Pony Deposit

“What’s up?” asked Red.

“I got sacked from my job at Equine Bank,” grumbled Horse.

“Aww, I’m sorry to hear that,” said Red. “What happened?”

“Well, some old lady came in and asked me to check her balance,” grumbled Horse. “So I pushed her over.”

Now I know there’s a fear of horses! Equinophobia!

The only fear I have of ponies is that my hands getting sunburned and a pony mistakes my fingers for carrots. Shetland ponies are lovely until they see orange. Then all bets are off!

I wonder what that’s called… Carroponyfingerphobia?

Fear of Etsy

All of the new listings! ALL OF THEM!

OK, so, I’ve listed 24 items this week, 18 of them are new products. The Triffids, Fuens chicks, Capricorn and the Bugs have all returned. Now accompanied by Pisces, Aires, Leo, Aquarius and more.

Obligatory mid post link: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/LittleFears

Up until now, I’ve sold around 400’ish prints at markets and events in real life. 150’ish prints through comments and emails. Then 9 through Etsy. A tad bad of me there. It means my Etsy store has very little feedback and an awful sales count. So from now on, I’ll be directing all comment and email sales through Etsy. The fees are worth it for the long term benefits of being established on an online market as big as Etsy.

I’m happy to say Red, up there, is my best market stall seller. Usually to adorn a children’s bedroom. I like that. Certainly never intended, but I can imagine having Red on my wall as a kid.

Any-who, yes, here’s the thing. Before Christmas I had an order come in for 250 of these prints. They’re printed on 200 gsm matte card. I kinda miss having the canvas texture effect of my old prints, but the quality of ink absolutely pastes anything I’ve ever printed myself. So much so, I have conscripted all my old prints to the scrap paper shelf in my cupboard. The ink has so much depth to it, it gives the colours a wonderful kapow that has been absent on my older prints.

My good friend Esme, who rides upon a cloud, put in an order for Fuen and the chicklets the week my order was arriving and nobbled the first of the new prints. Despite having to wait a week, she loved the print enough to give me a 5-star rating. If a print’s good enough for a cloud riding Esme, it’s good enough for me.

As always, despite a background in marketing, I have no idea how to market my own stuff. Anyone got an Etsy marketing class for me? Haha.

I figure a link at the bottom of the post is a good start.

Angler

You’ve seen anglers right? Proper scary arse monsters from the deep. Aliens have landed and they’re in our seas dammit! Anywhos, this weeks #Colour_Collective is YInMn Blue. I know right. YInMn Blue. I thought they were just making up colours too.

I really liked the way she turned out. A proper fear-inducing little fear. So I’ve put her hi-res png up for download to all $1 or more Patreons and past and present Ko-Fi supporters. Thanks for all the support gang. You’re all awesome.

Shiki

Introducing Shiki for this weeks #Colour_Collective. A lovely wee lass who thinks Jamie Lee Curtis is awesome and Michael Myers is a tad misunderstood.

Relation Rolls

Finding Leeds – ep. 16

“She went straight to her old girlfriend’s house to try and win her back,” said Lily.

“Ah,” said Sally. “So did you catch her again?”

“Afraid not,” sighed Lily. “They had a row.”

“About what?” asked Sally.

“Her partner’s Japanese food obsession,” said Lily.

“Ah,” pondered Sally. “Sushi left her…”

Trine

I’d like to introduce Trine for this weeks #Colour_Collective. The colour this week is Cardinal Red. I’m never quite sure if this character reminds me of a dinosaur or a bird. I’ve always liked her head shape though.

Tiny Fears

 

We’ll be having a wee break from the Lily and Sally stories this week for five tiny Little Fears horrors. A teeny bit of experimentation with my art style and storytelling. Like Floofy, up there above this text. 

Lily and Sally will return for their last case next week, Finding Leads. In which we find our intrepid duo hot on the heels of a serial killer.

Until then, I hope you enjoy this week’s micro horrors.

Kohl

Darn, Kohl, you are one creepy little bugger… Just a whole bunch of nope!  Submitted for approval to this weeks #Colour_Collective. A Little Fear I’ve had since forever ago and never figured out what to do with him. Until now!
