So, you may or may not know, I’ve made some of my designs available at Zazzle
I wanted to have my designs available or kids and they offer quite a good selection of products. Here’s what you can find if you pop into my store.
They have some other pretty cool products but they aren’t available for me to add them to my store. Things like nightlights and pacifiers. Should you like to order something like that get in touch I will make it happen.
I’ve done it before and I failed. And i’m doing it again, only this time i’m going to make it work! I’ve got an etsy shop! My biggest problem with Etsy was supplying the product and shipping. This maybe naive but I had no idea you could ahve this done by a third party. So I’m giving it a go. We’ll see what happens.
So far, a couple days running and I’ve already got my first sale! This is encouraging. There’s not much there but there will be. I’ve had such a great response to my new monsters that I thought ‘these little guys might do well on children’s clothes.’ Truth be told I just really wanted my kids to wear some of my designs since they are the inspiration. People seemed to really like them so I thought it would be a shame not to share.
Here’s to big things in the future and my first sale!
Let’s keep them coming!
I am super excited to announce that I am now a published illustrator! My first book is out now. I did the illustrations…I didn’t write it. This is somewhat of a dream come true. Fours years ago when I went back to school…I had the idea that I wanted to illustrate books…children’s books. Not long after graduating I was lucky enough to have to have the opportunity to work with the lovely people over at Chouette Publishing. I did two books for them the first of which is out now. It’s a search and find board book for kids.
Check it out!
Continuing my exploration of Adobe Illustrator. A little something out of the norm for me, had a lot of fun working on this one.
Some whacky friends for a whacky friday!
A quick one before getting to work…
Feels like I haven’t posted in ages! Probably because I haven’t. I finally decided I need a little me time this evening. I’ve been so busy with work and contracts, not to mention fabricating a new human life. I really shouldn’t have taken the time off this evening, but I was feeling creatively drained and how I get over that is by doing some personal work. So tonight I thought I’d play around with sketchbook pro’s radial symmetry tool and come up with some mandalas. It’s actually quite relaxing making these. Anyways, I hope my next post won’t be to far down the road, but for now have a gander at these.
Oh and if you like ’em…I will have them up on my Etsy page as colouring pages. Should you decide to purchase the pages I would really enjoy seeing the coloured results so don’t forget to take a pic and send it to me.
This is in keeping with yesterdays sketches as well as working out some new characters…possibly for a future project.
Here are a couple other illustrations I did today while taking breaks from real work. And by real work I mean illustrations I’m being paid for. Still having a hard time wrapping my brain around the fact that I will be getting paid for what I love doing. Whodathunkit!
This little guy really enjoys purple jelly
