I have been working on some greetings card designs for a while now. I find it a good way of developing illustration ideas into themes. When I first moved into my studio space a year ago I thought I'd start with a small project to develop some characters and little ideas I had into suitable card images. I often make my illustration work into stories so it was good to do a project which was less ambitious than a story book project but with different and specific challenges of it's own.
I decided to dip my toe into the online shop world and am selling some of my printed efforts on Etsy. My shop is here:
I have made a Christmas collection with gingerbread character designs:
and a Birthday collection based on characters from my Monsters work:
I am curious to see which designs are popular and what online traffic I can attract to my shop and website.
