I decided to open a Red Bubble shop so I’m able to sell prints and tshirts of some of my paintings.
If you aren’t familiar with RedBubble.com, it’s a website where artists can sell copies of their art, on-demand.
I can now have my “Mirror Mirror Spock” painting on a tshirt! How cool is that?
I’m pretty tickled! I only make a percent of each sale, but how cool would that be to know someone was walking around in one of your paintings or illustrations?

I’ve also now added a Society6 Shop. So if you have a preference you now have a choice. Society6 seems to have a bigger variety of products you can order, but RedBubble looks like they give the artists a bigger cut of the sales.
I recently got an airbrush, yay! I’ve been wanting one for a while. After much research, hemming and hawing I decided on the Iwata Revolution.
It is a gravity fed, airbrush with a dual-action trigger. I don’t have a compressor yet, so I’m using cans of compressed air for now. I can tell I have a lot to learn about airbrushes, my first few attempts were a mess. Now however I’m beginning to get a better feel for the proper amount of pressure, how to adjust it on the trigger and on the can of air.
I have painted my first piece with my airbrush, so, here are some pics!
I sculpted this pleasant fellow late in 2011, here are some pics of him in progress.
I used me new airbrush skills to paint and shade his skin, his teeth, eyes & horns were done with a regular old brush. I think airbrushes and I are going to have a long and happy relationship!
Well as you may know by now cookies and cakes are my latest passion! I’ve even made a site for them, although I might make a full-blown site one day, right now it’s just a blog. Check it out: That’s Pretty Sweet!
