Ok so for anyone who is curious about why we dissapeared for a few years, here is our answer.  Raven (Eric) and Fox (Amber) got married in September 2013 and then just days after our first wedding anniversary our first baby, our son, was born.  We were living in a small apartment at the time so we had to sell a lot of our supplies and convert the art room into the baby's room.  But not even half a year goes by and I was pregnant with our second child.  She arrived in January of 2016 and at that point we had both a 1 year old and a newborn.  Just a few months after my daughter turned one I unfortunately lost my job of four years and could not get unemployment.  I ended up being unemployed for six months and during that time we started doing small craft shows in the area and at farmer's markets to help with money.  While I am now working again (two jobs at that) we decided to continue the art studio for now.  But with children and other employment we will be scaling back to maybe a handful of conventions a year.  But in all seriousness we all missed doing conventions and making art.  So we are continuing with limited space, but we're making it work.  Then we finally started pulling in enough income to apply for artists alleys.  Now we're accepted into Jafax this year and applying for Grand Rapids Comic Con.  I hope to update the site with our new work soon, and to see some of you at conventions again.  We're happy to be back doing what we love.
Hello everyone!  I know it's been a long time and if you want we can go over what we've been up to the last few years but the main thing is we're back from hiatus!  We started with some smaller arts and crafts shows locally to get a bit of revenue.  We are now officially accepted into JAFAX and we're applying to Grand Rapids Comic Con so I need to start updating our galleries and websites.  Look forward to future updates!
