I apologize for my lack of updating. It's much quicker to just upload a picture then to write, what I hope, is a fun summary of what I've been stitching. I don't think I'll have another update until before Otakon, which is July 27th to July 29th. I've been busy with a new job as well, so I've been stitching less. Here's what I've managed to get done in 3 months!
This was an awesome special order for Studio Nasu, who I met at magfest. The ninja is from the Gameboy version of Final Fantasy.
I worked on this piece for about a month, and it's 8 by 10 inches. It was a special order that was made for a game tester. I hope they liked it!
This is my favorite piece this year! I started working on it in February, and just finished last week. It's the second clock I've made, the first was my Sonic clock. I used every current Eevee-lution, and the first four Pokeballs for the main numbers. The edges were a little rough, so I finished it with some black ribbon. I'll be selling it at Otakon this year, but it'll be hard to part with!
Finally, the last piece of art for Otakon is done! I'll be displaying this and five others in the art auction. Here's the latest: it's in a eight by ten frame.
Here's the full list of items that will be at the auction:
Ranma and Genma from Ranma 1/2-starting price $50
Super Street Fighter 2 Character Select Screen-starting price $100
Ichigo from Bleach-starting price $50
Pikachu Pile-starting price $50
Tardis Sampler "It's Bigger On The Inside"-starting price $25
Sorry for the wait, but (in Professor Farnsworth's voice) good news everyone! I sold one of the pieces I had queued up for Otakon so I'm working on another to replace it. I don't want to clutter up this site with too many work in progress pictures, so make sure to check out my Facebook page for all of the latest updates. I should be done in a few weeks, the outline's already finished.
Before I got started on that, I did manage to finish one more Mario enemy. Here's the bud of a piranha plant from SMB 3.
No, that's not a new spin-off of Bleach, it's what my week has been. I finished Ichigo this week, so now I have all of my artwork finished for Otakon this year. I also listed him up on Etsy, just in case.
As for the Cheezeburger Network part of this story, I was lucky enough to be featured on one of their sites. I made the front page of Must Have Cute! They featured my Fire Flower Hair Clip, which is good because that's what I'm working on next. I've already started making some small Mario items, and I'll have them for sale in the shop soon.
Because I'm making smaller items for the time being, I hope to have more regular updates. Remember you can always check out my Facebook for the most up to date pictures and project, but I hope to post sets of five every two weeks. See you soon!
