Use Applewatch Mockup Templates to Show Your Art Products

 

MineEbookScenery Watermarked Preview Apple Watch 42mm - 339 - 4-29-15, 4-16 PM

 

There are many mockup products, aka scene generators, that artists may find useful–such as poster mockups, greeting card mockups, product mockups for showing your art on various products and on a variety of items. Mockups may be used in presentations, on your website, and in your marketing and promotions. I’m learning more about what mockups are readily available. As I find useful mockup, I will be reviewing and sharing  them in future articles.

Today, I’m sharing Get Scenery because the site is super easy to use. Get Scenery mockups allow you to test-out your images before purchasing. With their free watermarked mockups, like I’m using here, I am able to demonstrate how artists can easily read my ebook on the go.

So I’m able work on and try out a variety promotional plans and ideas before deciding on which mockups to actually purchase. Purchased versions do not have watermarks.

To try out the watermarked mockups, go to the Get Scenery site, download the mockups and then with one click you add your own photo to try in each–as I have here. Trying these have given me new ideas and a better understanding of how I might use these mockups in my product promotions.

 Get Scenery mockups have all the latest devices, such as the new Apple Watch, for you to use in your marketing.

For instance, if you have a catalog or portfolio of your fine art photography prints or a series of fine art prints that you’d like Art Consultants and Interior Designers to know about. You could use a mockup of an iPad or iPhone on your website to quickly show how easy it is for an Art Consultant or Interior Designer to view your prints while they are on-sight in the space where the prints will hang.

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.

USA, Canada, Asia: Art Dealer Renowned For Print Editions

Patrick Painter is an American art dealer who in 1991 began Patrick Painter Editions in Vancouver, Canada and Hong Kong. He is also the owner of Patrick Painter Inc., which he opened in 1997, that includes two art galleries in Santa Monica, California.

Last month, Patrick Painter launched his Facebook fan page as a Public Personality–find it here.

Early in his career, Patrick Painter was mentored by famed art dealer Leo Castelli and curator Walter Hopps.  According to Wikipedia,…” Patrick Painter Editions was established in a depressed market, [yet] he managed to build his business upon the success he had turning editions. Fine art prints, or multiple editions, were looked down upon at the time by many critics and collectors; Painter created a unique approach to the market. In 1996, 20 galleries worldwide had shows of exclusively Patrick Painter Editions.

Open Call–Reviewing Art to List For Sale On Amazon

 

Many things have changed on A-mazon.com over the years. A couple of years before art galleries expanded to selling art on Amazon, I opened the Transmedia Artist A-mazon Pro Store in July of 2011. I’ve sold dozens of prints on paper and canvas, paintings, and limited edition artist posters in my A-mazon store.  

View the Transmedia Artist A-mazon Pro Store here.

Now I’d like to revitalize the inventory of my A-mazon store by adding 100-200 more artworks.

I’m especially interested in adding artwork multiples–print editions on paper and canvas and artist’s posters. I’d also like to try some hand-painted limited edition scarves, accessories, and clothing, as well as select one-of-kind handmade items.

Send the link to your website or online portfolio for review to: mariekazalia@gmail.com

There is no fee unless your work is accepted into the Transmedia Artist Amazon store.

Once accepted you will be expected to pay a one-time fee of $10USD to cover your first five listings in the store. If you want to list ten items pay $20, fifteen items pay $30 etc. Note: One print edition is one listing (for possible multiples sales from that one listing). This token fee helps us all stay committed!

Artists provide retail prices and calculate shipping expenses for each art item listing (A-mazon allows$ 4.49 shipping per listing so that an increase in retail price is necessary to cover shipping costs). Buyers pays $4.49 shipping fee. Artists must provide one or more high-resolution jpeg image of each item(including detail views) to go on each Amazon listing.

Artists are notified when a buyers pays for an order on A-mazon and then has 3-5 business day to ship the sold item (with tracking number) sent directly to the buyer . If artists are unavailable the order may be cancelled. (I want to sign on artists who are attentive to their email and reply quickly!)

Artists receive paymen-t of 60% for each sold item 30 days after tracking confirmation verifies that the buyer has received the shipped item.  A-mazon policy allows buyers 30 days to return items.

Most common reasons for non-acceptance:

  1. item/items not suited to A-mazon sales
  2. photographs of item or items do not meet A-mazon standards

Big Ink Open Call Collaborative Large Woodcut Project and More

‘Portrait of Hagiwara Sakutarô’, woodblock print by Onchi Kôshirô, 1943, 1st edition, National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo

The Big Ink website and blog has a current call to artists to take part in a collaborative large woodcut project. Monumental prints inspire artists and the public alike to think big, set long-term goals, and have the perseverance to see complex projects to fruition.

