We are pretty excited as we head into the final stretch of the Purrmaids Kickstarter!  We are fully funded, and have unlocked multiple stretch goals, so there are lots of goodies!  We hope we might unlock enamel pins, sticker sheets, and if we're lucky... a brand new Purrmaid!

Check it out!
My Deep Sea Purrmaids Kickstarter has reached 70% of funding, and has slowed down a bit but I'm sure we can fully fund soon and start moving on towards stretch goals!

www.kickstarter.com/projects/k…

The sooner we fully fund, the sooner we can start to focus on extra goodies I hope to release!
Check it out and please share if you want!
The Purrmaids are excited to announce that www.Purrmaids.com is once again open for business!!!  We had to redo the whole site so it was down for a few weeks, but it looks newer and better than ever!

We ship worldwide, and your Purrmaid will be wrapped up into a lovely Purrmaid egg and sent to your address!

More content including charms, prints and more will be put on the site throughout the week!
[Facebook Link click here!]

My girl, Gandalf the Pink has become a part of a competition where the best pet will get a $250 custom plush made of them!  Gandalf has been my muse and inspiration behind Purrmaids and to be able to take her to shows with me would absolutely make my constant travels more enjoyable!  That said, she's up against a very popular goat who has links to THOUSANDS of breeders, which I just can't compete with!!

Please go vote for Gandalf if you have a Facebook by clicking LOVE (not like, which votes for the goat) and give me the ability to take Gandalf with me to shows and events!  She's currently only ahead by TWO VOTES and we have 2 hours left!

Edit: I mixed up EST with PST!  I have until Midnight, so a couple extra hours x3
Just an update journal to clear the one from July off my page.

I've been super busy getting all of my Purrmaids out to everyone for the holidays!  Tonight is probably your last chance to order for Christmas, so please check out www.Purrmaids.com if you'd like to get some! (the 16th is normally the last chance to get Christmas delivery, so all orders today the 15th will go out tomorrow!)

Otherwise, I've had an amazing year, and look forward to sharing way more art once I finally ship these out! (shipped about 1200 this year!)  Thank you everyone for being the bright point in an otherwise drab 2016.  I look forward to seeing people in 2017!

Remember, if you want to check out my schedule and where to find me, you can find it on the info section of my website!
www.KikiDoodle.com 

I go to about 8 to 12 conventions a year, mostly on the west coast. :3  If you'd like to see me at a certain show, WRITE TO THE SHOW!  If a show gets enough interest, they may contact me, or invite me as a guest, which makes it much easier to hit shows out of driving distance.

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year if you don't hear from me by then!
Hey!

So next week I'll be heading out to Comic-con San Diego!  I'm really excited to be there again, and will have a lot of cool items including daily button giveaways! (But only in really small quantities, so please swing by asap!)

My table will be L-06!

Also good news!  The final Purrmaid prototype for the Siamese Betta has been finished, and I should VERY HOPEFULLY have it on display at Comic-con!  YAY!

Other than that... it's been a VERY STRESSFUL WEEK!
Anthrocon was amazing, but I came home feeling very under the weather with a sniffle and some VERY badly pulled muscles in my shoulder and back, and as soon as I got feeling well again, my printer BRICKED on me!  After hours taking it apart last night, we realized a motor burnt out, so had to rush order a new one.  So much for me getting everything done early this year :p  We'll be packaging prints well into the morning of Comic-con.

On the bright side... guess we finally upgraded our printer! :p
SO!  I've been a little slow on announcements here due to HOW BUSY I'VE BEEN AHH!

First of all, ANTHROCON!

I'll be there!  This is my first Anthrocon and first show where I'm pretty close to the east coast, so definitely come say hi!  I'm not sure if I'll make money after all of my expenses, but I hope I do :p  This is a test to see if traveling shows are worth it.

Let me know if you will be there and want to request any certain prints from me because my stock will be SUPER limited at this show.  I just can't afford to bring all the things I normally do!

Also, commissions will likely ALSO be super limited.  I've been rather exhausted this month with all the things I've been doing so this is going to be a fun show for me.  If you want a commission, try to get there first thing in the morning!

And... PURRMAIDS!

www.kickstarter.com/projects/k…
Purrmaids are about 300% funded AND we've raised enough for the 2nd species... the Betta Fish Siamese Purrmaid!

I'll actually have a Purrmaid with me in person at Anthrocon for people to visit with :3

With less than 10 days left on the campaign consider pledging!  If I raise $24,500 we'll fund a THIRD plush which backers get to vote on... HOORAY!

I look forward to seeing people at Anthrocon and other shows!

