new illustration

Secrets of the Mangrove

I actually had this sketch lying around for about half a year. I found it in a pile of unfinished roughs, so I may go back and finalize more of them later on.

etsy and fridays

Long time no post! I hope everyone's doing swell and their summers are going excellently.

I've had this thought for a while, but as the title says, I am hopefully opening an Etsy store sometime in the future. For those who don't know: Etsy is a place where people sell handmade things, vintage things, and all sorts of supplies to make said handmade things. All in all, it's filled with really great stuff, so go take a gander!

In the store, I am planning on selling prints (and possibly originals) of my illustrations, pins, magnets, keychains, and random plushie things. If you think of something that you would like to see in the store, don't hesitate to message me!

Another thing is that I may start participating in IllustrationFriday. I think it would be a good opportunity for me to do something every week. I'm finding myself putting aside illustrationing for other smaller side projects, which probably shouldn't be the case.

We also got a kitty condo/cat tree/climbing structure thing for my lazy, senile cat. She has yet to climb the thing by herself....

cmyk mag and promos

First thing's first....

Yaaaaay CMYK magazine (with cat)! I got it in the mail yesterday. I'm on the 56th page #02, so go check it out! Also make sure to check out my friend Nazanin Abedin's entry on the 60th page (the one with the unicorn, #11)
: )

On another note, here's an update on my mail-in promo!

I kind of changed it up a bit. So now, instead of a pocket, I'll just sort of wrap 2~4 postcards in this envelope and close it off with a safety pin. I just need to sew it a bit along the seams and such. I'll be testing it out and sending one to myself before making them all... just incase they're unsendable.

The cellphone charger has arrived!!!
Finally, it's about 2 months since I last used my cellphone (one month in Japan, then one month with dead batteries)


self promo

Wow, it's already July! Time seems to pass by very quickly.
After spending much of June jetlagged and preoccupied, it's time to start creating promos for myself!

This is just a small screencap from Photoshop and I'm still fiddling around with it.
I'm planning on making an envelope from canvas with a pocket filled with examples of my work. It'll sort of be like how I made my business cards with paper sewn directly on canvas.

It might sound kind of weird, but I'll be uploading more photos of my progress as I finish them.
