I had my first art show at a local gallery this past Friday night, which was pretty fun. The ones I've done in the past have either been at my school or other places, so actually being in an art gallery for once was very nice. I displayed some of my artwork alongside my good friend ~festherius
. My thanks goes out to her uncle for offering me the place! I only made about $30 from a few prints, but there were lots of people interested in my work and it was great getting to hang out with my friend and family members.
Also on Friday I got the results back from a state contest to which we submitted several things from our yearbook. I won second place in all four graphic design categories I entered! I'm quite happy. I got certificates for each one. Our photographers did really well too; one of them won a couple of All-State awards. I look forward to seeing how the whole book does after the competitions this summer; we just finished it and sent the final pages off to the publisher this past week. I'm very satisfied with it after all the hard work, and it's a tremendous weight off of my shoulders to be done with it. I can't wait to see the whole thing in print.
On another note, a few weeks ago I took part in a community arts festival. I received recognition as a "Distinguished Honoree in the Fine Arts (Graphic Design)" from the local Arts Council. It was quite an honor, and I was very humbled. I met someone at the festival who was really interested in my work and asked for a couple different commissions, and got me in contact with a couple people who have galleries in different places.
I'm really excited to be getting so involved in the art world, especially since I'm about to go off to college and start my own life. I look forward to where life takes me!
God bless, everyone! Hawk out.
I'm open to commissions now. I will only do them for real money, not points. I can be paid through PayPal. The prices depend on the complexity of the piece and how much time I put into it. I'll do my best to be reasonable, and if you think something is unfair, do please inquire about it.
$5-15 for sketches and lineart.
$20-35 for a fully shaded or colored character.
$40-70 for a full page piece or mixed media artwork.
I can do just about any sort of anthro, Medieval or fantasy character, some feral animals, and drawings from photos. If you're interested just send me a note!
