I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season so far. It’s been a roller coaster with Australia Post having record breaking amounts of deliveries to make and once again, the ongoing bush-fire crisis throughout Australia. I’m thinking that next year we may extend our shipment cut off times to as early as December 1st next year due to the growing popularity of buying things online and having them shipped before Christmas. We are set to resume shipping orders on the 6th of January onward, but I’ll be keeping an eye on the heat and bush-fire situation in regards to...

It’s time for another monthly update! This November has had many things have been disruptive to progress at Sans Vertigo.  Firstly, I have to address the elephant in the room: the Australian climate.

Another month, and it has been a doozy. I made a push to get a bunch of our work-in-progress stock available in store, and also update social media more regularly. Our Tumblr and Instagram are more photography and aesthetic in content, whereas Facebook and Twitter have more shop and progress related updates.  This month’s update blog is going to be a lengthy one. Let’s hop right into a summary of the major changes and progress on things this month in Sans Vertigo.  New Videos Another short “Shrimp on Substrate” reference video was made this month, this time our blue neocaridina...
