This year was our third year of making 100 Things to Draw When You’re Bored, and just between us weirdos, we fell a little behind. So! We asked some of our very favorite artists to help out with the last 25 or so items on the list, and WOW, did they come through! Wait until you see these babies!
First up is our abundantly talented friend Sal Scheibe, a graphic designer and illustrator from Ontario, Canada who shares our love for the strange and twisted. From our 100 Things to Draw list, she tackled “Gladiator Mascara” (#100), “Runaway Bride” (#55), and “Zombie Head Games” (#82):
Feeling inspired, she added “You’re Not Leaving the House in That” (#51), which totally cracked us up:
#49: Awkward Proposal (sooooo awkward)
And finally, for her grand finale, she drew #53: Disney-Inspired Drag Princesses:
Next up is a man we always claim to be stalking, even though we’re not really. (Seriously, we always stay on his neighbor’s side of property line. That one time when Sarah tripped doesn’t even count.)
Joe Cope is a professor, as well as an artist, and he has the most wonderfully dark and dazzling things living inside his head. Here are his takes on The Four Kittens of the Apocalypse (#92), Cupid vs. Krampus (#72), If electrons were sure, but not positive (#95), and the Sin of Pride (#75):
Joe’s art is all over our houses, and it can be all over yours, too, if you check out his Etsy shop. You can also follow his progress on his excellent blog: http://joeslines.blogspot.com/
Jamal Hansen / BurningThirteen
Our friend Jamal Hansen not only did some drawing for us, but he also wrote his own bit! Woo! Jamal rocks! And he says . . .
The Slumbering Herd
Our friend Cindy is a Chicagoland artist who does brilliant animals, cityscapes, ladies in elaborate dresses, and whatever else she sets her mind to! For us, she drew #84: Get Well Soon, Dracula!
She also drew #70, Pet Shop Boy – He’s had enough of scheming and messing around with jerks.
Cindy has quite a following on her blog, The Slumbering Herd. The women of wonderstrange never miss a post!
Our buddy TF Balding is an artist living and working in Arkansas, and she has the most delicious dark side! We love all of her work, but her fairy tale illustrations are some of our favorites. She drew two of the deadly sins: Gluttony and Lust.
Check out more of Tanya’s work at “The Creep Factor,” her Etsy shop, where she has fabulous artwork in a range of sizes, as well as great art magnets.
Our friend oddbreed is a West Coast artist whose love for two-headed girls and other circus freaks has brought us no end of happiness. Here’s her take on “We’re Not Twins”:
Eraserqueen is an artist and a graduate student who also holds a full-time day job, quite possibly as a superhero. We’re longtime fans (and collectors) of her work! For us, she drew the sin of Wrath:

Miss Kitten Heart
Malin is a Swedish sweetheart and one of our favorite mixed media artists. She took Dancing With The Planets (#67) off our hands and blasted it out of the atmosphere!

Saundra is an amazing watercolor artist who rocks those paints so hard that it should be illegal. She also rocked Baby New Year pretty hard (#68)
You can find more of her work at http://www.waughtercolors.com/. Be prepared to be blown away!
Sarah finished us off this week with Bad to the Bone (#59), Sin of Envy (#75), My Favorite Darwin Award (#86) – the one where the guy swigged gasoline out of a salsa jar and then lit a cigarette, and Reasons to Avoid Children (#88).
