I am falling a bit behind on updating my blog, I am sure you could tell. I recently joined Instagram, as if I needed more distractions beyond Facebook. Social media affords me the luxury of saying it in bite size chunks while on the blog I feel I ought to explain/ express more. Result- no news in long time.
I have a very active 8 month old and a very demanding 3.5 yr old in my life. My girls bring me immense joy and they keep me very busy. My mobile phone is the only way I get to check my emails or update my social media pages. I think who ever came up with the idea of internet connectivity on mobile devices was brilliant! Today I am stealing a few moments from my sleep to let you in on some new developemnts in my life.
I have opened an online shop. On society6.
I have been thinking of opening a shop online to sell my illustrations as prints for a long time but marketing and networking seems so out of my comfort zone that I never got around to doing it. I am also awful at self-promotion which , in order to sell a lot, I wil have to do a lot of…. so here goes attempt 1.
Society6 is an online market-place where artists and illustrators can sell their work in form of art prints, t-shirts, mugs and other consumer goods. For me the biggest reason for choosing society6 was the assurance that the products use only the highest quality materials, and are shipped it to you on my behalf by them. That gives me the time to focus more on my work and my family, rather than keeping inventory and the logistics of printing and shipping.
As always, I welcome your feedback and comments.
