Mugs, Tees and More

I’ve been working to try to get new designs up on some mugs, tees, cards, notebooks, stickers etc. Some are on Etsy and most are via Printful and Redbubble.

New Merchandise and Paintings

AllMyPumpkins-ShelahDow
I’m touching base with my roots a bit. I haven’t felt up to watercolor painting so worked on this over several days.  I also put it up on some Redbubble goodies for everyone.  I’m going to make some cute labels with it as well. Planning out a lot of future stuff.

Truth be told, I just haven’t felt well at all.  Most of my fans know I have migraines and fibromyalgia. I am getting fibro flares, but the migraines are ruling my life. I’ve had 2 days migraine free since early July. I did get part of a day this week, so that was exciting, though I spent it in the prodrome phase of another oncoming migraine. Right now, art is what I have until I’m able to return to work. Even when I do, I have to have some environmental changes to make that work.

I was able to get a few new things out in the start of July which really bulked up that month for me prior to July 11th.  I also was able to release my newest book, Fairy Furbabies. It’s filled with little winged kitties of all types, including a calendar’s worth of cats of the month.

This month is a different story, however. It’s wearing me down. I’m striving to keep up with everything and get better so I can return to work. Watch this space for new updates. I’m not seeking sympathy, just understanding for why things aren’t happening as quickly as we’d all like.

July Patreon Recap

I’m a wee behind, aren’t I?

So for the July recap and what people received.

PerksDesignPacket-July

Level $1 received Broken Ballerina Doll.

Level $2 received Cancer Zodiac (Only on Patreon)

Level $4 received Katniss & Scoops

Level $5 received Siren’s Wish (Only on Patreon) & Atomic Headache

Level $15 received the entire packet of images below.
All other levels have perks that deliver over time; such as books, merchandise, etc. I spent most of the month ill, so I would draw sometimes in the little bits and breaks I’d get from the illness.

So far, for August, I have mandalas and a few other drawings. I’m trying to work on Leo. Health is still kind of eh. May perks were retired this month, with the exception of the exclusive images which do remain available.

Color On! Featured Artist for June

If you haven’t already heard, I’m the featured artist for June in Color On! Magazine.  The ‘zine has 5 new and exclusive images available.

You can get this on Etsy and check out their website:  Color On! Magazine .
The cover was colored by Deirdre Gamill-Hock! It’s gorgeous!

This edition also has some great work from other awesome artists.

You can also see brand new, exclusive designs available on my Patreon page. This is the newest design available only to Patreon supporters (and that’s at the $2 level!)

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.)
