Sketchy Business

Happy 2018! Like… three months later, hehe.

How’s everyone’s creative endeavors going? If you’ve been following along my Twitter or Instagram, you may have noticed I’ve been pushing my Etsy a bit more. But with more sketch cards rather than the crafts. That’s one goal I wanted to accomplish this year – to improve on something I’m already working on.

Easy. Porg all the way. #PorgNation

In this case – it’s my Etsy shop. I love crafts, but drawing is my first creative love. Though, that doesn’t mean I won’t stop with the crafts…more on this in a bit.

Of course, when selling original (as in, they’re not prints) work, there’s always an attachment. I scan them, of course, before they’re sent to their new homes. In many ways I like doing the sketch card focus because I can pump them out a bit faster than, say, a hand-made plushie. And the subject matter isn’t just something that many love, but what I also love – otherwise, what’s the fun in drawing them?

Oh Miki, you’re so dead.

Getting the word out is a challenge I’ve accepted – so part of the fun is trying to catch people’s eyes. If I can at least get more visitors to my Etsy page…then I’ve accomplished something.

Hux with the buzzkill.

Well…sketch cards aside…I’ve begun the process of dabbling in some jewelry making…again. But this time, dabbling in a bit of resin. I’ll keep everyone updated!

Thank you for following along with me. And, if you’re ever looking to start up a sketch card collection or add something new to what you have, stop by my Etsy store!

Or, if you’d like to just contribute a tiny bit because my drawings make you smile, I’m always grateful for a coffee (or an herbal tea!)

Comics n’ Coffee

A few weeks ago, I was thinking about my next steps in my creative journey: Do I want to try a new skill like game development or do I want to improve what skills I’ve already learned? Because my mind can never sit still for a few minutes and I can be easily inspired when I see some sort of creative tool – I thought I could do BOTH.

Welp, let’s just say I got as far as jotting down as many notes for a visual novel idea. That’s currently on ice.

So I went back to something I haven’t done regularly in a while…post a comic! As is my habit, I scribble messy little comics for my own personal amusement, never to be seen by anyone else but me.

Convincing myself to just not care if they’re not perfect, I finally decided to polish these up and share them. Not too long ago, I posted the first comic! So far, I’ve been doing good on the weekly part.

Um, this is in no way…uh, ripping off of Empire Strikes Back or anything.

These comics not only feature my take on Snow White, but I get a little help with the stories using Rory’s Story Cubes. I praise these so much, seriously! I highly recommend them for anyone – particularly artists who need help getting out of those pesky blocks.

Snake eyes!

I post these weekly – catch them on my Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and Facebook! I’m everywhere!

Oh, and if you enjoy my doodles and crafts, I would love a coffee!

You smile, we all smile!
