“Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.”
– Song of Solomon 8:6
Hey there everybody! I am Anthony Delaney, and this here is AyeDee Studio.com (duh). I’m the artist that created all of the artwork that can be found here!
Art is a full time endeavor for me, both in my day job and as an artist burning the midnight oil. During the day, I run a printing company that caters to artists and creators, and helps them get their artistic creations out to the world. Seeing the work that they do inspires me tremendously to want to actually do something with myself and the art I make. I always tell everyone I sacrifice my social life to make this happen, and man, is that statement ever true. If I’m not working, I’m usually…working. On art. Or something.
I’ve been drawing and and staying creative since i was in the 3rd grade. It pretty much started when I used to make crappy comic books with an old school chum and handed them out to our classmates. It was more of an escape for me, since I had a bit of a not-so-great childhood. But hey, we all have, right? That’s since evolved into my own self-publishing effort known as Fate: Into the Lungs of Hell, which deals with literally having to go through Hell to be with the one you love. I hope to have it out here sooner than later.
My inspiration for what I create comes primarily from the morbid and terrible things that happen in the world. I’ve been exposed to quite a bit of it growing up, and it is reflected in my artwork. This piece here, “An Irrational Thought” is about depression and how it can turn into a monster and ultimately consume you. It’s an outlet for emotion, as well as a depiction of what I’m sure many of us go through. I have also created the Loudest Whispers Collection, which focuses on the hurt and tragedy that follows children who grew up in broken homes. Not all of my artwork follows such terrible things, but has roots in the morbid and macabre. For instance, I have a collection of artwork inspired by Tim Burton, and also plenty of fan art and original concepts.
I sell my artwork online here, and am often found at local art walks, conventions and art shows across Arizona and it’s neighboring states. I’m hoping to expand my reach, and get in front of many more faces across the country. I am thankful and grateful to each and every supporter and fan, who have all allowed me to do what I love for a living…or at least to moonlight doing it!
I love all kinds of music, and my favorite bands are Ween, Rammstein, Ghost, and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers. Plus, like a bajillion more. I’m a music snob. If I’m not creating or working, I don’t really know how to bide my time. Usually, I’ll just end up sleeping, or rarely visiting friends and family. I always love to make everyone smile, and try to do what I can to help my fellow man or wo-man. I love food (I’m fat), and good movies. Now before this turns into some eHarmony profile or something, I just want to thank you for taking the time to even read this. Please take a look at my work in my gallery, or if you want me to create something for you, I am always accepting commissions. If you see something you like, you can pick it up at my official store! I keep it updated the best I can. If you’d like to keep in touch, I’m on Facebook and Instagram as well!
Peace and Love,
