5 Fandom Friday: 5 Fictional Vehicles That I’d Love To Travel In

5 Fandom Friday

There are so many possible vehicles that I’d love to add to this list but I’m going to go with the following.  Here are my 5 Fictional Vehicles That I’d Love To Travel In:

5. – Moya

farscape-moya

To be fair, any spaceship travel is cool.  I really could have put any of them in this spot, so let’s be honest, I would want to be on Moya just because of the adorable DRDs.

4. – Air Foil

How about traveling on?  Is that a valid option?  Go ahead and laugh but when I was a kid, I thought Kit Cloudkicker’s air foil was the most awesome thing ever.  I may or may not have pretended that my boomerang was one when I played in the backyard…

3. – The Impala

67 Impala

Not just an Impala but the Impala.  Dean’s ’67 Impala to be exact.  Now, I know this isn’t technically a fictional vehicle but I’m going to go ahead and say that I would want to travel in their’s.  Saving people.  Hunting things.  Let’s do this!  *turns on some AC/DC*

2. – Ecto 1 / Ecto 1A

Ecto1

I’ve wanted to drive this for soooooooooo long!  Maybe one day… Thanks to conventions, my dreams may come true!  Although, I’m sure the owner wouldn’t let me drive but they’d probably take me for a ride around the block and I’d be just as pleased.

1. – TARDIS

Tardis-in-Space-tardis-6289809-1600-1131

This has to be the #1 choice.  ALWAYS.  The #1 choice.

What about you?  How would you love to travel?

It had been a hot minute since I drew some sketch cards.  I will be adding them to my Etsy shop soon and I might also make some other items with these illustrations, so if you like them then be on the lookout for new things to come.

I also finished up this fun commission of Chris Pratt & Blue having sno-cones on a ferris wheel.  lol

I’ll be working on more sketch cards soon, plus, I plan on bringing some new items to the shop over the next few months (stickers, new post cards, and maybe even mouse pads; among other things), so please keep checking back!  I am also still listing original illustrations.

Some Items of Note:

*Up-Coming Events*

West Texas Table Top Con (Aug. 15-16) – I will have an artist booth.  Please stop by & visit!

*Commissions*

Commissions are now on hold until after West Texas Table Top Con.  I will make an announcement when they open back up.  Thanks for your inquiries!

*Art Trades*

Due to my tight schedule, I am on hiatus as far as art trades go.  I will also make an announcement when/if I am ready to do them again.

Thank you so much for all of your support & as always, thanks for reading! x – Dez

5 Fandom Friday: Favorite Spinoff Ideas

5 Fandom Friday

I’ll preface this by saying my viewpoints will be controversial to other fans that share the same fandoms because I am biased about my favorite characters. lol  Also, I hope some of these aren’t spoilers but if they are then please forgive me.  I know not your extent of knowledge in these fandoms!

This week the topic is 5 Favorite Spinoff Ideas.  Here we go!

5.) – Buffy – The New Watchers Council

I will freely admit that I do not read the comics, which are supposed to be a continuation of both the Buffy/Angel series’.  No, I do not know what has gone on in them & I only take my knowledge from the television shows.  I tried to read the Buffy comic when it first started and only got a few issues in before feeling frustrated with the depictions of some of the characters….So, that being said, based on the knowledge I have, one spinoff that I always thought would be fun is seeing a new (more progressive) Watchers Council formed under the management of Giles & Andrew.  I think there’s a lot that could happen there and I love Joss Whedon’s ability to make regular people just as much of heros even without their own “superpowers”.

4 & 3.) Parasol Protectorate – Lyall & Biffy – Lord Akeldama

tumblr_m94867tLWv1rols59o1_500 pic20140409204525_zpsff3f2bd7

This one is a two-for.  I had to use pictures from the manga adaptation (Fan art on these guys is greatly lacking!  I will have to remedy that myself, methinks…) but I’m really talking about the novels.  I think Lord Akeldama is everyone’s obvious choice for a spinoff series.  He’s powerful, sassy, and endlessly mysterious.  I would also like to see another spinoff series set in the future (once they’re back in each other’s lives *if you’ve read it then you’ll understand the stipulation*) and what adventures they might get wrapped up in then.

2.) Ghostbusters – Rookies

ghostbusters-Proton-packs

Sorry, but I hate that we’re having a reboot.  I choose to believe that it’s an alternate dimension story so that I don’t have to get all upset about it.  All I wanted was a sequel & I would have settled for a spinoff.  Ghostbusters has been my #1 fandom since I was a toddler.  As a teen (back when AOL was the bomb . com), I used to write fan fics and RPG in AOL chat groups.  Now I make fan art.  One thing that I wrote about back in the day was the idea of a spinoff.  Obviously, Oscar could be groomed up to be the new lead and insert some other college-age characters (both male & female), give them their own franchise, and there you go.  I wrote about it a long time ago & honestly, I would have liked to have seen something like that in tv series form.  Think CW show (and even some original character cameos & guest appearances).  It could’ve been great.

