Your support helps immensely! It’s usually going to go for art supplies, but this month it helped pay my unexpected vet bill for my Zoey baby. Poor angel has asthma and it has been bad the last week or so. I don’t know the full extent yet as I wait on tests, but just today was over $315 and we have more to go on this road. Artist has to art, but also needs her best friend.
This cat is amazing and definitely my baby (at 9-years-old.)
I’m working now on new content for my website. https://www.shelahdowart.com/
I’m creating some artwork now that will only be offered through that venue over the coming months. Whatever I create and display there won’t be in book form until 2018 as an anthology of the year’s work. You don’t wait that long, do you?
This is from my book, Dragon Wings and Wild Things. I used Prismacolor pencils. The image is slightly darker in the book than I want in that way you only see when you truly color something, but it looks really nice when complete. I’ll gladly give a free, lightened PDF to those who have trouble with him, just show me your book with you in the photo.
The book of unique dragons that everyone has been waiting for is now in print and on Etsy as a digital download. It’s at a low introductory price only on Amazon! I have a 15% off coupon running for the weekend for Etsy. Just enter: THEREBEDRAGONS when you check out.
I’m totally a nervous wreck about this and other things. Health has been rough since early December. Flare, missed so much work it’s stupid. It’s stupid to the point of wanting to consider a GoFundMe so that I don’t lose the stuff vital to us (car, etc) and so….I’m trying out something new. I’m listing a few original art pieces on auction on my FB artist page with starting bids at $5. Scary!!! What if it goes no where? What if people back out? It’s like putting your babies out there into the world, fearing rejection. My artist page is at https://www.facebook.com/artbyshelah/
I just don’t know what else to do at this point. Disability takes a very long time and generally doesn’t pay enough for all of the essentials, like rent. Fingers crossed that being artsy can help get us somewhere. I’m still creating coloring books. This image here is Faun…
I also have been working away on dragons for the upcoming book, “Dragon Wings and Wild Things” due to release late March or early April 2017. I only have 5 more dragons to go. Can I get them done in time? You betcha.
If you missed it, “Weirdlings and Wildlings Vol. 2” is now available. To see some of what you’ll find in this book, check it out:
If you like fairies and you like cats, meet the new February Furbaby. This is a cat made just to celebrate all of the wonderful February birthdays out there (like mine!) and features a birthstone to color your way, a fancy little fairy cat, and the monthly flower as a stained glass border.
You can see there are many ways to color this image. What way will you choose?
