EVE VENTRUE’s calling as an artist manifested itself when she was a child, spending every waking moment drawing pictures of horses and tacking them up all over her home. She later developed a fascination for Manga art and began reproducing her favorites from Dragon Ball Z and Sailor Moon. As she blossomed into her teenage years, she grew a love of the male figure and began experimenting with such subjects in pen and ink, charcoal, oil paints and pastels. Finally, a revelation: Eve discovered the wonders and possibilities of digital painting.
Saving her money and eventually buying a second-hand pen tablet, Eve began experimenting in digital art, having nothing to assist her in mastering the programs she was attempting to use other than digital tutorials written in a language she didn’t quite understand. Displaying a gritty determination, Eve soldiered on began producing incredible artwork. Only now, having mastered her medium, is her imagination given full wing.
Eve’s goal is to continue to develop as an artist and see her art in game and film productions. She has recently written a fantasy book called: Die VENATOR Legende, which she hopes to publish soon.

JUSTINE MARIE HEDMAN I live in Vermont with my family. Like any good wife, I love my husband dearly and adore my kids, I also have a spunky kitten and the greatest parents and brothers in the world. Because of my family I get to follow my dreams every day, and for that, I can not thank them enough. I have one children’s book in the process of being published, with three more in different phases of completion. I also have a sci-fi novella, three romance novels, and a non-fiction autobiography in the works. I’ve also been collecting short stories and poems that one day I may compile into a publication or two, when the time is right. But there is nothing like my beloved Fantasy Series, the work of my heart, The Trials of Ephira.

    Great blog! I just have a question: do you use sites like, cafepress. com, fiverr? They could be a good way to promote your works and to help “remove” stupidity in the streets like headlines on t-shirts, fridge-magnets, cups, etc: My Boyfriend kisses Better Than Yours, FBI – female body inspector, etc. Not everything we see and think of should be about sex, right? It would be much better if there were more nice pictures of mythical creatures, good thoughts, poems from fantasy genre, etc? I’m allanbard there, I use some of my illustrations, thoughts, poems from my books (like: One can fight money only with money, Even in the hottest fire there’s a bit of water, etc). Best wishes! Let the wonderful noise of the sea always sounds in your ears! (a greeting of the water dragons’hunters – my Tale Of The Rock Pieces)..

      Hi Allan

      Yep, most of us use Zazzle as well. Mine is Rengar. I think Carol’s is: Empress. I take a boxfull of Zazzle stuff with me to shows usually. I don’t use Cafepress as I didn’t like the product too much.
