2017 shennanerpants

Hello everyone! Sorry it’s been a few weeks, there’s been a lot of changes going on, most of them very good. I am working on my convention list for 2017, so that should be updated fairly soon here.😱

As of December, I am working full-time as a freelancer doing illustration & design work. I want to give a huge thank-you to all of the people who helped make this possible and everyone who has been either contracting me or commissioning me in the past. You helped sow the seeds that is helping to make my dream come true, and I don’t even have the words to properly express how much it means to me. ❤️💕 I am open for any jobs you would like me to do, and even if you’d just like to see my rates or schedule, I’d love to hear from you via my contact page!

As mentioned previously, Patreon will be coming soon. I wanted to make sure that before I put it up I had the rewards for the upper-tier subscribers ready. When the account goes public, I will post it on here and on my instagram account.

Lastly, in light of what is happening politically in the US at the moment; I would like to warn any new twitter followers that my account will be very political-post heavy for the foreseen future. I thought about removing the link entirely until it can go back to the normal art/photo based feed I was using it for, but I want to give people the chance to visit me or send me PMs in case that is easier contact for them. I also am weighing the pros/cons of self censorship, and realize that what I have to say at the moment is not different from the majority of what most people are already saying or thinking.

I hope everyone has a safe + happy beginning to 2017!

*edit 1.30.17* – My twitter is getting to be more political than artsy, so I’m removing it from the web-page until I can get back to a “more art than ranting” place.

Midwest Comicon LogoHello everyone! I just wanted to let you know since we’re finishing up the end of the year, Redmoon Studios will again have a booth for the MWCC in artists alley. I’m not entirely sure what table I have or where they want us quite yet, but when I get that I will put it up on here for y’all to grab. I hope to see some of you (and snag more pictures of awesome cosplays from guests!)

Thank You for a successful Mayhempalooza!

I want to thank everyone who came to visit us today at the 5th Annual Mayhempalooza in DSM. It was so nice to meet lots of new people (and old friends of Mayhem! ;D). I apologize that I wasn’t entirely lucid when it came to answering questions today as I stayed up late last night getting everything set up for the show and then woke up at crap-o’-clock this morning to help with tying up lose ends.

A special thanks to Katie, JT, and Mark II for all of the hard work they put into keeping all of the artists fed & happy. Also a special thanks to Dean Sturtevant for all of the fun times and help with getting advertising out!

Possible FCBD sketch-card commissions, Process Vimeo

This is a partial process video I made for one of my recent illustrations, and while I put a link to it on the image itself it doesn’t not really look like a link unless you click on it. Either way, good music + some timelapse stuff for j00!

As many people know from my linkedin page or by seeing me around town, I work onsite at Mayhem Comics from time to time. For this upcoming Free Comic Book Day (May 7th), there is a good chance I will be there to do sketchcards for people as I’ll be working at the store that day anyhow. I’ll try to keep this page updated as I hear more, and any final decisions will be on the Mayhem comic page before friday.

Welcome!

It’s been a little while since I have added anything onto the website’s front-page, but I have been updating the gallery as I finish new work. I’m kind of wondering if it was easier for people to see when updates were based on what this page said, but I haven’t heard anything as far as “are you still alive?” so I’m assuming everything is peachy-keen!

I am hoping to start having an RSS or updated page of any local art shows and conventions I’ll be attending. Since we’re just getting into the Spring season (and I am still getting acquainted with my new job!), I probably wont have any major outings planned until Summer/Fall 2016.

In the meantime, thank you again for visiting my page and I’d love to hear from you! 🙂

It’s only been a year or something, right?

Normally I’d like to think I’m pretty in control of my own website. Normally.  It took a hard lesson in coding a website from scratching using HTML5 + javascript back in 2011 before I realized I had let so much of my previous knowledge in writing websites get outdated that I really wasn’t up to the challenge on my own, especially since sites these days need to be mobile friendly. (and the div tag decided to be the controller for everything in the entire f–king universe.

I’m using a more automated page layout for this version of the website.
And you know what? I like it a lot better. It’s faster, it’s time saving, it slices, it dices, it makes julienne fries! I really should have done this a long time ago.

Thank you for visiting, and I think it’s going to be much easier to keep myself updated this way. Eventually there will be more things available on the Storefront as well as a page for Conventions & “upcoming events” if I am going to be part of a local show, but we’ll start here for now until I can get there.

Other sites I’ve made and have let fall into disarray:
Unofficial Blue Lantern Fanzine Project – A fanzine project I put together that gets printed and released whenever I have enough time/submissions.
Ex Gemmae Divus – My personal comic. Right now the site is taking a nap.
