About Me:Mother by day; Web Developer and Illustrator by night.
You can find stuff I've done by cruising by the following sites (and please do!):
Kir's at Ellen Million Graphics -- Ellen is terrific, and I prefer this shop, despite the competition and that I have too little stuff there (my fault, not hers!)
Whimsical Dreams -- my CafePress Shop, which has the most variety of both items and images.
Metasilk at deviantArt -- primarily prints, using high-quality photo-like paper (last I checked) than anything else I've had done so far
Whimsy at Zazzle -- another shop. Products may overlap with the first Whimsical Dreams, but I've not had the time to get everything up on both. I hope to just add traffic and get lucky (that's why these extra places).
Metasilk Webworks -- my usually slightly-out-of-date business site. (between work, art, and mothering, who has time to update her own stuff? *chuckle*)
I'm selling originals! Lucky for most of us, they're often small. Here's how to get one:
Take a look at the biggest gallery over at deviantArt: metasilk.deviantart.com/gallery/ , tell me you like something, and make an offer. Direct email is best (firstname.lastname@example.org). If I've already listed it somewhere, we may have to go through them (say, if there's already a bid on it). Otherwise, let's talk (or email).
Ink sketch of an Island (Micron pens on 60lb Caslon sketch paper).
Need more sky info...? There *could* be clouds of some sort... air currents hard to do in B&W like this? Ditto mist.... actually, I could lightly dot the background for mist... ( would be so proud of me if I did, no doubt!)
May print lightly on watercolor and tint that, which would clarify the sky. And be kind of nifty. This paper is probably too lightweight for tints unless I did colored pencil.
As always, your thoughts most very welcome!
Later: I did a version with dotted mist. Click on it to see it larger.
I sketched out a bunch of ACEO ideas oh, far too long ago. Been working them out of the sketchbook onto cards. This one I threw onto gear too. Probably printing way too big, huh? I am so going to have to come up with a better image to wrap around the teapot, though; it might be my new favorite cafepress item.
