January Concludes…

Hoo boy! January, following the trend of busy months, I was run flat out! I was spending each week helping the Arcanacon committee, furiously drawing and creating little bits to help the convention come together!

I also had the wonderful to work with people’s characters with commissions, which is a blessing! Gosh, character work warms my soul like you wouldn’t believe! I also had two separate instances of setting up shop at events! I was honored to participate in both the Midsumma Queer ZineFEST, and Arcanacon!

A huge thanks to my patrons and clients for the support, y’all helped see me through a big start of the year!

Most of these pieces are up on my Patreon, which you can follow to stay up to date with my latest pieces and a bunch of bonus content for pledges.

December Concludes…

I knew December would be a busy month, they are for so many of us in so many careers! Here in my little freelance world, it was of course filled with secret gift commissions, actual gifts from myself to my loved ones, and design jobs in preparation for Arcanacon!

Hey all my lovely loves! I finally put my gosh darn Inktober pieces together! They’re up on my Gumroad for download! I will be compiling a zine of them all for sale at Sticky Institute! All of my second tier patrons have the collection unlocked already!

A Menagerie in Sticky

My work is featured in the Sticky Institute window for the month of November! Come on down to 10 Campbell Arcade, Degraves Subway in Melbourne to get a good look at the pieces in person!

I wanted to explore my work in the context of tattoo flash. It’s something I am so very inspired and influenced by, that I decided to dive in and create some flash of my own! The pieces depict various wildlife I’ve seen throughout the Melbourne suburbs. These little critters are just one aspect of this city that I am in love with!

Thanks to Luke, Beck, Sam, the coordinators of Sticky Institute for lending me the window for November! Thanks to all the wonderful volunteers in Sticky Institute!

I acknowledge that Sticky is on the stolen lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation, and that Indigenous sovereignty has never been ceded.

It’s a great space! Come on down!

$5 tier Monthly Raffle !!!

raffle announcement
HI LOVES! This is kicking off! To honor all the support you give me, I’ll be doing a monthly commission raffle for all my $5 and up patrons! Everyone who has joined the Tier of Bells will be entered into a draw to win one of my character design portraits! This covers one coloured rendered sketch  piece and can be of a character, fanart, pinup, yourself, an animal or someone you know!

Pledge a minimum $5 per month to go into the running! Depending on the number of new pledges, I may be drawing more than one name! But for July, I’ve drawn from my current patrons!

I’ll be selecting a random member under the Tier of Bells at the beginning of every month using an RNG. This will go down once all the pledges for the previous month have processed and cleared, to assure your entry!

I’ll be messaging you via Patreon (Unless I have your email or know for sure your social media!) so please keep your eye on Patreon! Anyone who wins but fails to respond to the message within a week will loose their slot, and I will redraw!

Pledge! And you might win a art!

Love y’all!!!

~Helen ~ 3~
