First sale on my new Teepublic Print-On-Demand shop: a hoodie with my “Veni Vidi Villon” design, featuring a photo I took of the tree opposite our house.
“Veni Vidi Villon” is a play on words based on the poem “Ballade des dames du temps jadis” (“Ballad of the Ladies of Times Past”) by François Villon, and its interrogative refrain “Mais où sont les neiges d’antan?” (“But where are the snows of yesteryear?”) – an observation on the ephemeral nature of fame.
This and many of my other designs also available at my Redbubble and Society6 stores.
A busy few weeks over the Christmas/New Year period, with not much time for
I did manage to revamp my Etsy and EBay shops, where open edition prints of my images are for sale, so they’re up-to-date and consistent with each other.

I have added another print-on-demand site at Teepublic, very similar to the others but hopefully accessing a different market.

galleries and magazines, as framed prints in physical exhibitions, and in
various publications. Pretty happy with
2019 promises to be another interesting year – watch this space!
