The art of Holly Hansel

(Photographic proof of my devotion. Circa May 2014)

Hello, I'm Holly Hansel (known as Hollarity or thegoombs online). I'm a graduate from the University of Texas at Austin with a BFA in studio art. I make digital art illustrations as well as water color, oil, and acrylic paintings. My commission info can be found on my contact page! Contact me at:

  • I am a free lance artist, and more of my content can be found on my Tumblr.
  • I have had two published comic series in the Daily Texan: Art & Soul and The Zodiac Girls.
  • I teach painting classes and sell artwork at conventions.
  • My mediums of choice are oil paint, acrylic, watercolor, Illustrator and Photoshop.
  • I have experience working with schools, museums, and wildlife (including but not limited to: snakes, alligators, tarantulas, and the occasional summer camper).
  • I love superhero movies and I have seen almost every big budget hero movie since the 90's (for better or for worse).
  • I'm a loyal Nintendo fan and I'll pretty much play anything so long as it has a Hylian shield or a mushroom in it.
