Hi everyone! I want to thank all of your for your patience during the past few I am back up and running! I hope everyone is doing well! I am excited to share this shop and an awesome giveaway! As an Etsy seller, I learned quickly that it is very important for your shop to look clean and professional. PokedYourEyeOut is here to help you with that! In addition to beautiful fine art prints, the shop has a number of awesome shop packages that can get you off to a great start, or just help you to update the look of your shop. Here are some of my favorite items from PokedYourEyeOut:
Art Print-Illustration-Sasquatch VS Octopus (I don't even know what to say. This is one of the most awesome things I have ever seen!)
Giclee-Urbania Series-Episode Seven (I love this. It's eerily beautiful.) 
Shop Header/Branding Package-Exclusive-Whale (This is so cute. I wish it fit with my shop because I would use it!
In the artist's own words...
1. The address of your Etsy shop:
2. Description of what you make: I design and create premade and custom branding packages for sellers to use in their Etsy shop. I am also more than happy to design custom headers, avatars, logos and ads.
3. Your favorite creation: My favorite package is always my most recent one, of course, but I like this one a lot: I have been taking photographs of flowers and carry my camera with me everywhere I go. I love manipulating the photos and adding many layers of watercolour, scratches...whatever makes the image come alive.
4. How you learned your craft: I am a graphic designer by trade, though I have a degree in Fine Art. Prior to my career as a designer, I had been selling my paintings internationally for years. I made the switch to graphic design because I needed a more predictable income, but also because it was the perfect fit for me. I love typography and have almost always included it in my painted and installation work. The natural progression of that was graphic design.
5. Years you have been creating: I have five years of professional design and 20 years of fine art and illustration experience.
6. Item you would like to give away: I would like to give away the 'standard' package of the winner's choice. There are several to choose from. The winner will need to scroll through my shop and choose from the numerous packages listed. The standard packages include:
760 x 100 Etsy shop header
75 x 75 Etsy avatar (two versions: regular and 'sale')
500 x 500 "custom listing" image
500 x 500 "thank you" image
All items will be customized with the winner's Etsy shop name in the shown font face.
