November Concludes…

Whoops! I had such a bustling late year influx of work and social changes! I really lost track of these monthly updates! But look at this! It’s the first of December and I have a moment!! YEEE let’s show off Novembers work! I am feeling so good about my work lately! Which is just wonderful, having confidence in my work is refreshing and empowering! Onto more art and more stories!

I’m also uploading a comic to my Patreon, which is what I’ve been working on when work is light. It’s modest right now, but I’m excited to delve into the characters and the world I’m creating! It’s up for my $5+ patrons as I’ve become too busy to offer my commission raffle.

On to November’s gallery of completed works!! Kaleb_WEB_RESKaleb – Dungeons and Dragons character commissionNyxie_WEB_RES

May Concludes…

Hooboy! Let’s find balance again! I feel as if I’ve not done as much work this May, and I can’t have that! I’ve had an awful dip in self esteem and have been doubting every piece I complete! Which is the enemy of us freelancers! It’s damaging to start undervaluing your work, and I’m feeling the side effects of that very thing! I hope to work on that with June now here. I’m hopeful I can find balance again!

On with the show! Here’s the pieces I completed in May! You can see these illustrations (and a bunch of behind the scenes content) as their completed on my Patreon!

March Concludes…

Oh my gosh! March was a big month! I sat fares in Wagga Wagga and in the NGV! It was a fun, tiring month, which to me means a good month! My existing PC died and with all the support of my sweet fans and patrons, I managed to raise the funds for a new pc! I am so thankful to everyone who came to me for a sale commission and for filling the slots so damn fast!

Anyway, let’s see what we’ve got here!

January Concludes…

Hoo boy! January, following the trend of busy months, I was run flat out! I was spending each week helping the Arcanacon committee, furiously drawing and creating little bits to help the convention come together!

I also had the wonderful to work with people’s characters with commissions, which is a blessing! Gosh, character work warms my soul like you wouldn’t believe! I also had two separate instances of setting up shop at events! I was honored to participate in both the Midsumma Queer ZineFEST, and Arcanacon!

A huge thanks to my patrons and clients for the support, y’all helped see me through a big start of the year!

Most of these pieces are up on my Patreon, which you can follow to stay up to date with my latest pieces and a bunch of bonus content for pledges.

Inktober 2018 Collection

My Inktober collection for 2018 features gothic imagery inspired by medical illustrations, horror movies, and a whole mess of nudes!


Hey all my lovely loves! I finally put my gosh darn Inktober pieces together! They’re up on my Gumroad for download! I will be compiling a zine of them all for sale at Sticky Institute! All of my second tier patrons have the collection unlocked already!

A Menagerie in Sticky

My work is featured in the Sticky Institute window for the month of November! Come on down to 10 Campbell Arcade, Degraves Subway in Melbourne to get a good look at the pieces in person!


I wanted to explore my work in the context of tattoo flash. It’s something I am so very inspired and influenced by, that I decided to dive in and create some flash of my own! The pieces depict various wildlife I’ve seen throughout the Melbourne suburbs. These little critters are just one aspect of this city that I am in love with!


Thanks to Luke, Beck, Sam, the coordinators of Sticky Institute for lending me the window for November! Thanks to all the wonderful volunteers in Sticky Institute!

I acknowledge that Sticky is on the stolen lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation, and that Indigenous sovereignty has never been ceded.

It’s a great space! Come on down!
