When Veggies Attack!

I am going to make a bold statement...I HATE VEGETABLES!  There are very few vegetables that I actually enjoy eating and those I can count on one hand.  They all seem to taste either bitter or like dirt...neither of those tastes I enjoy.  This is from a dream I had where I was the only human left in a world overrun with killer vegetables.  Actually, I am going to categorize that as a full fledged nightmare.  Vegetables are evil and must die.  Viva la Resistance!

Gift of the Vagi

This was my boyfriend and I's 2016 Christmas card.  Every year I design a Christmas card to send out to all our friends & family and they all seem to have a religious theme.  Not being at all religious, this is a bit of a mystery.  I think I like to poke fun of religion because they often take themselves way to seriously.  I am not sure how my religious friends enjoy receiving our cards, but honestly, I don't really ask.  AMEN

Making Horcruxes At Work

I have a very stressful job because I work with some very..."intense" personalities.  One particular personality causes me to think of things like this during the day while he/she is giving me my daily dressing down for no particular reason.  This has caused me to come to the realization that, if there was such a thing as Harry Potter type magic (because it is the best portrayal of magic ever) I would for sure be a dark wizard because I wouldn't be able to restrain myself from using the unforgivable curses.  Not because I am bad, but because they are effective and convenient.

Good Bye, Beatrix

This is a tribute to my dog and companion, Beatrix, who passed away at the end of 2016.  She crossed over the rainbow bridge into another realm...I am assuming Asgard, because how many rainbow bridges can there possibly be in the universe?!  She is probably the faithful companion of Thor or Loki.  I am sure it is Loki, because she was one mischievous bitch. HA!

I miss you Beatrix. I think about you everyday.

The Four Cats of the Catpocalypse

BEWARE, THE END IT NIGH and their coming shall unleash a great apocalypse upon your household. Your plants will suffer, your food will be eaten, your dogs will be set upon and your favorite shoes will be ruined. They know no mercy in their relentless pursuit of chaos. Beware!

This is a digital reworking of a previous concept I did in color pencil.  I added a background as well to give it a more "apocalyptic" feel.

Suicide Bear

Sometimes I am just sick in the head when an idea for a drawing comes to me, but at the same time they can turn out to be poignant and have a strong social message .  I have no idea why or what made me think of this image, but it came fully formed one night when I was falling asleep.  I apparently mumbled SUICIDE BEAR before I fell asleep.  Luckily my boyfriend asked me the next morning what that meant and I was fortunate enough to remember this image.

Raining C**ts and Dogs

Sometimes, I can't stop my brain from thinking up some really....odd images, to say it in the kindest way.  There are large portions of my day where I am doing one thing and while that is happening, my brain decides to go on a daydream trip and images like this pop into my head.  Why am I cursed with the sight?!  Ok, that last part was probably because I have been binge watching "Angel" lately.  This piece has another title, but I normally keep it low key as it involves a certain emotionally taxing personality in my life.
