I'm an illustrator currently living in Chicago, IL
For some reason i’m feeling a bit nostalgic for volleyball. I played this and basketball until 10th grade, before I moved to a different state and school (which had an actual art program, so I dropped sports altogether). Every once in a while I wish I had a way to play this again.

Art Prints by Kris Easler | Society6

I’ve added some new prints to the shop! 

goodness it’s been a while since i’ve been able to post any personal work. most of the projects i’ve been working on i can’t show yet, and I miss getting feedback and encouragement from you guys. Wolfsheep would require a wolfshepherdess just as awesome as they would be. I call her “Big Horn.”Back to work! 

Excited to find out that I’m one of the winners for Applied Arts Magazine’s 2014 Student Competition!! Big thanks to Ryan Sanchez who was my professor/art director for that particular illustration, and to my fellow classmates who are also on the list!

whenever I get a new sketchbook, I always have to put something epic as the first sketch (and I absolutely can’t draw anything on the first page. too much pressure) - so here’s my “first sketchbook sketch” involving a Viking/Mongol girl and an osprey.
Commissions now open! First time ever! Woo!


Alright, I’ve never done this before but I need the money, haha.
I’m opening up commissions. I’m completely new to this so if I break some sort of standard commissioning rule let me know.

Reblog! in case anyone wants me to draw something for them…

So, my cousin’s getting married! Woot! This is a portrait I did for their invitation - I think she might want me to change the color of her shirt and I’ll clean up the bottom a bit but otherwise it’s good :) They’re such an adorable couple and I can’t wait to go to their wedding this fall!

why not :) especially since the art’s been scarce lately (i’m dealing with internship stuff, trying to find a new apartment, ALL of the out-of-town guests, trying to get to a wedding at the end of the month, and getting a new kitten in a week. I’m a bit swamped.)
