Hello, everyone! Well, things have gotten so tight, we’ve had to swallow our pride and make an Indiegogo campaign to help us get back on our feet. The IGG page goes into detail, but the TL;DR is we’ve had so many unexpected and expensive bills between my trips (and probable future trips) to the hospital, the tree falling on the house and the damage it caused, and one of our cats needing surgery soon, that everything is backed up, financially. We can’t afford even basics for the time being, like restocking inventory for Otakon (which is in less than a month), getting the car fixed, down to basic bills which are going to start coming in soon.
The IGG campaign gives out thank-you cards, prints, stickers, and discounts to our Etsy shop. It’s difficult for us to stomach blatantly asking for financial help, so we tried to compensate any donations a bit, somehow.
Also I (Shy) am taking marker-coloured character-commissions through the IGG campaign for $50 (this includes shipping the piece to you). I’ve been thinking of taking some, anyway, so it just seemed to fit in as a perk for IGG. Here’s examples of my marker work.
Regardless of if you can contribute or not, it would be a HUGE help if you would reblog/retweet this to get word around. With our next con being still a month away, and a lot to pay for before it, We’re really in a bind!
Thanks so much to everyone who’s been so kind to us in the past, and for anyone who contributes or reblogs this IGG post!
Thank you to anyone who’s able to help, reblog or queue up for the next fe days @ o @ . It’s really appreciated!!!! and it’s a GREAT chance to snag some original art by Shy , something that she doesn’t do often!!! Also thanks to anyone who can’t donate but deals w/ seeing this post T v T;;; Take care everyone! XOXOXOX
uitonii said: I have been following you for quite a bit now, but just noticed that you've done some intaglio prints! They look absolutely beautiful. I was wondering if you've ever done any lithography as well?
I was a printmaking major before moving to Illustration when I transferred schools where it became my minor. Took several Litho, Screen and Intaglio classes before transferring and after. It’s my preferred medium but have had to stop since I don’t have access to the facilities anymore T v T ;;; should probably post more of my prints. Just a hassle scanning them since most are larger… I was bit of an over achiever when it came to prints…. the plate for this piece for is 19x23inches, same with some of my litho stones. I’ll make an effort to post some this week though because it is something I’m very passionate about and don’t get to share often T v T <33333
UAGHHHH. Feel like Otakon is coming up so fast @ m @ starting to prepare pattern totes n such to try to make it as smooth transition as possible…instead of preparing everything in a week and hitting a wall. Thought i’d post some of the new stuff I’ll have at my Artist Alley table this year (aka bagggsssssss :UUUUUU besides our usual prints, shirts, stickers etc). More available than just those featured here- these were just ones that I know i’ll have on me. Will probably have aorund 13 diff designs, 3-4 of each? We’ll see :D
-COEY! edit: Some available on mycklookshumantumblr! others are only available at con : >
I decided to combine my intense feelings for Monster Hunter Ultimate’s monster icons and the amazing designs of Puella Magi Madoka witches into a series of collectable stickers for the magic girls among us > v > think of them as merit badges? If merit badges are gained from murdering the poor tortured souls of those you once called friends. Am I right?! On our etsy as a poster or sticker set! Check em out! :D
I can never decide if Oktavia or Homulilly are my fav witches tho. So lovely. All of them T A T <333333
After being asked by Felix to make an icon that I thought represented what I see whe n I see him- I decided to do some for Shy, Jing and Kaylee as well @ v @ It was actually really fun and would suggest doing it too!! IT’s a neat exercise. Order being: SHY | FELIX JING | KAYLEE
If you end up trying this- tag with friendlyicons. would love to see what you come up with!!!
