1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: Art Drop Day~ Pic Heavy on: September 19, 2014 12:47:36 PM
@cackle: It was quite a bit of work, but I figured since I'm already giving art away all the time why not take it up a notch and give it away to some strangers~

@alteredmommy: I'm glad you like my art~ I actually forgot to leave business cards in most the packages so I won't be too surprised if I don't hear back but I'm still super hopeful.  Either way around this entire process has tremendously boosted my confidence in my art and I have decided I'm going to try and fulfill my lifelong dream of being a struggling artist and actually put some of my art for sale.

Random Acts or Art? That sounds super fun, How does it work??
2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Art Drop Day~ Pic Heavy on: September 07, 2014 03:17:56 PM
I'm not sure how many of you awesome crafters have heard, but September 2 was World Art Drop Day and I just had to show you some of the goodies I left scattered about the pacific northwest for some lucky strangers to find! I sent 20 pieces of random art from full page oil paintings to mini charcoal sketches into the world and I can't wait to find out if any of them got good homes~

Can't wait for next years art drop, I've already begun to create art for it and I'm hoping for at least 50 pieces if not 100! I really hope some of you will join in and help make next years Art Drop even more successful!

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Rockabilly Heart Apron (Pic Heavy & WIP) on: March 15, 2014 01:28:10 PM

I love participating in gift exchanges. Recently, I tried my hand at the Reddit Ape Exchange.  For my match I made a reversible, kawaii rockabilly apron with a custom sugar candy skull design on one side and retro polka-dot with cherries combo on the reverse. Finished it off with a couple heaping handfuls of ruffles and Ta-Da!

If you would like to see more of my work just run an internet search for my username. : D

5  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Scaled Greybeard Cloaks(Pic Heavy -includes WIP) on: November 01, 2013 04:48:37 PM
While playing Skyrim I became fascinated by the greybeards and their cloaks. The first cloak I made was a female version with the key hole much higher and was made from remnant fabrics. These awe inspiring creations feature dozens of scales adorning the outside along with two large stealth scale pockets.

Here's a couple of construction pics. : D  This particular cloak took over two months to construct but I wasn't working on it day after day, I've been able to cut done the production time tremendously. 

Here is the grey scaled greybeard cloak that had a satin paisley lining.  This is the lightest cloak I've made to date.

And for the construction of that cloak.

More cloaks and robes to come including a scaled leather greybeard cloak! : )

Made a gift set of posters and a personalized paitning for a friend.  I even threw in the cat and gave him a special ability, the ability to melt zombies with rainbows of course. : ) The best part is that I was able to make this gift because of an nostalgia exchange I participated in through Reddit, where my amazing match sent me a set paints.

For the wall posters I made sure that each were personalized for both of them.  For my wood burning friend a dragon breathing fire seemed fitting and for her competitive bike riding wife - a yoda with a bike.

Thanks for all the wonderful compliments.  Yeah I tried to put a lot of thought into the gifts. 

Wow I had never heard of Zeke the wonder dog.  That's awesome, the dog on the field now almost feels purposeful. : D

I had seen posts here and there about gift swaps but I want's sure where they were being hosted.  I'll defiently look into that.

9  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Animal Portiats & Univeristy Pride - Reddit Gift Exchange (progress shots) on: July 20, 2013 12:52:25 PM

A friend recently told me about Reddit. While lurking, I discovered a giant gift exchange / secret Santa community. From time to time I like to participate in exchanges and decided to give it a try. It was super fun and now I'm truly addicted, so for my second exchange I decided to throw in a little oil painting. It is of my giftee's two rabbits and her dog sporting the Spartan helmet on the 50 yard line of her college's football stadium. To continue the theme her pets spell out an 'S'.

First off, here is a combo of progress shots.

The finished piece.  It is 8.5 x 11 on heavy linen paper.

With the painting I also sent a Shirt and Bandana which I am very proud of.  I'm hoping it is okay to post a pic of each here as well.  Undecided

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Aprons! on: July 20, 2013 11:36:43 AM

So I went through an apron phase where I made enough aprons to clothe me and everyone I know....  and then some. The above and below apron was actually my first ever and like most my aprons it is reversible.  In fact, now that I think about it all my aprons, but the one I use is reversible.... Wonder how that happened. So here is a massive Apron Drop (kind of like a bass drop, but friendlier). : D

Then there is the Pink Satin Reversible Apron.

A Holly & Lace apron for my grandmother.

A couple of Blue Half Aprons made on request for another family friend.

Well it seems I'm missing some so I suppose that is all for now. Smiley
