Had an absolute blast. Got a few commissions (one take-home) and sold some buttons, also started a mailing list for my MLP paper dolls. When they're completed and scanned I'll send emails to everyone on the list with previews so they can pre-order if they wish to do so. I'm also going to to the same with a large Mononoke fanart piece that was in my con art book that a lot of people took an interest in. Someone even offered to buy the original once it's scanned!
I made a ton of art as gifts and trades as well and hope to have scans of those from everyone soon. As usual they'll be uploaded on my main galleries and on here, but I may post about name stickers, full-body sketches, and colored headshots over on teenycom on LJ now that I have some new, super-cute examples!
If you're interested in being on either list, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org titled "mailing list"! List whether you're interested in the MLP art or Mononoke art (or both) in the message body.
Also I still have many buttons and prints available. 1" are $2 each to cover shipping and Paypal fees, or $1 with any commission. 1.5" are $2.50 each to cover shipping and Paypal fees, or $1.50 with any commission. Prints are $5 each unless they go together in a set in which case there is a discount. I have many prints available and will make a page of current prints soon.
Paypal is email@example.com. Thank you!
Since I didn't get a lot of take-home work I'm planning out some small comics related to the characters depicted in Shadowed Lives since it won't be ready for illustration for probably another full year at least. This is for my own practice as well as to stir up some interest and maybe get a chance to collaborate with other artists, since I still imagine Shadowed Lives being a collaborative artistic effort. If you're interested in these, keep your eyes peeled. I'll be posting all comics or at least links to them here.
Also, I'm going to be organizing to do more with my blogspot to make it more than just art, but also networking and advertising/featuring for other artists, indie shops, etc. and maybe post some inspiration-themed art and music shares and whatnot (linking to where someone may buy any music, of course). I hope, in short, to make it more active on different levels than before.
And finally, I was included in Odium Comix Issue 1! (WARNING: NSFW, mature viewers only!!!)
When I came home I found my copy waiting for me! :)
It focuses on black/white art, mostly sequential/small comics, all dark/surreal, many but not all adult or even showing an organic subject matter. A really varied zine, overall. Some of the work is a little shocking/unnerving and to some may be considered vulgar, but I found none of it to be tasteless or un-enjoyable. My piece is personal fetish work focusing on sex positivity and openness through the lens of something which to many would look like a humiliating, painful experience (I made this sound a lot less rough and gritty than it is, and a lot more deep...whoops). I hope to contribute regularly as making work to fit Odium Comix got me out of my comfort zone, which is always a good thing. I encourage you to check it out, but it will probably not appeal to many of my regular watchers--you've been warned.
