Oh shit, forgot some!

Watson's legs were definitely better than mine-you will not catch me dragging after my leggy-ass bff over 6 miles of goddamn pasture just for funsies. But still, I like to imagine he had massive, awesome scars, because UNF.

I just forgot to post these last time.

THAT'S RIGHT, MORE SHERLOCK HOLMES BITCHES

I think this is the first time one of my nerdy loves has suddenly become popular, and I have to admit, I'm excited about Holmes having a retarded internet fandom. I've already read a zillion official pastiches & essays, and frankly, some (many) of them are just LJ fanfic that found a publisher, so I don't understand some of the snooty old fan hate going on. CAN'T WE ALL JUST HUG IT OUT AND MAKE MACROS TOGETHER???

It always kind of nagged at me that most of L's screaming legions of fangirls didn't realize that his hot quirky little habits were lifted bodily from Holmes. Still, I was on board with Death Note up until the fall of L and rise of Near. At least the sloppy retcon that was Holmes' return could be blamed on ACD NOT EVEN WANTING TO WRITE THESE STUPID STORIES YOU GUIZ.

I question the length of his right arm in this drawing. Also, get your fucking feet off the furniture man!



I actually found a preliminary sketch to the SH is Wearing No Pants drawing. Meaning I felt this concept was important enough to merit a practice run to work out all the issues likely to arise when drawing S.H. sans pants.


I love when Watson drags Holmes to the country to not do coke and run around getting in fights 24/7, but Holmes is like OOH I SMELL MYSTERIES. Poor Watson. You fought the good fight, buddy.


The '09 movie made me like Watson much more. I much prefer him sassy to starry-eyed with scattered nagging. Also, let's be honest, he is kinda dingy in the books.


I feel pretty confident saying I'm the only nerd who discovered House while browsing the related works section of the Holmes Wikipedia page. I immediately emailed one of my friends asking if she'd seen this show, to which she replied with Hugh Laurie on the cover of Esquire and posed the excellent question, 'where the fuck have you been, they just finished season 3."


Speaking of Watson, and things that have been niggling at me for years, I always wondered if some of Wilson's mannerisms were based on David Burke's Watson. Or maybe it's just that there's only so many ways to look constantly exasperated with your BFF.

Painty sketches and paintingy paintings for sale!

Still working on makin' stuff! Also, doing these made me realize how looong it's been since I've drawn any ladies. I became Boy Crazy Stacey at some point in my artistic career here.

My scanner is judging meeeee

My scanner is killing me. This is the same painting, scan on the left, photo on right. Somehow my scanner is managing to totally drop out any and all neon without changing the rest of the image saturation. Whyyyyyyy.


And the last of the misc sketches from my most recent sketchbook.

Restraints I

I've been commissioned a few times to rework old pieces, and it's one of those things that I would never do on my own, but am always really pleased with when it happens. I like to forget about everything I make the instant paint dries. Soooooo, projects like this are probably really good for me.

I may have to do more of this series, I really like how this one turned out.


The original painting, from 2005, I think. I clearly remember it being one of the first Official Paintings I did, since it was on an actual canvas. It was also supposed to be part of a series of some sort, but instead was turned into...


this wallpaper. Man, back in the day of small squarey monitors. Feelin' old!


This dude was also used in a logo for a UK film co around 2006. The actual logo is long lost to hard drive death and my general failure at preserving anything, but I do still have a few related sketches.

Birds of a Feather show

Couple little companion pieces for the Kids Rock benefit concert and nature festival deal, which you can get tickets and info for here!


Didn't really sketch anything for this one, except this little owl guy.
