In the studio, work in progress

I have been working on a new tile series combining text and image. Above are initial pencil sketches on the bisque tile. I work out the lettering on the computer first to control my chaotic handwriting.
Here they are, slip trailed and ready to glaze. I have some orders for customized table tops for children, just putting the name of a child in place of my character's name.
I haven't really figured out marketing for the 6" tiles yet. I think they need to be in a retail setting. I doubt that anyone would actually install them in a bathroom or kitchen. Gah, I really hate marketing...

  3. Gah! Marketing, indeed. The bane of our existence. But still, better than having a boss :-)

  6. Well the first one was ok, but your second one could have been better, like "So, how was that? Like Cat In The Hat?"

    Rhyming all of the time takes vigilance, but I'm sure that it takes time to get all the way there. It's good to see that you're making a start, though.

  7. Mouthful rhymes with Bothell if you actually have a mouthful.
    FYI.
