I have to admit, I have a thing for pillows. Even better when I can see my designs come to life on them. I love Labs and thought I had rescued one from a shelter ten years ago when our dog was only two months old. When I brought her to the vet for her first check-up, he let me know, to my surprise, that we had an Ibezan Hound, not a Lab. Well, she turned out to be a Lab-Ibezan mix. And when those ears of hers stood up like bat wings at around 4 months of age, I knew for sure she wasn't a Lab. We're talking huge ears! So granted, she wasn't the Lab we wanted, but we fell in love with her. She's such a part of the family that I can't imagine our life without her. Oh, and click on the pillow. It will take you to my store. And you can also see the other products, too, while you're there. Thanks for visiting!
After the creation of the art, cleaning and adjusting in Photoshop, the art is ready to upload the the stores I have on the net. The fun one is Zazzle, even though there are many artists that frown upon net stores like that. I actually do pretty well on that site and find it rewarding to see the art on a myriad of products. Zazzle keeps adding to the product line which makes it that much more time consuming to create. I'm not one to use their "Quick Create" button that places the design on a hundred products. I carefully fit my art on products I feel the art looks best on. Quality is definitely better than a bunch of products with ill-fitting art. Click on the picture to see the new products that I've been creating with this design. Thanks for looking!
It's getting wild over at Zazzle with some new, fun, products to design on. My adorable cupid kitties and stylized girl with flowers and hearts are a sweet celebration of Valentine's Day. The nice thing is that the buyer can customize the product with a name making it the perfect gift for Valentine's Day that will send a message of love throughout the year. Hugs and kisses to you all. Thanks so much for popping by!
Click on either the pillow or card to be taken to my Zazzle store where more products with this art on it can be found.
The global search is on for Lilla Rogers to find the next new hot talent. Can you imagine the number of entries there will be? I thought it would be a fun, challenging thing to do. Art for licensing is a totally different animal, way different than the paintings I create, or even the cards I design. It reminds me so much of the fashion biz, where trends rule, and predicting the next big wave can be as daunting as which stocks to invest in. The assignment to create a cover for a journal with a playground theme, with all the job specs were sent by email to all who have joined onto the contest. The inside image of my art is the actual design for the journal cover. They were to be placed on a 8x10 background with our names. This is the first design phase of the search. Fifty artists will be chosen for the next assignment. Eventually it will be down to the chosen one who will have a two year art licensing contract with Lilla Rogers. I wish all who entered the best of luck! Click on the image to see the Facebook page for the global search updates.
