Rapid City SD
Hopefully more to come!
I will have my usual wares, including comic books, artwork, magnets, and commission supplies!
Some changes for commissions this year-
The base prices of my at-con sketch commissions are now $10 for a single character bust (head and shoulders/torso), $20 half-body (mid-thighs and up), and $30 full-body.
The base price doubles for for each additional character, so 2 charas is $20/$40/$60, 3 charas would be $30/$60/$90.
Quotes for traditional inks / colors available upon request, starting at $30 inked bust and $50 colored bust.
Sketch / ink / marker commissions will be on 100lb 8.5x11 inch white acid free cardstock.
Watercolor commissions are on 140lb 9x12 inch Strathmore cold press watercolor paper.
Digital prices (stuffaeamade.tumblr.com/commis…) are still the same.
Firstly! I found another one-day anime con to table at!
Dargon Con will be on Aug 16, from 10am to 8:30pm at Dragon’s Den in Sioux Falls SD. I managed to snag the last available vendor table and will be taking commissions and selling my comics + the usual stuff (art, prints, journals, magnets, etc).
Secondly! I tidied up my commission info!
I do take commissions outside of cons! I’ve got three slots available right now. If you’re interested, read through the info on my commission page and shoot me an email~
Thirdly! Some Magnolia & Vern news
I’m still working on the first collected M&V ebook. The actual comic pages are done and locked, it’s just the cover, bonus content, and a few other bits to finish.
In addition, I’m working on another batch of shorts to rebuild my buffer. If things go according to plan, I may be able to release the second M&V collected ebook before the year is over. That would be cool, but…
Fourthly, My wrists are being awful.
I’ve been dealing with tendinitis and borderline carpal tunnel syndrome in both my wrists for several years now. Mostly because of overwork and not stretching / resting them enough. Both wrists flared up, and when that happens it effectively kills a week for me, art-wise. (Take care of your wrists, people!!)
I’m resting, and stretching a lot, and they are feeling much better, so hopefully I can ease back into drawing on Monday. I want to do more art streams, too.
Fifthly, Mushi Shi is very, very good and you should watch it.
That is all!
More info on the con is here:
I will have magnets, some journals, original art and prints, and my commission supplies.
Since it's a one day con I'll probably stick to sketches, with the option for larger ink / color works to be completed and mailed after the con.
EDIT: Looks like the vending room hours are 11am - 9pm, so I will try to be there the entire time!
I’m scheduled for 10 hours less than my preferred minimum this week, so I’m hoping to make up the difference with some commissions!
-Open Nov 30 - Dec 6, 2014 ONLY
-Digital head & shoulder / bust single character sketches
-5x7 inches (12.7x17.8cm) at 100dpi, 2 colors
-Personal use only, no commercial / for profit work.

Payment via PayPal (I can probably make Square Invoices work too tho)
If you’re interested, please send me an email at stuffAEAmade AT gmail DOT com with the subject “commission flash sale” with the following:
1. A link to a visual reference of the character you want drawn,
2. A sentence about their personality,
3. What sort of expression you’d like them to have,
4. What 2 colors you want me to use (hex codes are fine),
5. What email I should send an invoice to.
If I accept your commission, I will send you an invoice and as soon as it’s paid I will start working on it!
(if the slots fill quickly and I get them done quickly, I will open more)
And you can buy PDFs of my comics on Gumroad!
My final show for 2014 will be at the Benson Flea Market at the WH Lyon Fairgrounds Expo Building, December 6-7, Sioux Falls SD.
Read from the beginning here - magnoliaandvern.tumblr.com/pos…
As of today, The Forest redraw is about 90% complete. All that's left is inking the final page, finishing the bonus miniprint, and assembling the print / digital PDFs for proofing. That all ought to be done by the end of the month, though I'm not sure when I'll actually get it printed. I'm currently sitting on several things that are ready to proof & print, it's just a matter of getting the funds together to do so. Next year seems more likely at the moment.
Online Shop - stuffaeamade.storenvy.com/
I added a bunch of things to my Clearance section ( stuffaeamade.storenvy.com/coll… ) and discounted most of the prices by 50%. Use the coupon code "ClearItOut" for an additional 10% off. That code will work on everything in my shop, not just clearance items.
I also keep a 'for sale' tag on my tumblr ( stuffaeamade.tumblr.com/tagged… ). Contact me if you're interested in any of the items in it!
My shop is long overdue for an update, I have a bunch of new items to add. That will be one of my winter projects.
I am going to close commissions at the end of September for the rest of the year so I can focus on comics. Prices will go up when they reopen next year, so If you want to get something at the current price points, contact me before then!
W/R/T Digital Comics!
Remember when I said I was going to raise the prices on my digital comics back in July? Yeah, I forgot too. But I AM actually gonna do it on Friday, Aug 15. So if you want any of those at $1 each, grab them now!
W/R/T Print Comics!
I am running low on many of the first printings of Magnolia & Vern issues with the bonus mini-print. If you want those, buy them sooner rather than later!
It's also the opening weekend of the Sioux Empire Fair, and I've been hearing that attendance is expected to be in the tens of thousands. If so, it'll easily be the largest show I've ever done.
I have no idea what to expect. I'll have supplies for commissions, but I don't know if I'll take many or advertise them too much. Sounds like foot traffic could be overwhelming enough.
I will for sure have my little journals, linoleum block prints, minicomics, and some original art for sale!
My next con will be Anime Fargo Sept 26-28 in Fargo ND. I'll have a table in the Artist Alley.
I'm also looking into local craft fairs and flea markets, more on that as I confirm details.
My plan for the rest of the summer is to settle down into a routine and get back to work on my comic book Magnolia & Vern. My goal is to relaunch the webcomic version before the end of summer.

