About This Class

Welcome to this introductory course on selling artwork on redbubble.com.

In this free course, we will cover the basics of getting your artwork up on Redbubble.

This course will provide the information you need to get started, customize your account & profile, upload and organize your artwork, and start making sales. Like my other courses, I will guide you through the process as quickly and efficiently as I can. The process is simple, but many people may go a year on redbubble before using some of these features.

I wanted to make this quick class to get people excited about selling art. I didn’t go in depth on strategies like I do in my other courses purposefully to save your time. We do not go over journals or calendars here. I plan on making another course about making a lot of sales / money on redbubble, but also wanted to offer a free course for those who may not be interested in maximizing profit, just getting their art online. Please follow me to be updated about that course and more courses on selling your art online

All you need to get started is your artwork in a .PNG or .JPG format and an internet connection!!

Check out the Facebook group Make Money As An Artist Online to connect with myself and other artists, share your page, ask questions, etc!!

Live in Love

Douglas Butner, who designs under the name Douglas Fresh or Sir Douglas Fresh,​ is passionate about business, design and the web. Douglas has over 6 years experience as a hobbyist web developer, and over 2 years as a professional designer. Douglas is proud to call himself a geek, and loves learning new skills.

Douglas has a Bachelor's degree from Frostburg State University concentrating in marketing, and sells his designs on products around the world daily. Currently he runs several designer shops including Sir Douglas Fresh and Fresh Thread Shop. Douglas joined Udemy to inspire others to fall in love with design as he has. In the future, Douglas hopes to help artists by providing a platform to sell reproduction rights to their art.

My Qualifications and Works

Business Qualifications

I have always been fascinated with business and marketing, and made this my academic pursuit. While attending Frostburg State University for business with a concentration in marketing, I started a successful t-shirt design business. After graduating FSU with high honors in 2014, I started an LLC for my current web project, the Current X Change. I am particularly interested in branding and online marketing, and hope to share my knowledge with hungry entrepreneurs worldwide.

Design Career

I am an active graphic designer with a variety of skills and disciplines. Besides designing vector art for my t-shirt designs, I do photomanipulations in photoshop, and create fractal art using algorithmic software. I sell designs on t-shirts, stickers, canvas, leggings, and a variety of other products. Over the past two years I have sold over 5,000 products made with my designs, without spending a dime on advertising.

Web Work

As a high school sophmore, I developed a social network called Myhs[.]us (now retired). I learned PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, and CSS from books, and became quickly obsessed with the web. As a senior in high school, I developed Blurba[.]com (also retired), a site that used AJAX, allowing all interactions to take place in real time without refreshing the browser. Currently, I run a handful of sites related to my art, and am working on a platform called the Current X Change that will allow users to share and sell their digital art. While I don't teach any courses on web development, my experience in web development gives me a more in-depth understanding of online marketing.
