Velvet Rasputin is not mainstream and we are proud of this fact. We mostly do comics, but it goes way beyond that.

This project’s mission is to create entertaining, accessible and boundary-pushing sequential art fiction that encourages conversations about liberty, culture, violence, politics, sexuality and spirituality. In other words, we create crazy stuff that will make you think.


Velvet Rasputin wants you to question everything.

Creative Commons Character: Cecilia Mayaguez

Cecilia Mayaguez was a character that I wanted to use as a protagonist for a web-only comic before webcomics were a thing. I never really felt it, unfortunately, so Cecilia never got her starring role.  Here are her features: Cecilia has tan olive skin and bright brassy hair. Her idol is Iris Chacon and she has aspirations […]

Creative Commons Characters: Rejected Illustration for Blog That Doesn’t Exist Anymore

I don’t know what this was for. It doesn’t really matter because, the site that I submitted it to no longer exists. The characters designs are charming and could be adapted for something more interesting than sitting on my rejection pile. Scene At A Cafe by Vas Littlecrow Wojtanowicz is licensed under a Creative Commons […]

Creative Common Characters: Thrift Revolution

This was my last attempt at doing anything specific to children. It would’ve been a print/webcomic effort to create a DIY punk-ethos story series designed to teach children financial responsibility, the value of exercise, creativity and ecological stewardship. Unfortunately, the pitch was rejected by its potential patron because he thought the concept was too edgy. I […]

Creative Commons Characters: The Complete Adopt-A-Freak Series.

If you are past your twenties, then you probably remember those cheesy Adopt-A-Cute-Graphic things that were all the rage in the mid-to-late nineties. The characters on this page were my contribution to the bandwagon. There’s no real backstory and the graphics are beyond cheesy, but these transparent GIFs might be useful for idea generation. The animal graphics were […]

Creative Commons Characters: Dogmacatorama (a.k.a. DogMaCatRatma)

This originally started out as Rock N’ Rule fan fiction but it developed a life of its own. Unfortunately, the masters for the original comic series are long gone, and I have very little source material to share. All that remains are these reconstructions of the principal character designs. They’re post-nuclear anthropomorphic  and the have a […]

Creative Commons Character: Blue Snow Elf

I created the Blue Snow Elf as a challenge to myself to make a Luis Royo-inspired character with practical features that would enable her to function in a cold weather environment. I never used her for anything substantial, and the renders are not as developed as I’d like them to be, but she’s neat nonetheless. This snow […]

Comic Creator Tip Round-Up For 10/19/2014

Make sure to keep track of finances, budgeting and take care of the essentials. Feeling secure helps you create consistently. Hunger does not make you more creative. It just makes you produce derivative art that will sell for less than its worth. But if you poverty is your lot, then use your creativity for practical reasons and […]
