Hello! My name is Vanessa Ellis. I’m a freelance illustrator from the US, now living in London after getting married. I’m not allowed to work right now (hopefully this will change by the end of the month), but I have so many personal projects to keep me busy while I wait. Here’s a bit of what I’m working on right now:
- Sketch Dailies: This Twitter account gives a new drawing prompt every day. I have fallen behind due to preparations for the next stage of my visa and other projects, but this has been getting me back into the habit of drawing every day.
- Fan Art: Before I moved, I had started on a series of drawings of awesome female characters from my childood, and now I’m getting back to that. Currently I’m working on a drawing of Lt. Uhura from Star Trek to add to this collection!
- Collaborations with my husband: We’re working together on a fan comic for one of our favourite cartoons, the tragically short-lived Batman Beyond spinoff The Zeta Project.
There’s more to come. In fact, I’m getting ready to sign off and get back to work on a few things. Keep an eye on this blog for more updates!
