My name is J. Wichmann and I am an writer/illustrator/graphic designer living in upstate NY. I've had a passion for art as long as i can remember (though after seeing all the beautiful faces and talented photographers here makes me think i should have gone in a different direction :P ) i've done everything from pottery, to jewelry, print making, sculpture, photography, weird abstract art with hidden meaning, and more but my continuing focus has been in illustration and graphic design.
I specialize in comic book and fantasy based pinups, illustration and stories and am currently producing a 12 issue adventure romance comic book series. My general comic book work is good old fashioned & traditional pencil on paper. Once completed my page gets scanned to the computer, where i clean up and digitally enhance the line art which then gets sent off to my colorist. The page eventually comes back to me where it goes into a post production process of having the word balloons and story captions applied etc.
If you have any questions about my art, art in general, what the weather is like in upstate NY today, don't be shy, drop me a message, and if you're complete overwhelmed by my talent (or lack of) and need to be immortalized right away with art I'm looking for:
• models or photographers interested in promotional trade of stock or extra
imagery for art use. (trade)
• models for figure drawing sessions (paid/hourly)
• models to pose for reference photos that will later be turned into pieces of
art - either pinup or for story use (paid or trade depending)
• Further down the line I also plan on looking for models to work conventions
with my studio (ie: dress up as characters, make fan boys drool, take
pictures with convention go-ers, promote yourself etc etc...) (paid or trade depending)
My budgets are currently small to none with compensation being print and promotional trade, and/or to be determined prior to working together. I work in a very professional manor and i expect that from anyone/everyone i work with. i also rely on various contracts for any and all work exchanged. that said i tend to be very easygoing with a lighthearted and humorous disposition on life, after all this is suppose to be fun!
I'm also a full time graphic designer specializing in print and promotion design â business cards, stationary, promotional cards/flyrs, advertising, posters... my design studio creates anything from mild to wild to suit your needs!
Whether you're just starting out or are already established and thinking about a fresh look, shoot me a message with what you're thinking about or looking for and we can take it from there!
Thanks for stopping by, stay sexy and be awesome
