Today this blog turns 4 years old.
Luckily I have some free time on my hands.
I have failed to post about the stuff I said I would post about. . .
Okay, I’ll just put it in here:
- Update #1:
One day (September 9), I received an invite from TeePublic inviting me to join their site. They’ve come across my “Cat Person” design and went on to explain how I could earn with them than on Society6.
“Society6 pays designers $2.20 royalties and we pay $4.00 What’s more, shirts on Society6 are priced at $22 while they are $20 onTeePublic. That means you make more money selling your shirt for less, which increases volume. We also will mark down new designs to $14 for the first 72 hours to give you a boost and feature your entire store for $14 once you build out your collection.
Higher quality: Bottom line is that TeePublic preps every art file by hand before it goes to print, we color match each art file and then check each print when it comes off the line. We guarantee we have the highest quality art prints and fabrics of any platform because we take the time to make sure we get it right.”
Hmmm. Very interesting. I decided I wanna try it — since it’s better to have a lot of shops – more chances of selling — but I just did not have the time back then….
- Update #2:
I have been interested in this site: Curioos.com. It’s a print-on-demand site that focuses on selling quality wall art pieces. They were invite-only or you’ll have to apply and get your artworks chosen by the curators before you can sell your art there.
I planned on applying. . . since I thought I’d never get an invite cause I see a lot of really great art pieces there.
One day (September 17), I received an invite from one of the independent curators who work with them. She said she saw my portfolio on this blog and she thinks my work will be a great fit in their gallery! I can’t believe it. I was so excited I made an account right away and uploaded some of my abstract paintings. I didn’t want to sell any of my portrait work because they belong to the owners of the faces I drew.

September 17. . . That day I never expected that after just ten days me and my brother’s cat would pass away. I miss him every single day. The sadness never really goes away. I just get distracted by life. 😥
- Update #3:
But I am very thankful I get distracted by work that I enjoy.
I’m currently a designer for Saturday AM and I love every minute of it. 😀
Saturday AM is filled with very talented and passionate young comic creators.

- Update #4:
Just before writing this blog post, I have just finished designing something for my mom.
That something I shall reveal in the right time. 😉
. . . But it is something I am very excited about.
. . .
It’s funny cause back in the day I always say or tell people who ask that I am not a graphic artist/designer. I forgot how fun it is to do these things. But I guess it’s only ever fun when you’re working on fun stuff or fun products.
(In the same way, I never tell people that I am a blogger. . . because that might cause people to think that I earn money blogging — I don’t. Although of course, I wish I do. Because who wouldn’t want to get paid to blab about things you’re passionate about? Technically, I am only a “blogger” simply because I blog: I post in a blog
I just remembered going to a party where most of the guests were makeup/beauty bloggers. One of them asked if I blog too and I said no.)
Overall, I am happy where I am right now, although I still haven’t reached my goals in life, this is okay.
This blog helped me get through life. . . in a way. It helped me express myself. I didn’t even expect any followers and likes but I did get them and I’m thankful for all of it. I’m happy to know that there are people who appreciate my art and the things that I do and this blog helped me realize that.
. . . although I wish my art could reach those people who likes my art enough to actually buy them. —-That will be my Christmas wish this year.
Yes. I wish. Cause I need more money.
I said it.
And this concludes my blog post for the Fourth Anniversary of my definitely not famous blog.
4 Years = 4 Updates! OH MY GOSH, WHY DIDN’T I NOTICE THAT?
