The February sun has started swinging around into the house, triggering my early spring habit of going around observing shadows cast through glass. I find the light beautiful and so evocative I go around the place performing strange yoga poses in my efforts to capture them without getting the shadow of my camera in the way. This is a shadow of my favourite drinking glass I use for apple cider vinegar drinks (yum on ice!)
This whole week, however, was spent on beginning to set up a Redbubble shop with my Binky McKee Instagram illustrations. I have been asked several times recently if there is somewhere people could buy prints or cards or just anything with my work on it that I thought it was about time. I settled on Redbubble after about 10 days of researching licensing my work, other print on demand services, rates of exchange, currency, etc. I love Redbubble’s vibe and products, and they have a UK print shop which means dimensions and colour conversions should be less of a headache.
I am very excited about the venture, and the entire week has been spent cleaning up artworks, resizing and redesigning to suit the different products. I love the work, it completely satisfies the graphic designer in me, and it feels very positive.
I have quite a way to go until I can officially announce the ‘grand opening’ - I reckon it will take about a month until I have my ‘best nine’ and personal favourites completed to suit all products. Once I have done that, I am considering doing the same for my more zentangly drawings.
Thanks for visiting, see you next week!
Welcome to my blog, where I share what I have been doing during the week.
I have at last copied my nom-de-plume Binky McKee blog entries from here to their own blog, having given the illustration website an overhaul. Peace and tranquillity may resume here in the somewhat quieter nature of Heather Eliza's work, while Binky has her own rather more colourful Weekly. Please visit Binky McKee if you would like to visit!
