I'm a book cover/interior illustrator/comic artist. I manage to pay bills and raise a family doing this--So I guess that means I'm adequate at it. There are a lot of things I'm still learning, but I grow every day, so this is a win, I believe.

Right now I am busy with oodles of work of varying kinds. So if I seem missing here sometimes, it's because I'm VERY stretched out over a lot of projects. I spend an easy 14 hours a day in studio. But I do love dA and so I try to be here as often as I can.

I'm not a spring chick. I have one child in high school and one in college. That says it all. But I'm pretty young at heart. I still love all the things I did when I was a a younger woman. (Wait a minute, that may just mean I never grew up....) I also have (in no particular order) loads of cool friends, a cockatiel, several cats, a very tall husband, some tropical fish, an iguana and far too many squirrels (in my yard. they're wild, even if they do beg for toast).

My favorite tool is my huge Wacom. It's been dropped, burned, covered in drink and sent off to be repaired, SO MANY times that the wacom people now laugh at me. My second most favorite tool is my custom PC which has so much RAM and Processor that I can do my digital arts at super light speed. I am suspecting it can time travel--Haven't tried that out yet. I also love Photoshop. (Though not CS4. CS4 was the ugly, smelly, unloved Adobe changeling child) I'm currently using CS5.

I listen to a wide variety of music, but my heart still lies in hard core scene. You can take the girl out of the goth, but you can't take the goth out of the girl. Additionally, I have several "closet loves" in terms of music. Stuff I take flack for liking. My Chemical Romance is at the top of that list. (Hush. I've already heard it all.)

I don't do social networking very well. Tumblr confuses me, Facebook annoys me and I forget I even have a Twitter account. But I am in all three places, so if you find me there I'll try to keep in touch.

That's about me in a nutshell... If there's anything else you'd like to know, PM me.

Whew! GenCon was super!

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 25, 2012, 10:20 PM


I've hit the ground running.


I'm back from GenCon and a visit to my family up north and today, in between trying to catch up to the MOUNTAIN of emails I have, I finished the inks for the final page of Sophie's 5 page comic commission for her DA2 Hawke and Fenris. This next week I start the colors.

I won't be traveling for a while now, thank goodness, and in between gigs, I will be doing more commissions. Melissa, yours is next!

GenCon was amazing. I met so many people....so many of C.S.Marks' fans. And it was great. It was crazy busy, but there was a strangely nice rhythm to it that kept it from being quite too much. I met a ton of great authors out there too. (Hi Matt!) And I got a really good feel for the GenCon Artist's alley, something I want to try myself next year. So next year I'll hopefully be attending with my own table, launching (if all goes well) Hadrian.

Hugs to all...

Has anyone gotten word on their long overdue commissions yet?

We haven't heard from her in months since she last told us she was going to get back to us real soon. One and a half years of waiting on our end. We even contacted DeviantArt to get in touch with her, but they will do nothing. They were rude, in fact.

Same here. I've been sending emails and notes, but never got anything back the whole year. And PayPal of course won't do a thing, because my reclamation wasn't within 45 days. Looks like she just took our money and we'll never get it back...

Nope... and there are at least 6 people, myself included, she has taken money from and ignored. :(

This is getting really ridiculous... please refund the money we paid you for commissions that we never got. We've gotten countless promises of how you'd send us an update soon, but nothing ever came. Give at least our money back...

Yes Hope, please respond. If you won't or can't finish this work, then you need to do the right thing and refund our money.

Hope. Please respond to those of us who have paid for and have been waiting to receive our promised artwork. You have multiple comments from people--including us--regarding this serious issue. You must do what is right and send us all our artwork

Please reply to my numerous emails and notes. I want my money back seeing as you never completed my commission. Ridiculous.

I'm a little worried that something happened to her. I haven't heard from her since March... :/ My commission is over a year overdue too.

Hope has done the same disappearing act to us. It's been going on for over a year. She claims her email doesn't work properly. Every so many months she responds, completely ignoring the pertinent topic, and says she'll get back to us "soon." As far as we're concerned, we're out $300 because of her. It's maddening!

Mine is 2 and a half years, so I think she may well just be commission dodging, considering she's been active here but not responding to me.

Holy crap, and I thought mine was late (commissioned in March 2013 with what she said would be a "two week turn around")! What a shame... I have sent her tons of emails too and finally gave up. I didn't know she was active on here but I am not DA-savvy so I can't tell when people were last active... I did see she has a website with a phone number listed but I haven't tried calling...
