I launched a patreon!

I launched a patreon!

Hey guys! Just a heads up to let you guys know that I finally launched a Patreon page! You can find it here: https://www.patreon.com/loish In the last ten years of being a freelancer, I’ve found more and more of my personal time swallowed up by work and obligations. This year, I’m finally taking the step to change things. I’ve decided to make the time to paint freely, explore new things, sketch mindlessly, and let my creative mind wander. By supporting me on Patreon, you can help me to priortize my own artistic growth this year. As a patron, you’ll get a glimpse behind the scenes: WIPs, process shots, and a once monthly sketchbook tour video! So please consider supporting me there if you like seeing my work and want some extra behind-the-scenes stuff. P.S - I have no idea how this site works anymore! I'm so bummed that others can see my art on a dark layout, I feel like that's a terrible fit for my work haha. Has anyone figured this eclipse stuff out yet??

Rest in peace, Odile

Rest in peace, Odile

This week has brought some tragic and shocking news. Odile van der Stap, otherwise known as Jumei (https://www.deviantart.com/jumei), is sadly no longer with us. She passed away last Saturday. I will not share the details of how or why. I believe this is the task of her close loved ones and family, who are still in a process of grieving their loss. I know that a lot of people appreciated her beautiful art, and that she has a lot of followers here on DeviantArt - people who loved her work but also who talked with her and even made friends with her here. This was how I met her. I was an admirer of her work, and we started talking to each other through notes, and eventually
