Tina's Great Year (12-31-14) SOLD

"Tina," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $45

The inspiration for this one came from an odd place.  Somehow I remember a cartoon I saw about 25 years ago, printed on a notepad.  It depicted a shaggy, skinny, roughed-up looking wolf or coyote, and was captioned "It's Been a Great Year!"  A few of you may even remember seeing it.  Somehow, that seemed relevant, and became a foundation for this piece.

Kelli's Time Out (12-31-14) SOLD

"Kelli," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $40

I hope everyone out there is having a great holiday season!  Sorry we didn't get to a Christmas themed piece this year.  I actually have one in progress, from a great idea that a friend sent me last year.  I ran out of time to get it done then, so I thought I'd save it for this year.  So guess what, family needed help just before Christmas, so there it sits in my desk again.  Don't worry, we'll get it done next time!  

Meanwhile, I've got some new books I've been studying, that I wish I'd found years ago.  As always, my goal is to learn as much as I can, and constantly strive to improve my work.  Thanks to everyone for sticking around!

Sasha Tied & Plugged (12-21-14) SOLD

"Sasha," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $45

Well, there Sasha goes with her "big toy" fetish again.  She just never gets tired of them, does she?

Saturday, December 20, 2014

Faune and Elly (12-20-14) SOLD

"Faune & Elly," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $55

"It had been two years since Faune's last encounter with the Spider Queen.  The episode was embarrassing, perhaps, but essentially harmless.  What Faune didn't know, however, was that the Spider Queen had deemed her too small and delicate to carry her eggs, and hence released her.  The strong young Elly, however..."

Maisey and Kelli at Play (12-16-14) SOLD

"Maisey & Kelli," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $45

Well, last week involved a buddy's wedding and a big print job on our screen press, both of which went well.  Unfortunately, they didn't leave me much time to work in the studio.  But here we are again!

Tuesday, December 9, 2014

Kelsie Turns the Screws (12-9-14) SOLD

"Kelsie," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $40

As with the recent shot of Kelli working her delivery job, I realized that I never did much to show Kelsie's interest in working on computers, so here we are.  She's probably helping Tina out with some hardware problems, I'd guess.

Sunday, December 7, 2014

Anya Marker Painting (12-6-14) SOLD

"Anya," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $70

Well, I thought I'd try a different approach with one of our regular "Dames," using the techniques I've been experimenting with on the Ebay pieces this year.  Now, I wish I could get this blog to display the colors correctly, as the deck is white, not gray.  I've noticed that everything I post now has a gray cast to it, and there doesn't seem to be anything I can do to change that.  How obnoxious.

Thursday, December 4, 2014

Sophie on the Pony Pole (12-4-14) SOLD

"Sophie," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $40

So, I know this one's a bit odd.  I can usually tell when Tobie walks in and asks, "What the hell is that thing?"  Well, I've drawn the dames "mounted" on rigidly fixed poles more than once.  Today, I thought that it might be interesting, instead, to have one that was weighted heavily in a round base.  That way, it would change the angle and move around as she squirmed.  Add a bit of equestrian flare, and there you have it.

Monday, December 1, 2014

Mona at the Office (12-1-14) SOLD

"Mona," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $40

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

Millie Under Wraps (11-18-14) SOLD

"Millie," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $50

Millie's last adventure with plastic wrap seemed to go over pretty well, so she decided she wanted to try it again.

Friday, November 14, 2014

Tina & Anya in Color! (11-14-14) SOLD

"Tina & Anya," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $100

Poor Anya just can't get a break, can she?  But that's okay, she doesn't want one.

Thursday, November 13, 2014

Kelli Delivers (11-13-14) SOLD

"Kelli," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $45

Years ago I thought that this would be Kelli's outfit while she's working her second job, but only just now realized that I'd never put it down on paper.  So here she is!

Meanwhile, don't forget to check the eBay link on the right for more goodies, and Tobie's just finished a big update in the Studio site above.

Friday, October 31, 2014

Sasha's Birching (10-30-14) SOLD

"Sasha," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $40

Well, I guess this is the "other" kind of birching, eh?

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Faune and Elly (10-29-14) SOLD

"Elly & Faune," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $55

Ooh, a plot twist!  Tobie and I have been thinking it's time to change things up a little bit.  

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

Maisey and Kelli (10-28-14) SOLD

"Maisey and Kelli," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $45

Well, Tobie's been feeling much better, though she made it three days at work before falling off a ladder and breaking her arm.  And if I *ever* find the jackass customer that slapped her on the shoulder at her work (while she was wearing a sling, before she got her cast) because he thought it was funny, he'll be one sorry sonofabitch when I'm done with him.  Is 2014 over yet?  Because I'm officially fed up with this year and ready to start a new one.  Sheesh.

