Are you for hire/can you illustrate something for me?

  • Yes I can! Just send me a message or email me about what you are looking to do and I’ll see if I can take on your project. If not, I’ll recommend you to another illustrator that I know that would be great for your project!

Are you taking commissions?

  • Yes I am! Just email me with your idea and I’ll see if it is something that I can do!

Do you sell original or small edition work?

  • Yes I do! If you would like to buy an original, a signed print, or a product of my work that you cant buy off my store; contact me at nelsoart@gmail.com. I will be more than willing to make something work out!

What can you make/do?

  • Well, a lot. But I mostly stick to illustrations, comics, type/layout design, and Logos with a more vintage hand drawn feel. When I get more space, I’ll pick up painting again and do more small scale sculptures.

What is your dream job?

  • When I was a kid I wanted to be a mad scientist. But due to a lack of funds, a secret lab and me not wanting to get a PhD in a science field; being an Illustrator was the next best option in my opinion.

What’s your favorite thing to draw with?

  • Well for drawings,
    • I usually use a mechanical 5mm pencil with either HB, blue, or red lead. Otherwise I use blue, HB, or F pencils.
    • Staedtler Mars eraser or Pentel’s hi-polymer erasers .
    • A middle spectrum grey and red marker, Copic or Prismacolor
    • Brush pens, the Pentel Pocket Brush is a good one to start with.
  • For inking,
    • It all depends on what I am working on and I want the piece to feel like. I use Speedball super black ink, with either a Utrecht sumi brush, and nibs. I have a Pentel brush pen that I use often especially when I’m on the go and microns ‘cuz I’m basic. For whiting out mistakes I use Deleter White #2 and Uni Posca the fine one (0.7mm)
  • Hand lettering
    • I like to use a Rotring artpen EF for comic lettering if I do it by hand.
