I decided to leave my well-paying graphic design job to build a serious independent career as an artist. Then it took me 6 months to realize my biggest mistake—that I tend to severe connections and start everything over whenever I’m overwhelmed by personal issues. Splitting my online life into 3 different personas only allowed me to create half-assed products, far from my potential. Now that I’ve decided to merge everything into one, I use only one name all over the internet: franzanth.
In the near future, I’ll be exploring the theme “Legacy” which revolves around visualization of natural history artefacts. My offline fine art projects, tumblr bestiary drawings, and even possibly fan art, will all stem from the same root. I’ll treat the bestiary & fan art drawings as an exercise for my fine art projects—while helping me rebuild a bigger audience at the same time. This way, I would achieve a solid body of work that I could call a complete project.
After losing a steady source of income, I’m still struggling to split my time between working on my art and freelance works. If you want to chain me to the drawing board, hit me up with any idea on how I could feed myself and pay rent without taking too many freelance projects. I’m open for any possibility.
So if you care to reconnect and give me another chance, find me on my accounts below:

I'll try not to disappoint this time.
I'm having a rather important life plan ahead, and I might require some financial boost—although not urgently. Right now, I'm considering to print & ship my existing artworks to save up for a limited time. After this, I won't have the time to take care of future purchases for some time. If you find anything interesting on my gallery, feel free to hit me up and we can talk about it privately.
Coronado 300gsm stipple white fancy paper
$12 - $20
30cm x 35cm (11.8" x 13.8")
Hit me up for smaller sizes - I will have to recalculate everything
SHIPPING & HANDLING
South-East Asia • $8
Worldwide • $10*
*Subject to change, depending on where you exactly live
Alternatively, I'm planning to set up a society6 account, which will probably charge more for the prints and bring me less revenue. But it will require less maintenance & effort from me.
I also may or may not accept some commissions now, depending on my availability and the details of the project. Considering my limited time, I will be extremely picky at choosing commissions to accept.
First of all, hello to the new followers!
Earlier this month, I planned to focus on other non-pokémon projects and tone down all this noktowly business throughout 2014. But you guys successfully changed my mind. So, expect to see more cards in the Major Arcana series in the following weeks!
Spoiler alert: I might get involved in another big pokémon fan-project this summer. Stay tuned for more information!
Friends, I need your opinion now.
My shipments to Finland and the US were successful, and I’m getting more demands to ship my prints worldwide. Right now I’m considering to reprint more of my works.
What I need to know are:
• Which one of my works are you interested in? see here or here.
• What’s your preferred print size?
• How much would you pay for that?
(mind that the cost of worldwide shipping ranges from $5 to $10 from where I live, and the estimated delivery time is 2-3 weeks)
Also, Paypal recently decided to be a bitch and suspended my account for no reason, making it hard for me to receive money from around the world. Considering I don’t need the money at the moment, I think the upcoming prints money can help the victims of the recent Super Typhoon Haiyan. I can still cover the production & shipping costs myself. (I believe the demand isn’t that high anyway)
What do you think of the plan?
I will also drop some of my limited edition prints to be sold there.
Check out Sei's journal to see what we're selling.
*Journal's shamelessly stolen from Sei since I'm too lazy to write muahaha
On a sidenote, check out my newest project, Manakala
I just finished all the artworks and launched it today, so we don't have that much in the gallery yet. One thing I can promise you, though, it's gonna be a puntastic project. For a while, me and some of my friends will draw most of the artwork, but I'm inviting anyone here who might be interested in joining us.
Manakala is also on tumblr, twitter, and facebook
But I need some
• Which ones should I print?
• How many?
• Preferred size?
P.S. I have a Xerneas WIP that I've never posted here. If I could finish it before September, I'm going to print it out as well.
P.P.S. Sei is going to sell Xerneas & Yveltal charms as well. If you happen to be in Jakarta this September, be sure to drop by her table and grab dem adorbs charms.
For the past several days, I have consulted with some people to help me out with my upcoming Major Arcana series (mostly ezeqquiel and ChibiSilverWings). Bringing Major Arcana to the Pokémon world is apparently harder than I thought. I have already figured out most of the cards, but there are a few left that I'm still not sure of. I decided to open the creative process to public, so that you guys can participate in the concept phase. I'm more interested in non-human characters with backstories or in-game events, but I'm excited to see any idea you guys have, nevertheless.
The 22 cards in the upcoming series are:
0 The Fool
1 The Magician
2 The High Priestess
3 The Empress
4 The Emperor
5 The Hierophant
6 The Lovers
7 The Chariot
9 The Hermit
10 Wheel of Fortune
12 The Hanged Man
15 The Devil
16 The Tower
17 The Star
18 The Moon
19 The Sun
21 The World

What are my strong points?
My unique characteristics?
In a site with hundreds of art pieces, how do you find out that a particular artwork is made by me, without even looking at the artist's name?
I'm in the process of making a deck of Major Arcana tarot cards, and I want to make the visual as "Noktowl" as possible. I want to avoid similarities with other artists, whenever possible.
Thank you xoxo
