Last Import-6, a photo by Birgit Deubner on Flickr.
This process always takes much, much longer than I make allowances for. Cutting the mount card, finding the right photo corners (a 3 hour mission of cycling around the city yesterday was needed before I got lucky), then the packaging: Why does it take 60-80 minutes to wrap 4 packages? I really need to find a better way because this is eating into my making drawings time and I can’t imagine how I can keep on top of punctual postage if I was to offer all my drawings for sale at once.. It’s like keeping a box of ants and fleas under control.
I have a new plan, which is to list half of my drawings from this still ongoing series on ebay and make the other half available on Etsy. It is a way of allowing people to buy ‘now’ instead of waiting for the ebay bids to conclude and at the same time will help me get feedback on Etsy, I hope.
I really love Ebay. It has been fantastic to get such a positive response from Ebay bidders and buyers.
