I’ve been telling artists for years to submit their work! So I felt validated by a great master when I read this quote–
“Think up ideas for stories, go out and shoot them, and then send them in to the magazines. I was lucky; I figured that out when I was young.” Stanley Kubrick
This great, important and successful filmmaker started out as a photographer and unknown. He got his start by submitting his work and getting it into magazine.
This applies to all artists working in all materials and styles — you should be submitting your work to appropriate art magazines, art consultants, art galleries, interior designers, and art licensing companies.
I wrote and published an e-book guide to help artists make submissions (available here) and e-lists of resources to help artists quickly and easily find the best places submit their work. I continue to compile my extensive and growing e-list of art and design magazines where you can submit your work for a feature (available here), and an e-list of links to over 5,000 USA and international art galleries (here), an e-list of art consultants (here) and art licensing companies (here). Plus specialized e-lists of print sales sites (here) and photography agents and resources (here).
