Sketch Dailies: The Bride of Frankenstein.
I’ve been off the Sketch Dailies train for longer than I’d like, and have barely touched Inktober, but better late than never.

In preparation for the Journey piece I made for Desert Bus, I made this little bookmark to establish a palette and make sure the techniques I was going to use would work.  It worked pretty nicely, so I put some spray-on varnish on to it to protect it.  I used a couple very light coats initially to keep the watercolor and gouache from running, then a couple heavier coats to seal the deal.

Desert Bus 8 Craft-Along II: The Handy Wasteland Survivor’s Secret Weapon.
Is your laser rifle not firing straight anymore?  Find another one, tape the two together, and hope the resulting mess works better.  Maybe if they taped two buses together, the Desert Bus would drive straight?
In addition to my “Journey” piece, I’ve also submitted “Maintenance,” based on Bethesda’s “Fallout 3.”  Dust and desolation seems to be the unifying theme this year.  It is 14”x11”, painted with India ink on Rives BFK printmaking paper.
This year Desert Bus starts on Friday, November 14th, at 10 am PST, and continues until the donations and duration formula collide.

Desert Bus 8 Craft-Along I: A Walk in the Park.
It’s almost Desert Bus time again, and the craft-along gears have churned until the last minute.  In preparation for Loading Ready Run’s grueling give-grind of the marathon, I’ve readied another two paintings for the auction block.  All proceeds go to Child’s Play, and help to provide entertainment to brighten the stay of children in hospital.
"Ochre and Umber," the first painting I’ve prepared, is based on thatgamecompany’s gorgeous "Journey.”  It is 11”x14”, painted with watercolor and gouache on Opus Watermedia paper.Photographed by Mike the Magnificent of Alchemist Studios.

Mega Fauna Creature Cards: Chirping Crib Lurker
There’s less than a week left in cloudscapecomics Mega Fauna Kickstarter! We’re getting close, but aren’t quite there yet.  This particular critter might not make it into the creature cards deck, but I thought I’d share it anyway. 
The Chirping Crib Lurker feeds on imps and fairies that plant nightmares in children.  Highly valued by parents that like to sleep, their tent silk is often collected to weave a scarf or cravat for the child’s wedding.  
Also, more limbs equals more cuddly, right?

Mega Fauna Creature Cards: Rockatrice.
Part of the Mega Fauna Kickstarter is a collection of pokemon-esque creature cards from various artists. My contribution is the Rockatrice, a music lover with narrow tastes and a reputation as a dangerous heckler.Submissions are still open for the cards until September 1st, so hopefully I’ll be able to slop some more paint around for a second one.
