You probably know that I love drawing and painting animals of all kinds, especially prehistoric and extinct ones. I'm excited to say I'm part of this Kickstarter project, and I'll be doing the American Lion/American Cheetah, and Smilodon playing cards. If you'd like to check it out, see the link below.…

Hi everyone,

Real life has been busy, and the online world has fallen to the wayside, but I've been trying to update here, at least with sketches, and some older art that I feel represents "me" and the work I like to do for myself, as opposed to work for commissions and my 8:30-5 job.

I now have a public Twitter feed for art here: SMBittler_Art. It has my most recent work, some WIPs, snippets of art-related conversations, and so on. Feel free to browse!

My goals for 2013 were just to do art of any kind, and I've done that, at least with sketches and a few finished pieces (though I would still love to do more). My goals for 2014 are to finally learn to use a tablet instead of just coloring with a mouse; try painting light more realistically; try painting with real media as much as possible too; and try some prehistoric creature reconstructions, if only for my own satisfaction. I would love to produce art that matches what I see in my head, or at least paint as well as I can draw, but I still have a long way to go. Never stop learning, right?

I've not been keeping up with notes, so if you have any questions, comments, or you have something that should be brought to my attention, please email me at synnabarinfo(at) Thanks so much, and thanks for your patience as well!

More soon!

Also, thanks for the kind comments on the DD! That was an older piece which I enjoyed doing for a very specific project, the Werewolf Calendar. However, to see more of the kind of work I do for myself, please check out my Pen Sketchbook Gallery!

Thank you for all of your comments, +watches and +favs! I need to catch up and do some watching back... I am really behind in things! You all are so talented! Thank you all for being so kind and supportive!

Also: There is no need to thank me for comments, watches, and +faves! I love your work, and just seeing it is enough. :) I do appreciate all of your kind comments, but I am not on here enough to keep up with everything, so please don't take it personally if I don't reply, comment, or thank you in return!


GENERAL INFO: Please look in my SCRAPS for some unfinished stuff, some older fun stuff, and some more pages from my Pen Sketchbook Project.

TRADES, REQUESTS, CONTESTS, ETC.: Not at the moment, sorry!

REFERENCING OR COLORING MY ART: Sure, go ahead! Just please let me know if you do, and credit me somewhere. Thanks!

TATTOOS OF MY WORK: I am honored if you like my work enough to wear it permanently, and I'd love to see your ink if you do. Please do email me photos!

SPECIAL PROJECTS: I am available for special group projects like portfolios, etc., as long as I am given enough notice. Note me or email me if interested.
