Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do you do work for free?
A: Need a piece for a charity event or zine? Feel free to get in contact with me! I do not do personal commission work for free, however.
Q: Your price page says $XXX but you charged $XXX. Why?
A: Prices vary on complexity and the terms.
Q: I really like your work but I can't afford it... Help?
A: Send a commission form with your budget and I will try to work with you the best I can. If you want something for free, refer to question number one again.
Q: What materials do you use?
A: I use watercolor, acrylic, and encaustic paints, ink, charcoal, graphite, markers, and colored pencils for two-dimensional media. I also use digital drawing software. Currently my main ones are Medibang Paint Pro and Krita. Crafts are made of wood, plastic, or fabrics. All media used in a certain work will be listed on its page or pop-up. If I missed something, feel free to ask!
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.
