As a European I can definitely relate to the sucky feeling  of not being eligible for a giveaway from the USA, but I will try to make international giveaways and if have good sales the coming year that will definitely make things easier, so fingers crossed all goes well!

Jacklyn was kind enough to send us a picture of the shirt she got, and if you’re curious to see the prizes and winners of previous giveaways use my hashtag #HisameOCL on social media to find the posts and pictures.

And thank you again Teepublic for sponsoring my event!

As always I look forward to hearing from you and if you have any questions or suggestions on how I can improve the giveaway events feel free to write in the comment section bellow.

Take care,

Hisame!

Hurrah! I just became a Teepublic affiliate

HisameArtwork Facebook

Hi everyone! So I’m happy to announce that I was just made a Teepublic  affiliate. All these banners were made by them especially for me!

For those of you that don’t know, Teepublic is a print on demand service provider and part of the CollegeHumor and Vimeo group. They have apparel, office merchandise and art prints on various types of canvas.

Now what is an affiliate you may ask? Well it’s an artist invited to join the affiliate program and if he joins he’ll get extra visibility though their “featured artist” section (and you do need to have min. 15 prints to apply for that)…aaand if you’re the artist in question, most importantly,  you get an additional 11% from your sales on top of the 20% you get by default.

So that is a 30% cut , who gives you more? I know Society6 gives me 10% for merchandise and I can set my rate for the big art prints and they have discount events and art events so I’m happy with them.

RedBuuble on the other hand you can set the cut how much you want for all prints, it will just increase the base price.  Also Redbubble doesn’t do much of anything to promote artists…no featured list, no curators, they don’t police for art thieves and don’t even get me started on Zazzle and Etsy…and there is more but I’ll rant another time. This post is about Teepublic and

get this, the T-shirts are 14$! So the extra cut you get as a creators doesn’t mean higher prices for the consumer as the T-shirts are cheaper than what is the normal price for these in the west. I’ve only seen lower prices for P.O.D. companies in Asia where a T-shirt I design can be 8$ without my cut or 10% cut but the shipping for custom items is big from there to here so it depends where you live. Conclusion of this  horrible horrible math: Teepublic is a good deal.

And an extra bit of good news is that on top of the “3 days new print discount” they also organize site-wide discounts periodically. So subscribe to the newsletter so you don’t miss the extra discounts!

The 10th #HisameOCL in a nutshell

How it started:

Hi everyone! So the 10th #HisameOCL has ended and the winner was @Nikiole! Thank you to all who participated. The event was held on RabaDaba because I reached a new milestone on that platform. It’s a really nice community and the admins are awesome so I definitely recommend it.

Updates on Farmopoly the board game

As you may know I’ve been working on a board game named Farmopoly. I’ve always liked Monopoly type games and strategy games in general so I created this board game in its spirit.
board game
It has it’s slots with different themes to help kids get acquainted with different types of animals and governmental organizations: mammals, birds, vegetarian, carnivores, monarchy, federations etc. You have the fun of a classic monopoly game but with small differences so it resembles a year on a farm and the work that that implies.
