    You will be my inspiration! :)

  55. Roxy says:

  56. Jay says:

    Hello Miss Led, I’ve recently come across your artwork, and I am incredibly impressed! I’m currently in my last year of high-school and plan on pursuing my dream of becoming an illustrator myself. One thing I have to ask, though, is do you use average pencils and drawing paper? How do you keep your lines so crisp and your paper so clean? I struggle with messy lines/paper all the time. I was wondering if there was some trick to keeping artwork smudge-free, especially when your hand accidentally slides across the paper. You’re a great inspiration to me now and I’ll forever look up to you. Keep up the good work!

  57. Mimi Chase says:

    Hi!
    I am such a huge fan of yours, your work is just so lovely! I haven’t seen anything scheduled but, I was wondering if you would ever come to San Diego Comic Con? I would love to purchase a few prints and have them signed. I see you are coming to the US but unfortunately not to the West Coast. Again, I love your artwork so so much, I am a huge fan! Please consider an appearance at SDCC. I’ll promote you, I’ll wear a bikini and hold a sign etc.. hahah!
    Thank you,
    M. Chase

    • missled says:

    Hi Miss Led, just to say I am a huge fan of your work, and if a really good friend hadn’t pointed me in the direction of your work last year, I don’t think I would be doing what I’m doing now, portraiture and hopefully going into a more illustrative direction. Your drawings, paintings and fashion illustrations constantly inspire me to learn more and practice – I love it. I’d like to be added to the mailing list also! All the very best! :-D

  82. Beth says:

    I am currently writing a double page spread on you for my university work. I am wondering how to started out, what degree you studied and how you built up your client base. Would you be able to give me a quote or some tips towards me starting out as a designer. I am doing my degree in design and publishing and have just managed to get some illustration commission work alongside. You have always been one of my favourite illustrators and and tips would be great !

    thank you x

  83. Bec Broomhall says:

    Hi, could I be added to your mailing list – your work is a massive inspiration to me, many thanks!

  84. mbindawina says:

    I don’t even know where I can start praising you from. I have been drawing for the past 20 years, I am a child prodigy and I am now 24. but to see work like yours greatly inspires me, you are my Cristiano Ronaldo or my Leo Messi when it comes to Art. You are a phenomenon, I’ve never had that exposure of an exhibition and attending one of yours would be an honor, it would be like meeting Barack Obama in person, and looking at your resume its so spectacular. I am more into drawing portraits, but hey as an artist I can do anything it would be my pleasure to be employed by you. May God richly bless you, I love you as a fan and I love your work. I would be humbled to see your reply thank you.

  85. Natalia says:

    Greetings miss Led. I’m 17 years old and I’m from Colombia. My dream is to be an artist and have my own galery and expos. If you don’t mind, I’d like to know about your journey to become such a great artist and what were your studies. I’m a fan of your art, and I think that you have such amazing artworks. I’d be very grateful for your answer, and sorry for taking your time, have a nice day :)

  86. Jonathan Bean says:
