My name is Melquea Smith and I am a furry and fantasy illustrator. If you haven’t seen in my digital and traditional portfolio, I specialize in adorable animal characters with sweet stories designed to uplift and make you smile.
Here is my list of products for retail at artist alleys, tradeshows, dealer's dens, and events.
I love creating and designing environments for my guests to explore. I want to be set apart from the rest. Therefore my display is unconventional, whimsical, and builds the PrettyKitty brand.
More positive affirmation quotes tied into their respective paintings. Every piece has a different moral with a different cozy feeling attached to it. These prints are small, personal ways to have that extra boost of positivity in one’s life.
I wanted a portable way to display my work as well as a constant reminder of something good. Buttons are extremely fun to create, but the vinyl stickers has a more hands-on approach.
These are single, die-cut vinyl stickers, and every character has a personality on their own that resonates with their buyers.
These babies are going to need their forever home, so I will be also using the paintings as a way to draw attention as well as find them to a wall or room where they will be loved.
Plans for the Future
Every event and every year brings a new focus and perspective on how I can alter, grow, and scale my work. I’m ready to do the next best thing. I have a love for practical items and things I would use. Wearables like earrings, and necklaces, and practical items like and notebooks and tote bags are on my radar. The audience at my most recent show, RetroGameCon 6 took well to my vinyl stickers, so 6 additional designs will be created and added into the queue.
Thank you for your time, and I can’t wait to be a part of your event.
