My Art and the Vaquitas
Pretty much everything but my vaquita art (because of the message) is currently in storage.
Visit www.nmmf.org/VaquitaCPR.html to learn about and help save the critically endangered vaquita porpoise.
There are less than 30 left alive.
Fellow artist good lookin' out: (JUSTICE!)
If you find an unauthorized copy of my artwork on display (or worse, for sale) please tell me!
I will be very super grateful.
If any of you artists on my little watchlist are having the same trouble, if you find your work stolen and want to know what you can do about it, feel free to ask me. I've been through it over a dozen times now. *sob*
BUT, anyway, I have a website where you can see my heavily watermarked art!
Ongoing project: artwork spotlighting endangered marine animals!

I HAZ A STICKERS
Q: WHY ALL THESE DOLPHINS!?
A: I have loved cetaceans since I was a tiny kid - they are my original muse. I will never forget going fishing with my grandfather, and being overwhelmed with awe while watching pacific bottlenose dolphins ride the bow wave of the boat.
Q: WHAT WIZARD TAUGHT YOU HOW TO DO THIS!?
A: I've been obsessively drawing since I was a toddler, and my style and techniques evolved organically. I'm totally self taught, never took any classes or had any instruction (aside from... finger painting in grade school) and I never will, because I feel that outside influence will alter and homogenize my natural style.
Q: MAN, WHAT IS UP WITH YOUR STYLE?!
A: I am a detail oriented illustrator, one who paints with itty bitty brushes, and most of all I am a creator. I freehand all my animals and I don't strive for realism or photo-perfect anatomy - I feel that too much referencing takes away from the artistic feel of my paintings. My art comes out looking the way I visualize things in my mind. (I AM AN UNTAMED ARTBEAST GRRAWWRRRAAhh )
Q: WHY IS YOUR DIGITAL ART SO WACK?
A: In digital art, I am a brand new baby beginner as of late 2014. I am teaching myself to use photoshop, from scratch, I have no idea what most of the buttons do.
(This is my work, and that's a wee bit of the story. I hope you likie! )
Faves, comments and critiques are much appreciated!
🎨Thank you for all the support for my artwork, guys! The purchases, the follows, the likes and comments - you have helped my dream take off and it means the world to me! (And special big thanks for the purchases, they = food! #artistlife🐬For a porpoise: Since 2015, I've donated half of my commission from my vaquita art stuff (lookie, the five towels on the bottom row) to vaquita conservation, this year VaquitaCPR. The poor vaquita is nearly extinct, with fewer than 30 left alive. Visit VaquitaCPR.org to learn more.
