Classics with colours

A departure from the monochrome pencil lines of my current classic car outline drawing project, I was playing around with ideas for Halloween and Christmas special editions based on my line drawing of a 1930s Morris 8 (which seems to lend itself to this sort of experimentation) and this is where it lead…

Not really what I had in mind but interesting enough in their own right – I especially like the way the car outlines seem to float above the background in an almost 3D effect – that I have made them available in my soitwouldseem shops on Teepublic and Redbubble where they can be applied to print-on-demand products including T-shirts, prints, posters, clocks, mugs, phone cases etc

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!

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!

I’m enjoying making these, learned a lot about Gimp (especially layers), and honing my “style” – I like to represent these classic vehicles with as few lines as possible

Car lines

I created a line drawing of a Hillman Imp – my first car – for myself and was so pleased with the way it turned out (after many iterations, as ever practice makes perfect) I decided to do some more

The first drawing was black-on-white, almost on a whim I did an inverted version and uploaded it to Teepublic where it sold on a T-shirt within hours 🙂

So encouraged I made two versions of the original VW Golf GTI and Triumph Spitfire (both cars I once owned – the Golf also sold on a T-shirt within hours of uploading) followed by a Morris 8 (one of my dad’s favourites), a Ford Transit van (suggested by Chris, a vehicle we both enjoy driving) and a 1958 Plymouth Fury (made famous by the Stephen King novel “Christine”)

Available in my soitwouldseem shops on Teepublic and Redbubble where they can be applied to the various print-on-demand products on offer including T-shirts, prints, posters, clocks, mugs, phone cases etc
