So... I decided to start setting up my E-shop today. Things are going to take a little longer than I expected as I have to write up all the legal malarkey like the terms and conditions, privacy policy etc.

I will definitely have the mini prints up, but I would really appreciate opinions on what artwork they would like to see available.

Buttons/Badges/Pin Backs... will also become available soon! I found a reputable print service in the UK which would make things SO much easier!!

I was thinking of putting up tote bags too... although Im not going to spill any secrets on how these will look until they are available ;) (hopefully very cool haha) just to keep you on your toes *giggles*.

I think that will probably be all thats available to start off with. If you would like a certain product, please let me know so I can try to see what i can do!

Thank you very much for your support!

Havn't updated in ages! :O

hmm... i knew this was going to happen... i get too busy and forget i have this to update too!
Gah!! Well... i now have mini prints available for sale... If you would like to know more about the details please follow the link - http://parochena.deviantart.com/journal/23866978/

On another note... somebody suggested that i should think about going into children illustration and also writing my own book while illustrating at the same time...
At first i was a little "hmm" about the idea but then i started to get some things down on paper (word wise) and came up with a cute little story that could be very nicely illustrated for about 5+ years :D

I also found a publisher that will be interested in viewing my work! So... currently that is what im working on...

I have written the whole manuscript and finished the illustration for pages 1 and 2 :D I hope to get it done in at least 1-2 months? (I might be a little hopeful on this one haha)

Urrrmm... I cnat upload anymore info about that though :( no preview illustrations or texts or anything :( or i wont be able to have it published! But i will deffo keep you posted!!

By the way... If you wanted the prints... you could also email me at parochena@yahoo.co.uk :D

All from me for now! Sorry it was awhile before i updated this!!

Button Badges/London Expo

Today, I am going to send off for some quality samples for my buttons :D
Hopefully then I will have a little more information about pricing and so on.

On another note... I will be going to the London MCM Expo In May, I am going to see how things are set up and so on (of course to have fun too!) and then hopefully see what I need to sort out to exhibit there in October.
If I do exhibit there... there should be lots more merch to become available so I can have it at my table... I am discussing and planning them now :) Hopefully... you should see prints, postcards, bookmarks etc. and we were also thinking of something extra we havnt seen anywhere else ;) but that one is a surprise! :D

More info about buttons will come when I get the samples :D

Looking into a new GT

Well... I did manage to start sketching that new piece I was talking about earlier today, its now sitting on my computer waiting to be painted lol!
I wont upload any sketches for this one as i want it to be a surprise ;) :D hehe!

Anyways, my GT is in dear peril! The poor pen has nearly cracked due to working too hard xD The bad thing is... the version of my Wacom Tablet (Volito 2) is no longer available, so there is no chance of buying a new pen for it. Since it was only cheap and probably with very little specs, I was considering maybe buying one a little more expensive this time, I think i have £50 saved somewhere? Im just not sure which one to get! (there are so many!) Is there really much difference with how they work? So will it be worth it? Im just very confused right now.
This one is the Wacom Bamboo One, to be honest the specs on this one look like they are exactly the same as my previous one?

You see... the Bamboo Fun's Specs look pretty much the same apart from having the zoom tool, and its about £30 more...

The Wacom Intuos3 A5 Tablet has almost double the specs as my original one... but its £199.99 on Amazon at the moment... Thats way more than I have saved haha! The question is.. is it worth it? Should I save up and get this one instead? I would really like your opinions please?

Thank you!! :D

Wish me luck! :D

Yummy Chocolate!

Well I finished another one!! Jeez this makes me want some chocolate!! I found it a little strange to do that chocolate egg, I'm not sure it looks quite right but still hope you can tell what it is. I was going to make the patterns on the little eggs different colours, but, I found that it looked better the way it is now. (the other didnt really male it pop if you know what I mean) I also changed the way the stem of the carrot was, the other way made it look a bit too busy and distracted the eye too much away in the wrong direction.

I just realised yesterday that Mothers Day in the UK is on the 22
nd! Thats, around 17 days away. I have to think up something to give my mumma :D I will probably paint her a card as its more personal that way.

Anyway, I hope you like how this one turned out!
Im pretty pleased with how the bunny looks myself... but that could just be me hehe!

Its almost easter! Have you all bought your easter eggs? Well... considering my sudden.. "OMG its nearly easter and i havnt bought my eggs yet" thought... I came up with this little fella :D The idea is that he has a special easter egg that is filled with carrots! Unfortunately... the easter egg is bigger than him. Saying that.. the little bunny thought to himself... "I wonder if i could eat it to get my carrot!?" "im very hungry too... maybe its worth a try?" So he nibbled away at the gigantic egg. A bite here and there, how tasty is this? The little bunny was oh so full at this stage. He couldnt possibly eat anymore! A little glint of orange shone his way! "Its a carrot a carrot!" squealed the little one. He was almost able to reach it, until, he collapsed in a heap into the bottom of the massive chocolate egg. "My carrot!" The little guy was so full from his journey that he could not even imagine fitting this beautiful carrot into the tiny belly of his.

Yeah well... It will be done soon i hope :D Just a little peak at the sketch and the colour scheme :D (it might change though.. it depends how i feel about it as i move on haha!) I think im on a roll all of a sudden! Nearly one piece a day for 3 consecutive days!! Im shocked! :O I keep having little ideas popping into my head! If i dont jot them down then they will all poof :( Oh well! you will have an explosion of my art hehe! :D

I have to go now... little Morgie (my puppy who is 1 in 9 days!!) is moaning at me saying she needs a wee haha!
Bye bye! Please tell me what you think of this little guy :D

Oh dear! so here i go with ANOTHER post... you are gonna get bored of me.. haha!
I actually finished! not just sketched what i was planning on doing next! It didnt take me as long as i imagined... or maybe im just awake today? That could be it too haha!

It was going to be a giraffe... but i figured it looks more like a cow because you cant see the stick thingys the giraffe has. (they are under his hat)

You actually get to see this before it even goes on deviant art :O Mainly because the stupid thing is taken FOREVER to upload! jeeez! I hope it does it soon! I want to go and make a sandwich haha! Im thinking ham and cheese maybe?

All Ready For Posting!

Muahaha! okay.. so two blogs in one day... oopsie! Anyways, I have now done the banner! I hope it looks okay! Its kind of simple i know, but i thought if i keep it simple, it will be easier for you to actually read the things i write! haha! I will try to contain myself from posting another, but you might have a little surprise with a new sketch. (which i will eventually sit down and draw hehe) Maybe? We will see ;)
