|I wish I could personally thank every single one of you who has shown me and my art support, it's not always possible to reply personally to each comment I get. I do read every single one!|
So I must give a heartfelt thank you here and let you know how much I appreciate all of your kind words and support over the years.
I hope continuing sharing with you little pieces of my soul through my art is thanks enough
Supanova Melbourne and Gold Coast!So, like someone who never wants to get any sleep, I hopped on a plane to the Australia, for a convention or two
Melboune and Gold Cost Supanova!
My Economy Class flight was more like having my own private jet No one wanted to go to Melbourne this time of year from London, as it turns out it's colder over here XD
Obligatory photo of pretty clouds out the window:
While trying to work out how to get to the Convention Showgrounds from Southern Cross Station, the first suggestion I got was to take a helicopter to Batman park. That is how cool Australia is
I haven't seen any spiders or crocodiles or anything that could kill me with a bite yet (unless you count the lady at the bus stop with the teeth)
I would share with you my beautiful photos of Melbourne,
My work as an artist takes me all over the UK, to many events and conventions, I get to meet a lot of interesting people and love my job!|
For my upcoming schedule please check below.
~I couldn't do this with out your support! Thank you all so much *bows deeply*
|Where did you learn to draw?|
I'm completely self taught! My high school art teacher told me cartoons were not art, so I didn't peruse any formal education in art. My drive came from within, to draw something into existence has always been intoxicating for me.
Where do you get your inspiration?
Drawing is the way I can best express myself. My art is like a visual diary, documenting feelings, thoughts and events. I find my inspirations all over, most often in everyday life, or the need get crap out of my head onto paper.
Please don't let me darker work fool you. I'm naturally a cheerful person; who has struggled with tough times. During the hard times I use drawing as an escape, a way to vent and put my story on paper, to be constructive with the destructive thoughts. It's been a life saver.
Do you do commissions?
Never, sorry. If someone is controlling my pen with their money I find it stifling. Staying independent is really important to me. I need to tell my own stories, an I know you guys appreciate seeing original work
Do you do requests?
No, sorry. See above. Minus money. This includes drawing you XD
What tools do you use?
PhotoShop CS6 and SAI, and a Wacom intuos3 drawing tablet, or my snazzy new Cintiq Companion. I recommend looking at Wacoms 'Bamboo' range if you're just starting out
Do you read your comments?
Every. Single. One. The support and feedback you give me is beautiful and often overwhelming I'm truly sorry I cannot reply to everyone (If I did I would never get any drawing done XD) but I read them all, and so many of you have touched me more deeply then you'll ever know
Can I use your art for something personal/non profit?
Please do! I love it when people use my art for wallpapers/backgrounds/tattoos/scrapbooks
I also love to see my work shared, as long as credit is provided
Can I use your art for my commercial product?
No. You may not use my art for your financial gain.
Can I do a school assignment about you?
What an honour ^-^ Please feel free to, though I'm sorry I can't personally answer questions, I have covered a lot in my full FAQ: fav.me/d5x4z8h
Can I create something inspired by you?
Wow, yes! I adore seeing works I helped inspire Please do. Stuff like this makes my day
Where can I buy prints?
