While waiting for paint to dry I have been pondering using artworks on other surfaces and creating hybrid paint/digital works.
I should be adding some new prints to the Etsy store on Monday. The first one, a screenprint, isn't new but hasn't been on sale there before. The other two depend on what the proofs look like when I get them on Monday.
I can only assume that changes that Facebook made for small businesses during Covid lave led to this; because after over a year of trying to get it to work I can finally sell items through Instagram. Admittedly the products take you to this site and then either on to Etsy or a link to e-mail me for a Payment Link but still, it's cheaper than a monthly payment for an e-commerce option.
What's a payment Link I hear you ask. Well, a Payment Link is something that I will send to you via SMS, Whatsapp or email. It offers a great alternative payment method when you can’t pay face-to-face. Once I have sent the link you can enter your card details on your phone, tablet or computer. None of your information is stored and as soon as payment is sent the link is deactivated.
This year's Urban Art Fair has kicked off. No sunny street camaraderie for the artists this year though. We are all online socially distanced but artistically united. It is mostly happening on Instagram and twitter but some artists have open studios. Follow the #urbanartbrixton and #artistsupportpledge hashtags to find something new for your home/office
