Morning and evening
Maids heard the goblins cry:
"Come buy our orchard fruits,
Come buy, come buy..."
Christina Rossetti, Goblin Market
Ah, it's been a such a long, long
time since I last prefaced a journal entry with a quotation. Does anyone remember those days? Are there even any watchers
remaining from then?
I shall come to the point directly. I'm afraid to report that I am presently in dire financial straits. I have almost nothing to live on and am overdrawn on the bank by a sum which will leave me in anticipation of yet more debt in the coming months once it is paid off.
If I could appeal to anyone's generosity in visiting my print shop
and making what little purchase you can from it, I shall thank you humbly and gratefully for your support. I know the selection is poor, but I hope there might be something
that might suit you. Cards, mugs and magnets are also available on most of the images as alternatives to prints.
My Redbubble store
has a similar selection, in case anyone prefers making a purchase from there instead. Though I should like to point out that I have set my cut here on dA a little higher, as the base prices are lower (you won't be making a greater loss thereby).
Alternatively, you may prefer to show your support by purchasing some of my available books, three of which *HouseofChabrier
has so kindly reviewed over on Amazon
. For the moment, print earnings will be of more immediate aid, but I am truly grateful in the longer term if you do indeed choose the books. They are, of course, the real heart of my output and profession.
Thank you so much.
ETA: Prints of two illustrations from Myths and Legends of Russia
are also available from my agent's website: The Frog Princess
and Right and Wrong
. Plus a selection of prints from some of my Folio Society books which have not been enabled here are available from their website
Thank you so much to new watchers, to everyone for all your favourites, for your continued interest, and quite simply for your general tolerance.
I am not always able to reply to every comment and have had to choose not to thank everyone individually for favourites and watches, for which I do apologise. Please be assured, however, that I appreciate them all very much.
