Ladies of Literature: Cassie.


"If you want to picture Cassie, think of a short, cute girl with very short black hair, wearing overalls and big muddy boots and looking totally capable of giving a tetanus shot to an angry bear"

So I was asked to be a part of the "Ladies of Literature" zine/charity project and just couldn't miss an opportunity to draw a character near and dear to my heart from my favorite book series growing up- Cassie from Animorphs. As an animal loving pre-teen she was pretty much everything I ever wanted to be.

Society of Illustrators Student Exhibition.



So this is very delayed, but here's a quick update with some news! Back in March I announced that I was selected to be Society of Illustrators student exhibition, and in May I attended the exhibition opening! It was an awesome night- I am so honored to have been able to show my work with so many skilled illustrators!

Animated Gif- Sailor Shannon.

 

My good friend/fellow illustrator Shannon May requested a Sailor Moon portrait gif based off of my self portrait edit, and I couldn't help but oblige!

Animated Gif- Self Portrait.


Did a new self portrait since I just got a haircut! For fun I took it and gave it a little Sailor Moon inspired editing. Figured it was a good opportunity to teach myself new things to do with gifs!

Sailor Moon Art Zine Kickstarter.


So you probably remember this piece I made for the Sailor Moon art zine "Moon Power" in October! Well, the Kickstarter to produce the zine was launched this past Saturday (March 16th) and managed to surpass its goal of $5,000 in less than 24 hours! If you can, please help support the production of this awesome illustration collection! You can check out the campaign and the pledge rates/rewards here

The Kickstarter has been paused due to an intellectual property dispute. I will update this post with any news regarding any change in status.

Unfortunately, the Moon Power Kickstarter had to be cancelled due to an intellectual property dispute. You can still help support the production of the zine by buying a sticker set/digital zine/pre-ordering, or you can donate- see the blog for a Paypal link!

More bad news- the online donations/orders/pre-orders had to be shut down as well. The printed zine will still debut at TCAF on May 11th-12th, but I am not sure how any further distribution past that will be allowed. I will continue to update this post with any news regarding the zine.

The zine can be purchased at:
TCAF: Toronto, Canada. May 11th-12th
VANCAF - Vancouver, British Columbia. May 25th-26th
CAKE - Chicago, Illinois. June 15th-16th
SPX - Bethesda, Maryland. September 14th-15th

A digital copy of the zine may be released for free in the near future.

Dinosaurs.


I've always been a huge fan of dinosaurs (I even planned on being a paleontologist at one point in my life). They are incredibly fascinating to me, and I had been meaning to draw some for a while. So when I found out I was accepted into the Light Grey Art Lab's newest show, Beautiful Forever, I knew exactly what I wanted to make temporary tattoos of. The dinosaurs featured are the Parasaurolophus and the Tyrannosaurus, two incredibly cool creatures (and some of my favorites)!

You can see the online gallery of all of the awesome illustrations featured in this show here, and if you are like me and can't make it to the opening, don't worry! These temporary tattoos can be purchased online here! If you buy mine, I'd love to have a photo of you sporting your prehistoric tats- send links/photos to kristenacampora@gmail.com!

Horse Portraits.






So as you can see, I've been pretty busy since my last post here- I got a handful commissions for horse portraits around the holidays, and now that I've finished the last of them I can finally show them to you! I had a good time working on them, especially since they gave me a chance to keep working with hand lettering!

Animated Gif- Alyson.


I've been very busy for the last few weeks, working on commissions and some personal work- I can't wait to show you all what I've been up to! In addition to all of that, I taught myself how to make gifs over the holiday! Here's the first one I've created- it was a little Christmas gift I whipped up for a very good friend of mine. I know it's super simple, but now I know how to make them... Keep an eye out, I'll definitely be making more in the future!
