My name is Mandy. I enjoy carbonated drinks and the sound of plastic bags opening. Yea, I am that horrible person opening a candy wrapper in a library. I wont write my whole biography here, but I am a self-taught artist attempting to make her way into the art world. The work I do is in a lot of different mediums (Pencil, Pen, Ink washes, Acrylic, etc.) If you have any questions about the tools I use feel free to ask!

Many people make art a "goal" in some shape or form. But, it is simply not enough to say "I want to do this and get paid". Or, "I dream to someday be an artist". I don't think you are willing enough for anything in life unless you are ready to fight and bleed for it. This blog will follow my own personal struggles as an artist and hopefully some of my achievements as well. Tips? Ideas? Crack the whip.

 

Super Mario World piranha plants

This will be posted up for sale sometime this week :). One of my newest potted creations, these are around the same size as my minecraft flowers, but with a green pot.

Also, I had a lot of questions in regard to minecraft plants not being available in shop. They will all be listed this next week. Going to make a ton of them, but get them while you can. They take a while to make so when I run out it’ll take a couple of days

Super Mario World Haunted House Another photo frame from Super Mario World. I have another big project coming up, so stay tuned. Lots of Super Mario World products coming soon and then a bunch of pokemon magnets. The website is 80% done as well so hopefully I will have that up and running this week. :)

Sleeping Fish (Super Mario World) Framed One of the most annoying enemies in Super Mario World. The Sleeping fish! I don’t know the technical name for this little guy, but I do remember how damn aggravating he was. I am not sure about everyone else, but I almost always got murdered by him. Baby blue background, white mat and an acrylic black frame with a small inner bevel. When I was working on this, I had a kids room in mind with the baby blue background. Someday when I have kids, they are going to have some interesting looking rooms haha.This is not yet for sale on my website, but will be within the next few days. Keep an eye out!

Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past Frame My girlfriend and owner of Inari’s Whimsy said my last post was a little dull. Got a lot of “An axe. How exciting” sarcasm. Well…Shut your face! Check this out! Link from Legend of Zelda powering up his sword. C’mon, how much more awesome do I have to make this. This is now for sale on my website if anyone is interesting. I have a couple other legend of zelda items to make and hopefully can get some boss battle images done before the convention.

Minecraft Axe Frame

My first run of Minecraft framed items. I will be doing more of these to replicate the frames from the game. Soon I will be doing commissions for framed pixels. Throw out some ideas and I will give them a shot! This week I should have some kirby sprites, legend of zelda: Link to the past, sailor moon and super mario world. This frame is available on my WEBSITE. Check it out :D

Harry Potter Potions: Gilly Weed

Gillyweed is a magical plant native to the Mediterranean Sea. When it is eaten by a witch or wizard, one grows gills and webbing between the fingers and toes, allowing them to process oxygen from water and navigate underwater more easily. There is some debate among Herbologists as to the duration of the effects of Gillyweed in fresh water versus salt water, but the effects of Gillyweed in fresh water seem to last about an hour.

This is one of the many Harry Potter potions I will have at the convention. Here is the full list of potions you can expect:

1. Gilly Weed
2. Amortentia
3. Ageing Potion
4. Baneberry Potion
5. Black Fire Potion
6. Blood Root Potion
7. Cupids Crystals
8. Death-Cap Draught
9. Draught of Living Death
10. Drink of Despair
11. Elixir of Life
12. Felix Felicis
13. Heartbreak Tear Drops
14. Moonseed Poison
15. Pepperup Potion
16. Skele-Gro
17. Sleeping Draught
18. Veritaserum

A Couple Screenshots of the New Website

 Still working out the kinks, buying domain, figuring out how a website works and I am off and rolling. I decided I need to take art more serious as a business and really get involved with what I want to do with my life. I don’t want to work retail the rest of my life, so I came up with a plan and rolling with it. Follow your dreams! Life is too short to be taking commands from anyone.

Working on my Web Page!!!  (Finally…)You can check it all out in the link above. Still deciding on domain and have a loooottt to do with the main page itself. Hope you guys enjoy it! I will have a lot more information with the finished product and have a listing of products to buy, projects I am working on, commission information, and events I will be attending.“Remember tonight… for it is the beginning of always”  ― Dante Alighieri

Glow in the Dark Soot Sprite Jars
  Did a couple more of these bad boys, but this time with glow in the dark stars. This will probably be the last set of soot sprites I do. I am getting pretty sick of making them. Time to make some more bead sprites and other goodies.

Anyone with Deviantart, expect a massive upload from me. You can add me here: http://devileyeartwork.deviantart.com/
