    Cute Cryptid – Yeti

    I finally figured out what I wanted to do for backgrounds and I’ve been working on finishing these cute cyptid watercolor paintings and getting them online. First up is the Yeti. He’s probably my favorite of the bunch. I used hand drawn mountains in the background because I want each of the backgrounds to be reminiscent of an old map. I also want to reflect the type of location where these creatures have been sighted. Luckily I had some old snowflake designs I made too and they were a wonderful addition.

    This design is now up for sale in my Society6 and Redbubble shops.

    Cute Cryptid WIP – Yeti

    Here’s the next cryptid in my Cute Cryptid series. Say “hi” to the Yeti!

    He’s mostly done at this point. Just needs some pen work to really complete the picture. This painting was done in watercolor using only three colors.

    Cute Cryptid Project – WIP

    I’m working on a series of cute cryptid paintings. I’ve always loved scary stories and cryptids are usually pretty great at being scary.

    But since I like drawing cute things the most, I decided to make them cute obviously. I want to make them into stickers, but that might change later. For now, here are some work in progress shots of me painting a cute kraken.

    Pizza Pug

    Pizza Pug

     

    I’m one of those people that thinks pugs are adorable. I’ve seen some pictures before of pugs dressed up in Halloween costumes. A pizza costume is what inspired this little painting. I loved the idea of a cute pug delivering pizza. I imagine he’d take a slice as a tip.

    Polar Bears Staying Warm

     

    Here’s some polar bears trying to keep warm. Illustrated in watercolor and pen.

    The winter here in Minnesota has been unusually mild so far. We’ve only had a handful of days get down to what I’d call “normal” for us. That’d be around the single digits, down to about -10F. We’ve had so many days get above 30F that there’s barely any snow on the ground. It even got above 40F yesterday! It’s crazy!
