About EWG





Welcome traveler!

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 we run my commission illustration and design business, Eryck Webb Graphics, from the balmy tropics of Western Pennsylvania.

Lately, I primarily focus on Drawing Request Show, over at http://www.twitch.tv/eryckwebb . Streaming and drawing for people on Twitch is the latest evolution of my commission illustration & design business here at Eryck Webb Graphics. Drawing requests on Twitch has been the most fun, challenging and interactive way to do commissions I've ever seen!

I've been able to draw so many cool things thanks to all the amazing CRew! There's always something new around the corner I haven't drawn yet!

I've been drawing since I was a wee doodler able to hold a crayon to construction paper. Its all I've ever wanted to do! If you told me growing up I'd get to draw all day, every day, for an enthusiastic audience, live via the internet for a living, I'd have laughed and gone back to my comic books and action figures!

Now, in 2021, I've been been in business for myself for 11 years, I've spent over the last 5 of those years streaming and creating for people on Twitch, and am officially 5 self published books deep. Every day is new, unexpected and always changing. I feel like I've barely scratched the surface of this thing. Whatever it is. Lets see where this thing takes me next...

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