Pet Illustration
Did a pen and ink illustration of a good friend's dog Frank for her birthday. Let me know if you want to commission a framed, custom illustration of your fur baby, past or present! I've been doing them for $250, shipping to continental US included.
Character Design - Sci Fi
New character designs for a really exciting new book I'm working on! I'm always game to push the limits of character design, but I also have to make the characters relatable and accessible to the reader.
The bipedal alien (Star Trek aliens, for example) has most of their distinguishing qualities in the head and shoulders. But if you work in quality fashion design, the whole character can become both "the other" and relatable.
SMALL Torchbearer Selfie - B Essig-Peppard
I have the great privilege to have my art published in Pink Progression's new book! It's a collection of poetry and art inspired by the historic, global women's and sister's marches in conjunction with "Pink Progression" exhibits.
The exhibition is travelling at the moment but there are a few upcoming Denver locations where it can be found! 
Its available for purchase here!…

  • Listening to: Cobrastyle - Teddybears feat. Mad Cobra
  • Drinking: Black Coffee with Cinnamon
Having an absolute blast filling out my new sketchbook - one of the few times as an artist I've really embraced drawing the big guys. Hadn't realised I wasn't until I drew Thor yelling at Iron Man. Guess I avoided it for so long, originally thinking I wasn't good enough yet to even give it a shot, then it just became habit not to draw the big names/faces.
I love that I broke this habit I didn't even realise I had.
Well, I've a few in the sketchbook I'm cooking (Nightwing, David and Shaw from Prometheus, thinking of doing one with Spider-Man..). Its a great way to stretch between bouts of working on the BIG sci-fi graphic novel, Triorion. Trying to put a bow on that before June is out.
I'll be open for requests and commissions, too. So send me a message and we can figure it out!
Also, I'll be swimming the English Channel for charity at the end of July with my sister. Wish us luck!! Send me a message if you are interesting in donating!\
Been applying to a bunch of full-time art jobs - let's see if I hook one this time! My portfolio is always getting stronger!

Hey, This is Garrett Trujillo from Rocky Mountain Con. Funny, I searched your deviantart only to discover that I already had you on my watch list.

Oh you're on deviantart! :D You're so pro!
Essig-Peppard Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2012  Professional General Artist
Thanks! Well the goal is to make comics full time and draw these guys for the rest of my life. So I wish I were a bit more pro than I am, currently. Just doing my part to make sure these characters are in caring/capable hands.

You're very welcome! That's great, you're well on your way to making it there. (: I was working on doing that too, but then I started getting carpal tunnel really bad (and I'm only seventeen, I shouldn't be getting it). But keep up the great work and you'll only go uphill from here!
