Shop

I have an ETSY shop now!  I try to put original art, handpainted resin jewelry, and my creepy (but loveable) monster puppies.

Print and merchandise of the collaborative prints I did with my daughter are available on Society6.

A sweet array of the collaborations are available on a variety of things at RedBubble, including kid’s clothes, and Ipad covers.  We ordered a shirt and sticker for the kiddo, and they look AWESOME if I don’t mind saying so… 😉

Mockingbird Ink is a way older t-shirt site I made through CafePress.  There are lots of strange shirt designs on there.  Most popular?  The dead armadillo.  Don’t ask me why…

  1. Hello!

    My name is Whitley O’Connor and I recently started a street paper in Oklahoma City that employs and empowers our homeless population. I stumbled across your art that you do with your daughter on BuzzFeed and absolutely love it! I was wondering if you might be interested in donating a piece to our silent auction this fall? I really think one of your pieces would fit in well with the items we will be offering and help us further empower our homeless vendors!

    Our magazine, The Curbside Chronicle, is a general interest magazine that is half local interest (restaurant reviews, new businesses, interviews with community leaders, etc…) and half social justice (studies on mental health, articles written by homeless writers, etc…). After printing, we give each vendor 15 free magazines to sell for $2 (plus tips) each. After their first 15 they purchase the magazines for $0.75 each and keep the profit made from sales. This allows us to continue printing magazines (it costs $1.03/issue to print at current volume) and allows our vendors to invest in their wellbeing. If you’re interested in learning more you can check out our Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/CurbsideOKC

    We would also like to interview you and your daughter for a future article if you’re interested. Again, I love the collaborations and would be so happy to be able to share them with our community through the magazine.

  2. Hi Mica,

    I saw an article about you and your daughter’s collaborations and was really struck by how beautiful they came out. My mother is an illustrator as well and when I was little, I’d add my spin to some of her sketches as I looked through the little sketchpad that she kept in her pocketbook. Although I am 23 now and no longer doodle on her designs, art is still a big part of our relationship. It lightens my heart to see another mother and daughter share that.

    Children’s art has always been one of my mother’s favorite genres (she likes how free and expressive it is) and I almost dropped my laptop when I saw the “Pink Mermaid” because mermaids are one of her favorite subjects to draw. Yours has such intrigue and the styles complement each other beautifully.

    I am looking forward to giving it to her and just wanted to write you a note to tell you how much I got out of your collaborations.

    All the best,

    Emily

    1. How wonderful! I’m so glad you have that with your mother! I hope she gets to enjoy the mermaid. Thank you so much!

  3. Would it be possible to commission a custom “collaboration” piece for you and your daughter to complete? I would love to have you two to create one of your odd portraits for my wife and I. This is such a wonderful story. A true inspiration for how I wish to see parents raise children in this day and age. I can’t think of a better way to encourage such a divine thing! Let me know what your terms might be. Shipping would be to Austin, TX.

    Thanks!

    Jason

    1. Thank you so much, I’m glad you enjoy them! Right now, we’ve decided not to put the pressure of custom work on her, but the prints are still on sale at Society6.com/micaangela. Thank you so much!

  4. hi, i also love your work. i bought 2 prints on society6 and had to file a claim against them with paypal. after waiting for about a month after the order, i hadn’t received it. after 3 emails to society6, i got no answer. of course i’m not blaming you, but, i was really excited to have purchased one for me and another for my sister and it is truly disappointing to not have received them. anyway, again, very interesting work. thanks, jennifer gross

    1. Oh my gosh! I’m so sorry you had that problem! They’re a 3rd party source so I don’t have any inside contact with them but I’m very sorry that happened. I hope paypal helps you–I haven’t heard many bad claims so far, but I’ve been trying out another company, mainly because they have more products. I appreciate you letting me know.

  5. Hello!
    I absolutely love your work in collaboration with your daughter!
    I would love to have a personal portrait made, Is there any chance that you guys would be interested in doing that?

    I could send you some pictures for you to store and use whenever the inspiration strikes, if ever.

    Is that something you’re interested in doing at this time?

    Thanks.

    1. Thank you so much for asking! I think we’ve decided, for our daughter’s sake, not to put the pressure of custom work on her. Several people have asked, and while I really would love to, I would hate for it to become like a job for her. I hope you understand. We’ll still have the prints available on Society6.com/micaangela, and on RedBubble (http://www.redbubble.com/people/busymockingbird). I’m so grateful that you appreciate the project we’ve done. Thank you again!

  6. Would you consider a calendar? I would love to purchase one! Gorgeous work.

    1. Thank you! That would be cool. Right now, none of the places I order prints through offer calendars, but it may be something I could look into on my own. Thanks!

