A Suspicious Perch by socar
A Suspicious Perch
Just WHAT is that bird sitting on...?  A comfortably mossy stone? One of those dogs with so much hair you have to take the existence of their faces on faith? A water buffalo that forgot its horns? Let's hope it's not dangerous!

This picture is 1.5" x 2", shown here a little larger than life size.  It's hard to show such small pieces on the Internet; somehow, the scanning never does them any favours.  But, hey, I tried.
The Coif of Cthulhu by socar
The Coif of Cthulhu

Really, with the elder god on your head? What is that, the coif of Cthulhu?

Lips like a lamprey eel? It’s all right. Nobody’s perfect.
Face like squashed plasticine? Don’t worry. Age gets us all.
But you can afford a haircut. Yes. Get a haircut.

…uh, sorry, Internet. I don’t know. This was going to be a zombie. Something happened.

Sparrows Stole my Cufflinks! by socar
Sparrows Stole my Cufflinks!
This is a drawing I drew for ImagineFX issue 124 (August 2015), which is now available for UK customers, and very soon for everybody else. I wrote an article to go with it, about how I did it, which you can read by getting the magazine, so, y'know...get it. Because the world needs more pictures of house sparrows.  ;-)

(Also, the birds hid the cufflinks SOMEWHERE in the picture...well, they are pretty easy to find.  I didn't hide them that well.)

Ears! Ears! I have ears!
Small, not-pushy-at-all, reminder of where you can buy my work, should you feel so inclined: - Copies of "Horace Spiegelman Gets Made Redundant" are still available here, along with lots of lovely work by Agent Agnes. - Get your prints here...prints of many of my most recent pieces. As always, if there's something you want to see, which isn't there, tell me; I can probably put it there. (Birds of Lore prints will be available AFTER publication, though.)… - A few of my ORIGINALS are available here, AND there is a handy shopping cart thingy, so you don't even have to talk to me, in order to complete the transaction. - My own site, of course, also has originals for sale, and a wider selection. But it doesn't have a shopping cart, so you WILL have to e-mail me, if there's something you want. I take PayPal and Interac e-transfers. :-) - Prints of some of my older work can still be got, here.

There might be other stuff knocking about, that I've forgotten about--but this should suffice, for the blatant art-pushing.

Loving the book 'Fantasy Art Drawing Skills' in the bookstore.
I love your attention to the sketch book work, the underlying structural design and I see hints of a golden section being employed. Overall a magnificent book for young fantasy artists.

It's grand actually! I don't know yet when I'll have the time to really sit down with it, but just looking at your pictures is already very inspirational :) When I see great art I always get motivated!
