miles of art, nerdcon: stories, and other things

there are so many things are going on, so this is going to be super random?

miles of art in shawano county is coming up on saturday and sunday, and i’m severely freaking out.  if y’all would like to come and see me and my art, i’m going to be at woodland studio in downtown shawano–probably sewing eyes on little plush friends.

so–that’s not creepy at all.

and, if miles of art isn’t enough, i have nerdcon:  stories the next weekend in minneapolis.  (hence, the sewing of eyes on little plush friends.)  i have my exclusive nerdcon art piece (and related swag) done and ready, and it’s going to be my little plague doctor.

the plague doctor has also become a painting that will be available to purchase too.  (assuming that no one buys him this weekend?)

but, because i realize that miles of art and nerdcon are not in everyone’s neighborhood who might want some plague doctor swag, i’ve uploaded two versions of the plague doctor to my redbubble until the end of october as a limited edition–thingie.

related to all of this, i’m waiting for a new print shipment.  special, new prints that have never before been prints for nerdcon and, possibly, miles of art.  (yep, i’m gonna have bits and bobs to buy.  DEMOCRATIZE ART THROUGH BUTTONS.)

(i’m totally not the only person who thinks like this.  jessica joslin, a mixed media artist from chicago who utilizes taxidermy in her work, is part of a vending machine-based button show in chicago right now.  bless.)

i’m also working on pieces for the artgarage’s quirky show.  (i haven’t been accepted yet, but these were pieces that i wanted to work on anyway, so we do the work and worry about being accepted later.)

i’m still trying to decide if i’m going to apply for the artgarage’s holiday shop.  i probably should.  (i need to ask when the application fee is due.)

i purchased a new/another stylus.  the 53 pencil, which i really like the shape and feel and slide of the thing, but i also think the firmware hasn’t been updated to reflect the newest iOS updates, so it’s not quite working the way that it should in procreate yet.

i’ve also been asked to design a shingle for a lamp shop and to potentially consign work with them.  this is exciting, yeah?

so, that’s the completely disconnected update.  i’m not sure it’s much of one, but  in the meantime, feel free to check out tentacle-made studios (and me, ‘trie) in our various and sundry social media, internet homes:

okay!  time for more work!

courage.
