This is an old painting. The goblins are supposed to be pissed off because they wanted to eat some fairies for dinner, not mushrooms.
This one is available as a postcard, in my card shop.
I have the next five days off from my soul-stomping-spirit-crushing job, so Im sure fresh material is on the way, no more re-runs!

I got sick of my Moleskine so while I was in Montreal I bought a new small notebook for work. The paper is thinner and less intimidating. I dont have much downtime at my job (with all the scanning and bagging I have to do). These are the quick scribbles I can get in every now and then.
EDIT: They arent really quotes, they're more like obsessive thoughts I repeat in my head over and over until I write them down and move on to the next one.

Switchsky, my northern neighbor, and I exchanged portraits. This is my fourth swap. Ive also been trading the portraits in the mail afterward, which is fun fun.
Edit: See The Portrait Party for info on this game.

My third Portrait Swap. This one was between me and Steve. He is the one who brought you my idea for Illustration Friday Night.
Remember! When participating in a portrait swap via the internet there are a few things you should keep in mind when taking your reference photo.
- Use strong directional lighting. It helps me see the planes of your mug. Natural daylight through a window works best. Get away from your computer screen, the blue glare does not count.
- Get your whole head in the shot. Do not skim the top of your head or your chin.
- Try to take high resolution photos and minimize the blurriness. If this means you have to get back on your meds to get rid of your shakes do it!
- Do not send me nudes. Jesus.

So the other day I was walking around in the town forest and I found a spot to stack some rocks. Stacking rocks is one of my top three favorite things to do. I feel like I made quite an impressive tower and I wanted to remember it. I didnt bring my digital camera and my cell phone isnt high tech enough to take pictures, so I sat for a while and sketched it out. Sketching is also one of my top three favorite things to do. The tower is probably a little taller than me, and Im pretty short.
This is my 30th IF.
