Nice to meet you! I’m Jade Woodruff and I’m an artist.
I created Bento Studios in 2007 because I love sharing my art with others and making art for other people.
I’ve dabbled in just about every medium ranging from COPIC Markers to digital media. While I still work traditionally from time to time (especially for commissions), I predominantly create digital art using Clip Studio Paint, a Wacom Intous Pro Tablet, and a Surface Pro 4 Tablet.
In 2010, I was accepted as a member and in 2012, I became and Exhibiting Artist at the Island Art Association in Fernandina Beach, Florida. I have received dozens of awards for my fine art and video productions. I also exhibit and sell my art at conventions throughout the continental US. Most of my art is available online for purchase in my store.
Currently, I’m working on my graphic novel series entitled Game Over. I started Game Over in 2010 and currently have six books published. They’re available here on my site as well as on Amazon. You can even read them on the Kindle.
In 2012 I formed Woodruff Enterprises, LLC and I went full time with my art in 2014. Since then, I’ve become an active Twitch streamer. Though my content has changed, I always maintain a focus on art. Currently, I am streaming art tutorials on Tuesday - Thursday from 2:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. EST. I also stream sillier content on Fridays from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. EST.
My YouTube channel is currently in transition but I expect for new content to be uploaded in fall 2019. Please pardon the dust! One of the things you can look forward to is a vlog about my upcoming trip to Tokyo, Japan.
Throughout the year, I participate in anywhere from twelve to twenty-something conventions where I exhibit my art and even host some “how to art“ panels.
Thanks to all the support I receive from my fans at conventions, on Twitch, through online sales, on Patreon, and on Ko-Fi, I’ve been able to grow my business exponentially and look forward to continuing to provide the content that you enjoy. I look forward to seeing all of you at upcoming conventions!
