    Up to this point, artists are by invites only. However, there will be an open submission/contest soon, so keep an eye out for that for a chance to be featured!

    Last text-heavy post for a while, hopefully! Art will come soon! I’m excited to say that I’ll be joining up as an artist on this Supernatural-themed art book! It’s going to be a charity art book, with a portion of the profits going to Action Against Hunger:

    Being among these other insanely talented people is absolutely an honor for me, Thanks to 

    http://sollier.tumblr.com/ and http://mintangible.tumblr.com/

    for putting this thing together. While I won’t be able to show the final image until the book is completed, you’ll be seeing little snippets of it here and there. Yay! :)

     

  3. On the same subject

    Anyone that has a Society6 account, let me know so that I can promote / follow your work! ;)

     
  4. Hey, guess what! I recently signed up for a Society6 account, and will be selling prints, as well as other fun things (like iPhone skins and framed art prints) out of the site. I’m really stoked about this, because I think it will reduce a little bit of the stress that came from packaging my own prints, at least for now.

    So, in the store, I’ve made a few different images available, as well as some select sketchbook pages, as you can see in the images above. If there is anything at all that you would be interested in buying that isn’t listed, do not hesitate to let me know, and I’ll make it available. 

    You can find my Society6 store HERE, under the username artofkellyjohnson

    While Society6 provides really nice quality products, they will not be hand signed. If you would still like a signed print, you can find those over at my Storenvy shop.They’ll be a little more expensive there, yet more personalized as well.

    Thanks for hanging in there with me, guys! And I hope you’ll spread the word!

  5. This is probably the most patriotic commission I have done, and will ever do. God bless ‘Murica!

    This guy, a retired Marine, wanted his 2000 Mustang with the hood up, in front of some flags. He liked it so much when I presented the print to him, that he and his wife took me out to dinner! I don’t know how I’ve ended up with such nice clients, but I’m loving it!

     
  6. Yeah, yeah, not that exciting, but it’s work! Sketches for another car commission. This time a 1962 Corvette. I’m really pumped for this one. Secretly hoping they pick a desert scene because I LOVE DESERTS.

     
  7. Still working on a few projects that are taking up a good amount of my available arting time. So… here, have some more instagram’d sketches!

     
  8. Haven’t posted much recently, but only cause I’ve been hard at work on a few projects for this month!
    In the meantime, I got some prints made for a show this week. Should be fun!

    Love it!

    Ahhh you’re so nice what do I even say other than ‘huhu thank you!’

  10. Trying to get this 00’ Mustang commission done relatively quickly, and I’m surprised at how I’m feeling more and more comfortable with painting cars now. I guess all those straight lines are just plain relaxing to draw. 

    Also learned this week that an old teacher of mine at LCAD refers to me as “the car girl”, and tells everyone how good I am at making cars in Illustrator. Um no, no Illustrator here. Just Photoshop.
