Instagram, Twitter, and Telegram, OH MY!
I'm always super late to the party, but if you want to see other random pics from my life (mostly my cats) and some more sketches, give me a follow!
Because I generally only post finished work to FA, here are some other sites I'm on that I often share different things too!

Upcoming Cons and Events
I have a bunch of stuff coming up yay! Or at least more than I normally do lol.
Iron and Anvil: Artist's Alley at Ironmonger Brewing in Marietta, GA on June 9
This is my first non-furry event! I'm so excited! I'll still have some of my furry stuff, but I won't be offering badges at the event (maybe of people's pets?)
BUT if you live in the area and can drink, I will offer BADGE PREORDERS.
These will be BEER THEMED and $5 off for the "artistic liberty" drunk theme of any badge type. I am only going to take a limited number of these because it's such short notice.
Megaplex in Orlando, FL on August 3-5
Aaaand of course the MP themed preorders!
Badge-only Artistic Liberty Special:
$5 off each badge that fits the con theme (Furnesian Islands). You just tell me the expression and supply your character, I'll design a costume that fits the theme!
Megaplex Artistic Liberty Combo Special:
Bust Badge and an Digital Full Body Pin-up.
Regular Price at $30+$60= $90
$80 Preorder special!
Complex character prices still apply
*All are artistic liberty. You tell me an expression, digital or traditional for the badge, and if you want clean or nsfw for the pin-up, I do the rest! Pin-ups will likely be retro pin-up style and fit the con theme (Furnesian Islands)
**if you really want a different badge type, I'll switch out the bust for something else, you just pay the price difference!
Fursonacon in Virginia Beach, VA on September 6-9
TENTATIVE DUE TO ROOMING SITUATION
I REALLY want to add in another con this year and I think Fursonacon should be it. Unfortunately, I don't know anyone else who is going for sure yet, so I don't have roommates for the hotel! If you are going and trustworthy, I need your help! I'm looking for quiet 18+ roommates (who preferably are 21+ and like to drink sociably) please!
I'm excited to be selling in the Dealer's Den again this year! I'll have premade charms new for this year (check them out on my last blog post!), stickers, prints, and of course, I'll be taking badge commissions for at-con completion! I have a monitor set up so you can watch me work on the badges live!
I'll be at Texas Furry Fiesta in Dallas next weekend! Stop by my table in the Dealer's Den for custom completed-at-the-con badges, and watch me work on them LIVE! I'll also have prints, including my new eeveelution designs, as well as stickers and buttons!
I'm open for a limited number of spots for badges for TFF delivery! If you want a badge from me and will be at TFF, preordering is the best way to ensure you'll have a sweet new badge at the con! Examples and prices are here and more badge examples can be found here.
WANT A DISCOUNT?
If you have your badge fit the con's theme (Alice in Wonderland), you can get $5 off each badge! This discount is only good for preorders!

The Fine Print
Please read my Terms of Service.
Payment can be done either via Paypal or cryptocurrencies in advance, or at the convention in cash or credit.
*If you order a commission and do not pay or pick up:*
I retain the right to charge extra fees for mailing after the convention if for some reason you cannot pick up.
What a lovely convention! I was honestly surprised how nice it was. I mean, I didn't really do anything except for work in the Dealer's Den and then go to Closing Ceremonies. Oops! But despite that, I had a wonderful time. This con was a breath of fresh air for me after only having gone to FWA for the past few years. FWA is so huge and seems to be mainly a "party con", whereas Fangcon reminded me of the first Megaplex I went to years ago: small and everyone was willing to talk to everyone. It really felt like being among a bunch of friends. I don't know if that is just a side effect of being a smaller con, or if it had to do with the different kind of people who attended this one. The crowd was a lot older than the crowd at FWA usually is; I think I only saw maybe three underage badges the entire con! Everyone was also so incredibly polite! Most people I meet at furcons are polite, but the people at this con were some of the most polite I had met at any con.
Now, unfortunately I didn't take a single picture at the convention. Boo.... But I did get to go to the Birmingham Zoo the day after the convention and took a ton of pictures there! A big thanks to the zoo and to Fangcon for the free tickets!
Some of my Favorite Badges from the Con
I have to thank everyone who commissioned me both at the con and for take-home work! You all are amazing people and so creative with your concepts and character designs. I'm going to be busy for awhile thanks to you all! Everyone who got a take-home commission has been contacted, so if you still haven't heard from me, email me ASAP!
Like I said, I am going to be busy for awhile with the take-home commissions! I also have an art show coming up that I need to do some paintings for! I've never done an actual art show before, nor have I sold my paintings, so I am super excited-nervous! It's going to be a busy next month for me! If you're in the Rome, GA area on November 11, come check out my art (and maybe buy something) at the Artist Expo!
