BoldEgoist

We're Ickah and Sam, two Detroit-local artists who manage a shop together. Welcome to our carrd! Bounce around to find out a little but more about us, or check out our socials so you know where to follow!

Our North America shop is available for US, Canada, and Australia (when AUS shipping is available) and contains our full range of products. This shop has preorders and advance releases, plus lower prices on average.

Our Etsy shop has a limited range of products and higher pricing due to Etsy's policies and fee structure. If you're looking to wishlist items or have them shipped to the UK, this is the shop you want.

2021 Con Schedule

Sadly we're not able to sustain our business by staying at home through 2021. We're fully vaccinated and intend to be at cons this year for business, not for pleasure.
