Vladrushka - Pinup: Pooling Resources
Brand-new Vladrushka pinup, and a bit elaborate for a dirty joke, but then that's always been the way when drawing her. Unlike my recent pieces, this one's utterly digitally drawn and colored, except the water, which I did with actual watercolor on bristol and scanned in. Also used actual scans of zipatone for texture. I was going for a sort of 80s synthwave look. Also, back to her classic hairdo again.

Full-size piece is 20" x 40".

Suzy Spreadwell: A Wanton Lust for Burning Angels
Third in my series depicting the baroquely blasphemous fantasies of Suzy Spreadwell, a constant source of guilt and yet, delight to this Christian girl trying her best to stay pure in every way that counts.

Completely non-digital(except the lettering at the bottom). 11 x 14 on Crescent board, aquarelle, gouache, graphite, charcoal, bronze Sharpie, chalk, and india ink. Original can be had via Paypal:
www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?…

Be sure to get the first issue of her very own comic at Comixology, Kindle and Google Play! More here:

Sleepy Sins of Suzy Spreadwell no.2 - Pentatheos
Second in a series of single pieces depicting the religiously risky and somewhat symbolic fantasies of Suzy Spreadwell. This is my first analog color drawing or painting, depending on how you view it, ever. My only other work with color till now has been digital. (though I've always drawn analog) This is 10"x13" on very thick Crescent studio board: India ink with crowquill, watercolor, gouache, chalk, graphite, and colored pencil. Original available via Paypal:

This was inspired by La Femme Damnee  by Nicolas Francois Octave Tassaert, which I discovered thanks to 
Biblio Curiosa on Twitter.

And her first issue is out and can be gotten at Kindle, Comixology, and Google Play! More on that here:

Vladrushka - Fifteen (anniversary) - Ink
Newest Vladrushka drawing, fresh off the board, done to celebrate her 15th anniversary since she was first published at Eros Comix.
India ink with brush & crowquill on hot press Crescent board, 11x14.  I was going to also hand-color it but i think I'll just do this digitally and save that for something else, as I'm not risking ANY of this ink. ;)

Vladrushka: The Box
My first india ink drawing (instead of digital inking) in 10 years, & first Vladrushka pinup in almost as long. And my first use of grey wash with water pens. 


It's called "The Box." You know, because she's sitting on one.


11x14 on Crescent board, original $75 at Paypal
