Doodlewash - Comic Page by Lucy Loo Wales

 I grew up within an artsy family; my mother always painting and my grandfather was a woodworker.  I always knew I wanted to do something with art, but I didn’t know what until 9th grade in high school when my teacher handed me “V for Vendetta” and I knew that making comics was what I had to do for the rest of my life.

I would love to be that unusual artist that brings watercolors into my comics, so I do a lot of watercolors on my spare time when I have it.  

I do whatever my hand tells me to and most of the time I don’t even realize what I am painting until I look at the final image.  

Doodlewash by Lucy Loo WalesI enjoy this kind of process because I find it gives me more freedom from my brain.  Sometimes I will sketch out what I want to draw, but most of the polychromatic pieces I just go for it; brush to blank paper.  

My favorite materials are inks and liquid acrylics, which are both sort of like watercolors.  Currently, I am attending Maine College of Art to get my Illustration degree to get the career of my dreams and my watercolors have helped me where I get now. I’m also available for commissions, so feel free to contact me!
