|What art means to me|
The art and ramblings of a disillusioned idealist.
I'm a digital artist, graphic novelist, and UC Berkeley grad with a focus on environmentalism and cyber activism.
I've illustrated and authored numerous graphic novels and plushed a few books. I'm currently working on the Axent Wear cat ear headphones that I designed.
When I'm not drawing away or dealing with the unpleasant business side of running a headphones company, I enjoy sculpting, hiking, and experimenting with aquaponics.
I watched Blue Planet 2 a while back and have been itching to paint the enchanted kelp forest. One of these days I hope I can snorkel through it
Besides practicing environments with Photoshop brushes, I also wanted to expand beyond human busts to more of the whole body. So here’s some more tests.
Truth be told when I hurt my hand years ago I stopped drawing as much and I felt like my skills went down a lot. Now that I’ve been doing physical therapy exercises and can afford to draw more, I’m really excited to practice lots and get my skill level back up
This is the last part of the 2nd Chapter (which is confusingly named chapter 1 lol)! Thank you all for staying with my story for so long even after the 3 year hiatus. I'm excited have finished this chapter after so many years, and excited to begin Chapter 2, titled "Mutable". The next chapter will focus on Vance and his development (and more trolling by Frey of course). Stay tuned!
Special thanks to my amazing team of 3D artists who helped me get back into comic making after hurting my hand. My comics wouldn't be possible without them!
