I wanted to do a shout out post for one of my regular client’s Warhammer Channel over on YouTube. I have been working with Andy at Simply Warhammer for going on two years now (where did that time go?) and he always asks for the most interesting miniatures. He has been doing battle reports, commission painting reviews and all manner of hobby related posts and videos. Here is the link:
In order to raise funds for medical care for her cats, a friend of mine is offering art commissions. She is exceptionally talented and offers work in different styles. I said I would give her a shout out to help her along – we who create have to help each other out as much as we can after all! here are some samples of her work and her details:
Here are some more links if you want to know more!
Tragic Fangirl – aka Jenn, my sister – has started creating again, which is awesome news because I really love her stuff. She had created a shop on redbubble, which allows you to buy her art on a variety of different things. Bags, stickers and all sorts of items. I wanted to give her a shout out because her stuff is awesome and it needs to be seen. I think it is a great idea and I shall be buying some of these bits as gifts for people in the future. Here are some examples from the shop!
There are several categories to look at, and she is adding more artwork and options on a near daily basis! It’s worth keeping and eye out!
It is hard starting up a small business. I stopped a well paid career to paint miniatures and the financial fall out has been a challenge. A good friend of mine has followed the same path, she has also stopped a well paid career to walk the path as a tattoo artist. She is damned good at what she does as well. Nansi Twice combines her immense real life drawing skills with the needle to create what I think is a unique look and feel.
Here are some examples:
Now, as a budding artist it’s a good idea to learn from the greats. She has applied to go to a seminar with a tattoo artist that she greatly admires, and got accepted! Win!
Now the tough bit. It’s in Berlin, she was told about it yesterday, and needs to pay for it by Tuesday Midnight. The problem here is that it costs £900, which is not a small amount of money to come up with in two days for anyone!
As a fellow artist in a small business, I said I would do all I could to help. Nansi has set up a GoFundMe and is doing all she can to raise the required money in the time frame. I don’t usually ask for money as it makes me uncomfortable but if there is anything you can do to help, please do.
