My art background:
I have zero art training/education. My graduate degrees are in business management and biological sciences, so on paper I really have no business at all mucking around with art. Actually, part of me still resists being called an artist because it felt like such a fraudulent thing to say lol.
My art style:I don’t think I have an established style per se, but you can probably recognize my art by all the little drawing quirks I have XD. And you can tell from the little decision tree above, if I think the humour can stand on its own then I pretty much play fast and loose with the art lol. There are times, however, if I think a particular style is needed to better convey my point then I’d try to put more effort into it.
My art process: Oh goodness if I have any sense of shame my face would be red right now. I do most of my sketches on the back of scrap papers and, I shit you not, I do digital paintings with my mouse (it’s a miracle that I don’t have carpal tunnel yet). That said, colouring is my absolute favourite step. I usually do my sketches with 4H pencils and line with Staedtler pigment liner, the rest is all Photoshop.
