Every year around Christmas time I try to have a clear out of the house before the decorations go up. Almost like a Spring Clean, but… well, colder. I throw out any cosmetics and medicine that might have gone off; donate any cans and dried food that may have otherwise gathered dust to food drives; and find clothes that I may no longer be able to squeeze into but have been living in denial by having them in my wardrobe for a year and donate them to charity.
This year, however, the biggest clean out has been my office (and the longest considering I am still working in it every day, so it has been a very slow process). Looking back over 2014, I have managed to attend 21 conventions as an exhibitor! And, in that time I have had to restock my stall on an almost weekly basis, gather together commissions and constantly add to my pile of stationery, pens and paper. The office at the end of this con year was, as you can imagine, a bit of a state!
So, today was the final day of my slow clean out and I am happy to report that my Etsy stock is finally up-to-date with the correct numbers of items (so I won’t sell out of the wrong things, or oversell stock I don’t have). A lot of these prints are on a ‘once they are gone, they’re gone’ basis as I will be overhauling my stock something crazy next year with brand new work in the pipeline (which I am VERY excited about).
Cirque Du Mort itself will bring a whole host of new stock, prints sketch cards and even the exciting addition of postcards, stickers and buttons(!), but on top of that I will also finally be retiring a number of my prints which either don’t get as much love as the others or simply are getting on a bit and don’t reflect my style of drawing anymore. So, if you would still like to grab some of my more classic convention prints – this could be your last chance.
I will be running a sale on my Etsy store from now until 12/12/2014 for 20% off orders of £10+ So, simply use the code ‘COOLYULE’ to qualify for the discount. You can find my store at THIS LINK.
This will include my very popular mystery envelopes which each contain 2 art prints, 1 piece of original art and one ACEO/Sketchcard (either a print or an original). These are very limited so grab one while you can. I will also be making a limited run of these after Christmas for a New Year sale, but they will have different items inside, so be sure to grab this deal now if you want a little mystery.
