I'm a fantasy/comic artist/illustrator currently working freelance out of central New York state. When I'm not drawing, I tend to watch a lot of sci-fi/fantasy-related shows and movies, listen to folk music, and read lots of comics, among other geeky things.

To support my work, please check out my Patreon… :)


Book launch shoutout!

Hey everyone, new art will be happening - including commission updates to those waiting for them ^^; - once I get something figured out about my internet-less computer, BUT FOR NOW, big cool thing about a good friend of mine:

Book LaunchThat's right! I've finally done it! I'm going to be a published author.  As of Sunday, February 1, 2015 my book "The Zoey Jane Files: Into Darkness" will be available on all ebook platforms. After having been shot down by publishing companies and literary agencies alike for the last year, I've decided to stop turning my nose up at a very real, legitimate and rapid-growing medium. I actually came across Smashwords while searching for information on grants available to writers. It is completely free to publish through them The book is immediately available to all ereader formats. The profits off the sales are incredibly high. They offer an astounding variety of free marketing tools and recommend dozens more. They have a step-by-step guide for publishing. And their site is nearly idiot-proof.
One of the options offered by the site is to embed a youtube video "preview" of the book. I will be taking full advantage of this option. As a result, I'm looking for questions from you, my fans

My dear friend :iconwhimsysmile: is launching her very first novel, "The Zoey Jane Files: Into Darkness," on the first of next month!!!

More promotion coming soon when I have the piece I'm doing for her done :aww: But for now, please check it out. Especially if action packed awesome badass lady spy romance is up your alley!

Happy Tuesday, everyone, good luck with your day!
Definitely not satisfied with how much art time I got today, BUT I did get the pencils for page 58 of "Tock the Gnome" nearly done, and was given an important part of the puzzle for a ways down the line, too, that I hadn't been addressing. So trying to focus on those two positive things :)
Woke up earlier than expected this New Year's morning, so I started 2015 with "Tock the Gnome" time:

Hope everyone had a fun, safe time last night. 
Spent time earlier working on commissions, finishing up the night with some floofy Tock illustration :)
