💖 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!

[Caption: “[Fans] are going to enjoy you for you. They’re going to want to go on this journey of watching you grow, watching you develop, watching you be you, but around them as well. That’s [the kind of] interaction [that makes] being a fan fun.”]
