💖 HOWDY TUMBLR BABES 💖

After taking a massive financial hit from a now defunct publisher (which means having done all the work for what amounted to zero pay in the end, ON TOP OF having to buy back our IP for $2,000) @neekaneeks and I are teaming up to bring you:

Catarina’s Collection:
Calaverita Inspired Enamel Pins!

This is our VERY FIRST KICKSTARTER TOGETHER! I’m very exited to get back to work and to bring you all this LOVELY SET OF PINS!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/218329115/catarinas-collection-enamel-pin

Thanks for all the support you guys have shown me, and I can’t WAIT to share the everything I’ve been working on! The terrible experience I had with that now-closed-publisher hit me a lot harder than I’d anticipated, so being able to bring you guys artwork again is kind of really uplifting 😭💖💖

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!
