Welcome to my blog! My name is Ryen, and I am a lettings administrator by day and aspirational illustrator by night. I am giving it 100 consecutive days of drawing in an effort to build my illustration skills. My goal is to begin illustrating a graphic novel (and eventually self publish it) in collaboration with my husband, Damian Huntley, for his urban fantasy series, Histories of the Void Garden (Check out his blog!  I guest post here also about marketing and how we are progressing with self publishing) .

My background is in oil painting so I’m trying to re-train through self-education to beef up my anatomy and composition skills, in addition to learning how to paint digitally. Here, I catalogue my process along with any progress I’m making, any new discoveries and what is working for me.

If you’d like to get in touch, see my contact page or any of my social media outlets. Thanks for visiting!
