Activity


I'm offering an opportunity for one (or possibly more) of my watchers to have me create a piece of artwork for them. I will pretty much draw or paint anything, but even I have limits to what I'm willing to create.

If you're interested... all you have to do is be one of my watchers and leave me a comment on this journal entry.

Feel free to include what you would like me to create in the comment (or leave a comment and send me a note if you don't want to say what you want publicly). What you indicate that you want me to create won't be a factor of who wins.

On December 31, 2018, I'll randomly select the winner(s) from those who have expressed interest.

I finally hit 100 watchers!

As a surprise gift to the person giving me the 100th watch, I offered to paint or draw anything. The very lucky winner was… {really?}
WeakendSketches {again}!
Since she also just won a surprise for giving me my 500th llama, I told her she should play the lottery. :laughing:
Anyway, she asked: “Would you be cool with like, painting a whale with wings flying in the sky?”

Soaring whales – painted for WeakendSketches

I finally hit 500 llamas!

As a surprise gift to the person giving me this llama, I decided out of the blue, to offer to paint or draw anything. The lucky winner was… WeakendSketches!
She asked: “I love the paintings you've done with the fairies. Could you do another fairy with pretty rainbow colors?”

PhilDiehl's Profile Picture

Phillipp Diehl
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
I was born and raised in Washington state where my personality and artwork have been strongly influenced by the region’s flora, fauna, weather, technology, coffee and people. I briefly studied design and production art at Phoenix Institute of Technology, where I spent a lot of money but didn’t learn much; however, this provided the perfect venue for me to hone my artistic skills and techniques. I still enjoys trying new artistic techniques and media, just to keep me on the edge.

Although I have visited, explored, and travelled through nearly all the states and providences in North America, I have only resided in a few states, including: Washington, Oregon, Connecticut, and Arizona. For a time, I made a living creating artwork, but during this period I learned that I really only enjoyed creating artwork as a hobby, instead of relying on producing what other people wanted in order to pay the bills.

The purpose of artwork, in my eyes, is to pick pieces of reality and imagination out the artist’s mind to put them into focus in such a way as to have one look a bit longer than usual in order to let it reach the consciousness, which is where everybody then makes something different out of it. I hopes that others will admire these pieces of my reality and imagination with the result of it inspiring them to expand their horizons, try something new, do something crazy, and continue to improve themselves.

Hope I'm not too late to drop by and say thanks very much for the Watch and Llama. :) And for that matter, thanks for giving me the opportunity to discover you and your work. Not only am I loving the balance between Traditional and Degital mediums in your collection, but just the sheer creativity and overall exectution. Those 'Edge of the World' pieces in particular are stellar.
Have any Fantasy Book publishers sought you out to design the covers? I think they should. :D
