Prototype notebook.  20 blank pages.  8.5x5.5 flat size.

Hoping to make more and sell them at Art in the Park this year!  I will also have some in my Etsy shop in the future.

Beer label class project! 

We actually had to make the labels, bottle caps, coasters, and container.  A photography student took some photos of all the projects, but I haven’t received those from my teacher yet.  Once I do, I’ll be sure to share them!

I went with a little bit of a redneck theme, and, of course, animals! 

More 3d stuff!  Using the UVs to put images onto my meshes.

Soon I should have some photos of a beer label project I’ve been working on. 

More 3d stuff.  Nothing too exciting.  Put a label on a can, made some stairs, and a cup thing I made awhile ago.

More shrinky dink stuff! 

I had success baking them on wax paper, but when I tried a brown paper bag (like the instructions say) they never managed to uncurl completely, so a few (not pictured) became too warped looking to sell, so they will live as magnets on my fridge instead.

I can’t handle watching them bake.  I had to make my boyfriend help me with that part because all the curling up makes me way too stressed out.

Second round of shrinky dink keychains, SUCCESS!  First round the area for the keychain to go through was too thin, and they broke, but DO NOT WORRY! I will make them into magnets.
So now I know what size works and I’ll be making more!

Crafty Stuff!

I’ll be vending at a Pitbull Festival event on the 27th of July in Hendersonville, TN.  It’s called PittieFest!  From 11am - 3pm on that Sunday.

So right now I’m practicing making some new products.  Right now I’m working with shrinky dinks for the first time!  My Silhouette Cameo is having trouble cutting the plastic, so that is making it a little tough.  I tried making some keychain charms, but the area I had for the chain to go through turned out to be too thin, so I lopped the circles off and now they are waiting to be sealed to become awesome magnets!!

I’ll have stickers, bookmarks, pinback buttons, magnets, and keychains of my Wacky Animals series as well as a few new pitties.  I’ll also have some prints available and I’m open for illustration and pet portrait commissions. 

I’m pretty excited!  Hopefully this shrinky dink stuff works out well, otherwise I’ll be sad.

Finally, something that isn’t a crummy 3D model!
Quote project for my typography class.  One of my favorite quotes.

Sorry it’s been so dead around here!  I only have one illustration class this semester, and most of the work for that is being kept under wraps.  The rest of the classes are keeping me busy!

Here are some pitbull bookmarks I made today, though!  I will be vending at an event called PittieFest next month, so I thought I should make some pitbull specific items to sell.  These will be made into stickers and maybe keychain charms if I can swing it!

Just some stuff I am making while learning MODO!

Most of it is incomplete.  Just learnin’ stuff.  (We’re really just suppose to do dishes / plates / dice, you know, easy stuff)

Piggybank is my favorite!
