My queue does not seem to want to save my posts right, so here’s a little picture dump while I try to sort it out. I’m vending at a charity event for WWF tomorrow (the one with the pandas, not the sweaty men in tights) sponsored by the Ohio Modified Dolls, so I made a bunch of little animal versions of my little zombie plushies that I’m calling Blockheads (because of their big blocky heads of course). The endangered and protected species series has on their name tag the species’ status (endangered, protected, threatened, etc), and the suspected number still alive in the wild. The panda and brown tiger are going into a raffle to raise money for the charity, and I’ll be selling the others at my vending booth. If you’re in the Cleveland Ohio area and would like to attend a night of burlesque performances, live music, and cheap drinks for a good cause, the event is at Nina G’s bar in Parma, Ohio. It starts at 7pm and it’s $10 to get in.

In the meantime while I’m setting up new posts, I’m running a giveaway on the AlterEgo facebook page to try and get to 100 fans. Anyone who likes, comments on, or shares the contest post will get an entry, and if you get someone else to like the page and comment that you sent them, you will get a bonus entry. I’m somewhere between 80 and 90 at the moment, but when I get to 90 I will give away a $5 credit toward a future order to anyone who has entered by interacting with the original contest post. At 100, one entrant will win anything of their choice, up to a $25 value. It can be one or multiple items totaling $25, either pre-made or custom. You will only be eligible if you have interacted with the original contest post in some way. Spam posts will not count. To enter, go to www.facebook.com/AlterEgoDesigns, like the page if you haven’t already, and either like, share, comment, or do all three on the original contest post.

Most of my new products are uploaded there already as well, so feel free to check those out while you’re there. They’ll be posted here with more detailed descriptions over the next few weeks.

There is also a link on the facebook page to my storenvy shop. I’m working on uploading more there as well, so keep an eye out for that. The storenvy shop will be my primary method for online sales, since they do not rip artists off with insane fees like other more popular sites (*cough*etsy*cough*). I’ll still be uploading here, and I’m working on setting up direct links to each item in the shop from my posts to make things a little easier for everyone.

I know you guys probably thought I died, but I didn’t. I’ve just been really horribly busy making tons of awesome new things. But I’ve spaced out my events a little more so that I actually have some free time again, so I’ll be back with lots more fun stuff soon.

Just a tiny part of what I’ve been doing for the last several months. A really, seriously tiny part. This is only maybe a tenth of what I’ve been doing since my last post.

I finished the back sides of the Sam and Dean shirts this morning and I meant to post a quick pic while they were drying, but then I got drunk and forgot. :/ So I’ll have the nicer, finished product pictures within the next day or so.

A couple shirts I’m making for some friends. I had to cut the Dean stencil three times because my freezer paper just decided it didn’t want to stick AT ALL (he’s just too pretty to cooperate I guess), but I think it was worth it. I’ll probably end up using all of my new silver paint before the end of the month, but it’s so pretty I just want to use it for everything!
