Rene Arreola artist
Rene Arreola

My name is Rene Arreola and I am an artist. My work is influenced by the superhero comic books I read as a child and my affinity for fantasy art. The blend of the two is how I would best describe my style.

I work full time as freelance illustrator. When I’m not working with clients, I’m creating my own art and stories for my independent creation The Realm Ethereal.

For fun, I enjoy dancing West Coast Swing. My wife and I dance socially and sometimes competitively. We also teach West Coast Swing.

My wife and I live in Monterey, California with our one cat (to rule us ALL!): Princess Greya.


Q: Are you available for commissions?
A: I am currently accepting commissions. If you’d like to hire me or license my work, please email me: rene@renearreola.com

Q: Who prints your merchandise?
A: For my drawstring bagsphone cases, and neck gaiters I use an outside vendor (Printful.) This vendor prints and ships these items to you directly.

My art/sketch books are also printed by outside vendors but are shipped to me in quantity. Therefore, I am able to ship these directly to you from my studio.

The art prints in my online store are produced by INPRNT. The art prints I offer through my Patreon are printed exclusively by me in my studio.

Q: What is the Realm Ethereal?
A: The Realm Ethereal is a personal project/product I am building and bringing to market independently and directly to my fans.

Q: What medium do you work in?
A: As of 2018, I have been working digitally. I draw, sketch, and “paint” on my iPad Pro. I like using Procreate for my monochromatic paintings. I like sketching and drawing with Adobe Fresco, also on my iPad. For taking my drawings or monochromatic works to final and in color, I port them into Photoshop.
