I am an artist and web developer. I run the website sleepycomics.com. I specialize in "damsel in distress" themed art, usually with a sleepy twist added in.

I never thought I would become an artist. One day though, I decided I am going to give this 'art thing' a shot. And boy did I suck my first year doing this. I kept at it though, and I've now produced over 200 pieces. My art fluctuates in quality, so please bear with me! This is still a learning process for me.

Thank you, and enjoy my gallery. And don't forget to visit sleepycomics.com!

Time flies so fast.  I can't believe 2013 is coming to an end.  I did a count, and I only drew about 16 pieces this year.  That's largely a consequence of my situation.  I ended up finding a full time job around May of this year.  That pretty much sucked all my time from art.  To get my latest Supergirl piece up, I had to really fight to find time.  It paid off handsomely!

Looking back, my favorite piece this year is Sailor Neptune and Uranus Peril - fav.me/d5un8v8.  Wow, that one took a lot of effort.  Scenes like that are hard to top.  

I'm disappointed that I wasn't able to make more art.  I'm disappointed that I haven't updated sleepycomics.com as much either.  But this is no time to sit around and feel bad about myself.  I realize that I have limited time on this Earth, and I need to start taking action if I want to leave an amazing legacy of work.

I have some renewed confidence in my digital art abilities.  When 2014 rolls around, I want to start pushing my skills to the limit.  Here's my resolution for the new year:
* Dramatically improve my digital painting skill.  No more cel-shaded coloring.
* Branch out and draw characters I've never done before.  Take risks!
* Draw more elaborate scenes, involving three or more characters.  
* Learn better techniques for drawing hair and shoes!
* Put more effort into each piece.  I'm thinking around two weeks per piece, to really polish it.
* Focus on producing art more regularly.  It's very easy to get sidetracked and lose motivation.  

What really motivates me, is community feedback!  I make art so people can enjoy it.  I love keeping track of how many favorites each piece gets.  I've learned that bondage art tends to get a bigger response.  I'm willing to alternate between bondage and sleepy art to appease both fan bases.

I'm always open to questions and feedback.  I visit this site regularly, more than Facebook or even sleepycomics.com!  I'll end this post by asking my readers: what are some things you would like to see me produce in 2014?

Thanks!
