Behind the Scenes

Posted on

I seem to be moving at glacier speed while creating this side project, so I thought I would post a couple behind the scenes pictures and explain what it is I am making.

The Cunning Crow is a fan-fic Newspaper I started making, drawing from my favorite books and TV shows and reporting on them as if they were real. I have Gardening With Samwise Gamgee and Tool Care with Thor. Or, I just make up news that I think is cool, like Mountain Trolls causing trouble in B.C.

The Newspaper will be completely free, and just more of a passion project that I hope other nerds will love as much as I do.

sophiesI even made a classifieds section, and here are a couple ads, one promoting a Terraformed planet that Mimics actual places, like Vegas does. The other one is for Sophie’s Millinery, a shout out to Miyazaki.

 

 

The entire en-devour is to  be creative, to push the imagination, create a fun world to slip into.

Hopefully I will post more on this soon!!



Happy Creating Everyone!

I’m continuously updating this as I find more and more articles about parenting and working on your art.

Working and parenting win! *falls to a heap on the floor and sleeps*

Me & Babe working away!

Managing to catch a few minutes here and there to “work” has been a lifeline. Any new parent knows that it is ridiculously hard to do anything AT ALL. I look at these pictures of myself, and they make me feel good, that I was lucky to catch 15-20 minutes of work time to get shit done.  Being a new mom is frickin hard, but I have never been so in love, creatively challenged, out of the comfort zone, inspired, awed, transformed and so many more verbs. It has been the best thing that could ever happen to me, for all the normal, obvious reasons, but, because I am writing on my art blog, I want to emphasize what it has done for my work.

Sleeping babe? Bust out the keyboard and work!

While everything takes longer to create, I respect the time so much more. I write more freely, read more non-fiction & short stories, study, learn, absorb & focus so much more than before. I have made more digital art than ever before, and I think Bebe has made me MORE creative, using bold bright colours (babies apparently see bold, contrasting colours better) & making collages like I did when I was younger. That was something I never expected to happen, mostly cuz I AM SO TIRED.  Here’s to being a parent!!  ALSO NOTE: on the flip side of all this creative genius flooding in, the house is a mess, I am a mess, and I have forgotten….everything? Yes, that must be it. Everything.

The lovely Felicia Day posted a parenting win of breast milk. What was really great were all the moms commenting, it was all so nice lol! Breastfeeding is fuckin hard so I’m always in awe of other moms that do it like a boss.

The Muses

Posted on

IMG_20170331_060650_719Lately, I have been trying to find information on the The Muses, the Greek Gods of the Arts. There is surprisingly very little out there, even though it has been the artists crutch/inspiration for hundreds of years. I research a lot behind the scenes for my books and art pieces, and this one quickly becoming a time consuming conquest. The reason I set off down this road was because I have never created so much art as I have with Roland. Starting in the last half of my pregnancy I have started or finished 40 different artworks (short stories, book projects, photos, digital art) and I thought hmmm Ro is my Muse! Then I thought I should write or make an art piece on the Muse….and here I am, reading a dissertation from 1993, which may be the best info I have found yet lol!! Anyway, if anyone out there knows a good book on muses, even a fiction/fantasy let me know!
