“Spooky,” just under 4″ x 4″. I haven’t decided, yet, whether to sell or keep it. I like this bird, even more than I like other birds, which is rather a lot.

This bird belongs to Lauren K. Cannon, whose art should also interest anyone who’s interested in mine. Its name is Spooky. But if it were my bird, its name would be Sunbeam, because it always looks very happy and full of life, and I smile whenever I see it.

I wanted to draw this bird because of its cheerful appearance, and because its cere has a cool shape, with these big, perfectly round nostrils, right above the beak, and I was all “man, that shape should be echoed ALL OVER THAT BIRD, like an excellent cloak of nostrils.” Well, eh…I know a cloak of nostrils doesn’t sound very good, but I hope the picture conveys my vision better than my words do.

We are ready for spring!


“We are ready for spring!”, 2.5″ x 2.5″, $250–e-mail me at socar@gorblimey.com, if you want to buy this. Miniatures make excellent gifts, because you can really put them anywhere: on your bedside table, on your desk at work, in your wallet, on your fridge–you don’t need a big house, or a lot of extra room, to start collecting art. You should totally get this. It would look great on your whatever.

Or, y’know, wait a couple of weeks, and you’ll be able to buy a whole book of my miniatures for like $20, instead of spending $250 on just one. Why’d I just say that? Am I stupid?

Anyway, I’m tired of winter, and I like birds, even though they have stupid-looking feet.

…it really tied the whole room together. 🙁

The Crone Imperiall


“The Crone Imperiall,” about 8 inches high – sold

Ages and ages ago, when I was in high school, I played in the first violin section of the Cambridge County Youth Orchestra. One concert, we had to play a march by, eh…ah…William Walton, I think. At the top of the sheet music, it said “In beawtie berying the crone imperiall.”
…the crone imperiall.

The CRONE imperiall.

Crone. Crone. Tee-hee.

Well, I was like 12 or 13, or something. You can’t blame me for laughing.

Let me try this again!

This is the bloggy part of my website. I used to have a proper blog, here, with loads of posts, and sketches, and works-in-progress, and whatnot. You know, the usual things artists have on their blogs. Then, I deleted it by accident, while I was updating the rest of my site. I tried to resurrect it, as part of my new site, but the template I used was too confusing, and I couldn’t figure out how to make an update.

This is my new, idiot-proof blog. Prepare for updates!
