2022 Art — an incomplete survey

Some Patreon stationery

This post is a non-exhaustive round-up of 2022’s art — mostly projects published, as there are of course also projects completed but which I can’t show or can only discuss indirectly, and so on. (For writing, see 2022 Writing Update.)

I’m almost entirely certain I have missed some significant milestones — I did lose a chunk of time and focus to being unwell. And I definitely have worked on a lot of other art that Has Not Yet Been Revealed.

This post is quite long, because of the images, so if you’re reading on the blog, the rest is below this cut:

Flight, by Angela Slatter and illustrated by me, was published by PS Publishing!
Tiny ink drawings of house, sheep, toad
Lots more art in the Wilderlore process post and interviews

Illustrator battle at Where the Wild Things Are bookshop

12 tiled fairytale patterns
Twelve calendar designs, with multiple colourways

Many observation journal drawings — and many observation journal posts, although primarily with pages from previous years. I need to hurry up and gain some ground on that posting schedule!

Rolls of wallpaper with skeletons and trees
Many more designs uploaded to Spoonflower and Redbubble

A reasonable amount of sketching (there are several galleries below, one per event).

TV sketching — see the tag or the gallery below

And some TV sketching: see the tag or the gallery below.

And many and various projects for patrons.
