New things for the new year... 2015

Hopefully after this round of commissions is finished I'll be able to make the changes that have been rolling around in the ol' brain pan.

More Mail in shows, more local shows, revamp/rework my site / DA, work on uploading work to Elfwood, and work on getting other galleries whipped into shape.

I'd like to focus more on new work for my shops - Society6, Redbubble, Zazzle & look more into Design by Humans...

Maybe if they'll have me, I'd like to do more sketch cards sets.

And as always, more drawing, & more painting - in general MAKE MORE ART... I need to stretch my creative wings a lot more.

Online Store Issues...

For the past 3 hours I've been trying to update my store at storenvy and they are having some sort of uploader issues.  I was going to move my store to Square's Marketplace but they're not global which severely limits your audience.

I might have to bite the bullet and go back to Etsy, I really don't want to.
Earlier in the year Etsy was randomly selecting stores for their beta layout codes and inadvertently killed many stores, mine was one of them.  It seems like my store got buried, my sales and views dropped in the toilet.  I hate the thought of paying a monthly fee for listings that never sell or get any views. 

It's just all so frustrating.

WindyCon is in the rear view...


Windycon is behind me now. When all is said & done, I broke even and a made smidge more. Next year I will ONLY be dropping artwork off to be in the Art Show so I will not be attending.

I met some wonderful people, and saw some GenCon artshow regulars. Jon Snow found a new home, that makes me very happy.

A HUGE Thank you to everyone that stopped by my table! You were the ones that made it worth while!

Next up... CapriCon? I will be applying for the CapriCon Artshow for February. I will not be there, I will only be doing a artwork drop off & pick up. Hopefully by then I'll have some brand new work to show!

Gandalf Work in Progress

Well, it's that time of year when my muse leaves me and goes on vacation, so I present to you a drawing of Gandalf. When all else fails, draw something you're familiar with. For me that's Gandalf or anything Middle Earth related. =)

Just a reminder, I will be at the Home for the Holidays Craft show in Geneseo Illinois. This will be my second to the last show of the year - my final show is NEXT weekend in Lombard at WindyCon.

I've also disabled my online store for now because I have a lot of originals with me, and I'd hate to double sell one. It'll be back online on Sunday.
