...Avatar Aang... by thelearningcurv
...Avatar Aang...
Avatar Aang from "Avatar, the Last Airbender" has been a very fun character to follow on the journey he took to become a fully realized Avatar. His faliures and friends who supported him through them were very inspiring and extremely entertaining. I was very happy and proud to see the successes the character accomplished through the show and uplifted my spirits whenever I watched the show.
I am down to my last 12 books from my 500 book order of "A Reason to Smile!" that was funded from my successful Kickstarter campaign! I expect to be sold out before I get to C2E2 but my next Kickstarter will be launching in the next day or so! You can still get copies of book 1 as well as the new book 2!
...Avatar Korra... by thelearningcurv
...Avatar Korra...
I've been blessed by seeing the Avatar series and I was so happy to see Korra envisioned. I loved season 1 so much and did this as my tribute to the show. I will be posting the Avatar Aang inks soon as well, and will hopefully have them as companion pieces for C2E2 at the end of the month=] Stay tuned

Legend of Korra Inks
I had attempted to be a part of the Nickelodeon gallery exhibit that had allowed fans to submit their fanart of Avatar and I chose to do something focusing on Season 1 of Legend of Korra. Colors to come! 
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=]
