If you haven't seen one of my last IG stories, then you may not know that the Kickstarter for my Children's book has been successfully funded!! THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO LIKED, SHARED, AND SUPPORTED THE CAMPAIGN!!! As a thank you, everyone who pledged and any new backer now until it ends, will receive this additional 8x10 illustration with their order. This is a painting I started working on immediately after the goal was met because I knew I wanted to thank all the pledgers somehow. So I went with a campfire scene with Peet celebrating with all his pals of his book release :) Check the link in my bio to visit the kickstarter before it ends in 72 hours!!!!! #illustration #childrensbookillustration #childrensbooks #characterdesign #art #digitalart #painting #draw #drawing #kidslitart #kickstarter #selfpublishing #bigfoot #forest #animals #campfire #kidart #artistoninstagram #thankyou #blessed #illustrator

Hey Everyone! Hope you're all having a great week. I have a quick update on my Kickstarter campaign. I originally had the launch date set as Sept 1st, but I realized that launching on Labor Day weekend may be a bad idea since many people are out enjoying the holiday and are away from their computers and phones. The first 48 hours of a Kickstarter can make or break the whole project, so I want to play it safe. I also need to get my page reviewed by the Kickstarter team, which can take up to 3 business days. So unfortunately I will have to postpone the launch to next week. I'll be posting another update regarding the official launch date as soon as I have everything finalized and ready to go. Thanks again for all the support, all the likes, and loving comments- you guys inspire me to keep moving forward even times are tough! Here is another illustration preview from the book that I wanted to share. Peet isn't the only character in the story! #illustration #childrensbookillustration #kidslitart #art #artist #drawing #draw #digitalart #digitalpainting #kickstarter #selfpublishing #bigfoot #animals #friends #characterdesign

Hey everyone! It's been a minute, but I swear I'm alive and still making art. The reason for my absence has been the result of being heads down working on completing my first self published book, which i'm so happy to say is finally done! The next step to bring this guy to life is to hash out the details for its Kickstarter campaign which will launch September 1st (tentative date). So stay tuned, I will release official info regarding the campaign soon. In the meantime here is a little teaser image of my main character, Peet! Thanks for taking a look and your continued support ❤πŸ“šπŸ–Œ #childrensbooks #childrensbookillustration #kidslitart #illustration #characterdesign #art #draw #drawing #painting #story #storytelling #artist #bigfoot #forest #illustrate #digitalart #instaartist #kickstarter #illustratoroninstagram #selfpublishing #author

Here is another painting I made from my Kauai trip. (Specific location was at the Kauai Coffee Company) This one took a little over an hour. I tried my best to keep that impressionistic feel.

My very good friend Jhierl asked me to draw him a young version of a Deviljho from Monsterhunter world on my Patreon page. Apparently the adult version of this monster in the video game is quite the beast so it was fun turning it into a large eyed, drooling, sweetheart.

As a special thanks for my Patreon subscribers, i’ll be doing requested illustrations for the next several weeks instead of the regularly scheduled polls. One of my patrons requested any Westworld character, so I went with Maeve :) So excited for the upcoming new season for this show! If you’d like me to illustrate a character for you, i’ll be doing special requests for my first 30 subscribers!
