    How I mange my POD shops, Website and Social Media…..

    I have five print on demand sites, a website, a blog, all the social media to go along with that…. seems like a lot of right? How do I manage it? It started with Redbubble. Redbubble was my first POD shop. I have been with this site for a little around three and a half years. I wanted to build up my portfolio with this site and get the feel for how Print on Demand sites work. I did exactly that, as soon as I felt I got the hang of it and had a decent portfolio going…..

    What is Art

    I will start with the dictionary definition. Art: the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.

Art is a voice for those who are afraid to speak or have no voice. Types of Art Painting Drawing Sculpture Typography Printmaking/Screenprinting Photography Digital ALL WORKS ABOVE ARE MINE. EITHER CREATED FOR A CLASS OR JUST FOR FUN. Any of these types of…

It all stated it high school when it was time to pick out electives, I picked two, Photoshop and Illustrator. I fell in love with digital art. My earlier…
