Are sales like buses?

No sales for ages and ages and then two come along! Only a short while after selling some greetings cards of the Bridge of Sighs, I have just heard of a sale of a card of “Grounded”! Thank you, whoever you are!

A sale!

I’ve been very quiet on Red Bubble of late, so I was delighted when I got an email to say that somebody had bought 4 greetings cards of “The Bridge of Sighs”. Whoever you are, thank you!

golden time sale :-)

I would like to say a big thank you to whoever bought a greeting card of “golden time”. Coincidentally, I was in Cambridge yesterday evening and actually saw the bicycle again, this time being ridden down the street :-)

Movement sale :-)

I wish I knew who to thank, but I just sold a greeting card of “Movement” :-) It’s the first sale I’ve had since shortly after I joined.

Whoever you are, thank you for taking an interest in my work!

My new book!

I’ve had an interesting few days, spending long hours in front of my iMac, putting together my first book of photos. The book features a set of photographs that I took at the Alhambra in Granada in August 2009. It is called A Portrait of the Alhambra and is for sale in the Blurb bookstore.…

I wanted to try two services and two pieces of software for comparison.The first was Aperture, the Apple photo management program that I use. This has a book making facility integrated into the program, which makes the creation of a book very straightforward, you then click a button and, providing you have an account set up with Apple, upload and order your book.

Good bits of using Aperture:

Easy to do
Easy to order

Bad bits:

Very slow to upload
Text options limited (somehow couldn’t use different fonts v

Settling in

I only joined RedBubble at the weekend and am now settling in nicely. I’ve been impressed at how friendly the community have been and delighted that in the first few days I’ve had one photo on the Featured Art and Photography page and sold three others as greetings cards :-)
As it happens, I do know who bought two of them, but I wonder if it might be of interest to others (cos I know I would be!), to know who the purchasers are? Maybe this would add an extra layer of complexity to the RedBubble administration process, but I’d love to know where in the world my work ends up.
Hello and many thanks to my new RB friends :-)
