sketchfest stuff

I got six paintings done this month: three yesterday before falling asleep early, and three today. No Lorelei this month, but I introduced her pen-pal, Tanuki Jiro, who doesn't find his almost namesake very appetizing.

I tried an experiment this time, and made postcard sized prints of most of them available through the SketchFest sales system, and somebody bought one! I think I'll be doing that from now on :) You can still sponsor any of these if you want a version that's suitable for larger prints, but it's a quick way to get a copy for those who like the speedpaintings as-is.

prompt: Death in disguise

prompt: monster switch

prompt: The Masked Ball

prompt: Tanuki at the Market

prompt: The Cat's Music

prompt: sole survivor

Finished versions of any of these are $75. Co-sponsorships are welcome!

>>prompt: Death in disguise

"I see things,
I see them with my eyes,
I see things,
They're often in disguise..."

(In case you're wondering: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XBnXvhgrV8Q )

And, yes, I'm also reminded of Terry Pratchett's "Hogfather". :D
Death-in-disguise is pretty cute. Hee! I think I like the piano-playing kitty best, though.

For those who wonder why the short brown kid keeps laughing at them:

Jiro isn't delighted to see the soup, he's horrified. Most Asians react to social discomfort, disgust, or outright terror with nervous laughter. I seem to recall something in the early years about being unseemly, but this is the sort of thing it's best not to analyze too closely, and just take as given.

Oh, is it a general asian thing? I drew him like that because you told me our Tanuki smile at everything...
