Find My Artwork At Edmonton Expo

It’s almost time for Edmonton Expo! I wish I could be there this year, but sadly I’m travelling, so I made sure there will be a table with my artwork in my place! Look for my helpers at table X26 because they’re bringing prints and books I’ve signed in advance, some of my new apparel collection from Liveheroes, tote bags, pins, stickers, and more goodies!

There will be a handful of pieces from my Liveheroes official clothing collection at table X26. They’re so soft and feel amazing in person! Each piece is hand-made in Europe with lots of love, and they look and wear fantastic! Since they’re all hand-made, I only have a few of each design and size, so visit table X26 early for the most selection. And if you can’t make it to the Expo, you can order your own online here!

Prints

I’ve signed and sent prints to Edmonton Expo for my table X26! So even though I won’t be there in person this year, you can still have your print signed, all ready for you to take home! There will be lots of prints, both new and some fan favorites, so check them out at table X26!

Books

Visitors to my table X26 at Edmonton Expo will be able to pick up books I’ve signed for you lovelies in advance! There will be artbooks like Femina & Fauna, and Rainbow Children. Along with signed Pop Painting, and Tanpopo volumes 1 & 2. I’m also offering a special for the show. When you buy 2 books, you’ll get a bonus gift print too! I’ve sent some gift prints with my helpers, so choose your favorite 2 books and they’ll give you the print as my thank you to you!

I’m also sending goodies to Edmonton Expo table X26 like my Sir Reginald and Tuttleina hard enamel pins, and more! This is the first time fans in Edmonton will be able to collect my hard enamel pins at the show, so come pick your favorite designs from my table X26!

New Original Artwork

I’m making new original graphite drawings to share with visitors to my booth523 at SLCC! And if you can’t make it to the convention to check out my new drawings in person, you can find lots of my drawings through my new Patreon page here.

Heart’s Blood Group Exhibition at Haven Gallery Opens Tonight

 

I’m excited to reveal a new painting for Haven Gallery and Beautiful Bizarre Magazine’s “Heart’s Blood” group exhibition! This show is curated by Beautiful Bizarre Magazine and pays tribute to the Oscar Wilde story, Heart’s Blood. My painting, “Heart’s Desire”, is an 8×10 oil on wood panel painting.

If you’re not able to make it to the exhibition, fear not! You can inquire the original artwork by emailing info@havenartgallery.com or find a print of it on my custom print shop here.

Join My Adventure Club on Patreon

I’m super excited to share a new project I’ve been working on for you lovelies! I’ve launched my band new Patreon page! Patreon is a place where I can connect more with my supporters and share more new art, behind-the-scenes looks at my process, and even what’s most important to me like Loki and my secret hobby (oh yeah, did I mention I secretly write fanfictions about Walking Dead and vampires??). It’ll be like joining my Adventure Club to share in my creative process!

One of the things I’m most looking forward to (and terrified of!) is sharing my fanfiction writing. But after I started mentioning it’s my hobby when I’m at conventions, or have visitors in my studio, everyone’s so excited and supportive to hear about it! So I’m taking the plunge and going to put it out there! Now you can subscribe for chapters of my Walking Dead fanfiction I titled “Loss And Gain”. I’ll add new chapters every month! This story is about WHAT IF Beth had survived being shot. What would happen to her and the group if she met up with them again? What if Beth and Daryl could finish their conversation in the kitchen? And what happens when they face off against Skin Walkers, a serial killer, and a herd of walkers!

I also have a lot of ideas for behind-the-scenes process content to offer only through Patreon. Finally I can do things like offer one-on-one portfolio reviews, share more videos, time-lapses, photos from my studio, and art that I make that doesn’t get posted on social media.

Patreon’s also a great way to get your own commissioned artwork! Every month I’ll be taking a small number of drawing and fuzzy bee painting commissions. You can sign up here!

There are loads of cool goodies and giveaways I have planned too. I’ve got to stop myself from giving everything away though, so you can come see what’s new here! I’m so thankful for your support for my art. Honestly, I can’t do what I do without your support, and by making contributions to me and my artwork you support a lot of small businesses and independent creatives I work and collaborate with too. It’s a big, wide, wonderful and amazing chain of being able to create and share all the rainbows and manga art in my heart with the world. And I thank you so much! So come check me out on Patreon!
