ArtCon 2023 was Amazing!!

Recently I had the pleasure of attending ArtCon in Neosho, MO ! It was hosted by the Neosho Arts Council. This was an exciting event for me because it was my first comic book / fan convention and I had the best time!!

I got to meet a few different artists and trade prints. Several friends who were friends of mine made the trip to see me! I can’t wait to attend ArtCon next year and I hope to see you there!

Kobold Alchemist & Juvenile Mimic

Kobold Alchemist and Juvenile Mimic illustrated in Procreate App on 12.9 Ipad pro. I like the looseness of this sketch and the mimic mug was really fun to draw. I may do the mimic mug by itself later and make stickers or pins out of it. Really had fun with this one.

Enjoy the Process!

As artists what are good ways to overcome burn out and imposter syndrome? Part of what helps is realizing all creatives experience this. We all go through ebs and flows with our creativity and that is apart of the process. Also trusting in artistic processes, working on fundamentals, and taking in art outside your preferred medium helps a bit. Lift yourself up and realize your art is as much about the process of the making of art as the finished product. Take time and experience it rather than rushing to the end zone. There are hundreds of artists that make better work than me but none of it can take my creative experience away and the joy I feel when creating. That is the magic of making.
