Commission Status: CLOSED

-----
I just got back from the crazy weekend of Anime North. It was a real battle agaisnt sleep the past few days. My body feels jetlagged. o__0 Con report can be found over at my blog: pheleon.blogspot.ca/2017/05/an…

Overall, I had a great time tabling with whitefrosty and next to BahamutDawnCreations . I also want to give a shoutout to ikeda for helping me bring down half of my keychain army (they wouldn't all fit in my suitcase!) Thanks to everyone who dropped by to chat, buy something, and generally keeping me sane: Superdemon-Inuyasha Jadejj Ladybloodskull Cmcookiez to name a few!

My next con is Otakuthon in August. I'll have time to prep so any recommendations are welcome!

On commission news, I'll be opening up slots some time in June. I just need to clean up and re-stock my materials. I'm also working out some slight changes: I have to officially phase out the classic style because I'm out of lycra fabric, sadly! I still love the proportions used for classics and I have a different type of lycra, so I'm working out a neo-classic style. I might also add my new 'nendoroid' type to the mix. Anyway, I'll need to work out these details before opening summer commissions! More info to come! :D

On other news... I finally got into grad school and will be moving this fall! :dance: In case people are really confused about my academics (because yes, seems like I'm forever in school)... After getting by Bachelors of Fine Arts, I worked a bit then shifted my career aspirations for art conservation which required taking chemistry and more art history credits. I completed an intensive certificate program in the field, worked again, and now decided to focus specifically for a Masters in paper conservation. I'd love to work with Asian art, like Japanese woodblock prints and etc.  So I now got accepted into the program and will be doing grad school for the next two years!

This means that I'll be taking lots of summer commissions, but probably won't be taking much (or any) in the fall because my schoolwork load might be too crazy.

I also need to update my DA gallery. I have a ton of projects that I completed and never posted, lol.

it'll be nice to have you closer so we can get up too shenanigans ;) lol!

Your little keychain army was nuts this year, i loved it! Definitely think you should do more FF15, and voltron for otakuthon. it's crazy popular. Maybe a persona character or two? hint hint nudge nudge totally not looking for joker....

oh! you'll be happy to know i sold my eevee poke block to someone at AN after the con! that was quite unexpected.

hehe, yesss adventure shenanigans! :D

The keychain army was indeed ridiculous this year. The setup killed me! I need to re-evaluate my display decisions, lol. More FF15 is def the plan. I'll be making Ignis too (and watch him...not sell, haha. Forever alone.) Ahhhh, Persona. They usually have too many details! I made some robot-ish ladies before; I forget their names... Labrys, I think was one of them?

Ohhh awesome! So you just have the espeon block? It's funny because I only sold the espeon pouch!

I'm trying to keep my head high and not let the stress take over! It's been an eventful year for my family too-- my sister got married and a baby is on the way! She's due at the end of august, right around when I have to leave for school. ^^;
Yess, just opened summer commissions! (btw, I still have some of the old lycra saved for you, in case you wanted the classic type to match your others.)
Hope you've been doing well! :hug:

Congrats on getting into grad school and finding your passion in art conservation! Also sad to see the classic style go, as that's my personal fave but its great to see your new styles being offered!

Thanks! :D I managed to keep the classic type alive for another commission round by using a similar-type fabric (but it's also limited in quantity). Hopefully I can find some sort of stable fabric source when I have to launch the neo-classics.

Ditto, it was so nice seeing you too! Have fun in Japan-- you will definitely have a blast! Be sure to eat all the things, and to visit Fushimi-Inari shrine while in Kyoto. (It's a really beautiful serene place) Stay safe and see you at Otakuthon! :D
