A superhero commission from over the holidays!

6 Jan

FullSizeRender

I’ve mostly been working on #dayjob stuff these days (okay that is never not true lets be real), and an attempt at a longer project that may or may not come to fruition, BUT I couldn’t resist doing this Xmas present for a friend, because i never get to draw superheroes and it’s totally weird (so many strange muscles in all the places!), and also the couple that nerds together stays together.

This witch eats the rich

24 Nov

Still drawing witches! Drew this one for a friend who wanted a punky witch with a black cat familiar. All my favorite witches are punk as fuck anyway.

Back to Constance Classen: “The poisonous reek of the witch was an intensified form of the foul odor attributed to women in general. The cold wetness of the female body was imagined to predispose it to putridity. Not only did women corrupt others through their sensuality, therefore–they were themselves in a continuous state of decay.”

PUNK. AS. FUCK.

Did this Patsy Cline for a dear friend–I love doing these small commissions that push me to do portraits (a pretty new challenge!)–and I love that the last two portraits I’ve gotten are my two favorite country artists! Queens of my world.

39 Melachot

Drew this list of the 39 melachot (categories of work forbidden on Shabbat) for a friend! I will hopefully be appearing in a Shabbat zine in the near future. Get psyched for the Sabbath, yidn. If you’re interested in the history and interpretation of these, the Torah Tots breakdown is good for babies like me.
