I hope that you guys are well! I've noticed a little more activity on DeviantArt in the last while, so that is definitely a plus.

Things are going pretty well, lately! I found a gig helping a fellow polymer clay artist with all that fun behind-the-scenes stuff, such as social media, e-mailing, wholesale pitching, pr pitching, etc. I've been doing that stuff for years with my own sculpting, so I figured I'd be pretty decent for the job. It's going to give me something constructive to do when I am not sculpting, which is a plus. Now that I left my other job, I've had quite a bit of free time. Of course that means less money coming in, but sometimes you gotta make sacrifices to save a little bit of your sanity. Retail just wasn't for me, that's for sure.

Don't get me wrong - most people are great! But I would much rather be behind the scenes doing what I do best.

Did I tell you that I started a YouTube channel? People have been telling me for YEARS to start a YouTube channel but I didn't really give it much thought until now. I think I have about ten videos over the past month and a half or so, so you should check me out!

ALSO, I am having an awesome contest on my Facebook page! SO ARTISTS, I know a lot of you aren't on Facebook, but you can still view the contest even if you don't have an FB account. BUT you can send me your entries through DA, as well! Just NOTE me. Here are the rules:

THE MK STEAMPUNKIFIED CONTEST

Do you guys like to draw? Well, I am holding a contest in which you will draw me a steampunk/industrialized animal or object - anything you want. One per person, please. Then, you send me a message through the Monster Kookies FB page and attach the drawing you made. I will add these drawings to a special album here on FB, and on DECEMBER 1st, I will be choosing a winner. What does the winner get? Their drawing will come to life as a one-of-a-kind Monster Kookies figurine.

SO SPREAD THE WORD. SHARE! And get drawing - contest entries will be accepted until November 31st, 11:59pm ET. Make sure to sign the photo, of course. Send me your best!

IF YOU GUYS COULD SHARE THIS ENTRY WITH FELLOW DEVIANTS, that would be awesome! I'm trying to create a HUGE collection of drawings! :) Even if your drawing isn't absolutely amazing, it is the CONCEPT that is most important. <3

AND FINALLY... I am trying to collect points to get a new DA subscription. I really miss mine, and haven't had one for over a year, now. If you'd like to donate points, you can do it here: click here

I am really excited about doing some new sculptures - I've been playing around the copper colours and that lovely green oxidized patina colour. I should have a new mechanical bird in that style up in my Etsy Shop very soon. After that, a MechOwlie in that style will follow. I can't make these MechOwlies quick enough. I've got a bit of a waiting list for them, at the moment...

I've also got a bake sale coming up. I'll be making sweet treats for our local Maker's Market. There was a serious gap for markets during the "off-season" so a fellow foodie came up with the Maker's Market. I will be representing the Sweethart Baking Experiment, which is basically my FB page where I share all my baking. I've always got a lot on my plate, apparently... keeping busy keeps me sane. I'm sure many of you can identify with that! Be good, guys. <3

Damaged Goods by monsterkookies
Damaged Goods
This heart may be small, but it's packed with detail. One side is lined with metal panels and details - including a blue resistor and rivets, while the other side is completely textured. Down the middle runs a gash ripped right through the metal, with a bit of red to accentuate it.

The entire heart is antiqued with black acrylics and then finished with a satin glaze for a slight metal sheen.

This heart is completely three dimensional and detailed on the front, but flat on the back.

Onyx The Plague Rat by monsterkookies
Onyx The Plague Rat
This questionable looking creature is named Onyx and he is my first plague rat. I took the very beings that carried the bubonic plague during the Black Death and melded it with a plague doctor mask. Plague doctors were medical physicians who treated plague patients, often wearing a strange beak-like mask. A little bit of an ironic fusion, don't you think?

Most of his look is very industrial, however there are realistic aspects to him including his fur and little flesh tone feet. He has green menacing eyes that pierce your soul, as well as many textures and metal panels throughout his armor exterior.

He looks like metal, doesn't he? Actually, the entire thing is hand-sculpted from polymer clay with the addition of a few vintage watch parts and then finished with mica powders for an awesome metallic effect. Every little detail is done by hand, such as the many rivets and panels that you see. This rat is sealed with a satin glaze for a slight metal sheen and to keep it safe.

If you want to see a three dimensional view of him, check out this YouTube video that I did, here.

For more pictures of the fella, or to buy the little fella, check it out on Etsy, here.
