To my wife, happy 9-3/4!

I want to share something a little more personal than usual. Above is an illustration I made for my wife’s birthday. She is both a leap year baby and a Harry Potter fan. This year we celebrated 9-3/4 by visiting London and I wanted to give her something to commemorate the trip in the style of J.K. Rowling’s illustrations.

The Play-Doh Golem

For a long time now, I’ve been fascinated by the old Jewish legend of the Golem. This is just a fun little pencil sketch of an idea that has a kind of Seussian feel about it.

I think, therefore Cthulhu

This is what happens after I visit the Rodin Museum in Paris.

Check out where this guy has traveled on my YouTube channel.

This Lovecraft/Rodin mashup is is made from polymer clay.

The Pack Rat

PackRat-Fin-Reduced

Somewhere deep in the back of my mind palace, at the end of a quiet corridor, through a small hole in a wall, lives this little fellow, hiding from the world and hoarding his treasures.

This is my spirit animal.

He may turn up in an illustrated story one of these days (as long as I can dig him out!) He’s probably pretty comfy right where he is, with all his bits and bobs and tchotchkes.

This illustration is a combination of ink, watercolor paint and watercolor pencils.

If you’re interested at all in the step-by-step process he went through, you should check out my Instagram account.
