Sonic Boom - Team Work by tea-bug

So this is my entry to a contest over at Sonic-Boom-HUB

The general theme was ‘Team Work’ - working together to accomplish a task. Here they are umh… ‘accomplishing’ one of my most hated tasks, the washing up.


Igarashi Yumiko


Send no flowers, Justin Fox



Little Shop of Horrors

i just showed this movie to my kids for the first time over the weekend. they loved it.


do you think when fish get thrown back by fishermen, they swim around yelling about alien abductions and the other fish stop talking to them?



More reasons to love cats.

What are cats even.

Hayward, the hopeless farmhand

Whaaaat…One of the new Sonic Boom secondary characters is called ‘Hayward’ - I am changing my full title to “Hayward, the hopeless farmhand”

"Hayward, the hopeless farmhand, is a dreamer who constantly wants to go above and beyond to prove himself to others around him. Always looking to be a part of something bigger, something that makes a difference, he is in search for a reason or way to help to just show what he can do. Hayward is in Rise of Lyric."


(makes sorta sense, since my surname means ‘keeper of fences’ Hay-Ward - aka farm hand)

Expect fanart.

A Question of Time by tea-bug
Another OC who I hope to introduce you to soon(!) I’ve been doing a few pictures of my other characters recently so I can get to know them & their stories a bit better : )

If you regulary follow my work & think she has a few features in common with my character, Alice - you’d be right because they’re related : )

Introducing the world’s first Sonic the Comic convention! Celebrating over two decades of STC, print and online!

Free gifts, Special Guests, a building full of Boomers!


Good, because you need to help us make it a reality. We’re counting on you, Boomers!

I have already expressed my excitement all over my FB so now I’ll do it all over tumblr *_* (oh, & it currently clashes with Expo but I’d totes rather go to this!) Edit: Backed the hell out of that kickstarter! *excitement*

Need new anime please!


I want to watch more anime, so here’s a list of the anime I’ve watched (what I rated it from 1-10) so if you like anime similar to what I like please suggest it!

Please no sports, romance, or any series longer than 30 episodes (52 if it’s really good).


  • Akame ga Kill! - 8
  • Sailor…

Gunbuster (6 eps & you can follow it with Diebuster which is also 6 eps), Neon Genesis Evangelion (26 eps. Then movies & re-builds if you fancy it) - some classics!

Something big!


Hey Boomers! Do you want to hear some ridiculously exciting news? Then definitely keep an eye on our social media sites tomorrow morning!

*makes various wishes*

what medium do you use for your art?

Hi there! For inking I use Uni Pin fineline, Staedtler pigment liners, Kuretake Zig fine liners or Copic multiliners. For colouring I mainly use alcohol based markers (Pro-markers, Flex markers, Copics, Kuretake) pencil crayon & various gel ink pens. Photoshop &/or Pixlr for editing : )

Hope that might help!
