“Splatoon Art Books” Cedar Park, 2024

I finally own the Splatoon 2 & 3 art books! Long ago I saw them at Kinokuniya and didn’t buy them, and kind of regretted it. This last holiday, I saw them in the store again and was about to buy them but Mariko said that she could order them for about half the price from Japan. Sure enough, they were only 2,000 yen each, vs $45 US. It just took a few weeks to arrive, but I am very happy! The art is so cool. I love the Splatoon aesthetic so much!

“Emotes” Cedar Park, 2023

I spent some time today crafting a pair of emotes for my Twitch channel. While I commissioned an artist to create one for me last week, I decided to try my hand at making my own. I’m pleased with how my initial attempts turned out! The next step involves working through my emote list and bringing the rest to life. Using Procreate on my iPad is really fun, and I’m excited about creating the entire set!

“Purple Sky” Cedar Park, 2023

I finally painted a purple sky that I like. It’s probably the fourth try! 😫 But I also found a blue-green that I like for the mountains. Next up is the foreground and then some clouds, and I also need to think about the stars. Fun fun fun.

“Purples” Cedar Park, 2023

Working on the sky portion of a painting, I am trying to recreate some of the purples I saw in Lilo & Stitch.

They’re close, but not quite what I want. So I’ve done some research (on Youtube of course) and ordered the colors of acrylic paint that hopefully will get me there.
