About a year ago I began working on HandmadeCloud with the intent of it becoming a fully digital download shop that would supply individuals, families, teachers, students, interior designers and other businesses with original stock illustration. After many attempts and much frustration to get the site working properly, I decided to switch shopping cart systems. I’m very excited to say that Big Cartel works wonderfully in conjunction with PulleyApp and will serve all your illustration and decorating needs from within the comfort of your own home.
What exactly is a digital fine art download? A digital fine art download is a high resolution scan of an original piece of artwork. It is really no different than a photograph taken with the digital camera. It can be printed on Tshirts, coffee mugs, shoulder bags or even dinner plates. You can print it out on your home printer, bring it into your favorite local printer or upload it to a Print on Demand website and have them print it out at the size you want to later frame for hanging on your wall.

About once per season I run a lovely sale in the fine art shop.
Use coupon code “SPRING2011” for 25% OFF your total order during check-out.
This sale will run May 9th to May 14th in my Etsy Art Shop.
As wedding season approaches keep in mind that fine art does make a wonderful gift to those two special people who are tying the knot.
Well, Happy New Year Everyone!

Client – Christopher Plante from San Francisco, California
Title – Red Gate Run wine label illustration and hand drawn lettering
Medium – Kroma Artist Acrylic and Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens on Arches Watercolour Paper
Size(s) of original(s) – Front label – 5 by 8 inches (12,2cm by 20,3cm) and back label – 4 1/8 by 4 1/8 inches (10,5cm by 10,5cm) which is exactly double the size of what the labels will be printed at
The final illustrations were adjusted for colour and mandatory text added by Christopher’s graphic designer in California. They are printing labels for both smaller and larger bottles, hence the two designs for the back label. I’m so pleased with the results and can’t wait to try the wine!
It was a great working with you Christopher! Thank you.
If you have a project that you feel I’m well suited to work on, do get in touch with me. Have a look through my blog, Etsy shop or Flickr Gallery for a sampling of previous illustrations I’ve completed.
