If you are new to Art Track, you may be wondering "What is Art Track?"
Art Track is the name of all the great programming that we do in Artist's Alley.
Each year we select artists to spotlight. Each Featured Artist will host art themed panels where you can benefit from their knowledge and experience on topics ranging from getting published to colorization and more.
For the past few years Artist's Alley has proudly carried out Artist's Alley Trading Cards, an activity for artists to trade samples of their art in a business card sized 3.5 in x 2 in format with each other. This activity is limited to artists.
There are more new and upcoming events in the works besides this that may allow different levels of participation for both artists and attendees.
I have been drawing most of my life, evolving through mixed media as the years go on. In 2013, I started teaching myself how to use a Wacom tablet. During my college years, I created the name Protojekt (a combined word of Prototype and the German word for Project).
My most iconic works are the anime tattoo designs, easily found with a Google search. These are the first of my long-standing projects; their popularity has gone international amongst fans.
I strive to create new ideas, construct prototypes, and develop them into projects. I have no investments in success or failure, only completion, satisfaction and improvment without stagnating.

Six years ago, in 2008, on an impulse and an instinct, I quit the office job that was crushing my soul and started my own sewing business, Nightengale Needles.
Six years later, I have the good fortune and tenacity that lets me make my passion my livelihood; Nightengale Needles remains my full-time job. I've even been able to add my fiancé Trey to the mix as my office manager and number-cruncher. I sell my fleecy goods and geekery at anime, gaming, pony, and furry conventions from Boston to Atlanta, all up and down the Eastern side of the USA.
I make a particular focus on offering PRIDE themed items, because some people, myself among them, need more support and hugs when facing the world than others.
