I think last time I posted I said something about trying to post weekly... well, what's the saying... the road to hell is paved with good intentions? Anyway, a little run down of the past and we can move on to the (more exciting) present and near future...
Last week was AwesomeCon and I think I am still tired from it. For months I had told myself that I pretty much had everything ready and wouldn't need to turn into a whirling dervish at the last minute. I don't what the hell I was thinking. It was down to the wire getting everything done... the usual staying up to 1am the night before to finish sewing comics, finishing stringing ornaments at the table. Oh and not finishing the lit'le mushroom gals until the convention was in full swing. They sold very quickly and unfortunately I didn't get a chance to take a decent photograph of them. But I am going to start a few new ones... which is a good segue into what's going on now...
I am very excited for the next event I have coming up. I will be at the Amuse Art Fair in Winchester, VA on May 26 & 27. I am so pumped for this because it's the first time (well, in recent history at least) I will be doing something that is located where I live. I am use to either not being able to attend because it's much too far or having to travel. Even AwesomeCon which is somewhat "local" is still a good two hours from where I live. Having to plan travel and accommodations is huge cause of stress and it's such a relief knowing my house is only minutes away. I am also really looking forward to meeting other locals involved in the arts. Since moving here a year and some change ago, I haven't really been much of a social creature. My sense of time is awful and I (willing admit) can be flighty as hell, which makes for difficulty in making social plans. If you are considering coming in for the event (and you should!), but are not familiar with this fantastic little city please do not hesitate to shoot me an e-mail. I'd be more than happy to give you recommendations on where to stay, eat, and play! In the spirit of my excitement and the change of seasons I want to work on some new pieces within a theme of renewal and fertility. that will be available at the fair. The Ovum Mimic (pictured) I just finished will be part of this set and I am starting on at least one more of those. Progress photos will be posted as I go. Instagram really gets to see the bulk of these as it's so easy for me to update it.
On last thing, on the topic of an online shop. I took my Etsy shop down a while ago as I became disillusioned with the site after some changes they made. I will be re-opening a shop through another avenue this spring. The soft timeline for that is immediately after the fair, so end of May. In the meantime, if you are looking for an original sculpt piece, there are two available for online sale through galleries. They are linked in the shop section of my website.
