Hey guys!

FanExpo Toronto, September 1st to 4th, is my final show for the year! If you'd like to come out and see me for a print, comic, commission or just a hello, please do!
Hey guys!

I'm currently scheduled to appear at the following shows, with more to come as the year goes on:

  • HeroesCon (June 17-19, 2016 @ Charlotte, North Carolina)

Come out and see me!
Hey guys-- this is another big year for conventions, so if you're in the area, I would love to see you!


As usual I'll be selling prints of my most popular artworks, and paper copies of "1001", everything for $10. :)
Hey guys! 

Come down to the Javits Center on October 8th to 11th for New York Comic Con! I'll be selling prints, comics and commissions over in the Artist's Alley. (Table V5)
Hey guys!

I'm wrapping up my maternity leave and heading back out onto the con circuit-- come check me out at the following shows:

Hey guys!

It's that time again-- I'm nearly at my 50 000th hit on DeviantArt! In that old fashioned kiriban spirit, if you screen cap my 50 000th hit and send it to me, you'll win a free color commission!

Since there was some confusion last time, whoever sends it to me FIRST will win the commission. You can email me at sanya@artbysanya.com .

Take care guys, and see you this May at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, or TCAF!

Hey guys!

Thanks SO much to everyone who came out to see me this year in San Jose, Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal and New York! This year was such a blast, and I've met so many amazing people! 

Now I'm looking forward to buckling down and losing myself in my work until late Spring next year, producing more illustrations and issues of 1001. Once I'm squared away with my 2014 cons, I'll post up here to let you guys know where I'll be.

Thanks again for making this a wonderful 2013!

Hey folks!

I'm here at my studio just outside of downtown Montreal, working away at issue 2 of 1001! With my story boards nearly complete, I'll be on to pencilling soon, which has got me excited. I'm pretty determined to make this issue look spectacular, so let's keep our fingers crossed that my right hand doesn't give out to cramps or strain before I meet that goal. :)

In the mean time, have you had a chance to read 1001, issue 1? It's TOTALLY FREE here at my website:

1001.artbysanya.com/

In PDF and CBR format for your viewing pleasure. :)

Toronto Wizard Con, March 25th-27th

Hey folks!

So I'll be hitting up Toronto Wizard Con again this year in Artist's Alley selling some brand new prints (I admit, I'm inking them right now) including some new Silk Road pieces for fans of that collection! Additionally, I'll be selling a teaser cover for my comic series 1001 that should be cool. :D

Anyone else hitting up Toronto Wizard Con? It's like a more chill version of Fan Expo, so I'm excited to go around and do some shopping-- my husband and I may or may not go in on a Katana. <3

Cleaning up the gallery

Hey folks!

So I decided to finally clean up my ancient DA account by deleting and moving around some old work. Lots of new stuff to come-- let's consider that my new year's resolution. Do you guys have any resolutions to share? :D

Subscription

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 21, 2010, 3:46 PM
Hey Folks!

So for reasons beyond my own understanding, I've decided to get a DevArt subscription (what with this 24 month deal)-- so check out my sweet journal skin! Also, I've been creating a lot of art and doing a pretty crappy job of actually uploading it, so I'll try to get on that ASAP. :D

Hey guys!

I'm home from fun and exhaustion at Toronto Fan Expo; check out my recap and some commissions at www.artbysanya.com/blog . XD I'm always pleasantly surprised by how many deviants come out to say hi to me at my booth-- how was your experience at the con? :D
Hey folks-- how goes the summer? Hopefully not as blistering hot for you as it is for me here in Montreal!

Just wanted to fill you guys in on some upcoming dates where I'll be out of the art cave and in the public, doing my thing. :)

July 24th (Montreal); I'll be doing live portraits at Just for Laughs Twins Parade; sure to be an interesting experience for everyone involved! ;)

August 27,28 and 29 (Toronto); I'll have a table in artist's alley at the 2010 FanExpo with a lot of new art, not to mention a new comic created by yours truly; "1001;" my re-imagination of the Arabian Nights. :)

I always LOVE meeting you guys and swapping stories, so come down and see me!


(BTW, anyone else addicted to Glee?)
Hey folks!

So over the last few months I've been putting the finishing touches on my formal website www.artbysanya.com where you can see some of the work I have posted here too, but more fun than that is my art blog at www.artbysanya.com/blog where I post up artworks and sketches that never make it to Deviantart. How cool is that?