Each year artists from all backgrounds including sculpture, photography, painting, and print participate. Artists are invited to submit a proposal to create a woodcut at least 24 x 36 inches in dimension via an open call for entry.  If accepted, artists are given two months to carve their image into a piece of plywood.  At the end of the two months, all the artists meet for a printing session at a local print studio and help one another print their woodcuts onto paper. Typically between 30 to 36 hand pulled prints are produced during two days of printing sessions. Each artist donates one print to the BIG INK portfolio.

Two Artist Resources that Defy Categorization: Works.io and Art360 Gallery

From first view, the Art365 Gallery website has the look of an online art magazine, IMO. Although they refer to themselves as both an online art gallery and an art blog. You’ll find Featured Artists, Galleries, Glass Artists, and Art News.

Visual artists and glass artists are invited to submit for a permanent spot on this site.

– Send  a text in 300-500 characters about you, your artworks and perhaps a few words about your art technique.

– A link to your website/Facebook page.

– 6-8 quality images of your art.

They will rewrite a unique text about you and your art, show the best of your artworks and link to your website and Facebook fan page from their art blog (it’s a 100% free service). You’ll find the full details on their website.

Works.io is a sophisticated artist driven platform with a professional portfolio and CV tool for emerging fine artists to create online visibility.

Works.io is something like an artist directory, yet, when artists sign up for free they have a dashboard allowing them to add images of their art, their exhibition news, and more. Works.io also offers a monthly selection of emerging artists with more extensive text about each artist showcased. Works.io selects sophisticated art in low-key tones for their feature.

These relatively new sites have been added to our 57 page e-list of art magazines, blogs, and artist directories.

Sales Venues for Artists: Prints on Paper, Canvas, and on 3D Items

blogWebalphabet

According to highly experienced online sales experts such as the curators at Saatchi online, many art collectors begin to build their collections by buying prints.

Artists may wish to offer prints on paper, canvas, wood or metal through online venues where they may catch the eye of young collectors. That visibility could lead to sales.

For some artists, getting their art printed on a variety of home decor and fashion items may be of interest as well–not just postcards, stickers, t-shirts, cases, and tote bags, but also on 3D items from art toys, leggings, pillows, rugs, deck chairs, mugs, beer bottles to the more unconventional 2D art options of wall flags, metal posters, wallpaper, wall decals and more.

That’s why we’ve put together our newest resource for artists –the Art Print Sales Sites, Giclee and Other Print Resources list . On it we share many venues (online and physical spaces) where artists may get visibility and generate income from their art prints and printed items.

Support the ArtWorld App on IndieGoGo For Great Perks!

Artworld Crowd-Funding

Artworld is Crowd-Funding on Indiegogo and Offering Great Perks!

Dear Artist,

I am contacting you on behalf of Artworld, the online community for artists, art enthusiasts and buyers. I have your email-address as you have registered with us. A good proportion of you will have uploaded work (about half of all who registered). And many of you will know me personally through our correspondence.

As users and often supporters of Artworld, I ask you to help Artworld raise some €10,000 via crowd-funding (roughly $14,000 or £8,300). I invite you to take a close look at our proposal, and at the imaginative, perks we offer in return for your contribution. Here is our campaign-page. The campaign, on Indiegogo, will run for the next 45 days.

Artworld has been growing steadily since its launch. We have around 500 artists, some 5,000 app users, and a regular Facebook audience of around 1000 (there being some 8,000 likes). That’s an excellent result for a one-man pro-bonoinitiative with a tiny promotion and marketing budget. Artworld has spread almost exclusively through personal recommendation: by “word of mouth”.

The number of participants is now enough that additional development work is needed. To support this we have decided on crowd-funding. For a pro bono project such as Artworld, venture capital is not an option. Equally, my personal resources are not so large that I can raise the required investment from a bank. That leaves crowd-funding as the natural and indeed only practicable choice.

Spread the Word!

Other than, or in addition to, a cash contribution, you can support Artworld by sharing our Campaign Page on Facebook, or by copying this email to your own supporters, family and friends. And why not post it on your web-site or blog, or other social media, perhaps even tweet it? Help our campaign go viral! With full funding I can do even more to help Artworld’s artists and the community they represent.

Yours sincerely. Keith McFarlane Artworld Negative Entropy BV Amsterdam The Netherlands
