CASSANDRA CALIN
COMIC ART, DESIGN & ILLUSTRATION FAQ

1. Can I use your artwork for an article/blog post/my profile picture/etc.?

As long as it is not for commercial use, you have my permission. All I ask is to not edit the original artwork and to include a link to (any of) my social media sites in the description. Please don’t crop out my signature, don’t sell and/or claim my work as your own and don’t edit and/or translate the text without asking for my permission first.

2. What tools do you use for your comics?

My comics are hand drawn using Pigma Micron Pens (005 and 01) and a Sharpie permanent marker with Chisel Tip. My sketchbook is a Canson XL Mix Media Pad.

3. For your digital work, what tablet/brushes/program do you use?

Tablet: Wacom Intuos Pro Pen & Touch (small)

Program: Photoshop CS6

Brushes: Photoshop’s default round brush & MH 8B brushes

4. Can you draw me/my friend/my cat/etc.?

I'm currently available for freelance work and commissions only.

5. Can I get a tattoo of your artwork?

Sure! Please send me a picture when it's done - I’d love to see it!

6. How long does it take you to draw a comic?

With all process included (brainstorming ideas, sketching, inking, editing in Photoshop), I would say around 2 to 4 hours. It depends on how detailed it is and how much hair I have to draw, ha.

7. Do you have a book with your comics?

Not yet, but it's a project I'll be working on in the near future!

8. What inspires you and your comics? Where do you get your ideas from?

The majority of my ideas are, in fact, my own experiences and events that actually occured. I tend to write them in a notebook and then pick whichever ones I find particularly funny.

9. I want to buy something from your Society6 store but the drawing I like is not available for sale. Can you add it?

Let me know which drawing you're referring to and what product(s) you're interested in and I'll make sure to post it ASAP. It is possible that I haven't added that particular drawing for various reasons (such as it being too small to work with). If that's the case, I'll let you know.

10. Any comic translations available?

French & Romanian translations coming soon! If you want to create a page with translations in your language, please make sure to contact me via email beforehand - cassiecalin@gmail.com

11. What languages do you speak?

I speak English, Romanian and French.

12. Besides art, what else do you do?

Well...
