I have finally got around to posting a journal entry here on RedBubble, you may already have seen my posts on my myspace page and also on the news page at my website. Been busy busy busy…
I am really excited about RedBubble – it’s a fantastic opportunity for Australian artists etc, with great exposure and support. One thing I would dearly love feedback on is how people are promoting themselves in order to sell their work – as a poor struggling artist (one of many!) I could really use the sideline income.
I have a few design projects underway at the moment, which has kept me away from my illustration work – but there I’m starting some new pieces soon – so keep an eye out. I’ve just completed a revised version of the OhOhChaos gig poster I did for a guy in Belgium – which I will post for sale, I love the typography…There will also be a small copy of my submission to Daydream magazine in the UK – with the theme Left or Right – I found a little pearler of a quote which I was inspired by. I’m hoping also to post some images of a CD design I am working on for a one-man-band in Scotland – it won’t be for sale obviously, but you’ll be able to buy the CD I’m sure.
I’m hoping to get really underway with my illustration – so I can hear from everyone about their thoughts and reactions! I’ll be putting together a little promo with them to send around the studios and magazines in an attempt to bring in some work.
Has been tough lately, which I’m sure many people can relate to, no food, no rent, blah blah blah – but its slowly starting to come together now. Fingers crossed!
I’d love to hear what everyone thinks of my work – I’ll be searching around checking out what I’ve missed since my last sojurn in the bubble. If you have an tip and hints on selling I’d love to hear it!
