My Online Shop Grand Opening…Again!

Online Shop

In February, 2021, I will be posting all of my artwork into my online shop for my grand (re)opening.

Why February and not January? I keep finding more things that I need, like having boxes for shipping. Pretty important! I’m going to do it, no matter the circumstances. I’ve grown tired of waiting around. As long as I have the basic items necessary to ship packages, I’m going to do it this time!

So, in February, everything’s up for grabs!

Changes Are Happening!

Changes are happening all over the site, starting with the addition of my shop page with sub-menu links to my off-site shops like Threadless and Society6. The only products that have been added are my books, located on lulu.com, and will be all you see for the time being until I begin creating and posting works to the shop.

It’s happening, folks! Everything is finally coming together and my shop is beginning to take shape.

Resolutions or No Resolutions?

I have never been good at keeping new years resolutions. For as long as I can remember making them, I’ve never followed through with one. Too many things happen in a year that change my plans and I end up going in a different direction or I just don’t do it.

But, as the holidays come to a close and a new year is just around the corner, I find myself thinking about the things I hope to accomplish in the year 2020. So, do I make resolutions?

I don’t think I will.

Video Blog??

In recent months I’ve contemplated starting a vlog, or video blog, on YouTube. It’s something I’ve been interested in doing for a while, but my anxiety seems to always get the best of me. I can come up with a million ways why I shouldn’t do it or why it wouldn’t be beneficial to anyone, but I’ve made a promise to myself to face my fears and to do the things that I’ve been too afraid to do, and if I’m being honest, it scares the hell out of me.

I Failed!

Yep! That’s right. I’m a failure…

There are so many things I wanted to complete by the end of 2018 and I didn’t finish any of them!

Resolutions for 2018:

  • Lose weight
    • This has been a complete failure every year. I make it a habit to tell myself that I’m going to lose weight by the end of the year and it never works out.

Off To School!

For most parents, their kids are heading back to school.

But in about a week or so our little boy, Eli, will be heading off to school to attend his very first day.

We’re both excited and scared, wondering how he will do without us around and surrounded by new people.

We also worry about how he will develop and grow. If he will be able to learn as well as the other children.

So, I am looking into different home-based learning materials to be able to teach him some basic concepts and keep his mind stimulated. Continue reading Off To School!

Artist Area: My Dream Studio

Getting to know a little about who I am and what I look for in an artist studio…

 


 

When I think of the studio that I want the most, I see a lot of space.

I love space.

Big room. High ceilings. Even a loft to look out over my studio from while sipping on my $8 dollar La Moneda Reserva Malbec (you should try it)… Continue reading Artist Area: My Dream Studio

Focusing on A Healthy Life

There’s nothing I want more than to always be here for my son.


As an artist, I sit on my butt a lot and I usually don’t like moving from my chair, especially when I have ideas flowing.

But I have constant problems with lower back pain, and I know without a doubt that it’s caused from sitting on my butt all day long.

So, my wife and I have been looking for an easy diet and exercise program or book that would help get our lives on track to a healthier life, and there’s one book that helped tremendously. Continue reading Focusing on A Healthy Life

What I’m Up To

Not a whole lot has changed really. Just cruising through life the best that I know how.

I’m still writing and drawing on my books, and I’m still creating artwork for my online stores, though I haven’t posted any new art yet.

I’ve been busy with work and trying to save some money to buy more art supplies, which is really hard nowadays it seems like.

I’ve been struggling with the decision to give up art for while in order to get things lined back up and save some cash. I don’t buy a whole of materials and what I do buy goes quickly, especially when my ideas are coming faster than I can get them onto a canvas or into Photoshop. Continue reading What I’m Up To

Art Materials — My Go-To Painting Tools

ACRYLIC PAINTING

Campfire
“Campfire” by Michael Daugherty

Painting is something I’ve been teaching myself over the last few years and am just now really starting to get a hang of.

I’m still searching for my own style and voice.

Up until I started painting my go-to medium was pencil and paper, then later came painting with acrylics and watercolors, and finally, I got into digital painting when I purchased my Wacom Intuos Comic graphics tablet, with which I do most of my artwork on nowadays.

I began using acrylic paint mainly due to the fact that it was cheaper than oil paint. But, after using acrylics, I found that I loved using that medium and just stuck with it, and I don’t see myself switching to oil paint anytime soon. Continue reading Art Materials — My Go-To Painting Tools

Art Materials — My Go-To Drawing Tools

I know a lot of people have a hard time deciding on which art supplies to use for drawing, thinking they need the most expensive supplies out there. But, in reality, all you need is a yellow #2 pencil (mine are black), a good eraser, and some paper.

But most of the time my artwork is digital, meaning I use a graphics tablet to draw inside editing software, like Photoshop, directly onto my computer. There are few graphics tablets out there, so the best advice I can give you is to do your research and find one that you would feel comfortable with and also fits within your budget if you have one.

Read This! But Not Really.

Anxiety.

I hate it.

There’s nothing I hate more about myself than fearing things. Mainly people.

You know that jittery feeling when you’ve had too much caffeine, or you’re walking down the hallway to your first job interview? Yeah, that feeling. That’s the feeling I have when I meet new people, or I have to speak or stand in front of people, or even when my name is called out loud in a group of people.

My heart sinks into the pit of my gut and I start sweating. My muscles tense up and my heart begins its all-out assault against the inside of my chest. Continue reading Read This! But Not Really.

New Online Store!

Hiteto! Nehowaselap’wi yanoli! 
(HahTeeToh! NeeHohWehSeeLehP’Wah YehNohLah!)
Hello! Happy to see you!

Redbubble is a new online store that I’ve opened up to sell my artwork. It’s very similar to Society6 in that my art can be put on various products that the site sells; apparel, device cases, stickers, wall art, home decor, stationery, bags, and gifts.

As of right now, my Redbubble online store is empty until I can start populating the site with my artwork. It will take some time, but keep a lookout for my art to start popping up.

It’s an extra site to get my art out into the world!

I’m also looking into Etsy for selling some of my canvas pieces, but I’m not sure yet. So, if you have any suggestions, please feel free to contact me through email or social, which can be found on my CONTACT page.

Neyiwa! S’kitinoke kaniks’kola!
(NeeYahWeh! S’KahTahNohKee KehNahkS’KohLeh!)
Thank you! I hope to see you again!

Punk Native Sketchbook!

As someone who is constantly buying sketchbooks, I figured it would be pretty cool to have a custom made sketchbook of my own. It is for sale ONLY on lulu.com for $11.99. It is 150 pages with a spiral coil binding for easy use. As I’m writing this, mine is in the mail and on its way! I hope it turns out pretty good and I can keep coming back and ordering me one when I need a replacement.
