Kirin and unicorn... by pallanoph

May I just say, this piece (in particular, the unicorn on the right) has been a huge source of inspiration for me as I've tried to sket...

As you may have noticed, my Ebay and Etsy shoppes have been empty and void of much activity lately. This is due to my "art" time over the past number of months being devoted primarily to contests and commissions, so I've not done much personal work. But I'm hoping to change that soon and get back to making some more of the sculptures I want to make and selling the sculptures that are ready for sale. For those of you who have been awaiting more of my sculptures, I am so sorry for making you wait so long! You are the most patient people in the world, but please know that I'm going to do everything I can to make sure that your wait is over as soon as possible.

So I just want to let you know that I will hopefully have some sculptures available for sale BEFORE the end of the year! There are about 4 sculptures that I've already uploaded (and entered into contests--all of which have already concluded and winners for all relevant contests have already been announced) here on DA which I'm planning to list on (probably) Ebay, as well as (hopefully) 7 more, brand new, NEVER BEFORE SEEN sculptures that I have never uploaded here or anywhere else online, which I hope to list on (probably) Etsy. My goal, Lord willing, is to have all these sculptures (11 in total, if I'm counting right) listed online and available for sale in time for you to purchase them and get these sculptures into your hands BEFORE Christmas (maybe even before Hanukkah, if I put a real hustle on it). I'm not going to get stuff up before "Black Friday," but possibly within a week or so thereafter. So please stay tuned right here to my journals on DeviantArt if you want to make sure you don't miss the announcements when all those sculptures go up for sale. And if you want to bookmark my online shoppes just so you're ready when all those cute little sculptures do go up for sale, here are the links:

Furthermore... (drum roll please) ... I am hoping to launch my Patreon page before the end of this year as well! And with that, I also intend to launch my comics (since they've been incubating in development for half my lifetime)! Whoohoo! So lots of fun and exciting stuff coming soon. Again, I'll be announcing all of this via my DeviantArt journals, so keep watching, as I'll be announcing as things happen.

I've been drawing for as long as I've been old enough to pick up a pencil, though hopefully I've improved a bit since then. Sketching was a favourite pastime growing up, and I'm still perfectly well entertained just sitting and drawing. Though my parents put me into various and sundry art classes as a child, the best teaching I ever received was through a traditional (meaning literally hand-drawn on actual paper before this newfangled 3D computer animation stuff came into vogue) animation class offered to high school students at a local art college that I attended almost every Saturday for about 5 years. It was there that I developed my cutesy, cartoony style, as well as a love for character design in general. During the first half of my college years, while I was working on an Associates in film school, I was able to keep up with my art because so many of my projects required me to sketch out things like storyboards and the like. But during the second half of my college years, as I acquired my Bachelor's in a very non-artistic field, my art got shelved and almost completely ignored. It wasn't until I'd been married for a little over a year that I really dove back into my art, this time with gusto I'd never had before. Just to try it and see what might come of my art, if anything, I entered an art show in Sacramento (the "20/20" show, hosted at the Kennedy Art Gallery). What had I to lose? By the time I arrived for the opening evening, not only had 4 of my available 25 pieces already sold, but I discovered my series of watercolour paintings had won first place out of the over 30 artists being featured in the show! That was a downpour of blessings I had not expected, and certainly did not deserve, so with such a heartening experience, I began pursuing my art professionally. Since then, I have expanded my art both in mediums (including pens, pencils, watercolours, soft pastels, oil pastels, and polymer clay) and in sales platforms (including Ebay, Etsy, and personal commissions).

Every piece of art I create is, to some degree, an expression of something within me—something that lives, if nowhere else, within my imagination. If I have any talent whatsoever, it is only because the Original Creator has graciously bestowed it upon me, and I owe all my triumphs to Him and Him alone. My greatest hopes are that my art, somehow, brings at least a tiny measure of glory to my Lord Jesus, and that my art points viewers in at least some small way toward His love and beauty and truth and salvation. As an artist, I furthermore strive to be a light and an encouragement to my fellow artists. I exist to adore Him and to point others toward Him. May my art be a pleasing act of worship in His sight—for if it does not honour Him, then there's no point in creating it.

To God alone be all glory ~ Soli Deo Gloria!……
