These came to me in a monthly art subscription called Sketchbox. The green Liquid Acrylic is new. The others arrived last month. I am not planning on using them in the future, so I thought someone else could.
What is included:
1) Shimmery Green - Liquid Acrylic: comes in ink bottle with eye dropper.
2) Calli - calligraphy black ink (slightly used)
3) Simply Simmons #4 paint brush (slightly used)
4) Krink - a black acrylic paint stick (slightly tested, so the tip isn't at a point)
I'm selling them for $10 plus shipping.
So welcome to Wisdom Novels® Patreon!
My main objective is to just finish the series. I have seven books in mind. The first six will comprise of two trilogies, while the seventh is a stand-alone. During the course of writing, I'll be continuously sketching, painting, sculpting and creating music. All of which you guys will get to see as I share spoilers and much, much more!
Hope you enjoy!
Brief Summary: Four companions break away from their strict society, taking families and friends with them to start their own way of life. It's in the middle of winter, and two of the companions have gone off to explore a cave to see if it'll provide shelter from the blizzard.
CHAPTER 2 - Opening Scene
There was no telling how far into the mountains the tunnel went. With a single lantern, all Thomas Gracie could see was a small amount of light passing over gray stone wall. He was careful where he stepped, as the cavern floor was uneven. Stalagmites littered where water had contorted the stone with mineral deposits over time. Some were fairly large spikes, which Thomas Gracie picked his way around. He dipped to his left, avoiding a low-hanging stalactite. Another nearly caught his shoulder.
Maybe it represents the sky? Unsure, he moved to the last mark. It was the easiest to recognize, being the shape of a leaf. Like all the rest, its green lighting faded until Thomas Gracie had to raise his own lantern again to see in front of him. Someone had to have made these, but for what purpose? What does a leaf, a cloud, fire and water have do with anything?
Thomas Gracie did not hear anything advancing after him. His steps, however, did not slow. He wanted to find Jenario and hoped he was on a connecting path. As he ran, the same four symbols lit his way, dimming when he approached and flaring up again when he had passed. The interest in them had vanished, replaced now by a rising fear that something may have happened to his friend.
“Jen—” His call was cut short when his foot tripped on a stalagmite. The lantern went flying, and so did he. All he could hear was shattering glass and the echoes of his own painful yelps when his arm scraped against jagged floor.
He lay still, waiting for the tunnel’s returning mimic to calm itself.
The story follows Jenario Onyx’s POV as they flee their corrupted city into a snowstorm. I’m really enjoying the frigid descriptions because I haven’t had a chance to do that yet. I hope I hit home by showing how cold it is and how well Jenario takes to freezing weather.
A big THANK YOU goes to Joel who operates the antique store, and is sparing floor space for me to set up. Thank you!
There may also be a special visitor coming. It's not confirmed yet, but I'm hoping to get the talented Stephen Planalp who voice-acted the audio book to make an appearance.

I’m still planning out how to decorate my table and what to bring, but here’s a list:
2) Models of fantasy figurines
3) Custom cut sign with original artwork (I will have to make this)
4) Artwork (I think I would like to actually do some artwork while I’m there, usually draws a crowd
5) Art Prints (these will be small, probably 4×6 glossy, photo prints or characters/creatures/cover art)
There may be others i might want instead. I’m debating whether the artwork should be traditional or digital if I do it live. I’ve been into digital lately. Traditional would be easier to see. I have a couple of pieces in mind I’d like to start, which would involve inking and watercolor on a large watercolor board. But I doubt I’d even get to that part if I started from scratch at the store. Stuff like that takes weeks to complete.
