Art Licensing and character licensing expert J’Net has her next Free Friday Q&A coming up on May 18th from 9-10:00 AM PDT / Noon-1:00 PM EDT. She will be answering all of the questions you send to her!

If you have never joined her for one of these lively hour-long sessions, I am quite sure you will be pleasantly surprised at how much detailed information J’net can cram into an hour. Just to give you a better idea of what to expect, you can click here and see the valuable questions that have been answered in one of my prior Free Friday Ask J’net Q&A’s. So be ready to take notes and listen for your question(s) to be answered, as well as benefit from the questions of others.

Spread the word, so that those exploring the industry and just starting out can learn more. As many of you have learned, art licensing is a challenging choice and it’s not for all artists.

Language: English
Workshop meets online Sunday Afternoons at 3pm EST (noon PST, 3pm EST, 9 pm CET)–link to register:
The world of photography in the digital world of 21st century innovation is in a state of continual flux.  Emerging technologies that allow photographic imagery without the use of a traditional camera, lens, or subject matter are beginning to have a presence in our mainstream culture.

In this seminar we’ll explore new technologies that are being unveiled through in-seminar discussions, dialogs, and practice.  The history of digital imaging in the post-photographic world will be outlined before embarking upon the use of web cams, cell phones, and virtual worlds for our hands-on image making assignments.

*Students should have access to a computer and photo editing software (preferably, but not necessarily, Adobe Photoshop), Second Life, Mozilla Firefox and Skype.

Social Media e-Tips

Issue #60  Volume #5
From Mari-Lyn Harris

Tip # 101 Use descriptive key words and write about them.

Try to use them in your title of your Blog post, articles or where ever you are posting your content.

Google has changed how they are rank your content..the more fresh, new content that you post the better it will be for you. If you have a website or blog that is only a place to get people’s e-mail information, or a sales page, you will go down to the bottom of the ocean floor. Or if you have a static site with your contact information. Be sure to be active. 2-3x per week, sometimes more. Otherwise Google simply won’t come around as often.
