Something Stupid Every Day

In which Cole Ott attempts to draw, write, or otherwise create something every day.

I post a lot of rough sketches here. All "finished" work is cross-posted to:
» my main blog (art)
» thinking in public (writing)

Other stuff: » @coleott on twitter » inspiration/reblog blog » shop

Sometimes I just wanna draw the band I’m listening to as magical warriors. Sometimes I just want to draw nothing but magical warriors forever.

I wrote a weird twine poem-game today for Ruin Jam (a game jam about “ruining videogames” muahaha) called “we are in a burning house and I am taking off your clothes.” I’m not sure if I’m going to polish and post it, though.
