Before I start this post, I need to turn to Google:
O, thee Lord of the Internet, please hear my voice, voice of a humble mortal who’s future depends on your grace and mercy. In this blog post there will be a link. A link to my new site. This link is not purchased or paid for. It does not break any of your heavenly rules. It’s just a simple, legitimate link from my site to my site. Please don’t sanction my blog for it.
Please don’t unleash your vengeance on me like the last time I put a link on my site and you thought it was breaking your rules. That time you removed my ratings to zero and you banned this site from Your heavenly Kingdom. It took a century of correspondence before you gave me my ranking back and let me back into Your Kingdom again.
Thank you, o, you allmighty. I appreciate it and I know you will be mercyful and allow me to put a link to my new site in this blog post without a punishment. I am just trying to inform my visitors and the readers of this site about my new project. I promise, I will also pay for adWords and you will get your share too.
OK. Now that I put down a plegde to Google, the one and only ruler of the Internet, I hope it is safe to tell about my new project now.
Those who have been following this blog know that ever since loads of others started to offer gazillions of gigabytes with Photoshop brushes for a buck I realised that this is not a way for a struggling artist to survive any more. I could have put my prices down to few cents too, but this would be sellout and I just couldn’t to it. Sorry. Also, it wouldn’t be fair towards all of you who purchased my Photoshop brushes before. Also, another good think about it is that those of you who purchased my brushes can rest assured that not many people have those. So, we are all happy.
Then, what I did, I tried to make a few $$$ with the Cats Magazine – for iPad and iPhone. This too did not turn out well because of the expenses I had, not just for content but also for Apple and the company who was providing application for a monthly fee (and that was the cheapes I could find). All of the revenues were eaten by them. Also, since I am not much of a businessman, I wasn’t successful in getting any advertisments for Cats Magazine. How cool is that? Not cool. :) But it was a good idea and if some of the big companies stumbled upon it, I am sure they would be interested in buying it or getting advertisments there. Anyways, as I said, not much of a seller so the magazine does not exist any more but the web site does :)
Today, there is no more Cats Magazine on Apple store, but there is a CatMagg.Com web site which I still work on and I intend to keep it as a passionate cat lover :)
So, I figured, ok, I always have time to quit and give up, but before I do that I just got another idea which I found to be really cool. As some of you might know, I sell my work in some of the galleries along the Croatian coast. These are my photos printed out on canvas and applied to wood which I manually cut, carve and paint.
So, as I was investigaing various materials to which photos can be applied I ran into Kapa®fix. Now, Kapa®fix is a foamboard, meaning it’s really light, meaning it can be attached to the wall without drilling. I don’t know about you, but I don’t like drilling, although it is not me who does it but my hubby, still, it takes time, preparation, it’s noisy, dirty, a regular mess and once you make this hole it stays there. If you want to remove the photo you need to cover the hole and re-paint it … and so on.
What’s so cool about Kapa®fix is that you can just stick it to the wall with a glue pad and that’s it. Once you want to remove it, just detach the photo from the wall and put it on another spot. No holes to fill or drill :)
Now, am I a passionate Instagram user. So, what occured to me, one day, is that I could print my Instagram images on canvas and apply to to Kapa®fix. I did it! And it looked cool! And this is how my business idea came about. I decided to create an on-line service which would allow visitors to select their Instagram images, get them printed on canvas and applied on Kapa®fix. I know, sometimes we get overwhelmed with some ideas and think of them as so cool, even revolutionary and then later on it turns out that the rest of the world did not share the same opinion. Well, that’s true. But, I just could not imagine doing something for what I am not passionate about. I really love the way it looks on the wall.
All in all, if you would like to take a look at my new project, the name of the site is Koyoo.EU. For a limited time we offer free shipping worldwide.
I hope you will like it.
Have a great day!
