How long did it take you to do that?
I’m bad about sitting down and timing myself to completion on a piece, and I tend to take lots of little breaks, so it varies. I can spend anywhere from 5-10 minutes on a sketch or up to 48+ collective hours working on a very large and detailed piece.
What materials do you use?
I work both digitally and traditionally. Digital pieces are generally done in either Photoshop CC using digital brushes from a variety of sources or Procreate on an iPad Pro. Traditional mediums I prefer include acrylic and resin, gouache when working with cut paper and painting, gold leaf or glitter, pen and ink, and pencil.
Did you go to art school?
No. I took high school art classes and have attended life drawing courses at the Animation Guild in Burbank, CA, but I am largely self taught. I honed my skills over many years and continue to grow and learn by observing the natural world and other artists from whom I draw inspiration.
How long have you been drawing?
I’ve been drawing my whole life, but have had lapses in time wherein I wasn’t necessarily pursuing art. In 2013 I decided to pursue art professionally while maintaining a day job to provide for myself. It’s a struggle to pursue art, but it’s my lifelong passion. I strive every day to achieve my goal of supporting myself with art full time.
Do you take commissions?
Yes! However, I reserve the right to refuse service and/or decline any commission I’m uncomfortable with or just don’t feel like taking :) For freelance/custom art inquiries please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How much does that cost?
Costs of commissions and freelance work vary depending on the complexity of the project and the amount of time I anticipate spending on completion. Please contact me for a custom quote or feel free to purchase pre-made prints and items from my store.
Where can I purchase artwork from you in person?
I typically attend comic conventions 2-3 times a year and take on site commissions as well as selling pre-made prints and other items. Conventions I’ve attended in the past include WonderCon, Anime Expo, Emerald City Comic Con, Rose City Comic Con, Long Beach Comic Con, and Stan Lee’s LA Comic Con. Keep an eye out on my social channels for announcements about what cons I will be attending this year ;)
