Commission Time!

I’ve been sort of exploding with creativity lately. I’m working on books, curating, and now experimenting with my art.

For the past year, this seems to be where my art is taking me, abstract, watercolor, line work. It actually extends further than that to a painting on fabric elective I took in 2011.

I’m going to start taking my art more seriously now that I have a direction.

If you’re interested in my work, feel free to contact me at aubreymeeksart@gmail.com for commission rates and work for sale 🙂

Amelia, Illustrated!

She did it again! aegisdea made me another amazing Character Portrait, this time for Amelia. ❤ ❤ ❤

“You know what Archer? I know you mean well and all that jazz, but I mean it. I don’t want to be fixed. And you’re just going to stand there and look so annoyingly unsmug and tell me, oh but Amelia you’ll be happier if you get help, you won’t worry so much, you’ll be able to do so much more, well you know what? I don’t want to do more. I like being nervous and obsessive and compulsive. I don’t know who I’d be without this disorder and I think I’d just be … bad. Straight up, bad. I want to be myself and be afraid of things that have consequences. I don’t want to be carefree all the time. This is who I am and I like it. If you don’t that’s your problem. Just stop trying to fix me, man!”

So that’s a little snippet from Amelia. I’m not sure if it will make it into the book, but she’ll say something like this one way or another 😀 Amelia is another original character from my manuscript, Archer and the Lust Boys

I’m cooking up a new character who looks like this!!!

I did this illustration quickly today. Let me know if you know who the model is, because I don’t 😦

New Composition with Bill Skarsgård as Archer

Archer

I used a photo of Bill Skarsgård as reference, drew him with curly hair, made the colors however I wanted. and made a cool background. Woo.

So after all that’s done: This is how I imagine the main character of my novel. His name is Archer.

 

Louis Tomlinson

Louis

Here’s an illustrated portrait of Louis Tomlinson of One Direction. The project was in collaboration with @imbonnieparker on instagram, so I’ve added her original tag in there. She does these great photoshop edits so we collaborated a bit.  I used her edit as inspiration for this image.
