The Arcade, Norns Studio, new location, land news!

TinyDragon-Promo1Wilds of Organica will be participating in the March run at The Arcade!

For those not familiar with the event, The Arcade is a great opportunity to pick up completely new and original pieces of work from many of SL’s top content creators!

It’s a giant gachapon (random prize machine) festival that’s running March 1 thru 31st, and it features a boatload of great merchants, whom I’m humbled to be participating with. Participants offer a set number of items ranging from fashion to home decor and beyond for low prices and limited availability.

Wilds of Organica has created a special tiny dragon avatar for the occasion and more details will be unveiled closer to the event, so keep your eyes open for further news!

New to Organica Sim:

Norns

I’m very pleased to welcome Norns Studio to the Organica Commercial District.

As per Norns Studio’s press release:

February 15, 2013 – [ norns studio ], the first fine art gallery located at Organica, has its grand opening on Friday, February 22, 2013 with a reception from 7 – 10 pm SLT.

The opening exhibit will highlight the work of artist, Kelly Judd. Kelly Louise Judd received a BFA from Kansas City Art Institute in 2002. She continues to live and work in Kansas City. Victorian Illustration, fairy tales, abnormal psychology, and Northern Renaissance art are just a few of the things she is inspired by. Celebrate these limited edition prints as a suitable gift for the loved one in your life or to enhance your personal environment.

“I know amazing artists and, over the years, many of them have asked me to help them promote their work.
It has always been my dream to open an art gallery, and when I found this great space, I knew the time was right,” says Amas Veritas, owner of the gallery. “The goal is to place our artists’ work in a wide range of public and private collections.”

The [ norns studio ] is the newest addition to Organica sim, owned by Aki Shichiroji, The dynamic, tri level open gallery exhibits emerging, mid-career and established artists creating contemporary works on paper, paintings, fine art photography and assemblage.

These artists are all known personally and professionally by Amas. These limited edition prints are only available at [norns studio]. The gallery plans to hold future shows featuring an international group of work with established names, as well as emerging artists.

Organica News:

Finally, I’m pleased to announce that Organica has joined the excellent merchants located at The Nest Home & Garden Shopping Town. I look forward to bringing a selection of my work to this neat space and invite you all to visit the new location as well as explore the rest of the town!

Along with this new location,  the main store, which includes landscaping and home decor items, will now be known as Organica Specialty Landscaping & Home Decor. The transition will be gradual and overall the change should be minimal to those who are already familiar with the brand, however I’ve been wanting to redefine and clarify my personal goals for Organica for quite some time, and hopefully this change will make it easier for folks to find things I make which were perhaps not so easy to find previously. Ideally, trees, plants and other landscaping items will continue to be produced, however I’d also like to dedicate some more space and time decor and building items in the near future.

Land

Six parcels of land are now available in Sylvan region for residential use, ranging from 960-1680sqm at a 1.75x prim bonus, L$1.8/prim/week. Beautiful alpine-themed environment, your ideal next home!  Drop by the Sylvan Land Office for more details!

A bit of housekeeping; this item was released during March Mesh Madness but never made it as a post to this blog, so I’m rectifying that now. This frame set features three detailed Japanese maple leaves, carefully mounted for presentation. They’re excellent accent pieces to almost any interior and are great as gifts. They are mesh, so they do require a mesh compatible viewer. Available at Home and Garden Expo as well as in-store. They are mod/copy/no transfer, however they can be gifted in-store; just click the vendor prior to purchase for gifting options.

March SUYS stuff + new tree + land availability

March SUYS stuff + new tree + land availability

March’s theme for Spruce Up Your Space is “Spread Your Wings”, so I decided to play on the overall potential SL holds and tie it with the sort of wonder children often have when they are developing an imagination. Sometimes it doesn’t take a lot to make something ordinary seem extraordinary and to help an imagine take flight.

