Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do you do work for free?

A: Need a piece for a charity event? Feel free to get in contact with me! I do not do commission work for free, however.

Q: What materials do you use?

A: I use watercolor, acrylic, oil, and encaustic paints, ink, charcoal, pencils, and pastels for two-dimensional media. Crafts are made of wood, plastic, or fabrics. All media used in a certain work will be listed on its page.

Q: Why are you called "Caramel Comics"?

A: One of the nicknames I had growing up was Caramel since it sounds similarly to Carmen. When I started getting into illustration, I knew it would be the name to tie into my business.

Q: The name is "Caramel Comics." Where are the comics?

A: One comic is still in the early planning stages, but I have two others that will be launching soon! One is a autobiographical comic with occassional pop culture pages, and the other is a Queer Romance short story set in college - in space! All announcements about comics will be posted on this website and social media.
