Marketing Materials For Artists
EDIT: Well butter my biscuits, some of my gifs disappeared into the interwebs. I'll remedy this soon! It’s no secret that us artists aren’t great at selling ourselves. The creative process is so much work it’s easy to assume that your work will be able to sell itself. Sometimes it can, but that’s not usually the case. Even if you aren’t interested in going commercial with your career (and there is absolutely nothing wrong with going that route), it is important have professional materials to present to clients, employers and galleries. If you aren’t interested in being “full time” with selling y

However, I think a good portion of the problem is that many people who want to commission an artist have no experience doing so, and it's not as easy to
