This is what I have been working on lately. Illustrations for a children’s book, written by the lovely Olof Sverrisdottir, to be published through Odinsauga in Iceland. I don’t want to give the story away and I can only share a few of these pages. Those who follow me will know I don’t do much in the way of backgrounds so this was a fantastic way of getting me out of my comfort zone. The backgrounds ended up being my favourite part of each image lol.

I am a college student, who makes money on the side by selling my own prints, shirts, buttons, and stickers through Storenvy. Here is why I don’t like those websites where they print your items for you and ship them out while giving you a small percentage. My personal experience is with INPRNT…

Some very helpful advice. I’m looking to get off Society6 and sell stuff through my own store. Although I haven’t looked into Storenvy yet, I’m assuming it’s a bit like Etsy. Customers and lovely fans deserve something personal! I love the idea of writing thank you notes and actually signing my prints that go out. With S6 I don’t have that option and don’t make as much XD. 

Great links to check out too. In the UK I was using badgesaplenty for buttons and a local printer. Time to check out some USA options. Thanks Jacquelin! 

I will add though that S6 has been really helpful while traveling. If you are away from home often or not settled down somewhere yet then it’s nice not having to worry about packaging and shipping things out.
