Wild Chibis Appear!

The previous post ended with a preview of June's small-ish COMC shipment, but these oversized cards/mini paintings from my recent impromptu Twitter #artswap with @chibi_celina just came in yesterday and they are so freakin' rad I had to bump them up the list.  Behold!

She-Hulk, Rogue, and Starfire!
They all measure somewhere in the 3x5" range, with Rogue being slightly larger than the others and on lighter stock.  You can't really tell in the scan, but most of Starfire's skin & a lil of her hair also has this amazing shimmery effect that is makes her even more mesmerizing in person.

If you like these, you can probably hit up Celina at the above link to her Twitter and see about commissioning her, or possibly work out an #artswap of your own if you also happen to be an artist.  She's a cool cat, and as you can see, she does great work!  I'm delighted to finally get some of her famous chibis (the first time we swapped, I got a more traditional piece, which she also does well, if the chibi style isn't really your thing).

That's all for this one.  Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy your Independence Day celebrations safely.  Packs are hard to open when you're missing a thumb (h/t @JunkWaxTwins on Twitter for that joke).

Roll that stone away.. ♫

Who Knew...

...that the weekend I was talking about in my first post was actually six+ months away?  Well, here we finally are.  Blog attempt 4.0 (at least) is finally set to happen.  Well, briefly anyway.  Don't call this a comeback, and don't think of it any kind of great big meaningful return, for I am only passing through.

An unfortunate, and self-inflicted (of course), event I've chosen to use as an opportunity merely presented itself as an excuse for a brief un-retirement from card blogging.  My tablet's camera broke, so I have had to start scanning things in order to document them again.  Thus, I figured I would shake out a few posts worth of content with them, and the scanning I will be required to do over the next few months as well.

It will all be fine as long as I don't overburden myself into another lengthy hiatus, as I've done numerous times in the past.  So far, so good on that front.  If nothing else, the handful of posts worth of scans I have on hand should at least see the light of day over the course of the next month or so.

The digressions and explanations have been made, and there's nothing left to say for right now (other than thanks for stopping by!).  So here goes whatever... again.
