The Puffin’s Corset

It’s been a hang-on-like-grim-death sort of week, what with one thing and another, and I’m having to put together art for two back-to-back conventions, which means that if I assume that I will have leftovers from the first show, I will sell out completely, but if I prepare fully for both shows, sales will be wrist-slittingly poor across the board. This is just the way of the world, so I am fitting in art where I can between the final death march of Dragonbreath 6 illustrations.

On the bright side, I have a sexy puffin. Many things are tolerable if you also have a sexy puffin.

6 x 8, mixed media on print sealed to board

(I firmly believe that even the most clownish creatures in the animal kingdom probably want to feel sexy occasionally, and absolutely ought to be able to, goddamnit.*)

It’s nice to get back to making art, even frantically and under the gun as I am, and I’m really pleased with how some of them are coming out. The weird quasi-pastel quality of the colored pencil-over-clear gesso is a lot of fun to play with.

The sexy puffin will go to DucKcon and/or Anthrocon, unless somebody makes me the proverbial Offer I Cannot Refuse beforetimes.

Also, prints are available!

*I probably feel this way because I myself am somewhat rounded and inherently comical and still occasionally feel like rockin’ a corset, damnit, and cannot quite escape the feeling that the end result looks something like this.