Thursday, October 23, 2014

Kelsie's Comics (10-26-14) SOLD

"Kelsie," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $50

Finished this one yesterday, but just now found time to post it.  Speaking of finding time, this is actually an idea I've been wanting to draw for ages, so I'm glad I finally got it done!

Monday, October 20, 2014

Anya in 11" x 17" Color! (10-20-14) SOLD

"Anya," Ink & Marker on 11" x 17" Bristol, $150

Wow, am I ever going to get this show back on track?  At least here's a nice big Anya pinup to make up for the long wait.  

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

Sophie's Contentment (10-14-14) SOLD

"Sophie," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $45

And a good time was had by all!

Sunday, October 12, 2014

Disciplined Secretary Mona (10-12-14) SOLD

"Mona," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $45

Several of you mentioned the glass from the last piece in particular, so I thought I'd try to do something similar but in a less conventional way.  So here it is!

Thursday, October 9, 2014

Dee Demonstrates (10-9-14) SOLD

"Dee," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $45

Tuesday, October 7, 2014

Space Patrol Dasha (10-7-14) SOLD

"Dasha," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $45

Since Tobie posted this as a rough sketch in "Andy's Studio," she's been after me to turn it into a finished piece.  So, here it is!

Sunday, October 5, 2014

Bound Librarian Millie (10-5-14) SOLD

"Millie," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $35

Saturday, October 4, 2014

Tina & Kelli (10-4-14) SOLD

"Tina & Kelli," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" $50

Wow, a week already?  Well, truth is that I've been working part-time for my previous employer again, as my last two replacements haven't worked out, and there's still nobody to do the work.  Anyone interested in a job in northern Idaho?

Saturday, September 27, 2014

Kelli & Anya's TV Time (9-27-14) SOLD

"Kelli & Anya," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $50

I thought to myself that we don't normally see Kelli restrained in heavy fetish leather, and that could be changed.  So, where to put her?  Well, a couch would be long enough.  So, what else could we do with Kelli in leather on the couch?  Then I remember that she's picked on Anya a time or two...

Bondage Noir?

I just posted something new over on Ebay.  Originally, this was supposed to be an experiment with ink and a crow-quill pen.  I was just talking to a good friend yesterday about trying this technique and thought today would be as good a day as any.  However, I'm thinking the ink bottle I've had in my studio may have separated out while waiting for me to try it, as all I could get was a weak gray color.  So, I decided to use the technical pens and markers I use everyday, and try to make it look like it would if I could ink it with the other material.  I like the way it turned out, and like most things on here, if you guys like it I'll make more, so check it out and let me know what you think!

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

Sasha's Pole Position (9-24-14) SOLD

"Sasha," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $35

They say that fall's arrived, so it seemed like a good time for Sasha to make an appearance in the hat, boots, and coat outfit that she started out with.  As for the position she's in, well, it is what it is!

Meanwhile, Tobie and I updated the "Andy's Studio" site today with a nice finished piece of Millie in her pony gear, with some upgrades suggested by a long-time supporter of our work.  There's over fifty illustrations and sketches there you've probably never seen, so grab your key in our online store and click on the link above to check it out!

"Andy's Studio" is Now Open!

Over the last few years, Tobie and I have been asked many times about setting up another way for people to support our work, such as Kickstarter, Patreon, a traditional “paysite,” or an online “tip jar.”  A lot of folks would prefer digital content to something mailed to their door, or would like a way to contribute a little bit at a time. But we really don’t want to take anyone’s money without having something of value to offer in return, so we finally came up with a plan.    

We’ve set up “Andy’s Studio,” and you can can get your own “key to the studio” from our online store on the right.  This month's key will be good through the end of October.  Inside, we’ll keep posting a lot of the things we’ve been asked for, such as new art, rough sketches, and an archive of the pieces that appear briefly on Ebay.  We’ve got a good start there now, and we’ll keep updating it once each day or two.  So let us know what you’d like to see, and thanks for your support!

Friday, September 19, 2014

Faune 14" x 17" Super Special! (9-19-14) SOLD

"Faune," Ink & Marker on 14" x 17" Bristol, $200

All right, so yes, I've been back to work for the last few days, and this is the biggest reason why I still haven't posted anything until now.  I made a rough sketch for this, intending to draw it as a small-format monochrome piece, and decided it needed to be bigger, and in color.  So, here it is!  I'm not sure who Faune's two new friends are, but I'm thinking they should appear again.  In particular, that girl on the right looks like she needs a taste of her own medicine, eh?

Dee T-Shirts on eBay!

