Doing a lot of dog related art during our quarantine. Finished my last two Unicorn Pitties. They sold and are off to their forever home in Arizona. My recent mini Rainbow Boxer Angel with a cherry blossoms pattern sold and made its way to Texas.
I have another couple of Biggie Pitties on the table getting painted. Along with four more mini Rainbow Boxer Angels. Plus a mini Pittie coming in the mail Saturday that will have a special Strawberry shortcake theme painted on it soon.
I’m still working on stuff for the white boxer fundraiser but I’m thinking of postponing that event till things are less chaotic.
I was going to start up again on new designer toy designs and get ready for some upcoming toy shows. But all this virus scare has shows cancelling. I’m hoping things get sorted out before Designer Con in November.
In the meantime, I’m focusing on finishing customs and online orders. Plus I’ve recently become addicted to Pinterest and all the things I want to build for my son, the Intern. Of course Management has reminded me that I need to be getting a head start on boxer artwork. So what’s on the table?
April will be White Boxer month on our Facebook page. I’m doing a fundraiser for a deaf dog rescue in honor of my good friends deaf boxer passing. So I have some 5 inch white boxer statues I’m going to give a subtle rainbow touch on for special White & Rainbow Boxer Angels. We will have at least one available for auction, along with a mini and some paintings on different mediums.
I’m almost finished with another Biggie Pittie. This one in iridescent teal and blue themes. I also have a couple Unicorn Pitties waiting for paint jobs. I think I’ll finish several and release the lot at once in the shop. So Pittie fans should keep an eye out for a June/July Pittie extravaganza.
Last, five Mini Rainbow Boxer Angels will be coming to the shop. Plan is to just finish all five and post on our Facebook page when they are in the shop. Try to give everyone a fair shot at snagging one. They’ll come with dog tags ready to customize upon purchase and special packaging. Price wise it’s looking like $125 each.
I’m not an artist who is in love with any one medium. People tell me all the time from a business standpoint it would be better if I focused my work more and carved out more of a style/niche/brand. Instead of jumping around from paintings, toys, boxers, etc.
But there is NO WAY I could ever work like that. I just love creating. So my table will always be a hodge podge of whatnot.
So what’s on the table?
I’m customizing a couple different dragons. The teal one in the first panel I’m waiting for inspiration to strike on his paint job. And the black one in headphones is primed and ready for some color and a Love mix tape (showing my age there I know).
The white boxer sketch is part of an All White boxer fundraising event we will be doing in April to raise money for a deaf dog rescue.
Got a shark themed watercolor I’m finishing details on. A blue bird with cherry blossoms that’s going to get a bit of bling and sparkle.
And I’m finally pulling out a couple of the big Boxer statues I’ve painted up in the past to try something new. All the people who regularly participate in our rescue fundraising raffles will get first crack at purchasing one of these when they are finally finished.
So stay tuned for more looks at these pieces plus whatever else happens to spark my attention 🙂
