Need shoes?

July 31, 2008

I think this is one of the best ideas ever! Even better than the awful minimalist artwork they allowed on sneakers (if you used Adobe Illustrator) for Spreadshirt’s European site. What’s the idea you ask?

Zazzle is now allowing sellers AND buyers to personalize their very own style of Keds sneakers! You can from three different styles in Womens’, Mens’ and kids’ sizes and fill the palette with your own unique design. It’s just one of those things they threw out suddenly this week and I’m all over it! I really want to make a mermaid shoe for my mom. I’m looking for the right design to add. Check out these designs I’ve put in already:

Blueshoes

“Blue City Sneakers” – LDG 2008

Grapeshoes

“Summer Grapes Slip-on” – LDG 2008

I’m still working on finding some pics I have to use as backgrounds and such. This is going to be a real learning experience. 😀

Imagekind sale… check it out!

July 16, 2008

As you all know (those of you who know me and those of you who actually care 😉 I sell my art as prints at various sites. I’ve spoken about Imagekind in the past as a great site to go and get nice prints framed or otherwise. You can check out my previous post about my buying my own print framed. It was a good experience. 😀

So… check out the sale. Thanks!

Free Shipping till July 23rd!

For Doc Marten Contest

For Doc Marten Contest

This is one of my entries (the best one actually) for the Doc Marten boot contest. I found out by accident about this when someone was nice enough to compliment me at Zazzle about something I recently added to my shop there. She had a link to her own boot design so I gave it a go. If you could all vote for me, I’d appreciate it. 😀

I’m also waiting for news about where and when my piece of art I contributed to There is going to be on display. I haven’t heard much since they told me I won. I’ve already begun spending the money on my avvie. LOL She hasn’t had anything new in a while I think. She has more stuff than I do. ;P

If you hear of any good contests, let me know. I’m always up to for a new place to showplace my art.

Thanks for reading!

YAY!!! I won!

July 4, 2008

I was checking my email today and received this:

Congratulations!

You have won for best RL Medium image in the Summer Art Fair Contest! You will recieve your prize soon, and we will submit your work of art as a developer item free of charge! We will contact you soon to let you know when your item will be available.

Way to go!

The There Community Team

So I was a winner and my artwork will be displayed in the game. 😀 The problem is… I’m trying to recall what I sent in. LOL I think it was my Bird Girl aka Girl of Cranes geisha print. Geesh, you’d think I’d remember what I sent in. I might check my sent msgs as I usually send a copy of contests and important stuff back to me.

When I get a screenie of the art, I’ll show it here.

~L~

PS, just checked my sent mail… it was my Geisha Year of the Rat image that won. 😀

WHEEE for me!
