Emily Cammisais creating Fantasy Illustration
A huge thank you for supporting me so I can continue making art (and pay the bills!) For now I am only using Patreon as a tip jar since I am currently immersed in three jobs (barista, teaching art, and freelancing). The more $1 a month patrons I get, the more likely I can be to kick one of those jobs to the curb and have more time for making new art. A small sum of your kindness can change the course of my future!
About Emily Cammisa
Hello there and welcome to my Patreon page! My name is Emily Cammisa and I'm a freelance illustration artist based in Saratoga Springs, NY with a bachelor's degree in fine art from Skidmore College. I've been doing freelance illustration and graphic design commissions since July 2010. Currently my primary focus is traditional and digital fantasy illustration, character designs, and portraiture. I also love to make beaded jewelry with a fantasy vibe to sell in my Etsy shop. With your pledge to my Patreon account, you can help me achieve my dream of being a successful, self-sustained artist. If you like what I do, I'd love to have your support!
Tools of the trade
I use both traditional and digital mediums. My favorites are graphite and colored pencils, ink pens and markers such as copic, spectrum noir, faber castell, and stabilo, watercolors, and digital art made in Adobe Photoshop. I also have oil paints, acrylics, oil and chalk pastels and a wide variety of other art supplies that I may occasionally dabble with. For my jewelry I use glass, acrylic, and wooden beads along with various other natural and man-made materials. Aside from 2D art and jewelry, I enjoy creative writing, sculpting with polymer clay, sewing, knitting, crochet, and digital photography.
Stylistic inspirations and influences
Long-term goals and aspirations
My long-term goals as an artist are to someday self-publish my own artbooks chock full of original digital and traditional illustrations as well as tutorial books on how to draw and color in various mediums. I also want to create my own webcomic and travel to different arts and crafts fairs, anime, comic, and game conventions to promote and sell my work. I dream of someday being able to completely support myself financially by doing the things I love to do most, eliminating the need to work anywhere else but in the comfort of my own home. With your pledge, all of this can happen!
