Herding cats and gearing up around them

I don’t really know how to herd cats. I do know that doing what we do is challenging when you have…..studio cats! Nothing quite like trying to take photos with a feline photobombing your product photography. Or trying to get your attention by hiding the keyboard…

Like so:

 

I’m sorry, did you need this?

Or stealing your chair:

You may have your seat when I’m done!

Or getting ready for a product photo shoot:

This is my spot now, find your own. #tortitude

I do love our cats, even though I spend more time than one would think washing acrylic paint out of tails and pulling cat hair out of resin (how in the hell does cat hair get INTO a sealed container?! If we could figure that out, I bet we’d be that much closer to faster than light travel!)

I love them so much in fact that we’re trying to figure out a way to take them on the road with us when we travel. That would involve a camping trailer of some sort I’m sure. I’m sketching ideas in my copious free time (HA!). If any of you on the interwebs travel with cats, let me know how you do it!

Enough about my hellish felines. Working feverishly around them to create new art, we’re gearing up for quite a few shows! 

August 30th-September 3rd: CoKoCon, at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Phoenix, Arizona. Harry Turtledove is the Author GoH, Steve Rude is the Artist GoH. Local Author GoH is Beth Cato, Filk GoH will be Cheshire Moon. Eric Wile is the Gaming GoH.

Guests include Dan Fogler, Summer Glau, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, John Barrowman, Vic Mignogna, tons of local and regional artists, voice actors, CosPlayers, and more! We’ll be in Artist Alley! We’ll update with table location soon!

Weegonza Bazaar and Left Hand Asylum will be packing the van (her name is Elvira) and heading back to Sacramento! We had so much fun in June, and met so many cool people! We can’t wait!

Thank you!

First, we’d like to say a big thank you to the communities of Thatcher and Safford that came out to the Gila Valley Comic Con! We had such a great time and you guys are awesome! Everyone was very welcoming and friendly! Thanks for hosting such a great event! We’ll see you guys again for the 2nd annual Gila Valley Comic Con.

Now, we’re really excited to be able to continue our participation in First Fridays Las Vegas! We’ve met some of the coolest folks and have a great time doing it. We’ll be there again April 6th, and May 4th!

We’re very excited to set up our shop for the First Annual San Diego Rocket Con, April 28th at the Scottish Rite Event Center! You should totally come out! It’s gonna be a gas!

We also get to set up at the Carlsbad Village Fair on May 6th! We are looking forward to the new event and new folks to meet!

For the fourth year in a row, we’ll be at Phoenix Comic Fest! And that, is always a good time! We’ll be in Artist Alley AA1212

We’ll be bringing new jewelry and boxes to all these events! Be sure to follow us on Instagram to be the first to see new  works in progress! 

We’re also working feverishly on making everything that you see in our pop-up shop at shows available to you here in our online shop. Sign up for our mailing list to get the heads up on new pieces before anyone else!

We are still maintaining a presence on Etsy; although the bulk of our art and jewelry will be here.

And remember, if you see anything you like at one of our shows, but were unable to get it then, and can’t find it in our shop, just email us and we’ll make it available for you!

We look forward to seeing you!

Cheers!
