Artist Alley Hermit Life + Magfest

Hi Newgrounds! It's been a while, but this year has been full of drastic changes for me--in a good way!

If you're not familiar with my work, I'm a Canadian artist in Edmonton, Alberta who draws three things; 

Monster girls, cute fat birds, and pinups! ...Sometimes all at once in the same drawing!


For the past couple years, I've been building my brand, expanding my artistic skills, finishing a teaching degree, and scraping by as an artist. I did some teaching work related to my degree, but I always had way more fun creating art for myself. This year, I took the plunge and registered for 25 different artist alleys and conventions all over North America, and I'm really happy to report that those shows were all a huge success! I'm finally seeing enough of a positive return to support myself and perpetuate what I love to do: creating original art. I even stopped taking commission work so I'd have more time to get my own ideas out there! I've even got my own art office and registerd business license!

Here are a couple of the things I've made for the first time this year... 

Hard Enamel Crow Pins (new ones coming soon, too!) --

Gold Ink Linen Cover Stock Prints based on my original inktober work-- (they're made with a specialty ink, too!)

Handmade Vinyl Decals-- (my sister taught me how to plot vinyl and mask layered designs, which was cool)

Birdblob Merchandise (based on a little drawing game I made up to play with my art students)...

ANYWAY,

I  wanted to announce (to any fellow Newgrounds users) that I'm going to be heading out to MAGFEST 2019 this January with my artist friends Nackem, Purefey (my sister), and Castcuraga! I think one of us is confirmed for an artist alley table so far, so not all of us will be vending, but if you see us, feel free to say hello! Since Pico Day isn't a thing anymore, I'm hoping that a few of the OG Newgrounds folks will make the trip out-- but who knows! It's nice to meet new faces, too!

If you've never been to MAGfest before, it's the closest thing I can think of to 'nerd burning man', if you're really into Music and/or Gaming. It's expensive, and it's pretty tough to get a room for the convention, but it's definitely a one-of-a-kind experience.

SEE YOU THERE, MAYBE! :D

Oh, this is nice!

How we sposed to focus on the art when you're in the pic though, Sab?
//ducks out quickly

That's awesome Sab, I've been a fan of your art for a long time now. It's cool seeing how your art has progressed since 2009. Wish I could see you at a con, seeing that your from Canada and I from Texas I guess that wont be happening anytime soon. Anyways, congrats on your success and success in the future!

I don't think I'm going to any cons anytime soon, but I'd be happy to commission work one day from ya. :P

Impressive showcase! :D This is really cool. Congrats on the successive successes; what sounds like a pretty ambitious year done well!

Amazing art, Sabrinatastica. Congrats!
Stop smoking weed, you canadian!

Looks pretty cool

Cool stuff
