Some important & exciting news to tell you tonight (namely a new division of my art business featuring PENNY AUCTIONS FOR STATUES!), an introduction for one of my new employees, and also some brand new #01 Canvas prints up for auction (Carnivorous Bouquet Fairy, Blood Orchid, Seashell Beauty, Mermaid with a Golden Dragon, Ghost of a Rose - all at one penny)!
Okay - the first big news. I have a new employee to introduce - his name is Chris - he's also my brother-in-law! Married to my sister Amber (and stay-at-home father of my nephew, baby Fox!) - Chris now works for me fulltime. He lives up by my secondary studio in Kansas City that we built last year as an art studio/shipping center whe we're up visiting family in the midwest. Anyway - he's a great guy and is taking on the responsibility of helping make more of my artwork & merchandise available for direct purchase. Firstly - he is going to be in charge a new endeavour of mine - "penny auctions" for my statues! You guys keep asking me, "Hey - you sell other things of yours at auctions starting at a penny - why not your statues?" Previously this reason has always been simple - Matt & I don't have the time or the room for such things, we are up to our necks in prints and paintings already. But now that Chris up in the Kansas location is working now - he is officially in charge of such things. My new statue penny auctions will be sold on eBay with Chris's eBay seller ID: magical_figurines - in fact - you might want to go add magical_figurines to your eBay favourite seller's list, or just bookmark this following link since many new things will be coming there:

As both my employee and a family member, Chris will be able to provide some very special things in the future that are hard to come by - statues with boxes that I have autographed personally, the occasional production samples or advance items, one of a kind painted pieces, prototypes, rare or discontinued items, fun stuff like that which are very difficult to find elsewhere (or impossible!). I'll keep you updated - but definitely bookmark that link above or add magical_figurines to your favourite sellers list through eBay. I'm of course happy to confirm everything sold there is 100% authentic and being sold directly by me & Chris (shipped from our midwest location). I'm also happy to announce that Chris will ship ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, making some things available for the first time in many countries (as long as you don't mind paying for Airmail shipping of course, hehe). Please note - items from Chris can't be shipped in the same package as things ordered from strangeling or strangeling.com because he lives in Kansas and I live in Florida, lol =)
Chris has already listed a couple of auctions - both starting at just ONE PENNY on eBay - some rare limited edition large statues of my "Lost...but Not Worried" and "Captive Fairy" - both of them new in the box, and in fact I have autographed the boxes myself! To see them both, just click below:
