Three Halos by Steph-Laberis
Three Halos

Sadly, on this overcast day, I lost my oldest rattie, Al. He's on the bottom of the rattie pile. He lived a very long life and passed on peacefully, but needless to say I am not really myself today and sort of hiding from the world. I did want to give him a special tribute, so even though there are a lot of issues and crappy errors with this piece, it was created in the moment and honors my sweet old man reuniting with his brother and their special lady friend, who each passed one year before him. I told you Al lived a really long time.

Hug your pets, people. Hug them now.

Adoring Betty
Finally got to a very past-due commission for my friend! This is a portrait of her dearly departed hamster, Betty. This design will be made into a pillow! 

Currently I am only planning on making 2 of these special pillows, with one going to my friend and the other put up for auction to help pay off some rattie medical bills. I will let everyone know when the auction goes live.
Sweater Ferret - The Feltie! by Steph-Laberis
Sweater Ferret - The Feltie!
I decided to being one of my ferret illustrations from earlier this year to life in wool! This is for a group show called "Common Threads", and with my piece the common thread (well, common fiber) is wool and I used two different techniques with it to make this guy. His body is needle felted wool over clipped foam and his sweater is knitted wool/wool blend yarn. I have no idea which took me longer, the knitting or the felting, but I am so happy with this guy. It was sad to send him off to the gallery but I am hoping he finds a loving home!

Pirat Trick-or-Treater!
YARRR! This be the last rattie in the bunch! If you really like these guys, you can buy prints of them individually or as a whole set for a reduced price!…

After October 5th, will be carrying them, as I will be traveling and unable to fill orders. Every little bit helps - I have rattie vet bills that need paying! Then again, as a rat owner, there are always vet bills that need paying. Whatevs. Worth it. <3

Big news! Jeannine Schafer and I are going BIG with volume 3 of Snorffles n’ Meeps, and for that to happen we need your help! Please share and reblog this post to get the word out about our campaign! We can’t do it without you guys!

  • Mood: Cheerful
  • Listening to: Ranma 1/2 episodes. Aw yeah.
  • Drinking: Blueberry tea

I am a character designer and illustrator by trade and I also do needle felting and puppet-making on the side.

I do take commissions, but I do not accept points as payment. I also do not do needle felted commissions, as they are very time consuming and it's difficult to land on a fee that is both fair to the artist and to the customer. If you are interested in a 2D digital commission, drop me a note to discuss rates and availability!
