Hello my friends and fans,
Firstly, I'll start this journal update with thanks to all my dedicated fans who have followed me from the start and my thanks and hellos to all my new fans who have found my little gallery on DA.
My gallery here is a little slice of the internet where I yak and chat and post about things I'm working on. I love project work (as my subscribers on FB know already) and this year has been a wondrous adventure full of photo shoots and adventures that I'm so thrilled I was a part of. Whether it's as a costumer, a photographer, costume contributor or simply a supportive network - there was much that was explored and some of it deserves some journal time here on DA.
But before I get into new news, a reminder that AtticRaiders cannot accept custom orders. I'm booked solid you guys - all the way until December 15th 2013. I love you muchly. Thank you for this wonderful problem!
To see what is available, please visit my online etsy shop AtticRaiders etsy.com/shop/AtticRaiders
Myself personally am very boring - it's my work that makes life so rich and wonderful and my work has let me explore and try some very interesting new things.
The first piece of new news that I'd like to mention is I've been working as the artistic director for a graphic novel project for 8 months already. Four months ago a publishing house caught wind of the project and myself and my novel partner Duke found ourselves at tea with the owner of Edge Publishing House inquiring about our work the weekend of the Edmonton Expo (September 28 &29th)...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Are you on FACEBOOK?~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
If you are, hey - news of the results about the graphic novel inquiry will be posted to my page so come visit the profile for current news and other fluff that's happening.

This year marked the first time not once but -twice- I've sold out completely of stock at a convention. Most conventions I have a little bit of stock left over with maybe 85% of it sold. Since I work full time as a Steampunk artist I can say with confidence that I bring a lot of stock to conventions; I'm constantly making on average 150-300 pieces for a show.
Thanks to you my friends and fans, lots of lovely things have found new homes and new owners to love them as much as I loved making them. Thank you everyone for such flattering affection for my work <3
Selling out at a show once is something to celebrate but twice in a row is a small miracle in my mind and I'm so flattered that my work has found such a loving fan base to adore it.
Also this year my work made it onto the big screen and was purchased again by the TV show "Lost Girl".Custom Goggles and eyewear made by yours truly will be appearing Season 6, episode 4: winter 2013.
There are a few more things under wraps and until I have a confirmation, my lips are sealed. BUT! Join me and friends on my FB page for up to date information about my work and the adventures I find myself involved in!
Thank you to each and everyone of you my fans for your support over these past 4 amazing years. I look forward to what the next 4 years of adventure will bring!
Cheers n Gears:
