My goal is always to make art that makes me happy, but that doesn't always mean that it is particularly sellable, and that's totally ok in my book. It's not always about making money. Sometimes though, when the planets align and Odin smiles down on me with his one eye, I make something that is both artistically gratifying and also just might be sellable.
I used to sell some of my super cute stuff on Etsy, but having run out of time and motivation during school, I let all my listing lapse. What I've done recently is refurbish my Etsy shop nicolecrock (unique name I know) to sell the artwork that fits more into my current conceptual art practice. Right now that means lots of Tessellations. I'll keep adding different artwork, both 2 dimensional and sculptural, to Etsy as I come up with it.
Now for the cute stuff, I've moved that practice over to my pal's at Strelka Collaborative. They are super cool and have both an Etsy shop and sell locally at different craft venues. They have lots of adventure themed items and I fit right in.
