Whew! Life has been happening and I haven’t been able to blog as much (like all my other excuses). However, I have come with great news! I will be attending two shows this year so far.
First one will be:
Second one will be:
So yea. I am super excited and I definitely will be showing a ton of #ATCs because I can’t stop making them. I hope to make a few newer prints, but for now, I am finishing up a few series. Anyways, thats what’s new so far. I will continue to update when I can (and remember) and don’t forget to support my #patreon if you like. Thanks a bunch!
So its 2018! I am excited about the new year and eager to move forward in my art profession. I’ve also started to make a few ATCs, or Artist Trading Cards if you prefer. It is very addicting and fun. I saw some artists at the last con I went to who had like boxes full, and I thought that was cool. So keep a look out for some sweet cards created by your truly!
Hey all! So I just finished some Christmas #commissions that I will be sending out this week. I also started to try out these #Tombow brush markers on these original prints. I am still trying to get the hang of them and figuring out if I want to use them long term. Kinda as an alternative to digitally coloring them. So far I like them, but like I said, I need to continue to practice a bit more. Anywho, in case I don’t write a post before the year is over, MERRY HOLIDAYS and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
P.S. If you want to see a sneak peek of the commissions, it’s on my Instagram. And don’t forget to visit my #Patreon page!
I’ve decided to create a #patreon page. I got the idea from a few fellow upcoming artists because I’ve actually never heard of it. So far it is pretty neat, although it gets a little hard trying to figure out what kind of rewards to give. I basically made it to allow any one who likes my art the opportunity to support me. Everything will go to funding art supplies, art shows, and creating more art. I Anyway, if your reading this stop by the page a become a Patron and it will be greatly appreciated!
Hi all! OK. So I promise I’ve been trying to catch up with #Inktober and all, I’ve just been super behind. On a good note, #CentralCon was great! It was hosted by Hairy Lion Comics at the Jamaica, Queens Central Library. Lots of people showed up and enjoyed the art. I also gave bookmarks to the kids (on account of the library not letting us sell anything for whatever reason). Despite that, I actually have two potential (don’t want to get my hopes up) clients that are interested in working with me on some children’s books. So let’s hope this is a beginning to a new opportunity! All in all, very successful and enjoyed every minute of it (Photos courtesy of Manuel Patino). Next up: Winter Con!
I promise that I’ve been making art for the past few days! I am participating in #Inktober this year so I’ve got things to show ya (but you can look on my Instagram or Facebook as well. Anyways, I will be at an event this Saturday called PlanetX hosted by The NYC Grind. It is an all female art and lifestyle type of event so it should be fun. Stay posted for pics!
Blue Jay Con at Rego Park Public Library went well thanks to Hairy Lion Comics. It was pretty slow on account of the horrible weather. I guess the amount of people who would have normally attended the back to school programs that day decided to stay home since the programs were cancelled. Oh well, I did get a few more people to look at a few things and follow my work on social media so thats is still a win for me. I will keep you updated on the next showing coming up on October 28th Halloween weekend!
It’s been awhile since my son and I have drawn something, so last night he suggested we draw again. He decided we should draw another FNAF character of course: Nightmare Halloween Balloon Boy (pics below). I admire how good he is getting. Enjoy!
So here is a sneak peek of some fan art that I want to show at Blue Jay Con. Hope you enjoy!
So, I keep forgetting that I need to update my blog posts!!!! Anyway, I went to my very first Artist/Illustrators Convention, QV Con, at the Queens Village Public Library hosted by Hairy Lion Comics. It was very eye opening for me and I think gave me the little push that I needed to not be afraid to put my art out there. Although very small, I did manage to sell a few things so that was a big confidence boost! I now feel like I have a little bit of practice on how to talk to people about myself and my art. This also showed me that there are people who like my stuff enough to buy it (instead of just myself and family!). So yea, I’ll be attending another on this Wednesday, September 6th from 2-5pm at the Rego Park Public Library if any of you read this and feel like stopping by!
