Anonymous asked: Hello! I'm absolutely in love with your art, especially traditional, your work with color is amazing! May I ask what kind of watercolor do you use?

Thank you so much!  I’ve only recently been consciously experimenting with colour so I’m not too confident in my abilities, but it’s nice to hear you think it’s working out.  For paints, right now I use the Pelikan opaque pan watercolours and Koi tube watercolours.

Anonymous asked: hey there, if you haven't found it yet, Der Wolfsmantel is in the little room next to the illustration 1 room. made me smile when I saw it!

OH?!  I think it’s hanging in the lobby— Unless you’re talking about the one in the professors’ room inside H307, or whichever the heck.  The one hidden in there is the original (the lobby version is a print) and was a gift to one of the profs :^)  Thank you haha ahh warms my heart

HEY!  I was privileged enough to participate in Light Grey Art Lab’s DREAM ARCADE game/exhibition, and the game that I and a bunch of other artists provided level assets for is now online— you can play for free, but consider donating!  There are also prints of all the title art!  I’m playing through it now and it’s AWESOME.  (This is my first time doing anything remotely like this, so it also helps me to see what I have to brush up on for any future endeavours!) (And thank you docvalentine for all your help and support!!)

Big heaping thank-you to the folks at LGAL for allowing me to join in!

The sketchbook I’ve been working in for a few months is now full.  I neglected it here and there due to outside work/other sketchbooks, but I basically kept it with me at all times… and only ripped out one page (which I had been using as a palette.)  So here’s the last of it.

Anonymous asked: Your art style is so unique! Have you found what you are most comfortable with or does your art style change from time to time?

Whoa, “unique”?  Thanks so much!  I’m inspired both by people who have a firm, conscious grasp on the choices that they make (whether that’s one definitive way of working, or an ability to switch to whatever the situation calls for) and those who are willing to let go of any presupposed ideas and see where experimentation takes them.  I try to keep a couple different near and dear styles up my sleeves depending on what feels appropriate.  (This also goes for techniques.)  I spend equal amounts of time trying to make each one feel right to me and see how or where it is best applied.  

I think my art’s changed a lot over the years, but I think even looking at hellaciously old scribbles, I always sort of knew the direction I wanted to take it, even if I couldn’t pointedly envision it then.

(also, I can now attest to INPRNT's print quality— verdict: so quality.)

I had a comic.  I still have it, but only came back into it recently after an unfortunate hiatus.  (It’s the thing that the bulk of my characters are from.) I’m trying to make life changes that will allow it to be more of a focus from here on out!  Please and thank you to anyone who is bearing with me on this.  I know off-and-on-again projects hardly gain much traction, and hopefully, god willin’, I now have the time and the mental state necessary to dedicate to this endeavour.
