…for shameless self-promotion. Y’see, there are sales afoot, and one might as well take advantage of them, yes?
Specifically, I’m an artist. I do art. Some of it’s good. Some of it’s for sale. Some of it’s on sale.
Some is over here, at Zazzle. It’s mostly shirts, but also some fun puzzles and assorted knickknacks, like this Zelda-inspired bumper magnet and this Mousemech art (available on a variety of things) that I’m inordinately happy with, and some preliminary Project Khopesh art.
Some is over there, at Shapeways. Specifically, my gearpunk dice and some World of Warcraft inspired “class rings“, suggested by the venerable Big Bear Butt some time ago. At present, I only offer Druid rings, but I’m taking requests. I also have some other great ideas for 3D prints, if only I can make the time to create them… including the models for Zomblobs!
CafePress carries one of my shirt designs, but I’ve decided I’m not a huge fan of their limitations on free shops, so most of my products will be offered via Zazzle for the forseeable future.
I also do the occasional commission, but to date, that’s mostly been for in-game currency over on the Puzzle Pirates forums, where I’m known as Silveransom, from whence several of the bits of art in my Mini Portfolio hail, and where one of my art tutorials resides. I’d love to open the floodgates to do commissions for cash, but since I can’t promise a quick turnaround, I’ll just say that I’m very open to requests, I’m just going to be somewhat less than a full-time production house. Somewhat less than part-time, really, but you might be surprised what is possible to do in the wee hours around midnight when the kids go to bed.
Y’see, things are unnaturally busy here at the Tesh household. We’re finishing the basement, so my “vacation” from work this holiday season isn’t exactly filled with carefree whimsy and mad dashes to fulfill art requests. Still, I’m working in a bit, here and there.
So yes, Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas, or whatever it is you do this time of year!
…are the Steam sales up yet? That’s kind of an event, right?
