Designer Dogs by manda-j-panda
Designer Dogs
This has been one of the favorite illustration projects I've done for class so far. I tend to think too literally about my projects, and even though it can be pretty tough, I'm happy that my professor pushes me to think outside the box. This was fun because I got to play with a different style and my professor challenged me to use only 2 colors. (I did use pink Copic marker for a couple of the dogs that had tongues showing, just because I couldn't get pink with blue and orange)

I'm sure a lot of you guys thought I fell off the face of the earth due to my long absence... but I'm still around!
I'll be honest- the new DA is killing my laptop- it makes everything so slow that I honestly have been overwhelmed trying to use it on a regular basis. I came through and went through my messages last month, and swore I'd do better... but it just hasn't happened. I still have to answer  some important notes and stuff and I feel bad for putting it off this long. :(

Important news:
I didn't end up going to Minneapolis to school this year, but I was re-accepted, so I'm going to try my hardest to make it work out for this year! It was a serious blow when I found out I wouldn't be able to go, because it was literally a month before I was supposed to leave, and that was one of the reasons I stayed away from this site. I was so disappointed in myself, and I felt like I let so many people down that I just didn't know what to do. Here's hoping this time will work out! (Now that I have a better idea of what I'm doing)

I put Marcel, my Crobidoll Marcel up for sale on Den of Angels. It made me sad to do this, but my girl Maybre has been nothing but a floating head for the last 2 years. I sold all of my other dolls last year in preparation for my move... which didn't happen. Originally, I was hoping to sell Marcel and re-shell him into a YOSD because I've wanted one for a long time. However, I'm not any closer to saving the money for Maybre's body (I suck, I know), so if he sells, the money will go towards finishing Maybre off. If not, I may have to sell my floating heads and just keep Marcel with me. I don't want to haul around a bunch of dolls while in school, so that's another reason I put him up for sale.

I'm thinking about opening an Etsy shop and selling some artwork. Although I need to do some more research because this isn't something I considered when I signed up for Etsy, and I'm pretty sure my user name is mega lame and I didn't take into consideration that I could be stuck with it.

I did some new artwork for my portfolio, so after I clean out my inbox of messages, I'll start to upload some more stuff.
I hope everybody has been doing well!

I'm an illustration student attending the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
I am also a ball jointed doll collector and amature photographer.
I'm not on DA too much because school pretty much consumes all my time. However, I still appreciate each and every person who follows my feed!
