We didn't get to much art this week, but we were able to add a couple new things to our shop and opened up a few new options for commissions. We have just begun commercial work and logos, and are very excited to get to doodling again for the July Debut animals that are on our roster. Starting next week we'll be doing that for you all to see!
Don't forget about USARK week! It ends on Sunday, June 8th. 10% of your order goes directly to USARK at the end of USARK week. Thank you for your support of us, and of USARK. Visit our shop here to help out.
Name That Sticker!
We are naming our stickers after your pets! If you'd like to get one of our stickers named after one of your pets of the same species (doesn't have to be the same morph!) be sure to take a look at animals we have pinned on our page to submit a picture of your pet and a little story! The story and photo with the most likes by the end of the week will have the sticker named after them!
This week we're finishing up with our dalmatian crested gecko, so get to voting today! Next week we're going to be naming our leucistic axolotl, so axie keepers keep an eye out on Sunday for the posting!
Woo hoo! Finally! Our meller's chameleon and green iguana finally came into stock! You can get these pretty new stickers as magnets, re-positionable wall decal stickers or regular vinyl decal stickers. We got the commissioned pieces out to the person who ordered them and BLAM! Now they can go into shop! I adore this meller's chameleon more than any chameleon I've ever seen. Even more than the pygmies! They are so comical and cute. It makes me want to hug them for ever and ever. I can't believe it's even a THING.
In addition to the meller's, this green iguana is pretty awesome, too. We had a few requests for this, and a charming little lady decided to commission us to put it in shop earlier than on schedule. This bad boy wasn't originally supposed to be in shop until late in the year. Lucky you! Species commissions are $25 each and you get four stickers with your order. Any species you want can be turned into a sticker. Terms of this type of commission mean I can use them in my shop. If you're looking for something more exclusive, we also do commissioned pieces for you on those that won't be used in our shop as stickers.
Logos and Commercial Work Opened
We recently got brave and opened up logo commissions. Glad we did, because we are extremely happy with how our first commissioned logo turned out. It's for the Redding Reptile Expo, and we are proud to have been able to do their logo. We're also excited to be vending for them, too in July! If you're in the Redding area or close by come give us a visit! We'd LOVE to meet you! It's a brand new show this year, but there is already a really great roster on the Vendor list! You can visit them on Facebook.
The Fundraiser Quilt for USARK
I can't even begin to say how utterly impressed I am by what Seri has been doing with this quilt! I was already awed by the previews, and the non-stitched blocks. Boy. Once they're stitched onto the quilt they REALLY pop! I can't even fathom how she picks just the right fabrics for these and can envision it before she even cuts it out. Per usual--just blown away. These three blocks will be sewn onto the main quilt and it will go up for raffle to benefit USARK. So far Seri has completed these three with many more to come! If you'd like to see more updates and curiosities check out the Facebook page we have for The Sticky Situation Project.
Thank you all for reading!
Please comment below which animals you'd like to see next in our shop! We wanna hear from YOU! :)
