Thought it might be fun to share this! Me and my good friend Jeff got to collaborate and design this Munny standee for a contest at work! We drew, inked and colored on it in equal parts. It was required to be a zombie for Halloween. We named him Craig.

Weekend Commission slots

Hey guys, since it seems like money’s going to be rough for a few months, I’d like to try opening up for a thing or two on the weekends when and if time allows. The last set of commissions went really well!

This time, throwing options at the wall to see what sticks, I’m going to open for one full body marker character art. [example 1] [example 2]

Price is $45 with no payment accepted before the art is finished.

Also, if anyone is up for it, (not that I expect this), but I’m also up for working on another 9x12 watercolor piece like the one I did for Jojo [here] because that was a lot of fun. Depending on complexity, the price would be between $100-150, with the original mailed to you. Again, no payment accepted until the work is finished and you’ve seen it, but in this case, payment is required before I mail it to you. Hope that’s alright.

One slot is open for each - the $45 slot is to be finished over the weekend, while the watercolor slot will take about a week, to be finished next weekend through Oct. 26. For both, I’m open for original characters, fan art, anything really. If no one’s interested in the watercolor, I’ll probably just open up for another marker one next week.

Slots are first come, first serve, and you can contact me with inquiries here on Tumblr, at my e-mail avidinterest@gmail.com, or on twitter @ goddamnitkate.

Cheers, guys. Thanks a lot for your time and interest!

So I did a watercolor trade with Jojo Seames! This is the Makeshift Man (from her comic of the same name), and Elvis the jackalope. I haven&#8217;t watercolored character art in a long time, so this was a lot of fun! Might have to do more of this sort of thing.&#160;: &gt;

This weekend only - $15 Character commissions

Hey, so I have a lot of time today & tomorrow, and need groceries for the next two weeks.

I will make single color character art for $15 TODAY.

I will not accept payment until the art is finished and posted.

Send me a private message with a reference image, maybe a word or two about the character’s personality/what they like or what you want them doing.

Also pick a color! : >

Personal characters are A-OK!  I am also down for fan art - video games, cartoons & anime, etc. - since I am a fan of many things.

Cheers and hope to hear from some of you out there!

Hey, by the way:

Me and Ashley will be tabling at SPX this year! I’ll post more details and probably a photo of what I’m selling closer to the date of the con! It’ll probably be a humble setup from me since I haven’t tabled for quite a long time - mostly prints, minis, etc. - won’t be taking on any commissions.

I am super nervous. No joke. Ahaha. Exhibiting is kind of stressful for me at least for the first day, so if you approach me and I seem awkward, it’s just nerves. I’m actually not really ready to appear in such a large public setting at this time, but it’s happening so HERE WE GOOOOO~

With that said, since I’m producing a lot of stuff right now, you can probably look forward to a bunch new art posts after the middle of September. : D
