Sorry for my lack of updates. Just been busy with events.
Brookings Harbor during Kite festival. "Did well"
Gold beach fairgrounds "slow"
Pirate Festival "did ok"
Grants Pass County Fair "EPIC FAIL!!" 4 days camping in my car and selling at the fairgrounds and i finish with only $15 in profits. Ill never do a fairgrounds again.

Im customizing my small SUV so i can sleep in it comfortably while im at events... the next one will be near portland. Its called the Shrewsbury renaissance festival. Located in Kings Valley next week 8th and 9th. 

ok bed time... nite x..x

Im on twitch! Feel free to join, watch, subscribe, like etc.  :)

My wifi is a bit weak but it works. If you get black screen try again or wait for my phone to reconnect. :)

Seems "Raptor Arts" just doesnt work as a business name and as such im getting no work. So maybe something along the lines of....

Clockwork gryphon
gryphon works
or something...
Throw ideas my way

Ill keep raptorarts but the other one is a backup...
and counting! I hate to say it but i guess i couldnt stick with DA as solidly as I had hoped. These adds are annoying... 
I am trying though. Ill post when i get the chance. 
Just did a couple conventions and now just trying to get things back in order. 

hope everyone is doing well. 
So im heading to medford comic con tomorow. Got to prepair everything for the big day saturday. :)

Lots to do still. 

Hope to see you guys there if your in the area :)
Im in need of a new tool which will help save my hands from the already bothersome arthritis which rears its ugly head once in a while. Its a laser printer. This will cut down the time from 6 hours to 2 hours and also help me get creative projects from my mind to the printer. I dont have much since its hard as hell to get a reliable job in Brookings, Oregon. Im considering moving to Eugene next year. Im saving up but with insurance as well as all the other bills im lucky to have what I have. Ive even started going through my collectibles to see what I can sell. 
Speaking of which if your in oregon this month Come on over to the Medford Comic con on the 28th and 29th at the public library! I have a booth there. Im selling my books, leather goods, deck boxes and you will see a spot for my comic books and other collections im selling. Ill be dressed up as boba fett... well mostly. Cant wear the jetpack or helmet as a merchant that and I had to sell my jetpack years ago to pay part of my rent :(  Anywho... I cant get all mopey here I have to smile and think of the future. So what do you say? Help out a fellow artist? Contribute anything you want. $1. or more. If you cant just share this with all your friends, thats free and only takes a minute :)
Heres the link to my Go found me page.
Hugs to all! :)
Thank you for reading this i know its a bit long. 
Well as I have heard Ive kind of overwhelmed you guys with books journals and grimoires so I will refrain from posting them all on here unless you want me to . 

In the meantime I have been hard at work on other projects. Wood shelf to display my books at a convention, leather pouches, magic wands, and today I made a light saber... so ill post that in a few minutes. 

Feedback is apprecieated.

Yea im starting to use Ebay again... tired of being drownd like a rat under all this stuff. If you like star wars or other kinds of collectibles check out my sale page.…
Run toward those little critters and scoop them up and hug them tight cause they need a good home to stay warm and well fed. :)

Well i found out yesterday my Aunt passed away early in the morning. She had a stroke the day prior. 
Hospice was back and forth for 3 years. 3 years she proved them wrong. She was a fighter. 
We may not have been super close but she was my aunt and she was family. She will be missed. 
Its been especially hard on my Uncle. Dad went up to see him today and took him out for lunch so he could talk for a bit. 

All in all things are moving along. 

It always hits hardest when you realize your down a family member and theres only 5 of us left. Im the youngest by several deccades. everyone else is in their 80's or hitting 90. 

So... yea... trying to get my mind off of things by focusing on my "Little Critters" sculptures... 
feel free to take a look at it and give feedback on the colors and such.. 

Love and hugs to all. 

Wow i cant believe its almost the 21'st 
My hatching day "dragon term" is this sunday. OMG time flies, wish i could LOL

I posted this in facebook and twitter for shits and giggles but hell why not... 

IF anyone wants to send a gift feel free to do so. I love Pocket Dragons and Windstone Dragons

DRAGONS!!!!!!!!!! Love dragons XD

Oh and visit my Facebook Art Page. I dont have that many viewers on there and would love to see it jump quite a bit higher than where its at.…
So ive been busy as a dragon cleaning his castle after a 1000 years of dust has settled LOL

I have made 5 tomes this week and pushed to do one soft cover journal. Yikes!
Check them out on my Etsy store :)

Hope everyone is having a great 2018!
my wishlists and want lists for this year...
I try this every year but meh... Oh well its worth a shot :)

Hugs to all :)
Happy winter solstice!
Think if flooded my gallery with books, time for other things. Ill update it with more books if anyone is interested....

For now ill post a couple sculpts in progress.
Ive been making some tomes that are themed for the season. Feel free to check them out! :)

Ill be putting them up on my ETSY store but you can see them here in my gallery :)

So you might be wondering why all the books?
Well I've been making custom books for a few months now but have been slacking big time on getting them up online.
So with that said I dug through my computer, put books in their own files, dragon books, owl, harry potter, etc. and posted them on here and FA.

So I will spare you all from more journals for at least till i get photos of the 5 that are at the end of my bed right now while i fade off into sleepy dream land of dragons gryphons and books galore LOL XD

Enjoy and feel free to commission me for your own custom Tome, Grimoire, Sketchbook :)
So as you can see from my gallery ive been uploading a lot of custom books that I made. These are existing sketchbooks that i customized to look like old tomes or Grimoires, Spell books. Each book is $65. each and if you want a custom one let me know! :) Id be happy to do a custom one for you :)

The price would be $65. + Shipping Media Mail Rate
If you have a key chain, medallion or something you want on the cover you can send it to me and I would put it on the book. You choose the color of the book. Also weather or not you want the edges stained or pure white. 

Each book has my logo stamped into the back inside cover to show that it is an official "Raptor Arts" Tome / Grimoire! :)
I set up a gofundme account to see if we can raise any money to help our dog.. We just recently found not only does his eye have to have surgery he has a cracked tooth which is causing some issues as well. Not sure what were going to do but dad will have to put it on his card which he cant afford to do really... But what other choice do we have? We took off the cone of shame so he doesnt run into everything. When he starts rubbing his eye we put it back on.

Spread the word if you could.

Thank you!!!
