My Bio

About me

I started drawing at the age of 3. Since that time I have drawn in my spare time and that is the main reason why I turned this into my career. I have been self employed since 2004. Most people think I am a fan artist but I rather think of it as a great inspiration to draw Original Characters. The most inspirational are books, (fan)fiction and games. I also like to illustrate new projects or characters.

I always draw what inspires me. Inspiration is depth! Drawing is kind of a need. A way to relax. And an expression of the soul.


2024: Recently I work on a queer romance story about love, trust and self-acceptance set in a lush fantasy world.


"An artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures."

(Henry Ward Beecher)


"Without atmosphere a painting is nothing."

(Rembrandt)

Do you take requests, art-trades, or commission?


I'm flattered by the interest, but no I do NOT. On this gallery I post personal and professional works. Fanart is mostly personal, the other artworks are rather professional in nature.

I DO take professional level commissions depending on my availability. Please reach me at art[at]kejablank[dot]net and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.


(By professional, I mean work for companies and projects moreso than fun paintings for individuals. Sorry for the unavailibity on the latter)


Can I use your work/ one of your existing character designs?


Sorry, no. I'm extremely rigid about the use of my personal work outside of creating icons. I appreciate people sharing my work with accreditation, but please do not edit my stuff or use it as a base for your own work etc.

Hi there, in a few week starts the 21. international Comic Salon in Erlangen/Germany and I am very glad to go there for the second time. I and my author Liran will present a first impression of this world at the Comic Salon. Immerse yourself in sketches, artworks and cosplay, as well as see a short moving excerpt of the work at the Comic Seminar exhibition. Maybe some of you guys are around to visit us? Meet us from 29. May.-02.June 24 in Erlangen Exhibition Hall B! I am soooo excited. Cheers, Keja

Hey guys out there, I am still here, but working on a comic project. Hope to show you more soon. I am currently posting most of the intermediate results on Instagram. This is an invitation to follow me on instagram @kejablank, too. If someone is i interested in commissions, I just do business requests and professional commissions. I also would like to do character designs for pen and paper or the like. Please write me to art [at]kejablank.net for serious requests with asking price. Thanx. Stay tuned. Keja

I like your Pictures and what they convey. what I don't like, is that it is AI and not something drawn from scratch. i think real Art comes from inside. So many AI artists O cannot see the artists character behind, because it is not the "handwriting" or the imprint I see in these artworks. Its a collective artisian work. So would like to see what you can create without a machine behind. hope you understand my point.

Thanks for faving, KejaBlank!

Thanks

Thanks for the fave!

Your art is just wonderful. I love the feeling of movement and expressions in the pictures, and I have always enjoyed immensely when a drawing gives you a feeling or tells a tale, and that's just what your art does. Very, very nice! 💙

Your drawing of Kakashi are incredible!! The amount of detail you put into each one really stands out, I love the ones that you include his father in too - not many people bother to include him unfortunately. Thank you for all your effort and sharing your masterpieces❤

Hello, are you still doing MANGA commissions? I am looking to update a small freelance team in case I get extra gigs for someone to handle. 🤔

Sorry for the late reply. Regretfully I don't draw manga commissions recently.
