Santa Claus is not the only mythical creature with a workshop. I now have one, too, though in point of fact my workshop is actually just the kitchen island and an old TV armoire I rigged up with a bunch of art supplies.
Nevertheless, I’ve named my workshop and given it a virtual storefront on Etsy after hundreds of Facebook friends (three or four) suggested that I should start peddling my linocut prints. I was very nervous about the prospect of actually selling stuff I made, but then I went on Etsy and took stock of some of the items other artistes were selling and decided it was okay to throw my wares into the mix. Also, I priced them pretty cheap. Anyway, this is why I’ve been MIA on the blog lately.
I feel I must mention that my prints are in foreign languages (two in Lithuanian, one in French.) You can read the translations by clicking through to Etsy and reading the “product description.” But listen, a picture of an insomniac hedgehog with a Lithuanian adage on it is a great conversation piece.
I’ll be adding more items as I make them. That, or I’ll take the whole thing down and burn the evidence. Either way, won’t you please take a look and share with your friends?
