So while I work out how being an artist is going to sustain me and supplement my other freelance work I’ve put up some designs at Red Bubble and Society 6. I’m very grateful and delighted to be making a few sales already and it’s great fun to my designs on products. And of course, I’ve purchased a few myself to check out the quality. Only a tiny cut of the Red Bubble and Society 6 sale price comes to me so I’m planning on the future holding a proper store of my own with products I can manage the manufacture of and I’m keen to sell some designs outright. Until then, thanks so much for your support, I appreciate it very much!
5 January 2017 UPDATE – I purchased a beach towel from Society6 to check the quality. The towel arrived today and I have to say it’s pretty nice! It’s very big (74″ by 37″) and I guess you could also use it as a bath sheet. It’s soft polyester-microfibre with a velour finish on the print side and white cotton terry on the back. I’ve washed and dried in the sun today and it’s super soft and ready for the beach! The pattern is For the Love of Blue – Pattern 372. It’s from an original watercolour painting and I’m really happy with the the way the design and colours came out!
