Michael Essek - Selling T-Shirts onlineHello! I’m Michael Essek.

I’m a full-time T-Shirt Seller, Illustrator and Designer from the UK.

In the summer of 2013 I began producing designs for T-Shirts, and uploading them to sites like Redbubble & Society6. Shortly after this I began selling through my ‘own-brand’ t-shirt website.

I have had designs featured on TeeFury, BustedTees, ShirtPunch and other popular T-Shirt sites.

By the end of the first year my profits from such sites were averaging a minimum of $1000/month. After 3 years my earnings are around $7000/month. This income is almost entirely passive, required very little upfront financial investment, and relies on no paid marketing. I don’t print T-Shirts myself and I don’t handle stock.

Michael Essek T-Shirt Income (My T-Shirt earnings since 2013 – as of midway through September 2016. The tall blue line – August 2016 – represents just over $13k in profit).

I believe that anyone with competent design abilities can achieve similar (if not much better) results within a similar timeframe, thanks to the ever-increasing methods for creative individuals to make money online.

All you need is the ability to create designs (or commission them), some good ideas, a willingness to learn, and dedication.

This blog is a place for me to share what I have learned (and continue to learn) about generating and growing passive income from creative work. I believe the advice I share will help you to start making money from your designs – or to increase your earnings if you are already selling your artwork online.
