Over 400,000 Views Of My Gallery Since January 2008

About 2 weeks ago I finally crossed the 400,000 view Milestone that I had been watching slowly approaching. It was a nice feeling!

The Screen Shot of the Total Views

I read about the Red Bubble Art & Design web site in a Graphic Design magazine about half a year before I finally got around to visiting this site and deciding to become a Member. I was keen to see whether it was possible for me to sell any work here and to get some feedback on my work from people who I’d never met before.

In those first couple of hours it felt amazing to receive feedback from people in other parts of Australia and other Countries. It was also incredible to be able to view the work of Amateurs and Professionals from all over the place – to see what images they were creating, to try and discern how they were making them and to challenge myself to improve the quality of my own work in response to what I had seen.

This web site has enabled me to re-assess everything that I do when I’m making images, right from the first idea or inspiration through to how I process/treat images and arrive at a finished image. I’ve learned so much about image creation from this web site, mainly by just examining the images I view, not so much by doing any Tutorials – I don’t like doing them (tedious). I’ve allowed every image/written work I’ve seen here to influence me and to change my viewpoints and attitudes, but I go through a process where I take note of a style or technique and then try to forget about it almost entirely – letting those influences come out in my own work later on, with my own mix of influences all stirred together.

About 2 weeks ago I finally crossed the 400,000 view Milestone that I had been watching slowly approaching. It was a nice feeling!

I’ve also met countless Artists online at Red Bubble (from all over the world), and had many interactions with them that just blew my mind – totally unexpected stuff that’s been so much fun and so rewarding!

Thanks to everyone who has commented on my work, replied and also sent me e-mail via Red Bubble. It’s been amazing and I’ve really appreciated all of it.

Cheers,

James :-))
