I’m so excited to be writing this right now!
So… Almost a year ago I said I wanted to start selling my art. That never really took off, because I realized that getting the paper, being able to ship things out, and executing the entire thing was going to to take a lot of time and effort that, to be honest, I didn’t really feel like putting in.
But that’s okay, because luckily, a lot of my friends really like stickers.
Ok, let me back up a second.
About a month and a half ago, a friend of mine bought a bunch of really cool stickers from a website called Redbubble. I checked it out, and saw that they sell tons of stickers with cool pictures, sayings, and designs on them. I started to wonder, just because I love to draw, if people could submit their own stuff to the website for other people to see and/or buy.
Well, I read some more and saw that that’s really the whole point of the website! Redbubble is a platform for any artist to upload their work digitally and then sell it to others online, not just on a sticker, but on a mug, phone case, tank top, or simply on a board to hang up on one’s wall.
So, I realized that this is the perfect place for me. Redbubble gives me the ability to sell my art to anyone, anywhere, on anything.
And when I earn the money, I can send 100 percent of it straight to NIMBAL, where the donation helps fund research and studies. These will help prove that Crohn’s disease is in fact effected by diet. And, hopefully, it will make diet a treatment just as well-known as any other medicine. It could help patients around the US and the world who simply aren’t aware or do not believe that diet really is a feasible option for the treatment of Crohn’s or Colitis (IBD).
That is, all of this could happen if people buy the art that I’m putting up.
So, why not start the IBD diet revolution?
But my art here :).
