Things That Happened in September

Oh, wow, I have been super busy!
Here's a quick run down of the past month or so...

On Sept 1, I had the disitinct pleasure of seeing Lady Gaga in concert at Fenway Park...Here's a video of her performing Poker Face (hopefully it will play lol):

I have sold a STACK of original ACEOs over the past month. I am in utter and complete shock, and have an immense amount of gratitude toward all of my customers. Without your support, I would still be making art, however...I would be doing it in between TWO day jobs (I know this because this is what I used to do!) and just the amount of extra energy I have only working ONE day job...Well, I put it into making art! But even more than the awesomeness of only working one job is the knowledge that my little drawings find good and loving homes with some really fabulous folks. So again, thank you thank you all <3

Ummm, some art news/updates: I am working on a new Monster High repaint...she is taking FOREVER because that is how I work on all my "big" projects. She's been sitting on my shelf for over a year, bald, naked, and faceless, waiting...Now she has new hair!

Basically, I learned that re-rooting doll hair is at once awful and extremely satisfying. I then hand colored her entire new do with varying shades of orange and yellow...It is 100% colored now, and I'm letting her sit until Sunday at least before I give her a decent shampoo. I am begging the art gods that her dye job holds after her bath :) More work in progress photos in future posts, I swear!

Also, I FINALLY got around to actually making a few pop-up/pull-tab aceo prototypes, and they work! :) :) :) I am so happy, and I honestly don't know why I put it off all summer...Oh, right, I was super busy making other art! Unfortunately, there are no pictures of them at the moment, but soon!!

Here is a photo of the Harvest Cupcakes my friend Julia and I made last weekend:
