Hey everyone,

Just wanted to put a post out there for all the places I tend to show up if you're on them. Generally if you google "stablercake", that's me, but here's some links:

Biting The Bullet

I forgot how awesome colored pencils are. They're...really really awesome.


Thursday, June 28, 2012

Uh well it’s hideous but it’s the only thing I’ve painted in the last couple of weeks (Jason gave me an iPad the lovely thing so I’ve been occupied). I used house paint on this. House paint is REALLY HARD TO PAINT LINES WITH although it would be better if I weren’t painting on something so small.
Don’t worry, the record was originally Jimmy Swaggart so basically garbage.

K-Hole Peep Show

Welp, I ran out of Peep Shows on Netflix last week and got sad. Today I learned that Superhans's name is actually Superhans when I thought it was Superhands.

 Superhands is a WAY cooler name.

False Idols III

Forgot to post this one, an update of an oldie, sold this one recently actually.

Admittedly I almost miss it...

Piggy Hunt

I need to stop using orange it never works.

I'm glad I have a piece with a piggy in it though, I do like piggies and the lady is just so mad (…but the likelihood she’ll have piggy for dinner is pretty high)

Hostel Intentions

A beer label for a friend of mine who now runs a growing local brewery ("Danger Brewery" here in Indy), this label is for a beer of his creation “Hostel Intentions” (this isn’t the completed design obvs, just the image), he’s off to St. Louis this week so if you’re in that area keep an eye out :U

Afternoon of the Faun Pt 2

So this is an illustration of a scene from Afternoon of the Faun (1910 Russian Ballet, sort of “modernism” for the ballet world). This scene, in short, is the title faun character watching on a rock as the nymphs he tried to seduce disappear from his view. At the end of the ballet, the faun basically ballet-style humps a rock and it was OH SO CONTROVERSIAL at the time. I tried to make him look rock humpy too, but I’m not sure it came across as well as I’d hoped.

I do like all of my lines though, that background took FOREVER and I had to do ALL the research on back muscles (just to bend the rules anyway). I liked having a piece with a background though, it was a nice change.

Crested Geckos

Upon visit to a little liquor store we're not usually around to visit, my boyfriend and I met a gentleman behind bulletproof glass who recently bought an iguana. Her name was Iggy (the lizard, not the man) and although I was disappointed in the lack of creativity in her name, he put her through the swively glass door and we got to pet/play with her. Well, Jason of course being allergic to fluffy animals was pleased as punch that a pet existed that didn't hold the danger of allergies and was determined to get a lizard.

With a little research, we learned crested geckos are THE BEST geckos and bought a little baby one at a local reptile show. We named him Marvin. They have no eyelids so they lick their eyeballs.

Marvin looks most like the one on the bottom.

The end C:

Shark Boy

Used an online monster generator, this one actually made me spit out yogurt with laughter

“Bored shark boy who wears a school girl uniform and needs income”

Bombardier and Child

HONESTLY this was born of too much fallout 3 hurdurh. I justified it as being compositionally similar to "Madonna and Child" but since I'm sort of a garbage draw-er it ended up not as similar as I'd have liked.

But despite it not following my plans, I still like this piece. I'm trying to add more angularity and lines in my work that aren't so beat-you-over-the-head in thickness.

Plus it's an almost semblance of a background! Be amazed :O

Goat Imps

FINALLY done with this painting. As simple as it is in terms of colors, the damn thing took so long to get all the whites and blacks JUST SO

Ok so just some weird conjoined goat imps, chillin', I wanted to semi-replicate a printmaking look and I think I did ok, it's not perfect. It's pretty cool in real life though, it's about 12" x 24"

The left one clearly isn't having the right one's shit. I named them Flotsam and Jetsam because Jason asked what their names were. It was a few nanoseconds from being Batman and Robin so I think I made the right decision.

Stack of Dogs

Mostly just a monster dog because of boredom (crayolas again) but this sorta relates to old drawings of “stack of dogs” I used to make as a little kid. I made a dog mouth once out of an acute angle (like you do when you’re 5) and just kept making a bunch on top of eachother like a zig-zag and when I added teeth I added teeth to all the angles, I can’t remember who called it stack of dogs, one of my parents probably.
So green dog monster yeah the end


So I figure I need to do a comic and I'm exploring some ideas with this character. His name is Beneath (Benny for short) and that's his rabbit I haven't named yet.

He was born in an underground society of his species (which I haven't named yet) who are all red with long noses and have varying lengths of tail. My theory is they split off post-ice age and adapted a little differently for their lives underground, went deeper into the caves instead of coming out like humans. For years they traded with humans and stayed relatively in touch, there's some half-and-halfs here and there (gonna claim gingers have their genes a bit lol) and after a while tended to be blamed for maladies like dead livestock or plagues or what have you and eventually in the middle ages were labeled as demons.

I figure after the whole "demon" thing they give up on them and just stick around underground and the only sightings are labeled as cryptozoological at best, aliens and things.Anyway, I'll flesh out more of that when I get to posting some more stuff on it.

So this is Benny and a bunny in the clothes he wears above-ground (which I realized looks like the guy from that DOS game Treasure Mountain hahaha).

OK TOO MUCH TEXT more later when I draw more of the designs and get some story fleshed out.

Ponies and Monsters

Decided work was for CHUMPS today and used some 3 inch crayola colored pencils that were given to me in a crumpled Walgreens bag to draw this pony zebra. The crayolas are only in weird colors like I have 2 teals and a green metallic and various colors of opaque orange but I don’t have any red, so I decided to draw an interpretation of a My Little Pony I had as a child since she’s weird colors too. It was the only one I had and eventually I mohawked her mane (which was apparently pink and not green, I looked it up after I drew it oops - here's the toy I had)

Guess she’s gotten a bit on in years but she’s still alright in my book. She made a good mount for my street sharks and extreme dinosaurs. On the ride home to the little tykes dollhouse. Through the streets lined with Jengas and paved with the occasional curled-up dead centipede.


And a monster because I got bored.
