Hello there everyone! Happy New Year to you all, and I hope this year will treat you well – do you have any plans for 2016, art, life, otherwise? I’m going to be graduating this year if everything works out. It’s almost surreal, and the difficulties were worth it. I’m not talking about the diploma, rather the experience, the learning, and people. They were worth it a thousand times over. That being said, let’s move on to the con plans.
I’ve sold at fairly local cons before, but now I’m sending feelers out to locations abroad! Anthrocon in Pittsburgh and Dragon Con in Atlanta are two such places, fingers crossed that the lottery for AC works out. I’m in for Furnal Equinox though, and Conbravo as well, and am going to be trying out Anime North as well! I’d have tried for What the Fur but the dates between it and Anime North are very tight, so we’ll see what happens. Otakuthon and Faeriefest are also being considered. Maybe one day famous San Diego Comic-con and Eurofurence will see me there, who knows! Any other con suggestions would definitely be considered.
Commissions status! Commissions are ||open|| for ACEOs and ink sketches, but are closed for everything bigger than that as I file through the waitlist. My website now has the whole list up and available for perusal here: dragonstormstudio.com/commissi…
Art status! I was able to find a metal printing group in the US so that’s now on the table. I hope to get those suckers in as soon as possible, cool eh? That being said, I’ve got quite a variety of art types now, so one of the things I’ll be debuting at the next convention is an art pack. Hear me out: each pack will have an assortment of things: large prints, medium prints, small prints, bookmarks, original art sketches, and metal prints inside, for a fixed price. On each bag will be a swatch that lets you know what the theme is of the pack. So – if you see a fire icon, chances are the bag will have a fire theme, with maybe a random water theme here and there. Altogether it would be cheaper to get an artpack than it would to get the work separately! And they’ll come in different sizes as well, different prices. Artpacks will also be available on my etsy store once everything is said and done.
Other than that,Arduino tinkering, foam smithing, painting, writing anthologies, and other projects continue apace. No rest for the wicked, my friends.
I am a traditional artist who is always interested in exploring new media combinations. With every work I do I strive to improve, and as a result my style is constantly evolving. I enjoy illustration, and my genres often dip into worlds of fantasy and science fiction. |
I don't just stick to drawing either. I'm also an avid cosplayer! Whether its sewing, propwork, (Oh yes prop work) makeup and/or acting, I love it! Each costume is a challenge because it makes me to try something I've never done before. If you ever see me in costume, feel free to stop on by and say hi! Maybe I'll draw you something if my arms aren't busy holding up wings. ;D
