While I was in Palm Springs I did some sketches in some Rainbow Children and Femina & Fauna artbooks for some lucky collectors this weekend on Etsy! Rainbow Children is sold out from the publisher Dark Horse Comics, so it’s going to get harder to find in stores.

Good news art fans! My newest artbook Femina & Fauna 2nd Edition is coming to Etsy in time for Caturday August 19th at 7pm PST! This is a new and updated edition of my sold out artbook Femina & Fauna.

I have something new and fun to bring to Cat Con August 12-13! I’m bringing a very few handmade cat jackets featuring my artwork “Aria”! Doesn’t my friend’s kitty, Marlow, look so dapper? Each jacket is made by hand in Vancouver, so only a few exist, but maybe a few could come to my Etsy one day!
Totes! I’m bringing some awesome totes, clutch purses and a limited amount of tshirts and tanktops to CatCon booth 707. I’ll only have a handful, and some of the designs will only have 1-2 of each available, so if you see something you love, don’t wait! I’ll see you soon in sunny Pasadena August 12-13!
It’s almost here! My Bee Release on Etsy is coming August 4th at 9AM PST and I couldn’t be happier! For this release I’ve teamed up with Planet Bee Foundation to raise funds towards sponsoring a brand new beehive for the School For The Arts in San Francisco. Planet Bee Foundation have been so amazing to work with already at our Save The Bees panel at San Diego Comic Con. If you haven’t read about them here yet, their Mission Statement is:
Planet Bee Foundation is a 501(c)3 environmental education nonprofit based in San Francisco. Their mission is to create a green-minded generation and inspire environmental stewardship through the teaching lens of the struggling honey bee and the power of individual action. Through their school programs, corporate teambuilding workshops, and public education, Planet Bee hopes more people will care for our environment and take action to have a positive impact on our interconnected world. To learn more about the work they do, visit here.
I had such an amazing time painting all my lovely fuzzy little bumblebees for release tomorrow. And I have more to share with you! Keep an eye open for these cuties joining the release.
Each bee is framed and one-of-a-kind. So if you have a favorite, I suggest trying to complete the checkout process right away. Items in the shopping cart on Etsy are not reserved, so the first person to check out completely will get their treasure of choice. Then if you make another order, my Etsy coordinator Asami can combine them for you.
I’m making Beekeeper hand-embellished prints a part of my Bee release too! These beauties are 12×16″ prints and come signed & numbered in an edition of 13pcs with 2 Artist Proofs available. They release on August 4th at 9AM PST here, so set your alarms!
I’ve made a handful of one-of-a-kind apparel and a bee collage towel for my Bee release! There’s only 1 of each and sizes are limited, so if you fall in love with one, don’t delay! The first 150 orders shipping inside the USA will also receive a Bentley wildflower seeds packet to plant and help bees in their area. So get ready for release on Etsy right here August 4th at 9AM PST!
New stickers and sticker sheets are releasing on Etsy too! You can choose between a big fuzzy 3″ Rainbow bee sticker, or a sticker sheet of lots of new pollinator friends! Pick yours up starting August 4th at 9AM PST here.
I have been busy as a bee creating lots of new artwork and lovely treasures for my big Bee release August 4th, 9AM PST on Etsy Here! This is an extra special release because I’ve partnered with Planet Bee Foundation and am fundraising to sponsor a brand new hive for the School For The Arts in San Francisco! Proceeds from my Bee Release Aug 4th will go towards making this new hive possible, and help educate students who also love art and helping the environment! Planet Bee Foundation is a 501(c)3 environmental education nonprofit based in San Francisco. Through their school programs, corporate teambuilding workshops, and public education, Planet Bee hopes more people will care for our environment and take action to have a positive impact on our interconnected world. To learn more about the work they do, visit here.
And by supporting my Bee Release, you can help your local bee populations too! My Etsy coordinator Asami will be adding bee conservation-approved Bentley wildflower seed packets to the first 150 orders shipping inside the USA. Different countries internationally have different rules about importing things like seeds, so these wildflower seeds can go to addresses inside the USA. But if you want to help bees in your area too, check out your local bee conservation organizations for info on how to help!
I have new signed and limited edition prints coming to Etsy Here on Aug 4th 9AM PST. There’ll be signed prints of Lemon Drop, The Beekeeper, Trinity and Alveare. And I’ve made hand-embellished limited edition fine art prints of Queen Beeatrice, Alveare, and Trinity too! I added metallic gold embellishments to each one, in limited and artist proof editions of between 2, 3, 8, 11 and 13pcs only. These beauties are made on heavy archival 300gsm Entrada paper and come signed & numbered, and are each embellished to give them a special personal touch!