"Dee" T-Shirt #1, Screen Printed by Andy on 100% Cotton

Well, the in-laws have gone home, though we did appreciate their help.  So, what was I to do while they were here?  Just before they arrived, I drew up a quick top and shorts to add to the Dee piece I did back in July.  Then while they were here, I worked on getting it ready to print on a batch of nice heavyweight t-shirts.  It's the first time we've tried digitally separating a color image into patterns of tiny halftone dots, which allowed us to print this with red, yellow, blue, and black screens, and it worked!  It's a bit different from the traditional "process" separation using cyan, magenta, yellow, and black.  Instead, it's "simulated process" using colors that are more specific to the art.  Anyway, not too shabby for a first test, eh?

Status Update

Hi, guys!  I just wanted everyone to know that things are going well.  Tobie had her surgery yesterday, and everything went as it should.  While they were in there, the surgeons discovered that she also had a case of endometriosis, a nasty condition where material from the uterus escapes into the rest of the pelvis.  So, now we finally know why she's been in increasing degrees of excruciating pain for the last couple of years while knuckleheaded doctors told her she was just being a whiny hypochondriac because they couldn't find anything obvious.  Jerks.  Anyway, she'll be coming home later today and things should start settling down to normal.  Thanks to everyone for the good wishes!

Saturday, September 6, 2014

Paddled Maisey in Color (9-6-14) SOLD

"Maisey," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $60

Wow, where have I been?  Well, we finally finished the big screen printing job, then took a couple more days to make improvements on our equipment and technique based on what we've learned.  But it's back to art for a while, with the exception of a few days next week as Tobie will be going in for surgery.  But we'll still get a few things done here and there, and then it'll be back to business once she's back home.

Sunday, August 24, 2014

Kelsie Awaits (8-24-14) SOLD

"Kelsie," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $35

Hey everyone, sorry it's been so long since I had anything new.  As for where I've been, Tobie and I have been working hard on another screen printing job that's giving us a lot of trouble.  We switched from hobby grade ink to good commercial stuff, and the learning curve has been kicking us in the butt.  We know it's better ink, but it has quirks of its own.  The order we're working on is for 180 shirts, which should be no big deal.  However, the order is mixed, with items made of a myriad of different materials and textures.  So, as soon as we figure out how to print on one type of item, we have to start over again on something new.  And since we're working with water-based inks, troubleshooting delays cause the inks to seize in the screens, then we have to shut down, clean everything up, and start over.  So, while 180 shirts should be a one-day project, we've been averaging around ten shirts a day, or sometimes less, while working like crazy to figure everything out.  When it does work, the results keep getting better and better, so we know we must be getting somewhere!  Anyway, thanks to everyone for being patient while we work this out!

Anya Inverted (8-13-14) SOLD

"Anya," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $35

Monday, August 11, 2014

Good Girl Sophie (8-11-14) SOLD

"Sophie," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $35

Sorry it's been a little quiet for a couple of days!  Tobie and I have been busy getting ready to print a big order of shirts for a client.  Shouldn't take that long, except that we've made a lot of changes in our setup, so it's kind of like starting over.  But progress is being made!

Wednesday, August 6, 2014

Mona in 11" x 17" Color! (8-6-14) SOLD

"Mona," Ink & Marker on 11" x 17" Bristol, $100

I took a slightly different approach to the color on this one.  Normally I use very pink/red tones that go from light to dark in value.  But this time I thought I'd go from warm on the light side to cool colors on the shadow side.  Then, like a knucklehead, I buried most of the cool colors under the gray shadows.  But that's okay, I still like how it turned out!

Monday, August 4, 2014

Dee in Bed (8-4-14) SOLD

"Dee," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $40

Sunday, August 3, 2014

Space Patrol Dasha (8-3-14) SOLD

Saturday, August 2, 2014

Not Quite Maisey, Or Is She?

When I decided to draw a "nice, big blonde" for today's eBay piece, I wasn't specifically going for a rendition of Maisey in bondage.  But, I'll admit that the result is close enough that I'll let her new owner decide if that's Maisey or not, because I'm not quite sure!

Millie Gets Her Groove On (8-2-14) SOLD

"Millie," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $35

Okay, so maybe I should've drawn a cast shadow under Millie to connect her to the background, but I kind of like it with her separated like that.

Sunday, July 27, 2014

New Art on eBay!

Though I've been mostly shut down this week, I have been picking at a new eBay piece, and it's done, so stop by and take a look!  I'm actually really starting to enjoy using the big ol' auction site as a place to experiment with new things that spring more or less randomly from my rusty brain.

Saturday, July 26, 2014

Tina's Stress Relief (7-26-14) SOLD

"Tina," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol

Got a little something done today while Tobie and the in-laws went boating.  

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

New Ponygirl on eBay!

