    The fearsome… the monstrous… Red Panda.

    Fun project this week, and a new addition to the creature/predator/ general animal face series I’ve been working on. I mixed in Crayola washable markers this time, I think they’re just as effective as Tombows!

    Just one of several t-shirt designs I created for the Misty Mountain String Band. If you haven’t been to their Kickstarter page, go check it out! You can get a copy of their new album, CD or vinyl, and score one of these great shirts too!

    Tui! These New Zealand birds are gorgeous. I love the white feather tuft on the throat, especially. India ink, watercolor, and Tombow marker.
Prints, etc. can be found on my Society6 page, and the original is also for sale :)

    Hello all! I’m so excited to announce that Kentucky’s own Misty Mountain String Band is releasing their second album, Brownsboro! I had the honor of illustrating the entire album. This my favorite type of work. And it was a huge privilege.

    Check out MMSB’s Kickstarter, pledge a buck or two and help the band reach their goal! You’ll get a beautiful album, filled with amazing bluegrass folk music, and so many other great pledge options to choose from. (I’m particularly excited for the vinyl copies….)

    Anonymous asked: Hai I'd like to know what art supplies you use and the best place ud recommend to buy stuff


    Answer:

    Hey Anon! I’ve compiled the Finch Fight Ultra-List of Useful Utensiles. These are the first supplies I run out of, because I use them so much:

    - Higgins Black Magic Waterproof Ink

    - Speedball nib pens + nibs

    - Canson or Strathmore watercolor paper. Arches or Windsor-Newton paper is great, too, but these brands are pricy. Hot- or cold-press papers produce different effects in paint, so try experimenting with both. 

    - Tombow Dual Brush or Crayola Washable markers. These mix really well with paints.

    - Reeves watercolor paint. 

    As for places to buy supplies, I’m always a fan of locally-owned art stores  (they usually have student discount programs, too). Otherwise, try DickBlick, Utrecht, or Jerry’s Artarama retailers online. 

    Hope this helps :)
