Last weekend was the best weekend I've had in a long time. We didn't have to go anywhere. ANYWHERE. So, I took advantage of my free weekend and drew a lot of new items for the shop. We're well on our way to an average of a doodle a day.
New Morphs of Existing Stickers
The Red Extreme Harlequin Crested Gecko
We're very pleased to have been able to add this gorgeous creature to our listings. This is a little crested gecko modeled after Nicole Braus' beautiful red girl. We're working on adding more crested gecko morphs, so stay tuned! There will be lots of designer morphs in shop come September 15th.
New Products are AWESOME!
Did you guys remember the static clings we added to our shop last week? Well--boy howdy! BOY HOWDY. These are AWESOME! We printed quite a few this week to get a feel and to ship them out, and most are out now. But we stuck some to our windows. And car windows, and tanks, and EVERYTHING.
These things are the best invention since sliced bread. You can cling them on smooth surfaces with or without water and they will cling with the design facing away from the glass or with the design facing the glass. Pretty neat. They're water proof, too, so these are going to be GREAT additions to bath time. We're printing out a whole bunch for my little sister to use when she takes baths. Super fun.
We'll be uploading a video sometime tonight on our YouTube channel so you can see how they work better. They're very similar to the little clings that came in colorform kits that we used to play with as kids.
The NEW Monocle Line
Hats. Mustaches. Hats and mustaches. And monocles. You will soon be able to see these in shop. It's going to be a whole line of animals wearing these items. These two hognose snakes are going to be debuted at the Portland Metro Reptile Expo, so come see us to get some. On August 26th we'll throw them in our shop, though so those of you who don't live near us can get some, too. We're starting out with these guys. Many thanks to Shannon Hammer for giving us the inspiration for these!
The Next Week for Happy Gecko Sticky Situation
Much like last weekend, this weekend we plan to do a lot of doodling. The small goal is to get six doodles done, but the big goal is to do ten. If we are feeling really fancy we will do fifteen. I have a feeling we won't be getting super fancy any time, soon though.
Send us pictures of your pets! We want to see what you have! It's important to us to make sure that we draw animals direct from you if we can. The more shares and requests we get for animals the more we can figure out what to draw next!
We're also going to be debuting some back-to-school homework stickers next week. We wanted those available by September 1st, but the sooner the better, I always say. So keep an eye out for those!
Thanks so much for reading!
