They’re all one of a kind. But there are definite species that exist and are often repeated, so if there was one that you liked, it’s likely that something similar will pop up eventually.
Hello! I was really into sculpting little guys when I was a kid. I got away from it for a long time to focus on “serious art,” but then I recalled how much fun it was, so I started playing around with clay again. At the time, I was working on a webcomic with some friends, so I figured I’d take a couple sculptures to our next little comic convention and see if anyone wanted to buy them. Turns out they did! And that’s pretty much how it got going.
where can I get these!?!
Once I get the little aquariums finished, I’ll put them up in the shop! (I just switched from Etsy to Big Cartel, so that’ll be over here)
The teeny tiny cuttlefish are doubly awesome because this week, at the Monterey Bay aquarium, we spotted newly hatched and hatching stumpy cuttlefish! In the regular exhibit. AND SO TINY! Also, the coolest name…
Aw, new babies! Last time I was there, the stumpy exhibit was full of egg clusters. I wonder if that’s the same batch!
Who’s the tiniest little baby lake monster? Who?? Is it you??
Or is it you??
Are you the tiniest little baby lake monster?? Huh? Or is it you?
Or maybe it’s one of you guys! IS IT?? Smoochy smooch smooch face!
(I’m sorry everyone. I’m just really enjoying making these guys.)
It’s somewhere over 5000. All the ones I’ve sold on Etsy are documented and photographed there, but conventions are a little more loosey-goosey. So most of those are mystery guys.
Storenvy got back to me about the problem I had yesterday. It took 24 hours, and here’s what they told me:
Sorry for the trouble. I can only suggest that you refund the accidental orders -http://support.storenvy.com/customer/portal/articles/1090660-how-do-i-issue-my-customer-a-refund-
And make sure that you are uploading the quantities correctly - http://support.storenvy.com/customer/portal/articles/1090650
Please let us know if this continues. “
If I was the one who caused the problem by listing the wrong quantities, it wouldn’t say I had -1 in stock, would it? It would say I had sold the amount I had listed. WELL! Since they don’t seem to think this is worth fixing, I guess I’m done with Storenvy! If this happened TWICE the FIRST time I tried to sell through them, then I’m not optimistic about how it would go the next time.
Setting up Big Cartel today, I guess.
There are a lot of odd ducks back in the early days of Beastlies. Took a while to find the path, I guess? I’ll just pick a somewhat more recent guy who’s a little different than usual. This guy!
The happiest Beastlie ever? That’s hard…. Maybe this one? He’s from 2012 or so, but I think he still holds up as a happy little thing. Boy I dunno! There have been some very happy ones over the years.
have you looked at square space sites?
They’re on the list. I’ll be checking them out.
Now the decision is: Big Cartel or just crawl back to Etsy.
