I'm so looking forward to 2018. I think this is going to be a big year for Lotti Brown Designs.
I've been working behind the scenes a lot on the website in the final months of 2017, and doing lots of planning and organising (there's even been spreadsheets)...
In 2018 I'm introducing some really exciting new additions to my pet portrait packages...
I've selected some really beautiful frames and my custom pet portraits will come ready-framed in a choice of three elegant frames, so that you'll be able to get them ready to hang and you don't have to wait to see your new artwork up on your wall... it's perfect to save you the time and trouble to search for a suitable frame and really lovely to gift to someone special so it's all ready to put up straight away.
You will also be able to get my art prints beautifully framed from my online store. Mounted prints (unframed) and loose prints (delivered rolled in a tube) will also be available, if you prefer to choose your own frame.
What's more, custom pet portrait customers will also receive my beautiful original sketch drawing of their pet as part of the package, together with a high-resolution digital image of the final artwork to use as a screensaver or to print onto cushion covers, phone-cases, bags, mugs etc.
I'm also busy planning a new special gift for my subscribers (for both new and existing subscribers) - and I'm also going to have my own online store as part of this website - both probably coming in the Spring.
In addition, I'm currently in the middle of creating a new art collection inspired by nature, with wildlife creatures such as a hare, rabbit, badger, fox and more - which will be out later in 2018.
I'm very excited and trying not to be daunted at the amount of work involved (I'll be doing everything myself, as a micro-business owner). I'll be taking it slow and steady to get it all done.
I do need to let you know that prices are going to go up so that the business can remain sustainable in the long term.
The new prices will be in place, together with the new pet portrait packages, from 1st February for art prints and custom pet portraits.
