SWEET TREATS ZINE CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
hey everyone! my partner and I are hoping to put together a zine, full of goodies drawn by YOU!
the theme of course, is sweet treats! candy, cookies, ice cream, anything sugary and scrumptious! don’t feel like like you can ONLY draw food though, feel free to interpret the theme how you like! we’d love to see comics, illustrations, and of course recipes of your favorite treats!
while this is a cute theme, it’s not intended to be all ages! sexy things are okay, though ultimately it is up to our discretion. just be tasteful!
hi res images are encouraged! 300dpi and up is recommended
please make new art for this! we’d rather have fresh stuff
we are planning to sell printed copies, and digital copies
final page count is not yet known, since this is our first project of this nature! it all depends on submissions. this will also determine pricing.
we are not concrete in artist royalties yet, but we do want to make sure you get a little something! right now what we have in mind is free print copies, as well as splitting money from digital copies. money from print versions would likely go back into print cost.
the deadline for submissions is october first!
want to send us something? my email is nina@dapshow.com

Another palette challenge, this time chamomilecatastrophe suggested Twyla from Monster High!
She is the daughter of the boogeyman, if you don’t know, so I drew inspiration from nightmares and shadows for the ‘spirits’ around her!

Shane Metzgar Update

plasmidshutterbox had asked how Baby Shane was doing, in response to my previous “Ask Me Anything” post!

AAAAH I LOVE IT WHEN PEOPLE ASK ME THE IMPORTANT QUESTIONS! Any questions are good, yes, but this one is super good.

In terms of treatment, I think he is ALMOST HALFWAY there.  Last week, I believe, was week 20 of 42.  He had gotten some blood work done, and the resulting “counts” were great (probably in relation to white blood cell count).  With that said—he didn’t have to go back to the clinic, or the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia for a week!  So—it seems like there is a response to the barrage of treatments that he is taking.

Super strong baby with a super strong will to grow and thrive.

I’m not quite sure if everyone does the Facebook thing, BUT, Michele moved the fundraising information and progress reports from a group, to a community page, called Help Shane Fight Cancer.  I think that this is a public page that anyone can peruse at leisure and “Like” to keep up with the progress.  The page is a mix of photos—family fun photos included—and updates about his treatment.  

Thank you so much for inquiring about how Shane is doing!

I have the next two days off.  YAAAAAYYYY!!I’m opening playing a little bit of internet catch-up with a few individuals, and working on commissions.So ask me anything!

Still trying out some stuff with my pixel base! This time with friend’s characters!

From left to right, we have Chrome ( thehappylandfill ), Emil ( indigoliz ) and Ery ( dokidorki )!

Please enjoy! Do not use unless you are the owner of these characters.

My bro made me the cutest Chrome Pixel ever! ;0;

She’s on my DA page now! Thankyou again Sherry I love her so much in this style!

Now that I’m home I can comfortably reblog this from my computer.

So much talent.  If you haven’t done so you need to go check out all the aforementioned individuals in this post.  Please, and thank you. <3

I, however, am now going to go take a nap before I start my nightly art-ing.  I feel really burned out.  <3 <3 <3

These are custom designs that were made specifically for t-shirts, for two super awesome people.  It’s for a birthday present!

I can’t really put down into words how much fun this was to draw up, as per request.  The individual I worked with, Kira, was extremely patient and understanding—a TRUE JOY to work with.  I’m not going to put super specific tags, or shout-outs with this at the moment, because Kira’s friend’s birthday isn’t until this weekend.  So it’s a secret—and even though I’m going public with the design, I have no doubt that it will be kept secret.  ;)

I really loved working on this.  I am really excited about the prospect of doing MORE commissions like this—inside jokes, what have you, for functional art.  BUT, right now, I gotta keep going with the fundraising commissions…and my 100 deviant point/$1 paintings after that.  n_n;;;

Just wanted to share!  Thanks for looking, and as always, thank you for your support.

Hey Tumblr.

I need help.

I’ve seen these things done and I’ve watched some gain success and watched others dwindle into failure. So, I feel like I have nothing to lose by posting this.

My cat had a terrible accident on Tuesday,…

This made my heart sink. I can’t imagine.
If anyone could donate even just a few dollars, that would be magical.

I don’t reblog these things often, I promise to get back to posting art soon.  This cat can recover fully from her injuries full and live a full life, but her owner needs help paying down the vet bills that have accrued.  Since I just came back from a convention I was able to donate a small amount this time, but I would also like to spread the word. 

GUYS THIS IS IMPORTANT.  Please donate and reblog if you can!  Also, for a VERY SHORT time, I’m willing to donate proceeds from sales of BLUE CAT WEARS PINEAPPLE HAT to this cause!  Please please help!

I was at Otakon last weekend. Otakon is basically my vacation, and I had a BLAST.I wasn&#8217;t able to lug my 75-pound computer with me (okay, maybe it&#8217;s only 50 pounds) to work on 2D art, so I brought jewelry stuff instead.  :DRight to Left:Malachite and gold colored brassTourmalinated Quartz and silver colored brassRutilated Quarts and gold colored brassOpalite and gold colored brassEach one is $15&#8230;  They aren&#8217;t listed in my Storenvy shop yet, but I thought I&#8217;d give you all first dibs if you want one?

Malachite and gold colored brass
Tourmalinated Quartz and silver colored brass
Rutilated Quarts and gold colored brass
Opalite and gold colored brass

Each one is $15…  They aren’t listed in my Storenvy shop yet, but I thought I’d give you all first dibs if you want one?
