This is it, everyone! Last chance to snag one of these sweet rewards while you still can! Any leftover items will only be available in person at conventions after tomorrow : ) I'm so beyond excited to be realizing my dream of showing at conventions, and to be sharing my Alice in Wonderland project at last, which has been years in the making! Follow this link to pitch in if you haven't already.
A huge heartfelt thanks to those who have gotten me to my funding goal! Your incredibly generous support has been far more than I could have expected on my first crowdfunding campaign <3

Hey everybody!
Now is your last chance to pick up one of these backer rewards and pitch in to my WonderCon campaign, which has been successfully funded!! Any extra funds raised will go towards table fees at future conventions, and more printed items such as sketchbooks!

The campaign ends Saturday August 20th, so be sure to snag your reward here:

Thank you so much for the tremendous support!!

Hi everyone!

My Indiegogo campaign is already 61% funded! But I need your help in spreading the word to make it the rest of the way to WonderCon : )

I'll be giving away this page of 'shooting star' drawings from my sketchbook to a randomly selected winner who shares about my campaign on social media. Feel free to reblog or share any of my current posts, or create your own post with the hashtag #wonderconmia, so I can find your entry.
Be sure to share about my campaign before 10am PST tomorrow (7/14) to enter!

Hi everybody! It's been a while, as I've been working two day-jobs for the past couple of years in order to keep slowly creating the work I love by night. I'm finally down to just one day-job, and have decided to go for my dream of showing at conventions next year- starting with WonderCon 2017!

I've put together an Indiegogo campaign to help with the upstart costs of showing at conventions, and you can read all about my plan of putting on a show on my page : ) I've created some very special and unique rewards as a thank you for helping me realize one of my biggest dreams. Each reward is hand-touched by me, whether it's signed, hand-embellished, drawn, or painted.

The campaign is also the only place to get prints and postcards of my latest piece based on the Egyptian goddess, Isis (below)!

If you enjoy my work and would like to see me at a convention near you, please consider chipping in, and share my campaign with others! : )
Thanks so much for your support over the years! I hope you'll join me on my next step forward <3

'Isis' by mllemia
A little more info on my recent print release of 'Santa Muerte': it's a time-released print, which means there is only a limited amount of time to purchase before they are no longer available. The print comes as a standard edition or a hand-embellished edition, to which I will add patterns with iridescent gold paint. I also have a couple of sketches, and an original painting available. Have a look at this link, but hurry! The run ends in 3 days! : )


While cleaning out my studio recently, I came across some old drawings- in particular, one from 2011, for a ‘Watership Down’ themed group show, that still has my notes on it.

I'm running a giveaway in honor of all of you fans that have kept me going since then.

Simply like or leave a comment on the facebook post, on the instagram one (mllemia), or on my blog by February 1st 12pm PST- I will pick a winner at random and contact you via private message if you win : )

One entry per method, please! Each entry will count towards your chance (so you have a maximum of three chances to win).

Good luck, and thanks so much for your support!

Hi guys!
Please forgive my lack of updates- I've been up to quite a bit since my last post.
But most importantly, I'd like to share that 1xRun and I have released two print editions of 'Forest Healer.'

You can choose between a limited hand-embellished edition, or a standard edition, both are the same size, and only available for a few days here:
Standard Edition
Hand-Embellished Edition

1xRun prints sell out rather quickly, so be sure to follow those links if you want to get in on the action! There will also be a couple of originals available for purchase- just scroll down when you get to this link if you're interested.

I'm going to share some new works soon, so keep your eyes peeled ;)

Hi there,

I've had the amazing opportunity to be exhibiting at a convention for the first time. Being selected by the Muddy Colors Art Collective as a Rising Star finalist, I will be exhibiting alongside them at booth #612 at Spectrum Fantastic Art Live in Kansas City, May 17-19.
My original painting 'Secrets of the Deep' will be there in person, and you can pick up mini prints, postcards, and small originals at the booth. If you are attending, please stop by- I'd love to meet you!

Hope you are well and thank you for your continued support : )

Just wanted to send a collective thank you to all of you who've commented, favorited, and watched my profile since I began posting work here on my deviant page.
It really means a lot, and encourages me to keep drawing and painting when the going gets tough : )

I'm going to try to make two posts per day, until all of my recent work has been added.
From here on out, it will be mainly drawings and sketches.
So be sure to check back often!
