A very happy birthday to my friend @abigail_larson

I hope you like your present. It can be a bit of a devil at times and likes to eat small critters, but I have no doubt you’ll both get along just fine. You also might want to keep it away from sunlight…

Gah! I just can’t! I love it so much, thank you, Austin!

1 character, 19 drawing styles challenge! This took a long time, but I’m pretty happy with it - I recommend looking at all these artists’ original work if you like any of them.

Love this! And I’m really flattered to see my style represented so nicely!

evildrmady asked: I'm just wondering.. have you ever done any work based on The Phantom of the Opera?

Working on it!

luckiebreak asked: hi there!! i'm an artist studying graphic design. even though i love my major, my courses lately haven't allowed me to do much drawing, which is my main passion. it was only about a month ago that i realized i need to shift my focus to back to illustration if i really want to be happy with my work. however, now i feel a little behind on building my portfolio. this makes me pretty nervous about getting jobs once i graduate. any advice on how to get commissions when you're just starting out?

Hi doll!

These are good concerns to have, even if it feels stressful trying to decide what to do. I always encourage people to do what they’re passionate about, but in this industry, jobs are so competitive, and the trends dictate who gets hired.

If you have a distinct style, make that work for you, and go after employers who hire artists like you. Bring something fresh to the table, while still being relevant to their needs.

I can’t recommend you jump right into freelancing out of school unless you’re already getting lots of work. Building your illustration career takes quite a long time. Many illustrators start by working in the after-hours or part time to build their brand while having a steady day-job.

To build up your brand, start out by taking small illustration jobs, join group gallery shows, and enter contests. That’ll get you noticed by editors, art directors, and other companies.

Good luck!
