My Bio
I draw, paint and sometimes mess with photography, sculpture and ceramics.

Bachelors of Fine Art (Concentration in Painting), 2003, University of West Georgia

In reference to why I carry a sketchbook everywhere:
You have to be ready to capture those ideas when they decide to come out and show themselves (usually unannounced). Otherwise, they float away and could be gone forever lost in memory.

Do you still work in encaustic by chance?

When time allows. Very little lately. I taught a one day workshop this past August and it rekindled my interest in the medium.

That's good to hear. I just started working in the medium, and it's taken my heart by storm.
Do you just hand-draw your characters in with pigment sticks? Or do you paint by layers?
SethFittsProfessional Traditional Artist
My apologies for the delayed response. 
I employ several techniques when working in encaustic. One of my favorite techniques is laying paper on the electric griddle I use and coat the paper in beeswax. I then draw in the paper with Prismacolor pencils and sometimes a wax crayon (Crayola or other brand). Sometimes I draw on the paper before I set it on the griddle. 
When working “hot to cold”, I do build up layers.
