Hello everyone! I want to let you all know that I closed my CafePress store today. Due to the changes in their commission structure, I had been losing lots of income. I don’t know how many of you actually bought stuff from that store, but I will give you alternatives in the future to get merchandise with my designs.
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.
I have selected images available for rights-managed commercial licenses purchase here: http://licensing.pixels.com/profiles/rebecca-wang.html
These licenses are for commercial use, mainly for advertising, publishing (books, magazines), promotional items (flyers, business cards), and packaging (labels, such as CD, product labels, etc).
If you would like to license an image for non-commercial or private use, please contact me.
Zazzle has a new section on their website called Designers, where they feature a designer every week. I was the first featured designer! I am so honored!
You can see their all-new Featured Designer page here: http://www.zazzle.com/designers
Unbeknownst to me, Zazzle featured my store in their blog: https://blog.zazzle.com/2016/04/08/featured-designer-lioncrusher/
I am so excited! If I had known that I would be featured, I would have answered the questions more in detail. But that is ok. I just found out about this today on the Zazzle group I follow in Facebook, so this is a little late.
I also have signed up for a Twitter account. There is nothing there yet, but you can check it out: https://twitter.com/rebeccawangart I will occasionally post older drawings here, but it will not become a portfolio like my Facebook and Tumblr pages. This is mostly for new drawings, works in progress, and news. I will probably be as active on Twitter as I am on Facebook.
I signed up for a Tumblr account today. Here is the link: http://psychedeliczenart.tumblr.com/. There is not much there yet, but gradually over the next few weeks I will add posts with all my artwork. In addition, I will be signing up for Twitter shortly. My Tumblr account will have all of my recent works as well as some old stuff, sketches and works in progress. Some of the images in my Tumblr account are not going to be found anywhere else on the internet.
