Just added a couple prints to my Society6! Also they have free worldwide shipping currently, so if you want one, could be a good time!
Artist Interview: Simini Blocker
You may have noticed the wonderful profile pictures and the fabulous banner the blog has been sporting for a month or so now. Well, the artist is no other than Simini Blocker who also did the art for the special edition of Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor and Park. Today, we have an interview with her conducted by the fabulous Yash.
Simini Blocker is an illustrator based in New York City …
DId an interview thing!
The Darkling and his nichevo’ya.
I read the whole Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo while on vacation these past few weeks. So good. I want to draw so many things! Also I need to do some black & white work/test, and thought he’d be interesting to start with, though rather darker than my normal…
and I know their eyes don’t actually glow i took a liberty
Rainbow’s Landline is out in a month! Did you preorder yet?
Anyways. Here’s Georgie McCool and and a very worrisome telephone.

Hey! Reblogging this again because Landline comes out tomorrow!
And also, The launch event is tomorrow at 6 pm at the Barnes and Noble in Tribeca. You should go if you’re in New York.

Hey! I’m launching Landline July 8th in New York City at the Barnes & Noble in Tribeca. (At 6 p.m.)
This is the first time I’m having a book launch somewhere other than Omaha, and I’m feeling excited, but also nervous.
More event details here.
Q:Can you share your brushes with us :)?
For the most part, I use Kyle T Webster’s brush sets, along with a few I’ve collected from other places, so I can’t share them. But I TOTALLY RECOMMEND purchasing Kyle’s sets. Very worth the cost, and they have pretty much everything you could want. I think I’ve collected them all, though the gouache variants are my go-to.
I’ve gotten a couple asks about which program/materials I use. So Photoshop CS6 with a tablet and Kyle’s brushes. Basically that.
Q:Would you do Hazel Grace in 13? :)
Hazel of The Fault in Our Stars fame was suggested quite a few times. So I picked the palette I wanted to try…
Q:Would you do Etienne in 8? :)
First of the palette memes- Etienne St. Clair from Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins.
I’ll try to do a couple more… but I don’t remember the descriptions on quite a few. So apologies if I don’t get to yours!
