I’m still raising funds for my tattoo school tuition, so I’m running a special on full colour pet portraits!
Get a 5×7″ portrait for $50, or 8×10″ for $100.
Visit the commissions page for more info and a request form.
I also have a bunch of hand-drawn bird necklaces, scarves, pendants, and other other items, in my Etsy shop!
Or, if you’re feeling so inclined, I am also taking donations <3
Phew! I got a full-time job last year after several years of trying to work from home….. and that job, while I adore it, really took my art energy away! I’ve managed to do a few little portraits through the year, but nothing near my old output.
However, in 2020, at least for a few months, I’ll be going part-time and I will have a lot more energy for drawing. So if anyone would like to commission a portrait or a tiny guitar, go for it! 😀
Here are two of the drawings I’ve done. A third is a Christmas gift so I’ll have to wait til next week to post it. <3
So, I’ve been waiting to post these portraits until I had a chance to show the band – and show them I have. The boys have taken the original drawings home with them. I still have no words for how their hugs and smiles and comments have made me feel. <3
At the Doug Fir, Portland Oregon, 10 February 2014.

Those boys, and their tour manager and their crew are so wonderful, sweet, and full of hugs. 😀

My beautiful photographer friend Hillary has put up some of her gorgeous photos from Seattle and Portland on her blog: Hillary Joy Photography 😀
I have had Andy MacFarlane’s beautiful white Jaguar on my business cards for a year now, and The Twilight Sad knew it, but I wasn’t able to send them that pendant until last week.
It arrived with the guys yesterday, and they very kindly posted a picture of it. 😀
I hope this won’t seem egotistical or bitchy.. those who know me, know that I am not like that. In fact I don’t think much of myself or what I do, which is why I am posting this:
I just entered ship dates into my last two orders in my spreadsheet, and in looking at the list of recent pendant orders (and gifts), had to laugh and say REALLY?? because included in the list are Anderson, Neil. Bellamy, Matt. Johnston, Ben. Johnston, James. Neil, Simon. Wolstenholme, Chris.
It’s surreal. I mean, I only got to give my silly miniature guitars (and drum) to four of those people in person, but they were so gracious and thankful. Lord knows what any of them did with my gifts, but – it’s just kind of fun. 😀
And let us not forget the wonderful thanks and help that I get from The Foreign Resort when they so enthusiastically share my work at their shows. <3
Music makes the world go round.