Sorry about the lack of new items lately.  Simple fact is, the in-laws are in town, and that makes it tough to get much done.  But I'm still doing what I can!  And so, we have a new pony piece on eBay, so click the button on the right and take a look!

Friday, July 18, 2014

Kelli Takes Time for Herself (7-18-14) SOLD

"Kelli," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $60

I apparently got carried away again, this was supposed to be a simple gray tone piece with no background.  Oh, well!  At least I'm having a blast doing this stuff, and I'm sure glad to have you all along for the ride!

And for the record, we don't officially condone this particular activity, due to the obvious risks involved.  At least she was sensible enough to bring a phone with her, but she ought to have some scissors, and someone to keep an eye on her.  But hey, it's just art, right?

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

Now This is Really Something!

So, I've once again gotten carried away with my latest piece for eBay, which has grown into much more than I'd originally planned.  However, I'm glad it did!  You've got to see this one, so click on the eBay link on the right and look for the new piece titled "What's Next?"

...and in other news, the "Fantasy Bound" piece got pulled for being "miscategorized," so I've relisted it.  Sorry about that guys, but Tobie and I really appreciate your bids, as things are tight for us this month!

Sasha in Leather (7-15-14) SOLD

"Sasha," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $35

Monday, July 14, 2014

Slight Change of Plans

Okay, I know I said I was going to post a new ACEO trading card piece each morning, but it looks like I'm already going to change that plan.  Simple fact is, some mornings trying to make those teeny-tiny little pieces is just way too taxing on the eyes and brain!  So, I'm still going to make cards, but I'll do those on some days, and full-sized pieces on other days.  The full-sized pieces will vary in complexity, from simple little cartoons to more advanced stuff.  I'm still trying to get a rhythm with this full-time gig, so I'll stop trying to work out a rigid schedule and just make things for a while, and see what happens!  That being said, there's a new piece on eBay that's a bit more complex, so stop by and take a look!

Faune Cleans Up (7-14-14) SOLD

"Faune," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $35

Sunday, July 13, 2014

Maisey's 700HP Vibrator (7-13-14) SOLD

"Maisey," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $40

Maisey loves her job, especially when it's time to break in a new engine.

Friday, July 11, 2014

Kelsie's Photo Shoot (7-11-14) SOLD

"Kelsie," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $35

ACEO Trading Card Art Returns!

I've done "ACEO" format, or 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" trading card sized art before and enjoyed it, but it's been a while.  Well, I've decided that I'm going to try producing one each morning as a "warm up" for the day's work and see how it goes.  Cards featuring our favorite cast of characters will appear in the online store, whereas I'll also be posting some on eBay that won't be a specific character, just the results of my pea brain on the loose.  I've started one off in eBay, and we'll see what happens!

Thursday, July 10, 2014

New Item on eBay!

Hey everyone, I've got a new ponygirl illustration posted on eBay, just click the link on the right to check it out.

Anya Goes for a Ride (7-10-14) SOLD

"Anya & Tina," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $45

Tina discovered that if she was going to help Anya live out her fantasies, she'd have to buy a second car.  One with a trunk.  This '72 Satellite should do nicely.

Wednesday, July 9, 2014

Sophie Takes a Paddling (7-9-14) SOLD

"Sophie," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $45 

Tobie's Prints Available in Gloss or Matte!

Tobie reminded me to mention that all of her digital prints are now available either gloss or matte finish paper, depending on your preference!  Each print is taken from the original high-resolution scan I make of each piece, not the low-resolution version suitable for web viewing.  She then takes the time to clean up and adjust each image to prepare it for printing, and then it gets a signature from both me and her before being packaged and shipped.  And as always, if you're interested in a print that's not in the store, just let us know!  Click on my profile on the right, and send us an email.

"Mona," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $35

Saturday, July 5, 2014

Dee on the Fourth (but on the Fifth, 7-5-14) SOLD

"Dee," Ink & Marker on 11" x 17" Color, $150

Tobie suggested we do a piece for the Fourth of July, and I agreed.  She said "how about Dee in the nude, holding a flag..." to which I replied, "...on a '70s chopper!"  So, here it is.  Unfortunately we had this grand idea a little late, so I didn't quite make it in time for the Fourth.  But hey, if you ask me, this kind of thing is cool any time of year.  In fact, we're actually thinking we might draw her up a shirt and shorts on a separate sheet, add them in Photoshop, and run this on our T-shirt printing press.

Friday, July 4, 2014

Space Patrol Dasha (7-4-14) SOLD

"Dasha," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $40

For some reason this makes me think of the old Safety Sheriff TV commercials- "You're in a heap o' trouble, boy!"

Thursday, July 3, 2014

Plastic Wrapped Millie (7-3-14) SOLD

"Millie," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $35
