The Art Squirrel is a blog covering various topics relating to art with an emphasis on digital art.

Who is the author?

My name is Christine Garner. I’m an Illustrator / digital painter learning 3D skills. This blog was created when I decided to document some of my progress and discoveries from 2016 onward. The blog focuses on my continuing journey learning 3D and practicing digital art skills.

I have a website with my artwork at

If you want to get in touch my email is

If you have some news and it is relevant to the sort of thing I’ve written about on the website (go have a look before contacting me) please feel free to contact me and I will decide whether or not to publish anything at my own discretion.

I tend not to reply to things I’m not interested in so if it has been more than 2 weeks I’m not interested. I’m not interested in publishing NFT related things because it is too divisive, I don’t care whether people do it so long as they are not stealing peoples art to do so.

History of the site so far

I used to publish the articles I wrote on Medium, but in July 2020 I decided to move the content to my own website to improve accessibility. I used to get complaints about using Medium and things are more customizable on a proper website anyway.

A lot of the old articles that I didn’t think were worth keeping have been removed.

Support me

I have no plans to monetize the articles behind a paywall because I would prefer that they are available to everyone. However If you find the content useful you may help support me, it is greatly appreciated as it helps hosting costs and motivates me to keep creating more content.
