I like being included :)

Hey Everyone! Just wanted to share with you that I was featured in two Etsy Treasuries this weekend. My “Webley (Tim Burton) Myxie” was featured in a really neat one called Ladies and Their Top Hats. http://www.etsy.com/treasury/4d8ee7ba4b338eefa01ea98b/ladies-and-their-top-hats And my “Wounded Angel” Print was featured in a treasury called Binary Brush. http://www.etsy.com/treasury/4d8e5df086378eefac7e4cb6/binary-brush Both are really great Treasuries so please check them out!

Wedding Cake Topper








Hello Everyone, working hard on a Wedding Cake Topper commission this week. I was really excited to get the request, it just feels great to be able to add to someone’s special day. Also it’s been really fun designing the piece. My customer asked me to make a Dragon with a Fairy riding on it’s back. This is my first full length Dragon so it was a bit of a challenge but he came out great and I learn a lot as well.
It took 5 packs of pearl polymer clay for his body and 3 feet of wire armature to make him stand, approximately 7 inches. I then added the swirly, decorative designs with white polymer clay and gold paint. I was nervous about the wings…I wanted them to be bat like but still match the swirls of his designs and the spikes along his back. They were difficult and I had to redo them about 3 times before I got them the way I wanted.
Anyway the Dragon is complete now, What do you think?

Still putting the finishing touches on the fairy. Once she is all done I’ll get photos and post them for you.
Thanks for reading

Myxitastical







Hello Peoples!
I finally got my brand new Myxies posted on my Etsy store. I’m so excited to show you all this batch. I did some new unique Myxies that I’m really happy with. One of my favorites of the new ones was inspired by Tim Burton’s work. I made her dark, mostly Black and white with a gothic touch. She has a handmade polymer clay top hat and black wire spider web wings. Took me almost an hour to craft the wings but I was pleased with how they came out.
I also posted my second Steampunk Myxie. This one comes with a parasol I made with polymer clay covered wire and fabric. Took me ages to get the parasol right but it added a nice touch to the Steampunk I think.
Last but not least is my Patch Work Myxie. This little one has a completely hand stitched dress and wings. The head of yarn hair added the final touch in making her look like a child’s Doll.
Anyway, enough yappin, See what you think of my newest Sculptures on my Etsy Store.

That was Weird...

So Happy about how easy the Dragon Con sign up was this year. Since I won two awards, best Fairy and Best Horror at Dragon Con 2010, I didn’t have to go through the Art Show Jury this year. Thanks to all the attendees who voted for my work and saved me the tedious task of selecting which of my pieces to send to be judged. Not to mention, being able to now avoid the long wait on “will I be excepted in the show or not” that follows. This time I just filled out what displays and tables I wanted and Bop! Bam! Boo! I was done in like 5 minutes…leaving me plenty of time to do other things I needed to get done. Such as staring mindlessly at my computer, trying to look as though I’m working diligently on pointless Reports while actually daydreaming about weather I’d be a Super Hero or Villain, if I had a special power. Ya know, real important stuff. :P

I’m so excited whenever Dragon Con comes around…as always I’m full of so many ideas for pieces I want to get done in time for the Art show, but as always I don’t have enough time for them all. So, for this month, I’ll spend some of my time deciding which pieces will be a part of the show and which ones will have to wait another year. So hard to choose but, alas, I only have the one set of hands…just until I have the surgery to get more accomplished and become Octohand the superhero with eight hands who cranks out piece after piece of beautiful art in minutes. Then no doubt I would get to arting so fast that some unforeseen accident happens leaving me horribly mangled and bitter thus making me decide on a life of crime. Then my name would be OctoCrime…yeah nice ring to that…and I’d terrorize the city with all the mayhem I’d cause.
Wow that was a bit of a strange tangent…. Oh well back to pretending to work.

Thanks for reading, keep checking my blog for updates on my art.

I know I haven’t been blogging much these past 2 months, getting back to arting everyday has been hard…just so much going on right now. But I’m determined to get a lot done this year and as soon as I have Photos of my newest pieces I’ll be posting them for you to check out.
