FEATURED ARTIST: Fluffy Butt Arts (@fluffybuttarts)

Do you like the new Wasabizilla art from the past couple of years?  That’s the talent work of Brittani Crawford aka “Fluffy Butt Arts“.

Brittani is an artist, animator, and Corgi enthusiast based out of Jacksonville, Florida.  She earned her BFA at Kansas City Art Institute after receiving world class instruction in a variety of visual arts, including 2D hand-drawn animation, graphic design, and painting.  She considers herself a jack-of-all-trades and in the years since completing university has undertaken projects ranging from detailed sculpture, to costuming, painting, and video game concept art.  She also has a passion for teaching and currently instructs adult painting classes, though she also spent 2 years overseas in Japan, teaching English to children.

Ms. Crawford has been very active in the local artistic community, serving as an invitational artist at GAAM (where she unveiled a 6-foot tall Charizard statue last year!). Her art inspirations pull heavily from the styles of her favorite anime and video games, especially the Final Fantasy series, Akihiko Yoshida, and the Dragon Age series. She considers hobby and career to be one and the same and will happily discuss chiarascuro techniques with the same passion as Bioware love interests (though Ms. Crawford will not be swayed from the mind that the only correct choices are Alistair and Fenris).

She will be set up again in Artist Alley at WasabiCon this year – so swing by and say hi!
