I Made a Sale | Nov. 15 - Dec. 6, 2012 | Thank you to all the kind people who support my work!



Hello all, hope you are doing well. Are you all getting excited and gearing up for Christmas? This is the first Christmas that I’ve had at home in 4 years, so I am very excited and looking forward to seeing my family and gorging myself on all the yummy food!

I haven’t had much of a chance to spend time on here lately, as I recently acquired two Rhodesian Ridgeback puppies that are beautiful and keeping me very busy! But now that I have the opportunity, I need to send a huge thank you to all the wonderful people who have been going crazy buying my work recently.

I am just so thrilled that people are still enjoying my stuff, and I hope, if you are buying for Xmas presents, that everyone will love their gifts! You having supported me is my own personal Christmas gift from you all,

Hello peoples! I know, I know, you never hear from me until I’ve sold something. I wish I had more interesting things to share with you all, but unfortunately no, I don’t!

How is everyone doing? It’s so nice to see everyone embracing the availability of the new iPad cases – I’m very excited to see how they will sell. And hopefully, I will have some time in the very near future to update my photos and designs to make them available as iPads. Anyone already sold an iPad case? Would love to hear from you!

Anyway, down to the real business, I have several thank yous to make. I’ve sold a fair bit in the last few days and I am so thrilled that people are still enjoying my work (and supporting me with their wallets!) Most of my sales have been from anonymous people, but I have to

Hello all, long time no speaky! I hope you are all doing well and feeling super creative. How did you all enjoy your Halloween (if that’s something you do!) ? Not a great deal of news here, except to say a big thank you to the people who recently bought a Miss Redhead poster, some greeting cards of Miss Redhead , Big Ben , The Blue City III , Four Part Harmony , and tshirts of The Power Walking Dead and Rainbow Brite ! I’m thrilled that people are still enjoying my stuff and your support is just so encouraging for me. It really spurs me to be creative and to continue honing my skills and learn new ones!

So thank you very much all. Take care of yourselves!

Thank you RB for featuring my work on Facebook!



Hello all, I just got such a nice surprise as I was casually browsing Facebook and found that RB had selected my Road of Discovery to be featured on their Facebook page as part of their Artful Architecture album!

What a thrill! I really like the photo, though it is very different from my usual type of work, and it was a lovely surprise to find that RB thought it was worth sharing. It’s always gratifying to know that people enjoy one’s work, so I want to say a big thank you to RB and to all of you who continuously support and encourage me – it really means a lot!

So that’s it for now – thanks again folks and I hope you all enjoy your week!

My Colour of Life series seems to be ‘Trending’


I got the very pleasant surprise when I was egotistically ‘googling myself’ – to find that my Colour of Life series of floral macro photos seems to have caught people’s attention. I think it started as an article written by Stacy Raindrops on Flower Petals , it was then picked up by Katie Hosmer from My Modern Met who wrote an article The Simplistic Beauty of a Flower Petal Waterdrop .

Since then I’ve found another two articles, one by Jordanna Tennebaum at Trend Hunter – Damienne Bingham’s Colour of Life is Up Close and one very thoughtful (and flattering) article by Susan Jones at Bangstyle – The Colour of Life – that I want to share because, well I’m just so chuffed!

Moroccan Rust in Plascon Paints Article



Moroccan Rust in Plascon Article



Hello all!

Today I decided to do a google search for my name, curious to see what popped up. It’s been a while since I last did this and I was surprised at the number of hits it brought back. Apart from the plethora of links back to RB, I found several blog articles about my work and an article by the paint company Plascon . It seems they do a blog article each month about a different colour and whoever wrote this month’s article, about the colour blue, decided to include my Moroccan Rust as an example.

I’m a little ambivalent about it – on the one hand I am excited to get a little extra attention from my work – particularly from an independant and large business. But I wonder if I should have been asked or received more attribution, including

Pinterest and Google+ – Your thoughts? Tips?


Not long ago I signed up for Pinterest and Google+ and I tell you, I am struggling a bit to figure it all out.


Pinterest seems to be relatively straight forward :



I did a little reading about the pros and cons of using it as a marketing tool. I feel it’s a good idea to have an account.
People are likely to be ‘pinning’ your work anyway, so you may as well know about it and proactively connect with those people and market your work.

What’s your thoughts? Are you for or against? And do you have any tips for me?

