If you follow my Instagram, this isn't news to you but... my second enamel pin order is in! Get your hands on a hellcat, a bat mask, or the Shape of Water Gillman in the shop today!
So, so, so excited to get these puppies in this week. I'll be revealing all the designs on my Instagram so be on the look out! Pre-sale will start this weekend!
Enamel pins... coming soon!Read More
2018 has already started off on a relatively bad foot. I've been art-silent lately because of my dad's recent stint in the hospital, 2 sick dogs, and more duties with my roller derby team (I'm Creative Head for 2018! Woot!)
Hoping to get back on track by catching up with some pet portraits, a website redesign, and a logo design for a future toy store!
Lots in the works if I can just catch a break.
Wish me luck and stay tuned for more :)
If you didn't catch me at Free Comic Book Day or Tri-Con perhaps you can make it to Louisville for Derby City Comic Con, October 28-29th!
If you aren't able to see me then (as it seems like ONE MILLION EVENTS are happening that Saturday), I'll be doing another convention in my hometown of Evansville, IN. The first annual Evansville Comic Con & Collectibles is a one day event happening on November 18th (the week before Black Friday)! They already have a HUGE selection of toy and comic vendors and I know a lot of my local artists buddies will be there. Come out and see us! Entry will only cost $5.
A couple of my good pals have started a podcast all about Nintendo! The podcast is called NNPXL (New Nintendo Podcast XL) and I made a little logo for them!
Their first episode was all about their Top 10 Video Games, which inspired my own (smaller) list of top video games from childhood until now. Here's a quick, short list of games I love, have really fond memories of, and could pick up and play anytime. ((Feel free to share yours! I want to see what you all come up with.))
6. Star Wars Episode I: Racer
5. Zombies Ate My Neighbors
4. Pokémon Pearl
This was the first Pokémon game I actually played all the way through. I also loved the Underground, Secret Bases, mining, etc.
3. Any Sims!
I played a LOT of Sims Bustin' Out on GameCube and Sims 3 on my computer.
2. Animal Crossing: New Leaf
1. Harvest Moon - Magical Melody
I spent way too many hours on this and Sims in high school :)
Honorable Mentions: I haven't had much time in recent years to pick up or really delve into any new games, unfortunately, but more recent ones I love(d) playing are Animal Crossing: Happy Home Academy and Yokai Watch.
Here is the very first episode of My friend and I's podcast called New Nintendo PodcastXL. In this first episode we break down what the show is about and list our top ten video games. Artwork by @pizzaface
One of my first commissions for someone other than friends or family 😎👍🏻 This is Bernie, an adorable Sheltie Mix who belongs to someone I met at Free Comic Book Day. Check out my Pet Portraits page for the image of the final outlines. Such a cutie! 🐶💖
I realized I never posted on here about my Free Comic Book Day experience - it was a blast! This is a repost from my Facebook update of the event:
💖🍕 A big --Thank You-- to all of you fine folks that stopped by to chat or to look at my art. Special thanks to those of you who helped raise $70 for Another Chance for Animals and $25 for the Lamasco concrete park!
I had a great time at Comic Quest Evansville and, as always, they were great hosts who put on a great #FreeComicBookDay event!
Also want to thank my table neighbs, the Smith Bros (The Art of Tim Smith), who are always fun to be around. Tim's metal artwork was so cool!
Super-mega thank you to my husband too! He is always so eager to help and be a part of my art. My biggest fan 😍 I couldn't be luckier 🤓
I'll be at Comic Quest in Evansville, IN selling artwork this Saturday, May 6th from 10am - 2pm. If you've seen some of my art that you want or would like me to do a commission for you, this would be a great time to come out and get it!
I'll be selling:
- Coloring pages
- and I'll be taking Pet Commissions!
Of course you can also pick up from great freebies from Comic Quest - they go all out. If you want to find out what free comics are available, check out the link below!
A portion of my sales will be going to a local animal rescue operation called Another Chance for Animals. They are a WONDERFUL network of people that foster animals from the local animal shelter, working to find them forever homes. You can look them up and/or donate using the links below:

Can't wait to see you all there!
