I’ve lowered the prices of the majority of all paintings and drawings on my art site made before 2007. Many are now as low as $15- $45.
Some examples are Princess and dog, Apple, The snake pit, The horse on the meadow, Rapunsel, Pretty people, The journey and Christopher Walken, but if you want to see them all just browse all originals for sale starting from the back.

The hunt II

This painting was very inspired by a She-ra doll prototype called Jewelstar which was never released.

I have added six new print lots to my Etsy shop. I also lowered the prices on the two remaining old print lots. One old lot of three prints now costs less than buying one new print on my art site so it’s a great deal.
While I was at it I also cut the prices of my pinup postcard sets in half.

Some more doodles from school. These were so small that I put them all together in one picture, they weren’t actually on the same page. There’s a Fantasia centaur, a Playboy bunny and one of those crystal clusters I love so much. The naked girl inspired the pose of my painting Poison.