Anyone else out there already using Pinterest ? I would love to see your pages!


Now, onto Google+ :

Hello all,

I just got the coolest surprise: I noticed I recently sold a print of my Zest is the secret of all beauty. There is no beauty that is attractive without zest. and I’ve just found out that it was bought by an RB staff member to display at their Big Rebrand Party! That is really thrilling and quite an honour! I only wish that I could go! Unfortunately geographical issues mean that I’m not able to attend the party myself but I am looking forward to seeing the photos and hearing an account of it on the RB journal which I am sure they will write afterwards.

If any of you are planning on attending, I would love to hear about it from you and see any photos you take. And is there anyone else out there whose work has also been purchased for the party? I’d love to see it!

So n

Hello all!

Yes there is a new, super-dooper group on RedBubble and it’s called iPhone Home . It’s your one-stop shop for finding brilliant iPhone case designs and the coolest place to share the ones you make!

I hope you’ll all scoot on over and have a look – particularly when you find out we are running a super-quickie $20 voucher challenge before the end of the month! You’ve got 3 days to enter your favourite iPhone design and you could walk away the proud owner of a RB voucher!

This group is all about iPhone cases and promoting your work. So don’t forget to check us out on Facebook and Twitter

Let me know what you think, and of course, send in all your iPhone cases – we want to see them!

I Made a Sale | July 15 - 23, 2012 | Thank you to all the kind people who support my work!



Hello everyone, just a quick note to say thanks to whoever the kind people are who recently bought a couple of my prints of XVI and Colour Of Life XI and thank you also to the person who just bought another of my Decor IV iPhone cases!

and a HUGE thank you to the marvellous person who, yesterday, bought 50 cards from my Miss Redhead homage. That was really thrilling, I so appreciate your support and would love to know what you plan to do with them all!

I’m so happy people are still enjoying my work! Thank you all, to whoever you may be!

By the way, not only have I recently joined Twitter but I’ve also signed myself up at Pinterest ! Please give me a shout if you are on either or both sites – and let me know about your pages too so I can check them out! And of course, you can alwa

I'm All a-Twitter!


Howdy all,

Yes, I’ve finally gotten around to joining Twitter . Would you believe that today was the first time I had ever lain eyes on the website? I’m not sure how I managed to avoid it so long (obstinacy mostly!) but I’ve now succumbed. Integrating Facebook with my RedBubble work seems to have had a positive effect on my sales, so I’ve concluded that being involved with Twitter will surely do the same! (Fingers crossed!)

I’ve just finished customizing my background (check it out below) and I need some help from all you lovely people out there. Could you please visit my Twitter page and let me know if everything fits in place as it is meant to (see example image below). I know there are issues with different screen resolutions and so I would appreciate if you could let me know

Make An Impression Features: Random Beauty



Features – Random Beauty


Hello all, I know I am being very slack with this group – I was hoping to be able to cope better but unfortunately I’m just not getting the time I would like to spend on it. I hope you are all still watching and participating though, and so I have put together another little feature of some of the beautiful work we are getting submitted. In fact, I got a little overexcited and featured 14 instead of 12. My apologies to the 2 artists who didn’t make it to the front page of features but I so enjoyed your work, I really wanted to share it!

Congrats to everyone included and thank you for sharing your beautiful work with the group!

All the best to everyone and keep the work coming!

Cheers,
D.

Thank you so much for your support!

Big thank you to the lovely, anonymous people who, over the last few days, bought two of my Decor VII iPhone cases and one iPhone case of my Black and White Gazania. It was such a great surprise!

And again, thank you to whoever bought a tshirt, iPhone case and poster from my Miss Redhead series last week!

Make An Impression Features – The Blues


Howdy all…it’s been a while since we’ve seen some new features around these parts (terribly sorry I’m not keeping up with the group as much as I would like!). As I was moderating today, I was struck by a number of images with such beautiful, strong blues in them – so of course I decided to go find 12 exceptional blue images in the group and share them with you all. I hope you enjoy and big congrats to the talented artists who shared their work with us!

New Drawings and Sales


Hello all!

As some of you have already seen, I’ve recently uploaded some of my vector work to this account. These images have previously been residing in my other account but I thought maybe it was a waste having them on a smaller account that doesn’t get as much traffic, and this way I can get some more feedback on my drawing skill, which is something very much in the beginner stages for me.

