Happy Memorial Day Weekend chaps! Father’s Day is just around the corner! If you’d like a sweet custom illustration for dad this year, be sure to get your order in early at my Etsy Shop, etsy.com/shop/StrangeTeeth !
look guys! a doodle of worth! this is literally smaller than the size of my palm, but that’s how i roll.
because all recent work is non-showable and i haven’t had time to doodle anything of worth, here’s a photo of what my desk looks like right now. organic lollipop wrappers everywhere
I was interviewed by students at Ferris State University a little while back, and the final version is up! Don’t mind my ridiculous voice.
howdy chaps, I’m rounding up some of my work to go be made into prints to have for sale in my new Etsy Shop, and I figured I’d ask the masses - are there any pieces of mine you folks would like to see as a print?
i’m all for cute stuff, but there’s nothing quite like the dark stuff. it’s been awhile since i did subtractive work. the merchant is my spitting image.
drawn while listening to the dear hunter’s new album ‘migrant’ but I also realized pomplamoose’s “monster mask” is a strangely appropriate song as well.
HELP: an open message to all of grand rapids

Hey Ho! With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I’m very happy to publicly present to you all my new Etsy Shop! This will be the new home for ordering my Colorblock Portraits, and very soon, beautiful prints, stationary, and one-of-a-kind artwork! If you’d like a rad illustration for Mother’s Day, be sure to order early, as orders are already coming in fast!
Oh darling tumblerers, I’ve been so busy with work, and to be honest, it is marvelous. It’s so wonderful to be busy with the work that I love, and that clearly other people love too!
Here’s a portrait I got to do for an awesome couple and their adorable pets - definitely one of my favorite cats I’ve ever drawn, too! This one was so fun to work one, but I find that all of the personal custom portraits I do are fantastic! Having people tell me their stories and the details they’ll love and then incorporating them - it’s such a great process that I enjoy so much.
hey dudes, it’s been awhile - loads of being busy on this end! here’s a little digital painting i did for a friend’s upcoming graduation recital! this was a great little piece to do, as the most instruction i was given was, “listen to all the songs I’ll be playing, and draw whatever you think from it!” this is what came of the various works, most notably these two songs:
needless to say, it was loads of fun! i really enjoy doing traditional paint styles digitally!
this is a rarity for me in many ways, 1) posting two days in a row 2) doing fan art 3) doing something from a teevee show and 4) making it a caricature to boot!
i really, really, REALLY don’t like to get caught up in television shows, no matter how great or how noteworthy they can be - i just don’t like the crippling obsession of the mind. it’s just not for me. i’m a book reader, a video gamer, and a tentative movie watcher at heart - not so much tv dramas. i just get waaaaay too into them, and it’s so easy to get sucked into things. my time is too precious for that kinda thing :/
HOWEVER - there are times when it’s inevitable like when my young ward tells me he wants to watch this show he loves on netflix while i’m working, and i oblige. young merlin on the screen begs to be drawn because he’s not unattractive, but really angular and bizarre looking, and those ears! i love interesting faces! the show ain’t so bad either. i’m enjoying how they play off his goofyness.
holy howdy loads of lovely new followers! you will all encourage me to post more often. as such, here is a tiny gratuitous Aisling drawing. turned it neon green to burn your tender eyes.
EDIT: the mister arrived home from work, took a peek at this says:
“You know who that reminds me of? Like, tremendously? The girl from the Secret of Kells.”
I’m laughing at him unabashedly.
been listening to a lot of midlake lately - i like to think it’s doing me good.
what i’d REALLY like to is leave my sketches like this, forever, because i hate them once they get any further because i hate lines and i hate color and ugh.
lovely lovely Lisa said the other day that all she wants is “mint hair and a pompadour” and i couldn’t get the image out of my head. most of it was spent thinking about what exactly is a pompadour? anyway, this is the hasty scribble that came of it! also, go check out her sketchblog because she is amazing like woah.
