The Art Roundup That Time Forgot: Little Heroes, New Ariel, & Kermit The Dragon??

This week I was scrolling through my old post drafts and discovered an entire art roundup I never posted.

 Seriously, I wrote most of this a whopping seven months ago, then I guess I got distracted by something shiny?


I told John I must be losing my mind, but he says this is just a lovely little quarantine gift and I should just go with it. So here we go, going with it!



 First up, the squee-worthy "Little Heroes" of Will Terry:





I am making noises that are concerning the cats, haha. And there are SO MANY MORE! Go check out the Little Heroes Etsy shop to browse the rest.


******

Cari Corene of Story of the Door has her art on pins, pouches, prints, and plushies:



I especially want to snuggle her little blue cockatiel and purple tiger:


SO CUTE.

Head to her Etsy shop for more - I haven't even gotten to the backpacks, keychains, & scarves!


*****

Next up, the dreamy rich colors of Leanne Huynh:



I really love this set:



Check out the rest of Huynh's prints on Etsy, plus you can follow her on Instagram!

********

Here's one advantage of losing this draft for 7 months: when I first wrote this Emily Cannon didn't have an online shop... but now she does! So now you can get prints of these lovelies:


I can't stop staring at her Wonderland art - check out this Vorpal Sword & Drink Me bottle:
They're so subtle and different, I can't get enough.

Plus here's her gorgeous pastel take on Cheshire!


I don't see this last one in her shop, but I have to include it because it's Wicked awesome:


Head over to her Etsy for the rest, and be sure to follow Emily on Instagram for more.

 ********

John and I just met Asher East last month (err, 7 months ago) at Tampa Comic-Con, which we were astounded to learn was her first ever convention. She's been painting for years, though, and her style can only be described as otherworldly and dreamlike:

 



 Many of Asher's prints were embossed with gleaming metallics or subtle shimmers, and everything was on the most heavenly thick textured paper. Photos truly can't do her work justice.



I was tempted by one of her unicorn frogs; the colors were so vibrant they practically leapt off the
page - pun intended. ;)


Here are two of her newer pieces I had to include, because OH MY CUTE:


 .... and a dragon kitty sticker:
EEEEEEE

Go check out AsherEast's online store here, then be sure to follow her on Instagram for more.


 ********

TerriDragon makes soft sculpture dragons of every fandom imaginable - she must have hundreds! - and they range from hilarious to adorable to borderline genius:

Tin Man and Pennywise. OMIGOSH.

Can you guess these two?


 That's Swedish Chef and Hagrid. (Hagrid as a dragon is really the most appropriate mashup ever, I think he'd be delighted.)

My favorite, though, has to be Kermit:


He's just so perfect! Look at the little wings! Hee!

Head to TerriDragon's online shop to browse all her plush dragons. She's added a bunch of resin stuff to her shop lately, but just scroll past that to see the rest of her dragons.

*****

Now, who wants some free art? Because this time I'm giving away 3 SETS of art, and here come your choices:
