Here’s a quick #protip: finding some art that you like on instagram, tumblr, facebook or Google and erasing the background so you can place text all over it for t-shirts, email blasts, promo materials, or flyers does NOT make you a graphic artist. That just makes you someone who lacks creativity and needs someone else’s to boost your own endeavors. And it’s always these same people who crop or erase out your signature/watermark and replace it with their own. My art took hours to create, your wording…? 15 minutes tops, if that. #respect #dontsteal #ask #illustration #HireARealGraphicArtist #illumistrations #illustration
Batgirl (2014), original artwork.
Ever since I’ve had some serious life changes in the past few months, its been a struggle to sit down and find some time to draw a fully complete illustration. And its been sapping my energy in my art downtime to see people stealing my artwork for various purposes, some of which was to make profit off of. But I put that all aside to finally get this finished. Its been sitting as a sketch for the absolute longest, and it feels good to finally get one done.

I entered this art contest at Game Informer magazine late last year and completely forgot about it (the Super Princess Peach motorcycle #illustration)…won like earlier this year and completely forgot about it….and then yesterday in the mail this showed up. I especially like how in the letter it says “while all the items may not be to your liking, hopefully at least some of it will be fun”. At the very least, I have some trade in credit at Gamestop now. #art #artcontest
Wonderfully Natural, original artwork.
Its been so hard to sit down and find some time to draw, especially since my life has taken a dramatic turn in several areas. I haven’t drawn in so long, its gonna take some time to shake some rust off. Hopefully I can fit drawing back into my routine again.

Since my schedule has been considerably more hectic these past like 4 weeks, I haven’t been able to carve out as much time as I would like #drawing. I’ll find a way to fit it in somehow, but in the meantime, here’s a #workinprogress of an #illustration I started a while ago #comics #wonderwoman #nubia
