A few updates...

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 23, 2014, 5:57 PM
Howdy gang! :iconcutewaveplz:

A few general announcements as they're long overdue...

- I will be the Artist Guest Of Honor at ApolloCon in on June 19-21, 2015 in Houston, TX: . Nothing definite on the programming yet, but there's bound to be lots of fun and art happening, so if you're in the neighborhood, come say hello! :)

- My two new 2015 calendars, "Artisans" and "Sketches" are now available for purchase in the DeviantArt store:…

- By popular demand, some of my sketches are also now available for sale as prints directly from my website:…

- People have e-mailed and messaged me asking where they can find my End Of Infinity book. The bad news is, you can't. Not at the moment. Long story short, I put my trust in someone, and they screwed up. I'd rather bury the project than put out a crappy product. But, the good news is, I'm not burying it, I'm revising it. So, I'm hoping for a new (and much improved) release some time next year. I'll announce it here as well on my site when it's available.

- I'm also working on another art book, which I'm planning to release before the New Year. Also to be announced.

Before I go, thank you so much to everyone who's favored my work, commented, and added me to their watch list. I haven't been as active on here lately and online in general, for various reasons I'd rather not get into, but I always appreciate it. And of course, thank you so much to all my watchers and friends for supporting and inspiring me!

Hi there, and welcome to my gallery! I'm a self-taught artist/illustrator, and I've been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. I've been doing art professionally for about 12 years.

Many things have inspired and influenced my work, from the Far East to the Pre-Raphaelites to post-apocalyptic and steampunk fiction. I love to blend fantastic and real life elements. My work is mostly traditional, but I also do some digital art here and there. I'm a creativity junkie and can't live without making things and experimenting.

I believe we creative people are never truly complete, and continue learning and discovering ourselves for as long as we live. It's like a pilgrimage to our muses, and I'm enjoying mine for all it's worth, cracks in the road and all. I don't really care about pushing the envelope or being a visionary, I just like to paint pretty things that I hope will bring people joy.

I live in Brooklyn, NY with my husband, our two young sons, two trusty feline sidekicks, and more books and movies than we have room for. When I'm not appeasing that finicky, fickle art muse, I hang out with my family, write novels I hope to someday publish, dabble in photography, and play a delicious profusion of violent videogames.

Thanks for looking, and alons-y!

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Heart :happybounce: 
Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!<3
