Your Submission has been Published!

Screen Shot 2013-06-19 at 6.39.35 AM

Yesterday, I woke especially early and checked my email to find – Your Submission has been published!

That was a pleasant surprise but not completely unexpected, since I felt that I had submitted the right artwork to the right venue. (Check my blog here to find out who published my art.)

If you haven’t been submitting your art to publications such as blogs and online magazine and journals, the only trick is in selecting and submitting the right work! It’s really that simple. With more submissions made, you will get to know who is likely to accept what you submit.

To help assist artists, Artist Marketing Resources has compiled a gratis PDF list of Art Magazines, blogs, and other publications. Get it free here.

Artist Marketing Resources Milestone

The Artist Marketing Resources blog launched years before the online *LIKE* system came into existence.

Also, please note that sometimes WordPress misreads your legitimate comments and mistakenly sends them to SPAM. This blog averages 100 spam comments per day, and with one button to *empty all spam*–that I what I do, once or twice per daily. Occasionally, I will see a real comment on the way out with the spam. Sometimes I catch those comments before they delete. I know some good comments have deleted this way. It is upsetting when I see a good comment going out with the bad SPAM. I certainly would like to have those comments on my blog posts and respond to those who left them. One solution is to click *LIKE* on a blog post as well as leave a comment–that way your comment is less likely to end up in the SPAM folder.

Dolls, Masks, Zombies, Devils, Skulls and Day of the Dead Skeletons in the Pastel Paintings of Barbara Rachko

The Space Between, Barbara Rachko

To say that her pastel paintings are skillful is truly an understatement! New York City artist Barbara Rachko has perfected her artistic style working from her large collection of Mexican and Guatemalan folk art – masks, carved wooden animals, papier mâché figures, and toys – to create pastel paintings that combine reality and fantasy and depict personal narratives.

If you are wondering how this artist achieves such fine detail and a photographic quality in her pastel paintings, you can find out more about her techniques by following her blog appropriately named Colored Dust. The artist also share a lot about her art-making on her Facebook page, which you can Like to follow her there.

The multi-talented Barbara is a gifted photographic artist as well, and currently represented by the New York City art gallery HP Garcia.

The Sovereign, Barbara Rachko

False Friends, Barbara Rachko

 

Paranoia, Barbara Rachko

Effigy, Barbara Rachko

I Heart My Art

I Heart my Art is a Tumblr blog accepting submissions of your art. According to their submission guidelines you can send your artwork, or link to your website. I Heart My Art is based in New York City, and is a little different in that it also has a mailing list. There is a sign-up at the top of the blog next to submissions. In a previous blog post, I list  3 other Tumblr blogs that accept submissions.

Share Your Own Art

Art Snapper on Pinterest has a share your own art board where you can add images of your own art to get more visibility for your work.

I’ve also found that there are many Tumblr art blogs that have options for you to either submit your art or upload your art and artist news, announcements or articles along with art images. Add your own art or cross-promote with another artist to mutually share–this is such an easy way to get more exposure. Also, many Tumblr art blogs also have Pinterest pin buttons. Once you add you artist article and image you can pin it to Pinterest.

Here are just a few Tumblr art blogs that accept your contributions of  images and writing–there are many more:

No Ones Nemesis http://noonesnemesis.tumblr.com/submit

A Thousand Words http://a-thousand-words.tumblr.com/submit

Fuck Yeah Expressionism http://fuckyeahexpressionism.tumblr.com/submit 

On the Art Finder site http://www.artfinder.com/about you can build your own art profile, add the link to your website, and connect with art lovers and collectors. An easy way to create a strategic online presence amid art lovers.

I have found that art galleries internationally promote their art publications on the Issuu site, where you can create a free member profile and join one of the groups such as the Art People group that allows members to upload an ebook up to 500 pages. Do you have a digital manuscript of your own artwork? This is a great place to share your own art ebook!