The metallic gold paint really pops in the light! It’s amazing as a detail for the honeycombs and adding a touch of sparkly magic to the prints.
I’ve made a brand new collection of original bee paintings too! These little buzzy, bumbly beauties are between 2-4″ in size and come framed. I’m so inspired by bees, as primary pollinators in our natural world, I wanted to make them all different colors. Even a rainbow spectrum one!
I had loads of fun painting these little cuties, and I hope you love them as much as I do! Since they’re smaller petite paintings, they’re a great way for more types of collectors or fans who are new to collecting original art to get an original artwork in their own collections. Each petite bee painting is one-of-a-kind though, and small originals usually find homes quickly, so be sure to check here right at 9AM PST on August 4th.
Vintage plate fans, rejoice! I’ve made a wonderful selection of new bee-themed printed vintage plates together with my artisan plate printer at Beatup Creations featuring my bee themed artworks! There will be a variety of plate sizes and prices, from little petite saucer sized plates, up to big magnificent vintage plates. Each one is truly one-of-a-kind and no plate can be replicated twice, so if you fall in love with one, check right at 9AM PST release time here to add yours to your own hive!
Look at this lovely little family of rainbow bee printed saucers! I had 10 matching saucers and now each one is one-of-a-kind featuring its own rainbow bee. So even if an original oil painting isn’t in your future, you can bring one of my super colorful little bumble-buddies home in a different way as a one-of printed plate!
Handmade necklaces, one-of-a-kind totes, and one-of apparel are joining my Bee Release August 4th at 9AM PST! Each piece will have only 1 in stock, so check Etsy early Aug 4th at 9AM for the most selection.
These scarves are amazing! You’re going to love them even more in person. Each one is handmade and hand-cut in Canada, and is machine washable on cold (they like to be hang dried!). Supporting local businesses is really important to me, so by collecting one-of and hand-made goodies like these scarves, you’re helping local and small businesses too! Proceeds of all my Bee Release goodies are going towards sponsoring a new bee hive with Planet Bee Foundation in the School For The Arts in San Francisco, and USA orders will receive a packet of bee-conservation approved wildflowers to plant and help their local bees while supplies last. So let’s join together spreading love, education and art in support of the bees August 4th 9AM PST right here!
I’m trying a new market in downtown Vancouver! Come find me at the Vintage & Handmade Society Market from 12noon-6pm on July 29th at Jim Deva plaza. It’s on the corner of Davie Street and Bute, and I’ll have a stand set up with some fun goodies from my studio!
I’m bringing stickers, buttons, and new hard enamel pins like Rainbuns and Tuttleina! They’re adorable, and even have locking clutch backings so they don’t fall off of your hat, bag or where ever else your heart desires to pin them!
I’m bringing some framed prints, pillows and plates to the VHS market! Selection is extremely limited though as most of these items are one-of-a-kind or I only have 1 of each, so if you come to the market and see something you fall in love with, don’t pass it up!
I’m also bringing a limited amount of apparel from my Live Heroes collection! These are super soft and full of amazingly vibrant colors, so I hope you love them! If you can’t make it to the market, fear not, because you can shop from my Live Heroes collection online here.
That’s a wrap! SDCC 2017 is all done, and what an amazing show! I want to give a big Thank You shout out to everyone who visited and supported me at my booth, joined my signing, panel and live painting, and made this San Diego Comic Con incredible!
Everyone at Dark Horse Comics and team tokidoki, and of course Simone, were fantastic and my signing to celebrate Femina & Fauna 2nd Ed. was incredible! Thank you to everyone who came out to support my new artbook!
Big squishes and thank you’s to my collectors, both new and returning, who gave my Surreal Safari collection pieces such amazing new homes! I had a blast painting them, and all my petite paintings from this year’s collection have gone to new places. I’m already thinking about my next painting series!
Every year I get to make Live Painting at Holbein art supplies booth a part of my SDCC experience, and I love sharing my techniques and talking about the thing I love to do most with fans and visitors. Thanks again to Holbein for having me and for their support. All their paints and supplies are amazing, so check them out if you haven’t yet!
This year’s Comic Con will stay with me in my memories, and I’m so grateful for all your love and support for my artwork! Next year is going to be my 20th year going to SDCC, and I know already it’s going to be a wonderful show. I hope to see you lovelies there!
