tried to use milo as a model but he wouldn’t sit still!

new stuff up in the shop, and i have art to post on monday. i have been a busy bee.

i still have some accessories left up in the shop!

if something you wanted got snapped up, never fear…i’m making more as we speak. (including more pizza earrings, which seem to be in high demind…who knew?)

I had a lot of requests to start an online jewelry shop. Well, the dang wait is over NERDS. If you fancy owning jewelry that i literally spent hours making…mostly while watching bad shows on netflix, NOW IS YOUR CHANCE! i am in the process of continuing to ruin my back and eyes by making more, so if something you like sells, chances are something similar will show up in the near future. 

LET’S GET MY RENT PAID!

based on heavy requests i am putting out a cat version, and it’s done even, and i have it on good authority from two close cat loving friends that it is most excellent…but i don’t want to post it until it’s up on the store because i feel like everything got out of hand last time and i had a 48 hour panic attack waiting for the store to go up…i’m sort of a nobody, so the response was really unexpected and i got all blotchy with worries.
thank you though!
here are all of the pets that are way too niche to make merch for, unless i do it myself to sell a few at cons…i seriously spent a good tenth of my day dreaming these up and making myself laugh. yay for niche pets!
robocop, our betta, modeled for me, but i had to do our hedgehogs from memories because i really do love them against their will…

I can’t even describe the noises I made over this.

I LOVE YOU, AMANDA.This is the cutest thing ever.

RIP RoboCop, Lulabelle, and Princess Peach…Lady still is alive and hating me though!

Four drawings of Chuck Ragan, drawn by me, inkwash by Nation of Amanda.These were for an article by Dan Ozzi in the newest issue of New Noise Magazine (and make more sense in the context of the article).

My art improves to an unbelievable extent by simply shrinking it down for print. I don’t know why, but it’s a fact. And so I always draw things larger in real life than they’re gonna wind up in print. 

With these above images, I went a little overboard and drew the originals WAY bigger than they were supposed to end up in the magazine (no idea why I decided to do that), and then I got the issue in the mail and the drawings were actually much, much smaller than I’d been told they would be, which means I drew the originals way way WAY WWAAAAYYYYYY bigger than I needed to. Insanity.

But I love how they turned out, especially the skateboarding one, and the article is actually very sweet. Working with the people at New Noise was super great because they were incredibly nice and actually paid me for my time without me even having to ask (you’d be surprised how many freelance art conversations end abruptly after me mentioning I charge for my work). A great experience all around, and I hope they have me back!

that top piece is one of my favorite things i have ever painted, and definitely my favorite thing we have ever made together.
