Patreon Project Kit for Artists
I've been on Patreon since the site went live and I've tried a lot of different experiments in that time. I've built a small, but dedicated following via this community-driven site. I'm a firm believer that crowd-funding is the wave of the future and the core building block of a growing breed of artist-entrepreneurs!
I thought I'd share that spirit of giving by sharing the structure, templates, and other resources that keep my Patreon ticking! I hope it helps other artists out there considering promoting their projects via this site. Let's make a Patreon!
While my Art has a Patreon account, so does The Muse's Library!

PROS and CONS: Etsy vs. Storenvy by themuseslibrary, literature
PROS and CONS: Etsy vs. Storenvy
A few years back, I wrote a comparison of eBay vs Etsy and the pros and cons of both (plus a review of eBay's shop format). Now, the marketplace has another contender that's definitely worth noting for independent artists - Storenvy. Time to re-evaluate!
Note: I've left eBay off this list because I don't use it actively anymore and never found it very effective for me as an artist beyond occasionally auctioning off originals using the free monthly auction style listings. It also hasn't changed much since my last review, except for allowing a higher amount of free auction style listings per month for sellers. If you have collectible work

Account Revamp! Free Stock?!
Long time, no see, stock fans! I have admittedly been quiet on this account for a long while. Life just sort of...happened, as it is wont to do! I graduated college, got married, and became a pro artist. Life got busy and this account was left behind (though I'd occasionally drop in to check messages and share any spare stock from my projects). In that time, I also expanded this account to include my art marketing tips, advice, and other resources. I'm happy to say I'm finally back! After experiencing the generosity of folks like @AdorkaStock and @JookpubStock , who have been invaluable in helping me bring my paintings to life as as an illustrator, I have made the major decision to transition most of my stock references here to being free for commercial use. Read on for a few of the big changes happening at this account! What's Changing at this Account? Free Stock A large majority of my stock is going to be made completely free to use for commercial projects (with some
