Q. Are you available to hire for a project / a commission?A. I almost always have small illustration commissions open! Please check this page for details.
For projects, it depends. I currently can't work with strict deadlines or on anything too long-term, but it doesn't hurt to shoot me an email and ask.
Q. Do you do free work or requests?A. Nope.
Q. Can I use your art as an icon / blog graphic / etc?A. Yes, as long as you credit me somewhere that is easily visible like a description or credits page. However, I do not want art of my own characters used as ref pictures, rp icons, etc for other characters. If you like how I design OCs I have a character design fee on my commissions page.
Q. Can I repost your work?A. If it's on a site that I'm already on like Tumblr or Twitter just go find and reblog/retweet the original post. If it's on a website I'm not on, there is no reblog/retweet feature (like instagram), or if it's some sort of compliation post with different artists you can as long as you give explicit credit.
Q. Can I use the character design I commissioned or bought from you for a project?A. Yes! If you paid for it, it is yours. I would appreciate credit so if people like it they can find more of my work, but it's not necessary.
Q. What program do you use? Tablet? Brushes?A. Program is Photoshop CC. Tablet is a Wacom Intuos Pro. I currently mostly use Kyle T. Webster's brushes and some self customized default brushes. If you have a question about a specific brush/effect/font in one of my pieces just shoot me an email or dm and I can probably figure out what it is.
Q. Did you go to art school?A. Short answer: no.
Long answer: Via private, AP, and specialized art classes (like the Talented Arts Program in Louisiana) I recieved a good deal of studio art education. I was on track to enter art college out of high school, but was unable to continue due to chronic poor health.
Q. What is your chronic illness?A. I have a cocktail of conditions like Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, possible Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, severe Oral Allergy Syndrome, and some other things like repetitive injuries and mental illnesses. I am disabled and I use mobility aids like a cane and wheelchair. I also use smaller aids like breathing masks and joint braces.
I don't mind answering more in-depth questions about my health, but I would prefer they be emailed or DM'd to me.
