In case you missed my most recent uploads, I'd like to show you the designs I've currently got running in Open Squish~

Squishable Spider Concepts by RacieB
Spider Activities by RacieB

If you aren't familiar with Squishables, they're huge spherical stuffed animals which come in a massive variety of species. The company holds biweekly contests called Open Squish where designers can submit their ideas for new Squishables to be voted on, and the winners will be produced for real!

I entered the above designs in the current contest, which has one week left. My jumping spider is REALLY CLOSE to winning and getting made! It must end with an average score of at least 3.9 for this to happen though, and that's where I need your help.

If you'd like to see either of these designs developed as actual plush, please vote 5 on my Rainbow Jumping Spider (Maratus robinsoni) and Mexican Redknee Tarantula (Brachypelma smithi)!

I just realized, I never shared my personal (non-Daily Denjuu) blog on here, so if you're interested in that here you go~

Also, sketch commissions are still on hold but if anybody is interested in enormous plush Furrets I can open commissions for those soon after I figure out better shipping options. Anybody love amazing smushy Furrets?? I can make them in other sizes / fabrics too.

First things first - New commissions are currently on hiatus, as I'm working on redoing my pricing for sketches (and offer more tiers of stuff like I used to.)

I'd also like to start making adoptables available, if there's any interest in that! If it sounds good to you: What kinds of creatures would you like to see from me? What kind of pricing scheme do you think would be best (eg flat rate first-come-first-served, auctions, etc.)?

Today is the last day to vote in dA's Mythical Creature t-shirt design contest - I'd greatly appreciate it if you took a look at my entries and vote if you like them! I'm not going to be home today to watch how things are going, unfortunately :(

:flame: 1 - Phoenix Crossbones
I wanted to represent a phoenix in a way it's rarely seen, before its resurrection. I think they're cool enough that they can still be majestic as a pile of smoldering bones~ :mwahaha:

:flame: 2 - Inspiration has struck!!
When I was little, the things that most inspired my art were nature, mythology, and video games! Growing up in the 80s and 90s, this mostly meant a lot of NES and MS-DOS - so the low-bit aesthetic just feels like fun to me :meow:

If you like either design, you can vote for them by hitting the "I Want This!" button under the usual Favorites button on the deviation page. Remember: you can vote for as many contest entries as you'd like, and voting ends on July 31st!

Thanks for taking a look~
NOTE! Commissions are Still Open, and I'm not limited to just Pokémon! I'm happy to draw monsters of all kinds, including fanmon / fakemon, Denjuu, Bugs, Dinos, Foodons, Monster Rancher, Digimon, original characters, whatever you would like.

What is Being Offered:
$2 for your favorite monster in this style! Full color and about 500x500 px transparent-background PNGs.

I'm also offering Mystery Dungeon-style portraits like this and this for $4.

If you would like another type of commission, just ask and I'll be happy to work something out. Please note, however, that I do not accept dA points. I've been asked a few times about this recently, and I simply have no use for them. Commission money goes to groceries! For that reason, I cannot accept most* trades either.
*Trade exceptions include stuff like a small custom plush for an equivalent amount of sketches, or things to that effect.

I'm curious as to what the most wanted species / items are so I can have some idea as to what to stock in the store.

Species I can paint include any tarantula species you can think of; a few that have been popular are Brachypelma smithi, Avicularia versicolor, and Haplopelma lividum. There are tons of really spectacularly-colored spiders I haven't gotten a chance to paint yet though, so if you'd like to see your favorites please tell me!

Items include (but are not limited to) earrings, keychains, phone charms, pins, the charm on its own to attach to a bracelet / necklace / etc, or just the spiders by themselves (like a little painted toy / figure.) I think the keychains and phone charms are probably the most wanted but feedback would be greatly appreciated.

So, anything you would like to see? Some of my ideas included spiderling-/adult-color earring sets, random collectible species figures, etc.

I'm currently taking commissions for… (Spiderings!) I need some sort of income while I continue to look for a Real Job™, plus painting up little spiders has the added benefit of being an incredible stress-reliever.

While my older ones were made of Sculpey over a wire armature, these new Spiderings are premade plastic toys which have been handpainted and varnished. This gives them several advantages over the sculpted ones, as they're quicker to make and much sturdier since their legs bend and do not break. They are also cheaper, at $15 a pair (or $7.50 per spider.)

Spiderings can be made into:
- earrings
- keychains
- cell phone straps
- pins
- charms for necklaces / bracelets
- just left as cute little painted spider figures
- ..etc?!

Just ask and I can probably do it!

Below are examples of some tarantula species I've already done, but I'm not limited to the ones shown here. Pairs of earrings can also be matching or mismatched, for example you could get two Redknees or a Redknee and a Pinktoe, etc.

Examples:… (- Group shot -)… (Mexican Redknee 1)… (Mexican Redknee 2)… (Trinidad Dwarf Tiger Rump)… (Chaco Gold Stripe)… (Cobalt Blue)… (Chilean Rosehair)… (Antilles Pinktoe 1)… (Antilles Pinktoe 2)… (Colombian Purple Bloom)

Your commissions supply me with treasure, experience points, and SPIDER FOOD.

I had my first job interview ever yesterday, and I'm pretty sure I bombed it completely with a lot of nervous pauses and rambling half-answers... how am I expected to know what to do in a bunch of retail scenarios when self-employment since 2003 is the extent of my work experience ==? I applied as a cashier, not a salesperson, if I'm expected to have those skills I'd have to be trained for it... three other people with retail experience interviewed right before me anyway, for the same job, so...

It felt like some sort of weird courtship ritual, like I was expected to come in and puff up a bunch of fake eye spots or something, except I've still got pinfeathers. How come I can't just say, "I want a job, I'm interested in this company, I have these skills."

I guess I'm wondering, how did your first interview go? Also, how old were you at the time? I'd feel better if I was like 18 but I'm 24, how the hell does that look to employers -_-
