HALLOWEEN IS HERE AT THE TINY HOBO!

Head on over to the HALLOWEEN COLLECTION in my shop sidebar, and you’ll find all sorts of adorable art and accessories that will certainly get you in the mood for some spooking!

SPECIAL BONUS—any purchase of a Halloween item will receive a FREE GOODIE BAG filled with tricks, treats, and stickers! Lotsa stickers! I think it’s terrible that society forces us into believing we’re “too old” to Trick-orTreat or dress up in costumes. I say NAY! I hope that this little gift will help awaken your inner child, and inspire you to be wild and free this Halloween, and every other day of your life. xo

With hugs and haunts,

Valerie The Tiny Hobo

Since many have been asking, my Kickstarter campaign ends on September 8th, at which point, I’ll be mailing out your prizes! I’ve already reached my goal, which means there’s a 100% chance that this project is being funded!!!! WHICH IS AMAZING AND I CANNOT WAIT. 

In the meantime, you still have time to donate if you haven’t already! $1,500 is the absolute bare minimum needed to start this project, so your continued donations are gonna make this project even BIGGER AND BETTER, meaning I’ll be able to offer you a wider array of new and exciting apparel!! 

And plus—there’s something in it for YOU!! Every donation is rewarded with a super awesome gift from yours truly, so make sure you check out what’s up for grabs! Give a little, get A LOT! 

CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT THE CAMPAIGN!

Thank you all so much, for all of the reblogs, love, and support. You’ve helped build this project in ways I never thought imaginable. ♥

ishanijasmin asked:

hihi i was just wondering what art supplies you use (i presume for non digital stuff? i always assumed your art was non-digital, although i could always be wrong). your style is super cute!

Aw thanks dear! I use both digital and traditional methods! For my traditional art, I use Prismacolor and Shin Han markers. For my digital work I usually use SAI. :)

If you’re wondering why I’ve been so quiet lately, it’s because I MOVED! I’ve spent the last week shifting my life into my new shell, much like a hermit crab. 😊 I have a much larger art space and I cannot wait to show you all!! I’ll be back on schedule at the beginning of the week, so it’ll be like I never even left at all. Heehee! Thank you all for sticking with me. The past year has been a whirlwind of incredible opportunities and I simply could not have achieved any of this without you all. You have my infinite love and gratitude. ❤️

CHRISTMAS IN JULY SALE: JULY 29TH-AUGUST 2ND!!!

Too early to be thinking about Christmas?! Not if you’re an Etsy seller!! I’m already writing my lists and checking them twice, decking the halls, and all of that good stuff!

Since my holiday commissions were so popular last year, I decided to start much earlier this year in hopes of reaching more customers looking for that perfect gift!

Since I won’t have as much time for commissions the closer it gets to the holidays, I’m offering a special deal for those of you who purchase NOW—from today through August 2nd, you will receive one FREE Tiny Hobo mini illustration with your purchase of any full size portrait from my shop!! No coupon code necessary, and yes, you can purchase more than one!! 

If you’ve been wanting a portrait from me, now is the time to grab one!! Buy a portrait for you and gift the mini, keep the mini and gift the portrait….or keep them both as a present to yourself!!! You don’t even have to save them until Christmas—don’t worry, I won’t tell Santa! ;P 

Check out my portraits here!
