Fabric Swatches (and a whole lot of links to buy stuff)!

So, as many of you may know, I am kind of addicted to applying my designs to physical objects. Even more recently, society6 has stopped carrying kids’ sizes, which will be a huge blow to my sales. I went in search of another print-on-demand company that does. We all know of the CafePresses and the Zazzles of the world, but I’m still a little butt-hurt my Geometric Fox design was stolen and put up for sale there. This is not their fault, but the fault of one Mattjkruse. The thief.

OOH! and FUN FACT! You can use coupon code MATTJKRUSE at my etsy shop for 15% off your order! WHAT A STEAL, amirite!?

Anyway, long story short, I have started to get REALLY into fabric swatches. Here is a closeup of my first design that will be available as wallpaper or fabric once I proof the swatches (there are about 15 different color variations of this because I have trouble making executive decisions I AM AN ADULT AND WANT CHOICES!!!).


I know, I know. It’s a kraken. Shocking, right? Well, it was that or foxes…

Clay tentacle

This is an experimental sculpture I’ve been working on for a while. Made with a combination of paper mache and a homemade paper clay recipe. Painted with acrylic, and sealed with a polyurethane.





Now I just have to figure out how to mount it. #thatswhatshesaid #iveseenenoughhentai
