The Emperor

The Emperor

So after the little detour from last week, we’re back onto some more tarot designs! I don’t know what it is about this guy but I quite like him.

And again, if you haven’t caught my previous card designs, here is a convenient little hyperlink list to them. Will be releasing a new one every week!

>> 0 The Fool<<

>> 1 The Magician<<

>> 2 The High Priestess<<

>> 3 The Empress <<

Coarse, Rough and Irritating

Sand

I love Star Wars, but that movie was definitely the most cringe worthy of the saga.

That said, I also live on the coast, am surrounded by beaches and also don’t really like sand. I’m fine with walking on it, hate having to sit on it. Also how it gets into all the folds of your clothes, yuck!

 

Nothing is Ever Bad or Good

Bad or Good

So I just went through another cyclone. That was pretty fun. You know what isn’t fun? Not having power for over 52 hours and counting (I’ve moved back to my parents place for the last few nights where I can have a warm shower and not drink off milk).

While I did have no power, I did do some drawing by candlelight and finished this one off. It’s based off a German saying a close friend told me “Nichts ist nur gut oder nur schlecht” – “Nothing is just bad or good”

Bending Space and Time

Gemma

Started this little piece while on plane flight back from watching a music gig about a month ago; finally went back and finished inking it the other night. It’s based on a time travelling character from a comic series I’m currently working on (whenever I get free time, which is pretty rare at the moment).

Uni has started to pick up again too. Man, I forgot how quickly semester gets out of hand!

A Humble Offering

Offering

Offering

Multiple lots of very exciting news:

Firstly, I’m now 21 woo!

Secondly, I’ve moved out of home and am now living in a new place and it’s pretty great! The only downside is that I’m still waiting for the internet to be connected here (hence the later than normal post because I’m trying to limit the amount of phone data I use).

Touch wood this time next week I’ll have full speed internet again! (Just like last time, the lack of internet has actually made me do a lot more art to stop the encroaching boredom)

Some Things Become Better with Age

Lomo

Based on a friend’s Lomo LC-A+ 20th Anniversary Edition

Analogue photography and film development is something I’ve been interested in for a while now. I think a lot of the appeal to the medium (for me at least) comes from its finiteness and the importance placed on each shot; you can’t just take a photo and immediately see if you’re happy with it it, then take endless more photos in the event that you aren’t.

However, convincing my housemates that we should set up a dark room may be a little bit tricky.

The Whirling Abyss

baphomet-1280x905

Away for a  small break in Brisbane this weekend to see Porter Robinson and Madeon’s “Shelter” concert (if you actually look at my “about me” page you’ll see that these two artists both rank in my top 5, so imagine how excited I was to see them both at once!) It was absolutely amazing and something I’ll remember for a good while.

Of course this meant I didn’t have my scanner and computer to finish cleaning up this piece, but my phone and little Surface managed to just pull through with it. Still playing around with concept art for my next comic project, but I have also started doing the pencils for the first issue too.
