Yes it is. After a little deliberation (I have a penchant for snap decisions), I've decided to go pro. Yes, I'm going to sell out and sell some pixel bead art on Etsy. I've been thinking about it for a while, and was encouraged by my first sale, which came about on Instagram. For the record, if anyone gets the chance to deal with @snaps_uk_steelbooks, do it - she was a great first customer!
So, please check out my Etsy store: CaveOfPixels . The first item for sale is my 8-bit Godfather piece. As much as I love all the pieces I've created so far, my games room is rapidly running out of wall space, and the wife will only stand for so much of my hobby to dominate our walls! So I'm going to continue to make pieces for me, and pieces to sell. Hopefully I'll get some custom orders too, let's see how it goes.
So, in light of this new direction, I've decided to focus my website more, as well as the social media I use to promote it. This means a rebrand! All the big companies do it, so why not me?
I'm sure I'll be bigger than Apple by next year. But seriously, this site started out as a place for me to self publish my reviews of retro games and videogame movies, then I discovered beading and developed a small obsession, and now I'm focused mainly on that, so a title more befitting the theme of the site seemed to be needed. So, say goodbye to the Cave of Monsters, and hello to the Cave of Pixels!
Here is my new Twitter name: @caveofpixels
And Instagram: @caveofpixels
And Facebook: Cave of Pixels
So if you haven't followed/liked yet, what the hell's wrong with you?! This is all good stuff and you need to get involved! Thanks :-)
And now I will continue to go through my site, fixing all the links that broke when I hastily decided to change everything! Oh well, I wouldn't do it if I didn't love it...
My name is Iain and my addiction is making pixel bead art. My main inspirations are comics, video games and movies.
