This fuzzy space moth is one of the first in a new series of small-scale moth paintings I’m working on. The series is inspired by nature, science, and mythology, with a sprinkle of magic on top.

I’ve been experimenting with a different process of inking linework using both Micron pens and India ink. I’m finding it very effective to ink some basic outlines before the first washes of paint rather than after, then go back in again at the end and sharpen up all the lines that need emphasizing. I’ve also been getting carried away with some newly acquired pearlescent acrylic inks. Oooh, so much sparkle!

High quality prints and framed prints are available now in my Society6 shop.
