Etsy favs: Toonpoot

I hope you don't mind a bit of promotion, I have a very good excuse, it's for my beloved boyfriend.

He started painting recently under the name Toonpoot. And ever since I've been nagging him to open up an Etsy shop. He still has his doubts but decided to give it a try and start off with a limited edition print.

So what do you think? Was I wrong to force him onto Etsy or would you buy this?

(Any comments/opinions on his paintings would also be very appreciated. He's still a bit insecure about his work...)

I think they're great (I had a look at Patstap too). I really like the stylised look and modern vibe I get from them.

You weren't wrong to encourage him but be warned - Etsy can be a bit soul destroying for artists. The problem is you only have so many walls (and colour schemes) on which to put art.

People may like the art but are not able to 'fit it' in their homes - I hope that makes sense. Best of luck to him - he's got talent.
