I was asked to do a live drawing on an 8x8ft wood canvas for the May 2018 OC Night Market in Costa Mesa, CA. I spent 7 hours on the first day and 6 hours on the second day.

I've been doing so many conventions and selling my art prints SO MUCH, NONSTOP, the past few months, that I needed this as kind of a palette cleanser. This pushed my technical skill, my confidence, and my physical stamina. And though it did reveal a lot of weaknesses I have, it was a perfect way to get started in this new direction in my art.

This was a very important project to me, and I appreciate the OC Night Market providing me a platform to be an artist and not just a salesman. Let me know what you all think of it.

Tools used: Pentel Fude (fine), Pentel Fude (thick), Pentel Pocket Brush.

Anniversary SALE for my Pokemon prints going on RIGHT NOW!

Thanks so much for the support you've all showed with this project. So All sizes are reduced in price for one week! FREE SHIPPING in the US.

It was exactly three years ago that I started the Draw Every Pokemon Ever project. This piece, truthfully, changed the trajectory of my life as an artist. It was the backbone to my start at conventions and my YouTube Channel.

It was a test of my resolve, and made me realize that even though I'm not the most skilled artist out there, I can work the nerve endings off my middle finger (literally) and still survive as an artist.

It's been there every step of the way. And even though I am working to do my original art, I'll never devalue the time I've given this project. And when I say I'd do it all over again, you all know I mean it... because I literally did do that.

Thanks buddy. I promise no more facelifts for you for at least another few months.

LVL UP has always been a consistently good show. Not amazing in regards to sales (for me), but always worth my time. The crowds are always high energy, as with most gaming events, and Vegas is inexpensive to stay in.

It's well run, and the staff has a lot of volunteers who are pretty useful when it comes to moving things around. The AA coordinator is quick to respond to my messages.

If you're in driving distance to this show, I'd recommend it. But have gaming-related products because that's what moves here. Anime stuff can get by, but you should really really capitalize on the gaming aspect of the crowd. As with most gaming events, things people don't have to carry around (like charms, stickers, keychains, card-sized prints) sell MUCH better than larger posters because game spectators aren't always in the market to be holding stuff all day.

I like this show, and I'll be applying again for 2019.

UPDATED FOR BRIGETTE! Also, this piece has been stolen and sold around a few conventions in Texas. If you picked one up, let me know where you bought it and who you got it from, if you can.

Thank you for all the support on this project!

Seriously, you are talented. But what are you afraid of with your ridiculous watertags?

Thank you. And my work has been stolen, reprinted, and sold at conventions. So I'm just taking small steps to help prevent spread of it in the future and of future pieces.
