MOVED! MOVED! MOVED! MOVED! MOVED!

I intend use my new tumblr as a means of posting work I don’t feel fits my portfolio yet as well as things I like and things that make me think.  So lots of fandom stuff and puppies, probably.

If you prefer just to see finished art, go HERE

Apologies in advance!  I’m going to be reblogging this for a few days.  Thank you all for supporting me here at sir-fish, but it’s time to move on.  :)  

Much love,

CSO

Belatedly, if you’re still following this blog and would prefer not to see this appear again, please tumblr savior ‘sir-fish is moving’ — thank you!

HEADS UPPPPPP I know I am extremely inactive but I’mma hoping to change that so I’m going to be restructuring my social media in the next few days.  Am most likely going to move blogs, so for all you still watching me, stay tuned!

Thank you for all your support thus far, here’s to a fresh start!





I wanted to just draw something smutty involving Kasamatsu, Kise, and tan lines, but then it got all artsy and I don’t know what’s happening anymore.




I took the swimming anime too seriously.

A piece for a constellation-themed book to be released at a later date.  Will post more information as it becomes available.  

Most portrayals of Andromeda in classical art have her struggling against her chains, fearful of the sea monster Cetus and desperately awaiting the arrival of the Hero, Perseus.  But to me, Andromeda was a willing sacrifice, a hero in her own right.  What interested me was Andromeda’s relationship with Cetus and what Cetus represented in the myth besides a mindless devourer of women.  Upon discovering Cetus’ other name, The Whale, it hit me that perhaps Cetus could represent the unknown— the denizens of the deep, the realm beyond human convention.  Thus, I chained Andromeda with the expectations of a maiden, with veils and hair and crowned her with a spiral galaxy and let Cetus be The Whale, the promise of an escape if they can break free from the narrow confines of the Hero’s myth.




I dreamt of mermaids throughout the spring.

I decided that maybe if I finish this piece, I’ll finally have the energy for my homework.  Just maybe.

A VOTRE SANTE is a full color collaborative artbook featuring 18 talented artists from around the world, and focusing on the themes of alcoholic drinks and beautiful men. Some of them chose to personify the drink as a human figure, while others took the theme as a prompt for a narrative. The artistic styles and influences featured in this collection are as varied as the choices of alcoholic beverages, each flourishing with their own individualistic notes and colors.

A Votre Sante debuted at Yaoi-Con 2011 and is a limited run of 100 books.

44 pages | Perfect Bound | Gold Embossed Cover

Please visit our website to purchase the book and see the full artist list



I was asked to participate in an amazing project called “A Votre Sante.”  18 outstanding artists collaborated to create an impressive collection of character illustrations based on what certain alcoholic drinks meant to them.  Because this book debuted at Yaoi-Con 2011, you’ll only find beautiful men within its pages.  You can read more about this project and see the whole spectrum of artists at A Votre Sante.  The book is still available for purchase, so please have a look! 

This is my illustration of the Italian liquor, amaretto.  You can read more about my concept on my new DeviantArt.
