Pinned toot

I thought this might be handy. I'm an artist and illustrator inspired by nature, fantasy and distant worlds. I work in digital and traditional mediums. I'll be posting lots of art, things that inspire me and thoughts on my creative journey. I'm also one of the co-founders of the Bird Whisperer Project, so there's also bound to be birds.

Here are some other places to find me:

For the final cover of the Long List Anthology Vol 3 they decided to flip the canvas. That happens sometimes. Here's the original art, The Alchemist. He's probably my best selling print of all time.

So excited!!! The editor of the Long List Anthology just posted a proof of this year's book on Twitter. That's my steampunk fox on the cover! πŸ’™

One of my favorite digital paintings from this year - Autumn Waters. I'm hoping to start the summer painting once I finish this latest commission.

Some have asked me which is my favorite, digital or traditional, and honestly I love them both for different reasons. It's all art. I have no trouble switching between the two mediums. I just want to make things. ❀️

This one is reserved for an Instagram giveaway if I ever break 1000 followers, but I do have prints available.

Here's an update on that small alchemy drawing. It's almost ready for the gold.

I can't believe we are already half-way through November. This year is coming to a close fast. Creatively it's been an amazing year. One of my biggest highlights was winning Best Space Scene in the DragonCon Art Show.

It was the first time I'd shown my scifi art and the reception was amazing. For the longest time I thought I couldn't show my scifi work next to my fantatsy. I thought they were too different, that I had to do one or the other. HAHA!! The crazy things we tell ourselves...

"Art is absolute freedom. There is no path to follow. All you need is the impulse to create."

I keep this above my art table. It's a good reminder.

I have another wip, but that's for a book cover and I can't share that.

My current wip... It's a mini alchemy drawing for a giveaway happening late next week over at the Changeling Artist Collective. 😊

This whimsical dragon was created for the Project (May 2017). On the left is the original reference photo we used and on the right my creation painted in Photoshop.

does anybody have any podcasts they like to listen to when they draw? this could be a thread of suggested ones!

Now that I've got that out of my system, what's everyone working on today? I'm about to start a small graphite piece for a giveaway.

I'm going to retoot my introduction because I'm an artist and it's bugging me that's it's not perfect. So sorry!! πŸ˜‚

I LOVE digital painting, but I think I will always need paper and pencil in my life. ❀️

I have a series of drawings I'm working on called the Alchemy of Graphite. This one is Alchemy of Fate.

I've always found the divide between what we artists love in our portfolios and what others love (and we usually hate) fascinating.
