Howdy all!

I've finally reached that next big milestone: 10,000 pageviews! W00T!! This is going to be a particularly short journal as I haven't produced much art in the past month.  I have worked on a couple commissions (still in the works), but primarily I have been creating my studio space after many months of saving!

I purchased an easel, lightbox, and matte cutter for my painting studio (just needs a table!) and this weekend I will be purchasing the parts for my new computer!  My laptop is no longer strong enough to paint in photoshop, which is why my art production has been low (the commission I am working on is traditional and I don't like to work on more than one traditional piece at a time).
So that is super exciting!  I have never had a private, organized, specific to me studio and I am SO happy to see this through!  It's not really a specific room since I live in an apartment, but it's something.

My birthday was earlier in the month and this week I am going to attempt to prepare a Thanksgiving Turkey & meal!! 

Once all this holiday / computer building business is over with, you can expect more regular art from me, I promise!

If you are interested in commissioning work from me, please see my previous journal entry (9,000 views one). :)

Thanks you especially to my 72 watchers and the over 6,000 people who "like" my page on Facebook! <3
Your support means the world to me.

Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
My name is Rachel and I am an Illustrator fresh out of college, pursuing professional freelance work. I work as a graphic designer at a comic book publisher and I fiddle with a variety of things, always seeking new challenges and knowing that there is always room to improve! :)

In the past year, I have won a place in the Society of Illustrator's annual student exhibition as well as "Outstanding Performance in Illustration" (Best In Show) at the senior thesis exhibition at Moore College of Art & Design. I have exhibited my work at art festivals and small art galleries with upcoming shows scheduled for 2015. It is my goal to start showing at Artist Alleys at east coast Comicons next year as well.

I primarily work digitally, using a Wacom tablet and Adobe Photoshop CS6. I also enjoy traditional media, especially pencil/ink drawing and oil painting (sometimes acrylics).

My main artistic interests are cover/pinup art and character design. I have a strong interest in fantasy/sci-fi genres and anything that allows me to infuse some rock-n-roll into my work.

Catwoman by Rai-Kay
Catwoman
I am beyond excited to finally have this completed!  I love Batman and this is my favorite lady, so every so often I have to paint her again.  I thought it would be cute to have her befriend a few Lying Cats too! Though, probably not the best cats for this burglar to have around...
Sketch and lines were done in pencil, painted in Photoshop.

Catwoman Line-Art by Rai-Kay
Catwoman Line-Art
I wanted to upload the (digitally) inked line-art of my newest Catwoman piece before I start painting it!  The original drawing is in pencil, which I kind of prefer but it is easier for me to paint digitally with clean, 'inked' lines.

The Last Thriller by Rai-Kay
The Last Thriller
HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!!! This is a piece I have been working on during my lunch breaks at work since I am in need of a new computer.  So, progress has been a bit slow, but it is coming along and I am almost done with it!  I will update this when it is finished but I wanted to share on Halloween!

I hope everyone's spooky holiday is quite the Thriller ;) Stay safe and have a fun night!

(work in progress)
RIP Michael Jackson and everyone who has been slaughtered so far on the Walking Dead!

Thank you!  :D  I'm glad you like it.  I promise I'll show away my inner introvert and say "hi" the next time I see you at a convention!  I'm hoping to start getting a table at smaller cons next year, myself.

You have some interesting pieces. You mention that you are a comic book publisher. Maybe you want to come over to my gallery and have a little look at what I've been working on.

I will gladly take a look at your profile when I get out of work :)
But, I am not personally a comic book publisher.  I work for one called Dynamite
