Yay for a TBA!

I’m doing another art challenge weekend. Figured since this one is a long one, I should make use of my time. I’m not sure that I’m going to finish all the designs on my list though as it’s Sunday and there are still quite a few. I haven’t been totally slacking though (ok, so I admit to some marathon mahjong on Facebook the other night…). There is a traditional medium piece that I’ve been working on for a while now and yesterday, I got really into it. I worked on it four hours straight. I’ll post it to this blog probably this week. I need to get a picture of it.

Anyway, this is one of the designs from my art challenge list. I love cupcakes and I love lolita style so this combines both of them into one. Apparently, the people at Zazzle liked it too and it got a Today’s Best Award for Friday. I was really happy to see that! I hadn’t gotten one in a very long time.

Here’s the link if you want to check it out in my Zazzle shop.

More of My Cupcakes :)

I was really happy with the new batch of cupcakes. I used to make fake roses out of Sculpey and had this one laying around from that project. It was my first and probably last time trying to sell art on consignment. It just wasn’t working out for me to make any money off of since I had to put the price so low so that the shop could get THEIR profit and didn’t make the retail price so high no one would buy them. Very frustrating to say the least. Anyway, this one never got turned into a full flower and it’s been rolling around in my craft box for a few years now. Now that I’m doing the fake cupcakes, I thought that this could possibly work as a good topper. I think I’ll make more of these flower ones in the future and maybe price them a bit more since they definitely take more work.

Happy New Years!

Hope everyone had a safe and happy New Year’s Eve! Since the turn of the year is usually associated with lots of partying and stuff, I thought it would be fun to post this design that shows what happens when a cupcake has too much fun. When I first did this design, no one got it, how the cupcake was all exposed with it’s wrapper down. I don’t know, to me I thought it was a funny idea. Maybe at the time I was just looking for ANYTHING entertaining. I think I was stuck in a meeting at the time that I did the original doodle….

Let Them Eat Cake!

Cake is so yummy! This is one of my first Illustrator designs where I said ‘I’m gonna put a lot of detail into this one’. I pretty much learned Illustrator through a once through with a tutorial book, a lot of trial and error and constant use. I was thinking one day that cupakes are basically little baby cakes and thought it would be fun to make a dessert family based off this idea. I am really happy with the way this one came out. Ended up spending nearly a full Sunday on this one. Originally, I was going to do a bunch of the usual Kimchi Kawaii designs, but once I got involved in this one, I couldn’t stop. This design can be found in my Cafe Press and Zazzle shops, like nearly all the others written about on this blog.

Since this one, I’ve already done another detailed Illustrator piece (Queen of Hearts) and am eager to start another one.
