"Supply Run," ink and colored pencil on grey paper

For my father-in-law’s recent birthday. He likes birds (yay!) and makes some very beautiful gemstone-inlaid drop spindles for my wife’s shop, so here’s a feathered friend getting him some stone chips with which to do that work 🙂

This is also drawn on grey paper instead of white. I got a pad of it for my birthday, and I LOVE it. It takes white colored pencil gorgeously.





Attention Western New York-ians!

"Tiny Spindle Thief," ink and colored pencil, 4x4 inches

For my Father in law this past Father’s Day.

He makes the spindles and other woodworked items for my Llady’s business and has a good respect for nature, so I ended up doing this…….and noticed a bit too late that the bird would be crazy tiny. But at that point I actually liked the idea, so it stayed as is.

4 by 4 inches, by the way, in ink and colored pencil.

"The Spindle Tree," 4 by 6 inches, colored pencil and ink

Drawn this past Yule for my my father in law, who makes gorgeous spindles for my llady’s shop.

My favorite part is actually those stones in the front ❤

Commission, "Hexadecimal masks," for Llady Llama Fiber Co.

Commission for my llady’s business, Llady Llama Fiber Co.

I’ve done a few logos for her before, but this time she needed clear drawings of these masks for a recent Phat Fiber contribution. The theme was Villains, and she chose Hexadecimal from the 90’s cartoon “Reboot.” I’m not that familiar with the series, but we watched some and I really enjoy this character.

She asked me to do the linework of the masks, then she took that and cleaned them up with color in the appropriate places, using the masks as stickers on the packaging for her fiber samples that month (as shown on the left).

This was definitely lots of fun to do.

Also, Llady Llama Fiber Co. will be vending at the Western NY Fiber Festival this weekend! Go check them out if you can. I think they’re pretty fantastic, myself 🙂
