The Truth in Black and White

a panda's natural habitat is a newspaper factory. this explains how they've evolved such great natural camouflage.

Quantity to Achieve Quality

this is the third time i've painted this subject. my paintings of PBR are just like actual PBR... the more there are, the better they get.

Makes It Easier to Recognize Us In Paintings

i met this requester in person when he came to one of my concerts. he was wearing a brightly colored shirt and bow tie. but not this brightly colored shirt and bow tie. i do believe he has many. it's his "thing". as someone who has mismatched her shoes for about 8 years, i appreciate his commitment to personal branding.

The Height of Fashion Quo

i was going to feel vaguely sexist for putting a bow in this lemming's hair when the requester asked for a "girl lemming". then i realized the concept behind lemmings is that they have no originality or individual voice. so it's perfect that this girl lemming has a bow. duh. that's what all girl lemmings do.

A Very Average Dudegal

This Advice Is Sound (Even in the Vacuum of Space)

the fifth painting in my geek-themed series. if you ever find yourself as a storm trooper, you'd better assert yourself. and take off that helmet. also, say your own name as much as you can. and do it fast because you were created to be anonymous and ready to be lasered.

Armed Geek

geek-themed painting number three of six. but don't tell him i said that. i don't want to get stabbed.

Enlarged to Show Texture

number two of six in my geek-themed series. they are not to scale compared with each other. otherwise this snitch would take up 1% of the canvas in order to be the right size for yesterday's tardis.

I've Never Typed Platypus So Much in My Life

this is a duck-billed platypus. are there other types of platypuses that we must specify he is duck-billed?? are there elephant-trunked platypuses? wolf-snouted platypuses? human-nosed platypuses? his feet look ducky, too, so why not duck-footed platypus? how about a dollar-billed platypus? or a duck-and-cover platypus? what about a platypus-billed platypus?

Four Purses and Two Trunks

a second version for the requester that commissioned something very similar to this a few days ago. i don't blame her. who can ever get enough elephants with penguins and hedgehogs in purses?

i decided she looks better without my usual black outlines. i hope she agrees. i mean, the less lines on a lady's face, the better, right?
