Surprise Balls for the Holidays!

So, yeah. Sales pitch time, right? We always need money really badly during the November-December months. All the "extra" bills pop up and we're strapped. 

So, hey - why not grab a surprise ball for the holiday? 

Surprise balls are a blast from the past - toys and trinkets wrapped around colorful crepe paper to create a ball that drops toys as you unwind it! I used to get one of these every time my family visited a certain place that would sell them where I lived as a child. 

They make the best stocking stuffers, party favors and gifts because they're filled with things. Not just one, but lots! And I make sure that there are many different things, junk gifts only as filler (if I say 20 items, which is already way more than anyone else gives you in a ball, mine will have 5+ more) - those extras will be padding, like silly stickers, etc. But most folks use those "filler" toys in the whole ball!

I have 3 up for sale right now, with 1 more arriving soon. One is Christmas themed, with holiday gifts and red and green items inside. The others are "boy" (creepy crawlies, cars, etc) and "vintage" (real vintage toys and items from the 70s and 80s) themed.






The next will have "girl" themed items (mind you, I hate using gender labels like this, but it's a short descriptive way to let potential buyers know what's inside). You know, this next will be jewelry, kid's jewelry, unicorns, sparkles, girl character toys, etc. 

If you add extra items from my shop, I'll always combine shipping as much as possible :) Thanks for looking!

The Litter

I found an old piece on my external drive and touched it up... still makes me giggle after all these years... especially the kemomo kid's butt. LOL

All the Squishable Designs

Well, I'll never draw for the site again, since if you don't advertise - there's no way you can win (and I'm too busy to advertise on a million sites). Plus there are some other factors that I won't mention that has made me convinced that the site is certainly not what they claim it is. Once again, I didn't realize until I'd submitted a lot of designs ... the "stupid" in me strikes again. Flargh.

However, I'd like to thank all the lovely people that got me to the last round of voting every single time on every single design! Thank you!

Oh, and click for larger image; right click and open in another tab for full size if it doesn't load all the way on your device(s)!

Custom Art Commissions ON ETSY

That's right - I opened a few custom art listings for you lovely, lovely Holiday present-gathering people!

Click here to open the etsy shop link to see the listing :)

The details of the listing are also here:

Like every artist human being alive, I need money. You know, to continue paying the bills and such. So if you like my work, here's a chance to get some for yourself! 

If you are thinking to use my artwork for reference, tracing over, recoloring, etc., please know that I do not allow this. I do not give permission for anyone to do anything with my art except enjoy what I personally post, on-screen. Unless, of course, you are buying my work - then there can be some uses as described by the nature of the sale(s).


Never fear! Professional here. 

I'm a freelance artist of many years with a Bachelor's under my belt in graphic arts/web design. When you buy art from me it will be a professional experience. You will be updated on the progress, shown samples and sign off on a final draft so you know you will be happy. I work quickly and well. It often takes only a few days for me to finish something unless I'm bogged down by a big workload.


Shipping is free because you will not receive a physical copy (unless in-hand is requested or you are buying a crafted item). You will be emailed a downloadable image in whatever file form(s) you want. You can use this on things that you will be enjoying for your personal pleasure. This means please do not mass produce anything that I make for you for any resale scenario.

I have the right, of course, to refuse any request that makes me uncomfortable, and I will not draw or construct anything illegal. This includes fanart (although I can do "homages" where things/people/characters are referenced but do not look "exact").

If this is your first time ordering or you would like some ideas, I'm open to all work and ideas! I can and will draw anything except explicit sexual scenes (romance is fine).

*please note that the item lists "physical copy", but none will be shipped unless specified for further costs. (I wasn't able to figure out how to make it a digital listing without etsy requiring me to upload an image you would receive - even though this is a commission and the image isn't made yet!)

*This listing is for a single character/concept simple full with plain background, or a half/partial semi complex with plain background. You can always ask me if you want more or a specific style, etc, and I'll create a custom listing for you!

Illustration Ideas you can use these for (personal use remember, no resales):

card design for your friends and loved one(s)
dakimakura (body hugging pillows)
character design for roleplay
t-shirt design (single use)
pet/people/item portraits (cartoon, anime, illustration)
game/music/book cover art
avatars and/or banners/signatures
anime/furry/scifi convention badges
poster design (convention/events)
card/sticker design (business, mailing, etc)

Zoro Posing with Stupidity

"Stupidity" as in his "stupid cat" - stupider as the years go by, I guess, but I felt the need to draw this. Still working on the striping on my cat form fursona - it's never quite right when you can see the belly... or so I think, anyway. I also just left him floating inside the circle just because lazy. I was focusing on making him look good, and that's what came out though!

Etsy Sale: Rainbow Giraffe

He's [[ up for sale here ]] now!

He used to be just a "regular" plastic giraffe toy, but I wanted to have some fun. I wiped all the original paint off and redid him in a skittles wonderburst of colors. Fun!

Etsy Shop Open: Sleipnir Resculpt/Paint





My Etsy Shop is open for a while to sell some of my pieces that have been lying about the studio for a few weeks/months!

Sleipnir (left) is the biggest piece up right now. He was resculpted and painted from scratch to become a rainbow fantasy horse instead of the undead one he started out as.

He's vibrant, white-bodied with blue shadow tones and sports shiny hooves with a non-shiny coat. (I used matte sealant for his body, so his mane/tail/hooves are the only shine).

To be clear, he is a Final Fantasy Guardian Force figure originally made by ARTFX Kotobukiya Japan, resculpted and refinished/painted by myself.
