[Above: Pemphredo by Bob Suicide]

“I named her Pemphredo after the protectors of the Gorgons who all shared an eye. Her name can translate to “she who shows the way” based on her role in Perseus’ story or more commonly – and literally – “alarm.” Although, they’re generally depicted as being old, Hesiod said that Pemphredo in particular was beautiful. And, they’re known for being grey in color. So, I think it’s a pretty good fit.”

“I like to start by doing the facial features. Mostly eyes ’cause they’re my favorite.”

“I use my pinky and pointer finger for shading…and sometimes a bit of rolled up toilet paper wrapped around a pencil for the little stuff.”

“I’ve learned from Cherry Rae that my eraser is my best friend. I lightly sketch out an idea so that it doesn’t indent the paper when I change my mind…I always change my mind. And I like small, intricate details, like the tiny “engravings” on the diadem.”

Artist/SG Name: Bob Suicide…but I’ve always signed my art Willow Redfern (it’s from an old book series I read as a kid).

Mission Statement: I started out copying things I saw in video game magazines – art that I wanted to be able to draw. It was mostly heroines and scantily clad princess. I’ve always been attracted to the aesthetic of the female form. And, over time, there came a point where I could replicate what I was looking at with relative accuracy. But it was all on wrinkled, warped binder paper with generic #2 pencils. 



Then in high school, I was surprised by a friend’s mother who bought out the entire art store (no hyperbole here – it was a small town), gift wrapped it, and left it in the school’s girls restroom for me to find. 



After that, I started pulling headshots from girly magazines and drawing as many faces as I could. (It’s still my go-to doodle when I’m just pushing a random pen on random paper.) 



I’m still using everything she got me. Now the new frontier is learning to draw something that I can’t see – making up more than what’s in front of me. I’m using a lot of Greek/Roman mythology for inspiration.



Medium: A blank piece of paper and a pencil.



Aesthetic: Beauty…with a little bit of beast.



Notable Achievements: My mom says I’m cool.



Why We Should Care: It’s important to encourage the artist in everyone. I just picked up a pencil one day and had people who supported my habit. So if you love art and want to make your own, there’s no reason why you can’t pick up a pencil and draw on any flat surface you can find. I support you! If I can do it, anyone can.



I Want Me Some: I don’t have a set place where I’m selling my doodles. But, I’d be happy to take an offer on a piece or a commission when I can if you’re interested. Feel free to message me and let me know what you’re in the market for.
