Hello my dears. I hope you are all doing well today. It's the midweek and currently I have a whole lot on my plate. I finished up with my move yesterday but I still have a lot of things to unpack. I have to get with the utility and service companies, and balance this between my full work schedule at this time. Needless to say, I will simply be swamped for the next few days.
For those of you that have contacted myself for a commission piece, I will be certainly to return swiftly to the work when I can catch a breather. For those of you still interested, the commissions will remain open for a while longer! :)
With all that in mind, I also wanted to talk about the upcoming book of my own, which a link can be found below! Shy Words for Creative creatures is a physical print edition of my first four support mini projects dealing with anxiety, art blocks, personal isolation, bars set in the opposite direction, and a dash of hope with a spoonful of love along the way.
When Magilla's came in contact with myself, they were deeply invested in seeing this work in print. On both our parts this has been an endeavor of love not only to provide the illustrations and words in an alternate format, but at an absolutely affordable price. A price by the way which is also additionally on discount right now for $5.65
At the end of the day, this has never been about the money to me. I'm not looking to make a profit on kindness and truthful words. It's not about the recognition or exposure to additional viewers or interest. More than anything I am hoping the work will find it's way into the hands of someone who is uncertain, who is unsure, who is struggling and needs a little more than what they've been given. someone that needs more love in their heart. If you're interested in buying a copy, that's mighty neighborly of you. If you're interested in spreading the word, then my goodness I'm grateful you took the time and care!
Well I'm quite certain at this point that I'm in too many places at once which obviously means I need to be in even more places than that. These past two days I've been working with extending myself to additional communities and connecting them all together while also...you know...making it harder for myself to be invisible!
However I know there are places I'm still not registering in my brain to tackle on. So here's the big question. Do any of you happen to know of some active communities in art and comics? One way or another I'll be stabbing at my prospects, so if you have any suggestions, go for it!
By the way. Enjoy this spam of all my locations, including this site
A small project for those of you whom may have had any interest in some of the more obscure beings and works from within my gallery. Arbinel And The Dark Dreamers is a digital package of Arbinel and some others you may have taken note of in the frequency of my work. With pages of back lore and personal notes, you may see the much more grim side and reasoning of my artwork and some of it's symbolism.
This package contains 10 Pages of Notes and 7 high quality Print Files of unreleased illustrations.
This is a purchasable package and is for $6.00 USD. Every purchase will help towards funding Doc Diventia's Book for Kids Who Are Now Adults But Might Be Kids...Again.
If you are interested, please leave me a personal note of your email in the paypal notes or in private message! This will allow me to send you the Package upon receiving the payment.
Hello and thank you kindly for taking of your time to read.
In minor and saddening news, the donations period for Doc Diventia's Book for kids who are now adults but might be kids again has came to a close on IndieGoGo. With only 5% of the goal met, it unfortunately leaves a grand and empty hand for the book to see any light of day. For those whom may have donated on that platform for the lower Tiers, I can assure you with little competition, you'll be making an appearance on those pages based on the reward tiers~ I thank those who contributed to the efforts of the campaign and wish you good health.
Patreon however still remains open in account with a whole array of goodies and openings for those whom would wish to help contribute to the production costs of the book. With only 3 Patrons currently in support, I still have a long way to see any progress on obtaining a sufficient funding point to meet with the costly efforts of seeing the pages made. If you are curious, feel free to check it out, look over the offered goodies and perhaps see yourself in one of the raffles being hosted each milestone! Don't forget to spread the word around if you have the inclination. I really mean that. If there has ever been a time I ask for a hand, it is now to see this through.
In other points of interest, I have slowly been filling away for physical prints and the likes with Society6 and Redbubble productions for high quality output of my work. For those of you whom may fancy a little bit of art on your walls, or hidden away where no other can find them, feel free to check out my store front pages.
Every bit of profit I would see remains on funding for the book so if you're so inclined, feed my horror.
