How long have you been selling online? What got you started? 
I'm very new to the online business community - I launched my store Rubix Apparel only 4 weeks ago! I've been planning to do it for a long time, but getting caught up in the day job. Then I decided that 2016 would be the year to stop delaying! I'm only just starting to make some sales, and I know that it won't be easy to make Rubix successful. But it's so so satisfying when somebody loves one of your designs enough to want to buy or wear it that it's worth all the effort, even with only a few sales so far. And I really love the feeling that I'm creating something that will touch the lives of loads of different people around the world - I've already dispatched orders to Australia and Israel!

What's your favorite thing to draw/make/create?

I have been selling online for four solid years now. My shop was created out of need and love. My daughter and I were displaced due to domestic violence, and I was forced to start my life over again. I am a graphic designer, but the hours I needed to work would not allow me to be there for my daughter. After trying very hard to juggle a 9-5 as well as be a mother and a father, I decided something had to change. It was not working. I started working as a virtual assistant, but my daughter wasn't in school yet and trying to explain to a three year old she needed to be quiet for hours is impossible. I began to evaluate myself. I needed to find something I could do at home, and I wanted it to be something I loved. I love crafting, and I like to make things that put smiles on people's faces. I started very small, selling only to friends, and then my friends…

The Live Action Trailer for Dusk!

Recently I did something I've never done before: I acted. I played Eve, the main character in the Dusk comic series by David Doub. Contrary to my terror at the idea of doing it, it was a hell of a lot of fun. I got to move out of my comfort zone and do it with some of my best creative friends. I couldn't have asked for a more awesome experience, and I hope that you guys will check out the trailer and maybe visit Dusk Comics to shop their titles.
