I will be attending a handful of cons with friends this year, but will likely not be selling except possibly for 2 days at Okashi-con, if even that. I was not accepted into any convention that I could reasonably make, but online sales at my etsy and storenvy are still going on. Next up is probably A-kon and Fanexpo in Dallas, definitely Anime Expo in Los Angeles and Okashi-con in Austin, then possibly Animefest in Dallas and Anime Weekend Atlanta. Hope to see you guys there!

Hello everybody, just wanted to remind everyone I still have like 400 button parts that need using up, so I am offering absolutely free, no cost whatsoever, button badges of MXTX (a Chinese webnovel author) characters. The only caveat, there are only 2 characters I’ve drawn so far. If you like Qi Rong (original design) from Heaven Official’s Blessing or Xue Yang (promo design) from Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation, you’re in luck! If you don’t… understood, they’re terrible characters. Please use the contact form below to get your buttons. Also just wanted to show off my new manicure.
Hey all, my tictail will be closing down eventually in April, so I restarted my storenvy! However the discount b-grade/damaged buttons are only on etsy and tictail at this time. But you can find my coveted OPM charms at storenvy, lol.
In the meantime, check out some new(ish) art I did for this year’s Aselia-con in Texas. I was not able to sell in artist alley because I can never get Fridays off, but I will be there Sunday to give out free b-grade tales of buttons! (Not of these characters below, though.)
Check out my latest acrylic, double-sided chibis of Osakabehime and Yan Qing from Fate Grand Order videogame/series! The first few orders will get a free 2 1/4″ button badge of the matching portraits as well.
Be sure to check out my Etsy for a new listing of discounted damaged/sample buttons with free US shipping.
At tictail, I couldn’t add free shipping so it’s only $0.25 for each damaged button lol, with free shipping after $20 for the entire store.
Both sites have temporary discounts on shipping on both domestic and international purchases and freebies will be added as long as I have something relevant.
Also, these 2 new designs of Chrom and Lucina from Fire Emblem Awakening will be added to the roster as well! If you haven’t already, check out my icon/button commission page for a special portrait for the holidays.
Check out the google docs link here if you want a reasonably priced button-badge or icon commission (portrait style).
Please read the terms and conditions before submitting your request. Please note all button badges will be in the style of the current Fire Emblem ones I have up on my shop or this sample page, there will be no chibis or couples or extensive backgrounds like in the other buttons. Unless the character is a chibi already, I guess.
I would like to have all commissions sent in by November 30 so I can finish and mail the button badges (to US addresses only) by December 25th. International packages would arrive after December 25th. Of course if you are not paying for the badges, you should get the high res jpg of your icon by Christmas or maybe before New Year’s, which still counts!
Finally watching some new anime this season, including “Cells at Work” on crunchyroll! It amuses me since I have a medical field background, but also it’s very funny with memorable character designs and voice acting! Here are the 2 side characters that show up the most often lol, Killer T cell and Macrophage.
Heyo, I worked on a monthly challenge for August which was #outfitaugust! Basically draw a figure wearing outfits fitting the prompts for the day for 31 days. I didn’t get anywhere close to finished, but I used my original character from years ago, a succubus warrior named Eisheth, and it helped me work out some kinks in drawing outfits, so an overall positive learning experience, if not by much lol. Here are the first 11 days (skipping the most difficult prompts as per usual.)
If you are interested in trying out Japanese fashion and are local please check out my sister collaboration site, Atelier x Empire here!
Hey all, I just updated my etsy and tictail webshops with my new merch! Everything is on limited supply now, so please make your purchases before I run out. Coming soon are my original artworks and more jewelry and paintings.
