BoomBoom Prints Shop Open!

Hello! I have opened up shop on BoomBoom Prints. They actually contacted me to see if I was interested in selling my work on their products. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that their focus is on the kids' market. My art and style strongly skews more towards this market so I was instantly intrigued. Although I only have a few pieces up, I will be continuing to add to my shop during the next few weeks. Here is a screen cap of my shop:

I'm really excited about this shop. As much as I love my Redbubble and Casetify shops, I feel confused if my work will sell due to it's more juvenile style (although surprisingly enough a lot of my cuter styles sell the best!). I'm hoping to populate this shop with all of my cutest illustrations and perhaps shift focus at Redbubble and Casetify to maybe some experimental more mature work (we'll see).  I may just post the same work on both sites seeing that the products they offer differ.

It's been thrilling to see so many purchases being made on my Redbubble shop. It's not a full time salary but it's great to see people appreciating my art enough to buy products with my work on them. It really brings me a great deal of joy knowing that I'm doing what I love and getting great feedback!

Net Picks - Fun Animal Friends

I'm really enjoying the work I've been doing recently. I've been doing a lot of illustration work targeted towards kids. This is what I've always dreamed of doing, really. This week my Net Picks focuses on adorable animal illustrations.

  1. Clare Westwood - I love all these cute animals! They all have so much personality and I love how she used the negative/background color to define details (like the fur on the lion's mane and the patterns on the turtle shell). Please check out her blog for more work.
  2. Helen Dardik - I love Helen's style. She is so talented and has such a distinct style. Please check out her website for more work.
  3. Amy Blay - I love how Amy injects pattern into her illustrations which tie all the animals together. Love the bright colors and cute expressions! Please check out her website for more work.
  4. Hsinping Pan - I love when artists illustrate the alphabet! Hsinping's work is so cute and love all her takes on each animal. Please check out her website for more work.
