A little bit about myself. My name is Erica Willey and I have been a professional illustrator for about 5 years now, landing my first published job in 2019 and doing various personal commissions before hand. As an illustrator I specialize in cover art for comics, character portraiture, character design, and fine art. I also participate in various comic con and anime convention artist alleys to sell and promote personal work. The main goal of my career is to be hired by Tor, Penguin Books, Dark Horse, DC, and Marvel as a freelance or full-time artist.
Most of my work is created on a digital platform using Adobe Photoshop, however I do work with oils, watercolor, gouache, ink, and graphite. Regardless of what the medium is, I focus of creating highly rendered paintings with an attention to details. Where subject matter is concerned you’ll find that most of my personal pieces are inspired by Japanese horror.
When I’m not doing art my life is pretty normal. I find that sculpting and felting is a great way to pass the time on a rainy Saturday afternoon and a chance to gain new skills. Living a minimalist and sustainable life style is a very important way of life for me as well. Most of my life choices and daily decisions are based around it. I’ve always told myself that if art didn’t work out in my favor, then a career in sustainable fashion would be my next step.
If considered for a possible job opportunity I will do what it takes to get the job done. I’m open to learning new skills if it is required and will put forth my very best to learn quickly and efficiently.
I want to thank you for taking the time to read over my bio and profile, and wish you the best on all you endeavors.
