animal alphabet in progress
Originally the animal alphabet was part of a typography class assignment, but I was so happy with the results that I've decided to rework them, larger and in full-color, and offer them for sale. I am planning on selling prints of these illustrations in 4"x6" mats, a nice standard size for frames, and small enough so that you can buy a number of letters to spell out words. They're not done yet, but here's a shot of some of my in progress work:
I'll be sure to post as soon as these guys are finished and up for sale in my etsy store!

All KINDS of new products for sale at my Etsy store: a summary!
It seems that I spent a fair amount of time in the first half of the year making new products, because it's taken me quite a while to get all these things photographed and ready for purchase on my store. I'm really excited about all this new stuff, I hope you'll go take a look.
New Necklace Designs
I've got lots of new jewelry available, and more to come soon. My three newest pendant designs, the polar bear, scarlet ibis, and luna moth, are all available on Etsy (although not on the official Stellanova Jewelry site as of yet.)
Next, I am so excited to be able to share with you some of the work I've been collaborating on with the fabulously talented Jeanne Buffa. Jeanne has an amazing eye for color and texture, and a natural gift for sorting through piles of decorative fabric, beads, feathers, broken bits of jewelry and remnants which she assembles into gorgeous wearable art. Each pair of earrings is one-of-a-kind - we make multiples of the same Stellanova Jewelry design (the butterfly, the bee, etc.) but each pair is adorned with different feathers and jewelry depending on what Jeanne has on hand and what she's feeling inspired by.
seahorses, butterflies, swallows

Last fall, I was absolutely delighted when a pair of bird enthusiast friends of mine commissioned me to make a series of bird illustrations for their wedding. They decided that each table at the reception should be identified with a bird image instead of a number, so they chose twelve bird species with special significance to them. I got to draw a wonderful variation of west coast bird species, and with their permission, I have now

And finally, here's a few more images of the new Stellanova Jewelry prints, mentioned a couple posts ago:

Back from San Diego, got some new products on etsy oh boy!
As usual, San Diego Comic Con was an exciting and sometimes overwhelming explosion of comics, art, toys, junk, flashing lights, stormtroopers, tv stars, overly loud sound systems, and teeming hoards of sweating geeks. Despite all the crowds and chaos, however, I had a great time, and I'm always glad I went - just submitted the application for next year's table, in fact!
Here's my yearly Josh-behind-our-table-making-absurd-face booth photo.
So I've finally unpacked, organized, and caught up on sleep enough to put a bunch of new prints and my newest comic up at my etsy store. I'm especially excited to offer prints of my jewelry illustrations, something people have often asked me for and that I've been wanting to make for a long time.
I've also put up my newest comic, The Dreaming Sea Vol.2 - another collection of various diary comics, many of which you may have seen previously on my blog. You can order it on etsy as well!

Going to San Diego comic con with a bunch of NEW STUFF
The time has finally come - I'm leaving Wednesday morning for the epic 5-day nerdfest known as the San Diego Comic Con, INTERNATIONAL! If you were lucky enough to get tickets this year, I hope you'll come by my table in the small press area. You can find small press around row 1800, towards the back of the hall - and as I usually do, I'll be sharing a table (O-13) with Josh Frankel, another artist who makes all kinds of awesome stuff that he will sell to you!
Dreaming Sea, Volume 2
I will be selling copies of my new sketchbook/notebook, published by Heyday Books and Yosemite Conservancy. You can also get it on Amazon, but wouldn't it be more fun to buy it from ME, IN PERSON?
I finished the three new pieces I posted about previously, the scarlet ibis, luna moth, and polar bear. I haven't even had time to photograph the finished jewelry but I'll be putting these up for sale on the web soon as well!
I will also of course be selling many of my other pendants, rings, and cufflinks at the convention, as well as my previous comics. Now that I've typed this all out I can't believe how much I've created in the last few months leading up to comic-con, especially considering we just moved back to Berkeley from Hawai'i last week. WHEW! When I get back, I'll probably sleep for a week.

new jewelry designs debuting at comic con this July!
I've been hard at work lately trying to get a bunch of new stuff together to sell at comic con and beyond. I am working on a new collection of short comics (some of which I've been posting here), a line of Stellanova Jewelry illustration art prints, and three new species to add to the Stellanova Jewelry collection. I will post more about these things as I finish them, but for now, check out my newest designs!
