31 Days of Sensational Shops - Metal Kirin Illustration

31 Days of Sensational Shops is a month long tour of geeky, fantasy and/or monster-filled shops in December. Please stick around to learn more about today's Sensational Shop!

Today's Sensational Shop is Metal Kirin Illustration - run by Teal Newcomb!

Tell us about you - the creator!

I'm Teal Newcomb, a 25 year old fantasy artist from Michigan. Aside from painting, I spend a lot of time outside in nature, or reading, knitting, or engaging in a different hobby. I have too many hobbies!

Describe your shop and what you sell

I sell prints and original art featuring my own fantasy artwork :) Eventually I'd like to branch out into more things, like T shirts and glass products.

What is your favorite item to make? Why?

ACEO paintings! They'e so tiny and cute, and relatively quick to make, even with my obsession for detail. It's an affordable way to offer customers originals, too.

How and when did you start your business?

I recently decided I needed to stop beating around the bush and commit to working towards being a part time and eventually full time artist. It's something I've wanted to do since I was little, and I have a hard time imagining myself as happy, doing anything else.

Where can buyers find you?

Thanks so much for popping by and meeting Teal Newcomb of Metal Kirin Illustration! See you tomorrow for another Sensational Shop!
