Am I Ready to Break into the Home Decor Market?

I have been enjoying five weeks of creative madness, taking the Make Art That Sells – Creating Collections for Home Decor online class offered by Lilla Rogers Studio. I can’t tell you how much fun it is, although extremely challenging. Here is one of my assignments for the course–my favorite so far.

Home decor, here I come.

Through Redbubble, you can buy lots of things with my designs on them. Or other artists’ designs on them. Like scarves, cards, tote bags, cushions, posters, art prints, even duvet covers.

It’s raining in Las Vegas, the sky is so dark it almost looks like evening. Dreary, or mysterious? I’ll choose mysterious.

The Ink Nest

Some more of my designs are available on The Ink Nest now. (Thank you to Sabina!) The Ink Nest site is so very lovely. When I am feeling uninspired and blah, sometimes I will go to the site and breathe in all the loveliness to revive myself.

An American Journey Home

I have been traveling across North America, on and off, for the past three months, diligently carrying around my sketchbook, paints, paintbrushes and guitar.

There’s something wonderful about watching your 7 year old niece take one of your creations, and make it her own with some crayons. One of the highlights of my travels, indeed.

Preparations and Reflections

For the past couple months I have been preparing for an extended trip to the US, hopefully to move indefinitely. Between work and my band, sometimes it happens that I find I haven’t picked up a pen or brush for weeks…. and that’s exactly what has happened this time.

Not all was bad though! When you announce that you are leaving for a while, it turns out to be a great excuse to meet up with people in your life that you hadn’t seen or talked to for a while. And my band did a lot of touring and radio appearances, since it will be a while until we can play again together.

In other words, it was a time of preparation, reflection, and playing music. I’m pretty sure a change of scene will bring inspiration and start the creative juices flowing again, and I am looking forward to it.

Here is a close-up peak of a recent job. Can’t believe autumn is just around the corner!
