Hello, I was looking for an FAQ or something of the like but couldn't find any, so I'm gonna ask you here: How did you actually start off making money from your creations? Did you just randomly start approaching brands you thought your work might fit with or how did that happen? (Whatever you did back then, I'm glad it worked and hope for tons more of your wonderful designs! :>) - Maike

I started out screen printing tees myself, doing small print runs and handmade products. After awhile I started sourcing factories to make more stuff. It became really overwhelming! Eventually I got into licensing my artwork (so now other people manufacture and distribute), that way I had more time to focus on making art and less time running a business. It’s still a mix of both though! I reach out to people I want to work with and sometimes they say yes! Haha! I also had a full time job until about 6 months ago and I still do a lot of freelance!

Hi! Your work is wonderful, cute and amazing! I'm a big fan!! I can't wait to see more of your stuff. I hope that I can one day get as big and wonderful as you when I have my own shop. :) <3 Lala
