With my tail between my legs I've gone back to good old Etsy. Tried Storenvy for a while but I didn't sell a thing on there, and wasn't very impressed with some of it's aspects.
SO! I have more stuff available in my Etsy shop: www.etsy.com/uk/shop/Bakenekoy… there's loads of stuff in there now, including my new masks!
Pick up a nasty, creepy skull mask just in time...for...Christmas.....
New shop!!! bakenekoya.storenvy.com
I decided to give Storenvy a try as I'm selling nothing through Etsy at the moment. Right now I have some fat cats, snooty cats, Bartleby Von Fishersnoots, and all new Eliza figures up for sale, with more stuff coming soon!
I have tables booked at two comic conventions this year where I will be selling my work.

I went on holiday to Japan... again, apart from the bloody mosquitoes it was amazing, we did so much stuff I can't even remember all of it, thankfully we took about 3000 photos. Just a few of them are here kessen-chu.deviantart.com/gall… for your viewing pleasure.
Thought Bubble 2012 was brilliant, had a great time, sold a load of cat sculptures, got drunk, met some great people, and bought some cool stuff, the best of which being Amazing Everything: The Art of Scott C, and a print of his work called Rainbow Feast, if you haven't seen his stuff you absolutely have to check it out!
More cats for sale!!! Finally I have more figures for sale in my Etsy shop: www.etsy.com/shop/Bakenekoya?r… including my new Super lucky...Fat? Version 2, he's even cuter and fatter than his predecessor, so cute and fat as soon as you see him you'll immediately be sick everywhere!
Thanks to everyone who stopped by my gallery or gave me faves/watches, I really appreciate it
For anyone that is interested, and lives in the area, I'm going to be doing a sculpture demo at Hobbycraft in Altrincham, Cheshire, on Sunday 23rd September 11am-3pm. There will also be the chance to win one of my sculptures in a raffle, the proceeds will be going to Together for short lives, a uk based charity helping families with terminally ill children.
I can't believe the awesome reaction I've had from my Adventure Time fan art, I've literally had thousands of activities on my DA account over the last couple of days, it's totally bonkers!
I will try to reply to you all but it might take me a while Thank you everyone for taking the time to look at my work and for all the fantastic comments/faves/watches I really appreciate it, you're all mathematical!!!
Anyone needing mould making and casting supplies in the u.k go here www.tomps.com
They have a great range of products at good prices. They are really nice friendly people and are great if you have any technical problems or need advice on a product. Can't recommend them enough!
...they're not paying me to say this btw they just really helped me out recently so I thought I'd share with all of you good people.
Thought Bubble 2012!

I've finally got around to making a web site, just a simple one for now, www.bakenekoya.com
and Facebook: www.facebook.com/pages/Bakenek…
and Twitter: twitter.com/#!/Amys_Bakenekoya
come and say hello!
Unfortunately the company I buy resin from changed their formula recently making it no longer fully compatible with paint, No one was aware of this problem at the time I bought it, so I only discovered this after hours of casting, sanding and painting.
It's hardly affected the quality at all, the only problem is that small tacky areas of paint may appear.
So I'm knocking £20 off the price of these masks, I only have three of these available right now but once they're gone I'll be casting more (from a resin that won't have this problem!) and they'll be back up to £50.
If you are interested they are for sale in my Etsy shop: www.etsy.com/shop/Bakenekoya?r…
If you have any questions feel free to send me a note or email me at email@example.com
Thanks for looking!
