Trendy Beetles

I’ve been on Tumblr a lot lately, mostly posting images to draw people to my Etsy shop where I’ve been selling digital images for a few years. It hasn’t really increased sales yet, but I don’t mind because I am learning a lot about what is trending. The first image to go ‘viral’ was a dictionary illustration of gemstones, which I posted on a blog here awhile ago. I asked my daughter why precious stones would be so popular, and she said the young, hip crowd on Tumblr likes crystals and gems. Hmm…I continued posting the vintage images that I like, without much activity, until I put up the following illustrations recently.  Their popularity surpassed the gemstones! So my readers can have their finger on the pulse of what is trending, here you go, beetles are trending…841_beetles_7x10 1105_cleoptera1 1106_coleoptera2 1107_coleotera3

About redbudart

I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, just outside of Portland, Oregon. My usual interests are cooking, wine, horticulture, art, and old books, but lately I've been obsessed with saving for a piece of land, so I can practice sustainability and learn to live as close to the land as possible, and then help others to do the same. To relax I listen to Dharma talks. Namaste!
