Hi! I’m Kristina “Pen” Winter, a Hamburg/Germany based artist.

I’m a freelancer and always wanted to do more with my artworks and ideas, and this little shop was born from this dream.

I love designing and creating anything from happy to dark themes, monochrome or colourful and everything in between. You will also find a variety of items and merch in my shop that range from prints to sculptures, or helpful little design tools that I produce at my workspace.
I occasionally do fanart or inspired works, but my main focus is on original works.

If you want to see more of my illustrations, animations and general freelancer side,
you can check out my art portfolio at pen-winter.com!

F.A.Q. – Shop Info

Q: Can I buy wholesale quantities?
A: I generally don’t sell in wholesale quantities, as I only order my printed merch in small quantities to begin with. But I’m not opposed to the idea. Feel free to contact me if you want to discuss the matter.
Q: Is your packaging eco friendly?
A: I aim to be as eco friendly as possible with my small business. Right now I’m replacing everything of my plastic packaging that is left over. I also am a little bit of a packaging hoarder, meaning I keep every packaging I get sent from my private orders and re-use it if suitable.
Generally my packaging will mostly consist of cardboard boxes or envelopes, with paper tissue for stuffing, compostable cellophane or paper bags, and glass fibre reinforced kraft paper tape for sealing.
Depending on the fragility of the item I will have to resort to bubble wrapping or similar stuffing to ensure save shipping.

On a side note, in Germany we have a Dual System, meaning business owners have to license packing material and pay a recycling fee.
You may also be interested to know, that the plastic I use for 3D prints (PLA) is a thermoplastic polyester based on renewable recourses and is biodegradable under industrial composting conditions.

Q: Can you draw me XYZ, or make a custom item for me?
A: I take commissions. To get more info please have a look at my art portfolio.
We can arrange to get you a custom item printed with the commission, but be warned that printing costs for single items are usually quite high, as low or single quantities aren’t feasible for manufacturers.
Q: What programs and/or tools are you using?
A: For digital artwork I use Clip Studio Paint, Affinity Design and Photoshop on an iMac with a Wacom cintiq13HD.
For 3D it’s a mix of Tinkercad, SketchUp and ZBrush. Hardware: Ender 3.
Q: I didn't receive an order confirmation email, or a shipping email with tracking.
A: The order confirmation email is sent out after an order was placed, please check your spam folder in case it landed there.
Shipping confirmation will be sent within the processing time, which is between 1-3 business days. Depending on order volume I bring my orders to the postal office on Mondays and Thursdays.
Made to order or custom items may require a longer processing time. How long will be stated in the item description.

If a shipping method with tracking was used; the shipment confirmation email also displays the tracking number and a link to the providing tracking service. If you have trouble with your tracking number, don’t hesitate to email me.
