A New Direction

Jovian Sunstorm by Gregg Weiss

Ooof! There are so many different platforms in this internet world. As I was studying sites for marketing and creating community, I saw a new direction: digital print on demand through a site called Red Bubble.

I’ve avoided sites like that because they also print t-shirts and I saw that as a direct conflict with the shirts we print by hand at Phantom Chicken. However, the art images Gregg has been creating lend themselves really well for digital printing!

Like this piece: Jovian Sunstorm… this one is one of my personal favorites!! This was hand printed, mixing inks on screen. The layers of ink create such a rich palette of color. I get lost looking at this!

What is very exciting is that I can take small parts of this print, edit and create digital print files, and then Red Bubble prints it on all sorts of stuff. This image looks fantastic as a scarf!

We get a small percentage of each sale on that site, so it’s not like it’s going to be a big money-maker… but still – I love the idea of so many different options!

Spoonflower is another digital printing company, but they print on fabric yardage and create wallpaper and wrapping papers. I think these images would look so AMAZING as a fabric pattern! So… that’s what I’ll be working on over the weekend.

I’m also creating a back for my Third Eye Chakra Quilt. Once that’s done, I’ll be doing some basting… and trying to figure out HOW I’m going to quilt that! I have ideas, but I’ll have to do a little planning before I start.

What are you working on today?

  1. I am glad you are finding outlets for your creativity. Just a word of caution–don’t spread yourself too thin or burn you out. Surely, test each one and then pick those that will support you best. I am only speaking from my own experience. Only you know what you can handle, so I will leave it at that.

    Today I am working on recouping from helping my sister yesterday.

    1. You must be reading my mind… I was just thinking how I need to focus on one thing at a time. I do have a way of getting side-tracked often. Hope you are able to recuperate and rest well today!
