Sailor Moon and the Sailor Scouts!
The more I do comic con's the more I get requests for cute things. Sailor Moon is the closest to cute I can go in the Anime world so I thought it'd be fun to put the group together since I love to draw group shots... and am I the only one who though that Tuxedo Mask's design was really cool?
Last year I went Emerald City Comic Con and wanted to bring a print to the show showing some love to the city. Luiza Brillante, the star of "A Reason to Smile!" loves using her imagination and pretends shes a giant jumping into lakes when it really is just a puddle formed from the rain in her neighborhood. Do you still find fun and creative ways to use your imagination? 
I love doing sketch covers=] Would you like one from me?  Send me a note and lets make it happen!

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=]
