Hey, Thanks!

A big slice of gratitude for the folks over at Drawn! and a pleasant Hello! to anyone new coming over to check my stuff out! This is the second time John Martz has written me up, and it's awful nice of him to do it. :) (it was also nice of Sam to submit my site to Drawn...)

Lucky for me, I just updated ciesemier.com (although I've found that sometimes it's necessary to clear the cache in Firefox before the new changes appear) and I'm gettin' serious here about freelancing, so now's the time. :)

I'll be putting up a sweet new piece on Sunday or Monday (it'll be in the February issue of GO!) but I can also now share this B&W piece I did for BITCH magazine-- it was about the role of Jane Eyre character archetypes in literature.
(I don't know about you all, but I do enjoy me some period romances on occasion. It's a break from the asian action movies I usually enjoy watching. Anyone else excited for Chocolate? Eh? Eh?)



I'm not too practiced in B&W (or graphite pencil!), so I think this could maybe have been better. I'm trying to play around with some new media though, so any suggestions appreciated!

Thanks again, guys!

Nice drawing. I like your style, and am one of the people who came here by way of Drawn!

Hi, i too discovered you via drawn, your style has changed sooo much from that drawn post back in 2007.
Your use of colour, and beautiful line work in your current illustrations are just brilliant!

Yep, I'm another person waving hello from Drawn. Amazing work you have! I also think the comment on your style was interesting. I graduated the same time as you but I strongly feel I haven't come anywhere close to a settled style in anything I do. You have a wide and varied range of skills but you're doing a brilliant job of fusing them together and making them work. Guess we all develop at different rates!

Wow, thanks guys! I'm happy you all are enjoying the work! I'll be doing my best to put up some more cool stuff soon. :)
(And Maria-- I'm glad you think so! It's tough trying to pull everything together....I'm still definitely working on it. I took a look at your stuff, and I think you're heading for it too!)
