Month of October - My illustrations, My goals, My Etsy

The month of October marks my 5th month of joining Etsy. Looking back, my journey as an illustrator is relatively short yet every moment and every drawing that I've created, I'm feeling closer to myself. In fact, joining etsy was one of the best decisions I've ever made :) It motivates me to keep drawing and I've even set a goal to have new illustration every week! Yet, the progress of that goal is slowing down as there are some other important commitments at the moment...

My new full time job has just started last week and I need to limit my time in creating or illustrating. Even so, I take it as an opportunity to allow myself to put more thoughts into the concepts and detailing of the illustrations =p
Another thing, my 'Birds of a Feather' series has completed with total 9 illustrations *hurray ♥* and it is time to start something new. I have some ideas for the new series but I shall keep them as a surprise =p

Same as last month, I'm happy with my small set of goal which is not going to stress me out:
yeevon's illustration

1) to have 5 sales
2) 5 new items

whimsy whimsical paper goods
1) to have 10 sales

2) 10 new items

Just had a new goal game from CB's blog and here's mine!

My goals before 2011
1. To list 50 items with well mixture of prints and merchandises
2. To double up the sales that I'm having right now (fingers crossed, woo~)
3. To start and finish the new series of illustrations
4. Happy smile in any situation

This is going to be fun!!

p/s: Also, I've just added two sets of bookplates to my shop, printed from my illustrations

Still trying my best to finish up the commissioned artworks...
