Cthulhu is love

Yes i know there's a spelling error, Lovecraftian words are hard to spell off the top of your head.

green deer

something from the sketch book, I've been drawing lots and lots of patterns lately and I think I'm going to start integrating them into my cut paper stuff.

How to make something disappear

Hey everyone I'm still here and have finally managed to get settled in in the UK. I've mostly just been sketching for the last month or so, so expect some sketch dumps soon. But I've also been working on this book project thing based on the idea of surprise in a narrative. I used the idea of a magic trick but changed it a bit to fit into something a bit more me. Any ways here are the images, please note that the text does not fit with the image, as they are formatted to be bound (in fact I bound it today and it's being pressed as I type), so I've placed the correct type for each image below the image. Thanks for the patience everyone and expect more soon

Oh also I've finally gotten a phone in the UK so it is possible to get in touch with me that way I'll be putting that on my website in the next couple of days, though email is still probably a better way to get in contact with me.

so first the sketch

and then the finishes

Step 1: Hold a heart (mine in this case) at the very end of your fingertips in your right hand.

Step 2: Move your other hand over from above as if to take my heart.

Step 3: Just before you’re about to make the switch subtly allow the heart to fall into the base of your right fingers; do this move swiftly and smoothly to simulate a handoff.

Step 4: Carry on with this grasping motion, tightening both hands into fists at the same time, which will hide the fact that my heart remains in your right hand.

Step 5: Take your right hand (where my heart still remains) and make an elaborate pointing gesture at your left fist, throwing in some “magic” words, such as “presto-change-o”, “trust me” or what have you.

Step 6: Open your hands and reveal that my heart hasn’t disappeared…
