Partyin', partyin' yeah!
I'm singing a song that 15 year girls enjoy. But I'm also quoting Will McAvoy from HBO's The Newsroom. Which of these you intend to judge me more severely is entirely up to you.
We had some lovely weather here in the northeast this past week. Last weekend it was nearly 60°F, and even though I really enjoyed it, I secretly hoped for more cold weather and snow. When I got into my car this morning, it was 5°F. I'll be eating last weekend's words and then some later on this weekend as we bunker down for yet another snowstorm. No, who am I kidding? I heart this kind of weather. Fingers crossed, I'm hoping for another snow day Monday. I can get some awesome painting time in, and the thought of sitting around in PJs painting and drinking tea really excites me.
Since we last spoke, I've made a few purchases and created an uber-awesome piece. Let's start with the purchases. There were several awesome recent drops, and I consider myself super lucky to be the proud owner of the following items:
Kidrobot and Huck Gee have really outdone themselves. It's an 8" Dunny acting as a mech for the 3" Dunny! Not only is this a chick, but she's super bad-ass! All of this is very cool, but my make or break was definitely the hinge opening. Amazeballs AND awesomesauce.
There's only one place I know of that still has these beauties in stock. And you, fair readers, are privileged enough to gain this
Pocket Rose Vampire
Translucent Green Glitter
Lol, I'm not a silly fangirl, but when I find out I'm talking to the creator of a really popular designer toy, I'm going to say "I painted a few, and it was a lot of fun. Thanks for making such a great platform."
And then he said thanks and we ended the call. All of that aside, I took total advantage of this sale (they're $25 instead of their normal $35!) and can't wait to show you what I create!
Speaking of create, here it is! My new art for the week!. It's still not 100% complete, but I'm really happy with it.
What's next on the queue? A customized Death Serpent, and some chibi Godzilla toys. There will definitely be smaller projects in between. Taking on this Death Serpent will not be an easy or quick task. Imma have to construct a project schedule diagram n'shit.
Lastly, my Pups have arrived safely back from SubUrban Vinyl and are available in my store right now! They're on sale! 20% off!
So, yeah. That's really all, kiddies. I hope everyone has a good weekend. If you're in the northeast, prepare for another storm! Maybe that'll get you doing something you've been meaning to complete for months/years/centuries.
Until then, be good, eat your veggies, and take a moment to just take a breath today. You work hard and should occasionally stop to look around before 10 years has passed in the blink of an eye.
I'll be right back.
