As today slips towards evening, I’m trying to turn my thoughts to the year ahead and work out what the heck I’m supposed to do next. No easy task, and one that’d be made a lot easier if I didn’t have to keep stopping to blow my nose and cough every five seconds. Having had the most persistent cold for the last week and a half, I now find myself back in Bristol with a dwindling supply of tissues and my head full of snot. Not the start to 2017 I’d have chosen.
Today was the day my online shop finally became a reality and opened it’s (virtual) doors to the world. It’s been a long time coming, as I discovered there’s a neverending list of things to do before you can become an etsy seller, but the big day has finally arrived!
To start things off, my collection of British Sea Life greetings cards are now for sale and over the next few days I’ll be adding my other greetings card collections. To take a look, just click here.
At the end of last year, I mentioned a few of my illustration goals for 2016. One of those was to open an etsy shop*. So for the next few weeks I’m going to be working on creating a range of products to eventually sell in my very own etsy shop!
Each range will consist of a selection of cards and prints themed around a particular subject and the first of these will be illustrations of British moths (which goes some way towards explaining their abundance on the blog recently).
As I’ve finished one already, you get a little preview now of the first in the series and at the end of next week I’ll show you another one. This one’s an Oak Eggar moth.
