Added 1 new A* page:It's Wednesday original A* art archive auction time! First I should mention that since I got last week's special sale original art auction started a day late, you still have a day to catch it! It's an 11" x 17" ink illustration of Selenis that I made for a poster contest in 2012, and the auction is right here.|
Okay on to this week's special! It's another of the oh five or so remaining large 11" x 17" ink pieces I have left to sell; this one, inspired by a silly Twitter conversation with reader @elephande way back in 2011, features Selenis in a goofy "space pirate" outfit, complete with eyepatch, buckled-on sword, boots, and skull to pose with : o. I don't know if I've done an illustration quite this silly with her since then! So if you like space pirates and/or Selenis being silly, well check out the piece at auction (for one week!) right here.
It's on a lighter, 70 lb paper (Bienfang Raritan) I was experimenting with back then, which accounts for the little rumples along the side where the ink wash caused it to shrink a bit. Ah, fun times! 8 o
