Frequently Asked Questions

"Do you draw digitally? What programs do you use?"

Yep, I draw digitally. I first tend to do rough sketches on paper because it's easier for me to get ideas down quickly that way, and then I do almost all work entirely in Photoshop CC. I use the kyle webster brushes. 

"What tablet do you use? I'm new to art what do you recommend I use?"

Cintiq 22 HD, and rely on my cheap intuos4 when I travel. One costed nearly 2 thousand bucks and one costed $100. Both get the job done honestly. 

"Can you give me a portfolio review?"

If you ask nicely, and can come up with specific questions for me, sure. 

"Can you promo my kickstarter/book/webcomic/dog's IG?"

If I like it, yeah of course.

"Can you draw for my indie comic/kids book?"

Probably not.

"Do you do commissions at conventions?"

No. If you'd like something traditionally done that you'd like to pick up in person at a convention however, email me. We can maybe sort something out.

"Does drawing ever get easier?"

No. If it ever does I'll report back.
