Suggestions or Requests
I've recently started taking art requests from people who are trying to support my art shops. If anyone wants to make a request for a t-shirt design or phone case design, email me or contact me on facebook, twitter, or instagram! Here is one design a friend of mine requested for her new iPhone 6s she pre-ordered.
I'm usually really bad at promoting my products, especially when we have a promotional discount code. I will try my best to post promotional codes here on my blog and share it on Twitter, Instagram & Facebook. Thanks to all who buy my art!
Respect for Artists
Dear 99design contest holders:
As much as we appreciate the opportunity and artistic challenge, many of you have little respect for the amount of work we designers put in to even be considered as a winner. The return on our investment is very small. It is so rude to expect dozens of people to create and revise multiple designs for you each, just so you can pick only 1 at the end. I think the purpose of these contests should be more fair to the designers and made more clear: it is to find a great design or designer. If you want more designs, you should then hire the winner for a 1-1 project which by the way we get more $ for than contests since 99designs keeps alot of the prize amount. Please do not take advantage of our time. I refuse to spend hours revising work for which I end up losing. You need to choose 1 person and work with them. You should be able to spot what you are looking for at first submission. I will not create 4-6 designs for you to even consider me to be a finalist. That is simply ridiculous. 1 design should be enough for you to like my work and hire me or decide to pass.
I've had contest holders tell me I was their favorite style wise but they wanted more designs. So i agreed to create 3 more, only to see an hour later they ended the contest early and declared a different winner. Why is this even allowed?
While I've been away working on other ventures, I felt inspired to create a new design. Check it out at Redbubble.com Also comes on T-shirts, stickers, and more.
Here is a sexy military pinup I drew about a year ago. Semper Fi, representing the United States Marine Corps. Hoping they won't take her down again for violating some trademark : ) So she may be up for a limited time only lol. Now available on leggings, how cool is that.
Won a new challenge
I decided to try out another contest on 99designs. I haven't been working on them in a while. But this one was a success and fun to work on. Check it out here.
Won Pin-Up contest
This was a fun challenge. I used several different photos as inspiration for a pose, and also modeled myself to get the shirt to look right. Painted in Photoshop. Check out the contest here
