A month ago, I finally decided to post to my Bored Barista Instagram and Facebook pages that I was available for commissions!
And, I’ll admit, I wasn’t expecting to receive any requests so soon.
“Stanley and Willow” – Chimehour Character Art (Author Caitlin E. Jones)
“Vincent” – Chimehour Character Art (Author Caitlin E. Jones)
From left to right: Stanley, Willow, and Vincent from author Caitlin E. Jones’ novel Chimehour.
I was so excited to work on more character art for Caitlin E. Jones. It’s always a pleasure to work with her and bring her characters to life. Also, her novella, The Spectre and the Governess, (and the first ever design project I worked on for her) is now available in paperback, so be sure to check it out! I’m excited to see the cover in person, and knowing me, I don’t doubt I’ll get a bit emotional seeing it.
“Kaznar from An Unlikely Company by Tyler R. Lee”
“Grindor from An Unlikely Company by Tyler R. Lee”

I then had the pleasure of working with another author for the first time as well! Author Tyler R. Lee has a variety of unique and memorable characters in his novel An Unlikely Company, the first book in his NetherGate Trilogy, and it was fun getting to draw a couple of them! As someone who doesn’t often draw wizards and dwarves, I welcomed the opportunity!
I’d like to thank them again for the commission requests, and it brings me joy to know they’re happy with the final results of each piece!
If you’re looking to possibly win a character drawing for free, I do have a giveaway going on from now until August 3rd on my Facebook page! (See the pinned post!) And while I’m still available for commissions, I admit I won’t be able to complete them as quickly for the rest of July. (I will still happily work on them, but any new requests will just be a while before I’ll have them done!)
After my giveaway, I’ll also start focusing more on other pieces, like new prints, buttons, and possibly a few other goodies for some events later this year, but I’ll get into the details of those another day. 🙂
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
