The Art Vuh-blog: Kitty Jack-o-Lantern

Hello! Hello! Hello! =)

I thought it would be handy to start adding new You Tube videos over here. A nice way to keep up with doing them since I tend to collect lots and lots of video footage and don’t get around to actually editing and uploading it until a couple months have passed. Perhaps putting it on a schedule and having the blog to keep me on task will help with it. Plus it gives everyone an easier way to comment or ask questions, I think? Not that that helps the YouTube aggregates or algorithms or whatever that stuff is lol. But I’m not particularly big on that kind of stuff anyway.

Unfortunately I did the voice overs for all of this month’s videos on the same day and I’m developing a cold so there’s a bit of mouth breathing and sniffling lol.. So for that I apologize. It doesn’t help that I’ve gotten a bit rusty. Meh! In case you missed the huge video up there at the top of the page ^^ Here’s a smaller version you can check out instead..

Today’s video is Kitty Jack-o-Lantern. This image will be coming to the shop on the 13th as part of a fun Halloween event with the Markers! Papers! Digis! group. If you’re not already a member you really should pop in and join us. We’re just wrapping up a fun September event ‘Once Upon a Time, A Storybook Critters Challenge’. For this challenge several digi artists offered a few $1 critter digis. I offered a dark and spooky raven which I called Nevermore and came with a few storybook themed sentiments…

Nevermore the Raven by Amanda S Byron

I had a ton of fun getting messy with him too.. In fact I made a beautiful (if I must say so myself!) mixed media canvas with him which I shared a little bit of the making of in this video below. Unfortunately, my voice was a little low in this 🙁 Sorry!!
