Advice for Artists PART TWO: Licensing
Please read PART ONE too!
Licensing is a funny thing. Many artists have been lead to believe that it’s a magic word and will make them rich and famous immediately because they see So and So’s art all over. That’s wrong. No one product or contract will do either for you.
1. Trust your instincts and don’t let jealousy get in the way. Just because you see someone else’s art on a product doesn’t mean you know it’s actually a good deal for them.
2. There are two aspects to product licensing: royalties and exposure for your art. Ideally you want both and if you get neither it’s no use at all. You get only small percentage of what the product sells for wholesale (i.e half the price you see in stores). Don’t let anyone tell you that licensing is going to make you rich OR that it’s just free advertising that you aren’t supposed to make any money from.

Advice for Artists PART ONE
Part one of two.
The Basics:
When artists are starting out we are often so eager to be published that we are happy for anything that comes out way and don't stop to think. Creative people love being told they are liked and wanted. This article is designed to help you avoid the pitfalls that inexperienced artists often encounter.
Unfinanced Entrepreneurs:
“Unfinanced Entrepreneurs” was term coined in an articles by Mark Evanier. These are people with grand plans and no track record to back in up. They draw you in with tall tales of how when their project is published it will be the next big thing and sell tons. They can’t pay you right now, but you’ll make plenty in royalties after it’s published.  Or worse they want you to work for “exposure”, because the commissions will come rolling in after their project has made you famous. They are working under the assumption that what you do is easy, quick and fun.  Remember, n

Sooo I'm just gonna go ahead and copy and paste what I'd put in the comments on my 'Still Alive' piece =)

I submitted this to Pebeo's 2018 Mixed Media Exhibition 2018 and it made the short-list to go in the exhibition!  So June 26-29th it will be on display in the Mernier Gallery at London Bridge =) (Smile) Sooo excited! On the 26th there'll be a private viewing with drinks and canapés, very fancy.... except I'll be there, making it considerably less fancy and more socially awkward XD

There's a panel of judges for the exhibition but there is also a 'public vote'.. sooo... if you like this and you've a spare 30 seconds to go onto Pebeo's Facebook page... you could always, y'know, click through the link below, click 'vote', go to Page 9 and vote for my piece or something... ;) (Wink)

Voting's open until 15th June (but ya don't have to.. so thrilled to be in the exhibition that's already my win ^_^)

Aaaand.. if you happen to be in London and passing the London Bridge area toward the end of this month, entry is free.
