I noticed that oracle and divination decks tend to have symbols from nature. I didn’t really grow up with a lot of nature around so I decided to use the symbols from my everyday life to make my own divination deck.
Professor Pam’s Urban Divination Deck, A deck for those of us who got lost in alleys instead of valleys.
32 cards, 3”x3” cards with pearl ink accompanied by a guide. Includes cards like The Sewer Raccoon, The Suspicious Puddle, The Window Box, and The Free Newspaper.
I had so much fun doing this, they’re up at the shop now.
My new art zine Sticks & Stones is out!
I debuted it as Linework NW this weekend (which was a blast, by the way) and got great responses to it. Here are a few sneak peeks at what’s inside.
It’s a full color zine, 10 pages with 15 new illustrations I haven’t posed on here or anywhere else before. Check it out!
I’ve been busting asses getting ready for Linework NW recently but I promise I haven’t dropped off the face of the earth.
This little dude will be with me, but I already have him up on my Etsy for sale.
With long pauses between posts here I’m usually working a bunch, if you want to see more in progress shots feel free to follow me on Twitter or Instagram. I like to chat throughout the day, feel free to say hello!
I joined up with the Old & New project for their fourth round of prints, all having to do with the spicy parts of biblical lit.
print proceeds go to charity, their core values on the project are also really cool and made me want to do something for them. They’re all about no fear, different perspectives, and honesty. It was awesome that they invited this crazy liberal atheist and let get go at the Adam and Eve passage and let me interpret it the way i wanted to.
By request I made a process video! It’s not great but it gets the idea across. I keep my stuff really simple, and a lot of it is about planning ahead when drawing out, knowing things will be layered and that shapes need to stand out. It’s more of a practice thing, but it’s a fun puzzle.
I messed up here and there with this guy because, wow, recording yourself doing things is an instant way to give yourself anxiety up the wazoo.
A few things, I started with a thumbnail that was offscreen but it’s not much more than a few lines. I normally do my first sketch in a super light color pencil but the camera didn’t pick it up, hence my using an 8B or something. Nothin’ under 3B in these hands.
Also Earthling was in my lap for most of the beginning, it’s not optional around here.
