Lack of content being added the last month has been minimal as we have been working with our "boss" (we volunteer some time in a art gallery to have our art shown for free and this person owns it) the last 3 weeks or so in the progression of opening a craft mall store in the local Crystal River Mall in Florida. He approached the misses and I about 3 weeks ago and asked if we would be interested in managing/running it. So now we are in the process of picking the space out, we have already had a meeting about financials (what supplies we need to build booths, how much to charge, how many vendors can we fit in a place, etc.) and we should have just one more meeting this week (have to meet with his wife and "sell" a particular location to her) and we should be able to start getting things built. We are so excited since we have been wanting to run a shop for quite a few years now.

As far as content goes we are going to be trying better at posting on here. The last year and half has been crazy with trying to move. The individual that was supposed to buy our place winter of 2016 backed out a week before closing and that just threw everything out of wack. But we finally moved and have a place in sunny Florida. We just got a place about 2 months ago and are still in the process of unpacking. BUT, we do have a few new things. We will be adding to what we make as well. We have many plans for more content and we are slowly working up to it so please be patient and enjoy what we are able to currently provide.

We also found a gallery that we can show our art locally. The place is called Paint the Town Citrus in Crystal River, FL. So if you live nearby or are going through, stop on by the mall and visit the gallery to see our stuff personally as well as many other fantastic artists.

So after talking with the my last client, Aurora Lightbourne, about her book covers I have decided that I am going to try and do that as well. We did 5 covers (still working on the 6th) for her and we all were pleased with them. So, if you know anyone that is writing a story, book or just wants an illustration send them here to take a gander at all that we do. If someone order's a picture and says they were referred to us by someone from DA then they will get a discount on the image.

Finished doing some book covers for an author. Still have one left to do but we did 5 of her other books. They look great and she was speechless over them. Here's a couple of them:

Brass Hearts

Space Trippers Book 1

Was a lot of fun working on these babies. If you know of any writers looking for cover artists send them our way. We would love to help whomever we can.

Anywho's, that's the latest update for now, so, yap at all you folks later. Have a good weekend!!!!! ;-)

So my mom is buying one of our mermaid prints and was disappointed that we only had a few mermaids. I thought we had quite a few..................well, she was right. We only have maybe 5 choices. 2 of them are alcohol related and she is getting a picture for her husbands 6 year old niece. SO, we are working on a couple of new pieces. Here's one of them:

Butterfly Mermaid

This little guy will be it's companion:

Turtle

There is another one that we are working on but haven't transferred/drawn it out just quite yet. Monday the 29th it will be in our gallery. It's a princess type. Hopefully you guy's will like the design.

So we are working on more pieces of art. Which is fantastic and it feels good to be back doing it. Look for more stuff from us.

On a side note I wanted to make a mini series of armor/weapons and here is one of them:

Dragon Maw

This is one piece of 4. The other 3 pieces will be a shield, sword and helmet. Dragon's wing for the shield, dragon's claw in the sword and dragon's head for the helmet.

So as you all possibly know we have not done A THING all year. My mother-in-law broke her ankle back in February (I think I mentioned it in another journal) and we were taking care of her (meaning being at her beckon call) for 7 months. We weren't able to do anything during that time and just got out of the habit of doing anything.

But now??????? We're back in the game. The Gnomes Vs. Goblins contest got us back into doing something and we made 4 pictures for the contest. I thought the contest ended next week so we rushed tonight (Sunday) to get them done. We will work on and make better a couple of images but we were excited to be able to get at least these pics done. We got all of them done in just a couple of weeks so be sure to stop by our gallery, check them out and let us know what you think.

We are preparing for an art fair in August. So we need lots of new wood boxes and trying to find time to make some new art dolls.

We did make a new connection with a local gaming store that wants some dice and trading card game boxes. We designed a zombie that holds 2 decks and a Dryad and a 'bag of holding' that will be monsterous when done.

All our boxes are Limited Editions with only 30 of each design. Each is completely hand made, carved and painted taking several days to complete so they are all One-Of-A-Kind as well! If you like a design get it while you can before the Edition sells out!

We also offer our art as wrapped canvas prints. 16x20 Limited edition of 100 in each series, numbered prints. $90 plus shipping.

