Drawn while distracted for 30 minutes, but I dragged on and took 2 weeks to color this. Click to go back
From a melancholic time, and from listening to “Spider and I” by Brian Eno on repeat. Click to go back
The coloration here is reminiscent of the color palette I imagine when listening to some Bowie songs. Click to go back
The Aorta of the World
The colors took way too long to settle.
I have had this sketch for a while (see the date on it), and while I liked the two fish at the left and the bird, the whole thing was kind of ruined by the goofy looks on two of the fish in the middle. And so to make them more presentable, I took out their eyes… Click to go back
3/22/2016 commission. The creature’s name is Beta. Click to go back
This was first worked upon in 2013 and nearly finished in early 2014, but I did not touch up and the colors and release this until April 2016. This gets its name from how in its earlier stages the head was green. This progress animation illustrates what I mean about the green:
Some of the chaos from that time. Click to go back
Comes from early listens to the album Taking Tiger Mountain (by Strategy) by Brian Eno. The sketch’s name comes from another of Eno’s albums, Another Green World. Click to go back
This one was made to break another hound-drawing drought. First experiment with outlined teeth.
Ester and Estre
These two dogs have little in common, but they were drawn in the same timeframe. Ester Estre
More practicing with the cintiq. I’ve really wanted to do watercolor-like scenes. A slightly more desaturated version: And finally a version that shows off the lineart better:

A general menagerie, I was probably listening to Another Green World during this. Click to go back
Listened to My Life In the Bush of Ghosts during this… trying to diversity my eel-like subject. Click to go back . .
Sketches from my freshman year of undergrad. Honestly these aren’t all that better from my pre-college days… these were the most presentable ones.
Sketches from my senior year of undergrad.
Sketches from my junior year of undergrad. “Coelacanth Studies”
Sketches from my sophomore year of undergrad.
These can be pretty dire, but then again they’re from my pre-college times…
First serious try on the Cintiq.
A rather cut-and-dry example of my natural style, I drew this dog after spending so long keeping myself away from drawing on paper to work on Astral Candy, a more protracted illustration project. You could say this was made to see if I could still draw at all. – – – This picture also has an earlier, alternate coloring. I almost continued to work on this version until I realized I already use this scheme a lot.
Hmm, I think purple must be a color I associate with the subconscious for now.
A not-too-stable dog with sloughing fur…
Ears upon ears upon ears
I think the biggest problem here is having lit flames by the oil, but oh well.
Spontaneous and stylistically related to Deer with Bird Fly-By.
A little gumdrop explores a world. More later…
Well, it’s mainly Scout.

Oh no, what is the mouse up to this time?!?
Listening to music often begets new creatures.
There has to be a first for everything, and drawing Enressar took a lot of my firsts.
This tree is absolutely the oldest thing here.
A spin-off from my Yellow Deer, the Red Deer was painted as opposed to lined.
Borovan Day 2012
Accepted to an art gallery on my 20th birthday.
A spectral deer with an equally dream-like bluebird.
A very tired Scout, and a rare instance of me drawing a person.
In a phase where I referred to a drawn dog as a ‘doggu’, this was born.
A quick-and-dirty reptilian picture made in a day.
A principal figure in my teenagehood imagery.
