Its hurricane season!

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, the video game Monster Hunter Freedom 2 for the PSP has sucked my life away (and that of my friends!). Oops!

Anyhow, just a little note that I'll be silent for a while longer--I'm headed off to Florida to visit my best friends! And unfortunately, this guy looks like he'll be hanging around, too. ->

And another storm looks like its brewing... ahh! Fortunately it doesn't look like it'll touch Florida at all, at least not while I'm in town.

Stupid weather! :P

I'll return on Sept. 1st, I have been working on sculptures, just haven't finished anything. ;) Look for more updates then!

WIP - A girl and her monster

I've been working on this (on and off) for far too long! Work kept getting in the way, and to be honest I'd forgotten about it for a little while. Sigh!

One of my new business card designs~ is awesome, and I just found out they're now doing full-sized business cards, with up to fifty images per pack (so in theory, a different image on each card). I'm not going to go that crazy, but I will be doing quite a few different designs to hand out. :)

Violette + Plushie Sweatshop Time

Just a quick sketch--I like where the style is going on this, yay for rubbery limbs! Xavi (my husband) says it feels very French, so I will name her Violette. :)

I couldn't fall asleep last night--I had tons of ideas running through my head. I patterned out a plushie right before we called it a night, so the gears were a churnin'. Probably a bad thing to do right before going to bed, but the ideas were flowing!

Anyhow I'm in the process of patterning out some fun, cute little fat guys--tonight shall be long, I plan on getting quite a few of these made. :) So stay tuned for plushy goodness!

Thoughts of Summer

thoughts of summer, originally uploaded by shellyrodriguezart.

Just an inspiration board. This is what I feel that summer 'is' in my mind right now.

Its fun to 'create' things without actually drawing or painting, its creative but in a totally different way. Exercise those brain muscles!

Topsy & Turvy Tee Shirt PreOrders are OPEN!

I will be doing a small run of these, so get 'em while they're hot! If there's enough demand I'll definitely be getting more printed. :)

However, I do need a certain number of preorders in order to do this--so PLEASE pass this post around to those you think would be interested!

Preorders will be OPEN until Wednesday, August 27th. After that these guys are goin' to the shop!

Topsy and Turvy are my two new monster characters, and they are best friends even though they have different ideas about everything. For instance, Topsy thinks vanilla ice cream is delicious, but Turvy adores Avocado & Chocolate flavor!

These are printed on 100% pre-shrunk cotton, chocolate brown tees, with a three color process.

$25 in the US ($20 + $5 shipping). Please contact me if you're outside of the US and need a shipping quote before you commit.

My Paypal is EMAIL me with your sizing info, which email you use for paypal (if different from your normal email), if you wants a women's or men's cut, and of course your shipping address. :)

Comment here if you have any questions--I'll try to reply ASAP. :)

Topsy & Turvy Concept Linework

Character concepts for a personal project I'm working on. I hope to get them refined and colored tomorrow evening--stay tuned for what my plans are for these little guys!

Hello, World!

I haven't started a blog in a loooong time, I have to admit that this feels a little awkward!

I'm a concept/3D artist for Electronic Arts. I love video games and am a HUGE nerd (obviously), but outside of that I enjoy sewing, sculpting, drawing, dressing up in silly costumes, working out and buying stupid amounts of makeup.

I live in Salt Lake City, Utah, with my husband Xavier (also an artist for EA), and our cat, Captain.

Too bad I'm obviously having an affair with Solid Snake in this photo, haha!
