My buddy *HylianJean had an early birthday party this past weekend and, seeing how she always gives me the most lovelythings for my birthday, I figured it was high time I returned the favor.
We met through the Myst community and Jean is a huge Riven/Moiety fanatic, so I thought it appropriate to draw her in some fancy, Katran-esque Rivenese getup. Thanks to Dropbox for not saving my first attempt because WHATEVER the second one turned out way better. SO THERE
My piece for Ltd. Art Gallery's OVER THE LINE show, opening TONIGHT (June 6th) in Seattle! I'll be swinging by the opening myself, if any of y'all are planning on making an appearance- looks like it's going to be a pretty amazing spread.
I had a ton of ideas for this show initially, and was actually a good 60% into a piece before I switched gears and decided to do a Dapper Dan spread, a la magazine ads of the late 1930's. I'm a sucker for typography and commercial design, not to mention George Clooney's handsome handsome face, so this seemed like the best choice all around.
HAHAHAHA SUCKERS try to shame me now for hoarding all those interbellum era fonts
My finished piece for the Clash of the Classics book! The prompt was to illustrate some iconic conflict from traditional literature and, well, who am I to resist Poe? I've been drawing Fortunato and Montressor in some way or another for years, so it seemed like a good opportunity to revisit some of my older work:
I'll be the first to admit that I bit off a little more than I could chew with this thing- spiritual triptych, an abominable number of elaborately-dressed background characters, like a ton of skulls. Way to simplify, Claire.
Red Dead Redemption! (My god is that John Marston smiling!?) Another fave game of mine where I finally do some artwork for; embodying Marston as the achievement "Dastardly": [link] I actually hogtied a lady and threw her on the tracks just for shits and giggles and the achievement popped up! It was an awesome surprise! haha - props to Rockstar! Thanks for lookin!
This is my finished t-shirt design for my sister's amazing Arrested Development/Game of Thrones mash-up blog, Arrested Westeros! I'm a sucker for drawing heraldry, so this was a blast- the parallels between Buster and Jaime were just too good to pass up.
You can pre-order the shirt over at the Arrested Westeros Shop- Em's hoping to have some of them at NYCC, and they'll start shipping out in mid-October.
I completely forgot that Gunpowder came out earlier this year! I did a bunch of early character exploration for them when they were still finding their bearings- the final game looks nothing like this, granted, but I’m still pretty happy with these.
SUPRISE Claire enjoys drawing tiny animals dressed as cowboys.
