"The Nest"

An adventurous Kis-Kis got more than he bargained for when he ventured into the nest of an alien bug queen. But, no sooner than he realized the danger he was in, the queen was no longer asleep and she was looming behind him…

"My best friend is my cat"

Yup, title pretty much sums that up. 

Here's a pic of Norman Reedus, and his gorgeous cat, Eye in the Dark!

WIP ~ Progress...

A nest full of eggs...


So, space bunnies vs. cats will be placed on the back-burner for another day. 

This idea popped into my head and I couldn't resist sketching it out and see where it would take me. It features a giant alien insect queen, and a poor little Kis-Kis who stumbled into her nest during an adventure.

Sketchbook Corner #26

WIP sketches of an October show called "Not of this World."  It will feature the galactic battle-- space bunnies VS. space cats-- over planet Nesagi.

Yes, that's a space gun in the shape of a carrot.

And here's something totally different.

A quick sketch of Norman Reedus from The Walking Dead, with his little furball, Eye in the Dark. I'll be painting a final version of this piece real soon!

"I ain't cryin'..."

A special thanks to @magraphx for the Bethyl request with a reunion theme. She wanted my version of what Beth and Daryl's reunion will be like in Season 5 of the Walking Dead---and here it is! 

I saw the trailer for Season Five, and Beth was wearing scrubs and had a cast on her hand, so there will be some injuries sustained during her ventures away from the protection of her group. But Beth's a tough cookie, so she'll work out a way to escape from her predicament. 

I'm hoping Beth will have picked up enough grit from Daryl to tough it out at the Hospital where she appeared to be held hostage. I imagine at the climax of her grand escape, she would've done most of the work of fighting off Walkers and Daryl only shows up at the last minute to lend a hand.

Happy Reunion!


Daryl: "I ain't cryin'...Just got some dirt in my eyes, okay?"

Beth: "Whatever you say, Mr. Dixon."
