Recently I've been listing a lot of original art at super cheap prices over on my Etsy shop:
I'll be adding spring things soon (stationery and whatnot), so check back often! I'm also still open for commissions, so if you're interested, just send me an email at flaxandkitegmail
I'm so happy that it's starting to look and feel more like spring! The weather has been so nice lately...a great break from all the ice (and frozen pipes...). It makes me want to clean and make lots of lemon-flavored baked goods!
I've mostly been working on commissioned costumes so far this spring, but I hope to make a new Daenerys outfit before June, when I'll get to meet George R. R. Martin (so exciting!). Still trying to design something really cool and original, so I'll share more on that later. I also hope to finish Elsa's coronation gown (and maybe the Cinderella gown) within the next 6 months or so. We'll see. I've been so busy with illustration and paid orders, that I rarely have time to sew for myself anymore. Which is okay; in some ways I'm a bit burnt out on sewing lately. I just realized the other day that I've been costuming for almost 10 years now @_@ It sure doesn't seem that long, but I guess I have made a lot of stuff. Still so much I'd like to make in the infamous "one day."
At least I get a week-long break between quarters of grad school. School is fun, and I'm learning tons, but it's still a whole lot of work. And it'd be nice to not be up painting until 1am every night.
On another note, I've started making tutorials again after not making any for quite a while. Mostly of things I happen to be doing anyway, but I'm happy to take suggestions. What sort of tutorials would you like to see? It can be anything from sewing to hairstyles to costume makeup to painting. Just let me know and I'll see what I can do!
I hope everyone is having an inspiring spring so far!
