Mermay 2017

Now that we are well into June, here’s a round up of my Mermay 2017 posts.

Starting with an oldie, my mermaid and squishy jellyfish friend! I really need to come up with a better name for this illustration, please any suggestions are welcome!

I have this design printed on a little tote bag, and it’s so adorable, I think it’s my favourite! If you’re curious, you can find the tote bag here along with prints, stickers, cards and travel mugs.

The below sketch of a shower mermaid style is probably my least favourite one, but I couldn’t leave her out!

So far, I haven’t added her to my redbubble shop, but if she’s lucky, she might sneak into my next batch of uploads!

Next, we have otter snuggles!

This one will definitely be added to my redbubble shop soon!

Now, we have a sweet sea horse friend!

I really enjoyed getting carried away with her watery hair, but my favourite bit has to be that pink cutie! They’ll be added to redbubble soon with the otter snuggles.

Finally, my first and original mermaid!

You may have seen her on one of my mugs, which you can find here along with all the usual paper-y suspects!

It’s been great having my instagram feed filled with mermaids, but I’m quite happy to wait until next May for it to happen again!

I’m on Redbubble!

As you may be able to tell from the title, I’ve now added some of my illustrations to Redbubble!

Redbubble is a website where I can upload my illustrations and they handle all of the printing and distribution of them on lots of products – notebooks, phone cases, art prints, mugs, etc etc, lots of stuff! Check it out here.

So, in theory, all I need to do is pop my artwork up there and then everything is taken care of!

I ordered a few tester products and I’ve got to admit, results were mixed!

The first item I received was my spring fox illustration on a cute little mug.

I’m not 100% happy with the colours, they seem a little overexposed (radioactive fox anyone?!), but I’m hoping it’s just due to printing on a shiny ceramic surface! It’s certainly doing a good job for my afternoon tea 🙂

The next items that arrived were my giraffe and otter illustrations on tote bags.

I’m so disappointed with these! I had super high hopes of strolling into town with a cute giraffe bag on my shoulder, but it’s not to be. Again, the colours aren’t quite right, faded and a bit weird, and the illustrations are soft/blurry because of the print being so large – which on the one hand, is my fault for sizing it wrong, but on the other hand, they looked brill on the mock ups, so i didn’t realise!

As I’m unhappy with these tote bag prints, I’ve removed any fabric versions of illustrations from the redbubble shop. Hopefully, I’ll find a solution and then we can all walk around town with Bethany Robyn tote bags!

The last item to be delivered was my ducky illustration as an art board print.

I’m so happy, it’s an adorable addition to my shelf 🙂

So, definitely a mixed reception for my test products!

Currently, I’ve got 12 animal illustrations uploaded on the site, each of the designs is available on a variety of products (click on the illustration to see what other products are available) and I’m planning to add some of my childrens illustrations later this week.

Please have a look at my redbubble shop and let me know what you think!
