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 copied blog entries created under my nom-de-plume Binky McKee to their own blog. It can be found on my illustration website, Binky McKee.
