Mobile mapper for DMP - roaming the US and Canada constantly. Maybe a bit of art and/or writing here and there to spice things up.

Jill "xtingu" Knapp said something in a brief chat recently that has me thinking about other folks who might appreciate the kind of illustrative stuff that I do.

So I decided to do some brainstorming, and this is the list I currently have:

  • DMs / Players
  • Developers (ttrpg)
  • Developers (apps / digital games)
  • TTRPG Adjacent Companies (Think Role Play Grow interviews)
  • Authors (children's books)
  • Authors (fantasy)
  • New Artists
  • Librarians / Bookstore Owners
  • Social Media Profile Owners

Anyone else have any ideas that I should add to the list?

Bookstore employees. Literacy campaigns. After-school programs. If you drew a picture of your nephews reading a big hardcover book, surrounded by a big male lion, a cool-looking elf archer, a mermaid, a giant robot, a lady scientist, a jungle explorer and a witch, you’d have every librarian, teacher and bookstore worker buying that t-shirt, poster and mug.
These are great - I'll add them to the list!
Now that everyone works remotely, and they all rely on Slack or Discord or some equivalent service, I think there's a market for someone to come draw avatars for everyone to use on their comms channels.
I’d use that.
Thanks guys - I'll add it to the list. A couple years back, I did these, and they might work.
I like these a lot.
Thanks! They're even fun to do. :)
Considering the trend of creepy AI crafted avatars, I’d much rather have an artisanal hand drawn avatar that makes me look a little younger and healthier than I am in real life, especially if it has a real artist’s signature on it.
On Slack our avatars are so tiny that they might not work for promoting the artist much, which is a problem. But I have to have a team bio picture and I often have to have a professional picture for work presentations that are open to the public. How much do you charge for social media avatar images?
Something like what I did above would be between $30 and $60 (depending on complexity etc).

If you just need some "Photoshopping" of an existing pic to *ahem* 'remove imperfections' I'd happily do that for you for free. 😁
I like the idea of these, but for me the lightning bolt split down the middle makes it hard to see the person’s face.
Yeah - I thought about that a bit too late. You can see if a bit in the pics for the ladies. In theirs, I reduced the 'haze' given off in the area of the face. In the future, I would likely do even less there.

I recently mentioned that I'm working on my plans for my illustration work. Well, I've put up a pretty big (for me anyway) post over on my site. If you're interested in such things, I welcome any thoughts you have on the subject.

How much you you charge for a 11 x 14 custom color painting (kinda like the one in your post, but with a girlchild, and visions of roblox, quidditch, cats, minecraft . . .) I'm <redacted> if you wanna talk directly.
I've copied the email and will send you something shortly. Since I now have it, you may want to edit it out since this is a public post.

Or not. I'm not the boss of you. :) (Just being a touch paranoid on your behalf.)
