Anonymous said: Are there any artists that you look up to or idolize, or that inspire you?
Grabbing inspiration from everywhere, I seriously adore art and anyone that creates — arranging a distinctive landscape on paper with charcoal or arranging a harmonious workspace on a desk, I’m in awe of human creativity at large.
Haha, BUT YO, for the painting realm (since that’s my degree, hollaa), I idolize
I probably wouldn’t have batted an eye at seeing Groucho if not for the fact that he shows up in a lot of deenen's art as a resident of Gaomi. I thought that his eyebrows were being drawn that way as a stylistic choice for a long time, until I actually saw him in the game and realized that nope, he really looks like that all the time!
Sneaking around to spy on cooler towns, is he? And don’t let him fool you, he’s claimed pear is his secret ingredient before. I don’t think he’s a chef…
Been a while since I drew a chibi.. Here’s deenen ‘s Mayor in her autumn/halloween outfit. I absolutely loved it so I just had to draw it. That candycorn tie ~ rad
Scope it, scope it, the immensely, intensely talented Yookey has honoured the doofy mayor of Gaomi with her stylistic wonder! I am glowing like radium, all my gratitude to ya, Yookey!

Hey hey~! I imagine it to be a tie but duuuude, I definitely wouldn’t be averse to it being a shirt underneath! That would give me a chance to pop that collaaaa~ Heck yeah, man.
I just started chatting with Walker when GROUCHO AND MARSHAL shared sweaters~! Check out these autumn homies, awhaha^^ I smell another comic a`brewin’…
autumn pumpkin carving party, complete with hot cocoa, scarves, and over-sized sweaters
Revamped all my summer outfits, thought I’d share `em~! MY APOLOGIES if these are too early, I make this stuff in advance to give those villagers some time to get all dolled up (they take weeks to notice these cool new designs!).
Completed illustration trio for the uberly incredible rayquaza128 of his and Yookey's mayor characters hanging and mellowing out in the beautiful autumn scenery. These two are delights and they seem like the chillest ever to just stroll around town with~ Of course, I'm to-the-core in love with the concepts ray gave me so being able to paint in golden, crispy hues like these was virtually candied joy.
I hope you like them, it was truly all my pleasure!
I really can’t thank lovely deenen enough. She takes my ideas and makes them into beautiful pieces of art! And I am so happy I was finally able to get them as prints. They are even lovelier in person. I really wish my photography skills were up to par and I wasn’t using my phone so I could really capture the beauty of her artwork. I love seeing them as sketches and the letter was such a nice surprise. I was already looking forward to receiving this and the letter was just, awesome.
OH OH! Major gratitude for sharing pictures with us! I’m always so nervous things will get bent up or rained on in the post, haha^^ And with all those kind comments, I’m going to orbit earth in glee for the next few weeks, aaa ~\(≥▽≤)/~
Thank you, thank you so much for letting me work with you on so many brilliant illustrations!
Ah, check it! Got super dark and foggy at around 2 PM, I had to share~ I adore seeing the storms roll in. (∩_∩)
Little set of rough concept sketches set in the forthcoming autumnal scenergy! Rayquaza128 had a brilliant bunch of ideas into which I could work the uber fun George and Yookey. Love these two~!
I ran into Kicks way back in June at the the cafe and he mentioned the nights were still kind of chilly. It’s getting chilly out now so, woo! Quick little illustration of him heading back at some unearthly time in the morning, hehe~
Dyed that mohawk orange and changed my worksuit to a candycorn-style one! Really excited to keep the aviator shades, too. They let me feel summery a little longer, hah^^
But man alive, I can’t believe it’s already getting so cool out! It hasn’t gotten above 70 for the last few days! A REAL FALL FOR ONCE?
CHERRY, she’s utterly adorable, I couldn’t imagine her with holes in her socks anyway~
Blowin’ bubbles for my boyz. Marshal’s all up in it, definitely wants a turn. “Mayor’s got the best technique, step off, shorty.”
Mayor Deenen, 05/09/2013
