It seems my weeks keep getting busier and busier! I love it! The amphibian voting poll ending soon on The Sticky Project, so go vote! We added a few new squigs thanks to some open commissions, and we have a show coming up soon!
New Squigs We opened a few small-scale commissions last week for morph and species additions to our shop. We were so happy when they all sold out quickly and finished up a few morph ones. Here they are! We had three morph requests, two for some gargoyle geckos and one for a leopard gecko. Since we want to focus on getting more species in the shop, but have had a lot of morph requests I thought this would be a good solution to that. We had just a small bit of free time open this week to finish these.
This little gargoyle gecko is modeled after a gorgeous striped garg. I was stunned to see it, and very happy with how it came out. So pleased! The red is super cute, too! Reminds me of my gargoyle gecko girl Balloon when she’s super fired up. (you can see a picture of Balloon below fired down)
Now we have four gargoyle gecko morphs, two of which are available now, (and on sale) and two of which will be available in three weeks or so!
The happy leopard gecko is based off of a pet leopard gecko! She’s so pretty. A little high yellow normal leopard gecko. I may just have to name this sticker after that little leo. This bright sunshiny leo makes me smile.
Upcoming Squigs We also got commissioned for two species commissions to be brought on. We’re doodling one right now, a green iguana, and this little guy is turning out very nice so far! We’re doing a bit more detail on this guy, with all those big pretty scales on its neck. More WIP pics can be found on our Tumblr soon, as soon as they are shown to the person who purchased the commission we’ll post them there.
Another for next week which is the meller’s chameleon. Pretty neat little cham, I’ve never seen a meller’s before but I adore the little cookie-cutter looking scalloped scales on its back and tail. This is definitely something I really enjoy about getting commissions for the shop. I get to see and doodle animals that I may have never even thought about before or knew existed! This job will never get old!
T-Shirts and Shop Sale Our t-shirt order and sale are open until Wednesday April 30th. There are select stickers on sale for $1.99. After the 30th, prices on shirts are going up to $20 each. Kids’ shirts will be less than that, and the men’s 3X and 4X will be a little more. These shirts will be ordered on May 1st and set to production. You should get them around May 15th.
When Will Commissions Be Open Again? In our personal life, there’s a big change happening! So, we’ve got commissions for more stickers closed until probably around the middle of June. We’ll update you on Facebook when we open them up! We want to do 5 commissions each month! We’ll also open up personal and commercial commissions then, hopefully! That’s the plan.
