post-nerdcon: stories check-in, pop culture con, and nanowrimo

hello, everyone!

i have finally emerged from my post-nerdcon: stories collapse!  (it involves living in a blanket-fort, being trapped by a very angry murder-machine, ordering supplies, and being super-behind in ALL THE THINGS, so it’s super-exciting but imperative because cons are a lot a lot of emotional labor as well as physical and mental labor.  my spoons:  they are few and far betweeeeeeeeeeeen.)

gentle reminder:  if y’all saw anything at nerdcon–or, really, any cons that y’all have attended that i’ve been at–that you have a MIGHTY NEED for and it’s not up on my storenvy or etsy, just send me an email, and i will ensure that your MIGHTY NEED is filled.

or, if you’ve found yourself needing one of my pieces as a shirt of something, let me know, and i can clean it up and post it to my redbubble.

i’m also going to be changing my patreon rewards up, so they’ll be coming down for a bit while i re-sort them.

now, to the actually important stuff!

first things the first, nerdcon: stories was excellent, and there is even noises that we might get a third one, so DO NOT GIVE UP HOPE.

*tra lala la la*

so–the first depere art walk is coming up in a week, but because xo fitness is kinda awesome, my work is going to be there for the next week–like a pop-up show–starting tomorrow afternoon.

also, i finally sorted out my storenvy and etsy so that there are actual things in them, and my spoonflower has fabric, et al. in it now too.

as always, my redbubble exists.

courage.

a new year at tentacle-made studios!

potentially exciting things are happening here at tentacle-made studios in the new year!

(and, a freshly minted blog layout that only caused marginal annoyance–okay, a lot of freakin’ annoyance.)

a little end-of-the-year round-up

with a little bit of holiday bonus! \o/

okay, sorta.

*hands*

time to play catch-up

first thing the first:  check out my shiny phone case that i designed.  *shines badge*  y’all can get one of your own on my redbubble.

second thing the second:  i am officially going to be at minnesota comic con.

how’s that for awesome?  (i’m not listed on the site yet, but this only happened a few days ago, so who knows how quickly they update?  especially right before federal holidays.)

and, i just applied for CONvergence (also in minnesota–is this a theme?)

other con applications i have out right now are c2e2 (?!?!?!?!?), anime milwaukee, and kitsune kon (in green bay so, ya know, home).

so–the last definitely depere of 2014.

i’ll be at Great Harvest Bread Co. in depere on september 12th from 5-8pm

bring your friends.  bring your enemies.

Continue reading the return of stand-and-stir arting and the last definitely depere of 2014

Definitely DePere is Today!

Information about Definitely DePere and Gallery Nite  in the video because VIDEO!

While The Community Calendar is still relevant.

I DO NOT SUCK OUT LOUD TODAY.  (Okay, I might, but I’M REALLY PROUD OF MYSELF.)

So, I’m premiering some new swag today including my new Avengers set:  The Hawkeyes (with an emphasis more on Kate Bishop), Black Widow, pop art!Captain America, pop art!Winter Soldier, and Kelly Sue DeConnick’s re-envisioning of Captain Marvel.

 

The first iteration of my Paper Towns project (inspired by John Green’s novel Paper Towns), which is buttons, but there’s an interactive installation in the future of this project.

I’ll also be premiering new minicards (not shown because I was spamming everyone yesterday, and I was starting to feel back about it not really), and the first pieces of a project I’m calling (working title) Midas’ Touch.

I didn’t take pictures of these either.  Look for pictures of them later or in next week’s video.  It’s not going to be a small series and will likely get out of hand like everything I do.

It’s all about abjectness, the auratic, and the copy.  So, my projecTransparency video (above) is kinda acting as the beginnings of its thought process.  *hands*

There’s also going to be new prints because PRINTS (and there was a printing sale over Memorial Day).

And, we can’t forget my TOTALLY AMAZING SIGN (even if this is a craptastic picture).

Okay, y’all, I gotta go finish doing some things because I AM ADULT-DEFICIENT and the weather was messing up my ability to print yesterday.

And, don’t forget that I have a Redbubble store that has amazing things that you can get for yourselves.

OMG, THE TOTE BAGS ARE SO CUTE.

