Abbey

I would like you to meet Abbey. Abbey is the title character of a children’s fairytale book, where I am both the illustrator and the author! After years of illustrating for others, I have decided to work on the manuscripts I have had for years just gathering dust. Stay tuned for more! 📚 🎨 📚 🎨

The Fairies of June

The Sprite and the Fairy 

Disney Fan Art

Drawn for one of my best friend’s birthday.

I think fairies may be my absolute favorite subject to draw.  I have always admired art that contained them. I do believe I have more art that I have done containing fairies than anything else.

If you like my art and would like to commission me or purchase any of my original  work please visit my website at http://www.alysathena.com/

The Digital Art

It has been a slower month for me, digitally speaking.  As I am doing illustrations for an upcoming children’s book, I am drawing digitally less. (See previous post explaining more here)

I was however compelled to do a few honoring Easter.  Hardly in the traditional sense of course.  As when do I ever do anything traditionally?

Here are some of the digital creations.  An Egg theme throughout.

I hope you all had a beautiful, blessed Easter!!

Organic Art Month

I am amidst illustrating another children’s book.  Within as much, I am drawing virtually NON stop digitally. It seems I have a substantial need to balance my creativity.  When ever I am doing a lot of digital art I tend to offset it by then doing an equal amount of organic art. Or, at least as much as my ever failing hands will allow. Here are a few of the organic pieces I have created this month. I tend to fair better as an illustrator when I let the artist within come out.

Enchanted Twilight (Series) 2

I have completed a few more to add to the Enchanted Twilight series.

I imagine I will be able to focus more on my art as I have come to realize my employers focus more on their needs than work. In turn, I am following suit. I have essentially put my own needs career wise on hold and was focusing on other’s needs. I was enlightened today by some very rude remarks.

As I am losing my sight and the use of my hands, I shall no focus on what I need and what my family needs and not put someone else’s needs before ours.
