Warm up drawing of my favorite character on my current favorite show. #arrow #felicity #felicitysmoak #cw
Little preview of what’s coming up in Briar Hollow. #owen #gay #gayillustration #webcomics #briarhollow
I recently got the chance to meet Raven and Jujubee when they came to Asylum in Vancouver. It was such a terrific night, and an amazing show and really proved that Drag Race contestants really are the cream of the crop. I loved when Jujubee performed Christina and Raven’s funny monologue about growing up Mormon. I was able to give them this art with my favorite quotes they’ve said on Drag Race and Drag U.
I want them both to be my fairy godmothers like Whitney in Cinderella.
Quick color pass on the drawing I did of America Chavez AKA Miss America from The Young Avengers. She’s one of my favorite Marvel characters and I sort of wanted to see her with a mask and a shield since Captain America and Patriot both had them. Why not her?

Tip was so delighted that he danced up and down and laughed aloud in boyish ecstacy.
"I must give him a name!" he cried. "So good a man as this must surely have a name. I believe," he added, after a moment’s thought, "I will name the fellow Jack Pumpkinhead!" - The Marvelous Land of Oz, L. Frank Baum.
Being this close to Halloween, I wanted to do Jack Pumpkinhead. I’ve always liked his character and found him to be sweet.
If you don’t know, As a child, Ozma (or Tip as she was known at the time) created him to scare the evil witch Mombi. Mombi later brought him to life with her magic powder.
But just like with children’s drawings, things aren’t always perfect or in proportion. So I wanted him to have different sized eyes and a wonky smile, and different tree limbs for hands.
I followed the description from the book for his clothes in a pretty straight forward way: purple pants, red shirt, pink vest, but I wanted the vest to be a little mariachi bolero and for his shirt to be made from and old mexican blanket. Also, very ill fitting considering the clothes were pulled from one of Mombi’s old trunks.
I do like that his pants and scarf are purple, being that he hails from Gillikin Country where everything is tinted purple.
So I updated my commissions with newer and better examples. Please click on it to see the big version. Also, reblogs and such are appreciated.

My illustration of Jinkx Monsoon as Little Edie.
I recently had the pleasure of seeing Peaches Christ and Jinkx Monsoon perform Return to Grey Gardens at the Castro Theater and I was also able to give this piece to Jinkx. She was gracious and gorgeous and hilarious and everything you would expect her to be.
Go with me here.
I’ve posted a few Ozma’s before but didn’t really connect with them or see them as part of my set here on The Magic Picture. I had to really go back and think about what my connection to Oz was/is and when I really thought about it, it all clicked.
I did not enjoy growing in up in Boise Idaho, especially after being exposed so much to Mexico and visiting my family there. Boise was brown, gray. Mexico was so vibrant and full of color and culture that I connected with Dorothy’s story in such a similar way. In the books, Oz eventually becomes Dorothy’s home and she ends up living there.
So Oz, for me, is directly tied in to Mexico and how wonderful that country and my experiences there have been. My set of characters will be inspired by that, Aztec patterns and design, Mexican architecture and clothes, all of it.
Ozma is the lost princess of Oz. She was stolen as a baby by The Wizard and given to the evil witch Mombi. Mombi enchanted her and transformed her into a boy she named Tip.
For this reason, I like the idea of her wearing a helmet. To protect her from enchantments and spells. A lot of Mexican jewelry is silver and turquoise so I went with that. I also like the idea of her poppies being part of the helmet. She’s got a cool pattern on her dress which is inspired by a Mexican wedding dress.
She’s got on a large red belt with silver on it, since she wears The Magic Belt which used to belong to the Nome King.
Lastly, her staff is inspired by an Aztec weapon, and I sort of like the more angular Oz markings on it.
Scarecrow, the wise.
If you’ve read the original Oz books then you know that Oz’s countries are divided by color. Everything in Munchkinland is blue. Hopefully, that explains my color choices here, but I also like the idea of the Scarecrow having a smiling skull face and being covered by crows that never leave him alone. He can’t even scare one, right?
I also wanted him to have mesh versions of those hideous Mexican pointy boots (botas picudas) that originated in San Luis Potosi. I think they’re ugly, but they work for Scarecrow.
I’m doing commissions again. Any takers? Reblogs and reposts appreciated.
