A neighbor, who runs every morning, mentioned seeing wild turkeys in a certain area. So I took notice while driving one morning and saw seven wild turkeys in a farmer’s field near some woods. Since then I see wild turkeys everywhere–I’ve even had them in my yard. It’s kind of interesting how we notice things the more we start looking for them and are more open to seeing what others point out to us. Many photographers know that the more they look the more they see to photograph.

All artists who start looking for opportunities for their art–whether it’s for features in art magazines and art blogs, or for the best print sales venues– find many more great opportunities using our resources. Or if you are an artist wishing to connect with art dealers, art consultants and gallerists–our extensive e-lists will save you time narrowing down the best venues for your fine art and photography.

Today and tomorrow we have a Thanksgiving Special–buy one artist resource and get one free.

I shop at a local grocery store that offers Buy-One-Get-One-Free items, and I appreciate that! So I’m making the same offer to artists.

Buy an artist resource in either of our stores here or here then let us know which one you’d us to send you at no cost–use this contact form:

Master Creator Attributes His Success to Learning How to Submit His Work

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).

#artists New Company Launches Site Spring 2015: Art Murals, Art Posters, Art On Canvas

Screen Shot 2015-04-06 at 3.26.00 PM
Cannonwalls, a Canada based company, has a website in beta phase where artists can register now here: http://1479-2443.el-alt.com/

Once you register, you will be able to submit thumbnail images of your art and designs. Upon acceptance you will then upload your large files of your images for both high quality poster art and mural size reproduction.

The official launch of Cannonwalls is a few days away. Cannonwalls will be moving their site to cannonwalls.com upon launch, and they are also working on a mobile friendly version of their site.

If you’re an artist or know of any great designers please send them to the Cannonwalls site and have then throw up as many designs as they want, the more the better, monopolize the site…I would. The more designs thrown on Cannonwalls, the better.

The new site will be focusing on peel and stick vinyl decal posters, high quality 2″ thick wrapped canvas prints and huge vinyl peel and stick wall murals to start, (they say they use the same vinyl material as FatHeads ).  Cannonwalls prints on the latest digital presses and literally sell thousands of units on Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, shop.com, shop.ca, etsy…under their J.P. London brand.

They want this to be a fun and lucrative project for artists and hassle free. They recently put a sales module in place so you can follow sales by design including the payment building. That’s key. It’s fully transparent. All sales numbers by type, money and date will be available to artists on their profile 24-7.

Register now at http://1479-2443.el-alt.com/     On Facebook: facebook.com/cannonwalls

High End Art Licensing: Art on Wood Furniture, Wall Panels

RExRayFurniture

 

If you think of art licensing as wall calendars and greeting cards, then take a look at these high-end wall panels and furniture– featured by the if it’s hip, it’s here design blog–with artist Rex Ray’s designs on them. They’re produced by B + N Industries based in California and New York City. B+N Industries is an innovative designer and manufacturer of products for the retail, architectural and hospitality markets.

Even top New York City art galleries like Bravin Lee and Gagosian have gotten into high-end art licensing with sales in their Gagosian Shop on Madison Avenue of artist pillows, art jewelry, posters, and limited edition  Alexander Calder and Basquiat artworks transferred onto dinner plates. The Gagosian Shop  has nearly sold out of Andy Warhol camouflage designs on wallpaper, and snow skis and skateboards with Keith Haring and Basquiat designs.

Bravin Lee is unique with its Bravin Lee Editions, a series of artist designed hand-knotted limited edition rugs.

Cumulus Studios collection (2008-2013) focuses on outdoor objects that include sculpture editions, textiles and functional art pieces in small editions of 25 and under.

DENY Designs may have #lesserknown artists (about 170) but they have some interesting home decor accessories in Bed and Bath and a Pet Collection of pet beds, food bowls, and bandanas.

If you are an artist looking to get your art licensed, we offer two extensive e-lists of resources– The Art Licensing E-list of art Licensing companies, artist agents and artist representatives and the  Print Market E-list of Physical and online art print sales sites for artists. Print products include prints editions, posters, canvas prints, art toys, art stickers, wall decals, murals, postcards, printed t-shirts, clothing, bags, cases, pillows, fabric, wallpaper, rugs, deck chairs, chairs, mugs, beer bottles, mixed media, limited edition ceramics, wall flags, metal posters and more.

For photographic artists, we have an extensive e-list of international photography representatives and photographer agents, photography print sales sites and much more.

Opportunities for #Artists wishing to break into the Asian market

blogDotN

Artists around the world regularly contact Artist Marketing Resources for details on getting their work into the growing Asian art market. Often these artists target Tokyo Japan as their point of entry. There are other cities to consider–Singapore, Manila, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Taipei and Seoul.

Dot.N is a Seoul, Republic of Korea (aka South Korea) based online gallery and arts project planning site scheduled to launch on April 1st 2015.

They’ve invited more than 5000 artists internationally to register on the Dot.N site on April 1st and upload their art images.

Jeonghyun Lee of the Dot.N Arts Planning company said, ” Up to this point, the system looks similar to existing sites such as Behance.” Dot.N wants to establish an “artists’ online archive on a grand scale.”

When artists all over the world sign-up to the Dot.N website, they will be exhibiting and sharing their artworks with art collectors and the art buying public, as well as business enterprises, banks, hospitals, advertising agencies and web agencies who will have options to buy and use (license) artists’ digital art images. This is one way Dot.N will generate additional income for their artists.

The Dot.N Arts Planning company will advertise and promote the availability of both the digital images and the original artworks on their new 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.
