About Stet Studio
'Stet' is used in the editing of writing and means 'let it stand'. When an author is looking through an edited version of their work they can request a certain change not be made, for whatever reason, even if it breaks convention or grammatical rules. I chose stet for the name of this studio because people, especially those who are marginalized, deserve to exist as they are.
Frequently Asked Questions
Question: What is Stet Studio?
Answer: It’s my virtual studio. My home studio is where I write, paint, and do my work. So this is where I showcase all of my work.
Question: What kind of art do you make?
Answer: I like to make art that points us to a future where queer and transgender individuals are not seen as outliers. I am hopeful for the future, even if that means it has to look very different from our present. These themes are also very present in my writing, even if they're a little less explicit there.
Question: I saw you use the term 'hope-punk' somewhere. What the heck does that mean?
Answer: It means I refuse to give up. I resist with kindness and care for others. Think of me as the person who will make you food to take to the protest, make sure you're hydrated while you march, and help you stamp all your letters when you're doing a letter-writing campaign. This article explains where the term hope-punk originated.
Question: Wait, isn’t your name something else?
Answer: It was something else, but Noah Griggs is my name now. Greer was my pen name, so if you see art signed by Noah Greer, that's me!
Question: Can I commission you?
Answer: I am open for house 'portrait' commissions, as well as custom commissions on a case-by-case basis. Contact me here!
Question: What supplies do you use?
Answer: My most commonly used are supplies are watercolors and colored pencils. My favorite paper is Arches (cold press). I often add detail to my watercolor illustrations with Prismacolor Col-Erase colored pencils. I occasionally use alcohol-based markers on Strathmore Bristol Board.
For writing, I use Scrivener and Microsoft word. But I do a lot of brainstorming on paper. I have a decomposition notebook where I keep all of my thoughts, and I usually use whatever writing implement I can find, although I do like the Piolet G-series pens. If I’m feeling fancy, I have a Twsbi Go (medium nib) fountain pen I like to use as well as a Diplomat Magnum fountain pen (fine nib).
