ABOUT ERYCK WEBB


I am Eryck Webb. I am happily married to my better half, Kiwii who helps me keep the reigns on our wiley little chihuahua boy, Chico! Together, under the command of the Hat, we run my commission illustration and design business, Eryck Webb Graphics. The EWG mill cranks along at full tilt weekdays here in the balmy tropics of Western Pennsylvania.

Now, in 2022, I've been been in business for myself for 12 years, I've spent over the last 6 of those years streaming and creating for people on Twitch (  http://www.twitch.tv/eryckdrawz ), continuing to be primarily a commission artist and am officially 7 self published books deep. Every day is new, unexpected and always changing. I feel like I've barely scratched the surface of this artistic journey/ career thing. Lets see where it leads me next...

Thank you to every follower and supporter that makes this drawing dream a reality!



Artistic Journey Highlights

Pre 2003
  • Drawing And Filling Sketchbooks - Throughout my schooling, and even as I pursued a career in graphic design, I was drawing every chance I had and filling sketchbooks. I've been drawing since I could hold a crayon to construction paper as a kid you could say. I recall starting to take it a bit more seriously and try to really improve at it in 3rd grade. I filled about one sketchbook a year after that.
2003
  • Commission Character Art - Began doing the occasional character art commission through eBay auctions and via DeviantArt for extra beer and pizza money during college. 
  • Worked mostly traditional, and even shipped art to customers. Drew everything with traditional pencils and ink pens. Colored pieces in Photoshop.
2006
  • Graphic designer at advertising firm - Primarily worked on graphic design for print posters, ads, books, brochures and branding.  

2009

  • December 11th 2009 -  Launched Eryck Webb Graphics. A commission based business primarily focusing on character art and graphic design creative work.
  • 'Bump On A Log' - Inhouse webcomic Strip. My first webcomic. Discontinued 2012
2010 
  • 'Possessed' - Webcomic. Written/ Created by Bryan Burke first webcomic job as EWG.
I also credit this gig as the push to go 100% digital in my work. I was never 100% happy with my traditional inking ability, so I started inking digital, and began sketching digitally too. Ironically years later, improving at inking digitally helped me revisit inking traditionally and get much better/ confident at it.

2011
