~ Open for business ~

I am open for business...

whahaha this sounds so funny.

But its true though ^_^.

After the stamp collaboration, Nicole was so kind to place the cards I made for her on her blog. You can see them here.

She actually asked me to make one card....but I added two more. I couldn't stop drawing hehehe.
But she got so many lovely comments on the stamp and drawings and there were a few that wanted a drawing as well. So when I looked at my blog, I realized that when people read it, they couldn't see if they could request a drawing. So that's why I made this post with more information. I guess this was kinda obvious whaha.

So dear readers, if you want an illustration, send me an email ( with the following:

- a picture of yourself or other loved ones

- any specifics regarding elements that needs to be included, like piano, animals, landscape,
situation etc. You can also include your hobbies and so on.

- the size of the drawing

- color preferences

For now the prices for an a5 size illustration is EUR 9,90/$14 and for an a4 EUR 14,90/$22.

If there is something else you want to know...just ask! I'm sure we can figure something out.

Oh a little detail, even though I blog in English, readers from Holland can email me in Dutch of course. I don't know if it's stupid to add this little detail...but still I add it. So there it's added ^_^!

If you live abroad, let me know as well and I will look at the precise shipping costs and give you an estimate.

Also let me know, by when you need an illustration. Just keep in mind that i actually need to create and send the illustration to you okay ^_^!

You guys get the picture right...just send an email! Communication is so easy these days.

Well I hope this makes it all a bit more clear.

Ciao Xoxo!!

  8. All the best to my budding entrepreneur... am glad that you came up with this idea. Am sure it will be a success.
    Hi plz watermark your sketches that you put up on your blog because anybody can easily copy, paste and claim it to be theirs. You need to protect your creations.

  9. @ Nicollie: Hi Nicole! Thanks so much! This whole thing kinda started rolling a bit faster, thanks to you ^_^! So thanks a billion! Big hug!! Xx

    @ Mystique Earth: Hello again! Yes, I've changed my header! Glad you liked it ^_^. I will change it so now and a then. So stay tuned!

    Thanks so much for your good luck wishes! Hmm who knows Ebay, that's a thought as well :D! I will look into it! Till next time! Ciao.

  10. @ The Guys: Thanks so much Guys! I saw the post! That was really sweet of you! I really, really appreciate it! If you want something in the future, just ask okay! Ciao!!

    @ Shas: Thank you ^_^! I hope I can make many others happy with an illustration!

    Oh don't worry about the watermark. I read into this and legally everything you create by yourself, the rights automatically belongs to you. It only becomes a bit more tricky when you sold your designs to a company and a third party copies the design. I can place a watermark on them, I probably will start doing it. But it is more a mental thing that I've protected my drawings, so that I feel a bit more safe.

    I also have a few accounts for a copyright (You can see them on my blog as well). So I'm protected ^_^.

    But you're really sweet to point it out! Thanks dear *HUGS*

  11. Good on ya! All the best with that - why dont you put a notice up on the side of your blog saying you make cards? The cards are cute BTW, nice work :D

  12. @ Ken: Hey Ken! Thanks so much for dropping by ^_^! I will put a notice on the side of my blog that I make cards, drawings and so on. I'm working on a small sketch for that haha. Man! I hope one day I will be as good as you! Dude your skills are simply awesome! Stroll by anytime! Ciao!

  13. TJ, these are so lovely! I will be contacting you at some point about the prices for sending to the U.S. because I think one of your illustrations would be so perfect for my niece! And she would be so tickled to get a drawing of herself!

    Congratulations on being 'open for business' and I really wish you all the success you deserve. You have such a wonderful talent I am sure you will be successful!
