Hello there! Rachel Perciphone is an illustrator from a small town living in a bigger city. She has won a number of awards and exhibited in various shows, including being selected as one of the artists featured in the Society of Illustrators’ Student Exhibition in 2014. She graduated from Moore College of Art & Design and works at a comic book publisher while she pursues freelance opportunities. You can meet her in person at various comic conventions
Rachel works primarily digitally with a Wacom tablet in Photoshop but is fully capable with oils and acrylic paint as well. She enjoys rendering pencil/ink drawings and bringing them into the digital realm for coloring and painting. Regardless of what medium the completed piece is, digital and traditional methods go hand in hand with her work and her process remains the same with each. She particularly excels at drawing figures (especially enjoying female pinups!) and pays great attention to detail, spending a lot of time studying references from life and portraying a variety of bodies and faces. Her paintings are colorful, often playing with complementary colors and unique lighting situations (think neon!). She loves to give her work and characters a ‘rock-n-roll’ edgy aesthetic whenever she has the opportunity.
A primary goal of hers is to create a collection of work over time featuring powerful men and women and a range of body types, costumes and physical appearances to promote body positivity and female empowerment.
Feel free to contact me if you are interested in my work.
