Short Hiatus

I’m going to be pretty inactive here for a while, my computer is broken and this backup I’m using is ancient and super slow, it’s pretty hard to do much so I’m mostly using it for important stuff in order to avoid the temptation of throwing it out the window. Tumblr won’t work for me anyway, this thing is too old for Firefox and Chrome to even work on it, unfortunately. I’ll have to post my new art later once I get a computer that works better.

I’m also pretty busy getting ready to move, so aside from another commission I’m finishing up I’ll likely be on hiatus for a while, hopefully I’ll get back to painting and regular updates some time in September.

And here’s the Sea Dragon I sculpted at last summer’s Festival of Arts, and painted at this year’s Festival. These photos don’t really capture the iridescent metallic sheen of the skin, but you can kind of make it out on her head. I’m extremely pleased with how this piece turned out, especially since my plan to put an LED in the tip of her tendril failed abysmally. Phosphorescent acrylic paint came to the rescue, though, and now all of the white dots on her crest, neck, face, and tendril tip glow in the dark.

Super sculpey, original and firm, over a wire/wire-mesh armature, painted with cel-vinyl, acrylic, and interference powders.

I’m moving at the end of summer, at which point my ability to ship products and receive packages will likely be sporadic (read: nonexistent unless I’m visiting home in the USA once or twice per year) due to the country’s rather unreliable postal system.I’d like to be able to continue creating jewelry in my new home, so in the hopes of stocking up on supplies before I leave, I’m running a small kickstarter to raise the funds I need.
If you enjoy my jewelry, and would like to see more from me in the future, please consider backing or sharing my project &lt;3Project link is HERE.

Less than 48 hours to go!

Having an imaginary conversation in my head, notice it’s raining outside. Get excited and go out in the yard, realize I ended a conversation abruptly, feel rude. Remember I was just talking to myself anyway, feel better.

Wow, we are fully funded! Thank you everyone!I still have some stretch goals I&#8217;d like to try for, so I&#8217;ve added some cool bonus rewards if we hit them! Bonus postcards, sketches, and even free earrings for higher tier backers if we hit the goals I currently have listed.Also added abstract watercolor earrings as a reward or add on. Lots of the jewelry is claimed but I have a few pieces left, as well as lots of postcards and art prints.As I mentioned before, I&#8217;ll be moving out of the country soon, and I don&#8217;t know if I will be able to ship anything for a while, maybe not for a full year. Now through mid or late August is your last chance to pick up any prints, painting, jewelry, from my store. 
Many of my backer rewards are also reduced from their usual store prices, so if you&#8217;re looking for an art print it&#8217;s a good place for it. Keep in mind backer rewards include domestic shipping, so they&#8217;re a better deal than they appear at first glance.

I&#8217;m also running a sale in my store until August! Many items are reduced price until then.

CEMENT ECLIPSES @ CHIAPAS MEXICO

Artist Isaac Cordal (tumblr / facebook) - “With the simple act of miniaturization and thoughtful placement, Isaac Cordal magically expands the imagination of pedestrians finding his sculptures on the street. Cement Eclipses is a critical definition of our behavior as a social mass. The art work intends to catch the attention on our devalued relation with the nature through a critical look to the collateral effects of our evolution. With the master touch of a stage director, the figures are placed in locations that quickly open doors to other worlds. The scenes zoom in the routine tasks of the contemporary human being”.

these are so oddly adorable <3
