Christmas Gifts

So here are two out of the three things I have been working on lately for Christmas. And now that they have them I can post them up to share with the rest of you! Though there is one other that is taking longer, that I'll post up later. But for now, 2 out of 3 isn't bad right?

The first is a picture of my grandparents dog Bruiser. Who recently passed away due to bone cancer. We all miss him dearly, and when they unwrapped it everyone got a little emotional. But it was happy tears, or at least I would hope. I decided to depict him in one of his funnier moments so it'd be something nice to look back on. And since you have not seen a picture of him, that painting is to scale. He really was that huge.

This other set of three images I did are of a video game my sister and her boyfriend are obsessed with, which is Red Dead Redemption. I can't say I don't love it myself. But! Their apartments decor is mostly art prints, and ones where the alignment of the prints are off on purpose. So instead of making just a poster like image, I thought it'd be fun to do almost a deconstructed set of three images that reflect the main character of the game. 

The other goal is to make it similar enough to where it would work with the other prints they already had. Which all have a very rough, possibly hipster feel to them.  I may do this again and make a series, since it was fun to try to think of three different instances, or objects that I felt really reflected the character as a whole. Doing John I found was difficult since he is such a complex character, so trying it with others could prove a nice challenge. 

They seemed really excited when they got them, and immediately pointed out that they would work well with their "gun prints" which was the point. So all in all, 2 out of the 3 so far have been successful! The third you will be updated on soon, probably in the next few weeks.

Dog Chase

This is just a simple warm up sketch I did a while ago, nothing too fancy. Though I do feel like this may represent me right now. Running to keep track of all the holiday things I have to do. I missed a week of posting, but I've been working on Christmas gifts. Which I will post after the holiday is done since I know the people they are intended for are watching my blog. In the mean time though, you can have this funny little sketch, I may post up another later today to make up for my absence.

If you don't follow me on Twitter as well then I would like to take this time to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! :)

Bad Mr. Fluffykins!

Mr. Fluffykins has been caught by the caring, but angry woman of the house...

This is just a simple holiday wallpaper I promised I would make you guys this season. If you need smaller sizes let me know via the comments (don't forget the dimensions!) or in the contact form I have. I hope you all enjoy it! I thought it was a hilarious little story, which was sort of inspired by a friends cat. Oh, and made it less busy for people who enjoy less on their screen. Which is understandable if you use icons. It starts to look cluttered quickly.

Anyway, keep staying in the spirit of the holidays and don't forget to tell people how much you care this season!
