Zazzle: Give us a brief bio, where you’re from and when you started making art.
Lizabeth: My name is Liza Phoenix, I’m from Seattle, Washington and I’ve worked as a professional craftsperson/designer for many years. I’ve done hand painted t-shirts, hand carved sculpture, beads, art prints, and posters.
Zazzle: What is your inspiration for your designs?
Lizabeth: Love, happiness, sweets, treats, magic, and rainbows.
Zazzle: When you’re not creating art, what are your other hobbies?
Lizabeth: I compile images and information about legendary creatures and fabulous beasts, and I maintain a subject guide to art history.
Zazzle: What’s your favorite style to create?
Lizabeth: Kawaii! A style that originated in Japan around the 1970s and emphasizes the cuteness of objects to the extreme and then a little bit beyond that.
Zazzle: How many hours do you typically spend working on your Zazzle store?
Lizabeth: In my mind I work all day and all night on my Zazzle store and my other websites and projects, but in reality it’s probably only about 8 hours a day.
Zazzle: What has been your favorite design you’ve created, and why?
Lizabeth: My favorites are usually my latest, but maybe some of my all-time favorites are “Pink Albino Narwhal” and “Super Rainbow Space Cake”. Why? Cute! (I hope!)
Zazzle: If Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would you like to see play you?
Lizabeth: Ha ha, Cameron Diaz, but she would need to gain 20 pounds and wear a wig.
Zazzle: Being a newer seller on Zazzle, what are you looking forward to the most?
Lizabeth: Making more money! Also, I have one million ideas that I’m anxious to get out of my mind and onto Zazzle products.
Zazzle: What got you interested in selling your art on Zazzle?
Lizabeth: I was with another POD company and the members there spoke so highly of Zazzle that I decided to give it a try.
Zazzle: What tips can you give someone who is just starting out on Zazzle?
Lizabeth: Put forth a great effort over a long period of time with a confident expectation of success. (Get back to me in a year or two and I’ll let you know if this actually works.)
