Hey guys! I have two print giveaways happening for the Holidays, one on Tumblr and one on Facebook, check em out! I'm giving away two 13x19 signed prints of this piece: Silent Dreams by Andoledius

Tumblr:


Facebook:


Good luck! =D
Hey! There has been a lot of buzz about this lately, so I thought I would make a journal entry based around it.

I've heard a lot of people tell me lately that they have gotten my artwork tattoo'd, thank you! I cannot tell you how happy it makes me to hear you enjoy my work on such a personal level. Most, if not all of you have contacted me and asked permission first which is truly something I have to thank you for. (I know a lot of other people who have NOT asked, and its saddening, in a way).

But here are some things I would like to bring to the table that have me a little concerned.

To start, I have not been charging individuals who want to get my piece tattoo'd. If you as a person see my work, fall in love with a piece, and love that enough to have it a part of your body, that's amazing!

But I say individuals because I HAVE had people messaging me asking to put my design in their tattoo shops to sell for profit. this is not okay. Never have I accepted someones request to place my design in any of their shops, for any one to get tattoo'd. My throat goes into my stomach when I think about people getting my work tattoo'd on them, without knowing the background, who I am or even my name.

I have heard of people who have seen strangers, seemingly with my work tattoo'd who have NO idea who drew that picture, and have to be told it is from me.

So, my biggest concern right now is the integrity of my work. I want people to enjoy it and be inspired by it, but that it means I have to give up in my name in the process, I don't think I can do that.

So here is a HUGE favor I am asking of you guys:

please , if you ever see my work in a tattoo shop, or if someone you know has had it tattoo'd without at least knowing my name, it would mean the world to me to find out at least where it came from. That way you can contact me so I can ask them to remove it, or (if you would like to) contact them yourself ask that they stop profiting from it.

It's a low, dirty thing for a shop to steal someones work and then charge someone else for that design.
Hey Everyone!

First off, thanks for the lovely birthday wishes/gifts!! :heart: They are all amazing, and while I haven't quite had time to reply to everyone I want you to know how much I appreciate it. :) My birthday was a really awesome one. I cannot believe i'm already 23. Bring on Adulthood!

In other news:
I've been quite quite busy as of late, getting ready for an upcoming March show in LA at Wonderland Gallery ( www.wonderlandla.net/ ) that showcases work inspired by innovative and hard-working women. :) If you haven't already seen my piece (based on Helen Keller) you can view it in my DA gallery ORRR head on over to my brand-spanking new Art Tumblr corinnereid.tumblr.com/ ! its depressingly empty right now, but I'll hopefully be able to reveal some upcoming projects soon.


ANNNDDD as usual I have a shameful self promotion for a contest i've entered. Its the 3rd Ward Portfolio contest, the winner of which gets a year-long residency in NYC, a gallery show, and some prize money! I know i'm always on my DA begging you guys to do stuff for me (and, guilty as charged once again), but this residency would be REALLY COOL since i've never really been to NY for a long period of time. And creating art there would be the BIGGEST PLUS EVER.

The link is over at rinfish.artistswanted.org/open… So please vote! Tell your friends to vote! This is the last night its available for voting and I'll need all the support I can get. =)


YOU GUYS ARE ALL WONDERFUL. :heart:
Hey Gang! Long time no journal entries, sheesh!

Things have been crazy on my end, graduating this may and surviving off my new (and exhausting) job as a dog walker, while juggling a part-time art career is no easy task! How is everyone on here? I feel as though DA has become a shadow of what it once was :(. I still pay attention to you though! I absolutely love all the amazing comments and notes I get, every day. Its amazing!

I have to admit, I have an ulterior motive for posting! I just submitted a new Design to threadless t-shirts, and while its already gotten some great reviews, I thought i'd post over here to show you and maybe get some support (of course, only if you like the design! I'd never want someone to give a false vote on my account). It's a little something I drew up for my colleges past Christmas card, and thought it looked pretty neat on a shirt too. :)

The design can be found over at www.threadless.com/submission/…

If people like this enough, I'll totally post it to DA, too. :)


OH. And if anyone is curious, the new Spectrum 18 just hit the shelves a little while ago, you guys will be able to find my piece Wild Dog by Andoledius , along with a buttload of amazing artists (seriously, my piece looks lame in comparison). www.google.com/products/catalo…



Hmm...I think thats all for now. I promise i'll update with more of my rabble more often. Otherwise, you can find me over on my terrible twitter account twitter.com/#!/Rinfishe , and on my facebook page www.facebook.com/pages/Corinne…

over and out!

