 FEEDBACK FROM ARTISTS:

It’s great getting unsolicited feedback about our resources and services, such as in a tweet that we received from artist Joyce Dade regarding the $39.95 price of our International Art Galleries Directory. Joyce tweeted to us @TransArtGuide “A very decent price for such an art directory.  Paid $100 years ago for Italian version. I forget the name of publisher.”

Artist Alexis Avlamis, an artist curated into the Drawing Center New York City and featured on the Art21 interview blog wrote to us, in part:

“About two months ago, I stumbled upon your websıte and bought both the Transmedıa Artıst Guıde to Makıng Artıst Submıssıons and the Internatıonal Art Gallery Dırectory Share Lıst. I found them very professıonal, well wrıtten, ınformatıve and eye openıng, especıally when ıt comes to untanglıng the mysterıes and meshes of the art world.”

This week an artist in Europe wrote in an email:

“Hi Marie, I just wanted to say thanks for doing a good job…” an except from an email we received after our submission got this artist a much-needed magazine feature, a requirement to obtain an artist via to the USA. We are also assisting this artist in completing the USA Artist Visa application.

Plus, last week we received a thank-you gift of an original art piece in the mail from an artist we work with!

Artist Marketing Resources would like to thank all the artists who sent such positive feedback. We’d like to make this a regular monthly feature on our blog. So if you talk about us online, please let us know, and you could get mentioned along with an image and link to your site.

Artists: Would You Want Your Art Printed on Condoms?

 

blogCOndomartwei_ming_ming__113

 

We always have an eye out for new ways manufacturers use art printed on their products and this one stood out (or up?) as hard to miss (pun intended). A site new to us–that we discovered when they began following us on Twitter– the Bounty Hunter offers up contests and competitions. While the winner of the art printed on condoms prize will get $1000 US Dollars, artists may wish to think through such contests. Is this art on condoms project a one-off novelty or a new trend? Will art on condoms become standard, much like art on skateboards? If soon all condoms will have art printed on them, then an art licensing royalty contract could net any artist much more than the prize amount. Or perhaps winning the prize would be a good start?

If you decide that you’d rather have an art licensing contract and receive regular royalty payments, then how do you go about finding those companies that license art from artists?

Artist Marketing Resources maintains e-lists of the best opportunities for artists here.  Find our Art Licensing resources for artists here.

You may be wondering how to make your approach to art licensing companies and artist agents with your art?

We also offer our guide to artists that includes cover letters that you can use. Get the Transmedia Artist Guide to Making Artist Submissions ebook here.

Or perhaps you would like to try simpler print-on-demand sales of your art as prints on paper or canvas or printed on products. Then get our Art Print Sales Sites + Other Print Resources here.

Artists, Do You Need a *How To* Guide for Making Submissions?

There are a lot of *How To* titles around, and more and more for visual artists. From the unrealistically comprehensive How to Make A Living As an Artist –such titles tend to be autobiographical but marketed as a How To guide– to the more specific niche market selling guides, such as, How To Make Money Selling At Art Fairs How to Make Money Selling Your Art on Ebay , and Digicamcash–Use Your Camera and submit your photos online for money.

Hobbyists may gain insights from reading such publications. But usually the titles are deceptively simple and many, many hours of effort and cash expenditures are required to succeed at selling on ebay, selling your photos online for money, selling at art fairs, and making a living as an artist.

Then there are print books and ebooks that are purely theoretical (no dirty money talk) containing advice from art professionals on how to set up blogs, and how to write artist statements, and how to buyer a printer and print your own giclees, and how not to approach galleries, also containing some good, if broad, advice. (You can sit around and talk about this sort of stuff for ever, but unless action is taken it all just remains in your head unproven/ untested by you).

My ebook, the  Transmedia Artist Guide to Making Artist Submissions, includes cover letters that artists can adapt for their own use, and lots of specific tips and how to advice on such things as, *must use words*, when taking action and making art submissions to museum curators, gallerists, art licensing companies, potential art sponsors, corporate art consultants, interior designers, art magazine editors, art poster companies, book jacket publishers.

Many artists lack the confidence to write letters and make submissions to key people in positions to help them in taking the next step up in their art careers. Get started with my proven letter layouts and wording and adapt them to your own use to gain experience making submissions. I include a letter I used (real names removed) to obtain a contract for an artist with a top art licensing company, a letter I used to obtain overseas contracts with art consultants for international giclee sales, and letters I used to obtain solo exhibitions and gallery representation for artists, letters requesting sponsorship and in-kind donations of materials and services for art exhibitions. From working with artists I know that letter writing is one of the big stops when it comes to moving forward. So let me provide the letters for you to use in my forthcoming ebook.

My ebook, the Transmedia Guide to Making Artist Submissions will be available in two weeks.
