Artist Spotlight: Xera Britt

I’m a self-taught artist who started my journey sketching Pokemon. When I was little, I had a whole wall pasted with vague figures of the first 151 Pokemon, though sadly enough nothing remains of my gallery. In the meantime, I’ve steadily worked to get better at my sketch work, making landscapes, character studies and fanart–even dabbling in clay sculpting and painting (mixed results). My biggest inspiration has to be my friends and all the artists I see on the internet. Everyday I scroll through amazing art pieces, and I say to myself, “I want to make stuff like that!”
