Preparing my last set of prints for Illuxcon! I have been using the rotary cutter at Miller Blueprint for half an hour and now I am in love with it.

I’m going to Illuxcon too! (Saturday and Sunday)
Oh awesome, that’s right! I knew there was someone else who was going but couldn’t recall it. That’s exciting! Do you have a showcase table or no? I have one, so if you aren’t busy with your own then I’ll be findable there :)

Wait, you’re going to IlluXcon also? I may run into you.
What!! Let’s make this happen! I am there Weds thru part of Monday :)
I FUCKING LOVE THIS. Would you consider selling prints?
Thanks so much, I’m psyched you love it that much! I’m going to be having prints made of this for Illuxcon and will doubtless have some left over to sell online. I can also list it as an on-demand print, but the one I print in person will be color-checked, so I think that will be a nicer version :)
I’ll be selling a bunch of leftover prints in late September, probably!
My most recent illustration from my Firebloods project! Firebloods is a fantasy story involving rising conflict between humans and dragons, set in a roughly Renaissance-level tech era. Said human culture is in the midst of putting gunpowder to military use, though the only means they currently know by which to obtain it is from the remains of dragons. They do this in ignorance of just how sentient dragons are- and might be surprised to know how closely some dragons are watching their actions.
Adecia, the country where most of the story takes place, has a largely Mesoamerican-inspired culture basis, and the environment in Adecia is based on the local landscape I’ve grown up around in Central Texas.
While Adecian culture is largely egalitarian in terms of gender (including having some third-gender roles), their traditional understanding of the natural world leads them to see some jobs or trades as more easily suited for men or women, though going against the precedent is not considered shameful. One of these is butchery, which women are thought to generally have a more natural skill for, as it is a profession ‘of the body’ and the handling thereof— along with such jobs as tanner, surgeon, doctor, animal handler, and precision-based military roles.

This illustration is taking even longer than expected (shhh I detail too much), so here’s another wip teaser pic!
Another WIP teaser from my current illustration! Making progress… hoping to wrap this up by the end of the week.

This is incredible and unique and oh so amazing!!
Oh gosh, thank you so much for the kind words! <3 That made my day :D
Sorry I haven’t had much to post lately! I’ve been knee-deep in larger-scale illustrations and stuff I can’t show. Soo… here’s a work in progress shot at 100% res from my current piece.
Uhm… enjoy? Maybe?
