I’ve only been posting sketchbook work lately. But I’m exploring the media and my style and feeling it change and feeling uncomfortable and excited about it. My point is, I want to share this “journey” with ya’ll. #sketchbook #illustration #pencil
I’m gonna start drawing the guests on Dr. Phil #sketchbook #art #illustration #draw #drphil #pencil
I have really terrible ideas. Sometimes I have to draw them. This is inspired from hearing the one and only T-PAIN’s “Apple Bottom Jeans” on the radio today.
Tumblr Of The Week: anneeschwank
We’ve posted some works from Annee Schwank in the past, this week we decided to feature her blog as our Septagon Studios Tumblr Of The Week. Her illustrations are amazing and her blog is scattered with all kinds of awesome process work. She has a unique style with a lot of cool illustrations that I’m sure you guys will appreciate. Also, be sure to check out her instagram @ http://instagram.com/anneeschwank and behance page here: https://www.behance.net/anneeschwank. Annee Schwank, we love your work, looking forward to seeing more of your stuff on Tumblr. :)

Glad to see you're doing so well in the art world C: I was just wondering how were you able to get yourself out there, as in how did you promote yourself and obtain all these opportunities?
Hey! Thanks for the question! It’s a really good one and I am delighted to answer it.
The way I sort of captain the vessel that is my freelance career is first through having work I can get behind and a solid commitment to putting myself out there. Both are incredible difficult to do! Something that I have learned pretty quickly on is that it does not matter if it is right, but that it is good. You can interpret that as you may. A few more things that are ultra important are to be professional, approachable, and most importantly consistent! SOCIAL MEDIA IS VERY IMPORTANT! I use Tumblr, Twitter, Behance and Instagram, plus portfolio website and a store on Society6 to show my work. I also attend illustration conferences and comic conventions so I can turn those amazing connections I’ve made on social media into real life friendships, partnerships, business etc.
Lastly, be patient, it doesn’t happen overnight but if you keep at it, stay inspired and continue to have strong work, than those opportunities that come along can easily be yours.
I am figuring out all of this myself, so I hope that helps. If you have any more questions, I would be PUMPED to answer them the best I can.
I’m on the front page of Illustration Age!!!

It’s okay to be a dick sometimes.

Got my sample shirt from TEEPUBLIC. They look great, are soft, and they fit well! I’m very excited to be printing my designs with them.
