| Posted under Finished Pieces

Been a while since I posted here! It’s been a very busy past few months for me, as my kids finished school and then had summer vacation. I’m getting back to the grind now and creating lots of new art. While we traveled during summer break, I took my watercolors along to do a bit […]

When I first got interested in recording my coloring sessions, I went looking for tips and tricks on how to setup cameras to record working space, etc, and really couldn’t find much on the topic. So I thought I’d share […]

| Posted under Finished Pieces, Shop Updates

I LOVED Scooby Doo as a kid, and it’s one of those cartoons that my hubby and I introduced to our own kids as a cherished piece of our childhood–a right of passage kind of thing, like Star Wars. And Duck Tales. But I digress! Had a lot of fun working on this colorful set […]

My most recent Sailor Moon piece is my largest Copic marker piece to date, and I’m really pleased with how she turned out. Here’s some of the behind-the-scenes thinking that went into creating her.

VideoFighting Evil by Moonlight – Part 2

I colored Sailor Moon in part 1. Now I’ll finish up by coloring a pretty night sky with a glowing full moon behind her. After the video finished, I added a few more night sky details: I used my white gel pen to add some stars of different sizes. On the largest stars and on […]

PostNew Site Design

| Posted under Studio Notes

So, GenevieveKay.com has needed an update BADLY for a long time now. It’s pretty embarrassing when you’re a web designer and your personal site looks like crap, but on the other hand, when are you supposed to work on your own site when you’re busy making other peoples’ websites pretty? I just finished up a […]

Art SetX-(wo)Men Marker Card Set

I grew up on X-Men comic books in the 90s. Andy Kubert is still one of my art heroes, and was a big influence when I was just getting into the comic book style of drawing. So drawing this set was like revisiting my fondest middle and high school memories, and reliving some of my […]
