Time for my favorite geeky art finds of the month!
Joey Quintin first caught my eye with his portrait of one of my favorite characters in Disney's Festival of Fantasy parade:
He even made her look like a Disney cartoon!
Here's a parade reference, so you can compare:
(You can see all my parade pics here, btw, if you missed them way back when.)
Joey's sketch cards are also soooo good, though:
Then he's got this fabulous Wicked/Harry Potter mashup:
(Hey, they ARE witches, right? Now I want this to be canon.)
Right now Joey is only selling buttons of his artwork in his online shop, but they're only $3, and the Harley one is pretty fab. Fingers crossed he adds prints soon, too! 'Til then, follow him on FB or Instagram for his appearance schedule.
Sara Olson won me over with her warrior Crystal Gems, "The Rose Knights":
Looks like Sara only sells at conventions, not online, but hit that link up there to check her appearance schedule.
Bryan Fyffe has vivid, gritty designs with a huge graphic punch:
AND ME LIKEY.
Most of Brian's prints are $30, except the butterflies which are $10. Head to his shop to see the rest!
My friend Charlie had this genius idea for sketchbook commissions: he draws small decorative frames - in all shapes and sizes - on the blank pages, then asks artists to pick a frame and fill it. He was showing me his book at MegaCon, and that's how I discovered Erica Feld's art:
Pretty sweet, right? Here's some more of her work:
Even better, her prints range from just $6-$10. Check out Erica's Etsy shop for more!
Sukesha Ray calls herself "the wizard of color" - and it's easy to see why:
This Discord & Fluttershy print stopped John and I in our tracks back at MegaCon.
You can buy Sukesha's art on full wrap-around shirts and pillows and stuff here (which looks freaking amazing - that Pinkie Pie sweatshirt! Ah!) or go see all of her work on DeviantArt. I think she only sells prints in person, though, so follow her on FB for her con schedule.
And last but not least, check out the gorgeous pencil-and-watercolor illustrations of Gillian Newland:
I know at least three people personally who are going to need this print. I bet you do, too. :D
And the one I had to scour Gillian's site and Facebook page to find, because I love it so much:
These prints look incredible in person, too, since the have a lovely matte texture. They start at just $12 in Gillian's online shop, but I recommend the larger 11X17 sizes for $22, if you can swing it, to really capture all that detail. (The struggle for wall space is real, my friends.)