This item  comes with a playhouse, wooden wings, tiny chair and animations.  The chair holds four animations – two each for child and adults (sit and drive). You can also sit on the roof, where you’ll find two animations.

All pieces are mod/copy, although animations, scripts and associated notecards are copy only.

This is a mesh product, so you’ll need a mesh capable viewer to view/use.  Available in-store for only $150L this weekend as part of March’s Spruce Up Your Space! Will be updated on Marketplace after promotion is over.

March SUYS stuff + new tree + land availability

It hasn’t been too long since I last put out a Ficus, but what can I say? I’ve always loved Ficus trees and it’s almost mesmerizing to work out how their banyan roots can form complex knots in their bark.

This item comes out to 13 LI at packaged size and is optimized for resizing. It’s available mod/transfer and mod/copy and is mesh only, so you’ll need a mesh-capable viewer. ( Buy in Store )( Buy on Marketplace )

Land stuff:

Sylvan is a quiet, beautifully landscaped residential region offering a variety of parcel sizes with healthy prim allocation (1.75x prim bonus). We welcome mesh and breedables (please see covenant for terms) and also have a small sandbox available should you require additional space to work out builds, etc. Purchase price is a reserve fee set to cover one day of rent, which will be credited back to your tier meter once a minimum initial payment of 4 weeks rent is paid (all payment made after that can be as often as weekly).

Blog change & new releases

Organica has been around for quite a while – since October of 2007 in fact! But did you know Organica Specialty Trees is affiliated with an accessory shop as well?

In fact, Kitheres Industries was my first project! Some time last year I decided to consolidate the shop and move it to a single spot located at Fort Stygian in The Wastelands. For a number of different reasons, however, it had to be put on the backburner and I haven’t really had the chance to add to the shop until recently. I’ve added a new product and I’ll talk about that in a sec.

I’ve decided not to keep two seperate blogs for updates and will be posting about both brands on this blog from now on. I will not be combining the subscriber groups, so if you are only subscribed to one brand, you will only recieve notifications for posts which contain relevant material. You are, of course, welcome to sign up for notifications for both.

The blog has been renamed ‘Kitheres and Organica’, which more accurately reflects my branding on Marketplace, however in-world both brands will operate as usual. Over the next few weeks, I will be sorting out proper categories for existing Organica posts and recently imported Kitheres posts, so hopefully things will remain organized and accessible to all.

With that said, let’s get to the new releases!

Kitheres:

Blog change & new releases

Spatterdashery Boots are named such because they include a belt-bound spat along the length of the lower leg, covering the ankle region and reaching upwards, providing added material for the wearer.  These grungey boots are great for everyday wear and especially optimized for use in crowds due to their relatively low draw weight compared to comparable sculpt products. Available in three colours, these boots are 100% mesh modelled and textured from scratch. Left unrigged for easy resizing, the boots are mod/copy and contain removable resizer scripts – so you can use the script to resize the boots for you if you’re not confident with building things (then remove the script once you’re done) or you can remove the script entirely and just resize the boots as needed using build tools. ( Buy in store ) ( Buy on Marketplace: DemoCharcoalHazelOliveFatpack )

Organica:

Blog change & new releases

Organica has joined Spruce Up Your Space and will be a participating merchant this weekend!

Blog change & new releases

This Elm tree is wonderfully lush and detailed – it’s a great item to help create shade and atmosphere to a mature looking landscape! Full mesh, includes three foliage colours both scripted and unscripted. As this is a mesh product, you’ll need a mesh viewer to view.

This item will be available mod/copy on sale for L$150 for this weekend only! This introductory price will go away after Sunday, when I’ll add back a mod/transfer edition, so be sure to pick this one up before the sale ends! (Please note: sale is in-store only! This product will be added to the Marketplace next week 🙂 )

Other non-sale releases:

As mesh items with no transparencies, they don’t conflict with water surface rendering or other plants which use transparency, so they work really well as highlight pieces right next to the existing Cattail 1 set!