    2. Oooh, actually I JUST FOUND OUT that RedBubble offers calendars. I may have to give it a shot! Keep an eye on the Facebook & Twitter pages for more info!

      1. Yay! If you do make a calendar by new years, I am definitely buying one. Yours and your daughter’s work is breathtaking:)

  7. I am a school teacher and would LOVE a set of your alphabet animals for our classroom wall. Is there a possibility of a discount for buying all 26 pieces?

    1. Thank you so much! I wish there were a way–unfortunately, the prints are sold through a third-party company, so I don’t have that sort of firsthand control over them. (This allows me to not have to pay much up front, and they handle all the printing & billing). I did do one layout of all the animals combined. It has been suggested that I might want to put the letters behind each animal, too. I’ll see what I can do!

  8. I love the collaborations you are doing with your daughter. Do you sell the original pieces (not prints)?

    1. No, sorry–we have decided to keep the originals for her, when she’s older. But thank you!

  9. I came upon your work when a friend shared it on Facebook. Was just browsing my news feed, so clicked on it to see what it was about. I was completely engrossed for the next 1-1/2 hours. I absolutely love the collaborations you and your daughter have done. They are beautiful, whimsical, original, and so expressive. Please tell your daughter how very impressed I am with her artwork, and how lovely for the two of you to share this special creative relationship. Now just to decide which print I want to purchase (first). Thank you for the beauty and magic you add to the world.

    1. Thank you so much, I’m so glad you enjoyed it all!

  10. It’s such a shame you don’t sell originals, but I understand why (and it’s probably best for my bank account that you don’t as well!). These works are quite incredible; very glad to have found them. Thank you. I am about to buy all of the t-shirts!

  11. These are so cool! You know what would be awesome is if you sold coloring books for other kids – with just the faces for them to start with.

    1. I think so too! I started some ideas for an activity book–if I don’t get any publisher bites, I might just make some myself… 🙂

  12. Hi,

    I just read your most recent post, a chronicle of you and your daughter’s artistic ventures….and….it made me cry! Thank you so incredibly much for sharing your experiences and insight. It’s mega inspirational.

    Much love from a 22 year old in St. Louis,

    Kyle

    1. Wow–I’m so glad you saw the same wonder in it that I did. I appreciate you writing–thankyou!

  13. I just stumbled upon your collaboration story on Facebook and I am in love. I’m currently expecting my first child and I cannot wait to decorate the nursery with some of your prints! I hope to one day be able to share such amazing experiences with my own little one–thanks for inspiring!

    1. Wonderful! It will be all about the baby at first, but in time, there will be more and more things you can do together. Best wishes to you!

  14. I absolutely love the collaborations with your daughter and just ordered my first print. While it was hard to pick just one (for now) I will be ordering more not only for myself but for friends and family as well for the upcoming holiday season to give as gifts. All the best to you both.

    1. Wonderful! I’m so glad you like them, and I’m honored I can be your gifts this year! 🙂

  15. LOVE love, love this collaborative art and the opportunity and experiences you are offering your daughter!!!

    Do you sell any of your work larger than 8×10?

    1. Thank you so much–Yes on both sites there are a variety of size options!

  16. Hi just wanted to let you know I love your work. Tried to order an art print through society6 and after waiting 6 weeks with no art work showing up, I had to file a claim to get a refund. So sad I couldn’t get one of your prints 😦

    First off let me say how in love I am with you and your daughters work. Something about it is hauntingly whimsical. Your drawings of faces is so detailed and very precise I was wondering if I sent you a head shot your daughter and yourself would be able to create something special for me? I’m leaving the us and moving to Ireland so I want something to tie in my Cali lifestyle but also the way your daughter creates fantasy and makes it look real would be the perfect twist and memory for me to have. Please feel free to contact me as id love to purchase something.

  18. I am a professional musician. I have a great love for the visual arts as well as literature. I’m starting my life over with my 12 year old son after a divorce. We have a miraculous relationship. Our apartment is bare still a year after being on our own except in his room where his posters hang. Mainly because I’ve not found anything that moved me enough to put there. I don’t believe in decorating your walls unless you can put something up that makes you feel everytime you look at it. Madam, your art is the first thing I’ve seen in a very long time that jolts me with excitement. Your independent work is very moving to me but the work with your daughter is not only wonderfully meaningful, tremendously entertaining and cosmically imaginative, it is something that has captured me visually in a way nothing has since I was child. I thank God for your gift and your relationship with that girl of yours. I hope to hang your work on my empty walls someday. With Appreciation for what you guys do, Bad Brad Guin.
