I attended Megacon (An Orlando Comic Book Convention) this past spring and I showed my portfolio to alot of different artist. In the end I decided that if I was going to be a professional illustrator I needed to take my artwork to the next level. So after Megacon I decided to push my artistic abilities. And I came up with this illustration that I call "Epic Volleyball Jam". I posted it on my deviantart page http://andrewjpierce.deviantart.com/#/d3jdomh So if you are on deviantart.com look me up. But this is just the beginning of me pushing myself creatively I will continue to grow and create awesome images.
Hey whats up everyone. Just wanted to break the ice off my new blog by introducing myself. My name is Andrew J. Pierce and I am an illustrator. The purpose of this blog is to display previews of artwork in progress as well as finished illustrations. I also wanted you to be able to follow me as I turn my passion for illustration into a carreer. Currently I work at a hotel to pay my bills in Daytona Beach. But it has always been a dream of mine to make a living off of art. I am currently going to school at Daytona State College for Graphic Design. I have to finish one class and I will finally have an A.S. Degree. Since I was a child I have always loved comic book art and drawing so it just seems proper to turn this dream into a career. Well I think that intro is good enough. Next post well have some artwork in it.
