artist for hire

artist for hire Osa Naomi

Specialties: I am a cartoonist and 2d illustrator. I consider myself a jack of all trades when it comes to digital art, but for traditional art, I specialize in traditional inking, especially for comics.

Style / Genre: Flexible! My art style can fit in a broad range of genre, but personally I like fantasy the most.

Contact info: I can be contacted through bidadari.osanaomi@gmail.com

Page rate for commissions: You can check them over here on my art Twitter!

Rate for Prints of original work: I’m currently not selling any prints, and even when I do sell them, it’s for cons and not online. Sorry!

Current affiliations: Not part of any

Previous work: You can find most of my artwork in my Twitter or Instagram account. For my comics, you can read them over at my portfolio site and download them on gumroad.

Current projects: I am currently working on a 24-page romcom comic featuring Godzilla and other kaiju as the main characters. It’s… not your typical romcom, but I put a lot of heart into it, so please look forward to it! I’m halfway done pencilling the comic and it should be done early next year. I also want to mention a webcomic that I am part of the artist team for, Rosana! It is an Indonesian superhero sci-fi comic written by Jessica Ginting, and I have the honor of being the assistant inker and background artist.

What was your first project that made you feel like a real artist and how did you get it? The aforementioned Rosana, which is my first paying gig. When I first saw Jessica’s call for Indonesian cartoonists, as an Indonesian artist, I knew that I want to be part of the project. I contacted her and here I am now!

What is your primary inspiration when creating art? My inspiration comes from comics and video games, to ancient mythology, to the flowers and small lizards I find in my walk to the park, resulting in a wide variety of interest and artwork. As I said before, I’m flexible with what I can draw, and by extension, the inspiration I take!

What other artists do you use to learn technique? For inking, I like to look at older superhero comics and newspaper strips. I especially like Mike Mignola and Walt Kelly’s work, and I’d like to think I have a lot of influence from their art style. I’m also a fan of Urasawa Naoki and ONE, both for their art styles and storytelling. For digital illustrations, I follow a lot of  artists in social media, and beyond enjoying their art I always take the time to analyse what exactly I like about them and how to incorporate it into my own drawings.

Where would you like to see yourself in five years with your art? Working a full time art/design job in children’s publishing, or graphic novel publishing.

What would your dream project be? To be honest, most of my comic work are short stories and I’ve never had much interest in creating longer stories that span multiple chapters, so I’m not sure! But then again, that might change in the future. I guess for now my dream is to just be in more collaborative projects. I think I work best in a team.

Q) When the zombies take over the world where will you be? Ill probably just hide out somewhere with a bunch of food and water… But if I can find someone to fight zombies with, then I’ll definitely go with them.

Q ) How do you identify Jedi, lesbian,   Ninja, gay, vampire, bisexual, were-wolf, transgender,  pirate, asexual,  fairy, aromantic, sith, intersex,  Spartan, non-binary, wizard, genderfluid,  queer,  …?  ? There are some interesting options here… I’ll keep it simple and just say lesbian.

Q) What piece of art, be it in the form of music, a,book, a film or picture, do you think people must experience before they die? Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. No doubt about it.

Q) Give one fact that most people would not believe about you? Maybe the fact that I used to catch and pin insects? Not that my love for entomology was ever a secret… I dunno! I’d like to think that I’m a pretty straightforward and predictable person.
