Last week I put my "Modern in Winter" print on my Etsy store and a newly created store on my website. The results have been great and I've been selling quite a number of the limited edition prints. This is a really fun - and rather new - venture for me.
Most of the work I've done throughout my career as an Illustrator, has been commissioned and ultimately owned by the client. That's all great and I hope it continues that way for a LONG time. Selling a print, by comparison, is a whole new kind of fun! I actually get to put my name on it! Imagine that. I can count the number of times on one hand (maybe two) that I've had the luxury of claiming a piece of art in such a personalized way.
In the week since Modern in Denver ran a link, telling readers about the availability of my poster, there has been a really nice response to the offering. The limited edition run of 100 prints is moving along nicely.
I enjoyed tweaking the art from the cover of the magazine: enlarging the homes a bit, adding in one new home to the existing 6, changing the background blue to a vintage-y robins egg blue. I'm very happy with the results and it's been great to hear from buyers that they like the "new" look as well.
Thanks to all you buyers of the print! Absolutely appreciate the support...and enjoy being part of your Mid-Century Modern world.
