About Me

Hi! I'm Artistic Dyslexia. My friends call me AD. I'm a full-time graphic artist, dad & bum.

Wanna know how I got these scars?

I love drawing silly, derpy, goofy things! If I can bring a little happiness and joy to someone's day with my artwork, I feel it's a success.

What software / hardware do I use?
I draw with a Cintiq 13HD and a Surface Pro 2 in Manga Studio 5. I sketch and doodle with a iPad Pro 12.9 in apps such as SketchClub and Amaziograph. I sometimes use Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Adobe Illustrator CS5 to setup files or work with text.

Where do I get my inspiration?
Inspiration in everything is my secret. Whether it's a conversation with a friend, a movie I just watched, a visit to the dentist, spending time with my son, or whatever, there's inspiration to be found. When that doesn't work, a good ole fashion random word generator often helps.

Am I Dyslexic?
No, I am not. I began using this name in a drawing game. At the time, what I saw in my head rarely seemed to show up in the final drawing. It was as though something was lost in translation from my mind to my hand. As I've been drawing, that has changed significantly.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll take some time to look around and possibly support my artwork!
