Until 2 days ago, I had been traveling with three close friends in Peru to gain reference photos and inspiration for new work. This was before COVID-19 was declared a Worldwide Pandemic and when we left there were only 5 cases in our state and only 6 reported cases in Peru. While abroad, we visited Machu Picchu, enjoyed the local culture, and overall had a wonderful trip until the effects of the global pandemic were very suddenly and stressfully made apparent. On the evening of March 15th, two days before our intended departure, the Peruvian government declared an immediate closure of its borders for 15 days. The four of us each had work and families that were waiting for us back home in the states and now we were facing a minimum of 15 days until we would be rejoined with them. Unpredictably facing two weeks in a foreign nation where you speak very little of the language, with no apparent way home and no secure place to stay is a really scary, stressful situation. We were given 24

*Storenvy Goodbye Sale 35% OFF. Code: GOODBYE*
After 4 years on Storenvy, I am switching to a different e-commerce platform. In the midst of this process there may be some short downtime or transitional periods where certain products are not available. To make up for this inconvenience, I am offering 35% off all products (excluding originals and pins) until July 4th. Product is limited right now during this change, so basically the stock that is in store will not be updated until we have our new e-commerce solution up and running. If you want to read more about this decision, I wrote a little about it b
I feel like I am always on and off with deviantART these days, but this past month has been especially quiet. My fiancé and I adopted a puppy from the local Humane Society on February 23rd and life has been chaos for over a month now.
I have definitely been neglecting messages, and for that I apologize; however, I always appreciate the continued support. I hope everyone else is doing well :)
Meet August! She is now a little 3 months old!
I'm not going to lie; it's been a rough couple of weeks. I won't bore you with details, but it has been very hard to focus or concentrate on projects; however, I have had a series of back to back conventions (EXPcon in Florida and BanzaiCon in Columbia) that have really lifted my spirits and have helped to get me excited for some new upcoming projects! I love vending in the artist alley because I get to meet so many amazing people and get outside of my comfort zone while drawing con sketches.
Convention season is officially over, and now I have time to sit and create. This year has been the year of testing cons, and boy oh boy, life on the r
Back in early 2016, I was approached by a children's book author with a manuscript. Now over a year later, that manuscript is almost a reality.
“Foxy the Fox and the Unexpected Treasure” written by Kathleen French and illustrated by me, is now available live on Kickstarter. This passion project has come to life, and Kathleen and I cannot wait to share it with you all. Foxy has been a dream of Kathleen for years, and after illustrating these characters for more than a year, I have come to love them as my own. It is amazing how the story has grown and evolved, while still keeping the same charm that made me fall in love with it the
Hi guys! I am so excited to share with you that I will be attending my first international show at the end of August! I will be at Fan Expo Canada in Toronto from August 31st-September 3rd. I cannot wait to see people there, AND it will be my biggest convention to date!
I apologize for the lack of updates. I have been traveling and moving (definitely not the best combination) and in the meantime have had some really unfortunate personal issues. Nothing crazy, but enough to keep me preoccupied. I can't wait to have some free time to actually work on art!
Anyway, I hope to see some people in Toronto in a few weeks!
Hi guys! I added pretty large selection of originals drawings to my storenvy shop this past week. A lot of these drawings are Originals from "Howl" and "Zooscape" and many of them are discounted well below the price of commissioned work.

Hey guys....goodness, how does one even journal? I feel like I haven't written a proper journal in over a year!
I wanted to catch everyone up on some summer updates. I've hit a little lull in convention season, so I finally have some time to sit down and work on new pieces, including commissions. For anyone interested in regular updates, I post regular updates on instagram @ katy_lipscomb. I also got a fancy, bendy tripod thing for filming livestreams, which I am really excited about!
This is what the rest of the summer looks like:
July 12-26th I will be in Canada in British Colombia (on an island off the coast of Victoria). I will be
