New Ripley/Alien Prints

New Ripley/Alien Print!

This piece is for my dear friend Ellen- keep going, keep fighting.

I wanted try to create a tribute to the 1979 Alien film but I felt that the soft romantic Art Nouveau style that I love wouldn’t be appropriate. But the style of Aubrey Beardsley and H.R. Giger’s Xenomorphs had a certain harmony.

Knowing that both artist studied architecture I found inspiration for the composition in the depictions of St George in church windows.

I will have a limited number of A3 posters of this piece at Oz Comic-con Melbourne on July 1-2. Find me at Table 66 near the “Comic District”.


“Mermay” Eel Mermaid Sketch

I didn’t want to May to finish before I did at least one #mermay drawing! This is a blue color pencil and pen sketch of eel like mermaid concept that might feature in the comic I’ve started.

I think I still need to refine the character more working on the balance of alluring but frightening.


Niffler Plush Toy For Sale

NEW Niffler plush for sale!

***SOLD***

This cute little thief loves to collect shiny treasure and comes holding on to his newest find, a bright gold coin. Inspired by the fantasy creature Nifflers from Fantastic Beasts and Harry Potter this plush sits at approx. 22cm (8 ½ inches) tall and 15cm (6 inches) at the widest part of the body. His small size makes him perfect to hold and squeezable polyfill stuffing makes him great to cuddle.

The Niffler is made from soft black and light pink fleece with back plastic safety eyes and hand-stitched nose holes. He holds in his paws a oversized plastic gold coin securely attached to each arm.
Please note that the other coins and shiny beads in the photos are for decorative purposes and are not included with the plush.

All of my plush toys are made with love in a smoke free home.

Each plush is carefully package in a cotton drawstring bag, boxed and sent via Australia Post. Tracking on international postage is available.

Please contact me through my Etsy Shop if you have any questions regarding shipping.


Godzilla Plush

I designed and made this cute little Godzilla plush as a Christmas present for a friend who has everything. The plush would be roughly 30cm tall (I forgot to measure the finished plush once it was finished) made from grey-ish green fleece with grey felt claws and back spikes. There are plastic “beans” in the feet and bottom to help him sit up right and give him weight. The eyes are made with embroidered gold glitter felt.

I am thinking of simplifying this pattern to make smaller Godzilla plushies to sell in my shop and at my upcoming events.


Pair of Red & Gold Wedding Lion Dance Plush Toys

I was honoured to be asked to create a pair of Lion Dance plushies for a friend’s sister’s wedding. I am particularly proud of these toys, not only because I think they turned out really well but because I had only a week to make them both!

Made in lucky red and gold they are approx. 20cm long based on my existing pattern but with extra large heads to make them more “chibi”.
Like the previous lions they have silver faux leather mirrors on their foreheads and red felt “fringe” embroidered on the body and legs.
For these plushies I included extra pom pom details to the nose and head. The feet have been re-enforced with plasticard for balance and stability.

The plush lions were presented to the bride and groom in a very special lion dance performance.


Custom Cookie Monster Plush

A special secret commission for a friend at the end of last year. A cookie monster for a wonderful kooky monster 😀

Made from bright blue faux fur he sits roughly 25cm (10in) tall holding a embroidered felt chocolate chip cookie. The mouth is black felt reinforced with card and the eyes are ping-pong balls.

I love his tufts of fur on his fingers and toes.

Chinese New Year Little Red Lion Plush

Happy Chinese New Year! Here is a little red Lion Dance plush I was commissioned to make last year that I never shared 🙂

The pattern was based on the previous Lions that I made only smaller. The plush is roughly 20cm long made from high quality fleece with felt details and embroidery.

The commissioner requested that the family name on the belly (not shown).
The name is machine cut from professional quality vinyl (vivid flex heat transfer vinyl) in black on white jersey material.

Other elements of the designs include:
– Silver faux leather Mirror on the forehead
– Pom pom nose details
– Plasticard re-enforced feet for balance and stability
– Black felt “fringe” on the body and legs.

 


Beautiful Monsters Watercolors – Werewolf

Two dear friends (thank you Ellen and Dave) have encouraged me to start up my “Beautiful Monsters” watercolor series again after abandoning it a few years ago. I had planned out the paintings but never saw them through. The concept for “Werewolf” made an appearance in my Inktober sketches this year.

And now the completed painting joins “Vampire” and “Siren”. I have two other monsters from my initial sketches that I hope will be realized soon.

Grumbacher watercolors, micron pen on 300gm fine grain cold pressed.


Bonus Inktober 2016 Time lapse Video !

Bonus Inktober 2016 Time lapse Video!

I wasn’t able to get this video posted before the end of Oct but I thought I would still share it. Learning from my first video – the camera is moved to my left side so the drawing isn’t covered by my hand and I’ve tried to have more light. Nearly all of my inktober drawing were done after I finished everything else for the day meaning they were done often late into the night.

The video has been sped up 16x to show a little over half and hour of inking. My tools for all of my inktober drawings-Castell XF 0.7 mechanical pencil, Mircon pens on toned paper and A3 LED light pad.

I hope to share more process videos in the future and perhaps some tutorials as well.
