It's been a while since I've posted a blog entry which is BAD, and I apologize sincerely.
Much has been happening including big life changes, which includes making preparations for getting married and moving to the US, but also a focus on creating products based on my original illustrations.
I've researched information on making a living as an illustrator and found that a big part of it is selling products. The first manifestation of this was my books- more on that another time- and now I have joined Zazzle that allows creatives to have access to quality products which includes T-shirts, bags, shoes, pillows, blankets, shower curtains, mugs, phone cases and more. This is how my Emoji series was born.
I wanted to have a way I could practice my illustration skills in photoshop primarily and make money from them, so I started the necessary research to do just that effectively. I created the Quote Case store and began making art for primarily iPhone cases. As time goes on, I have the full intension of expanding out from there into much more products so check back for more updates!
Speaking of updates, I have added new art to my digital illustration portfolio that includes the emoji series. Also changes to the main site menus have been done for categorizing the digital from traditional drawings .
Finally, speed painting videos are on the way! I'll have a separate blog entry for that next month.
That's it for now, thanks for visiting and see you again soon!
