Saved up my money from making tshirts and decals with my friend Kathy for her company and bought me a new fancy color inkjet printer. It’s awesome. An Epson Artisan 1430… it will print studio quality prints up to 13 x 19 in size! And unbelievable images from original art.
I really want to start showcasing some of my illustration and digital art on cards, prints, and other applications. I think they are worthy of it, perhaps others might like them. I’ll have an Etsy shop where I can display them all. And I’d like to get into making custom stickers… like folks love for their planners and calendars… with some interesting original themes, I hope. We shall see.
Another income stream is always welcome in our little homestead empire. Anything that helps to keep the lights on and bills paid, it’s a good thing.
I’ll let you know more, when I get done learning all about it and designing up some lovely things to share! I do know it will be under an old company name that I loved… Kalligraphika. I used to have a rubber stamp company with lots of beautiful stamps and well, it just ended when the whole rubber stamp craze kind of bottomed out. All the art images I sold to a lady for her company… but the name, well, I can use it again. It is a variation of the Greek words… Kallos… meaning beautiful and Graphika, meaning written image, that sort of thing. So Kalligraphika to me means beautiful images. I hope you will agree with that when you can see all I will offer.
