Want to participate? See the Fan Art Up! main page

The participation guidelines have been updated! You can now participate via Twitter, Instagram or your blog. Just #FanArtUp and be sure to include the link to this week’s post (and add your art to the linky below!) and it doesn’t necessarily have to be “fan art” if you want to just share your art with us let’s see it!


This week’s art was inspired by Hapenny Magick by Jennifer Carson, Illustrated by P.A. Lewis. I picked up this adorable yet dark middle grade fiction book while at BEA 2014. The cover art immediately grabbed my attention because all of you know how big of a cover whore I am. So just my luck I was granted a copy for review. I’m happy to say the inside of the book has a number of beautiful black and white sketches as well!

I am a guest today on another blog!

So be sure to visit the blog OH MAGIC HOUR (which I adore) as she had me share another of my doodles for their SWASHBUCKLING SUMMER!



Here is an update on my watercolor painting progress – which some of you random lovely followers will be seeing in your mailbox soon! I know some of you might be wondering what happened to the markers…So far I SUCK at markers. Until then watercolor it is.

Stalk me!

When I'm in the zone I can flip book pages faster than the eye can see - screaming "More Input!" I'm a book, yarn, & art supply hoarding goblin who loves to draw, make toys and craft all sorts of creepy cute things. My current habit is to listen to audio books while I'm arting it up!
Stalk me!

    Markers are TOUGH, even now I struggle with them. I’ve pretty much given up on color markers and now work with greyscale almost exclusively, so if you want to give it another try maybe that’s something you can look into! I find it easier. Watercolors are a lot more fun though so if you’re enjoying them I say just do that. Man, you make me want to start up painting again. Nice work!

      Markers definitely are tough. I do have a bunch of grey markers in the set. I’ll give those a whirl. I just hate when I’m not instantly good at something LOL. I know it’s unrealistic. The water color is so fun and easy and just less cleanup. I’ve just taken to leaving a jar of water on my desk and the paint palette open. I love that the paint can dry out and you can just reconstitute it! NO WASTE!!

      I hope you decide to do some painting!

      You know – I don’t know how I find the time either. But honestly right now I’m very behind on the reading. The blogging I always manage to keep up. Thankfully Tina and Maggie have been helping with some of the backlog of review books. My friend Rachel is also going to contribute a few reviews here and there as well. So I’ll add her in once she is ready.

      Horray so glad that you like the doodles! I saw that you’d followed. I feel like I’ve bombarded my instagram with doodles lately. I need to take some book photos! maybe get some props and do some artsy shots if I can figure some out.

    Your pictures this week are absolutely gorgeous! Somehow I’m always drawn to the ones with critters sleeping – must be because I’m a sleep monster!
    I’ve added my dreadful doodle!

    Cover whores, unite! I only wish that I could do my favourite covers justice with my fan art. Maybe one week I’ll participate via twitter and subject you to my horrific drawing “abilites.” It’s like Hyperbole and a Half style art without the intentional humor.
