I'm just here to show off, flex my artistic skills, and make friends.
I'd like to think I'm easy to get along with, so don't hesitate to say 'Hi'.

I do accept commissions.
PayPal only please. No points.
Basic drawings, uncolored, start at $20.
Colored and detailed, $50 and up.
Full scene with background, multiple characters, colored, detailed and shaded, etc etc are $100 and up.

I'm not currently accepting requests or trades.
  • Listening to: Memorecks - Bruce Wayne
  • Reading: The Ruins
  • Watching: The Dark Knight
  • Playing: Watch Dogs
  • Eating: popcorn
  • Drinking: ginger ale
I've come to the realization that I don't really enjoy drawing anymore.
It's not fun for me anymore; quite the opposite, it's kind of a chore.
I had hit some rough patches in my life for a while where I absolutely needed to pimp my skills out to put food on the table.
I know some people would be super grateful to have a skill like this to fall back on, and don't get me wrong, I was/am too.
But... now I have a steady job (yay!) and no need to force myself to do commissions anymore. I don't need the extra cash.
It was getting to a point where I felt hostage to certain pieces and I was miserable. The whole ordeal seriously put me off drawing.
Now that I do have this job, attempting to draw for myself still isn't the same as it once was.
I have an image in my head I want to get out, but I'm rushing through it- taking shortcuts, and getting increasingly frustrated all the way through.
It's exhausting, and no longer a stress relief or a hobby. So, probably don't expect any new drawings from me for a while.
Digital design on the other hand is still something I love doing, so my gallery might take a major shift in that direction and I might share some stuff I had worked on a while ago.

Thanks for reading!
