Summary of art 2017

 As another year draws to a close, its; once again time to reflect on what was done this past year.

JANUARY
I’ve been picking away at my Mythological Minis colouring book for quite some time now. Initially I had planned to complete it this year, but the universe had other plans. Started learning Affinity Designer and hot damn that program is wonderful. Vectoring quickly became my favorite way to ink my work. I just love bold line work!

FEBRUARY
Didn’t get too many plush done this year, but the ones I did do, I really enjoyed. Like Blues the Mew here! I am still very pleased with his final look. Also my first time working with a wire skeletal structure in a plush, so it was a welcome challenge.

MARCH
A simple, yet complicated plush. Getting the shape just right was a trick, but he came out well.

APRIL TO JULY
It was around early April that it was decided to bring my side project, A Yukon Colouring Guide, to life. I had planned for this project to take at least a year, maybe two, but what with Canada’s 150th and the Alaska Highway’s 75th Anniversaries this year, it seemed like the best time to get this book out, so my focus was completely on this book for months. It wasn’t just the drawing that took awhile, it was the research. A LOT of research. I wanted the book to be factual, I wanted to be able to cite sources. So many phone calls, emails, and talking to people went into this project. It was also the first time I had ever actually published anything, so that was a huge learning curve as well. ISBN’s, Copyrights, Sponsors, working with a production company, all that good stuff.

AUGUST
A Yukon Colouring Guide was completed! The biggest project I have ever done (Buckles from last year would be next lol) I am immensely proud of the work I put into this book, and I can’t thank enough all of my sponsors, family, and friends who gave their time, money, and support into making this a reality! Also a huge shout out to Yukon Tourism for picking up the book and distributing it to all of their Information Centers! The attention this book has gotten still blows me away.

SEPTEMBER
I took a bit of a break from the art from August to September, I attended some conventions, and did some house renovations at the end of September. I have a brand new art studio and I love it! So much room now to work and just so organized!

OCTOBER
I made a pony! I haven’t made a pony in over two years, so I redid my entire pattern and made Sunset. Very pleased with the new pattern, and I have a few more ponies I want to make soon. Especially a Pinkie Pie, as I want to compare my very first Pinkie to my current pattern lol.

NOVEMBER
A new project I’ve been working on, being a huge fan of Bullet Journals and Planners, I decided to make my own stickers! Watson the Wolf, Lyra the Lynx, and Bensen the Beaver are my newest characters, and they’re just adorable. I have so many stickers and other things planned for these little critters that I can’t wait to get out there!

DECEMBER
To my happy surprise, I got accepted into not one, but two different conventions for the 2018 year! So planning has already begun for them! One thing I plan to have at all future conventions is badges, so I’ve been making samples for friends while I fine tune just how I want them to look. It’s nice to draw furries again, been a long, long time LOL.

This year went by FAST. Way too fast, and I was pretty busy throughout the whole thing. 2018 plans to be even busier, and it’s kind of exciting. My focus for 2018 is to turn my art, into my business. That is going to take a lot of work, but I’m going to work as hard as I can to make it happen! Again, I want to thank everyone, my family, friends, fans, sponsors, and everyone who’s stuck with me this year, all of you have done more than you know for me, and I am forever grateful.

ON TO 2018!

Site Updates

Updated the Projects Page with the colouring book (finally). Updated the Commissions page, a little bit of tweaking here and there. Really need to stop neglecting the site! ^^; I post actively on my Instagram as well as Facebook if you’re looking for more recent updates! If only there was a way to update all at once for us lazy types…

New Stickers!

 Yay! My first batch of new mini stickers are ready! These little stickers are perfect for journals, planners, calendars, or anywhere else you want something cute! My new journal sticker series consists of two critters, a Beaver and a Wolf! (how Canadian LOL) This first batch is happy, and angry variants. I have a lot more coming soon, like other emotions, the critters doing stuff, and holiday themes!
 
The sheets are 4.5″/11.4cm High and 3.5″/8.9cm Wide, with each individual sticker being about 0.78″/2cm tall. They are printed on Non re-moveable matte white adhesive paper, and each sticker is kiss cut with a little white border.
 
They can be found in either my main shop or my etsy shop.

Sunset Shimmer and Pony Commissions

WOO! She’s finally done! I am so pleased to get this girl finished and show off her, and my new pony pattern! She is 20 inches (50cm) from her hooves to the top of her horn. She is made of Minky, fiberfill fluff, and upholstery foam. She is mostly machine sewn, with hand sewing to attach the horn, mane, and tail. Her eyes and cutie marks are embroidered, while the colors on her mane and tail are applique. Inside her hooves is corrugated plastic, so they are flat on the bottom.

With her done, I am now accepting commissions on a case by case basis for Mare Ponies. Click Here for pony pricing , but feel free to email me for a quote as well!
Lastly, 3 new Art Prints are for sale in the shop or Cinder, Raine, and Skye!
