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! (。♥‿♥。)

It's event season!

Hey y'all... If you follow me on Instagram, chances are you've seen this already, but I also wanted to post this here for funsies. ;)

And in case you haven't perused recently, I added a couple of pieces to the illustration gallery.  I'll be updating some more as the weeks progress.  I have a few series in mind that I'd like to explore and a few series that I *ahem* had honestly kind of forgotten about.  

Speaking of forgetting... I realize I never posted the full image of my Sailor Moon piece that I did last month, so here it is in its full glory!  I'll have prints of these at the events listed above.  Along with a few different goodies. :)  Experimentation is scary and anxiety-inducing, but I think it'll be worth it in the end.  

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.  :)
