|Something a little sinister with that sweet.|
Wanna help me afford prints from other artists and other pointless stuff from deviantart? You could always donate points!
Or hey, why not donate to my Paypal firstname.lastname@example.org? That's REAL money I could use for, like, food and stuff. Thanks!
Thank you, for your donation to my 1 point goal. Let's crank that up to 5! Whoo-hoo!
COMMISSION AND CONTACT INFO
Commissions are always open unless I announce otherwise!
I DO NOT take requests or art trades. But suggestions for art and sharing your work with me is always welcome.
If you'd like to contact me for art inquiries and commissions, email me at email@example.com or send me a note here. The email is generally faster.
Please DO NOT send me an email to chat, send requests, or do any other social media stuff! I may block your email address if you do so. If you just want to chat, comment on this profile or on my art you want to talk about. Notes are fine, too.
And now onto the real bio…
Howdy-doo! Name's Laura Loo. I'm an eccentric mid-twenties gal from the Bay Area who's got a taste for both the sinister and the sweet. What do I mean by that? Well, if you're looking for an artist to draw your cuddly and cute, that's me. If you're looking for an artist to draw your creepy and cooky (and altogether ooky) that would also be me. Of course I can also draw just about anything in between and even beyond… if that makes sense.
I recently graduated with a BA in Design Studies. I've taken LOTS of art classes throughout my college career and strive to be something of a lifelong learner, so if you have any questions about how I draw and what I know, feel free to ask. And don't forget to drop your own advice too! I hope to get a graphic novel project I've been planning for years off the ground soon along with some other independent comics. I used to be an airbrush graphics designer and someday would like to get back to customizing and creating material with my own shop. This takes funds–and location, location, location–so it may take a while. Apart from that, lots of different projects are likely to be on my plate.
If you look around my gallery, you'll notice a couple of patterns. One is that I draw a lot of animals and creatures. "Critters," as I call them, have always been some of my favorite subjects. My first memory of making art was of painting dinosaurs at my aunt's house as a wee four-year-old. Ahh, good times. The other pattern is that I usually use traditional media. I'm working on getting some more digital media into the mix, but you can expect a lot of traditional textures and faux-collage when I do.
(Also I draw too much fanart)
Thank you for visiting. Have a nice day!

(I have very little to watch on youtube because I haven't made a lot of videos. I hope to have some storyboards/animatics soon if I can get around to making/finishing them. But you can check out public playlists to see what my favorite music is, what I find scary, and what I'm nerdy about!)
