For those of you who had seen my previous website, you'll see there are a few differences with this new site as well as a more streamlined look that is tablet and mobile device friendly.
The biggest difference with the new and old website is the strong presence of an online store. While products aren't ready to order just yet, I plan on selling various products through the site in the near future.
One of the biggest reasons for upgrading the site and incorporating the online store is that I wanted to move away from being someone who was generating content for social media kudos i.e Likes, Retweets etc. and become an artist that could possibly make money from the hard work I've produced.
2015 proved to be a very busy and hectic year for me and it forced me to really think about how to monetize my work. That's why I felt an online store was key to helping not only promote my work but get my work into the hands of fans.
Now, I don't know if my followers of social media will translate to actual customers but I think it's worth a shot at least. It is so much easier to 'support' an artist with Likes, Retweets, Comments and whatnot but the best way to support an artist to buy their art.
I've been fortunate enough to have some great fans who support my work fastidiously and are happy to buy my artwork.
So yeah - hopefully soon, I'll have the online store fully functional and we'll see if people are willing to part with their hard earned money to support.
Support the artists you love and pay for their work.
