Mi gente! Just had to do a #fanart mock up cover for a character after my own heart, the #afrolatina hero @laborinquenacomics

This was a fun one, cant wait for the day I’d get to do this sort of thing for more than just fan art.

Thanks for looking!

Hey Mi Gente!

Here’s our girl, Franqui! It’s been a long time since I got to sit and draw my creator owned toon so to say I was happy to do this is an understatement. Wanted to do a nice little portrait that also shows part of her heritage [She’s Puerto Rican, mostly. She has a ...[ Read More ]

Hi Brett! Firsts things first, I love your artwork and I admire how you use shapes to bring personality and life to your characters. I wanted to ask you, how can i train my self to draw with no reference other than my mind? I copy a lot of artists I admire, but when it comes down to create my own stuff, i struggle a lot. Thanks and Cheers!

Hey thanks. Since you started out primarily copying you’ve strengthened that side of you probably too much (like an upper body workout but ignored the legs) I think the best methodology you could try is to use a method called look, draw. Do this for both times you want to copy another artists work ...[ Read More ]

So aside from commission work, Street Fighter V consumes my life. Haha. Soon it will be Overwatch and SFV so keep a eye out for some fan art of Overwatch too!

If you’re interested in Commissions please don’t hesitate to get a hold of me!

Thanks for looking!

Y’all know I have a plentiful amount of respect for Jake Parker and he is one of the most useful instructor/motivational speakers in the art community today. I can’t help but share the videos that strike a cord so here is- In the words of a wise man, “Another one.”

On the surface, it looks very convincing.  The biggest clue that this is a scam is the email, which links to a .de address. (The only official Patreon messages you receive will be from “bingo  AT patreon.com”)

 Please spread the word so nobody falls for this!

how do you repair your reputation if it gets damaged? i’m almost pro level, then a personal emergency caused me to botch multiple deadlines and not produce much work for about a year. i’m nervous people think i’m unreliable and un-hireable. my current clients probably don’t trust me anymore, and new clients comment on the lack of new work in my portfolio. explaining my situation as an excuse seems unprofessional and tmi. but how do i redeem myself and convince clients i am not a flake?

One of my mentors tells me that while narrative is wonderful for illustration, it can paralyze you if you start to add dreamed-up narratives around your real life. He’s right, too.  As difficult as it is, don’t let yourself catastrophize. You don’t know what other people think, so don’t let your inner dark mirror make ...[ Read More ]
