C is for Cockatrice and Cyclops

My two entries for Alphabeasts, I drew these in my sketchbook without internet access so I just went with the beasts I could remember. Ink and watercolour.

Porcelain Inkwell Head

Ceramics on my sketch blog? It's more likely than you think!
When my ink runs low I have to fish around at an angle to get enough ink on my nib and I usually end up covering my pen and hands. So I created this inkwell which is just deep and wide enough for my biggest nibs. Here it is with ink:
And one of it in action for scale:
Hand sculpted in porcelain clay by me with a transparent glaze by my pottery teacher mum.

B is for Bannik

A Bannik for Alphabeasts. Pen and ink and photoshop. Will I manage to do all 26? Maybe, but I might have to do a few sketchier ones.

A is for Alan

I did an Alan for Alphabeasts, where you draw fantastical creatures for the each letter of the alphabet.

According to wikipedia Alans like to collect menstrual blood or other reproductive waste and transform them into human children, whom they then raise as their own. So not only do they have an awesome name they also provide an important service.

Tea Runner, Poofy Hair, Coffee Table Disaster and Headphones Dancer

The first three are sketchbook drawings and the last one I did for the background of my mp3 player. What sort of massive egotist has a picture of themselves as a background? *points to self* This massive egotist!
