Fucking Whimsical

I was talking with my friend Abby of Tiny Not Trivial over coffee last weekend, and I jokingly mentioned in passing that my 'brand' is sort of, well, fucking whimsical. Except it turns out that isn't really a joke. It's pretty much exactly what I specialize in - whimsy, but with a dose of expletive (when appropriate). Okay, but what does that mean for my art?

I love color. It's the single most unifying part of the varied styles across my comics, illustrations, portraits, and other commissions. You may find the colors I use in my work unexpected; they may catch you off guard, but they'll also delight you. It's whimsy with an edge.

I've pulled over many times to watch a beautiful sunset. I never turn down an adorable cat video. I'll take pictures of flowers, shadows, abandoned buildings, bridge trusses, signage, rusty gates, peeling paint, fog, clouds, and anything else that strikes my fancy. I don't always use those photographs in my work. Sometimes they spend many months as ideas. But they all make me smile, in a wry sort of way. You know me, always on brand.
