Good news! My piece is for sale right now at Q Pop Shop right now! Shoot them an email at email@example.com to inquire about it!

I really do wish you'll start selling more of those and anything you feel like because that is a lot of talent in there!! And a question: How did you come up with that specific technique, like using paper and putting them inside a frame??
That is incredibly sweet of you to say, thank you so much! I hope everyone knows how much it means to me to read such nice comments about my work…..I have literally yet to achieve anything, but to know that something I’ve made is enjoyed by someone other than myself is a dream come true for me, honestly. So thank you!
Anyways, so the good news (for non-ECCCers) is that my Sailor Moon piece will be for sale at Q Pop Shop in LA starting April 5th as part of their upcoming show: Magical Girl Heroines: Sailor Moon and sailor senshi, which I’m guessing will eventually be for sale online if it doesn’t sell at the show! Which is bad news for ECCCers :( This is a VERY RECENT development, which I didn’t plan on at all, considering I had already said I was going to have it available at ECCC…..so I hope no one is mad at me!!!! The good news for ECCCers and everyone else is that ECCC and the Q Pop show are pretty much my debut for everything, meaning I’ll have a ton of original work for sale (right now my count is 12 original pieces at the moment) ranging from weapons to cute sparkly kawaii things……all made of paper! And like I said before, whatever doesn’t sell at the con will be available online!
And the whole paper sculpting and throwing it in frame thing, all credit goes to Brittney Lee for that (speaking for myself of course). I can confidently speak for most paper artists out there that she is at the top of the list when it comes to inspiration in this medium. I first discovered her paper cut pieces in 2009 and I was just completely blown away. If I hadn’t seen her work, I probably would not being creating any art whatsoever.
swimmingwithsirens said: Another question! What kinds of paper do you use mostly?
Over the past couple of years Bazzill Basics has become my absolute favorite, with Coredination Foundations coming in a close second. The color and quality of Bazzill, to me, are just perfect. Some colors of Coredination, in my experience, have had a tendency to fade or stain very easily, so I often use it hesitantly. Canson is great, but I can usually only find it at a couple of art supply stores that are a little outta the way from where I live, and usually when there’s a color I like, it’s always super thick card stock, which is very very very hard to cleanly work with at the scale I like to make things. Fabric, craft, and art stores are usually where you can find all three brands.
All that said though, I’ll take whatever I can find, wherever I can find it…..as long as it gives me the look that I want. I have a huge stock of paper that I’ve compiled over the years and a whole lot of it I have no idea where I bought it or what company even makes it because it’s not listed. If I ONLY used Bazzill and Coredination, I would find myself having to compromise a lot with my pieces on things like color (WHICH IS HUGELY IMPORTANT TO ME) due to my limited options, which can affect the look of your pieces immensely in the end.
ALSO, I’ve said this a lot on my Tumblr for people who have asked similar questions, but if you find paper that you like, buy as much as you can of it, in a full spectrum of colors!!!!!! Worst mistake I ever made when I was just starting with paper was buying 1 sheet at a time. Fast forward 4 years and a special shimmer-paper that I love to use (90% of the Sailor Moon and LOZ pieces are made of it) is no longer carried anywhere and the company that makes it won’t return my emails inquiring about it…..and I’m literally down to scraps now. 5 sheets of everything will last you forever and the great thing about this medium is that materials are fairly cheap! Hope this all helps!!!!
Anonymous said: How much are you selling your sailor moon piece for? I heard you sell originals for about seven hundred. Would it be considered an original?
I’m not too sure where you heard $700, but I did mention that it will be in the several hundred dollar range. I haven’t come up with any exact price points yet and probably won’t until we’re about a week from ECCC, just because I’m trying to do a whooooooole lot all at once right now. That said, if you saw my last post here on Tumblr, things have changed a bit concerning the sale of my Sailor Moon piece…….exciting for me, but sad news for people who were looking to buy it at ECCC :(
