Philbin and Rose (I)

The ALC commissions are slowly rolling out. If you donated to my doomed AIDS Ride campaign this year, please rest assured your name's on an Excel spreadsheet and I'll be getting something to you "within the year". Promise.

A grad school friend plays a game with his daughter where he's a big clumsy monster (Philbin) and she's a cat (Rose) who teaches the monster how to be more catlike. Hijinks ensue. I designed this for her birthday as a poster, though someday I think it would make a great series. They loved it, which felt really really good.

Mermaid (I)

I painted this last December for the niecelet, and finally gave it to her for her birthday. She HATED it. She didn't like that the mermaid was flying around in space, she couldn't figure that out. Also, the octopus' eyes were terrifying. I didn't mind, I enjoyed painting it. We'll try giving it to her in a few years...?
