... and this is why I changed from "some subscription content" to "it's all free, subscribe if you feel like supporting me anyway" ... I haven't posted anything since April, which is really sad. I post regularly to Instagram, if you'd like to follow me there: annranlett

I've been doing creative things though: always working on pet portrait commissions, creating a bunch of miniatures, a mini show of miniatures, an interesting collaborative piece featuring a raccoon scratchboard & plasma-cut steel, scratchboard demos ... All of these are on Instagram.

Here's one of my latest miniatures, a 1.5" square drawing on Ampersand Stampbord of a stuffed-cheeked Eastern Chipmunk. (affiliate links -->) I used Pitt Artist Pens, Micron pens, and a little bit of scratching for this mini piece of art.

I made the mini easel myself: cut it out of 300-lb watercolor paper on my Cricut, then painted it to match. I'm pretty proud of that component, if I do say so myself!

I made an Instagram reel for the easel process, watch it here.
