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!
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!
It’s hard for me to find time to draw let alone finish all my sketches, but I finally finished this Illustration I started awhile back. I’m trying to get back into it and force myself to find time like I had before. I won’t get anywhere if I don’t sit down and practice, practice PRACTICE (especially with shadows and lighting)! Anyway, enjoy!
I made these illustrations a while back during a Style Challenge. Pretty simple, pick some of your favorite cartoons or artists and try to imitate their style using your own character. I actually really enjoyed it and will probably make another one. A good exercise for me because at times I feel like I don’t have enough time to draw. Gotta change that!
