Quick reminder - the July Whisp auction is almost here! Tomorrow, July 14th - Sat July 16th. The auction will be similar to those in the past, being held over DA & FA. I'm both nervous and excited, it's been so long since the last adoptable auction. As a note, these are partly to test the waters, see if there's still interest in these types of adoptables. If it's a success, I hope to release another set next year (similar to these, they'll have a loose overall theme). If you want to see me continue, share, favorite, spread the news, and bid if you're interested in giving one a home. I appreciate anyone who helps to make this set of Whisps successful! A lot of love and heart goes into making sure these aren't your usual, cookie cutter adoptables. I hope you all enjoy the newest additions to our foxy spirits collection.

Made an update about print paper and shipping! The long version is a public post over on Patreon, located here: Later today Creature Collector Patrons will get an exclusive sneaky preview on the coming auctions, I swear I don’t just post about boring business things, lol! Anyways, long version over there, short version here: *New paper type! No optical brighteners = you can enjoy prints longer. It also looks lovely paired with textured/watercolor work.

Last minute decision & heads up! The adopt that I had planned to post today will be rescheduled to post later this month. Here are the new flat sales adoption dates: -Mystery Adopt #2: June 17th -Mystery Adopt #3: June 23rd *Patrons will still get the early release of these adopts as scheduled! To those who are following and hoping to get one: thank you for your patience with the reschedule! I promise, this isn’t due to anything negative. I have had several projects in the works since last year, and since I don’t know the exact dates for all of them, I have to be flexible on my end. The more I thought about it, I don’t want to take away from the specialness of the adopts, or the launch of the Loaf Tarot. Both projects mean a lot to me, so I’ll be spending the rest of this week promoting our new tarot deck, and showcasing on socials some of the artists who decide to post their preview. You can follow that over here: And if you want to follow the

Thank you so much, that means a lot to hear! :D
I love how you draw cats!!
Aw, thank you! They really are a joy to draw :heart:
Oh man, you make outstanding little sculptures! I love the design of nearly every single one. They are all so unique, with surreal colours and patterns while not going overboard and preserving a nice, natural feeling palette.
Keep up the amazing work! :D
Thank you much, it's so much fun to make these!
