Welcome to my FAQ

I'm a freelance digital color/ traditional ink/ happy pencil artist living in the US south
It's just me and my one lovely agent Shannon Associates.
(occasionally bunnies, birds, and frogs come by to say hi! =)

Where can I buy your stuff:

I have only 2 places with my prints, occasional bookmarks, and books online (its super rare for me to sell originals): My store and a store for Magic The Gathering. Because of contract obligations I can't sell my art on any free sites (ex: Red Bubble/Zazzle/Instagram etc).

What media do you work in? How big are your originals?

Pencil : mechanical pencil. Sizes : 0.3, 0.5, and a 1.1. With Pentel or Kuru Toga leads at 2B and B. Going to try Neox Graphite. Generally on the look out for a smooth dark line. Always love the Kuru Toga mechanical pencils.

Ink : I work with Copic Multiliner SP 0.05, 0.03 and 0.1. I also use a white gel pen, the Uniball signo.

Color : for my book illustrations, I use Photoshop with a Cintiq. I do the drawings by hand then scan them to paint digitally. My online color sketches (seen on Twitter and Instagram) are usually done in copic marker and pens ( copic sp multiliner or Faber Castell size F) or in Photoshop.

Size : I work small, many of my online sketches are done in a 5x7 hardbound sketchbook. The White Rabbit shown is about 3 inches tall. Most of my client work is done to size. I work bigger on covers and things that need to look tighter when finished.

For the White Rabbit, I colored the lines brown in Photoshop then set it to multiply and painted under the lines

Below: Drawn by hand then digitally painted in Photoshop (like above).
reads: top left then down
I used light and color in here to help the story. Light for eye direction, emotional indication, and symbolic meaning. Red was both for the climax/potential danger and historically accurate to the area (I enjoy doing research)

What cards have you done?

I did Twilight Sparkle for the Magic the Gathering card, 2 cards for Duel Masters and cards for Bella Sara.

Do you take commissions?

About commissions: I am occasionally open to commissions around my deadlines, it can be a wait. They can be in pencil/pen/digital paint or copic marker, size would be around 5x7 or 8x10. Will consider animals or pet portraits (past examples: Bunny Queen, Ballerina Fox, Bunny warrior, and tiny elephant with flower)

These are both pet portraits, I was asked for the top bunny to be doing Eskrima martial arts (digital color) and the bottom to be based around the Queen with a big dewlap (copic markers).
