I posted an entry about frequently asked questions some years ago but I couldn't find it in the archive folder, it seems my very old entries disappeared for some reason. So, I think it's time to post some FAQs again!
1. What your favorite drawing tools?
I work in a variety of tools - markers, watercolor, ink, pastels, gouache, graphite - though I enjoy mostly markers and watercolors.
My favorite drawing tools are Letraset products
(Tria and Pro markers) and I like Italian watercolors like Maimeri
. Foreign materials - I mean, not European - are usually quite expensive and I really don't like to purchase expensive art tools or paper. They don't give me any chance to experiment since I'm always afraid I can ruin them
2. What is your preferred paper?
My favorite paper is Fabriano
. I can easily find it in local art-stores and I can buy it in large individual sheets or drawing pads, smooth or rough, heavyweight or lightweight, white or creamy, depending if I'm working on a piece mainly done in watercolors or markers. I have some Moleskine notebooks
too, the watercolors ones are the best to me!
3. Do you take commissions?
I currently accept commissions on a very limited basis, I'm quite busy working on my first graphic novel for Editions du Riez, a French editor. However, if I was asked to draw something I find very, very interesting I would probably accept it! Commissions are always a challenge and it's great when you can push yourself in new directions!
Don't hesitate to contact me for info, prices, etc, etc
4. Do you sell originals, prints?
Yes, I do. Originals, prints and merchandise can only be bought on my Etsy store at: www.etsy.com/shop/nati
Contact me if you're interested in buying an original and you don't see it listed on Etsy. Most of my original work is sold but maybe the illustration you like is still available.
No time to write a tutorial but I often post Work in Progress shots on my fan-page
or on my Flickr gallery
