Sorry for unintentional hiatus… and hello new followers!I want to make a zine, just because I can I guess. This is the first piece I drew for it… and I’ll say no more about it ‘till it’s done!

For Danielle, her character Lyall and his pack, Thanks so much for commissioning me!

Some scraps that have been lying around.

Hey there guys, I’ve been taking work for awhile but advertising that I’m open for two single-character commission slots! These will have a slightly longer turnaround time (1-2 weeks) since I recently started a new job and things are a bit busier for me.

Hello everyone! The Ladies of Literature project is pleased to announce that we’re beginning work on Volume 2! We’re hoping to make this book even bigger and more beautiful than Volume 1. We’ve invited our Volume 1 veterans to come back to contribute, but we’re looking for even more fresh talent to fill the pages!
For those who don’t know, Ladies of Literature Volume 1 was an illustration anthology that celebrated our favorite female book characters and authors.
This time around, we’re still working with the same premise, but we’re placing a stronger emphasis on illustrations that tell stories. We want well-composed illustrations that showcase exactly why you fell in love with your character or author. Make us want to pick up their stories for ourselves—like the ultimate book recommendation.
The book is going to be Kickstarted to cover cost of printing and compensation for all contributing artists. All artists will get a copy of the book. Any remaining Kickstarter and book sale funds will be donated directly to in-classroom childhood literacy projects via DonorsChoose.org.
(That being said, obviously this is a project that may include copyrighted characters so if we run into legal trouble, we’ll have to shut the whole thing down.)
We’re aiming to have 75 artists in total so if you’re interested in participating, fill out this Google Form with your name and portfolio by AUGUST 31, 2014. We’ll notify our final choices by mid-September. Thank you! So excited to see all of your work!

You should come join us for volume two! Be a part of a cool project and celebrate your favorite authors and characters :^D

Back! & Store update

Just a quick note to say I’m back from AX and reinvigorated to start working on art again! I have a ton of WIPs to finish, but meanwhile I put up all the leftovers from the con in my store, so please check that out if you were interested in any stickers or prints (and forgive me for the grainy photos, I promise they look better than that;;) Preorders for pillows are also open for those who asked! I’d like to do this con thing again so every bit helps me to save for the next adventure :^)

I already thanked & followed a lot of people on twitter but at the risk of sounding like a broken record, I met a lot of lovely people last weekend! Thanks everyone for all your support and the nice messages I came back to here <3

ANIME EXPO IS UPON US!!! except not for another 10 days or so…but soon!! Find me and Alex (aka Saubey/Gaybravado) at table C7 in the Artist Alley and say hello!
Our table is located in the second aisle from the front (when you enter the AA) on the far left wing! (We’re sandwiched between Red's and KL's tables so if you see a couple people sobbing in between two tables saturated in beautiful godly artwork, that's probably us.)
Also to thank all my cute sweet tumblr followers: if you come say hi, be sure to give me your tumblr username! I’ll give you some candy and a kiss and be sure to thank you in my follow-up post after the con!!
Hope to see you there!!

YEAH thank you for making this post Melly - definitely come by our table and say hello! &lt;3
