Its Friday...that means Friday Finds at my Etsy store. Only thing's FRIDAY FRENZY! i slashed all the prices in my shop to $20! 
I added new collages to the store! and i'm getting ready to change the look for the store as well.

i'm trying to make a Crafty Katie website ....ok..not the easiest thing to do. ...i wish i knew website lingo...that would make it so much easier. but i take one step at a time...and go at my own pace...i want to be able to do it for myself, so that if something happens i can fix it myself!...

i'm setting up local craft shows for the SOMA Artisan's Guild...i believe the first show will be mid September. I'm always on the hunt for new venues and new and cheap ways to market the group (and myself) :)

I'm working on streching the canvas for the family of robots that are due in a few weeks.

i have started 2 new collages one for dog lovers, and another for the cat lovers out stay tuned!

Oh and i almost forgot...starting Wednesday...... i'll be having WEEN Wednesday! WEEN inspired art for sale..a new piece each week

Customizing a Robot Family

Customizing a Robot Family

I was commishioned by a local family to make a  robot family portrait.

Portraying each member of the family(including the dog).

I met with the family to get an idea of their personalities and what they wanted to see in their robots.

i asked them simple questions to get to know them ie: If you had no responsibities and you could do anything you wanted - what would you do? What do you do for a living? Name your top 3 fav movies and bands.

After the initial meeting i headed to my studio to start sketching 

i emailed the family with the first set of sketches , asked them to give me feedback, and any changes that needed to be made.

I met again with them the following week so that they could see the sketches in person and make any last changes.

I'm back in the studio with the final changes, and getting ready to put them on canvas.