In other points of interest, I may slightly be a bit detained as I finalize the paperwork and discussions concerning a bit of a nasty accident with my vehicle. While I remain in better health, it has certainly been quite the ride ( Pun slightly intended. Not really. ) dealing with quite unreasonable individuals. ( Yes, Yes we know they admitted fault to the accident and totaled your vehicle, we are just figuring the percentage of that admitted fault. " " ....the hell does that mean...? " ) Needless to say I may be a bit tied by the hands while I figure better points of transportation and financing however this should interfere poorly with my uploading period.
This concludes the current spectrum of events and goings on. I once more thank those of you whom take the time and would ask a final time to perhaps spread word if you may on the book project. Would be a treat to see a physical copy of this book project see it's way into unfortunate hands.
Recently I had posted that I am to be one of the select attending in hosting some of my work in person at The Spectrum Event In Las Vegas. Well here comes the fun part of being an artist. I'm a man with a rather limited range of funding. What this means especially for me is that I must be the utmost selective of what I do decide to print for a selling feature at the show.
I am filled with a deep bias for my work. Being straight to the point I am never truly satisfied with what I do and in a greater sense do not see what might be considered especially a stand out. With that in mind if there are any works in my gallery some of you would believe I should especially put out for sale I would love to hear it in the comment section below. I have until the third Of April to figure a small selection with limited print. Help me out and I'll love you forever! I also wish to state that if any of you wish to help me out another way I'm doing my best to get the word spread around about this event. The best way is by providing this link which gives a small taste of what my art is, what the RawArtists Community is and ticketing information.
For every ticket purchased it not only helps support the hosting community of this event but also assists in my personal expense needed to be there at all and have this chance. If you have the time please spread the link around, maybe even a link to this journal. This is my first shot at being something more and I hope I start things with a blast. :)
Oh wow look who actually is starting to get with the times!...I think. I'm not truly sure anymore. Regardless I do have a tumblr page now for those whom take interest but do be warned, I will be slowly but surely populating it with both upcoming and older works. If any of you would wish to spread the word that would especially help me gain possible new grounds with extending to different audiences. http://shane-frost.tumblr.com/ While I'm here, I might as well drop my twitter page too because, well, why not?! https://twitter.com/callmedocFrost
I find myself a most rather quiet individual whom at times becomes rather caught up with their various activities and shyness. I do take notes of the words some of you say and am always most greatful that you take the time to view my work. It always brings a most warm smile to my face to hear of your opinions and views, and as always I do hope you enjoy my future work. Good health and happiness to you all~
Hello and thank you all for your time. Now what this indeed about is the matters I've finally begun upon a service as selling some of my work from my gallery. With so many idea's however I tend to rather get lost on what was a favorite, and what was not. This is where you all can help me so very much! Hell a lot of you are like family that I silently stalk and so I'd trust in your opinions vastly.
Now I'm not telling any of you to go through every single one of my works, nor am I demanding your help in any of this. However I am asking if any of you would especially wish to see a particular picture be brought to a high quality framed print then by all means do leave a comment on which particular work and why! :)
The vendor to which my current works can be purchased are provided in this link http://society6.com/DocDiventia
The current pricing ( Which will never be increased! ) is 18.72. That is in fact for a high quality and detailed print ( 10" x 8" )
The actual price was kept as low as possible without loss, as I chose to reserve 6.00 per actual print sold.
This does not end there with prints however! There are a number of various other size values, canvas and framing choices, and even the possibility of various other outlet options. T-shirts, Ipod/Itouch/Ipad/Laptop skins, Tote Bags, Hoodies and even Pillows.
This all however greatly depends on how well I can provide the best qualities of my art from my gallery, which also can be greatly helped by you! I really will be thankful to those of you who wish to take time out of your schedules to help myself, and if you cannot, please do link a friend to this journal so I can possibly finally get my feet off the ground and following my dreams! :)
Have been away for some time. Have returned with work which is in need to be brought down. Give it time and it will come.