So not only are we having to take care of my mother-in-law until she can walk on her own again (pretty much taking all of our time), my scroll saw decided to quit working on us. So now we can't continue to make our boxes. I was supposed to have had 3-4 boxes made within the last two weeks but that didn't happen due to everything that has been going on.

If anyone would be willing to help raise the money for us to get another one we would greatly appreciate it. Leave a comment or send us a message and we will give a link where you can make a donation.

We are wanting to get as many boxes done as possible 1) so people can see what they look like in order to get one for themselves, but 2) (and this is a BIG reason) we are wanting to go to an MLP con in May. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

We are open for commissions for the trinket/jewelry boxes. I know we have only shown one right now. That was a practice box and we really enjoyed doing it.

The box is about 7"-8" around and about 1.25" deep (the middle is made form a 2x8 board).

This beauty is a custom piece, so we are willing to do whatever character or thing you want. If you don't want a cartoon character and want a big flower instead we can do that.

Price is $45 + shipping in the United States (we would prefer not to mail outside of the U.S. as shipping is VERY expensive for that). These boxes will come fully painted.

Was going to put the last piece onto our model tonight, but one of our cats had other plans. I set up our Rainbow Dash model, turned to grab my pencil and measuring tape and BAM, she was on the ground, BROKEN. Waaaah!  OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I AM SO MAD. Rage The back legs broke, tail broke and one of the wings broke. No, I disagree!

 I'm going to try gluing them back on and see how it looks, but it looks like it will be our mantle piece now. I am really upset because I wanted to save her for a Brony/Pony con to put in an auction. If I can get it all glued/put back together I'll post a pic of what it WOULD have looked like finished. Now I'll have to use the base for another project. We are going to try making these models smaller and see how that goes.

We are going to be participating in an art event this weekend....if all goes well. And will be making some new carved jewelry boxes for it. Vintage card/ floral inspired designs. Some cute, some elegant.
Perhaps one or two that can be personalized with a name.

Do you have any requests or suggestions for images on the boxes?

We have open slots available for jewelry boxes ($25, size is 5x3.5x2.5) and door plaques ($25-$35 depending on design, size is about a sheet of paper). Shipping is not included in price and full payment is needed up front. Your choice of design. It could be your favorite character, words, art nouveau, OC character or whatever other line art you would like. We have limited slots available. We have around 10 slots left of each item. These would make great gifts for yourself or others.

There is an event in Jacksonville, IL next Saturday the 18th that we will be attending; so current projects will be on hold until after that. I have not completely finished the Apple Jack project yet (ran out of ink for our printer) but I will get that done after this event. What is this event that I speak of? It is the annual Exhibition of Nudes held at the Asa Talcott House in Jacksonville. So, the projects we will be working on are finishing one doll and working on (hopefully) 3-4 wood pieces for the event and we will be taking about 2 old pieces we had taken previously. Hope this event is as fun as the last one we went to. ; )

Here it is, a WIP pic of current project that I said I would post. A day late, but none the less, here it is.

WIP Apple by RyuNeko-Artzcom

So far all I've done is etch the outline and the "vines" and apples. Took me a lot longer to do that than I had wanted it to, but hey, it's gettin done and we think it looks pretty good so far. Will post another pic of this when all of the etching is done. Enjoy and let us know what you think. Wink/Razz

Hello all. How is your winter going so far? Well, it's very cold where we are, and it's supposed to get worse this weekend. Anyways, we have a couple of plaques we will be working on this weekend. First will be a door plaque for a babies door and it will be Apple Jack. When I get the initial etching (outline) of the image I will post a WIP pic so people can see which image we are doing. For the next one after that not sure yet what I want to do. Pokemon is a huge thing right now so thinking of doing an old school pokemon and there are a lot of people that still like Dragonball Z (me included), I just have to think of what character I want to do. We will also accept commissions. We will do cartoon characters, if you like MLP and have an OC we will do that character, band logos, etc. with a small 2-3 word phrase maximum under the image. We do family safe work so please no foul language requests or anything NSFW. Our plaques can be available in three forms. 1) unfinished 2) darkened background and sealed 3) painted and sealed. Prices will vary depending on which of these three you want done and what type of image you want so please contact us about pricing.
