Sometimes I don’t have a process post and I just want to share a new artwork. This was a quick illustration made in the same vein as my Liquify skull used for my logo. “Grind” is inspired by my experience with TMJ and teeth grinding. I often grind my teeth at night that leaves my … More “Grind” Digital Illustration
Continuing my side project of updating some favorite older works to new digital sketches, I returned to this goodie. This sketch was done several years back (2015?) when I was working on a hashtag project. I think it was 100 days project. I definitely did not get to 100 days of any sketching by any … More “Alchemy” Process Post
“Funeral” is an image idea that I keep going back to. It first started as an inktober sketch. I created this inked piece using collage as the base for the drawing. There were a lot of visual issues with the sketch, but I liked the process of making it that I wanted to reattempt it … More “Funeral” Process post

There’s prompts that people can follow or you can do your own thing. This year, I want to challenge myself and follow the prompts and make them … More #Inktober is coming!
Snow Magic Snow Magic was a small artwork I made for an aviary fundraiser in 2017. It sold right away, but it’s one of my favorites. I made a time-lapse video of the process that I’ve shown before, but have now re-edited it with Adobe Spark (loving that program more and more): In the … More From the Archives: Snow Magic

I felt that if I could produce quick paintings I would level up immensely and become a speedy, efficient painter able to whip out art projects left and right. If time managment could be personified into a … More “Dreams of Spring” tiny gouache painting process
One of the activities that I was distracted by this summer was creating a One Week Portrait, hosted by Paintable. I saw on facebook that they were doing a free class/workshop and thought, “What fun!” and enrolled. I did four out of five of the days, but I learned a lot and have bookmarked Paintable … More One Week Portrait
I did something outside of my usual paintings: I made a fanart for a gallery show. This piece was done for La Bodega’s Disney theme show. I picked Maleficent because I’ve always liked her character as a kid (so scary!) and wanted to see if I could play with the design. A lot of the … More “Maleficent” Painting Process
“Miasma” paint progress You’ll remember this painting hinted in my previous posts. This mini painting was an acryla gouache practice piece that got a little to dragged out and complicated. BUT! I am glad I still pursued it, because I ended up with some resolutions that I wasn’t planning on and loved it. This was … More Finish What You Started Part 3

In the meantime, I have finally launched my store! You can purchase older orginal paintings and … More Megan Frau Store Launch!
