Here’s a quick sketch I did last night, despite being exhausted:
Month: October 2012

Continuing again with the Norse/Asatru/Heathen theme:
Rabbit Playing Bodhan Painting Oct. 2012
Completed this painting last night. Based on a tattoo I saw in a photograph:
Did the background last month with acrylic and glitter. Didn’t know which direction to go until recently. It’s a pity the scan doesn’t show the true beauty of this piece.
From what I understand, this tattoo is based on an ancient English illustration going back 500 years. It’s a rabbit playing a Celtic instrument called the bodhran. Enjoy.
UPDATE: Just found out that the tattoo is actually a hare playing the tabor. Oops.
UPDATE 1/22/2013: This painting has now been sold.
My Art In Filthy Cake Horror Anthology/Scary Art Publishing
I illustrated a sequential art story written by horror artist extraordinaire Nicolas Caesar. It’s an awesome comic book anthology featuring many great artists and writers. So what are you waiting for? It debuted at the APE show in San Fransisco recently, in which the books sold out. A new batch is being printed as we speak. So don’t miss out – order your copy today!
Many thanks to Nicolas Caesar again.
Runes Oct. 2012
Here’s my latest illustration. Continuing with the Asatru influence.
In the background of this piece, you can also see the Yggdrasil tree. To quote Wikipedia (yeah, I know, but bear with me) Yggdrasill is an immense tree that is central in Norse cosmology on which the nine worlds existed.
In case you’re interested, I’m creating custom greeting cards and postcard featuring my artwork. Each card is unique, no two are alike. I’ll be posting more examples on my Esty site: http://www.etsy.com/shop/WitchesBrewPress. Just keep checking back time to time.

Gnostic Three of Swords Oct 2012
Started sketching again. Mixing tarot card imagery and Christian Gnosticism, this was the result. Gnostic three of swords.
Here’s something I drew late last night:
