100th POD sale

Just made my 100th POD (Print On Demand) sale, a 1961 Morris Minor outline on a T-shirt

After a slow start it’s picking up nicely. Perseverance pays off! My monthly sales to date this year: 1,1,3,6,9,25,43 and so far 11 in the first 4 days of August. Mainly classic car outlines although some of my photos have sold as well. My top sites are Teepublic, Redbubble and Amazon Merch

My sincere thanks to everyone who has bought one of my works, very much appreciated and I hope you enjoy them. I’m delighted by every sale, that someone liked my work enough to pay to have it printed on clothing, wall art, phone cases and so on. You are all awesome 🙂

Thanks also for the various comments I’ve received, one from Australia sums up what my designs are about: “Simple but great, stands out to all who know the vehicle” – I deliberately don’t add any text, I let the image do the talking. I can’t respond to comments on POD sites as they are anonymous, but I do read them and hereby my thanks!

Mirror Man

“Mirror Man” – a life size mannequin in the reception area of the gym I go to for physio, taken from a low angle to make it appear bigger than it actually is – has been selected for inclusion in the Loosen Art Gallery “Mannequins and Puppets” exhibition to be held at the Millepiani in Rome this November

YAG Curate collection

I’ve had some of my images – as a “Silver level” member limited to 10 at a time – listed on YAG (Your Art Gallery) for a while now, my “Kissing Camels” image was a Runner Up (voted into 4th place, from 80 entries) in their “Animal Kingdom” contest last year and plenty of interest in my work but no sales as yet…

Now a couple of my images – “Stripes” and “Kaleidoscope” (aka “Spectrum”) – have been selected for inclusion in the YAG Curate collection: “our new B2B service, through which we hand select and curate complementary images and offer them to buyers in sets at an affordable price point. Our customers can purchase YAG Curate sets as is, simply sizing and arranging the pieces to enhance an interior space. Or, they can customize the collections, swapping out images better suited to their style and project needs.”

I will receive commission for every sale of my images – looking forward to it!

Spring Photo of the Month

“Dandelion Life” won the Bob Books April 2019 “Spring” Photo of the Month competition \o/

One of the most common plants to appear in spring yet as a “weed” rarely photographed, other than the “puff ball” view of the seed heads. It struck me how very different they look when they get wet; rain showers being another feature of spring…