1.) True Blood – New Blood

new blood

I honestly miss this show more than I thought I would!  I need my Eric & Pam fix!  The show title even writes itself, New Blood.  With such dynamic personalities and so much character history and development there would always be more that could happen with these two.  I’d love to see them on my screen again.

What do you think?  What are your favorite spinoff ideas?

5 Fandom Friday: Favorite Aliens

5 Fandom Friday

This week it’s all about favorite aliens!  Now, I’m sure I’m probably going to think of some more later & be like, d’oh!  But I’m only on my first cup of coffee.  So, anyway, here are 5 of my favorite aliens:

5.) Loki

Loki_promo

I’m in Loki’s Army, so of course I have to include him.  Plus, he has mad style.

4.) The Mooninites

Mooninites

Back when Aqua Teen Hunger Force was still ATHF.  I don’t even know what they’re calling that show these days or if these characters are even still on it.  But back in the day, I could not get enough of them.  They were hilarious.

3.) Dr. Zoidberg

Everyone+else+gets+a+father+why+not+zoidberg+_96d24aefcaed04db05caee622222d9c4

You love all the other aliens, why not Zoidberg?

2.) Spock

star-trek-spock-5

Does a half-human half-vulcan count?  If so, Spock definitely gets one of the top spots on my list.

1.) The Doctor

Tenth-Doctor-2-04162015

I think if you’ve ever watched this show at all then you have to have The Doctor as the #1 alien on your list.  He’s everything we could ever want an alien to be. (Yes, I am using David Tennant because I’m biased. lol  I love all the Doctor’s regenerations but The Tenth will always be my favorite.)

Who are your favorite aliens?  Feel free to play along on your blog & link in the comments!  Thanks for reading! x – Dez

SDCC News

Hopefully, someday I’ll get to take a trip to SDCC but for now I’m thrilled that my art will get to take the journey for me!  I’m very excited that my Crimson Peak inspired illustration will be included in this book (cover art above) that will be given as a gift to Guillermo del Toro, Tom Hiddleston, Charlie Hunnam, Jessica Chastain, & Mia Wasikowska at SDCC!!

I will be sure to do an update if they get any pictures of them receiving the book.  I am beyond thrilled to be a part of this as I’m very much looking forward to the film and I love del Toro & the entire cast.

If you’d like a print of the artwork for yourself, it’s in my Etsy shop.  And also available on Society6 as various products.

Are you attending SDCC this year?  What are you most looking forward to?  I always like to follow along with the footage on social media.

Also, West Texas Table Top Con is fast approaching so I will be busy getting things ready for my artist’s booth there!

Thanks for all of your support! x – Dez

Studio Sessions Vol. 6: Copics & Oil

jurassic world blue starbucks

I’ve seen a lot of talk about the product placement in Jurassic World.  It didn’t bother me at all because they were at a theme park, so obviously, it was appropriate.  Although, as an avid Starbucks addict I couldn’t help but be distracted every time someone was holding one.  I like to think Blue would enjoy a white chocolate mocha as much as I do.

  doctor mewdr purr venkcatlokitty

I also drew some more Cosplay Kitties which you can now find in my Etsy shop.  Doctor Mew has been the most popular so far.

red black oil painting

I broke out my oil paints over the weekend.  It had been a few months since I’ve painted something & I wanted to add some abstract art in these colors to our decor.  Now I just have to wait 5 million years for it to dry and then I plan on sticking it in a gold frame.

Thanks for reading & stay creative! – Dez

Belated 5 Fandom Friday: Characters With My Favorite Fictional Fashion

5fandomfriday1-990x400

I’ve seen ‘5 Fandom Friday’ on a couple of other blogs (you can check out Hello Quirky’s picks for example) & have been wanting to participate so I figured I’d go ahead and jump in!  Of course, it’s not Friday…and I also foresee myself not actually posting these on time so I just went ahead and modified the header. *wink*

1.)  Aunt Wendy – Witches Of East End

wendy witches of east end fashion

Why did they have to cancel this show?  It was so good!  I was endlessly inspired by Wendy’s boho-hip style.

2.) Emma Swan – Once Upon A Time

emma-still

A lot of people would probably choose to raid Belle’s closet on this show but I think Emma’s style is more versatile.  I appreciate that they have a female lead that isn’t running around in sundresses & heels all time.

3.) Sookie Stackhouse – True Blood

sookie-stackhouse-and-grane-denim-halter-dress-gallery

Not that sundresses & heels are always a bad thing!  Sookie does seem to understand that sneakers are a better choice most of the time.  I love her modern-retro wardrobe that’s filled with feminine attire that I would definitely wear.

4.) Drusilla – Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Drusilla-Spike-Angel-promotional-images-buffy-the-vampire-slayer-12513398-2073-2560

I’m fairly certain that Drusilla is to blame for sparking my love of gothic fashion during my teenage years.  I love her dark ethereal style!

5.) Dean Winchester – Supernatural

I’m not going to sit here and pretend like my closet isn’t full of plaid shirts thanks to this guy…

Feel free to play along too!  Who are your favorite fictional fashion trendsetters?
