This week I made the decision to start selling my art!
I’ve had a redbubble profile for a little while but Just never allowed myself to share it with the world – even when people would ask me where they could get my art I’d get all shy and stuff and not really say.
But earlier this week I made a sale of an older painting that gave me an aha moment.
I realised that if I am doing this to see if I really can make it as an artist – then I shouldn’t hide from selling said art either. It would seem common sense but fear is horrible like that…
So I’ll use this post to let everyone know that I have decided on two places to start with (if you don’t count deviantart).
The first is Redbubble – I love how fun and quirky this site is. I’ve uploaded a few paintings, and doodles (which just look so nice on their products! lol) and I’m also cleaning up some of the hand lettered verses/quotes that I’ve done.
The other is Artpal – Has lots of options for framing and matting/mounting and I’ve read some good reviews on it so feel confident about it. But I think I’ll only upload my finer art and illustrations on there as it has a gallery feel.
(I would have loved to try FineArtAmerica but that just felt weird since I’m not American? is that strange? lol)
Anyway I’m still working on getting my other art ready for upload so I’ll be updating regularly and I’ll also be trying other sites as well in time (please let me know if you have any suggestions :)).
I’m still working on selling originals so that’s not yet a thing – I’ll let you know when it is!
Aaand thats enough of my self promotion – phew! that wasn’t so bad…
Thanks so much for reading! ^_^
