I have to tell you when I started seriously working on my art it was an outlet that helped me to feel better each day. And that was all … at the time. It still does that for me, but I have branched out recently. I found a couple companies that will partner with you, taking your uploaded art and imprinting it on their products for sale to the public. I was quite in awe the first time I saw MY art ON something… anything! A mug, a phone cover, a spiral book! (I love spiral books!)
Getting the word out… I found it is up to each artist to share the availability of these products on social media and through emails in order for people to find out about them, so I have. I must say I have some very supportive friends and relatives!
My friend Judy is one of those supportive friends. She recently purchased a scarf with one of my designs on it. In fact she was in the class where I created this design and liked it so much that when I told her it was available on Redbubble she immediately looked at the products and chose this lovely scarf to purchase. I anxiously awaited its arrival to see what it looked like and was genuinely pleased when she received it and bubbled over with excitement! She even blogged about it today LOL. So I stole these pictures off her blog (she’ll forgive me) to share with you.
And then I asked her to spread it out a little bit to show the design…
But the funniest thing is yet to be seen. It came with a care instruction tag. Most apparel does, but this one was different. I’m thinking somebody has a sense of humor and thought no one would notice. But we did! It’s in four different languages. Just read the English version and I think you’ll get a giggle.
So I just wanted to share this with you today, thank you Judy for the pictures. 😉 and if any of you are interested in seeing the products they have imprinted with my art you can go here: www.redbubble.com/people/ruthinman
