!!-ILLUSTRATION GIVEAWAY TIME-!!

I have recently hit 2,000+ followers! Thank you so much!!

So I’m holding my very first illustration giveaway! Please read everything below if you want in!

THE PRIZE!

A fully colored character illustration by me! Any character of your choice, existing, fan-made, or original, with up to 2 characters total. You can request a specific style, (like art nouveau or super cartoony) or I can work in mine! This is basically a $200 illustration commission from me, but free for you! All of my commission rules as to what I will and will not draw apply, (tl;dr - just keep your requests clean and tasteful).

  • Have your ask box turned on.
  • You must be following me. The purpose of this giveaway is to thank you, my followers!
  • Reblog this post to your main account for +1 entry. I will not be counting likes, and will not count reblogs made to side blogs.

You have until Thursday May 1st, 2014 at 9:00pm PST to enter! I will choose one winner at random using random.org and will immediately contact the winner through their ask box. If no response is received within 48 hours, that person automatically forfeits the prize and I will choose another winner by repeating the process.

お菓子風ハムスターフィギュア 詰め合わせ
Twitterに載せると毎回たくさんのRTをしていただくフィギュアたち。
素材は樹脂で実物は歯が立たないほど硬いです( ´∀`)もちろん食べれません。フェイクスイーツの一種です(多分)。
ハムスターってもちっぽいよな…あ、プティングっていう毛色のハムもいるしプリンぽくしてフェイクスイーツ用のクリーム盛ってやれ!と言う割と乱暴な発想から生まれました。笑

Candy-like Hamsters. 2013-2014
Material is resins. Don’t eat.

Kawaii! These little kitties aren’t just unbelievably cute, they’re also edible. They’re made by a Japanese mom named Caroline for Neko no Hi or Cat Day, which takes place each year on February 22nd.

Cat-shaped treats seem like a wonderful way to celebrate how much you like your feline friends. These treats are cat-shaped nerikiri, which is “a traditional Japanese sweet made by mixing shiro-an (sweetened white bean paste) with gyuhi (made of glutinous rice, similar to mochi but softer).” Caroline sculpts her nerikiri cats and kittens into various sizes and poses and then uses edible dyes to add distinguishing markings and fine details. She even makes little accessories for them, like tea sets and pillows for extra-comfy lounging.

Based on the effort that goes into making these sweets, it seems likely that Caroline’s family probably has at least one real life cat of their own and we’re guessing it leads a wonderfully spoiled life.

Artist Rebecca Jewell uses a painstaking process involving a photo-plate, ink, an etching press and ethically-sourced feathers to create these beautiful and incredibly delicate works of art. Her creations are inspired by the native birds and feather artifacts that she first encountered living in New Guinea for a year in 1982. It was there that she learned how important both the birds and their feathers are to the native people and saw the amazing headdresses that they made.

"Of the pieces she says: ‘Over the past years I have drawn and painted feathers and birds, and explored how they have been used to enhance and decorate humans. I am also aware of the plight and precarious status of many species, which I wanted to represent in the delicacy of the image on the feather.’"

Rebecca is now an artist in residence at the British Museum, Department of Africa, Oceania and the Americas where she “creates work that explores the shared histories between people that create certain artifacts, the explorers, anthropologists and travelers who obtain them, and the museums that house them.”

Visit Rebecca Jewell’s website to check out lots more of her amazing artwork.
