I drew kylafrank's character private investigator Markus Soks!  This is a slightly longer daily drawing, too!  This took, ehh, four hours?  3.5?  Anyway, enjoy!

Oh man Fiona„ this is seriously the best thing! He looks so hard-boiled standing in a dark alleyway with his short-shorts. You make me want to draw him more!Also, really loving the colors you have going on here and the hard-edges-to-soft-painting, they work well together. :>

Man, sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted anything up here! There’s a lot of things I’ve been working on and a whole lot of real life going on in between - I really hope to just be able to dump some stuff over here in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, here’s a running cow for something I’m working on.

These are some of the most perfect pictures of birds. The way their feathers fan out and the light shines through them reminds me of the inside of a nautilus shell.

Birds are now sacred geometry and I love it.

After interviewing for a job with the Academy of Art and finding out at the end of the interview that the pay is $13.50/hr, I wrote a nice thank you note: “Thanks for speaking with me today. After looking over my expenses, $13.50 will not be enough for me to live on. The average rent for a one bedroom in San Francisco is $2,897, and $13.50 an hour would only amount to $2,160 per month. Only if you increase the rate to at least the living wage, or offer housing, this will not work for me.” 
Her reply: “At this time, the pay rate for the role is $13.50.” 

My reply: “I suggest your institution reconsider its priorities. As one of the largest landowners in SF with a real estate portfolio worth at least $320 million, and annual revenues more than $247 million, you would think you could spare enough to pay full time labor enough to afford to live in one of the Academy’s overly priced buildings. Just sayin.”
Greed on both sides of the equation, the landlords and the employers, makes for a citizenry forced to depend on loans and credit which, surprise, just funnels more money into the pockets of the wealthy.


I swear to god universitys are just fucking with people at this point.

I was talking about doing more environment paintings the other day, so I tried one out! Grassy, misty ruins littered with the ruins of giant, robot-like stone statues.

Remember this guy?Well, he has a name now: Markus Soks. Private Investigator Markus Soks.I imagine him like a really serious investigator that everyone is slightly suspicious of because he wears shorts shorter than his trenchcoat.

I don’t usually make comics, but when I do they’re short and sweet and usually based off of nightmares.

Idk if this is the intended theme behind this piece of art but it makes sense to me…Doctors put me on anti-depressants because I’m depressed (duh) but after taking them for a while I gave them up because it’s my situation that is making me depressed and pills can’t help that.
It’s so easy to get anti depressant now and people think it’s always the cure when it really isn’t and these pills not only enforce the ‘it’s not yours or other people’s fault’ but also enforces that as long as you’re taking them you shouldn’t be depressed meaning nothing will change and you’ll always be the same.
they’re only for certain people and that isn’t me.

That is exactly the intended theme, good one.
