Weekly Update on Emotional Frenchies' Designs
The last few days allergies hit me pretty hard, I was desperate to feel better, so I took some allergy medication that I bought from the pharmacy. The medicine didn't help much, and on top of that, it brought up my mood issues. On Saturday, I decided to get out and watch Hidden Figure at lunch time. However, I made a mistake of not checking and purchasing the ticket ahead of time. It was raining, and when I got over there, I found that tickets were sold out. Got back to my car, considered to head over to the other theater for the movie. While trying to pull up movie schedules, my phone's internet connection was not present. Then I thought maybe I would go to Precision Camera to check out some cool new cameras. Got back on the road and the traffic was horrible because of the rain. After being stuck on in the traffic for 10 minutes, I concluded maybe that was not a good day to be out and about. Thankfully, there were some great restaurants in the area. I stopped for lunch at a Mediterranean buffet restaurant because I was starving. They didn't have my favorite fried chickens today, but the lamb shanks were heavenly!
Why weekly update?
Finally, I got to sit down to write a weekly update after that Saturday chaos. The weekly update is a better fit for my busy schedule. I won't do a monthly update because I would forget everything I had done after a whole month passed. I believe it is important to do a brief look back so that I can track my progress in work and seek improvement from it. Since I often do too many random things in my daily life, this is a good way for me to keep a record of what I have done and I can continue to build my ideas on top of my recent work.
Emotional Frenchie drawings and designs
Drawing French Bulldogs and designing for products has been my latest focus. If you haven't been aware of it, go check out my illustrations and designs on Redbubble, Society6, and Zazzle! You may ask why I spend so much time distributing my work across so many platforms? First of all, being a seller for years on the internet, I learned to not depending on solely single platform. Back then when I was with Cafepress, they grew greedy and decided to cut down artist commissions, and I was forced to make a hard decision to abandon it like many other independence artists. It is not beneficial for me to stick with one website unless one of them wants to provide a great collaboration deal, or would heavily promote my work. Otherwise selling on multiple platforms, seems to be what everyone is doing these days. Also, each website has slightly different product options; they allow my supporters to choose and find products that suit them better.
Last week, I spent a significant amount of time working on my Artist Shop on Threadless. It is a newer platform, and it surely took me some time to figure out the best way to put my designs on Threadless Artist Shop. A shortage of time seems to be the common theme for my daily life; it probably will take another week before I completely customize and refine my Threadless Artist Shop.
Here are some designs I published last week on top of many sketches I have done while watching TV shows at night. I have been getting really comfortable with sketching and drawing on my iPad Pro. It allows me to be more productive and I can spend more time accompanying my dog. Lastly, feel free to share my Emotional Frenchies designs with your friends and family or any dog lovers you know!
