I don’t know if this will count because it’s unfinished, but I’ve run out of time (even with the extended deadline) and I just really wanted to participate. This is for the LetsDrawSPN project where everyone draws the given reference photo in their own way. I was trying to do it in this style.
I took some snapshots at the Seattle Aquarium today.
Pillows! Phew~ These guys were a LOT of work, but thanks to ignitethesky we were able to get about 15 each of these pillow cases done. These are my FIRST two color designs, and I am SO happy with how they turned out. These pillow cases are 16”x16”, hand sewn with flannel plaid backs. I designed each one to look like classic, vintage business signage for each character (I’m sitting on a Singer Salvage design) I’m particularly proud of Castiel’s colors because we found the perfect Trenchcoat Tan to print on, and the navy blue ink matches his tie beautifully. Anywho~ The pillows are a steal at $28 each, or less if you buy them in a set. All are available right here- Thanks guys!
Like UE says, these were work intensive, but so much fun. I’m so pleased with how well they turned out. (Seriously, after we printed the first Castiel one, UE and I just couldn’t stop high five-ing one another.)
I need to get a futon or a couch just so I have a place to put them!
My super secret children’s book illustration project is almost complete! Which means time for more stuff! (Probably of Castiel’s face.)
Commission of #supernatural ‘s Castiel and dragon friend!
I totally forgot to ask if you could do angel wings for Castiel. Would it be cool if I paid you to add them the next time I see you at a con?
Again, thank you so much for the drawing!
Ignoring the fact that this is not a stellar example of photography, this means a lot to me. At Emerald City Comic Con, I got to meet and hang out with Lostwithouthisblogger, UnicornEmpire, PepperJohnRodgers, and several of their mutual friends. I also got to see - and thanks to UE, talk to - Misha Collins. It was fantastic.
I apologize for the bigger than normal watermark on the photo, but I really don’t want to see any edits of this floating around. It’s not a great photo anyways and it’s just for me on my blog, so please don’t re-post or edit this image in any way.
This is a mug I made several years ago, but has been sitting in a box due to a few size-able chunks missing from the rim. Even brief looks at the piece just brought despair, because it was no longer “perfect.”
Yesterday, however, my dashboard had a post about Kintsugi, which is the Japanese art of repairing broken ceramic with a gold sprinkled resin. It made me really adore the idea of making the mishaps and mistakes a celebrated part of the piece.
