Please welcome Jessica von Braun to A-Kon 28! Jessica von Braun is a Mixed Media Artist, traditional and digital painter, photo-manipulation // photo collage illustrator, sketch artist and collector of pretty dresses. She is mixed media both when working traditionally and digitally. Most of her digital illustrations are digital paintings paired with photo-manipulation and/or photo-collages (made with either personal photos, stock or work that is in the public domain). Most pieces include all of the above techniques combined for a finished piece of artwork. Her traditional pieces vary in medium, crayon, colored pencil, watercolor, ink and acrylic. Most of her traditional pieces include all of these mediums. Born and raised in San Diego, CA she now resides in Fort Worth, TX. Her work is sometimes cute and and sometimes melancholy, sometimes both. Her pinup work is published by Image comics (Moriarty hardcover, Red City issue #3) and Action Lab (Zombie Tramp issue #4). She is the cover artist for The Greystone Valley Series (Grey Gecko Press) and Extra Mojo (Hidden Charms Press). She has published shirts and posters for The Stan Lee Foundation as well as poster art for performer mc chris, illustration work for Doom Ranch 5000 and is a regular designer for Chibi Essence. Her illustrated story starter book titled 'The Dreams of the Invisible Girl', authored by Chuck Huber, was published with Hound Comics this past year. She is also a resident artist at the PoP Gallery, located in Disney Springs (formerly Downtown Disney) in Orlando. She used to think that if you rode in a hot air balloon you could catch clouds in a jar, but you can't. When she was a child she aspired to be a tree frog and would hop around her house with olives on her fingers. Her etsy: www.solocosmo.etsy.com #AKON28 #AKONSQUAD
