FamilyTree by thelearningcurv
The person who commissioned me to do this wanted their family tree done with the favorite character of the person representing them to be their avatar. They also wanted it done all by hand and in color. Here is the final result done with Prismacolor markers. Email me at if you'd like a custom piece of art! 
Have you found "A Reason to Smile!"? Head to to read a preview of my first self published book!!! =]
Best Friends Forever! by thelearningcurv
Best Friends Forever!
When I started doing mashups, I immediately caught the connection between the Power Puff Girls and the female DC Universe powerhouses. I was reminded of this when the DC Nation, Saturday morning cartoons became popular and saw the Super Best Friends Forever animated shorts. I wish they were still going on because there is a great deal of stories and fun to be had... oh well, I'll just have all the fun myself=] 
Batvillains by thelearningcurv
I'm still catching up on my submissions here, but if you're not following me on instagram you need to! I spend a lot of time on Instagram now, so you'll see a lot of the preliminaries and sketches that lead to these final images. I may only post final colors from here on. 

After drawing the Batfamily, I needed to bring forth the villains I enjoy the most in the Bat universe. They are all in various costumes from different universes and incarnations (as apposed to the batfamily which is all in their new 52 costumes). These villains are dark enough, they didn't need the new treatment the New 52 gave most of them. I enjoyed doing my research and finding my favorites and I hope you enjoy this grouping of Arkhams finest. 
A Reason to Smile Cover by thelearningcurv
My kickstarter campaign was extremely successful and I now have my very own book that I have written and illustrated called "A Reason to Smile!" I have been on this site for 7 years and have learned a great deal which is part of why I am now a self published author and illustrator and love to be able to get a copy of the book into your hands.

The book is 8.5x8.5 and is available both as a softcover and a hardcover. The softcover has 44 pages of story and art based in NYC about a little girl who is a walking silver lining. She loves to people watch and gets a chance to do a lot of that in the Big Apple. Occasionally, she gets a chance to help people, and though the problems don't go away, they find an easier way to manage the problems. 

The book also comes as a hardcover with 16 extra pages that include: behind the scenes information about the kickstarter and promotion, extra story and art based on the original story, written by me and illustrated by me and 5 other artists.  
Those artists include :iconkharyrandolph:, :iconpaigey::iconnicolasrgiacondino:, :iconsimpsonscameos: & :iconmini-sys:

and email me at if you'd like your own copy of "A Reason to Smile!"

gotta love creating art of any kind=]

I mostly create comic book styled art with the various ventures into the realm of fine art. I have been attending comic book conventions for the past 4 years and am currently working on a children's book. I do custom illustrations as well as pencil and ink commissions.

Feel free to send me a note or e-mail me for any questions=]
