Hello, and welcome 💗
An introduction to everything JENBARTEL.CLUB 🌈✨
Hi everyone! If you aren’t already familiar with me and/or my work, allow me to take a moment to introduce myself. I’m Jen, an Eisner Award winning comic artist and illustrator, primarily known for my covers on titles like Wonder Woman and She-Hulk. I began my freelance art career back in 2016, and never imagined at the time that I’d be here today—my only goal back then was to get to a place where I could quit my day job and make enough of a living to not have to go back to it. Within just a few months, I had built up a solid list of clients and managed to land some exciting opportunities that cemented my path. It wasn’t long before many aspiring artists began to reach out to me for career advice and industry questions, and I’ve always done my best to answer every email, but it became a challenge to get back to everyone. So, in an effort to help other artists achieve their career goals, I’d made it a habit to share as much insight and information as I could publicly.
However, over the last few years my main social media accounts have grown to difficult-to-manage sizes, and the personal interactions I was able to have with fellow creatives and fans alike have become increasingly rare. On top of that, it’s near-impossible to find any kind of archive of resource posts I’ve made over the years (despite some awesome folks going to great lengths to create everything from twitter moments to google spreadsheets of them!). So I decided to create JENBARTEL.CLUB 🌈✨ to have a dedicated, organized area for everything from tutorials to Q&As to wip/sketch shares to final art process posts. My goal is not only to share weekly updates with you, but to also create a community space where we can actually chat and get to know each other.

Even outside of Members-Only posts, I’ll be regularly posting inside looks at what I’m working on, along with process videos, brushes, and step-by-step walkthroughs. Buuuut, for Club Members, I’ll finally be sharing some behind-the-scenes looks at that FF7 Artbook I’ve been working on for uh… forever, now—which means… there will be spice 🔥. All Access/Founding Members will also be entered in a monthly raffle to win a piece of original art by yours truly that I’ll be mailing directly to each winner, along with a surprise gift. 🤫💝 Last but not least, I’ve been I’ve been working on a ton of projects that I can’t wait to share with you all. Thanks so much for sticking with me all this time. 🙏🏼💖
