Hello, darlings! So, it’s been a bit I know but so many wonderful things have happened and I’ve been kept rather busy. Not complaining, I love it.
ShutoCon – Just got back from Lansing this past Sunday. ShutoCon was amazing as always and this year we had a rather awesome little group in our room. All I can say right now is that I am sore and tired and it was so worth it. I have photos uploaded to my personal FB in a public album if you want to see what it’s all about.
CutesyKink – Okay, have you ever heard of CutesyKink? If you haven’t check them out now. They are fabulous. Japanese fashion of every facet at decent prices. They’re located in the UK. Why am I telling you this? Because I have big news.
CutesyKink has commissioned me for a couple illustrations!
I can’t even begin to convey just how excited I am. This is a major opportunity for me to get my work out there. My illustrations will be on shirts and other items, possibly bags and nail transfers. It’s going to be amazing and the payment from this is going to bring me up a whole other step in my savings goals.
Coloring Book – So, just before ShutoCon I was asked by a customer if I had considered doing a coloring book. I was very excited because yes, I have! I’ve been talking about it at home for awhile but I figured it was an unreachable thing for now, doomed to waiting on the back burning for another year or so.
Apparently I was very, very wrong in the best sort of way.
Said customer’s question started a flood of other comments and questions on my FaceBook page. Seems this coloring book jazz has a lot more support than I ever could have imagined. I have people offering to donate/pre order and suggesting print methods to me. It’s really quite awesome.
That said, as soon as I get my head wrapped around current projects and commissions I will be opening up an Indiegogo for donations. All who donate a certain bit will be able to request some kind of chibi for the coloring book and get their name (or username of choice) printed in the credits.
Also, will be catching up on my sketch a day soon and replies... just give me a bit.
Let’s see, what else… I feel like I’m forgetting something but I know better.
