Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use your art for a tattoo?
Go for it! As long as the artwork is not labelled as someone else's commission, you can use my artwork as a tattoo. All I ask is for a $30 USD donation to be made to me through my Ko-fi or Paypal (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you're comfortable, I'd also love to see a picture of your tattoo once it's all done!
Can you design a tattoo for me?
Absolutely! I can create a design for you, but please bear in mind that I'm not a tattoo artist and that the artwork I create will most likely be modified by the tattoo artist to make it a great tattoo.
Feel free to reach out through my Commissions Form.
Do you sell stickers/prints/tshirts?
I currently only sell prints at my INPRNT Shop. Original artwork will occasionally be posted and sold here, but if you see a piece you like, don't hesitate to ask!
Shirts can be found at my Tee-Public!
Are you open for art trades?
Unfortunately I'm too busy to take on any art trades at the moment.
Can I draw/create something based on one of your illustrations?
Yes - as long as it's for personal use and not for sale/contest/other projects. Please also credit me in your description for the original design, and give me a heads up so I can take a look once you're done! I'm always excited for fan made pieces!
What pens/art supplies do you use?
For most of my artwork, I use acrylic based paint markers called POSCA pens. They come in multiple sizes and colors, with some colors being restricted to certain sized pens only. If you're ever curious about the colors they offer, you can have a look at POSCA's Color Range. They can be found on Amazon or at your local art store!
My other favorite/most commonly used pens are the Zebra Fude Brush Pens and Sakura Pigma Microns.
For watercolors, I use the Kuretake Clean Color Zig Pens, Kuretake Gansai Watercolor Set, and the Coliro M600 Metallic Watercolor Set.
What kind of paper do you use?
For my POSCA work, I use mainly hotpress watercolor paper or Canson Smooth Bristol (Vellum finish) paper.
For watercolor and inkwork, I use both Canson Smooth Bristol (Vellum finish), hotpress Arches watercolor paper or Fabriano hotpress cotton paper.
Do you have any tips for POSCA pens?
POSCAs are very unique in that they can layers colors almost completely opaque on top of nearly any waterproof surface (ex: Acrylic paint, plastic, wood, other POSCA layers). Always test out how your POSCAs interact with the other mediums you're working with before you work on your main drawing! Sometimes you'll find that some colors layer better on top than others, so you'll need to plan your layers accordingly to get clean, crisp colors.
Always let the layers dry before putting more ink on top, and always have a scrap piece of paper ready to smear off any stray "strings" off your POSCA pen tips. There are also excellent beginner's guides to POSCAs that can be found on Youtube.
If you'd like an in-depth class by me, I also have a POSCA specific course here with Class101.
Can I print out my commission on [item]?
As long as the item is for personal use and not for sale (ex: selling to your friends/business), please go ahead!
Can I repost your artwork on my account?
No, please don't repost my artwork, even with credit. If you're a corporate entity, please reach out to me through email, thanks!
I saw someone sell/steal your artwork, what should I do?
First of all, thank you so much for keeping an eye out for art theft! If it's a person claiming their artwork to be mine, feel free to send me a dm with their information - typically I'll just dm them to remove the artwork or credit me. Please do not harass anyone on my behalf, everyone deserves an opportunity to learn!
If you spot a website selling tshirts/merch, it's unfortunately so common that it's really hard to take down ALL of them. If it's a specific individual artist impersonating me or blatantly stealing my designs, please dm me to let me know! Typically for copyright takedowns, only I (the copyright holder) can legally submit a request to take down stolen work.
