Hi! I'm Xed Blankenship (pronounced "Zed"), an illustrator and fine artist currently living in Georgia (USA). I tend towards digital illustration and fine arts work using primarily recycled materials. My general artistic interests lie in cartoons, miniatures, and set design. Please take a look around, and if you like my stuff, follow me on one of my social media platforms to stay updated on what I'm up to-- they're all listed in the "Contact" tab above!
My current project, Roach Town, is an exploration into miniatures, set design, and world building in a cardboard environment. It's a series about the historic section of an imaginary city called (you guessed it!) Roach Town, which is a town where cockroaches, extraplanar beings, and other ookie things that humans don't want in their towns went to live. The project has three parts: miniature cardboard building models of the town and drawings based off of them, a life-size set of the interior of Town Hall, and a series of narrative slides which depict important events in the town's history, from founding to a recent court case. Photos of Roach Town and progress shots can be found in the "Fine Arts" tab above.
