Hey Critters! I HAVE HORRIBLE NEWS. Just kidding, but no it kind of sucks pertaining to dresses. So as a few of you guys may know I have a neurological disorder; a lot of the creations I make are product of coping with it. I like to keep myself busy to try and forget about the physical symptoms. The problem is my sewing machines triggers the physical symptoms, I wear earplugs or earbuds, it works, but now since my company is growing I cannot physically keep up with the orders or fill them quickly enough (even with the help I have received from a few buddies). SO this brings me to the lame news where I tell you that you have to wait longer for dresses. Anyway, it wasn’t only my condition holding up production, my custom fabric manufacturer was constantly blowing it with my deadlines. With all of this said it has led me down a long road of finding a new fabric manufacturer and a garment manufacturer because I can no longer keep up with the sewing by myself. The reason the dresses are taking so long at this point is between color matching, fabric testing, sample testing, new designs, digitalizing, shooting, emails, phone calls, whoaaaa it’s a lot. And there is probably another four-week wait until I have something in my hands, but I am working hard to do stuff in between and change that. Talk about frustrating on my end. I know what you guys are thinking and its WHERE ARE MUH DRESSES?! …they are coming don’t yell it hurts me…
Thank you everyone for the love and support, I have a lot of cool things in the works in the meantime that I think you will dig! And the dresses are worth the wait believe me !
For some reason on a lot of my personal projects i really really enjoy doing them in full crazy colors! Color makes me happy and its therapeutic to me to work with them. Today I was posting a photo to Instagram of a doodle, going through every filter-per usual, when I discovered that my rainbow piece was actually shaded perfectly when put into gray scale! Kinda cool when you think about it! Anyway, here is the piece.
NEW NEW NEW! I had a lot of requests for more plugs and unisex plugs, and even galaxy plugs. So I put my own spin onto the “Galaxy Plug” by adding hand laid iridescent gold detailing and a custom designed Galaxy. I will call it KOALA…galaxy of awesome…! Check them out at KoalaArtAndDesign.com!
New Year, New Gear!
A lot of crazy stuff happened this last Holiday season with my company; not only did it get out of hand but it exploded! I have been sewing for weeks now and shipping hundreds of orders, its unbelievable. I can’t thank everyone enough for sharing my products and spreading the word about them. You guys rock, thank you so much.
ANNNND I know what is on everyone’s mind too. More gamer dresses? The answer is YES. WAY MORE! I love designing and I love video games, skulls, painting, flowers, the color black, and a mass of other stuff that I plan to incorporate into new and upcoming products. I can’t wait to show you guys! However, I am at that point where I have to transition into bringing in “help” with the company, so everything I want to do may be coming a little slower than I want currently because I literally can’t handle the demand alone. Not to mention I am already booked up with commission work into end of March and the year has barely started. O_O! Insanity, I tell you!
Although, in all of this chaos I have almost lost touch with the very root of my companies beginnings, personal art. With this said every other week, no matter what, I plan to do a quick or long personal project to keep the ideas flowing and my mind fresh ;)! So here is the first piece of the year!
I can’t wait to see what this year brings! I hope all of yours are amazing as well :)!
