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. You can see more of my work, including sketches and WIPs, at my website or Tumblr, and my graphic novel (in progress) at :)

Hi everybody :) Still in the process of getting to the point where I can catch up on things here, so in the meantime, thanks for all comments and replies and notes (they'll be answered asap).

Here's a quick update as to what's been going on artistically:

By the end of the week, I should be posting an art trade that's nearly done (for :iconakili-amethyst: ), as well as Page 53 of "Tock the Gnome" rachelillustrates.deviantart.c… and some Mother's/Father's Day gifts that I haven't been able to edit for posting yet.

Progress there:

Colorwork, Sides of Akili by rachelillustrates   Tock the Gnome, page 52 by rachelillustrates

I have a handful of other commissions needing attention too, so once I'm done with Akili's I'll be continuing to work on those. Currently in progress: a book promo illustration for the amazing :iconwhimsysmile: and a character illustration for :iconversusme101:

Progress there: 

Commish lines - Armor Problems by rachelillustrates

(Whoops, didn't have a scan of Whimsy's piece progress yet...... here's my research for it, though… )

I also just started work on Page 54 of Tock last night, and after my recent trip to the NY Faerie Festival… I've been really inspired to work on a couple of the races of Tock's world that we won't get to see for a while, but whose history is really important as to how Tock's world is, now. I've also been working in little spurts on the WIP I posted for Midsummer, so I'm hoping to (slowly but surely) finish that up in full color (and probably soft colors, since I'm really inspired by how "Sailor Moon Crystal" looks. So awesome so far. Happy sigh).

WIP - See? (Tock the Gnome) by rachelillustrates

I think that's all for now, so hopefully I'll be sharing some more art with you in a few days! Thanks, always, for watching my work and I hope everyone's doing wonderfully :love:
