Crystal Mielcarek is creating unique and original contemporary artwork, comics and products

I'm a traditional artist and contemporary painter who identifies with lowbrow and pop surrealist movement. Much of my work touches on themes that combine beauty with the grotesque, from comic art to fine art and paintings. I have an unwavering desire to create. When I was seven years old I decided that being an artist was what my life was meant for.

Two years ago I decided to go head first and become a full time freelancer and convention artist.

Because I'm just starting out as freelance illustrator, my work is still not steady enough.  With my income it's hard to support myself on my art alone. If you appreciate what I'm working toward and would like to see me continue creating and making even more of it please consider becoming a patron! I appreciate each and every person who has been supporting me on this crazy journey the last two years and this is just another way to support my work.

These are some of the things that you have to look forward to should I receive the support I'd need:

  • Finally releasing my full tarot deck
  • Creating comic books and comic strips
  • Publishing digital sketchbooks and art books
  • Submitting works to larger contemporary art galleries across the country
  • Sharing videos and process work

Thank you all so much for taking the time to look at my work.

You are all amazing beautiful people
Crystal

Goals
80% complete
       
     A big project right now has been to do a completed black and white sketch every single day until the end of next October. That means I will have 365 days of sketches that I would really love to compile into a small art book.  It shows a great progression in my drawing skills already and i'm only just over day 100 as of this addition.  If I can manage $100 a month this will help me take some of the burden off the printing costs and will add another item I can use at conventions and sell online which will help me out a ton!  Thanks!!!
