My first sale!!!

Caroline Smith @carolinepixels

Woke up this morning to my very first sale.... ever!! It looks as if they came from Product Hunt. I put up a little launch post yesterday to see if it would drive any traffic.... so it seems to have worked.

It might only be £3 but it feels great!!

    Congratulations!

    How do you deal with copyright? Is it allowed to sell GoT-related assets?

    1. 1

      In my haste I didn't think about any copyright issues which is probably a very bad idea. I assumed its within the "fan art " realm however I do use imagery which is closely associated to the TV show. Going forward I would be more careful.

      Very much so. It's a little validation that I can actually create something that someone wants. Confidence boost mostly. I've much bigger ideas for products so this was just that start I needed.