Well, you did it!! 'Wild Dog' is a t-shi

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 21, 2011, 9:07 AM



THATS RIGHT!!! All your voting and incredible support has made it possible for Wild Dog by Andoledius to become a t-shirt sold on THREADLESS. YES!!! :heart:

I am so happy about the results, and the money i received towards the design is making those annoying payments in my life that much easier (such as framing and sending out my pictures for the upcoming SOI gallery show, so expensive!)

Here is a link to the T-shirt: www.threadless.com/product/272…

You guys are awesome, just awesome, i dont know what to say :heart:



Alsoooo

I'll use this journal to also announce that two of my pieces Wild Dog by Andoledius and The Massacre by Andoledius were selected to appear in the 2011 Society of Illustrators Student Show in NYC! You can find the link here: www.societyillustrators.org/At… I'll be attending the opening in May, and the admission is free. If anyone lives in the area, you should attend, see some great work, and maybe/possibly watch me faint if I actually win an award!



Also also I will be attending Anime Boston 2011 in April with :iconcockrocket: and :icononeeyedrobot: , so look for our table! I'll be selling lots of prints and buttons, and basically anything else i can think of.

This year is turning out to be busier every week!

Hey guys, I am in need of your help :(

Journal Entry: Sun Sep 5, 2010, 1:30 PM



I hope most of you have clicked on this journal with the notion that it does NOT involve, money, because you would be correct.

Actually, I've been having lots of trouble finding content for my semester long senior thesis project, and it occurred to me today that i could just ask you wonderful people =)

My project is (the main basis of it) is going to be illustrating Chinese short stories. Being in a town with a very small library, and with not many viable sources on the internet, i was wondering if anyone could help me find some interesting, roughly 2 page long short stories :) Im up for anything, folklore and legend, children's literature, horror stories, you name it. even if you know of a book that has good content, feel free to through it my way too, and ill see if i can buy it :)

my main problem right now is the length. a lot of stories seem to be only a paragraph or so, and my teacher is not accepting anything less than a page.


If there isnt a lot of chinese literature out there, i am willing to switch over to another Asian culture. so if you just happen to have a bucket load of japanese literature on hand, ill be glad to take it :)


also

i should mention that i dont plan on taking books from you guys, if you can just provide the title, author, ect, then im sure i can find it on the internet somewhere :)


thank you so much :dummy:

...please look in my shoutboard FIRST before sending me a note about my prices/ if my comissions are open. I like getting notes, but its frustrating when i have to copy/paste my shout board every day.

im going to say this in bold just in case people dont feel like reading

MY COMMISSIONS ARE CLOSED AND COMMISSION INFO CAN BE FOUND IN MY SHOUTBOARD

COMISSIONS/(shameless advertising!)

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 15, 2010, 7:57 PM



Yeah i bet you all thought i was offering comissions.


well i might be, later, if i cant find a job. but for now i wanted to show you all that oneeyedrobot is comissioning these adorable chibi/iconic/simplistic designs of YOU or your character, for only 5$

FACEBOOK ADVENTURES 01 by oneeyedrobot

i was the one who convinced her to put these up there because she did one for free for me, and damn i woulda paid 5$ for it so i dont know who wouldnt :)

Seriously go check it out! its worth your money =D


ON OTHER NOTES

i am going to France this summer and HOPEFULLY japan as well if i can get my paperwork/money in on time. This means I'm going to need some poor sucker to hire me for two months so i can save up enough money, then quit and forever ruin my job reputation in the non-art world. If it doesnt work out, i dont know what i will do for comissions. i dont even know how to charge anymore since my art took such a strange turn. we'll see :)
