It's been a long, unusual road for me in the five years of my post-college artistic career. I still hate graphic design, and my day job has nothing to do with it (office work in a theater), but I do still use Photoshop, Illustrator, and my design skills regularly in my artistic work, even though my focus is on illustration and hand-painted masks. In my quest to make my art available for people to purchase, I have been exploring various Print-on-Demand/Drop Shipping services to offer my artwork not just as prints, but on mugs, shirts, and more. This format doesn't require you to store or pay for inventory, which can help keep startup costs down, and allows you to test the popularity of a wide range of products, and easily scale up as your designs become more popular. They also take care of payment processing and hosting in most cases. One of the best print on demand services I have tried is Printful, which integrates with Etsy, BigCartel, Shopify, Amazon, and more.
This is one design I created specifically for tee shirts and festival gear. It's a continuation of my abstract-deconstructive text series. I developed a style that combines abstraction and neocubism, to create illusory forms within forms, which creates a fascination for the viewer.
