Hi everyone! I stopping by to give you an update on Grotesque Moi!. I’ve been adjusting the first five illustrations (illos) so that they print more accurately. After having some standard prints and canvas prints ran I’ve had to make some adjustments to my computer and IPad so that the new creations should print right with minimal adjustments. Please enjoy the new and improved images!
I’m happy to introduce everyone to the latest creature for Grotesque Moi! This is Tamaska-Ahas. He is a Lupinenaga prince. I have been excited to create him for awhile. He was one of a group of sketches i did when I first came up with the idea of of what would become Grotesque Moi!

Taking what is natural and hybridizing it into a fantastically new beautiful creation! Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder.
