Hi,

For the last couples weeks I've been pondering what would be the best way to spend my birthday money. I came to the decision that I wanted to commission an artist whose work I love. There are of course a plethora of talented people out there, but in the end I realized I wanted something that could be more than, say, a pretty picture of an OC or fanart, much as I like those.

It was then that I remembered these keychains I'd bought for my mom at ACen this past May, and I thought, "Hey! What if I commissioned the artist of these things to draw my own pet cats? Then, even when they pass away, I'll have something to remember them by besides photos!"

The problem I'm having now is I can't recall who the artist is, nor could I find her(?) through the listed artists on the main page since only a handful of them had websites.

Can anyone help me out? I'd be so very grateful. :heart:

Do you know anymore information about them or their placement? I can try and go through our list from last year, ask them if they are willing to contact you, and see what happens from there, but right now I don't have much to work with. :(

I don't think I'm the person you're talking about, but just on the off chance I'm wrong, I was one of a handful of artists that did keychains. Mine were pretty big (with a choice of round or rectangle) and double sided and I was selling premades and taking commissions. Here is my deviant: http://shadesofrain....rt.com/gallery/

Good luck finding your artist!

No, the cats were colored digitally. But thanks so much for responding!

Maybe if I take a photo of the keychain and post it here?

Sadly, I can't remember their placement in the alley, or if I got a business card from the girl or not (I do remember the person was a girl, but that doesn't mean she was the artist).
I can take a picture of the keychain with my camera and post it online. Would that help?

I wish I could say it would, but since we don't require a portfolio review before being an Artist in our Alley, we have nothing to compare it to. Sorry.

If you post a picture of the keychain, I might be able to help. I travel to a lot of alleys through the year, so I see a lot of these people multiple times a year.

I bought some from her too. I don't know if I kept her card anywhere, but I think it might be http://www.lilycli.com/
