A DD! Thank you thank you!

A DD! Thank you thank you!

While I was away doing fieldwork for my thesis research, I was granted a Daily Deviation - thank you so much, everyone! It was this guy: :thumb354948333: I thought it was cute they chose one of my plushies alongside Rascal, one of my rabbits. Too bad my etsy shop was closed at the time, since I was out of town. For anyone who is just visiting now, the shop is open: http://www.etsy.com/shop/weirdbuglady I am taking custom requests, but the wait time is a few months due to the volume of requests I have lined up at the moment. So if you are willing to be patient, we can make arrangements soon. Thanks again! I'm so happy for the honor and to

Insects in art

I just wrote a post in my blog about insects in shops found on Etsy: http://caterpillarblog.com/2013/01/31/insects-on-etsy/ I haven't spent much time browsing deviantART in a while. Does anyone have favorite insect-themed artists here they recommend I should check out? I'm a bit burnt out on insect photography (I love it and drool over it every day), but I'd love to find more artists (2D or 3D) to admire and possibly buy from. Thanks!

Beardies

Beardies

I know many many people here on deviantART love bearded dragons - I have had many requests for custom plush beardies over the years. My parents have a pet bearded dragon named Buddy, so I totally understand the love! The plushies take a lot of time and effort, and they have to be big enough to include all of the details and patterns. So I cannot take every request, and there can be a waiting period of up to a month or more. However I currently have two beardies for sale in my etsy shop. Check them out! :thumb351074288: https://www.etsy.com/listing/119419407 :thumb351074478: https://www.etsy.com/listing/119419483/

Happy Birthday in a week! I love your plushies, especially the tardigrades!
Really keen to purchase a bearded dragon - to be used as part of the reward system at our school where we have several resident bearded dragons living in our gardens.
Please contact me re quote/costs & shipping to Australia. Thanks!
I just came across your scorpion with babies plushie, and it is adorable!  My son's science project is about having the yello scorpion found in the Galapagos evolve due to rising water levels as a result of global warming.  They need to make a model representing the evolved physical characteristics, and would like to try sewing one rather than making one out of paper mache. Would you be willing to share your pattern?  Thanks!
