This is Bat Country

Some would say Anne Karetnikov is an illustrator and an artist. Her usual habitat is the eastern US, and was last seen painting and looking very sleep deprived.
Thanduil WIP. Lil teaser shot. Hoping to have prints of him for zenkaikon and animenext.

Fullview on blog is worth it.
Going to be selling art at Zenkaikon 2014 and Animenext 2014. Hopefully I’ll be debuting prints of Howl! Finally finished him. This was a lot of fun to do, but a lot of work too. If you’re going to either con, please come see me! My banner has a big naga and a plague doctor mask on it so it’s a little hard to miss.

Unused book cover. They ended up going in a different direction, but I was still paid for my time. I really liked how it came out- and now that the image is mine I happily changed the hands and tail back to red. I love silly floofy old clothes, ah

Hannibal tonight. Celebratory quick doodle at work. Who’s going to watch with me?

Wait.. wait! Stop! I’m confused.
I… I think it’s the suits. Is it the suits?
I must just love suits.
Suits and jackasses? Sophisticated jackasses. Maybe the whole people-feastin’ thing is optional. I hope it’s optional. I’m also starting to wonder if everything I love just comes down to a bunch of Dracula-like nonsense…. I … am… sort of okay with this.

Just realised that i never threw these here. Snapshots from at least TWO Hannibal-related things I’ve done with my family. The first four are from the season 2 party- mom mostly did that one and it was amazing, the others are from thanksgiving- I did a Hannibal-themed table and dressed in a grey jacket with green/grey plaid pants and appropriately patterned neckwear. The table setting included a lot of things I tried to emmulate from the show (deep purple table runner, metalic chargers and so on). The centrepeice was my favorite to do- aside from various interesting fruit and flowers, I snuck in turkey feathers somewhere (because we were eating a turkey, ha), peacock feathers, and yes those are walrus tusks. Mum drew the line at putting the moose antler on the table, ha, but it looked good on the sideboard.

Here’s a little snapshot of a painting in progress- can you guess who it is? 

Been super super busy recently. Working on at least two projects aside from my part time job and working on having more prints for Zenkaikon and Animenext. I’m hoping buttons and stickers will be a thing too but we’ll see if I run out of time.

-INNOMINATAM-
Everything has its price.

The first promo painting for an upcoming webcomic entitled Innominatam.I am the illustrator as well as the co-author of this approaching beast. It is entirely done in watercolors and is a very… unique collaboration- full of oddity and experimentation. Stay tuned and join us for fantasy, horror, drama and dreams.

Sneak peek~ a quick work-in-progress shot of the painting I’m doing to promote Innominatam, the upcoming webcomic that I am illustrating and co-writing.
