Featured Craft artist of the Week: CuteCartoonPortraits

This week I would like to welcome Joanna G. from CuteCartoonPortraits. She love to draw! If you need to have a custom banner or cartoon, she the lady to contact. CuteCartoonPortraits is offering my readers 25% off, so let’s read on and find out how we can get the coupon.

1.What would you like us to know about you?
I am a Motion Designer by day, and an illustrator by night. Everything I do seems to involve some type of creativity.

2.When did you discover Etsy?
A few years ago when I was selling light switch covers. I was blown away by all the talent out there! I have not looked back since.

3.What prompted you to open an Etsy Shop?
I was in school and was always looking for creative ways to make a few bucks without having to resort to working at a fast food chain. It worked! I'm glad it did because this is a really awesome way to make ends meet.

4.What do you sell?
I specialize in custom cute cartoon portraits of your family, pets, and loved ones. 

5.How did you come up with your shop name?
I wanted a name that got right down to the point. I think “Cute Cartoon Portraits” does the trick :)

6.How would you describe your shop?
Cute. Cute. Cute. I'm an expert at cute.

7.What inspires / motivates you?
Good art and good music are a must. I try to visit sites like when I start to feel the creative “blahs”. This site is a sure cure.

8.How has Etsy changed your life?
Etsy has provided me with a way to do what I love for money. What could be better than that?


9.Where else can we find you? (Do you have a website or blog outside of Etsy?)
I have a more official selling site:

10.Is there anything else you would like to share?
How about this doodle of a dancing couple? (pic attached)

12. How much time do you spend on your shop each week?
It varies from week to week, which mostly depends on how busy I am at my day job. But, the more time I spend on my etsy shop, the more custom portraits I get to draw, the happier I am.
13. How do you promote your shop?
14. Right now I've been doing plenty of interviews like this one. It will help spread the word and get people to know who I am.
