The Merch adventure continues
When I recorded yesterday’s show, I had two completed designs on Merch by Amazon.
After I recorded the show, I opened up Photoshop and finished three more designs. So, I’m halfway to my 10 design limit.
And, oh, yeah, still no income from this.
An interesting thing happened as I was working in Photoshop yesterday. I started playing with the custom shapes that come with the software and I challenged myself to use these shapes in creative ways.
This was another chance to practice mindfulness and see if I could get lost in the design process.
As a result, I figured out a way to create a guy flying with a jetpack and it looks pretty cool.
I also created a psychedelic design by taking a basic shape and torturing it.
My original goal was to simply create two more designs for Merch. I managed three and, more importantly, discovered I really enjoyed the design process.
I can’t wait to get back to it and see what other designs I can come up with.
But wait, what about Podcast Movement?
I don’t have time to work on those designs right now because I leave for Podcast Movement in Anaheim tomorrow morning.
Packing always takes longer than I expect. I’m also taking some pens and notebooks and recording equipment for this show and the new podcast I’m planning.
With about 2,000 podcasters attending, I’m going to interview a lot of people for the show.
You’ll hear about that when I get back, so stay tuned!
Have you tried selling on Merch or another print-on-demand platform?
