Wendi Chen is creating illustrations, art tutorials, and brushes

Hi everyone! My name is Wendi Chen, and I'm a Chinese-American illustrator based in Seattle. Welcome to my Patreon!



Currently, I sell my work at art shows and comic conventions across the country, while managing my own Daystall at the historic Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle. Previously, I worked as a 2D Game ArtistPhotographer, and as a Graphic Designer at Pokémon USA.

I am entirely self-taught at digital art, and I even have a never-used science degree from the University of Michigan, where I was originally studying to be a Pharmacist. Fortunately, circumstances led me to pursue art (my life passion) and I never looked back. I believe that there has never been a better time to be a creative professional; the resources are endless if you know where to look!

I love sharing my resources, tools, and hard-earned/expensive lessons with my peers. I believe competition is counterproductive to the artistic spirit and that we need to lift each other up as much as possible!

By supporting me on Patreon, you can take pride in knowing that you're helping a small business owner, and you'll also receive the following:

  • Original artwork signed and mailed to you! ($15 tier and up)
  • Exclusive raw sketchbook pages and doodles
  • Custom brush sets and working PSDs for download 
  • Detailed step-by-step process tutorials for Photoshop and Procreate
  • A behind-the-scenes look at prepping for Artist Alley / Conventions
  • Candid and practical financial/tax advice for freelance creatives

Thank you for your support,
Wendi
