The Story Behind Art by INKY

How did Art by INKY come to be?

Well, as far as my shop name goes, there’s actually a story behind it.

First, the obvious, I’m a digital artist and sell all of my original artwork as prints and other items. So the “art by” comes into play there.

I tried other variations, but this seemed the most straight forward and I didn’t want to limit what I made to something specific like illustration or design.

“INKY” however, is an alias that was formed out of an old online username and a joke.

Years ago when I used Facebook, there was a challenge between friends to change your middle name to a food. Mine became biscuits and I stuck with that name elsewhere online with the word inky before it.

The reason being is that I like the inking/ line art process of art. It’s a tedious pain, but it’s the most rewarding part because that’s the foundation of your piece. Once that’s in place then the rest comes pretty easy.

I used “inky_biscuits” as my online identity for years, but others would call me inky for short, especially when I used to stream my artwork on Twitch.

Over time, I wanted to rebrand myself and push myself out of the art as a hobby lane. I wanted to cultivate what my art can be and represents.

Plus, there’s actually a small art studio/ shop in the UK called inky biscuits and I wanted to prevent future issues.

I could have used my real name, but this had more meaning to me and to those who have supported me over the years.

Who am I?

My real name is Aleesha Lindstrom and I’m a digital artist, designer and illustrator currently residing in Connecticut.

Ever since I was young, I have always enjoyed creating art.

Professionally, I’ve been involved in the creative field since 2016 and received my B.F.A. in Digital Media and Design at the University of Connecticut.

I’ve held creative positions in fields such as, marketing, graphic design and even dabbled in freelancing, but I never had thought I would catch the entrepreneurial bug.

Turning My Dreams into a Reality

Even though many artists seek an independent route from the beginning, I honestly didn’t believe I had the focus to do my own thing. Plus, having a steady stream of income seemed like a much more viable option to start with.

It wasn’t until 2020 that I had considered branching out on my own and opening up my own independent art shop.

While I was lucky enough to hold down a stable job during the global crisis, it sort of hit me that nothing is truely stable and anything at anytime can happen out of our control.

The instability and uncertainty of the times motivated me to pursue something outside of my comfort realm- to sell my artwork and become my own boss.

So, I spent the majority of 2020 honing my craft and preparing for the grand opening. I never realized the amount of planning, investing and logistics that go into starting up a business. I wanted to be sure everything was in order before posting my first listing!

Once I launched in mid May of 2021, it felt surreal. I plan to keep expanding and adding new products to my inventory as I see fit.

To my customers, friends and family, thank you for supporting me and joining me on this journey.

Frequently asked questions
When will I receive my item?

I use USPS to fulfill all of my online orders.

Each of my orders will include a tracking number, so you’ll be able to see where your order is and when it will arrive.

I use First Class Package Mail.

*COVID-19 Impact*

While I can promise to send out all orders in a timely manner (1-3 business days after receiving your purchase), I cannot guarantee your shipment will arrive when expected at this time. There have been major shipping delays across the country due to the pandemic, high online retail demand, and understaffed facilities.

I appreciate your understanding and will do my best to facilitate and communicate with you during this time.

How are your products shipped?

I care greatly about my impact on the environment and therefore, all of my orders are shipped with recyclable, biodegradable and environmentally friendly materials purchased through EcoEnclose and other small vendors.

This ensures your product will arrive safely, while also having less of an impact on the environment.

Please kindly reuse or recycle the shipping materials included in your purchase.

My item is damaged or in poor quality, what can I do?

Any items received damaged or in poor quality are eligible for a replacement.

Simply contact me with an image to let me know what happened, and I will send you a new product free of charge.

Sale items are not eligible for a replacement.

I want you to be happy with your purchase, please contact me if you are not 100 percent satisfied.

Can I substitute stickers from different listings in your bundle deals?

I offer bundle deals on each of my stickers if you purchase more than one in that listing.

However, I have been asked about substitutions to include stickers from different listings.

For example, I offer a 4 for $16 bundle deal on certain stickers. That bundle deal will only apply to the listing you are purchasing from, but say you wanted 4 stickers and only 2 from that listing and 2 from another one, just simply message me and I can create a custom order for you.

You are allowed to mix and match as long as the prices are of equal or lesser value.

Custom orders are available for my stickers only.
