Psychedelic Zen Designs on Zazzle – Greeting Cards

Customizable Greeting Cards available on my Zazzle Store

I have a variety of colorful greeting cards available in my Zazzle store!  The great thing about these greeting cards is that they are 100% customizable!  You can purchase them as is (blank inside) or you can customize them to fit your needs!  All four of the surfaces (front, inside left, inside right, and back) are 100% customizable.  All you have to do is click the Customize It button on the product page!

You have the option to change the background color inside the card as well as on the back.  Many of the cards have a color on the inside, but you can change that, even to white if you like! You can add text anywhere you want!  The text size and font can be changed as well as the font color.  You can add pictures too.  You can really have fun with these cards, personalizing them or buying them as is and adding your own handwritten message in later.  Surprise a friend or family member with a unique birthday card with a personalized message inside!

Deleted ImageKind Account

I have taken the plunge and decided to delete my Imagekind account.  I doubt most of you have noticed.  I have been a member of ImageKind for many years, and have made few sales (something like 3 sales in 5 years).  I quit at one point and rejoined 2 years ago.  In the past 2 years I have made a grand total of a single sale.  

I feel like the effort to maintain the store is not worth it, especially considering how buggy the interface is, and the fact that they have not made any serious upgrades to their system since 2015.  I only had a free gallery, and the premium galleries do come with priority placement in the search results, but to me it was not worth the $100 a year.  I am sure very popular artists would do ok there, but I will never get any decent amount of sales there.  Thus I have ended my account to focus on other more important things.

Celtic Horse – New Artwork for March 2017

New artwork in the Fantasy folder: “Celtic Horse”.  This is drawn with Conté à Paris pastel pencils on Ampersand pastelbord, 11″ x 14″.  Basically drawn just for fun. I chose to use a a limited color palette, a blue monochrome color scheme.  I layered different shades of blue and blended the edges together.  I wanted the colors to blend together to give it a soft, dreamlike effect. 

Available as an art print and on many more products in my online stores here: Zazzle, Society6, Redbubble and FineArtAmerica.

New Artwork – Fire Wolf

My newest drawing in my gallery is “Fire Wolf”.  It is drawn with prismacolor colored pencils on black Strathmore paper, 9″ x 12″.  It is a portrait of a wolf half lit by firelight and half lit by moonlight.  It is a redraw of an older piece that was drawn in 2005, which I liked but needed an update with technique as well as anatomy and proportion. 

It is currently for sale as an art print and more in my online stores here: Zazzle, Redbubble, Society6, and FineArtAmerica.
