Oh my goodness, so excited and nervous to hang art for display and sale tomorrow at Hemingway Cafe in downtown Oklahoma City!
Hello kittens! It’s Monday, so it’s time for the usual summary of studio-happenings of the week-gone-by.
I made it through the following crocheted items from my Etsy queue: Banette, Diglett, Growlithe, and Squirtle. I’ve also made it through about half of the last Magikarp Hat in the queue!
I also finished up a custom drawing commissioned through my Etsy shop for Furret and ran some prints of my Kabutomushi drawings (which are now available in my shop). I started work on producing post cards of some of my prints, but I haven’t finished those up yet.
For Fine Art Friday, I thought it would be awesome to go to the zoo and do some sketches from live animals— and it would have been awesome, but the weather was wildly uncooperative. I hid from the (cold!) rain in the indoor exhibits for about two hours before cutting my losses and leaving. I did get one sketch from the whole visit… It’s a black-necked stilt. He’s a pretty cool dude. (Art fail aside, I did get to pet lots of stingrays!)
Over the weekend I touched up some old large paintings, which I’ll be hanging tomorrow morning at the Hemingway Cafe in downtown Oklahoma City. I’m pretty jazzed about this development as I haven’t really had much artwork on display locally lately… My focus has really been on maintaining my business for the last few years, which keeps me holed away in my studio pretty much all the time… But a little piece of me misses being a part of the local art scene!
As the weather has abruptly alerted me, fall is nearly upon us. Starting in October, I’ll be teaching art classes for teens twice a week, so I’ve been preparing my curriculum here-and-there for that as of late. Until classes start, I’ll be pretty focused on Etsy shop stuff. I’ve been adding lots of new ready-to-ship items to inventory— so if you haven’t looked in a while, I recommend doing so!
I think that’s about it for the week! Thanks as always for being interested in the stuff I do!

Touched-up painting “Venado”. 24”x24” acrylic painting on floating hardboard panel from 2009. Heading to Hemingway Cafe for display Tuesday morning.
My crappy phone photo doesn’t do these cuties justice, but here’s my corlista Pokémon collection! She’s such a sweetheart to request things from, and her little crochet are so adooooorable. Seriously, the cutest Pokémon patterns I’ve seen, and she ships them all with their little Pokédex cards which add a wonderful touch.
At the very least, you owe it to yourself to go oogle the cuteness on her etsy shop. I will hopefully be growing my little collection even more in the future! I think my next order will be a Chikorita, Sylveon, and Munchlax or Furret—or both, oh gosh.
Ahhhh! Thank you so much! I’m so glad you’re happy with all your little Pokemon! :D
Repairs complete (or at least mostly complete)! This is a 24”x36” acrylic painting I made in 2009 entitled “Venada”.
Touching up some large old artwork to hang at Hemingway Cafe on Tuesday. Cats are very excited about the easel.
Fans of the Kabutomushi drawings I created a few weeks ago rejoice! I’ve managed to run some delightful little prints of these guys. They’re now available in my shop separately and in a set of all three (with a $6 discount!). They’re matted to 5”x7” and ready-to-frame— OR I also offer an option to frame them for you.
