So I finally managed to combine my blog with my website, and revamp the overall design. It's simpler but I think it works.
Basically I wanted to have a simple gallery page with a selection of my most recent work; you know the professional selection. But I finish each print so slowly I figure a blog page will be a way for me to update regularly on my process. I am going to try and photograph works in progress, which is something that I think interests printmakers. We like to dig into the technical how of art.

So I was thinking of making some more bookbinding tutorials. There is hardly anything on Deviantart on the subject. And it would be a good way for me to remind myself. I was thinking that the coptic binding would be a good place to start and would connect well with my covers tutorial. I am just curious if there is any interest in something like that. I am a perfectionist (lol) and there would probably be a lot of it. So if the idea of tutorials makes you excited, let me know and there will be a higher chance I will make some.
So I finally started up my Etsy shop! skoonberg.etsy.com
I have just started to list pieces on there so there will be a bunch more soon but it's up and running. Hopefully I will have it all polished up and full of items by the end of the week. I am going to try and sell everything I make and have made. I am really new to the online business thing so any advice or encouragement is appreciated. Everything purchased in my shop will ultimately help me pay for grad school :D
Just to be clear what you buy from Etsy are hand pulled original prints and not to be confused with digital reproductions.
