Welcome to my art blog! Most of the stuff here I post are either projects I've done for school, or some doodles from my sketchbook.

My commissions are open~!
I'm sorry about your bike dude. I saw the post about it and decided to check out your art. I'm my gosh it's amazing. I would totally help you out but I literally jut spent all my money on Halloween decorations, but as soon as I have enough moola I'm totally going to help you get your bike back. I hope you are having a great day dearie. Farwell and thank you for your time.

Aw man, thank you so so much you are such a peach! ಥ‿ಥ

$5 sketch commissions, $8 lineart commissions, $12 flat color commissions!

Hey guys, so yesterday my bike got stolen out of my driveway… And I am really upset about it. Not only was it the best bike I’ve ever ever had, but it’s also the only way I can efficiently transport myself around Baltimore. Without it, getting from home to class or to work (and back home during lunch and dinner breaks) has proven to be extremely stressful and difficult for me.

If you can, I’d appreciate it if you’d reblog and signal boost this post from my main blog with details about my bike.

However, I’m not very hopeful about getting it back… It is Baltimore after all, and this kind of stuff happens all the time. I was just stupid about protecting it, so I lost it. But I still need a bike to travel around the city for groceries, getting to work, getting to campus, etc. So I’m doing cheap, cheap commissions!

Please send all commission requests to my email (as tumblr’s ask system sometimes loses messages), or if you can’t commission me, please signal boost this!

Vulnerability

A project I did for one of my finals fall semester of freshman year. It was never properly documented, and I just recently found it in my basement; so I figured now that my scanner’s working again, I should make sure I have a file of the work.

You can purchase a print of this piece in my INPRNT shop!

All the people I drew for this piece are cool artists who go to my school. Below are their names (from left to right) along with some links to their work! Y’all should check ‘em out.
