My new stores for A Bitter Pill to Swallow

I've been keeping it under wraps for several months now, but I have two new stores, one on Zazzle and one on Society6. I created all kinds of products with my cover art for A Bitter Pill to Swallow. Whether you're nostalgic for the early 90s or weren't around to remember them, if you like my cover art, you'll enjoy them.

It's funny, I used to sell sunglasses at Nordstrom, and now I'm designing them!

My favorite pieces to design were the allover print shirts. It was pretty easy to make them on the Zazzle website.

And it's pretty amazing what I was able to do with my images once I uploaded them to Society6. 

Now there is even a Bitter Pill shower curtain.

Of course, my main reason for creating the Society6 store was to sell prints of my cover art designs.

If you like what you see here, please visit both sites so you can see everything I'm selling. Both Society6 and Zazzle offer coupon codes on a regular basis, so keep an eye out for them. I will give you the links again so you don't have to scroll up:

My thoughts on the new Barbies

Since no one contacted me to find out my opinion on the newest development in fashion dolls, I will just write about it here. It's nice to see that Mattel is now making Barbie dolls in a variety of shapes and sizes. It took them long enough! They're probably only doing this because their sales have been abysmal in recent years. They have struggled to reinvent themselves. And finally, after years of petitions for plus-sized Barbies and criticism for the unrealistically proportioned dolls, they're making an effort. I think it's a step in the right direction. It's too bad they weren't around when I was taking pictures for The Doll Project. They would have been perfect for the You Are Beautiful,Too! poster. But at least I can get a few for my collection. I know exactly what I want for my birthday. I suppose some things never change. 

My three favorites.

A footnote:
As a collector, I think it will be interesting to see if they make enough clothes for the curvy dolls. Sad to think they will have the same issues real curvy women face when it comes to finding nice clothes that fit. Hopefully some of the talented miniature couturiers on Etsy will create beautiful doll clothes to fit them.