…I really need to stop slacking on my Etsy.  What would y’all like to see in my Etsy?  Tell me in comments.  Or retweets.  Or messages.  WHICHEVER SOCIAL MEDIA YOU CHOSE.  I’m pretty much everywhere.

Courage.

busy-ness, definitely depere, and projecTransparency installments

Because I keep forgetting to post them here.

I swear, I’m only, like, eight in.  They’re new!  I’m not used to it yet!

So, I just fail at the entire thing.

I need a minion.

*hard segue*

But, the sketch-a-day project is continuing apace.  (It’s potentially more fun to see them on my Instagram.  Contextualization, ya know?)

I’ve gotten really into Vyacheslav Mishchenko’s photographs of snails because–OMG!–they’re like tiny little fairytales.

With snails.

I really like snails.

But, I’ve also gotten really into Steve Axford’s photographs of mushrooms.

I really like mushrooms too.

*HANDS*

But, combine those, and we end up with the last, like, week of my sketch-a-day project:

 

     

 

So, there are more, but these are the ones that I’ve uploaded to my Flickr; although, they all are uploaded to my Instagram because, well, Instagram.

Thing High Atop The Thing, when did this all happen?

On a related-not-related note, these are how pretty the postcard-prints came out:

 

Aren’t they nice?  And, waterless printing!

I also picked up a sticker-making machine so–STICKERS!

 

They’re kinda craptastic?  Because the tops aren’t sealed but, still, stickers.

I CAN MAKE STICKERS ANY TIME I WANT TO!

The POWER!

MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Idek.  But, I like that I can make stickers of my drawings/illustrations and digital paintings.

I can also (re:  still) make buttons.

     

 

Which, also, tickles me.  And, yes, I did, in fact, design and make Winter Soldier and Captain America buttons and stickers.

I may or may not (re:  may, definitely, absolutely may) have a Marvel-problem.

And, further corollary to everything, the first Definitely DePere was last week and was–okay?  May’s always really slow, and this one was no different.  But!  There are three more:

  • June 13th
  • July 18th
  • September 12th

All of them are from 5-8, and there’s a list of places that participate.  For June, I’ll be at Polito’s Pizza again–which they have really good pizza (I thew gluten-caution aside and had my first real piece of pizza in a longtime, and it was good.)–but July and September I’ll be at Great Harvest Bread Co.

I still don’t understand why any of us are in restaurants; I don’t make the decisions.  *hands*

There’s also a Meet the Artist/New Quarter Opening at the ARTgarage coming up on May 22nd so–yay?  I’m supposed to demo, so I have to sort something out for it.

I’m–also going to be putting up a commissions page/information soon?  (And, a PayPal button for donations or whatever.  And, theoretically, adding things to my Etsy so it’s–has things in it.  Again.)

*THIS IS THE SOUND MY ANXIETY MAKES*

So, yeah.

Now, have the most recent projecTransparency videos (with increasingly more refined production value!):

Okay, y’all, I’m gonna go do other things (like sleep, jfc, I’m tired).

Remember that I have all sorts of articles being published over at The Rainbow Hub (and while y’all are there, you should read everything else because we have some incredibly talented, dedicated writers), if that’s something that y’all are interested in.

Courage.

just in time for the winter holiday buying season

IDEK, y’all.

But, I have gotten my act (sorta-ish) together(-ish), and I have put a number of translates-well-to-image pieces up on my Society6 and Redbubble stores as well as having some of my sculptures up on my Etsy store.

And, sorry for the inconveinienc, but my Etsy’s only taking Paypal right now because Etsy is being problematic today.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to take credit cards in the next couple of days.

As always, if there’s a piece of mine that you’re interested in, just shoot me an email.  I’m willing to negotiate and do payment plants.

tentacle-made studios, you stop for weird shit for the holidays.

Seriously, I’m trying.  If y’all have suggestions for things that you’d like to see up in the shops, let me know, and I will endeavor to do my little squid best.

What do people even want to see in these things?  IDK.  I know what I like, but it doesn’t seem to be the same things that anyone else really likes unless I’m in the land of fanart. *hands*

Courage, lovies.  There’s turkey this week.
