The Foolish Mortal
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
I was one of those kids who spent most of their time with either a nose in a book or a pencil in hand.

After various attempts to focus on more "mature" and "serious" fields like acting or writing in junior high I finally gave in during high school and started seriously studying art.

After surviving various art classes in high school and college settings I am now the artist you see today. For better or for worse.

From Krampus with Love by lissa-quon
From Krampus with Love
I had so much fun doing Krampusnacht cards last year, and they seemed to be a hit with folks so I decided to give the bastard another run this year. 

Krampus cards - have two modes tradtionally - there are the usual "chase around, kidnap and terrorize children" motifs which I usually do. And then a skeevier "Krampus gets his mack on" motif. His design takes a lot of traditional elements from satyrs and he is alternatively described as a "demon" or "incubus" - so there's a fair amount of ground for the more...risque versions to play with. 

This year I decided to play with the motif of "Krampus gets his groove on" - though I kept things fairly low key, cause I do send these out to family and some of them find my weirdness amusing but only if I don't go TOO FAR. 

For anyone interested in sending this card celebrating love despite all obstacles - to your own friends and family, or any of my other Krampus cards - they are available on Redbubble - www.redbubble.com/people/fooli…?

Baku
Another piece I did for the monster show. This critter is a creature from Japanese folklore called a baku. Which is a helpful animal that eats nightmares.

Kitsune
I am never any good with titles. 

I'm doing a Monster themed art show at a local gallery this year. I decided to keep things simple and do a fox lady instead of sifting through yokai.com for something utter bizzarre and wtf. 

For anyone interested, this is available as various things on <a wytiwyg="1" href="www.redbubble.com/people/fooli…" redbubble">

If anyone was curious about the digital programs and hardware I use to work on the art you see on this page you are in luck!

I've got a short write up of my digital tools posted on my Art Blog - I'll probably try to tackle traditional media at a later date. 

If anyone has any questions about specific pieces and techniques feel free to drop me a line.

Papyrus by lissa-quon
Papyrus
A while back I ended up in exile from my usual workstation so I had to dig out my traditional stuff. Heres a warm up of Papyrus I did in my sketchbook.
