Hi, everyone! This August has been eventful already, and it’s not even half over! XD In the coming weeks I’ll be preparing to attend my first convention out of state, and third convention overall, and putting together the first two reward packs for the kind people who are supporting me on Patreon! But before too much stuff happens and I have to write an epically long update, I just wanted to write up something to share what I’ve been working on recently!
Phone Cases with My Art, Now on Zazzle!
Two days ago, I opened my own Zazzle store, where you can now find my artwork on products that aren’t paper! Right now I only have phone cases and pouches, but I intend to release other products with different designs in the future.
The design is incredibly simple, and has no banner because I can’t get it to work properly even though I followed the specifications… -A- The banner gets centered, but the left and right sides get cut off. If anyone knows how to fix that, please let me know. I’d like to make the page more colorful!
Although the listing says “iPhone cases”, you can choose other cases as well! Some look better than others depending on the design.
If you’d rather keep your own phone case but want additional protection (or if you’re like me and want to protect your custom phone case as well XD) I also have phone pouches for sale. Like the cases, you can select a different style if you have a different phone model.
As you can see from the pictures, there’s a sale going on through tomorrow (8/15/15) if you want to buy a case and save a bit. ^^
I’m Now on Patreon!
I half-wonder if the art community is over-saturated with Patreon creators, or if it’s still largely unheard of, but either way, I made a page just to get it started. :3
For those who don’t know, Patreon is a platform where fans support creators by becoming patrons. It’s a little like Kickstarter in terms of being a crowdfunding platform, but it’s quite different because supporters give a smaller amount per creation (or monthly), and creators continuously put out new content, rather than a one-time, large-scale project. Often, they give patrons rewards or perks as a way to thank them for their support.
I like it because it’s kind of like everyone is working together towards a common goal, and everyone benefits. ٩(ˊᗜˋ*)و
Creators can support other creators, too! I’m supporting Texan in Tokyo. :3
If you would like to learn more about Patreon or how it works, please check out my FAQ post here. Thank you!!
I’d also like to mention that I’ve updated the banner on my store, as well as the thumbnails for my prints, so the previews are larger and show details much better than before. Next month, hopefully, I’ll be able to start adding new products! Stuff I’ve wanted to do for a while includes acrylic charms and clear files~~ And of course, new print designs >v<
Please look forward to it!
Alright, those are the main updates I have right now. ^^ I’ll write again soon~ *back to work*
