This drawing depicts a convocation of various peoples (the bird people, different magical academics, etc.) whose job is to come up with solutions to various magical predicaments. You can see their focus here is a mermaid with part of a pillar stuck to her - an involuntary caryatid. The ogre is the helper of the convocation. There are some "secret" messages hidden in the pic, like that there is a book in the upper left depicting a convocation with instructions, and then at the right there is a parchment scroll depicting a convocation again and in that picture they're looking at a book like the one at top left. There's another message I don't think anyone will find! : )

My drawings involve a lot of malabranche and women (particularly in intricate, impractical outfits), with a healthy dose of bird people, descendants of lizards, ravenous female airships, two-headed little girls, monsters, nuns, religious imagery, the Geometric City, the Geometric Palace, and machinery.

I like to use micron pen 005, metal nib fountain pen, murano glass fountain pen, ballpoint pen, sharpie, koh-i-noor woodless colored pencils, colored pencils, oil pastels, acrylic paint, pencil, and charcoal. I like to make both tiny, tiny drawings, and paint murals and decorations on walls.
