Not a whole lot has changed really. Just cruising through life the best that I know how.
I’m still writing and drawing on my books, and I’m still creating artwork for my online stores, though I haven’t posted any new art yet.
I’ve been busy with work and trying to save some money to buy more art supplies, which is really hard nowadays it seems like.
I’ve been struggling with the decision to give up art for while in order to get things lined back up and save some cash. I don’t buy a whole of materials and what I do buy goes quickly, especially when my ideas are coming faster than I can get them onto a canvas or into Photoshop. Continue reading What I’m Up To
Painting is something I’ve been teaching myself over the last few years and am just now really starting to get a hang of.
I’m still searching for my own style and voice.
Up until I started painting my go-to medium was pencil and paper, then later came painting with acrylics and watercolors, and finally, I got into digital painting when I purchased my Wacom Intuos Comic graphics tablet, with which I do most of my artwork on nowadays.
I began using acrylic paint mainly due to the fact that it was cheaper than oil paint. But, after using acrylics, I found that I loved using that medium and just stuck with it, and I don’t see myself switching to oil paint anytime soon. Continue reading Art Materials — My Go-To Painting Tools
I know a lot of people have a hard time deciding on which art supplies to use for drawing, thinking they need the most expensive supplies out there. But, in reality, all you need is a yellow #2 pencil (mine are black), a good eraser, and some paper.
But most of the time my artwork is digital, meaning I use a graphics tablet to draw inside editing software, like Photoshop, directly onto my computer. There are few graphics tablets out there, so the best advice I can give you is to do your research and find one that you would feel comfortable with and also fits within your budget if you have one.Continue reading Art Materials — My Go-To Drawing Tools
There’s nothing I hate more about myself than fearing things. Mainly people.
You know that jittery feeling when you’ve had too much caffeine, or you’re walking down the hallway to your first job interview? Yeah, that feeling. That’s the feeling I have when I meet new people, or I have to speak or stand in front of people, or even when my name is called out loud in a group of people.
Hiteto! Nehowaselap’wi yanoli! (HahTeeToh! NeeHohWehSeeLehP’Wah YehNohLah!) Hello! Happy to see you!
Redbubble is a new online store that I’ve opened up to sell my artwork. It’s very similar to Society6 in that my art can be put on various products that the site sells; apparel, device cases, stickers, wall art, home decor, stationery, bags, and gifts.
As of right now, my Redbubble online store is empty until I can start populating the site with my artwork. It will take some time, but keep a lookout for my art to start popping up.
It’s an extra site to get my art out into the world!
I’m also looking into Etsy for selling some of my canvas pieces, but I’m not sure yet. So, if you have any suggestions, please feel free to contact me through email or social, which can be found on my CONTACT page.
