About our company:

We started our company a long time ago with a single Facebook Page with a handful of followers. With a little bit of social media tactics, we are able to slowly grow our Facebook following since around 2010 very slowly. Our facebook started out as a drawing/ illustration art fan page that had not been monetized and we slowly gained dynamic and had a huge following. Then, we started on instagram a few years later and got a huge following of devoted fashion illustration art fans for our original content. We realized that in order to earn a loyal following, we need to invoke people's emotions. We have also had been blogging since the birth of xanga.com. We are aware of the power of a blog and how it has the ability to drive tons of traffic onto a product listing/ any links or website. We then started our first ecommerce business on Etsy in Seattle in 2004, we struggled to figure out what kind of products could sell. We stopped selling our handmade products for a while and then we resumed our Etsy back in 2017 and started to sell some digital download of digital artworks and coloring pages. Business was also very slow and we realized that our long hours on etsy.com creating different listings was not really paying off with such huge competition on Etsy where the market was already so saturated. We then, started to sell t-shirts on amazon merch, redbubble, society 6 also but it also was not really paying off for us. We realized that we did not actually own our customers on those platforms and the sales were not enough to sustain our business. We then discovered shopify and created this shop where we can build a strong email list and create a loyal customer base on shopify instead and take the power back to our hands. We moved our studio from Seattle to Spokane because it is a lot more affordable and peaceful to create an online business. We will also be sharing our thoughts about Spokane, Washington to all our you here as well. Don't forget to Subscribe to our email list at the link below for 10% off your next purchase.
