Galleries, Conventions, and an Artist Call! Oh My!

This past weekend's Mega Mini Monster Mash Gallery event was a success!! Thanks so much to all the folks who stopped by the gallery! It was really awesome to see friends and meet new faces. :)  And I can finally share the full preview of my two lovely witchies!

Coming up next is Designer Con in Pasadena!  I've got some new cutie Voltron stickers and new greeting cards in progress. Along with more art, of course! You can see a sneak peek of the stickers on my Instagram here.

And then... I've lined up another awesome gallery event in December!! Ornamental Oddities curated by Marissa of HumAlong Productions and hosted by Fan*Alley! And great news, ARTIST APPLICATIONS FOR THE GALLERY ARE OPEN!!! Please email your portfolio, or website that has your artwork on it, to marissa@humalongprod.com

Wake me up when September ends...

 

Oh wait... It's pretty much done... (ba-dum-psh) In just 3 weeks, the Mega Mini Monster Mash gallery will open at the Art Institute in Santa Ana!  I've put a map here on the right.

It'll be a one night event with art, vendors, food, and fun activities! I'll have a couple of pieces in the gallery and I'm sure you'll see me floating around and gushing at all the awesome artists vending at the Artist Lodge event. 

And in November, I'll be at Designer Con in Pasadena sharing a booth with my lovely friend Diana!

I know I say it each post... but where does the time go?! Here's my event lineup for the rest of the year. Now with booth numbers!!

I'll be in artist alley again at Long Beach Comic Con in just a couple of weeks. (Booth #B16) Come find me and say hi! I plan to have a few familiar pieces with me (aka some of my daily draws!) and I'll be making originals on site. 😁

And while I won't be tabling at the Artist Lodge this time around, I'll have a couple of pieces in the Mega Mini Monster Mash Gallery and hanging out with all the cool kids at the event! 😘

And of course... Designercon is right around the corner in November. Diana and I will be at booth #925! I'm excited cuz we're near some super cool artists I admire like Tanoshiboy, Mauricio Abril, and Super Emo Friends

THANK YOU!

In the spirit of Thanksgiving... And promoting an attitude of gratitude all around... I would like to say thank you to everyone who stopped by our Designer Con booth this past weekend!  It was a great experience, and I'm pumped to create more things and try my hand at more shows and cons and festivals! 

And as an added bonus, my online store is officially up and running!  For those who could not make it out, there are a few prints listed, and I'll be updating the store with some original art in the next few days. :)

Thanks again and I hope everyone's holiday season is off to a great start.  

SOOONNNNN... Booth # 1010

T-Minus 6 days until DesignerCon!!!  I am a little bit giggly... a little bit wide-eyed... and a little bit sweaty. :P  But mostly, I'm quite excited to be able to showcase some pieces and sell some art!  

I've also set up my very own online store for the first time EVERRR!!!  Please check it out for a sneak peek of what I'll have at the con.  

Thanks to the magic of SQUARE, I will be able to sell prints and originals very very very soon!  The storefront is ready and viewable, but won't be officially open until after Designer Con, so stay tuned!  

We are at booth 1010!!!

Diana and I will be towards the back of the hall (booth # 1010).  Hope to see some of y'all there!

Full Speed Ahead!

Hey internet...  I realize I never posted the full view of my Fan*Ey pack submission, so here it is!  Just in time for Halloween. ;)  Fan*Alley even has a few extra mini prints left if you're interested.  Only $2 a piece! :)  

I will also be selling limited quantities in a larger size at Designer Con so be on the lookout for that!  

If you don't recognize them, shame on you! Just kidding... You're probably just not old enough to remember.  It is Wednesday Addams from The Addams Family, and Lydia Deetz from Beetlejuice!

And speaking of Fan*Alley, the Famous Cat Gallery is still going on and will be up for viewing until Thursday, October 15!  So if you're in the area, make sure to check it out.  There are a bunch of awesome pieces still for sale as well as prints! Support local artists! DOOO IIIIITTTT!!!  

And if you're not following me on Instagram, here's the full preview of my contribution titled "You Mei Not".  That's not a misspelled word.  The younger sister's name from My Neighbor Totoro is "Mei"... and since she's a Grumpy Cat Bus, she has refused to let Mei on to ride!!!  Eh? Ehhh???  No? Okay... LOL...  

In any case, I'm quite happy with how it turned out.  Because if you know me at all, you know I can't decide on things, so I mashed them together, so I'm pleased it turned out as well as it did.  

Grumpy Cat Bus!

Designer Con preparations are well underway, and while I am feeling a bit overwhelmed, I have awesome people supporting me, and I know everything will work itself out in the end.  :)
