*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.

exciting things!!!

because there needs to be some consolation this week.

thing the first:  MY PROFILE IS UP ON THE MINNEAPOLIS COMIC CON SITE!!!

(i’ve honestly given up on anyone spelling my anything correctly–even when it’s in print in front of them.  c’est la vie.)

and, thing the second:  THE ARTGARAGE IS GOING TO BE IN A COMMERCIAL!!!

so, american express (and nbc?  i’m kinda hazy on the specifics of how everything happened) wanted to use a local business for the thanksgiving day/game day commercial about small business, and the artgarage was chosen.

evidently, they also took shots of the gallery in addition to the holiday shop, so there is a chance that my art is going to be in this commercial?!?!?!?!

so, for those of you who watch football and have, ya know, a tv that y’all watch things live (unlike me), the commercial is set to air during the third quarter of the packers/bears game.

and, that is our excitement.

also, friendly reminder that my kickstarter is still kickstartering.  it’s now up to $256/$3000, so we have a ways to go before we sleep.

additionally, my redbubble and my storenvy are here for all of your holiday shopping needs, so take a look and maybe a buy a thing, yeah?

Attachment-1 (2)

(both will be updated throughout the holiday shopping so check back, and if you’ve seen something from my sketch-a-day 2015 or on my instagram, let me know, and i’ll do everything that i can do to make it available.)

(totally a slideshow.  there’s a way to put slideshows into wordpress now sans plug-ins!)

and, of course, there’s always the option of a commission (or two).

just things to consider.

courage.

tentacle-made studios at bilotti’s tomorrow (5-8pm) for definitely depere

yeah, i know, i’ve disappeared again and have only resurfaced to tell y’all where i’ll be for definitely depere, but some of it, this time, is me working on new pieces to premiere at bilotti’s for definitely depere tomorrow, and part of it’s been creating digital pieces to put up on my redbubble (and updating previous pieces for new products–which isn’t completed yet), and some of it has been due to working on a competition piece for brain mill press.

drive-by: gallery nite and earth day

a return to the annoying reminder of Things I’ll Be At because it’s that time of year again.

gallery nite is April 16th, and i’ll be at the ARTgarage demo-ing–something.  DO Y’ALL HAVE SUGGESTIONS WHAT I SHOULD DEMO?!?!?!  i’ll also have things to shill, and a ‘lain freaking out in the corner.

additionally, i’ve also been asked to show at the college of menominee nation’s earth day thingie on april 22nd.

what do y’all think?  you think i should participate in the show?  what do i take with me if i do?!?!?!?!

(that’s the point in having chimera:  gryphon as the featured image of this post.  because gryphon–all the chimera–are recylcled/upcycled, mixed media pieces, so i should take some of them, yeah?)

ugh, failwhale

okay, so, here’s the thing–i’ve been making videos and making (slowly) art and doing things, and because work and brain space and the general suckage which is a body that doesn’t work the way that i want it to, i haven’t been getting things posted the way i really, really want to:  not here, not patreon, not youtube, not redbubble–nowhere.

it’s very frustrating, so this is gonna be a kind big post.
