Since The Goldenrod Snit  established Sydney Van Cleef, (affectionately known as Syd) as a canon member of the Kekionga cast, I decided last weekend to draw a sort-of-official portrait of him as my drawing of the day.  I don’t have … Continue reading

I found this elegantly dressed dude in one of my drawing of the day sketchbooks from last year, as I was searching for some illustrations for a new minicomic.  I remember drawing him and the half finished piece has always … Continue reading

This supernatural character is sly and conniving and only an angel because of the wings. And the wings themselves are heavily abstracted, to the point where they may be unrecognizable.  Spirals, as always, represent magic and mystery. I was very … Continue reading
