My artistic mission is telling stories, both my own and others', through my art. I work mainly in ink, gouache, acrylics, collage, and digital mediums.
I also use my art as a means of activism, doing commissions for community members in order to raise money for the Black Lives Matter movement. Over the course of the quarantine, I raised over $1000 for various bail funds, organizations, and individuals.
"The rest of the day was quite easy.
I did all the jobs on my list
And enjoyed them and had some time over.
I love you. I’m glad I exist."
I use my Youtube channel as a continuation of my artistic endeavors, posting animations and time lapse videos of my art. Though I am relatively inactive on my channel, I've amassed about 23,000 views across my three public videos. Developing my Youtube channel is a long term goal of mine, as I hope to create more process videos and storyboards in the future.
I started learning guitar in November of 2019, as I wanted a hobby that was purely for my enjoyment. Playing guitar, bass, and singing has become one of my favorite pass times, and I've begun integrating covers of my favorite songs into my Youtube channel.
I created an art Instagram account in 2015, hoping to build a following and archive my artistic development. Over the last five years, my Instagram has become both an ever-changing portfolio of my creative projects and a small business. I accept commissions through Instagram, drawing family portraits, original characters, pets, friend groups, and more. As of recently, I've switched gears to accept only donations in exchange for art, raising money for the BLM movement.
After creating my Instagram page, I decided to raise some money by selling products online through the site Redbubble. I specialize in niche pop-culture designs, and have sold over 1,000 products to people across the world. If you ever happen to meet someone from New Zealand who owns a Ron Swanson pillow case, that's me!
