Added the last round of hand painted colorful abstract geode pendants for the year in the shop now! Each is $45 with free domestic shipping. And comes in a gift box.

Hand Painted Ornaments…

People have been asking me for years if I would paint ornaments for the holidays. And finally, I got some time to work on a few.

Twelve individual ornaments went up in the shop this morning. A couple are still available. But I also put up a custom option for people who want to order a specific color.

Go check out what is left or get your custom order in soon. I’m probably only going to leave the custom option up another week or so or until my commission list fills.

Designer Con 2018 in the books!

Dcon 2018 is officially over! And my booth partner Mr. Mars Studios and I killed it! We were both slightly intimidated walking into the new Anaheim venue, which was absolutely enormous compared to the old venue in Pasadena.

With the help of a great display and just a whole ton of color, we were able to draw people to the booth. The pairing of our two different styles really seemed to grab people. And Mr. Mars enthusiasm for just about everything is infectious. It is so much less stressful working an event like this with someone not only talented and professional, but genuinely excited about being there and showing off the work. We had a great time and I look forward to topping our performance next year.

I’ve updated the shop with most of the leftovers. And I will continue to do that over the weekend. I’ve also got some new items coming for the holidays (hand painted ornaments, boxer statues and some new boxer art items). Everything should be in by Cyber Monday. Free shipping in the US will continue through the holidays.

“Aurora No.2”

My second painting of the northern lights on matchbook is in the Etsy shop now (direct link to the shop in our menu).

It will come in a black frame with black matte background.

Dcon or Bust!

Decided pretty late in the game to build a display specifically for my fire breathing dragons. Because I apparently like creating more work for myself when I’m battling the tail end of morning sickness…

I got a few wooden castles. And after much deliberation on color choice, decided on a Castle Grayskull green look.

Not a great set of pictures considering how smitten I am with how they turned out. But I’ll be sure to get better photos when it’s up at the show. Hopefully it draws people to the booth.

Next up, finishing two more versions of my favorite villain, the Joker.

I need to add their miniature Joker playing cards in the right hands. And come up with names (suggestions welcome). But that makes six different versions coming to the show with me.

To close out the day and just decompress, I started a 20×20 canvas.

Ran out of good light so I’ll have to finish tomorrow in between packing up for Anaheim, and walking Management (who is none to happy we skipped a walk today. The air quality though here is horrible with all the fires.)

Designer Con starts November 16-18th at the Anaheim Convention Center. I’ll be in booth 843 with my equally colorful peer, Mr. Mars Studios.

Honey Slinger

Customized a Wandering Misfits Ink Slinger by Brandt Peters. I’ve always wanted to work on this platform being a huge fan of Brandt and Kathie. But I wanted to really do it up right.

Very happy with how this Honey Slinger came out. He will make the trip to Designer Con booth 843.
