New Goodies, Pt.1 : BUST CRAFTACULAR

Nearly a year later and we are back on the blog with a catchup of what’s going on over at Merry Happy Studios. This is going to be another super visual post. 🙂

BUST 2013

Does this picture look familiar? It should because the previous blog post also started out with a pic similar to this. Once again Merry Happy Studios was showcasing our goods at the Bust Craftacular @ Maker Faire this year. We didn’t have any rain but it was a big dusty weekend. Either way it was fun and great seeing the reactions to our new products; especially from kids who are unrestricted with their emotions.

First in the new products list, which is not for kids but that didn’t stop them from exclaiming “We should get that for Daddy!”

Beer Bag
Coffee

Adding to the line of Grandma tote bags, I debuted 2 new grandpa “drinks” totes. COFFEE + BEER. Yum.

I created a bunch of tiny gift-able items that kids could afford. Things like postcards, pin back buttons and stickers. ^_^

These were eaten up! So happy about that.

More pictures to come in a follow up post… Going to force myself to get back on track with this blog.

And finally wanted to mention that I launched a brand new web shop 1-2 months ago. Other than my etsy, you can now buy directly from http://merryhappystudios.com/

New Web shop Thanks for stopping by and being patient with my post!

February 2012

I recently brought a new camera. A Olympus E-Pen PM1 to be exact. I wanted to upgrade my point and shoot to something that will take crisper detailed pictures without the price and size of a DSLR. I’m liking it so far. The only down point to it is that the indoor shots are not that great. It has a red/yellow muted hue to it and still hard to fix in photoshop. In the daylight here are the results I got.

Reprinted these little guys because they were so popular.

Anything with a yellow tint seems hard to translate on this camera.

Parfait postcards. Did a bit of retouching to this pic.

So far these are all pictures of product shots I needed to take for my shop. I’m heading on out to China this coming April. Maybe I can share my beautiful pics then. And for those in the New York City area, I’ll be at the Spring Anime festival at NYU’s Polytech campus. Hope to see some familiar and new faces. I have a booth there as an artist and it will be my debut at a convention 🙂

I just got my huge comic book order and I’m giddy. Going to rip open the package and read. Will take pics later for comic book fans.
