1. Wanted to spread the word about Dwolla, because they charge a maximum of $0.25 per transaction (and FREE for payments under $10!!) instead of a percentage like paypal. I want Dwolla’s practices to become the standard, so we don’t have to lose a portion of our earnings just for getting paid online.

    Reblog if you’d rather lose $0.25 than 3% of your freelance paycheck

    I’m a part of this art book! My first time joining this sort of thing. It’ll be kickstarted next week. I can’t wait to see what everybody illustrates! 

    And I’ve got 74 artists’ websites to scour o_o

     
  6. I’m gonna bore everybody with a years-old sculpture, but it’s a new paint job I haven’t tumbled yet and I caught some nice sunset on her today.

    Her new owner hasn’t come to pick her up yet, I dread saying goodbye…

  7. Gesture series from a great moment in Short Term 12. More to come on this one, WIP

     
  8. Prism Princess! Feeling inspired by all the pretty pretty princesses out there. Kept the inverted version in cause it reminded me of those black crayon scratch-away drawings we did as kids… remember that?

     

  9. My friends at Mold3D interviewed me recently.  We talked about my career in the VFX industry, as well as my time sculpting collectibles.  I haven’t spoken much about such things since this blog has been about my focus on drawing. Please check it out though if you’re interested :)

     
  10. Wishing for summer weather!

     
  11. Just cause it made me laugh, here’s a sour puss Kirsten Dunst

     
  12. Rust! Rustin Cohle of True Detective. I didn’t do you justice so let’s call it a “study”. You deserve a much more fucked up grizzled drawing. Maybe next time.

     
  13. Mermaids! Developed the mermaid from my Hipster Black Beard sketch daily http://executeyk.tumblr.com/post/75589066419/  I considered implying that she drowned the hipster and ate him…well, consider it implied
