IF – Propagate

Propagate

It doesn’t take much to spread the seeds of discontent.  Sometimes just the right little nudge, sometimes nothing more than a breath.

For Illustration Friday.  You can’t see it well here, but the breath was done in silver ink.  I love using silver wherever I can.

IF–Adrift

This is a scratchboard piece I just did for Illustration Friday.  The theme was “Adrift.”  As I drew, I started to develop a story around this situation.  I might try to expand it to a short graphic story.  I have plenty of scratchboard.

Illustration Friday: “Muddy”

Muddy

The three-trunked glorfnet is a mud-dweller, unlike its wooly cousins in the far north of the planet.  It thrives on the bacteria that lives in the mud, and rarely ever leaves its nutrient rich, albeit, messy, home.  Consequently, it is also far less intelligent than its arctic cousins.  Many glorfnets have plants growing on them, usually the blue-leaved premanian vine.