I’m so happy to see that they’ve already gotten a fairly good reception – it’s gratifying to know that other people enjoy them (and that it’s not all in my head!). So thank you to everyone who has already commented, faved etc on the new drawings – thank you very much for your feedback, it is very much appreciated and very encouraging for me!

I also want to say a special thank you to Anthea Slad

Applied Imagination Features and Challenge Reminder


Greetings to all, hope everyone has had a lovely weekend! It’s time for some new features in the brilliant new group Applied Imagination and Ell has found some fantastic new tshirts to share with everyone. I’m hoping as this group grows and the word gets out, that we will be getting even more high-quality submissions of all sorts of products.

The group works on a ‘roster’ of products to feature, so this time it has been tshirts, next time it will be a different kind of product. If you have some great work you want to share and get some extra exposure for, send them our way! That’s what Applied Imagination is all about!

The best way to get your work featured is to label your work correctly . If you add “iPhone” or “Tshirt” (for example) into the title of your work it makes it easier

So now I send a big shout out to tjf50 who was kind enough to leave me a little message after purchasing my work. Thanks so much for your support and I am so happy to know you enjoyed this one because it is one of my own personal favourites!

Thank you for your support and I hope the iPhone case makes you as happy as you’ve made me!

RB & FB - A Match Made in Heaven for Applied Imagination


Applied Imagination is now on Facebook!

In our efforts to make this group the most recognized and effective tool for promoting your products on RedBubble, we have created an Applied Imagination artist page on Facebook.
This is a tool to help us expand our reach – to connect with other like-minded artists and potential clients/customers; a way to generate more sales of our work.

It is early days yet, this group is only new and the FB page is even newer – so I encourage you all to check out the page and if you have an account on FB, please ‘like’ us and recommend it to your friends. I believe this will really increase the traffic that this group, and in particular, your work gets.

Hello all, if you haven’t already heard – I’m co-hosting a fantastic new group called Applied Imagination , This group is all about promotion and making your work sell. We accept all types of art and products. That means we want to see your iPhone cases, Tshirts, Calendars and anything else of high quality that you think is worth buying. We will be doing a rotating roster of features – last time it was iPhones, this time Ell chose some excellent tshirts. There weren’t a lot of tshirt designs in the group to choose from but the ones she found are awesome and I’m looking forward to seeing more as this group grows!

Congrats to Robin Brown , wildraw and buttonpresser whose work is featured here – thanks for sharing your stuff with us! I recommend everyone going to check out their work

I’m feeling very overwhelmed with the sucess my iPhone cases have had recently. I’ve sold 4 cases in 10 days. I know it is only a minor success really but I am so thrilled that people are enjoying my work – particularly, as I said, because design is not my forte. But I am so enjoying learning and evolving my skills and style. So thanks for the encouragement from everyone – I always appreciate your thoughtful comments and now these few sales are just icing on the cake!

And thank you very much to the mystery people who have bought

I’m feeling very overwhelmed with the sucess my iPhone cases have had in the last few days – someone bought Aberration III last week, yesterday I saw someone had purchased Decor II and now, about an hour ago, someone bought my Aberration IV design – I am so thrilled that people are enjoying these – particularly, as I said, because design is not my forte. But I am so enjoying learning and evolving my skills and style. So thanks for the encouragement from everyone – I always appreciate your thoughtful comments and now these few sales are just icing on the cake!

Thank you to you mysterious purchasers, whoever you are – I hope you enjoy the cases and I want you to know your purchases haven’t gone unnoticed and your enjoyment of my stuff is really encouraging for me!

Thanks so much to the mystery people who bought some iPhone cases from me recently. Last week it was Aberration III and today I logged on to find that my Decor II design sold as another iPhone case! I’m so happy to know that people like my designs, as I have to admit I am pretty new at this design stuff!

So thank you to whoever you are – I hope you enjoy the cases and I want you to know your purchases haven’t gone unnoticed and your enjoyment of my stuff is really encouraging for me!

RB Homepage Features!



Big thank you to Mieke for curating the RB homepage features yesterday. I logged on tonight to find that my White V had been featured – which is always very exciting. So in the interests of continuing my shameless self-promotion – behold a few of my images that have had the honour of gracing the RB Homepage.

Thank you again to the people who made that happen and to all of you lovely people who continue to support and inspire me everyday!

And congratulations to my fellow artists with whom I shared the limelight – it’s an honour!
