I'm an illustrator currently living in Chicago, IL

Tomorrow I begin my first steps to being a (paid) tea guru (at Argo Tea Cafe). 

So. Excited. and nervous. and excited. 

might be doing a lot of tea-inspired sketching. 


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.

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!
