     Ok so I wanted to do something fun for you all for easter so here it is. I am going to be holding a Beasteregg hunt. Basically I am going to be hiding clues all over the net and the first person to find them all is going to win a prize!!! A pretty cool one too. There may be several prizes depending on who wants to play.

    The hunt is going to start on Friday morning and ends when the last egg is found. Since i paint animals a Beasteregg is more run then a regular old egg. So I am thinking people should sign up for this. If anyone wants to hunt email me at [email protected] and put beateregg hunt. You have until Thursday 11:59 pm to register with me.

     Well I am about 50% with my second of 7 paintings which is pretty cool. All I can say about it is that it is a dragon piece. I will be working on it for part of the day. Johnnie and I went through SO many figurines last night. There are still MORE MORE MORE, then we order more and then there are even more. I am going to be signing my name in my sleep soon I think. Thank GOD I didn't keep my maiden name. Funny thing about that as soon as I ditched Speranzella I got a bunch of licensing, even from companies that said no not a month before... apparently Ash Evans is easier for everyone. I have some DIY vinyl figures coming to the house as I have been invited to be in a designer toy gallery show in NYC. Basically these little vinyl guys come blank and I just paint/alter them and they are going in a competition and a gallery show in New York. None have come to the house yet and I need to have them shipped in by March 31st so as soon as they get here I better get to work on them. for those in the know I will be altering a 7in Munny, a 4 in Dunny and a Bizarregoyle. If you have NO idea what I just said you can read an article here:http://actionfigures.about.com/od/designertoys/a/Designer_Toys.htm You can buy Munny's here: http://www.kidrobot.com/2008/munny/ Though I got some pretty rockin deals on EBAY and didn't pay full price for anything. It should be pretty cool I will be sharing pics when they are ready. Johnnie should be doing the Valentines day project so that it is ready by the weekend. We just want to finish these frackin figurines so we can order more and torture ourselves all over again. We are sick like that. I also wanted to say I will NOT be attending The Valtentines day show or the earlier one in March. There where some conflicts. My first show of the year still is Imagicon 2009 where I will be a special guest. I have 65 days to get ready and go to Alabama. We will be offering up the originals from my secret project and a lot of cool stuff in the Art Gallery as well as being there in full force in the dealer room. Oh I also want these perfume oils GONE so they are all buy one get one free. Also my retired statuary is 50% off while supplies last. Well guys that is all for today. Have an awesome one :)

  • New Year

     There is something about the start of a new year that makes the air feel like there is magic in it. Excitement crackles like electricity. Perhaps it is the newness, the possibilities or the fact that we get to start over. Everyone deserves a fresh start, to learn from mistakes and work toward their future. So tonight when this year expires and a new one is welcomed in with fanfare and kisses, I would like to wish you a fresh start and a the hope of a new beginning.  This new year I do have some goals I want to focus on. I am really looking forward to meeting tasks head on, improving my art and expanding my business into the best it can be. We have come a long way since we started with a little card table at a local show (we had 10 prints and a bucket of buttons) (remember Shane you where there) but we still have farther to go, more things to achieve and new levels to rise to.  I want to thank you all for your kind words, encouragement and appreciation over this year. My friends and fans keep me going when art is hard, sales are down and inspiration doesn't seem to be coming. Thank you all for your support and friendship. It all means the world to me. I have a feeling that 2009 is going to be a big one and I can't wait to get started. Remember if you are on my mailing list you are entered into a drawing for a FREE original painting we will be picking at midnight! Sign up if you haven't entered http://www.ashevans.com Enjoy the new year and look forward not behind.  Have a wonderful one guys and I will post again next year!

     Hi Everyone,

     
    I have come to realize that I have WAY too many original art pieces kicking about here and that is hindering any new art I may be creating. So EVERY original I have is on SALE. Some very drastically reduced. There are several pieces under 100.00. I really want to clear all of these out to make room for new art and merchandise.
     
    Buy here : http://www.phoenixxfirestudios.com/catalog.php?category=2
     
    I have some painfully old pieces still around that I don't even have on the site. Several gryphon pieces and the like. I am willing to let them go for 50.00 plus shipping. email me for more info if you are interested [email protected]
     
    I think with things more cleared out I will be free to create more original pieces. 
     
    Have a good day everyone.
