Cyberpunk Icons: The Courier

I'm a huge fan of Cyberpunk. Steampunks can get off my Nanolawn, a wetware jack to the grid and everything made out of mirror shades is what makes my heart sing. In the last few books I've read, the character of the Courier is a common icon. Usually young, female, smart and fast. She has a unique mode of transportation and gets things places. My courier here loves in-line blades and is a little addicted to goggledrugs.
Who next? (Speed-paint in photoshop. Currently reading REAMDE.)

A fantastical 2011!


happiest to you!

(this was drawn to express my deep artistic sentiment that even grown up little girls still want Pegasus horse buddies.)

Shake like an Eathquake!!!

Here's the second in my Cavebabes series,

Finding a way to make the gal and the dino positioned together, without dominating or running over each other was the toughest part.
Also... the color was very tough. I wanted it to feel trompy. I think it does now.
Everything is tough! I am an eternal student of Color and Shape! If I was a cavebabe, I think these are the gods I would tromp things for.

Fresh Art for the fall!

I've never really drawn dinosaurs before but I'm pretty sure this is what they looked like.
Color inspiration from old Tarzan paperback covers.
I want to do a series of these Cavegals. Triceratops is totally next.

Someone stole my bike, and it was sad.

I had no happiness engine.

They cut the chain and flitted it away.

Then my friends made a secret plan.

Now I feel like this:

The new bike's name is amigo.
Friendship beats Crime!

Enth used


I read a quote about enthusiasm that I can't track down now.
About how, as artists, it's out most precious resource, but we spend so much time destroying it. Bashing our industry, our work, our small successes. Tearing up and out the good things and hoarding the negative.
And then one day when we can't bring ourself to draw or make, we wonder where our passion for the art went.

Color on.

Some color on an IOPE spread. Just want to finish drawing it all so I can color it. That is where the bliss lies...

Have a bite...

My completed piece for the Girls Drawin' Girls book 2010. The theme is dessert, and my dessert was Brownies.
Eat the brownies, meet the Lavalady. :)

Flash inking, Photoshop colors. Enjoy!

And the Moth stole the Flame.

This is the piece I live-painted at the Do LaB's Lucent L'amour festival. I painted for 3.5 hours, and then got to dancedancedance. It sold at that very night at auction and the profits went to the Sonic Muze charity.

The combination of artmaking, music, and dancing made it a perfect night for me. I hope to be out paining under the stars again soon.

Hey you be merry.

That was a nice decade. I learned a lot.

Here's to the 10's and teens, hoping that I can learn just as much. :>

Take a Fall

On my pedal home yesterday, a freak Southern California windstorm tried to flatten me and put pieces of bark in my eyes.
These toothy leaf gliders aren't having that kind of problem.
They're gonna take this Fall for all it's worth.

No Room For Fear

What I learned at this year's burning man.

Time to set this one free. Been holding onto it for months.

I could only work on it when I was really riled up.

Touch Down.

I thought I should get a post up right quick about comic con 09. If I met or talked to you there, please drop me an e-mail! It's I want to stay connected. :)

I'm floored by the privilege of being able to get my art out to people I've never even met. If you got a sticker, a shirt, or shared your own art with me, Thank You!
Seeing the con from the other side of the table for my first time was a huge learning experience. I'm processing everything very slowly. I don't know what will come of it yet.

As a thanks to con-goers and all lovers of awesome, I've released the 2nd image in the Glowpocalypse set. She is the striker, the heat, the precise force. I'm keeping the final image under wraps. It's just for people who own one of the 25 sets. Hee!
Oh wait, that can be you. Get your piece of the puzzle here.

Favorite moments of the weekend? Getting to be in the presence of Miyazaki as he revealed a jaw-dropping PONYO clip, and the immersive walk-through of the old school TRON arcade and Light Cycle.

Make My Way

Here's a new one for Summer 09! Inspired by the graffiti murals I saw in shops in the Haight-Ashbury area of SanFran this memorial day. 
I've always been attracted to the ideas behind artcrime. Secret, bold creation under pressure with criminal consequences. Never put paint to a wall myself... but I might not refuse if the opportunity arose. 
It also connects to my belief in making my way to where I want to go by my own route and means, like this artist making the moon by climbing on a ladder she painted herself. 
Color is still what I enjoyed doing the most. 

This piece and 3 other of my favorites will be up for silent auction at the SDCC Art Show. It's up on the Sails pavilion. They will be all framed and snazzy and for the taking.
