Pet Portrait: Ein by The-Z
Pet Portrait: Ein
This is a portrait of my old corgi who was put down over a year ago for a massive tumor in his chest. He lived to be twelve years old and was an awesome companion! I really miss him and I buried his cremated remains in our back yard and planted a magnolia tree over them. It's been thriving, so I take that as a sign that he's resting easy. The tumor was really slowing him down that last month he was around. It had compressed his lungs and heart which explains why he slowed down suddenly on our walks.

I've been meaning to make this portrait for a while, but the memory was still too fresh in my mind. I think the healing is finally complete. Miss you, old buddy.

Devil Part-Timer sketch page

Took an opportunity to watch The Devil is a Part-Timer last week. I love the people from a fantasy land in the modern world displacement or vice versa scenario. It’s just fun to see them adjust, especially when they maintain old acquaintances.

Felt good to get a moment to sketch last night. I have a page of hentai I'll be posting on my NSFW Tumblr later.
Parcorgi by The-Z
I was walking the dogs and our corgi, Rufus, decided to walk along this little stretch of retaining wall with a four foot drop on one side. He’s an old and slow dog (really, we postulate that he’s just a very advanced form of beet), so I tugged him back over to the road and off-handedly said, “No parkour… gi.” Stupid comments sometimes yield great mental images. I’ve been wanting to do more with this, but last week was occupied with private commissions, nerf herding, and finishing a book/binging on anime.

If time allows, I’ll explore this a bit more. It’s just an excuse to draw corgis.

Motaku was great fun! Thanks to everyone who stopped by for a chat or to pick something up! I really enjoyed your company and sharing my art with you. I finished a total of 20 commissions at the con and I brought one home with me. Holymoly, how time flew by! I couldn't even check my streetpasses on Saturday! I missed out on a lot of tags that way XD

Some highlights (besides you wonderful people, and I mean that), are two commissions for Deadpool taking out Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus. TheElusiveDime found a potted plant in need of some TLC with a post-it note of "I am Groot" on it. I do hope you post that, man.

I'm wiped out and my house is a disaster! I'll spend a day recovering and then get to work sharing art with you folks. Thanks again for the company and for the support. I appreciate it all.

Next con is Ahn!Con (whee, a yaoi con~) in January. Hope to see you there!

Hey, man, don't sweat it. I really appreciate you taking the time to come say happy birthday! I hope you're having a great day. I'm doing gardening on May Day. I'm so predictably domestic, I just might vomit XD
