Top Selling Art for December from the online stores I trade with was a surprise.
Every month I get a monthly sales report from a lot of the sites I try and sell my art on, or there is an online version that can be scanned. Some time back I did an image called “The Boxer“, which you can see here! It was a quick attempt at an idea that popped into my head. Whilst doing my Animal Behaviour series I have had that image stuck in my mind. Mainly as one friend was convinced the glove was not positioned correctly.
Anyway, just before Christmas 2016 I released the (above) image again, after re-rendering the basic concept, but doing in a more realistic way. The reports for December from the big selling sights are basically hidden until I receive them. And the end of January has seen these reports come in now. I was shocked to find that this print has actually sold over 60 times in print form!
It was a plan to do more dogs in the series as they seem popular, but this has inspired me to add several breeds to the list. At present I have “The Boxer“, dachshund, pug and bulldog. The near future will see chihuahua and Great Dane hit the list, but many more will be coming in the coming year. If you have a suggestion for a breed then use the contact form and send it in. If you have any of these breeds and fancy a gift for them, then you can find them in the store. I also have a commission form you can use to request a personal portrait of your favoured companion animal.
Looking forward for some more sales in this area and many more in others. Hope you enjoy the image as much as I really enjoyed doing it.
1 creative person, slightly matured
2 tablespoons aptitude
1 piece of aesthetic flavouring
6lbs hard work and sweat
4 ideas more than most
salt of the earth to taste
Take a creative person and stir in some aptitude, thoroughly from the start. In time, mix in the aesthetic flavouring with the most appropriate tool at hand, and then, fold into the mix as much of the hard work and sweat that the mix can take. Sprinkle in the ideas; the more the better. And finally, as all is cooking, a pinch of ‘salt of the earth’ to give it the necessary character. Leave to cook over time and serve when required. Tasty treat in a tasteless world.
