Warped Portrait of the Artist Damien Hirst
I set up an artist’s account on Redbubble a long time ago but confess to never having really used it. By chance I happened upon a link by an artist on Google+ to their Redbubble profile – at which time I decided to think critically about Redbubble as a selling platform and whether or not I should keep my account there. This led me to write up a review of Redbubble as a sales platform for artists. As a part of this review I thought it would be a good idea to upload some new artwork on the basis that this would help me with my review process. By coincidence I had just completed a new work of art using a 3D image painting program I had just finished writing. I decided to make that piece available as an open edition print on Redbubble as a part of my review process.
I originally intended to make my Redbubble review available here on my blog but judged it to be too long for a blog post. So I’m making it available as an article on my web site. You can find the review here:
The review reflects my feelings about using Redbubble as a platform for monetizing my art. Spoiler Alert: my Redbubble review is a positive one. In fact the process of writing this review makes it more likely that I will become more active on Redbubble. My only negative issues were with regard to the profit potential for artists selling on Redbubble (addressed in the review) and that their web site is not mobile friendly.
Currently I have the following artworks for sale on Redbubble:
- Egyptian Pharaoh King Sahure (the new art I uploaded as a part of writing my Redbubble review)
- Electronic Sound
- Up Close and Personal Female Portrait Art
- Portrait of a Polar Explorer
- Rock Pillar, Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona
- Liberty She Shouted
- Summer Day Forest Scene
- Generative Selfie Self-Portrait
- Metropolis Machina
- Lift Off – Space Launch
- A Mondrian Gone Bad
The Damien Hirst Illustration
I’ve illustrated this post with a small digital painting I just did of the artist Damien Hirst. I’m making a free wallpaper version available for anyone interested. Note that this is for personal, non-commercial use only.
