Well, it took me the better part of a year to cajole my best friend Masaki (AKA Max) into the merits of setting up an etsy site for his artwork.
I struggled with the etsy staff because they did not want to allow me to do this. But after seeing other stores doing the exact same kind of thing (i.e. one person makes the art, another makes the store) I decided to just do it.
Finally today I got the store up and running, and listed nine of their pieces of art. They have hundreds, and pretty much do everything on a custom order basis, but I convinced them to lend me some cheaper, and medium-priced pieces of their art to start with.
Please feel free to visit and link to "WashiUrushi" on Etsy, or maybe you can copy and paste this link: http://www.washiurushi.etsy.com.
If you have any suggestions as to where I might be able to get their site a "shout out", or any other advice, please do let me know! Thanks for your support.
I love you!
