I used to draw on my knees, with my arms on top of my bed when I was little.
I grew up with comics and created the Durtykat fanzine.
I specialize in illustration.
Back in May, I wanted to do the #mermaychallenge, an online event where artists draw and share their mermaid illustrations during the entire month of May. But I knew I had limited time, with everything happening that month (buying new home/moving/fixing up the old home to sell), and a fulltime job. I created Mer-Kat, a hybrid kitten/mermaid. I felt this was such a fun new character to explore. Life underwater with a feline-based personality.
A loved ones...loved one.
This is a mix of pencil, ink, and gold leaf.
The colors: alizarin crimson, phthalo blue and some kind of anonymous orange (not cadmium)

More literal illustrations of food names. Drunken shrimp.
French toast has many many names. Pain perdu (lost bread) is one of my favorites.
Collage with found words.

Trying on this illustrative style with bold contrasting colors. Unfinished, but I like it, so I decided to share.
