Update on FibroShark Hungry
Overall, it's about 75% complete. Illustrations are at 90% with one comic to build from scratch, two to redo, & one that just needs coloring. The text is around 90% too, with some very valuable editing done by a few very valuable people.
After that work is done, I'll need to scan the artwork & put everything together in Publisher before it goes off to the printer. It's all becoming quite real, & I'm very frickin excited about it... or I would be if I wasn't also terrified.
You can still pre-order the book in the SSA store, but if you want to wait til the last minute, I'm sure that would be okay too.
Sharkydinks, stamps, & stickers
I had a lot of downtime last week, since my brain kind of... oh, decided that it didn't want anything to do with me for three days. During that time I made shrinkydinks, stamps, & stickers all with a FibroShark theme. They turned out really cute, & I'm certain that I'll be using them for various things to do with the project itself. Using the large stamp to make multi-colored sharkydinks was quite easy, & I think sharkydink necklaces might be on their way.
Additionally, I will probably digitize the large stamp to make it into labels people can add to their copy of the book - & one of these days, when the book is done & all the rewards are completed, I'll probably add a plush FibroShark to the store too. After the book, no number of plush sharks will every be as much work.
Holiday gift-giving ideas
Are you a creative type? Do you like to make your holiday gifts? Do you want some handmade paper as a starting place for those gifts? If so, you can order a dozen 9"x12" pages of handmade paper for $40! It can be customized by color, with glitter (or without), & made to include such bits of plants like bamboo, flowers (ground or whole), & other bits of magic. Orders can be ready in as little as a week.
Sale on last year's encaustic pieces!
As soon as I've finished the FSH illustrations, I'll probably be getting back to the griddle & painting in encaustic again. So, starting 10/15, all currently available encaustic pieces will be $25 (plus $5 for shipping), & when I update the store, I'll even be adding the Relative Time & Space pieces everyone seems to love. Pieces that don't sell by the end of the year will be scrapped & never seen again. Even that TARDIS piece. Point is, buy now or risk never being able to.
