Our Newest Artist Is Carla Martell

Below she will tell us about herself, and how she happened upon Zazzle:

My name is Carla Martell - I'm an illustrator, and I'm pretty new to Zazzle. I discovered it through an online illustrators forum that was discussing merchandising and print on demand sites - I've always had a love of print, pattern and the different ways illustration can be used on products. Hearing about Zazzle, I was very excited and immediately wanted to give it a go! My favorite medium has always been pen and ink, and I love traditional printmaking techniques, but for my Zazzle store I've been using a combination of hand drawn illustration, rendered digitally. I've just started teaching myself Illustrator and after a few weeks of tearing my hair out I am learning to love it - it's so easy to rework and resize designs and I think the boldness of vector graphics suit the style of Zazzle products. There are lots of animals in my store, designs created from hand drawn text, and birds! It's definitely whimsical, colorful and lighthearted, with an emphasis on fun.
