I'm a freelance artist and illustrator from Guatemala. I love animals and anthropomorphic art and that's what I work the most on. Studying nature is one of the joys of my life and hope to one day learn enough about nature so that I may translate that knowledge into fantastical worlds of my own.

You can find me on Instagram:

On Facebook, Tumblr, SoFurry, and Deviantart also as Guephren.


Good news: I have found more sneps! Some maneys, bears, foxes, and wolves. No lynxes though, I'm beginning to think they don't really exist.

Before we ended up deep into the woods in a pile of snow, we painted some turquoise water at this medieval mine #livebloggingfromthewoods

That feeling when you search among thousands of your references and find no leggies, bobcats, lynxes, or wolves. :T

I just wanted to share my recent watercolor painting: a treefrog. With this one I was unhappy for the longest time, but I'm glad to have finished it.

I do hope nobody's scrolling through their timeline thinking "Good grief not another flower photo" but I don't think I can apologize. They sure make *me* feel better and I hope they're nice for you too.

FACT: it is ok to be proud of the things you make.

Things keep piling up though, and when you start going through things you realize there's so much left to do.

It's hard keeping everything in mind so I'm taking my time to move everything to a central place, hopefully that'll help in the future so that when I need a ref I'll be able to find things quickly.

Searching through my stuff I've found that I have a lot of reference material.

Wow, if you like you need to check out Vandana Singh ( vandana-writes.com/ ). I'm her short story collection "Ambiguity Machines & Other Stories" atm and they're all *so* good! You can really tell she's a physicist but like all good science fiction she takes that to a whole other level 👌

When I started spending effort on worldbuilding again, I got the recommendation to read "Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind". It's a great read, and I realised just how important it is to pay attention to sociology. I'm seeing missing links in my worlds everywhere now! Anyway, can recommend the book to any worldbuilders out there (and probably any non-worldbuilders too; the book is a fascinating read).

I did this little project where I was asked to include a small presentation of the process. So I included some sketches and thoughts from my design notes. It's not really a #drawingutorial, but I rarely see any design notes floating around online and I know people do do them so I thought I would share.
