My main subject matter is cartoon animals. I've been fascinated with animal characters for as long as I can remember. Cute, charismatic and a bit mysterious, they appear in everything from ancient folklore to junk food advertisements. I'm interested in how animal characters can be used to portray the human experience, in ways both lighthearted and profound. In fact, my work tends to run the gamut from light to dark, and my target audience ranges from young children to adults.
My usual choice of media are pen & ink and gouache, watercolor or acrylic paints. Everything I do is completely hand-drawn and hand-painted, with minimal photoshop intervention. Nothing against computers, I just love the look & feel of paint on paper.
Here are some of the many things I look forward to sharing with my patrons:
- Paintings & illustrations
- Comics (fiction, autobiographical, surreal, strange or silly)
- Illustrated stories
- Coloring pages
- Hand-painted treasures (ornaments, pendants, etc.)
- Art activities and lessons for kids
- Greeting cards, postcards and the like
Supporting my Patreon campaign means empowering me to approach art as a part-time career as well as a full-time passion. Every little drop in the bucket makes a difference to me :)
