Book Illustrations:

The paintings and sketches in this series were originally illustrations for a Spanish children’s book titled Los monstruos de la noche and a fractured fairy tale titled North of the North Star in which a princess is turned to stone by the supposed good witch and the supposed wicked witch… um, no spoilers. Anyway, there are also dragons, so there’s that.

Living in Ink:

The works in this series are primarily sumi-e paintings using traditional brushstrokes (among other techniques) and several are also featured in our book Living in Ink. A few pieces were also painted on rice paper, which, as a side note, smells delicious. Admittedly, our resident painter is just learning sumi-e, so the technique seen in these works isn’t as polished as it could be (only 9, 992 hours to go!) but at least this series also has a dragon.

Fantasia:

The works in this series each contain a common thread of surreal elements and include oil, acrylic, and watercolor paintings, pastels, metalpoint sketches… it’s not super organized, in other words. There are puppies, though, so that ratchets up the adorableness of this series somewhat (or at least it would if we were better at drawing puppies).

Neon Lights:

The works in this series are all digitally modified except for the one that isn’t. We… we really need to work on organizing this better, don’t we? Anyway, many of these works were originally ink or marker contour drawings, and many also contain fantastical elements such as tree gremlins. And, of course, also a dragon.

Whimsy:

The works in this category are predominantly watercolor paintings; additionally, some have marker or colored pencil outlines. There’s also a cat, but unfortunately not as many puppies as in some of Kiwi Fur’s other collections. A mini bellows (difficult to describe but actually a thing that exists) was used to achieve some of the more splattery texture.
