My Storenvy updated again. Sketchbook compilation zines (2012 and 2013), new stickers and the travel comic I just finished are up there now. MAN, taking pics and writing product descriptions takes forever, let me tell you. Like 3 hours! Dang. But I guess you only have to do it one time for each thing so…I’ll live.
Next up: plluuusshhh things!
I finished cleaning up my journal comics from early last year when I visited my family in Thailand! They’re probably only funny to me but I’m glad they’re done.
The first few comics are just about the flight over (because what else do you do in-flight). My home state really was flooding and on fire simultaneously. Australian Summer is a hell of a thing.

My workspace back in Australia (I’m in LA right now! :0)
Photo from last week! If I am working at all, my desk is a huge mess. That’s just how it is. u_u
Space is pretty limited! I often wish for a larger desk but there is literally no space for such a thing. Directly next to my desk is a couple of book shelves full of inspiration/art reference and a pin board for important documentation I can’t lose. To the other side is shelves and storage tubs for supplies and convention stuff. Also my wardrobe. In front of the desk is my bed. :D;;;;; My room has no spare inches in it at this point
My sewing machine lives in the guest room. :D;;;;;
—My tiling vulpix background was made by Karsen Slater! Back in the days of the poke_arts exchange.
okay so this is something i’m seeing 5 months late but this is karsen, MAN that was a long time ago, but i had a lot of fun making that vulpix tile and seeing you using it now on your blog is just. ;//3//; kinda makes my night tbh!!!
Aaahhh hellooo!! Yes, I still treasure my Karsen Slater vulpix tile. <3 It’s fun to be nostalgic about the poke_arts exchange now that it’s kinda collapsed ahaha… I did a lot of drawings for that thing.
The tiling shark fabric arrived a little while back and I finally got around to ironing it out and taking some photos for Spoonflower. :D It turned out nice. This is cotton sateen in the photo - I’m going to make pillow cases!
I’ve made the pattern available to the public on Spoonflower since it turned out well. Definitely going to upload more patterns in the future. :D
Finally finished updating my Storenvy for the day! All the new flat products are up now - stickers, postcards and the updated version of FIN.
Still to come: plush, more books, more stickers. @_@
ZICS (the Zine and Indie Comics Symposium) Launch Night was last night. I volunteered sorta last minute to do ART BATTLE for charity. It was a 20 minute battle, I think? And the prompt was “Jeff Wiggle” which kinda threw me for the first minute cause gdi do people not know that twenty minutes is not very long and caricatures are sort of hard? Anyway, I resolved to distract everyone with fuzzy spaaaaace lions and stars and that worked pretty well.
My noble opponent was tomagee and perhaps he’ll post photos of his half of the battle at some point. In the end our round came down to an unorthodox but epic tie breaking thumb war. I won! There’s no prizes or even really any glory though - just twenty minutes of entertaining a crowd while the band does quick tech/sound check. HOORAY WE WERE USEFUL!!
Anyway y’all might have gathered from this that ZICS is this weekend, at the Edge, South Bank, Brisbane. I’ll be there! Tabling! Surprising no one! If you’re local, come by and say hi. It’s free entry. :3c
I wish I was a dragon. Some kind of library dragon.
PS. I like how on bigger snakes their coils are sort of fat and collapse into wrinkly oblong shapes. Everyone thinks snakes are sleek and elegant but have you ever SEEN a real snake?? They can be really pudgy is all I’m sayin’.
