New mobile website

Hello lovely people of RedBubble!

I’ve recently launched a mobile version of my portfolio website and would love some feedback from fellow bubblers! Anything you like/dislike or find easy/difficult to use would be great to know.

If you’re on a mobile you can view it simply by going to www.petegrev.co.uk and you’ll automatically see the mobile version. If you’re not on a mobile I’d also love any feedback on the desktop website as well.

Thanks!

Find me on Facebook and win postcards!

In order to promote my work a little more I’ve decided to set up a Facebook page and a Twitter page.

To give you a little incentive as well, I’m giving away 10 postcards of your choice from my portfolio. All you have to do is like the Facebook page linked above, then like this image. I’ll then pick one winner at random.

I’d love to hear who has taken part, so make sure you let me know in the comments below!

One completed project

I’m not ovely good in expressing myself with words, which is probably why I love my camera and designing things instead. That said, I thought I should probably write a journal entry on the completion of my ‘A Photo A Day’ project.

It’s hard to believe that a whole year has passed, a leap year as well. I have managed to take at least one photo every single day, which when I first set out, wasn’t sure I’d be able to do. The past year has been life changing and has made me realise just how much I love photography, and life itself. Not only have I seen the beauty in the everyday world, but also how short a year of our life really is.

Even though my project has now finished and I no longer have to take a photo everyday, I have left my camera in the same spot…

Spotlight Feature!

I was so pleased and excited about this, I thought I had to post a journal entry to share it with everyone!

The other day I was lucky enough to not only be invited to join the 100% group, but to be selected as the Member Spotlight for September/October as well! I still can’t believe it!

I just want to say a huge thank you to Cassandra for her extremely kind words and to the 100% group for picking me!

If you’d like have a look at the feature for yourself, you can see it here.

'A Photo A Day' Project

As an incentive to use my camera more, I’ve decided to take a photo a day for as long as I possibly can.

This album will be a result of what I shoot… which should hopefully end up being a mixture of anything and everything. I will also try to write a small description about the photo for record, almost like a diary.

The majority of photos will simply be of everyday things, with minimal editing such as contrast and colour adjustments. I want a true representation of exactly what I’m coming into contact with everyday. I will however, on some photos, try out new techniques and editing effects… this is an opportunity to broaden not just my photography skills, but my editing ones as well.

I thought this would be a great way to document my day to day life and look back on the patter…

My very first photo sale... and it's a framed print!

Today I opened up my email and came across one from RedBubble. At first I was just about to shove it into my RedBubble folder, and then realised it was the most recent email… After opening it I exploded with excitement at the fact that it was a sale for one of my photographs! something I have never sold before! Best of all someone had spent £61 on a framed version of it!

So I just want to say to whoever you are, thank you thank you thank you! This means so very much to me. You have also given me that extra inspiration to upload some new photos I took the other day :)

If you like my t-shirts, please watch my other account!

Hey all!

I am attempting to venture more into t-shirt design, and with the upcoming launch of my t-shirt website (exciting!) I have decided to now add any future t-shirt designs to a new account.

If you like my designs could you please watch alwayslovedcc and let others know about it too!

Thank’s for reading and thank you even more for you’re continued support, you’re awesome!

Sale numero three!

Hey all!

I just wanted to post a quick journal entry to say thank you to whoever bought a tshirt of ‘Christmas isn’t fun for everyone’.

Chances are i’ll never find out who you are to thank you personally, but if you did buy it and you read this, please please please let me know!

Thanks again for putting a massive smile on my face! :)

My second sale... extra extra special, please read!

I logged into RedBubble this morning (Boxing Day 2009) to find I had sold one of my tshirts, Something’s Afoot

Firstly I want to start by saying thank you so very, very much to whoever bought it! Chances are I will never find out who you are, but if by any chance the person in question reads this, I would love to hear from you!

This sale is extra special to me for several reasons. Obviously I treasure every single sale and they are all as special as one another, but this one really made me smile! For one it’s only my second ever sale, but also because it’s been on RedBubble for just over 1 day! I added the design on Christmas Eve and although I was very pleased with how the finished design looked, once added to RedBubble I thought it seemed a little small (and that no on…
