Hey everyone, 

I am terribly sorry for the lack of updates, but things have been very hard. The oncoming stress of ONCE again being unemployed during the holidays is really getting to me so I am opening commissions. I never have much luck with this sort of thing, but I am trying again. Commissions are open and now I have a page to show what I can offer you.  Please help me get some funds for the Holidays! Any little bit will help me! If you like my stuff and would like one then please email me at jenniferleeg (at) with what you would like. If there is anything you want to ask me about regarding other projects please e-mail me as well. Title the e-mail Holiday Commissions. If you know me then feel free to pass this memo along people you know that would like unique artwork hanging in their homes, because I can also make VERY nice prints for an extra $5. Thank you! :)

Hey all! Been a little while! Recently I lost my job so I was a little inactive having some fun and playing games and stuff. Day one after job loss I was upset for about 2 hours. Seriously, two hours. I got over it and quickly realized "Hey that isn't where I wanna be!" I am trained to work long countless hours, to put out a game. A game that others will play and hopefully enjoy. I will continue my fight to be a character artist, because there is no doubt in my mind that I HAVE the passion for it. It is just finding my style and getting my method that has been a challenge for me. While many peers, have a lot of confidence and assistance I have been working  on my own out of school. The only thing holding me back is my own fear. One day, I hope to soon conquer it. I am hoping my continued weight loss regimen will continue to improve my mental state and my confidence. I will be able to step on that fear and tell it to "shove it!" and when that happens I am sure everyone will be surprised by my true powers. :) My website will be updated to look like a character artist site hopefully in a couple of months. Of course, my illustrations will still be there, but I will add a characters page.
