I have a ton of ideas for this segment since there are so many fantastic ladies in the blogging biz! It’s just my little shout out to the creative gals who have been and continue to be a huge inspiration to me. Today I wanted to rave about two super creative ladies, Kayly of My Open Sketchbook and Liana of Liana Kangas<3

Kayly’s blog was one of the first that I came across when I joined the Female Geek Bloggers Google+ group, and I knew right away that she was someone I’d get along with. She’s such a down-to-earth lady, and I always have fun reading about her life! Not only is she an awesome homeschooling mama to her sweet daughter, she’s also super geeky and an incredibly talented artist.

I had the good fortune of winning her badass Beetlejuice fanart back in November, and he’s still one of my favorite pieces to show off to my friends! I’m not going to pretend to know anything about art, but I mean, he looks pretty dang perfect to me. She’s currently preparing to open up her own art shop, which I’m crazy stoked about! In the meantime, head on over to her blog to enter her fanart giveaway, because duh, you can never have too much great fanart.

Liana is someone I very recently fell in love with. She started blogging again last week and I seriously can’t wait to read more from her! I came across her through the Geek Girls x Bloggers Facebook group and I’m so glad to have found her because seriously, look at this Steve Zissou print!

It’s like a dream come true, haha. My husband isn’t usually on board with letting me indulge in my fandoms, but he was immediately into buying this print (although he really wouldn’t have had much of a choice)! Take a look at her shop because I promise you, there’s something there for every geeky gal or guy;)

If you love gorgeous fan art and general geekery, be sure to check these ladies out and show them some love! And if you want to check out even more super cool bloggers, head on over to my last Badass Lady Bloggers post where I basically confess my total adoration for Pepi and Rav.

On another art-related note, the World of Warcraft: Chronicle Volume 1 art book that I pre-ordered last month is shipping today! I’ve been excited for this ever since my husband texted me about it and I can’t wait to share it with you all once I get my hands on it! How about you WoW fans, are any of you buying this art book too?

    When I saw that Zissou print I thought of you – 2 fantastic bloggers!

    • Haha, that’s awesome to hear! He’s one of my very favorite fictional people, so I pretty much bought that print a split second after I saw it on Etsy:P

  3. Thank you so much for the feature Ashlee! You are amazing! I’m so happy you like Beetlejuice. <3 I so love Liana's work…I have a Starlord print from her and it's so fantastic. Also, I can't wait to see the WoW art book!! Thanks again, this made my day!

    • You’re welcome, miss Kay! I’ve been meaning to talk about how much I love that Beetlejuice art ever since I got it, basically:P Plus, you’re awesome and I just wanted to give you a little shout-out😁 And oh my gosh, I’m sure that Starlord print is amazing!

  4. Kayly’s blog is great, and how she draws! OMG! I love her drawings! I follow her on Instagram as well 🙂 Yay! And thanks for introducing the new blog to explore 😉 Awesome ladies!!!
