Many of my original pieces end up as prints or on other products, including magnets, shirts, and stationary. One of the the things I love about what I do is to make art more accessible, so I do my best to make sure that the things I produce hit a range of affordability. Prints I take my print quality seriously, and all of my Giclee prints are made using archival paper and canon dye-based inks that are tested to last centuries as long as they are cared for well. Some…

As much as I love working in traditional media, there is also something fun and amazing about painting and working digitally. It requires less preparation and clean-up, less in material costs, it is often faster (at least compared to the excruciating dry time of oil painting!) and you can achieve amazing results. It is also perfect for combining with traditional skills. All of my comic work, though inked by hand, is cleaned up and colored using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. I choose what methods I use based on the needs…

Over the years, I have discovered a need as an artist to create original pieces of art. With over a decade of traditional media training, but an essentially geeky personality, I have been working on combining my enjoyment of nerd culture with my love for the traditional art process. The original work that I produce is the strange but adorable love-child of these two obsessions.

Figure Drawing Funness 2
Posted By :Date :Laura | 05-08-2015
Draw­ings from my last fig­ure draw­ing ses­sion — Again, a great model with a great figure and sense of expression. As usual, we started out with fast poses for ges­ture draw­ing, and then the last hour and a half we had just one pose. I decided to do a portrait for the last session, but I feel like the final piece is too unfinished, and I didn't take quite enough time in the measuring stages. I wish I'd had another couple of hours with her, she had such beautiful structure…

River Road Expo Spring, 2015
Posted By :Date :Laura | 05-03-2015
I had so much fun at River Road Expo, again! I spent most of the time talking with people, selling prints, and checking out the awesome steampunk and adorable superhero costumes. My most popular print (once again) was my little girl mechanic, followed closely by my new Odile print and my clockwork bird. I also took my first at-show commission for Comics for Collectors and knocked out a drawing of Spider-Gwen, which was only half as stressful as I had imagined!

Figure Drawing Funness
Posted By :Date :Laura | 04-15-2015
Here are some drawings from the last figure drawing session - our model this time was awesome, classically trained dancers almost always make great models, they have such control over their poses and can convey a great deal of emotion just in the way they arrange themselves. We started out with fast poses for gesture drawing, and then the last hour and a half we had just one pose. Some time I will have to get a modelling session for a 4-6 hour pose, those are my favorites!   [gallery…

Digital Sketch Fun
Posted By :Date :Laura | 03-27-2015
I played around with some Photoshop sketching today, and it didn't turn out too bad! I'm still trying to get used to drawing directly into programs, rather than having to start in my sketchbook, (not that I would ever neglect my sketchbook for brainstorming, but I want to see if drawing into the programs directly will save me any time) so I decided I needed to start with drawing something that I'm already pretty used to drawing, so adorable little girl it was! I am also trying to speed up…
