Character Design: Potato

The character design sheet I had up in the Design section for Potato was already a few years old and I knew I could put something better together now! It's something I've been trying to do for a while and other things always take up my time, BUT I am still determined to get this comic going- I want to tell Potato's story so badly!

Needle Felting: The Wulver

Here is my most recent needle felted piece, called The Wulver. It is based on a creature found in Shetland folklore. I'm starting to really like doing these photo shoots, especially with my pose-able pieces like this one!

Illustration: Borrowed

I did this illustration based on the SCBWI monthly Draw This prompt - this month it was "borrow". I wanted to try something in grayscale instead of full color, and here's the result!

Moon Animate Make-Up 2!

Here's a shot I did for the new Moon Animate Make-Up! I wish I could have done a bit more with the end of the shot, but the overall look turned out how I wanted. Hope it's a fun addition to the project!

CTN Road Trip & Bold LA Spring Pop Up Shop - Thanks!

The weekend of the 16th&17th was the CTN Road Trip, and the 23rd was the Bold LA Spring Pop-Up Shop. I got to participate in both and had a really great time! Thanks to everyone who came by, talked, or bought something from me! On the left of both pictures is my friend Salina Trevino, check out her work here!

I plan to keep doing these types of events in the future, so I'll give a heads-up when the next one is coming up!

RAW:Los Angeles - Thank You!

Thanks to everyone who came out to see me at RAW - and anyone who didn't know me and just happened to stop by! I think the show turned out to be a real success. Here are a few photos of my space. Thanks very much to Salina Trevino for helping me set up my space! Above photography is by Flip Cassidy and AXYZ3.

Reminder - RAW:Los Angeles Coming Up!!

As I talked about in my last update, I'm participating in the RAW:Los Angeles showcase, and it's happening next Thursday, February 18th!

To those who have bought tickets from me or otherwise shown support, thank you! As a reminder, you can purchase a ticket to go (the cost is $20) through my RAW profile. When you do this, you save $5 as opposed to buying a ticket at the door. Can't make it to the show? You can still buy a ticket from me to sponsor my participation in the show, and it is much appreciated if you do! The last day to purchase tickets through my profile is Monday, February 15th.

As a special thanks to those who help me out by purchasing a ticket, you will receive a little gift! Pick from one of the following:

The needle-felted lion and the particular print pictured here are just examples; you can choose for your gift to be different! The feltie could be your favorite animal/creature/Pokemon etc., and if you choose the print I will send a sample sheet with the available options. If you choose the discount for my Etsy store, the coupon will be good through the rest of 2016!

If you purchase a ticket from me and you don't know me personally, please send me an email at to confirm the name under which the ticket was purchased (all the info I get on my end is the name and number of tickets purchased) and to tell me which gift you'd like to receive! If you pick A or B you will need to give me an address to mail them to of course. I will be sending gifts out AFTER the show (I'm so busy getting ready for it right now!).
