Some updates on Nishicon, my visit to the USA, Inktober, new rats, and plush commissions :aww:
First off, Nishicon was nice! It was much smaller than Abunai! con, especially regarding the visitor numbers, but it was still a success. I met a couple of really nice people, which was honestly the highlight of the weekend. I've had a lot of fun! :D I had stickers, plush charms, notebooks, and plushies! Some Eeveelution plushies sold, as well as a Lion and Kurama. The others will be posted on Etsy when I return from the USA in the week of 23 October.

Which brings me to my second point: my family and I are going to Atlanta, GA, to visit our cousins for a week. :la: I think I'll have internet there, but how much time there'll be to use it I dunno xD I'm so excited and nervous, especially because of the loooooong plane flights, switching planes, and lots of waiting. I'll probably be a wreck when we arrive but whatever! I've been there before but that was like 5 years ago? So I'm super excited to see what it's like now and to document everything with my younger sister :giggle: Cameras at the ready!

Inktober is still going well, daily uploads are on my Instagram and Tumblr accounts and probably here after it's finished. Feel free to send prompts, suggestions for animals or fanart. I don't guarantee that I'll draw them, but some inspiration can definitely help :) Or to commission an inktober work of your own character(s) is also an option :)

You may know that I had 4 pet rats, and that by now, my two eldest have passed away. The younger ones are now 1 year old and I'm going to get two more youngsters after I come back from my vacation. They are just the cutest things <3 One of them I fell in love with instantly has white fur and dumbo ears, ruby-red eyes and a perfect grey little ferret mask on her face! She will be called 'Ruby', of course :heart: The other one I'm not sure which I can get, but she'll also be white with agouti or grey markings, depending on which one is available. I seriously cannot express my love for rats, they are simply wonderful :hug:

As for plush commissions, with things calming down convention-wise (I may still attend a one day con in November) I will be ready to accept new plush commissions after my vacation. :la: There are only two left, for Lortsky and dazethewolf, both of which I'm working on now. So yeah, it'll be fun to do some commissions again soon :D

Hi! :)
My name is Kristel, I'm a 22-year-old Archaeology student from the Netherlands with a passion for the visual arts! I love drawing and plushie-making and am fond of history, animation and fantasy. I want to specialize in Mediterranean Archaeology and am especially interested in the Italian middle ages (the communes). :aww:. Besides that I love creating art. I have a fondness of mustelids and rodents, and tend to be drawn towards the lesser-known small mammals, and animals with a reddish fur. Some of my favourite shows and books are: Steven Universe, Avatar (The last Airbender and Legend of Korra), Fullmetal Alchemist (Brotherhood), Harry Potter, His Dark Materials, and many Disney and Studio Ghibli movies. I really love Pokemon as well. Feel free to talk to me, I love meeting people with similar interests :D

I love those watercolour drawing. (I also bought a few stickers on Abunai but am afraid to waste them by placing on a sub-par place)
