Now little Hans was always strange
Wearing women’s underthings
His father beat him but he wouldn’t change
He ran off with a man one day
Now his lingerie is all the rage
In the black on every page
His father proudly calls his name
Down there in the Reeperbahn.
One day I will illustrate every single one of Tom Waits’ perfect, perfect songs.

Welp, here we go again.
I don’t even know what’s going to happen when I get my Criterion Eisenstein box set.
I think I need to draw Saint-Just like this. *___*
Ok, not technically a dress, but Basmanov did dress in women’s clothes for Ivan and wore that mask, so it still counts, right?
Did the most therapeutic drawing at work today - I think that must be what Andrei Rublev felt like when painting icons. The thing I wanted to capture the most is how impossibly kind Mr. Fry’s eyes are.
Weird crappy sketch for a weird crappy mood - Hans from Tom Waits’ “Reeperbahn” again. I can’t tell if I love it or hate it. I like the colors and the expression. The anatomy is bizarre even for me and I can’t even begin to tell what the fuck is up with that background. I’ll just tell myself I was channeling Otto Dix as consolation.
And speaking of commissions, here is the finished anklet piece for one of my gorgeous friends. The tattoo is going to be in color, but I’m leaving that up to the patron and her tattoo artists, since watercolor does not translate onto skin anyway. I really enjoyed doing this, especially putting in little personal touches like the gem at the center - which will be her birthstone peridot - the flowers for her name and the quill that represents her background as a classically trained Shakespearian actress (as well as something a bit more intimate).
Now that I’ve recovered from MoCCA and pretty much wrapped up the commissions I have had lined up, it’s time to make it official that yes, I’m ready to take commissions again!
-The price of commissions depends entirely on the size and complexity of the piece, so the best way to get a quote is to contact me directly through my e-mail. My website has a very rough and basic guide to pricing, and my e-mail can also be found there.
- Just for simplicity’s sake, the e-mail to use if you want to get in touch about commissioning a piece is HighChancellor(at)me(dot)com.
Payment works in these simple stages:
- After I’ve discussed the potential commission with you and committed to creating it, I take a 50% non-refundable deposit via Paypal before I begin work.
- I e-mail you a pencil sketch for approval. I don’t usually charge additional fees for the first alteration (unless you are so unhappy you want me to draw the whole thing over from scratch). However, too many alterations take time and work, and therefore I have to start charging at some point. I am, however, flexible and understanding.
- After the pencil sketch is approved, I ink and/or color the drawing and send you a scan of the finished product. If you are happy with it, I take the other half of the payment.
- Once the payment clears, I mail you the commission.
That’s about it!
More porny doodles. Drawing hairy beefy guys is so much fun.
I haven’t drawn Ella in way too long, and I’ve been working out the next chapter in my head, so here we are.
Some grotesques for inking practice on that searing yellow paper. I’m kind of in love with how it makes my eyes hurt. Some of these were sketched very lightly with pencil, but mostly it’s all straight ink. I’m especially proud of the owl and the scaled on the fish.
Voila, our table location at this year’s MoCCA Fest! We’ll be there all weekend long hawking all kinds of awesome stuff! We’ll have a fresh new batch of Baritarian Histories, loads of greeting cards, prints, a few Zelda magazines, paper dolls and original art for sale. So stop by and visit us!
You know you want this.
