Hi! Just a sample of the new things up for grabs. Click the image to shop!
Last Saturday I had only about 40 minutes to go saling, and I was not having much luck. No finds of note. I chose one last stop at random. It was a pretty bare sale. Mostly cheap plastic toys for infants and toddlers, some baby clothes, and an overpriced collection of DVDs. Sorry man, no one is going to pay $4 for a copy of Zoolander. I was turning to leave. And that’s when I spotted her.
I think she’s a #3 Ponytail Barbie. I’m still researching. I’ll have an update when she’s listed! She came with an original Ponytail Barbie case full of original clothing and accessories. I will most likely sell all in one lot. Stay tuned, and feel free to contact me directly with questions about this or any other items! Post in the comments or write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some of the latest now available in the Etsy shop.
I will have another huge batch of things going up over the weekend. Keep your eyeballs peeled!
My new goal is a design a day, but I’ve already failed two days running. You see, I’ve been babysitting the sweetest little guy this week. He’s a doll. I finally got myself in gear to use his nap time for more than just catching up on Facebook today. I only planned to goof around and play with brushes in Illustrator, (I’m still feeling rusty,) but, before I knew it, I had ruined what was once a complete gorgeous stock image. HA.
I give you, Pointy Circles in SPAAAAAAAAACE!
I think I need to start off in a realistic, attainable place. Keep it simple for now. I have aspirations to make and sell original artwork in my Etsy store. I will do that. Society6 is more about pattern for me. And I need to go with what I know. People love the Sloth. It’s sold so many units completely on it’s own, with no feature spot from S6 and no advertising from me. People found it, liked it, and bought it over all the many hundreds of sloth designs available. I’m still so jazzed about that.
So I thought, why not do more designs based on the sloth pattern using different animals? Go with what works, right?
First up, foxy man.
It was at this point that I realized I did pink AGAIN, so blue foxy was added to offset my apparent pink obsession.
What other animals shall I do? What’s trendy now? Maybe tomorrow I’ll put a bird on it.
Seems I’m on a kick. The design updates have begun. Some of the old are gone, and more are on the chopping block. It’s amazing the things you can forget by not using Illustrator for 7 months or so, but it’s starting to come flooding back to me. Now all I need is a mouse so that I can actually do something without losing my little mind. The laptop finger pad thing is only good for quick and dirties, but I’ve got some big ideas.
A new design! This simple thing took way too long due to some seriously troublesome computer problems. I’m using Illustrator CS2 and, for some reason, it would not rasterize the artwork. It wold just say, nope, too big. I don’t think it’s a problem I’ve ever come across. It also would not export them in JPEG format, saying that the images were, again, too big. On top of all that frustrating nonsense, my computer crashed several times during my saving attempts. I finally had to PDF it and open it in Photoshop to convert it to a JPEG. So weird! I’m hoping a newer version of Illustrator will sort this.
Anyway, Pink Moon. Available on all the usual Society6 products, including the newly added shower curtain!
By the way, this is a mixed media design. The stars and the moon are real space telescope images, very high quality. I expect they’ll print beautifully.
New on Society6! Click HERE to get free shipping until March 9th!

I’m also trying out some new ways to make fast artwork. This is my first woodcut. It’s just a practice done on cheap, unsuitable wood with tools made for laminate carving, so it’s crazy sloppy, but I’m still pretty pleased with how well it came out. Not bad for a first try, right?
I love this goofy bird. All that long water bird elegance on top with a big fat bottom and enormous duck feet. Somebody buy him quick, before I change my mind!
He’s on Etsy….. for now….
