Can anyone still remember me blogging about my print on demand sales on the different pod website on a monthly basis? That was before kids, in the good old days – when I still had TIME on my hands *lol*
Anyways, sales were rather slow in the first quarter of 2023 after a reasonably good Q4/2022 and they are just starting to pick up slowly. I will probably not list all of them but the ones that stick out from the rest.

Redbubble and Teebuplic are not listed. Their seller dashboard is a pain in the a$$ with csv data for spreadsheets. I don’t want spreadsheets, I want links to click on!
I have found Art Grab today, a website where artists can sell unique pieces of artwork, e.g. for album covers. After creating a profile I have added a few square designs. The service does not charge upfront fees and only keeps 20% of earnings when you sell something. It think is a fair deal and I will keep you posted about any updates.
I am over the moon, I mean I am really, really, really happy and soooooo excited about this piece of news!
I have teamed up with German art printing company Artful Canvas. They are based maybe one hour from where I live and this is probably the most local project since trying to sell postcards in a small gift shop around the corner.
What makes my pieces of art special is that I am selling them as part of Artful Canvas’ Unique Collection – this means that every design/art will only be sold ONE TIME. They are no strangers to AI Art, creating and selling some awesome pieces created by themselves and I do think we do get well together. Creating AI Art is a hot topic and I do understand it when people state that AI Art is not “real art”. I do get it, I have never before been able to create such awesome pieces before. It’s as if my dreams have finally become alive and I can express the thoughts in my brain without having to rely on my untalented hands.
Ok, may I present my first three pieces of unique canvas art:
The Sunday Afternoon artwork is a surreal and captivating piece that will transport you to a world of imagination and wonder, where vibrant colours and intricate detail come together to create a true work of art. The unique and captivating aesthetic of this print will add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any room and make it an instant conversation starter.
The Floral Paper Cut artwork is a stunning and aesthetically pleasing masterpiece that captures the essence of grace and femininity. Featuring an Asian woman surrounded by delicate flowers, this print exudes a sense of peace and tranquillity that will soothe your soul. The intricate details and vibrant colours of this print make it a true collector’s item and a must-have for anyone who appreciates beauty and art.
The Crocheted Dreamland artwork is a unique and whimsical piece of art that will take you on a journey through a dreamlike landscape. Featuring a crocheted tree, this print evokes a sense of childlike wonder and awe and will remind you of the joys of childhood. The intricate detail and vibrant colours of this print make it a true masterpiece that will add sophistication and elegance to any room.
Since I had started to mint a few NFT collections offering them for sale, I constantly try to learn new ways of marketing. I thought I might give you some background of my NFTs – the reasons I made them and the stories that hide behind them.
As a start, I would like to tell you a bit more about Princess Goldiskull, a bust of whom is available in my “Creepy Collectibles” collection on OpenSea.
Princess Goldiskull was born to the royal family of the Kingdom of Eldoria, a land steeped in magic and lore. From a young age, Goldiskull showed a fierce determination and a love of adventure, often sneaking out of the castle to explore the wilds of the surrounding countryside.
As she grew older, Goldiskull’s passion for adventure only intensified, and she began to train as a knight, determined to defend her kingdom against any threat. Her natural talent for combat quickly became apparent, and she rose through the ranks of the kingdom’s army, earning respect and admiration from her fellow soldiers.
But Goldiskull was not content to simply serve as a soldier in her kingdom’s army. She wanted to lead her own armies into battle, to make her own mark on Eldoria’s history. And so, she convinced her father, the king, to allow her to form her own army and take command of her own campaigns.
With her army at her back, Goldiskull quickly gained a reputation as a fearsome warrior and a brilliant tactician. Her victories on the battlefield were celebrated throughout Eldoria, and she soon became known as the “Golden Knight Princess”, thanks to the shining armor and helmet made of pure gold that she wore into battle.
Despite her many successes, Goldiskull was not content to rest on her laurels. She continued to push herself to new heights, seeking out greater challenges and ever-more-impressive victories. And as she did, she became a legend in her own time, a true hero of Eldoria whose name would be remembered for generations to come.
