Up Up Creative is Now on Red Bubble

This was not in the plan, opening a Red Bubble shop and filling it with products. But last night a friend got her limited edition Minted Now t-shirt and she posted it on IG and Facebook and now a bunch of people want one, too. So I spent the morning setting this all up. This is the only design available so far, but it’s on more than 20 products (just a few of which are pictured below -- you can see them all here).

I couldn't resist putting it on a clock.

I wanted to reach out and ask you a few questions. I’ve been hearing from some people that they’d like me to teach a class. Some ideas have been proposed and I’ve got a few ideas of my own. But before I really go down that path and do all of the upfront work of designing a curriculum and putting together course materials, I wanted to get a bit more info from you guys.

If “excited” were the word I used to describe being featured in a “Meet a Mintie” article on the Minted blog back in January (and actually I went back and looked, and it’s not the word I used, because actually I didn’t really use a word), then I’m not even sure what magnitude of very I would need to put before “excited” to describe how I’m feeling about this latest Minted-related news.

I've been designing for Minted for just about six years now, and during all that time I've secretly hoped that one day, they'd do a "Meet a Mintie" article about me. Well the did, and I love how it turned out. I'm just gonna leave a link for you right here in case you're interested in reading it and seeing some behind-the-scenes shots from el studio.
