I'm Jay, though many call me Lithium or Lith for short.
I'm a professional artist "on the side," specializing in 2D illustration. My subjects are usually animals or nature, though I'm also fond of doing abstract radial art.
I'm also a hobby photographer, providing my photos as CC0 for creatives to use.
You can find links to my Ko-Fi, Artist Shop, Commissions, Gumroad, and Archive.Org Library at my Carrd link!
Opening up some B&W avatars for a short while, capping slots off at 15 because I don't want these to interfere with my current queue.

Basically an unexpected cost came up but I really want to treat my husband to dinner for his birthday :( I'd like to not pay a bill late just so I can do it
I was just randomly thinking about this last night because some of my latest sketches are getting some really positive reactions from people, and I'm like "it's just a sketch there are errors and I'm just learning!" and I'm seeing that growth from my time as a baby-artist, emotionally as well as technically.
My sketches are now often at that point I'd point and gasp when I was a baby artist. And so I'm proud of myself, but I'm also gaining understanding I wish I had back then.
When I was a baby-artist, I used to look at people's self-proclaimed "doodles" and "sketches" and have that cringey reaction of "OMG how could you call that a doodle/sketch it's magnificent!?!?!?"
What I've learned since is that "doodle" and "sketch" don't act as negative descriptors of art, nor are they indicators of skill or talent.
More roughly, a "doodle" is just a loose drawing for fun, and a "sketch" is an attempt to practice and hammer down details, form, etc.
Remember that fabulous octopus? It’s up on my teepublic store now. c: It is currently on sale now for only two days!!
