We’re Adding Artist Prints and Posters to Our Japan Store

We’ve had an Amazon store for several years with monthly sales of artist posters and prints. Now, Amazon is allowing us to list our art prints and posters in their Japan Amazon store.

We have to list each item one at a time, and it takes 24 hours before buyers can purchase the items. But we’re excited to see how our sales will increase by offering our best selling items to buyers in Japan.

Packing and Shipping Limited Edition Jimi Hendrix Giclee Canvas Art to Buyer

Jimi Hendrix & His 1969 Corvette Stingray 20 x 13 inch stretch canvas Giclee printed –buy on Amazon.com here.

Once the order came in, artist Chris Osborne had this Jimi Hendrix Giclee canvas art print custom printed, stretched and varnished, to ship to the Amazon buyer. She snapped iPhone photos as she packaged the artwork for shipping.

 She wanted to package the canvas print with care– “I start with foam core larger than the piece then attach a margin of foam core strips around the edges.  Add an extra layer on the outside of cardboard.  Finish with lots of final packing tape around the outside edges,” Chris Osborne says. “Done!  Phew! I spent one and one-half hours carefully packing the limited edition artwork.”

“P.S. the shine on the print in the second photo is the plastic wrapping around the print.”

Feature Articles on Artists: How To Get Your Art Featured

blogCreativebutton

Artist Marketing Resources announced the launch of the new ArtWorld Community magazine last week, with Marie Kazalia and Keith McFarlane as co-editors. The first week, both Keith and I have received requests from several artists wishing to be featured in articles.

With all the interest, I’ve begun looking at articles I’ve written on artists and published 3 and 4 years ago–many published in the Yahoo! contributor network, by Technorati News, and on the VASA New York blog, as well as this blog.  One of these early articles I wrote on  R. WEIS – titled Compositions of Manipulated Sound ( read it here) with the artist sending me his sound art CDs so that I could listen to his work. I don’t recall which came first, but I wrote a second article on a Cleveland based Artist Who Uses Sound Chris Kulcar here, with lots of videos of this young artist’s performances included in the article.

My article on painter Chris Osborne’s  Stars and Cars series, including Jimi Hendrix with His Corvette Stingray, Paul Newman with His Racing Datsun, Steve McQueen and the Bullit Mustang here, brought interest due to the subject matter of vintage cars and celebrities depicted in the paintings.

I also wrote a timely article on the efforts of the Artist Power Bank in Tokyo along with American artist Alicia Bay Laurel’s Fund-Raising for Japan’s earthquake disaster relief here. Alicia Bay Laurel’s success goes back to the 1960’s with the publication of her artist book still in print and available today and popular in Japan.

When I wrote my article on Canadian Artist in Scotland – Trevor Jones here, I learned about his research into color and sound theory and his use of music in his art. (Trevor also sent me two of his drawings as gifts!).

I wrote and published the first article on photographic artist Ventiko (here) who has since been feature in print in Interview Magazine!  Ventiko is an extraordinary photographic artist who creates images that look like Renaissance oil paintings.

These are just a select few early articles on artists featured on Artist Marketing Resources. At least one of these artists recently contacted me requesting that I write a new article on his latest work for the ArtWorld Community magazine.

As editor, I am seeking complete articles with images, ready to publish. As feature writer, I offer options to artists here.

More recently, Artist Marketing Resources has featured articles on a wide variety of painters, from Paul Rooms in New York, to Texas cowboy artist J.R. Smith, as well as Jay Burton’s sensual photographic art (here)– just to name a few.

A Painting Commission That Brought Great Joy!

Chris Osborne #3

Along with the picture Chris Osborne wrote:
A treasured memory… at the Brubeck home when daughter Catherine and her husband Arne unveiled my painting to Dave & Iola. Subject: Dave & Iola and the Quartet with the family car (Kaiser) of the 1950’s that Dave had told me about. They got such a kick out of the painting!
My heart goes out to this sweet, sweet family. My thanks to Patricia Bolgosano for her great photos of that day.
Artist Chris Osborne (blond at far right in photo above) has built her painting career painting celebrities and the vintage automobiles that they owned.

Our Amazon Store 1st Anniversary

So far we’ve sold two of Marta’s paintings on canvas, and have two more paintings by Marta still available. You can view the listings for the paintings here and here.
