From gods to dogs….

This week I worked on a small series of dog paintings. I wanted to have a recent example of what my pet portraits can look like and to also have some available on hand for the upcoming holiday season. If you have a request for a specific breed consider ordering a custom painting or shoot me an email with any questions at info@ornaglyphology.com.

Totally New Awesome Radical Stuff!

I finally put 4 new paintings in the store. These are all small paintings that I created to carry around with me to festivals. There are more coming. I also knocked off $5 off my older paintings that are on paper.

One thing I have been experimenting with is putting my ornaglyphic writing on the backgrounds instead of in thought bubbles. I like this approach because it could still represent the characters thoughts or it could represent what’s going on around the character….or it could be awesome wallpaper…or……what do you think? This is now an option for custom portraits as well because it looks cool but not everyone wants a cartoon panel painting. Talk to me if you want to order a custom….info@ornaglyphology.com

Lola La-La-La-La Lola

20 Nov

This is the oldest cat from my family (she lives with my parents). Lola is a Bengal. She was the runt of her litter so she is tiny but quite ferocious. She loves attention and is very jealous. If you pick her up and say “kiss” she will bump her nose on your nose…she likes to do this three times in a row, but if you do it more she will bite your nose (then she’ll put her paw on your cheek and dig her claws in a little in case you decide to put her down). When I would get home from school we used to play this game where I would chase her into my parents room then go back to the living room and she would slowly come out and when she got close I would chase her again. Lola is best friends with my middle sister and I am using this painting to blackmail her into visiting me in Chicago (my family lives in New Hampshire).

One more thing: One time Lola jumped on my face in the middle of the night, when I was asleep. Having a cat jump on your face when you are dead asleep is one of the most disturbing things you could wake up too. I freaked out and her natural instinct was to claw my face. When I got up the next day I had streaks of dried blood running down my face.

This is really Birdorable!

24 Sep

A couple days ago I was surfing the web, checking out other sites that offer coloring books, and came across this great website called Birdorable. Arthur and Amy have created a large collection of birds (drawn in the style that you see in this image) which can be purchased on all kinds of merchandise (and many of them are quite humorous). They also include a blog, free educational coloring pages, desktops, e-cards, and more. And they also donate money to various bird-related causes.

Works In Progress

19 Sep

These are 3 pet portraits that I’m working on. A Bengal cat named Lola, a Chihuahua named Titan and a Pomeranian named Bear. They are pretty much complete, I just have to give them pupils add the captions and fix a few minor mishaps (I have a tendency to smudge). For Bear the panel was too small to really add a cartoon bubble so I am going to add the writing to the background which is something I do sometimes.
