80s Star Dawn is Poppin’ Off! (feat. MC Pippy Fresh)

Hey. How you been?

It’s been a minute since I dropped new artwork here, and not a New York minute either. We’re talking a Minnesota minute. With AI prompt-jockey accounts pooping out mass-production fan art every three seconds, and would-be tyrants trying to choke out liberty for the marginalized, and commercial juggernauts milking workers and customers alike, and two wars going on, it’s hard to find the impetus to draw things, but I arted today. Dang, that got unexpectedly real!

But the point is, I had today off work, and I drew Dawn and her short friend exuding their biggest Robin Sparkles and Snow energy. I got back on my game: girly fashion with a little tongue-in-cheek goofiness. And it was fun! I enjoyed pushing the pen and tapping the stylus, and despite our problem-wracked world, there are still many things to rejoice about. So sing a song, dance around, put wraparounds and a sick lid on your penguinesque gladiator animal, and get a little silly. Hope yet remains.

Lego Mecha Mania: More Mobile Frame Zeroes

Mobile Frame Zero Lego mecha model, Underbite, equipped with twin-linked Xarelto cannon, ventic field projector, and scoot jets

The Mobile Frame Zeroing continues! I’d like to share with you my MF0 company: presenting the BIOHOV (Bipedal Independent-Operation Heavy-Output Vehicle) squad for desert bandit gang The Red-Jaw Jackals. Yes, of course these are part of my post-apocalyptic magical sci-fi tabletop RPG world of goblins and reptile people. Did you entertain, even for a second, … Read more

Mobile Frame Zero: Tiny Giant Robots Made of Lego

Mobile Frame Zero Lego mecha models, Neon Colossus and Scrap Striker

I have a new hobby. Mobile Frame Zero is an open-source tactical wargame played using mecha made from Lego. Ever since I heard about it from Penny Arcade in 2012, apparently (dang son), I’ve been meaning to get into it. A handful of weeks ago, I finally dug my old Lego collection out of the … Read more

Shirts from a Person: God Loves Trans People and Never Punch Down

I didn’t make the shirt designs below with Pride Month in mind. In fact, I created the God Loves Trans People design back in like February. But Pride Month is almost over, and these two shirt designs both relate to cutting oft-marginalized minority groups some respect as human beings, so I wanted to share said … Read more

AI Enhanced Character Portrait: Morrigan, Gunslinger for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition

portrait of Dungeons and Dragons gunslinger player character, Morrigan, comparing traditional artwork to AI-assisted results

You remember Morrigan, my D&D 5e gunslinger character and a trick shootist with the Witchlight Carnival? I’ve been noodling around with these diabolical new AI image generation tools, trained by maliciously exploiting the work of countless artists with no compensation or parity, because I have no conscience. I’ve discovered that I can literally just feed … Read more

Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition Gunslinger Artwork: Morrigan in Action

Or, in which I almost immediately prove myself a liar. What kind of a quitter posts a Quitter’s Manifesto, only to turn right around and draw the very art that he swore was nigh-impossible to bring himself to create? Anyway, y’all remember Morrigan, my current D&D character and trick-shootist-turned-gunfighter. I used a Heroforge model as … Read more

Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition: Gunslinger Character Portrait

portrait of Dungeons and Dragons gunslinger player character, Morrigan, in blue brass-button vest and green bandanna

This week a friend of mine is starting up a new D&D campaign. And because I am a control freak who wants to make sure everyone has the correct mental image of my character, I drew my character. This is Morrigan, a 19-year-old exhibition shootist who has been traveling with the Witchlight Carnival. She has … Read more
