Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted.  I try to only post meaningful updates and this one is worth it.

My friend Wylie Beckert has a kickstarter (link) that’s wrapping up in a few days.  She achieved her goal of 18,ooo USD in only 9 hours!  Her project is a deck of playing cards that she’s been illustrating for the past year or so and it looks amazing.  It’s dark, whimsical, and just beautiful.

I want to share her project because she has been so helpful to me over the past year and a half as I left my full-time job as an industrial designer to pursue illustration.  Wylie has been ever helpful with business advice, contacts, she’s shared my work with her own fans, and has just been a great friend to hang with and bullshit about illustration and all the headaches, friends, and victories that come along with pursuing what you love :)

Please check out her work and kickstarter, it’s all beautiful - wylielise | kickstarter

P.S. - I’m still working on personal work.  The J.Kobb is a big one.  It’s twice as large as I normally work and I get about an hour or two in each night after my main line of work.  Thanks so much for hanging in there and keeping up with my stuffs!

Best

Amazing work! Are most of the digital ones done as pencils first and then scanned in? How long does it take you to finish a piece?

i think the majority of what i have posted start off as graphite.  i then scan them and paint them.  as far as timing for each piece... it's a little different for each one.  if i had a gun to my head, i think i could pull one of the more detailed pieces off in a week - week-and-a-half.  in general, these little pieces that i scan and then color take about 3 weeks of working after work to get it to a place where i like it.  i'm getting faster, though.  having a full-time job does take up most of my time... like everyone else on the planet :)  so, i have to fight for my time to work on the the art i love to make.  each piece does get faster, though.  merely going through the steps of the process makes it all run faster and more smoothly.  ideas come more quickly and the execution happens more quickly each time.

thanks for asking.  and, i'm glad you like the work :D

Oh man. 3 weeks for even the little ones?!! What patience! What keeps you motivated through all the rote rendering work?

the sense of satisfaction from seeing a piece through to the end plays a huge role in motivation.  and from one angle, if you've established a satisfying technique and a sufficient process, then merely sticking it out and seeing it through will yield satisfying results.  it seems to have been the case for me.  i'm finally getting down a process that i enjoy and helps get the image i see in my head, onto the paper/canvas/screen/into other peoples' heads.  it's exciting to see what other things are possible to unlock from one's imagination :)

also, i like to have something that i've created to share with others.  knowing that others will get enjoyment and engagement from something you made with your own hands [relatively speaking] sustains the motivation, as well.

great question!
