While I'm working on the book illustration project, I've also started working on the paintings I need for Acen 2014. First one is completed, cute little octo mallow! You might remember him from this post, though you've never seen this much of him before!
A slightly better view of a couple of the gems embedded in this piece:
He's 4"x4", acrylic and mixed media on canvas. Premiering at Anime Central 2014, where he'll be for sale!
