I am getting carried away into the land of macro photography. I really do not know what I am doing as far as the technical nuances of this art form. I don't want to have to carry around a tripod to take pictures but I have noticed that it is very easy to shake the camera when you become so close up. Then there are issues of lighting. Back in the day when I learned how to work a 35mm camera I managed to take pictures intuitively without fully understanding the mechanics. With digital cameras it seems that it's not so simple. I have been searching online for different resources and perhaps video tutorials. The only trouble with this newfound hobby is it becomes all-encompassing. I am always creating art thinking in terms of what can I license it to. I am creating pictures just for fun, with no commercial purpose in mind. For more from my new hobby please visit my Flickr page.
You have reached a blog that has "Zip", that's me Sue Zipkin. This is the place where I will share my latest design news and other hopefully interesting stuff. I am a mom, wife, friend, artist, designer,illustrator, cook, and sometimes cleaner. I have been designing artwork for products for thousands of years ( more like 2 1/2 decades ). I am blessed to be able to share my art with the world and I thank everyone who has been kind enough to purchase products with my designs on them. I hope to inspire others to pursue their dreams .

Sue Zipkin is not a manufacturer.
I am an artist who licenses reproduction rights of my art to manufacturers who then produce the art on their products. All questions or concerns about the actual product and wholesale inquires need to be directed to those manufacturers.
Creating handmade items
I encourage those creating handmade sewing projects from my fabric to sell on the web, craft shows and the like. I love handmade items. However, if you are a person planning to mass produce products using my designs (whether fabrics or incorporating any of my other artwork or products) that would require a license from me. Please contact me direct.
Thanks, Sue Zipkin
