly loyal as a dog he just can’t stand to stomach.
