Latest in my favorite art from DA. Come back daily for new favorites.
Hey everybody!

Now, the title of this article is a bit misleading I suppose, but still relevant. I've never really left, but I haven't been as active community-wise, updates, etc. Though i have been posting more artwork. 

End result though- I have no truly been around (though i have never stopped reading comments.)

Last time i updated, it was my 10 year ani here- i meant to come back and do a retrospective--- which I felt was difficult since I have nearly 1,000 images here on DA. Picking the best, and moments proved to be a huge epic cataloging of my time here. I didn't and don't have the time like I used to to devote to something like that. :(

In the upcoming months, my comic, The God Machine will be my everything, along with art directing a few titles AND possibly writing a new title. It's not an easy task to manage a million social media places, all of my work, and then DA.

i miss DA. I really do. I've always enjoyed serious feedback/insights into my work and connecting with everybody. I used to make friends here. Heck, i'm still an avid advocate of DA. 

Now I no longer have a subscription here- which makes it harder to use DA like I used to... [EDIT: Thanks to WanderingTempest for getting me a sub to DA! You rock the cat's socks, sir!] but despite this-- I'm going to try to update with articles I'll be writing for my PRO blog, update on convention signings, God Machine rough cut pages being submitted here over at TheGodMachineComic (or a new location), and things like this. This is going to be my attempt. Usually when i make blogs like this, i curse myself and end up not returning for awhile. Hopefully this won't be the case. 

At anyrate, I hope to return soon--and even have some announcements for all of you!

Take care, and hopefully talk soon!

Chandra Free
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
Chandra is the creator the graphic novel series, The God Machine, published by Archaia Entertainment.

Born and bred into captivity of Orlando, Florida, Chandra (pronounced CHAN-drah, like Jackie CHAN) can now be found in her present-day home, blissfully away in the land of New York with her writer boyfriend, Drew Gaska. It is here that she concocts her uniquely abstract and elongated art and comics. Intensely interested in the incorporation of psychology into her art, she focuses on the unconscious and human aspects of her characters. In addition to The God Machine, she has worked as a digital painter on the comic series Sullengrey by Ape Entertainment, and as an illustrator on Jim Henson’s Fraggle Rock by Archaia. She is also a creative director at the guerrilla studio BLAM! Ventures.

On her off time she considers herself an amateur “Foodie”-- looking for the holy grail of coffees, the most savory bowl of Japanese ramen,
the quintessential green tea item, the most mouth-watering sashimi, and the weirdest food she’s never encountered before-- all on the isle’ of Manhattan.

She’s also an avid Venture Brothers fan, a retro video gamer, collector of arty-indy comics, infrequent participant of the “goth” scene, and girl adventurer!

This is very random and probably pretty meaningless but I couldn't help but notice that we have the same name which is rare because not many people have it, just thought I'd mention it
