Starting from Scratch



After the move to Oregon my business came screeching to a halt. I had to leave most of my materials behind, bringing with me only Paint, Magic Sculpt, a Kiln, and some small toy platforms. For the first month or so that I was here in Oregon I was acclimating to a new environment, several relationships that I held dear which took a turn for the worst upon moving, having next to no money, and a pokemon TCG tournament within a 15 minute drive. Not to mention having to ween myself off my antidepressants, anti-anxiety, and sleepy time medications due to a lack of health insurance and leaving AZ right when my insurance was canceled. Needless to say it was a shit show.

Since then I have had the chance to get used to the lack of meds, I acquired a day job at Blick Art Materials for a steady income, came to terms with the lost relationships of some dear friends as well as my mother, started setting up an art studio based out of my apartment,  BECAME A LEGITIMATE BUSINESS, and have my kiln in working order. I'm set. now I just need the work to put it all to good use.  I'm currently finishing off some long outstanding large commissions and prize packages as well as putting together everyone's Patreon rewards.

In the months to come I will be changing things yet again to make fulfilling your rewards significantly easier.  I have a big batch of figures going out this week which should catch everyone up. Once these last few, long overdue, commissions are finished I'll be starting fresh and focusing more on ceramic and resin artwork.  I hope all is well, please feel free to reach out to me!
