The Kuroko books are offline for a while because I goofed the listing up! They will be back soon.
Wait, it’s dangerous out there! Take this Minecraft field journal before you go! With it, you can plan builds, jot down coordinates of awesome places, and make a map so you don’t get lost! Or, just sketch in it like any other sketchbook!
Features an original linocut relief print on the cover, 120 pages (40 mixed media, 80 grid paper), and a bookmark ribbon! Colophon in the back states maker and edition number. This specific book is edition #1!
Hi guys, sorry it’s been quiet around here. Brittany’s been hard at work and I’m actually graduating (!!!) this semester so it’s been pretty busy!
Currently we’re set to go for Anime-Zap and Kitsune Kon. Still waiting on the verdict for Anime Milwaukee and No Brand. Having some car trouble but I’m hoping we’ll get road-worthy by January.
We now have a Society6 store! You can purchase prints and other goods of our art!
Brittany is working on the next legendary bird print to go with Articuno. I’ve got a Pumpkin Scissors and Natsume Yuujinchou print in the works myself!
We have a larger balance between manga sketchbooks and non-manga sketchbooks. We’ve also been making tiny books! Expect some more variety in our books, and hey, if you’d like to donate your old manga magazines, we’ll gladly give you a free sketch in exchange!
I’ve got to get back to class now, so it’s back to work!
Yo! So you may have noticed we’ve gotten quiet recently. Or rather, even quieter than usual. That’s because Jess has gone back to school!
Wheeeeee. -flat cheer-
We’ll still be uploading items, but now we’ve got some art to make, for art shows and cons. I’ll try to get some WIPs up when we have them!
The wings of freedom! Recon Corps/Survey Corps/Scouting Legion — whatever flavor you prefer, you’ll feel pretty cool with this 5.5 x 8in sketchbook. It’s got black fake leather covers and the insignia is embedded into the cover, with the edges flush with the cover. There are 60 pages of blank white mixed media paper inside.
HEY GUESS WHAT? You know that book we just listed? Yeah, that’s right, it’s got copic art drawn directly onto the cover! You know the implications of that, right?
We will now be offering copic sketchbook commissions at Anime ZAP!! 2014.
We’ll be offering them online too of course, I just need to make a new book to take photos of. There will be TWO options: Simple and Complex. Each book will be a standard 6x9 inch book, with about 40-50 pages. Simple will mean something along the lines of having a character on the front and one on the back. Complex will be something like the SNK book we just listed; there’s a full composition, full color, perhaps multiple bodies, whatever you so desire.
Simple copic book commissions will be $30 USD. Complex commissions will be $45.
Our reasoning behind these prices are that a book like this typically goes for $20 on our shop and we typically sell commissions about $15-20 at cons, so you’re actually getting a bit of a deal getting the two combined. We’re a little sorry the price is so high, but the SNK one alone took me about 3 hours to draw and color so, uh, believe me, the price is VERY worth it!
While it may be a few more days before I can get an official listing up, I am however taking a pre-order commission for one, especially for Simple types, so I can have more sample photos! If you’re interested, pop us an email at contact[at]pinstripes-studios.com! You can send one via Tumblr if you want but Tumblr eats messages sometimes so this is safer!
