I started a contest to celebrate 100 sales (which I have surpassed already) on my etsy shop.
Here’s all the ways you can enter!

I’ve lowered my prices on my etsy store because I would REALLY like to generate some sales! That has not transpired yet.
Furthermore, if there’s something you see and you like but you don’t want to use etsy, just contact me on here and I can process you through paypal.
Please share if you can. Thanks!
Yes, I will admit it: I am Weird.
I believe I have embraced this as my identity in a very subconscious way. I have no fear when it comes to expressing myself and I don’t think I ever did.
Anxiety is also a big part of who I am. It sometimes forces me to freeze and feel very weak-minded. It takes over me. I sweat profusely, I get heart palpitations, I just want to run and cower. It even can prompt me to sleep a whole lot.
Art is something that can help calm me right down, it is my soul doing the talking. It is an everlasting moment of freedom. I can look at my Art and think “I made that?”. It can be incredibly hard to believe.
I have hopes and dreams with it. Literal “close-my-eyes-and-fall-asleep” dreams. I see myself in the heart of a big city with my art in a gallery. I know it can be considered low brow and heck, I know there’s people who don’t like it and who could truly care less about me. I still have this dream.
“It’s too small. It should be bigger!”
“I can’t be your friend because I can’t stand your Art.”
“Your art is ugly.”
Tell me this. Tell me this over and over and over and over again. Please.
Why? Get your negative thoughts out, it’s good for you.
But for me?
I’ll keep creating.
I’m really surprised i’ve had the motivation to make Art lately. They are all following the very same theme which is not at all intentional–it’s just what happens.
I finished “Sweet Solace” and it’s for sale!
I’ve been asked numerous times “Where can I buy your art?” and I just haven’t felt like putting that out there.. until now. I’m not really sure what was holding me back, part of me feels like that’s because determining a price is very difficult. I have four items up right now and the prices are all varied. If there’s something you’re interested in or would like to special order from me, please let me know and i’ll do my very best to accommodate.
To purchase, press “Buy My Art” on the right hand side column of my blog or go to http://retrophiliac.bigcartel.com
Thank you so much for your continued support!
