I have officially opened a Zazzle shop! It’s been a long time coming, I know. But now the big day is finally here.
You will now be able to find items, posters, and prints of some of my artwork for purchase. New items will be added to the Zazzle shop often, so keep checking back.
Really want to see a particular piece of art up for sale? Just let me know! I am adding new art and new products constantly and would love to get you what you want.
And on the technical side for anyone doing research for their own online stores, I am loving Zazzle. It is extremely user-friendly, and the products seem very high quality. This ease of use will allow me to get more art to you faster. A win for everyone!
Also, stay tuned for a Zazzle shop hosted directly on my site. Should be up and running within the week. Also, an etsy store with some more…interesting… things should be just around the corner.
Here is a sample of some of the pieces I have currently featured:
And, once more (because I have no shame) stop by my Zazzle Shop and give me some love.
Today’s post title is courtesy of the Buffy the Musical episode. I happened to be listening to it in the car this morning and now you all are stuck with it, too. Thrilling, right?
And today’s new art: four original characters done with copic markers! It would have been five, but apparently the 5th is too large a file so it will take some more editing. Something to look forward to, then.
The site got a face lift, and you all get to see some long promised new art. Copic Markers are really a girl’s best friend.
ALSO! USAToday wraps up the first issue of Game Boys. Don’t you want to see what happens to Blake and his friends? Scroll to the bottom of the page to check out the rest of issue one of Game Boys!
You may have seen the sneak peek sketch a few weeks ago and figured out what was coming. A Storm of Swords was my favorite of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series. So of course I’ve been super excited for the third Season of HBO’s Game of Thrones. In honor of this new season, I decided to do some Fan Art of Robb Stark. This was drawn in pencil, inked, the finished with copic markers. And of course, I used the wonderful Richard Madden as the model for Robb. He’s done a wonderful job portraying the King in the North.
For anyone in the Bucks County/Philly area this weekend, come on out to Bucks County Community College’s first Anime con!
For the first time EVER I will be selling prints of some of my more popular pieces–including, but not limited to, Hunger Games, Marvel, Game of Thrones, and Jay and Silent Bob.
Check out the event here:
Back from San Diego Comic Con!
Before I get down to business about the con, I’ve got some new art on the site. Here is just a small taste, so be sure to check around for more.
All right! Back to the con!
First, let me just get this out of the way: it was awesome and everything you will ever dream of. We met some awesome fellow fans and some really cool exhibitors. Everyone was just happy to be there. The good vibes were flying.
So, as some of you may or may not know, I hung out at the portfolio reviews on the first official day of the con (it went well, thanks for asking). While I was sitting there, I thought about how I wish I knew more of what to expect. Each con has their own way of doing these, and sometimes it can be exhausting keeping what’s what in line. I decided to do a write-up of the whole process. I’ve had a few awesome artists give me some helpful advice or materials along the way—shout out to Mike Deodato, you rock!—and if this helps anyone prepare I’ll consider it a job well done.
For some thoughts and musings on the portfolio review scene…. Continue Reading →
More Hunger Games Fan Art!
In honor of Oscar night, I decided to draw Katniss Everdeen in her interview dress. Suzanne Collin’s described it as being made with gem stones, and looking like fire, so I took it and ran. I wanted her to look pretty, but not sexy. Katniss says she can’t pull off sexy. But I still wanted it to function as a dress, too, and not be this wispy thing. Gem stones are not wispy.
So, the girl on fire dress from the Hunger Games.
Buffy and Faith, from Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This was a commission for a friend, but I really enjoyed putting this piece together. He wanted the two women and somehow incorporating ying and yang. So I took that and ran with it, having Buffy and Faith themselves being the symbols, and mirroring it with the sky and the fog.
And Happy Holidays.
This is the winning idea for my holiday contest. Kelly suggested Angel and puppets, and having been on a puppet kick since seeing the Muppet Movie, I couldn’t resist.
So we have Angel, surrounded by a crack team of puppets: Wesley, Fred, Cordelia, Lorne, Gunn, and of course Spike.
Joss Whedon is a genius, but the puppet episode is just brilliant. So I will piggy back on his brilliance to wish you a Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and a wonderful new year.
