Last night, Caleb Johnson of American Idol fame did a little performance in Hollywood for some of his fans. I was lucky enough to be able to attend, so I did this piece of art for him! <3 He liked it! His voice is lovely and he’s such a nice person; I can’t wait to give his album a listen! 
I know I don’t really have to say it since I live near LA currently, but come back so I can see you on tour, Caleb! Haha.

A couple of my friends and I get together weekly to discuss our art over dinner. For funsies, we started doing prompts. July&#8217;s was &#8220;Coolest. Shop. Ever!&#8221; I thought of going in a few different directions, but in the end, I&#8217;m highly predictable, haha. TREEHOUSE BOOKSTORE! With cozy little reading nooks nested in the trunk. :D
Practicing layout for this was fun! It was nice to take something like this from the concept phase all the way to finish.

Shaking off my Flash cobwebs. Here&#8217;s a Maddie turnaround! I had debated on whether or not I was gonna do one of these, and ultimately I decided it&#8217;d be a good idea.

Some friends and I get together weekly for art meetings, and this month our drawing prompt is &#8220;coolest. shop. ever.&#8221; I love music and also early 20th century art and architecture, so I thought I&#8217;d design some old radios as ideas for fun stuff to include!

Couple of shot compositions from my storyboard project Adrift I had been working on in June. I applied to a few studios and received a few tests, so understandably this got put on the back burner. Really wanna get back to it! c:

dragonsmirk was kind enough to commission a picture from me of her WoW character Guchulag and his pet sprite darter, Flick. This was a super fun commission, and she was an absolute peach to work with! Thanks again! &lt;3

Wanted to make an icon of my animagus wearing a Nidoqueen hoodie, since Nidoqueen is essentially my spirit Pokemon. Showin off two sides of the personality at once! I tried something a little different with my inking and rendering style this time around and loved it; totally going to do more of this!
I&#8217;d like to take icon commissions for more of these from folks. They&#8217;re fun!

I wanted to experiment with trying to create an icon of my animagus wearing a floral crown made of heather, since that&#8217;s my name&#8230; UHH kinda iffy on how it went lol, damn heather being such a teeny tiny flower! But it was fun nonetheless.

BUSY AS HECK lately, but I did have time to do a bit of art for one of my best friends&#8217; birthdays! My friend Kenny has an idealized fighting-game version of himself, so I just had to draw it. :P It kinda unintentionally came out looking like a t-shirt design, haha.
