My name is Evan D. Sears, but I go by Evy Shmurda as an alias for my artwork. I am based in Chicago, Illinois, USA which is becoming a major home to many groundbreaking artists (such as myself). I grew up in a small town in the southern United States and spent most of my free time drawing Anime and Manga based illustrations.
I lost my drive to draw as I grew up until recently when I took to making digital illustrations. My main focus in designing lately has been to promote small, local drag queens in the area and recreate some of their best looks. When I'm designing portraits, I always exaggerate features that I find interesting and try my best to include the most vibrant and bold color combinations.
My goal in life is to keep creating art that is thought-provoking and will make people smile even just for a moment, so they can see there is beauty and love in this sometimes dark and dismal world.
