Goth Girls and a rooster, not together.

August already. How times flies! And the older you get, the faster it goes. Then again, I’m not a big fan of the heat so I don’t really mind if July and August sort of flash quickly by. I’m one of those weird people who prefer cooler weather, even tons of snow (only until March though). I work in my loft though, on the third floor. Our home is air conditioned but it sure doesn’t reach all the way up here. This is why I’m longing for September, when I can once again create in a room that doesn’t feel like a sauna. My drawing arm sticks to the table due to sweat. It’s pretty gross.

Anyway, enough heat whining. Here’s a set of art cards in goth girl style. These are done in marker and ink and are for a trade on IllustratedATCs.com, my favorite trading place.


I haven’t been posting a lot since I’ve been pretty busy this year but I have been making lots of art – some for work, some to sell and lots to trade as always. I wish I could be a better blogger but I struggle with it. Well…. mostly I struggle with time management, lol.

Here’s a bit of random stuff I’ve done over the past couple of months: A colorful rooster acrylic painting on canvas for a rooster lover. The pretty, pink peonies are for a graphic set I sell (available on Etsy). They’re drawn and colored digitally.

Oh! I made a new coloring book, this one is filled with retro style pin up girls. But they’re all nudes so don’t click if that sort of thing isn’t your thing. πŸ™‚

Happy PPF! I hope everyone is having a great summer with family and friends and making lots of great art too. πŸ™‚

    Beautifully done, I love their faces! β™₯ It has not been as I was dreading around here, regarding the heat… usually we are in the late 90s but this past couple of days only in the 80s. Not complaining though! :o)

    Your work is beautiful. I love the different styles you have, combining both digital and hand painted art. I don't know much about digital but I'm guessing it's perfect for creating those adult colouring books that have taken the world by storm (I love that your colouring book is adult colouring book as well as a colouring book for adults! and of course I had to take a peek – beautiful illustrations!) Your rooster is fantastic – love the vibrant colours.

    When I saw your Gothic Girls, the upper left made me think of Abby from NCIS. Love your rooster too. All great and unique talent. From Gothic, to roosters, to soft flowers, YOU got it all. Loved your post.

    Well, I am from N.Y but have been living in Virginia for the last many years and I still can't get used to the damn heat and humidity. I understand the sticky stuff and finding the time to blog. Love the detail in your girls, Love your illustration style. Congrats on being featured.
