Commissions are open!

I am excited to announce that commissions are officially open! I am offering 4 slots at a time and they are first come first served. It’s $25 for a digital pencil sketch and $45 for a digital color illustration. These are for 1-2 people, waist (or bust) up, and additional people, babies, pets, etc. are negotiable (with the potential for a fee increase depending on what you’re wanting).

You’ll receive two high resolution digital files: one with the names and signature, and one without. These are suitable for posting online and printing out if you’d like. Please message me if you’d like to commission a portrait! You’ll provide me with one or two reference photos and I’ll provide an ETA for your finished product. Thank you so much for your time!

Patreon + Products Announcement!

Hello! I’ve been working steadily for the past few months on some big steps for my art and at last I’m ready to make the announcement.

First, I have a Patreon! If you like my work and are interested in supporting me you can do so there. If you like my work and aren’t able to contribute to my Patreon then sharing it with others still makes a huge difference and is greatly appreciated.

Supporting me on Patreon means you’ll see all of my comics a day earlier than the rest of the internet – so exciting – and you can do this for only $1 a month! In addition to early access you’ll get insight on other projects that I’m working on such as commission illustrations, ideas I have planned, and more. If you support at a $5 or higher tier then you’ll also get access to bonus comics 😮 ! These bonus comics will be more mature and/or absurd content, stuff that leans toward the personal side that I don’t want to post on the internet for free ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Currently I plan on one bonus comic a month, but I haven’t done any yet since I’m working on getting ahead on regular Tuesday/Friday comics. I have a lot of great ideas written down and waiting for me, though. Thanks for your patience and understanding!

(Each tier also comes with a reward – check them out!)

Secondly, I’ve put a number of my designs and illustrations on Redbubble! I’ve shopped at Redbubble for years and I find their products to be of good quality and I feel comfortable selling my designs there 🙂 I’m working on adding new items, so check back every so often. The majority of my creations work best on totes, pillows, and phone cases, and I’m still working on adequate shirt designs.

Someday I’d like to be creating/printing/packing/shipping my own products, but until I have the time and resources I’ll be going through services such as Redbubble!

I would be most grateful if you would check out my Patreon and Redbubble pages, and if you like what you see please consider sharing it around with your friends! I’ve set an ambitious goal of getting 100 individual contributors to my Patreon by the end of the year, and I can’t do it without your help! Thanks for your time and attention 😀

Style Practice

No comic today BUT that’s because I’ve spent the bulk of this week starting to learn a new art style! I would love to create illustrations that have more whimsy. Soft and magical colorscapes in which I can explore freely, and get away from the thick black outlines! It’s the only thing I know and it’s time to change that 😊

The artists I follow have been on a roll with the #drawthisinyourstyle project that’s going around! It has been a treat for me 🍭🎨 It got me considering the fact that I’m still working on my style, and I would like to be able to do more than one. I decided to do some style practice by copying (to the best of my ability) some pieces from favorite Instagram artists. It was incredibly helpful and a super fun way to learn!