SoDak Con in Rapid City SD, May 30-June 1, Artist Alley - www.sdcon.org/
I will have mini comics, handmade journals / sketchbooks, original linocut / linoleum block prints, some odds and ends, a bunch of original artwork for sale, and I'll be taking commissions. Come see me early if you want a commission, especially something inked or colored, because my slots usually fill up pretty quick!
I will also close my Storenvy shop the Wednesday before each con, so if you've had your eye on something, pick it up before then!
Right now I am busy finishing up another issue of Magnolia & Vern, so I can debut three new ones at No Brand Con!
I will probably have some kind of bundle where you can pick up all the issues so far at a discounted price.

For more frequent art posts, check my tumblr stuffaeamade.tumblr.com which updates almost daily. I also spam my twitter twitter.com/stuffAEAmade with whatever I'm up to at the moment.
I finished school, so now I can dive headfirst into making comics again <3<3
I think I'll start putting a few more finished pieces up here.
My tumblr stuffaeamade.tumblr.com still updates every day, lots of sketches and wips over there.
I'm also open for commissions, my info and pricing can be found here stuffaeamade.tumblr.com/commis…
And I have an online shop with a variety of goods here stuffaeamade.storenvy.com
Getting internet installed on Wednesday, start training at my job tomorrow, done with school until June, spent all the cash I got selling text books on comic books, and penciled 9 comic pages in the last 2 days.
Nothing lights a fire under your butt like learning your senior exhibition is right away spring semester! Anything I want to show needs to be done this year, winter break at the latest.
Finals are next week and I've found a job, so all that's left is getting an internet connection for my computer, which I hope to do sometime this week!
Then I'll finish working out commission samples and prices and get those opened up.
As always, my tumblr is getting lots of updates stuffaeamade.tumblr.com
I'm moving into a cute little apartment with my kitties and bunny this weekend. As soon as I get my office/studio space set up, and get my terms and prices fine-tuned, I'm going to open up for personal commissions. Hopefully that will be in mid-April, May at the latest.
I've discovered while sorting through my room and packing that, holy crap, I have a ton of stuff. When did I get so much stuff? I went through piles of old art and tossed it out. I don't think I had thrown away a single thing I had ever drawn since I was 13; it was ridiculous.
I've got a bunch of anime dvds, manga, and anime/video game OSTs that I don't want anymore. I also have a ton of Viz Shonen Jump issues. Is anyone interested in seeing a list of what I have? I'm going to start putting it on Ebay once I get things organized.
Ahaha, and here I thought going to an anime con mid-semester was nuts!
(Speaking of which, I'm pretty sure SogenCon is the only one I'll be getting to this year, and I'm going to focus only on portraits/commissions and little journals. Fuzzy ears will be on clearance.)
My tumblr stuffaeamade.tumblr.com has been getting way more updates than here!
Once I'm settled and have internet I'll get my DA up to date!
Draw more. A lot more.
Anatomy anatomy anatomy.
Try my hand at some more illustrative pieces.
Complete at least two short comics.
Get to the point where I can start drawing pages for my long term comic project.
School starts next week! I've got more figure drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, and art history.
Drawings from Nebraskon should be up later this week, along with more rough comic sketches. I need to get caught up on NaNoManGo.
New fur colors include grey, baby blue, kelly green, yellow, orange, red, and pink in addition to black, white, brown, fawn, and cheetah print. I'll get a picture up soon.
I may also have some old original drawings for sale.
The other thing I wanted to mention is at-con commissions.
I'll have my supplies so I can do sketches, inks, or watercolors. I also have markers, but I'm not as good with those. If you want to commission me, please bring some references. I've drawn from pictures on ipods and phones in the past, but the resolution is poor and they shut off and it's just awkward, so if you could bring something on paper that would be fantastic. I should also have access to the internet and a laptop in the evenings.
Sketches I generally finish within an hour (depends on the queue), inks and watercolors / markers take longer. My DA gallery has samples of how I can draw, and I'll have a sample binder with me at-con.
Sketches will start at $10 and are on smooth bristol board. Colors start at $25 and are on watercolor paper. Inks (I have different colors!) are also on bristol and will fall somewhere in between, and base prices will change depending on complexity.
I also do quick little sketch portraits that take about 10 minutes for $5/head. I'm still deciding whether to bring my soft pastels and do large realistic portraits on toned paper.
I think that's all I wanted to mention. School is keeping me busy, but I love all my classes, especially animation and figure drawing.
It was my second time in the Sogen Con AA, and I had a lot of fun. I was so happy to see how much bigger the artist alley was this year! My sister dragged me off to the rave on Saturday, but it was too loud for me and I spent most of the night in the video game room playing Rockband and Mario Cart.
The fuzzy ears did very well at this con. I know I forgot to mention this to a few people, especially on Friday, but the tips can be posed. I'm looking into getting more fur colors and next time I should have multiple sets of the same ears so it won't be first come first serve.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by to chat or to buy / commission something off me!
Next con is Anime Nebraskon in Nov!
EDIT: colorful fur located and ordered!
