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

It's a new day + month + theme!

Hello world~ It's a new month (eep! AUGUST?!) and the beginning of something new.  If you follow me on Instagram, you know I've been (fairly) good at posting a drawing a day! It's not much, but I'm actually quite proud of this...  Unfortunately, July got the better of me.  But I think it was for the best.  I'm feeling rested and ready to get that daily drawing habit back up and running!

The last daily draw I completed was the month of June, and that one was immensely fun!  I also was quite proud of how the whole set looked.  I smell a little book in the works. ;)

August is shaping up to be a busy one as well as I prep for Long Beach Comic Con!  It will be at the Long Beach Convention Center September 2-3.  I'm gonna try my darn-toot'n-est to get some new prints and originals ready for you guys!  

And if you swing by my Instagram, I'm starting a new ~witchy~ theme this month in preparation for the Mega Mini Monster Mash Gallery at the Fan*Alley Artist Lodge on October 2nd!! I want to keep challenging myself to expand and grow as an artist so I'll be using this opportunity to push my creativity. *success pose!*

And just around the corner from that is Designer Con in November!! *phew* I always felt like I worked best under pressure, so there's no shortage here. 

Oh, and if you can't make it to an event... I have also re-opened my online shop! (GASP! I KNOW!!)  It's currently home to just a few select prints, but I'm hoping to add a few more bits and bobs as soon as I figure out how to manage shipping. ;P Let me know if there's something you'd like to see in the shop!  I also have a lot of grandiose ideas for other types of merch, so stay tuned for that announcement! 

Thanks for reading! (。♥‿♥。)

Hey! It's Update Time!

Hello blogosphere~ Is that still a thing?  What are the kids saying these days?  (insert grandma emoji here.)

Anyway, as the title says it's update time!  I've been trying to change and streamline my website and print branding for a little while now and I've been slowly making updates here and there!  I like to keep the website a bit more minimal and let my art and design work speak for itself, but the portfolio pieces will slowly but surely be getting a makeover too. 

In other news, I've got my 4 major events set for the year with (hopefully) a few more smaller things in between.  So here's where I'll be for the next few months.  I hope to see some familiar faces and maybe meet a few new ones!  I'll try my best to have a lot of new art and merch and some other fun goodies.  (Success Pose!)

2017 events! :D

Hey it's Update Time!

Hello Blogosphere!  So many things have happened in the past couple of months & especially the past few weeks! ⌒°(❛ᴗ❛)°⌒

First off, I just came back from a EuroTrip like 4 days ago. I feel really lucky to be able to travel and have these great experiences.  It was so much fun, and I can already tell I'll be reliving the whole thing through my photos.  ⊂((・▽・))⊃

I didn't get a chance to post about it much here, but I attended and tabled at my first ever Long Beach Comic Con this past weekend!!!!!  If you follow me on Instagram, I posted a few updates and needless to say, I had a FANTASTIC first time.  In fact, I had SUCH a great first experience that I'll be there again next year!! YAAASSSSS!!!!! (*•̀ᴗ•́*)و ̑̑ 

No lie though, I'm pretty sure I fell asleep with my eyes closed during the few quiet moments.  Hahahaha...  I was super jet-lagged after arriving home just 1.5 days before the event, but seeing familiar faces and positive reactions from people enjoying my artwork was a super energy boost like no other.  

Day 1 at my table!

Not only was LBCC a lot of fun, but it was also a great learning experience.  I'll be making a few changes to my setup and also trying to better manage my online store.  It is currently empty and ready for an overhaul, but hopefully I'll get it back up and running soon.  

Some mini originals I painted on-site.  I'll be putting the bottom 3 and a few more in my store soon! SOOOONNNN!!!

In other news, I can't say enough good things about the stickers I got from StickerMule.  They were a pretty big hit and the quality is just top notch.  If anyone out there is looking to get some made, I highly recommend them. ;) 

One last thing, I've made a Facebook page specifically for my art stuff!  I'll be posting sneak peeks, event updates, and a few little surprise goodies here and there.  It'd be great if you could swing by and hit the like button. ;)

Phew!  That was a lot of words to go through.  Thanks for reading and see you all in November for Designer Con!

The end of 2016 is shaping up to be a busy one. I'll be honest... I'm feeling a little out of my element, but I think it's pushing me in a good direction.  And hopefully it's an ongoing momentum.
