Another feathered friend. Room mate announced this would be an awesome dragon. So…. Feathered dragon, everyone!
A futuristic police officer of Desi descent. I wanted to work more outside my comfort zone.
I really like her hair….and she’s equipped with a personal vid-cam (required to be on while on duty) and wrist all-in-one.
A work sketch I’m still working on.
A soldier, alone.
It’s almost time. Día de Muertos!
Another of the Mermaid series.
Lionfish! Well, lionfish mermaid.
Been drawing pin ups at work. Meant to color this, but kinda fell asleep when I came home.
I know, not fan art. I just love the 40s-50s pin up style (and the girls) and was feeling like a serious old fart when all three of my room mates looked at me weirdly for squeeing that Dita Von Teese is coming to town.
Lost my usual blue pencil and architect finishing pencil, so I was stuck going old school while doodling at work. I also was flipping through the Christie’s catalog for the Princess Margaret auction. So you get fae royalty.
Titania always gets a bad rap, and I suspect that her origins had her a lot more powerful than she ever was in Shakespeare’s work.

I admit, I spend a good bulk of my time doodling in my downtime at work, and working as a frontline staff, lots of people see me drawing.
Now, despite my love of asking everyone for prompts and posting some of my art online to share, generally I’m doodling for myself, not to entertain others. I will sketch 3-5 pieces a day, and they can range from fan art to character designs to just working on observation skills (please note, I NEVER draw members of the general public- much like photography, using someone’s likeness without their permission is a big squick for me.)
Lately, quite a few people have been looking over my shoulder, commenting, and often flipping through my sketchbook when I step away or asking to flip through (usually when reaching for it).
For me this is a big problem. These are personal items (and while none of them are risque) that are not for other people, generally. But I am doing this in public, and I work in customer service. I’m not in a position to say no, usually.
My boss often comments that I seem to be quick to change the subject/downplay when people comment or praise my work.
What is it about my situation that seems to make this socially acceptable? Is it because I’m in customer service, so I am beholden to the visitors? Is there a way to decline or deflect the attention?
See? I occasionally draw things other than Phoenix Wright! Or Fan art!
…wait, where’d all my followers go?
