Roxy decided that she needed to be in the photo
This makes me laugh so hard. Like a photobombing bird torpedo.
Congratulations on your recreation of the classic surrealist painting Man in a Bowler Hat by Rene Magritte (1964)
oh my god.

"I just wanted to thank Amy Poehler for being such a positive influence on my 12-year-old daughter. Because of Amy’s character on Parks and Rec, my Zoe took to the charge of a 7th grade anti-bullying campaign this year with Leslie Knope binder in hand (literally), and I am so proud of her for trying even though her group came in dead last. Zoe also was very determined to run for student council this year, and I am so proud of her for wanting to flaunt her inner Leslie even though she got completely and painfully overrun by the popular kids. Last week, she joined debate club and drama, and yesterday she brought home a special classroom art assignment that read, ‘100. You are a very gifted young lady! GREAT JOB!’ I just wanted to share it with you. Thanks for Smart Girls.
The art assignment, btw, was to draw a portrait of your favorite famous person.”
WE LOVE THIS!!

Figured it was time to update the brush set that I use, since a few people have asked and it’s been a few years. Since my last brush post, I’ve cut down on a lot of brushes that I never really used, but I’ve also found a ton of new ones (mostly Jaime Jones’, Shaddy Safadi’s, and Sergey Kolesov’s, along with making a bunch of my own).
Aaand not that anybody asked for a process video, but here’s a timelapse for that Corvo painting. It’s not the clearest (definitely never using livestream again uuugh), but hopefully it will give some insight on how I’ve been doing my paintings lately.
If the link for the brushes breaks for whatever reason, feel free to send me an ask and I’ll be sure to fix it!! Enjoy（ΦωΦ）

New paint plus an additional detail shot - it’s kind of a tall piece so it’s hard to really get tumblr to do it much justice. There’s a slightly bigger version of it you can see as a whole here.
Available as a new print in my Society6 shop.

I began making this work for the Animal/Advance exhibition at the beginning of the year. Initially three books were planned but due to academic commitments I could not complete the other two. The brief was pretty open so I wanted to do something that related to my Little Red Riding-Hood thesis last year. Basically the starting concept for the intended series was the use of werewolfism as a metaphor for puberty.
This makes sense because:
- Puberty = growth of androgenic hair
- The pattern of the menstrual cycle is traditionally linked with the moon
- Menstruation is linked to more angry/antisocial moods, similar to the werewolf’s lunar-induced episodes
For this reason I decided to use cut-outs to create a page-through mouth on the cover, which symbolically ‘bites’ the intended viewer upon picking up the book. After this the viewer goes into the mind of the wolf, past the surface layer of sheer hunger into the deeper levels of its consciousness as the ‘curse’ begins to take hold. The work of Angela Carter was a big influence, both in this work and my thesis. Her story “The Company of Wolves” is obviously a more sexual retelling of the Red Riding-Hood fable, and I wanted to play with that.
I wanted there to be an overarching theme of consumption – both with food and sexually. Unfortunately I could not show every page in the book but it is littered with the detritus of kills until the sexual images begin to dominate as one pages through the work.
