Snowman by Meg Lyman
8×10″ gouache on cold press board
Happy 2015, everyone! I’ve got my art plan all ready to go. Although I want to continue to focus on fine art, one of my goals is to get the 2016 calendar art done early. Here’s one of them!

I saw Airways Brewing’s limited edition Final Departure Imperial Stout at the store, with a sign saying One per Customer. That always gets my attention, at the least. But this one… it has an AIRPLANE on it. And not only an airplane, a sorta decaying, mossy one that hits me right here, man. It might be a 767, which mean it might have CF6 engines on it, and I worked on those a while back. So of course I had to have it. It’s a beautiful dark beer with a coppery head and fruity aroma. It has a very bitter, full taste with a hint of coffee and a smooth brightness. There is a lingering bitter aftertaste, too. Although it’s not my most favorite flavor (I like them sweet), the taste really fits the name and the art. Would recommend ++.

I’m doing a fun little giveaway for the holidays – 2015 calendars! There are three ways to enter:
- Comment here, with some octopus related verbiage so I know you aren’t a spambot
- Reblog my calendar giveaway post on tumblr (meglyman.tumblr.com)
- If you’re my Facebook friend, share my calendar post
You can enter any of those three ways, but only once for each. I’ll pick at least one random winner and send you a calendar before the holidays!
You can also order one at Etsy! And for those awesome people who already bought one this year, you’re automatically entered.
Ends midnight PST on Dec 7.

Jet City Comic Show was fun. I saw lots of Captain Americas, which always makes me unreasonably happy. And I got to meet the local, effervescent, awesome Tiki Stitch who I’ve known online for years. Yay internet people!
Anyway, here are some sketch commissions and doodles from the con. Thanks to everyone who stopped by!

Ghost by Meg Lyman
8×10″ gouache on board
Who knows what tragic fate met this octopus? Was its demise untimely, caused by an errant seal or bird? Perhaps something more sinister… It’s up to you to put this haunted soul to rest by avenging its death.
This was my first time using Multimedia Artboard, and it was fun to play with! Using watered down white gouache on the black board was super fun. It dries more transparent than you lay it down, giving you some cool ragged puddle effects and opportunity for multiple layers. Next time I’ll try painting more opaque on them to see what happens.
