I think I need to start off in a realistic, attainable place. Keep it simple for now. I have aspirations to make and sell original artwork in my Etsy store. I will do that. Society6 is more about pattern for me. And I need to go with what I know. People love the Sloth. It’s sold so many units completely on it’s own, with no feature spot from S6 and no advertising from me. People found it, liked it, and bought it over all the many hundreds of sloth designs available. I’m still so jazzed about that.
So I thought, why not do more designs based on the sloth pattern using different animals? Go with what works, right?
First up, foxy man.
It was at this point that I realized I did pink AGAIN, so blue foxy was added to offset my apparent pink obsession.
What other animals shall I do? What’s trendy now? Maybe tomorrow I’ll put a bird on it.
A new design! This simple thing took way too long due to some seriously troublesome computer problems. I’m using Illustrator CS2 and, for some reason, it would not rasterize the artwork. It wold just say, nope, too big. I don’t think it’s a problem I’ve ever come across. It also would not export them in JPEG format, saying that the images were, again, too big. On top of all that frustrating nonsense, my computer crashed several times during my saving attempts. I finally had to PDF it and open it in Photoshop to convert it to a JPEG. So weird! I’m hoping a newer version of Illustrator will sort this.
Anyway, Pink Moon. Available on all the usual Society6 products, including the newly added shower curtain!
By the way, this is a mixed media design. The stars and the moon are real space telescope images, very high quality. I expect they’ll print beautifully.
