Sherlock and Mycroft doodle by littlecrow
Sherlock and Mycroft doodle
When they were kids, Sherlock would crawl into Mycroft’s bed if he had a bad dream. Of course, if Sherlock was in Mycroft’s bed, then Redbeard would want to be there, too.

Sailor Moon, Ukiyo-e Style by littlecrow
Sailor Moon, Ukiyo-e Style

Prints available here.

Next project completed: the Sailor Scouts done in the style of traditional Japanese woodblock prints! (circa late 1700s)

I had already researched ukiyo-e in college once to write a (very bad) paper, but it was fun to go back and do it again. TBH I thought this would be a quick, easy thing to rattle off, but the simple look og traditional-style Japanese art is deceptive. Like much of Japanese aestheticism, it’s about taking something that actually takes a lot of skill and effort, and making it look easy and elegant. Lesson learned.

Sailor Moon, Sailor Venus and Sailor Mars are based off of everyday fashions for courtesans, Sailor Mars is based off of the traditional shrine maiden (miko), and Sailor Jupiter is based off of onna-bugeisha, or female warriors. The ponytail is traditionally a boy’s hairstyle, but I mean it’s Sailor Jupiter, she has to have a ponytail. The word on Sailor Moon’s obi (belt) says moon, the word on Sailor Mars’ jacket says fire, and the little bunnies on Sailor Moon’s kimono are because kind of like how we say there’s a man in the moon, in Japan they say there’s a rabbit on the moon, and the Japanese show is full of rabbit puns. (for instance, Sailor Moon’s Japanese name literally means rabbit)

Etc.

I originally had this coloured in a much more muted colour scheme more in line with the actual colours of the traditional woodblock prints, but it was getting difficult to recognize the figures for who they were, so I saturated them and matched them closer to the cartoon colour scheme to make them more identifiable.

She Hulk - We Can Do It! by littlecrow
She Hulk - We Can Do It!

She Hulk is awesome and I loved the recent Pulido run to death. Based, of course, on this now-famous motivational poster.

Available as a print over on my redbubble. Please note this is formatted at 11x17, which is a slightly less common frame size than the more widely available 11x14.

Agent Carter by littlecrow
Agent Carter

So I hear Agent Carter isn’t getting very good ratings, and that’s really stupid cause it’s an excellent show! So here’s some fan art! Everyone make fan art! Let’s spread the love!

If you are so inclined, I made this available as a sticker over at redbubble. They’re printed approximately 4”x3” and can be put outside, apparently.

Interests
Sorry for the inactivity. Been having difficulties lately, as well as being crazy busy. Have lots of ideas for things in my head, but with everything that's going on it's very difficult to find the time and motivation to actually put pencil to paper.

Just had a crazy weekend at the calgary comic expo. They had crazy awesome guests there this year and we had the funds to grab some autographs: Linda Hamilton, (yay!) Sylvester McCoy, (super funny old dude) John Rhys Davies, (who gave a surprisingly entertaining panel) Lena Heady and Peter dinklage, (well, friends of mine got those ones) the voice actor for invader zim who tragically I have forgotten the name of... And Wil Wheaton, who is the nicest guy on the face of the planet. I wish I could apologize to each one for just standing there grinning like an idiot the whole time, particularly to wil wheaton who made me especially nervous because I am such a huge fan, but I'm sure they get that all the time and understand people get nervous. At least I hope so. It's been really awesome to watch our little expo grow from a little event with a handful of guests to this giant awesome thing with a crapload of awesome celebrities.

What else. The weather is warming up and I can't help feel a tiny bit sad... I get hay fever in the summer and I am sorry, I hate the heat and the sun. Not that it's exactly fun stomping through foot high snowdrifts with a stroller all winter... It's just more comfortable. I feel like I'm the right temperature, and my eyes don't feel like I've been sand papering them.

Ugh! Watched part of the movie Sicko last night and it made me upset. I feel cranky enough not having basic dental and eye care covered in Canada. I couldn't imagine not having basic health care. And it makes me angry and frightened because it seems my provincial government wants to attempt to model our healthcare off of the American system. Under which people like me would be completely screwed. Whatever. I'll brush up on my French and move to Quebec, I guess. Haha!

Hi. Would you be interested in collaborating on a Doctor Who fan project? Totally non-commercial, of course, as I've no intention of upsetting the BBC. You'd get points for your effort tho! Please look at [link] for details. Thanks for your time.