Purrmaid FAQ:
Purrmaid species, and can I create one!??LINK TO MY KICKSTARTER FIRST, THOUGH, BAM!
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kikidoodle/the-purrmaid-a-mermaid-cat-plush
(We've unlocked Coloring books for ALL backers, now, YAY! And getting ever closer to the 3rd species, which will be decided via vote!)
---------------
So, the juicy stuff!
It's been brought up a few times, and more recently a little more energetic than normal... Purrmaids!  What are some of the legalities of them, and do I, Kiki, now own 100% of the rights to the concept or name of Purrmaid?
Short answer:  Of course not, silly.  You can't own the concept of a Mermaid Cat, and if I tried to pretend I could, legally, I'd be silly, too.
Long answer:  There actually ARE legal things in place for MY Purrmaids, but those are more to do with legal protections as well as to protect myself from someone who would do something like produce replicas or near replicas of MY purrmaid designs, especially in plush form.
I fully expect to see a lot

I fully expect to see a lot more Purrmaids swimming around the Internets now that my Kickstarter has taken off!  BUT, I also wasn't the first person to ever come up with the idea of a Mermaid cat.  While my idea indirectly resulted from the silly mermaid outfit my sphynx wore to a dog costume contest (Which she WON!), there are plenty of silly mermaid items that have existed before me, of which I took inspiration (and then built upon that!) as I designed.  My goal was to create something very ME based of a lot of my silly ideas and doodles, but to also look at what had come before and try to build something that, to me at least, was taking the concept in a new and fun direction!

Now here's the fun part:  Purrmaids as a species!
Adoptables are the New Big Thing, and while it's possible I may make a few Purrmaids for adopts, let's talk about how my species of Purrmaids relates to the scene of creating fan characters, fan art, and the like!

I actively encourage it!

I think one of the best things about artistic communities is the ability of people to share their love of items through art and fanart, and because the concept of mermaid cats is so VAST, there is just SO much fun people can have with the concept!  I'm actively working on building my universe and will excitedly be sharing more information as I continue to develop them AND Purrmaids.com (which will go live soon!)

So, if you want to create your own Purrmaid, please DO, and even better, link me to it!  I'm trying to actively share or reblog any Purrmaid art that's been shared with me!  I want to spread the Purrmaid love to everyone!  It's way too fun to pretend to hoard it to myself (And like I said, I can't actually OWN the concept of mermaid cats even if I wanted to!)

Please go out and have fun!  Also please keep sharing Purrmaid feedback with me!  I've had so many great interactions lately, which just excites me to design even more!  In the meanwhile, I'll use this journal to share some of the Purrmaids that've been shared with me!

First of all thank you EVERYONE for all of the super kind birthday wishes!  I'm sorry if I don't respond to them all, as I've been super busy on work and Kickstarter!

www.kickstarter.com/projects/k…
And speaking of... we've surpassed our stretch goal #1!!!
Siamese Betta Purrmaid Revealed by kiki-doodle
This means that Betta Purrmaids are UNLOCKED!  The plush is in full production and I've already left feedback on the first prototype.  I'll be sharing images soon as they become ready!

Our next Purrmaid plush goal is a little higher, but we have some other fun stretch goals on the way!!!
I can't thank you guys enough for sharing and helping spread the Purrmaid word!
www.kickstarter.com/projects/k…

Purrmaids is 100% funded!!!

But that doesn't mean the journey is over!  Keep sharing the kickstarter or making pledges, as if we reach our next stretch goal, there will be a very special surprise!

The SS Purr has set its sights on the next depth, as there have been plenty of stories of a new species of purrmaids, ready to be discovered!

Announcement: PURRMAIDS (Kickstarter LIVE!) by kiki-doodle

Purrmaids are ready for adoption, so please pledge and back today!

Purrmaids are super soft, and HUGE!  They're almost 16" in height, and every one has a real bell!
There's a budding mythology about them building, and I hope to share tons of new purrmaid facts and purrmaid discovers soon!

This has been my major project of the past 3 months, and I'm so excited to finally share it with the world!

Thank you so much for checking it out, and please spread the word!
I have a very special secret project I've been working on for the past few months... and it's ready to be revealed this weekend!

But Gandalf the Pink is very excited, and doesn't want to wait that long!

I'd love to do something a bit more interactive in these journals, so let me know if you have ideas.  I feel bad just adding clutter!  Maybe I can throw in art stories and WIPs that are normally just on my Twitter?
I did a cat coloring book with TICA, The International Cat Association!

It'll be available for digital download starting February 1st, however, if you're in the Portland area, I'll be at the Portland cat show this weekend doing signings from 12-1 PM at Dr. Elsey's booth if you'd like to catch me!

Just an fyi.  PROBABLY none of you will even notice it, but I'm purging a ton of old art and putting it into storage (So I can still share if it I want to)

This is a little unfortunate, as I actually wanted to KEEP most of my terrible old art so people could sift through it and see how I've grown, albeit I wanted them to remain in scraps.  Unfortunately, Deviantart feels it's a good idea to have the search function in everyone's gallery lift artwork up from your scraps, so if people searched "dragon" like the second line of artwork would be artwork I drew when I was 14, and all the embarrassing stuff that entails.

If there's anything missing that you some reason wanted to save? (oh god why) I'll pull it up for you.  I already cleared out anything from high school on down.  I had a surprising amount of art of ex highschool boyfriends that was WAY too visible for my liking, hahaa.

Edit:
OH NO!
It also searches up YOUR OLD JOURNALS!

Aka, things that never used to be archived.

No one, not even me, wants to read my old thoughts on things, so I'm also journal purging.  I apologize if you ever accidentally pulled up my old journals :p
