Art Licensing ? Templates and Lists
I watched the Art Licensing class last night and thought it was really good. This has always been an area I wanted to break into.
One question I have is do I make a different website for it or just make a separate page for all my art licensing things in addition to my front page that has my children book illustration portfolio?
What are others doing?
I was looking for the templates as well. Loved the class, btw
Personally, my plan is just to have a separate page on my main site for licensing images, and keep my children's illustration portfolio as my main page. Since it's all art and there could even be some overlap I don't see any reason to make an entirely new site.
As far as manufacturers go, in my research into licensing (before I knew they were releasing this class) I found this list which focuses on greeting card manufacturers, though many of them also make other products as well: https://kateharperblog.blogspot.com/2016/12/artist-writer-submission-guidelines-for.html though of course I'd me interested in seeing Gina's list as well.
@sarah-luann I agree- I think there were a number of things she mentioned in her talk that would be in the downloads but weren't. Probably an oversight. Maybe one of the admins can add them?
I'm sorry, @Lee-White you said that the templates and list of manufacturers is part of the Class notes and assignments, but it's not. The document has three pages, but the last page is blank. The document text ends after the first class assignment. Is possible that it was only partially uploaded? Am I just not seeing it?

same problem I noticed, really wanted to get started with those templates!
They said on the class discussion board that they are working on it. I'm sure the downloads will be available as soon as they fix it.
The class is awesome, I'm looking forward to part 2.
hey guys, sorry for the delay. It turns out we all were out of town this week at conventions, etc. We are back now and looking to get it all worked out. We will get back to you asap.
Glad you are liking it so far!
I found a list on her website HERE
"Products manufactured with my artwork can be found in the following categories:
party ware, party decorations, greeting cards, gift items, games, fabrics, dishware, textiles, garden flags, paper crafting, digital illustrations, prints, and novelty gift shop items."
Here is a list of websites for a few manufacturers that work with art licensing:

We will go through this class this week to figure out what is missing... sorry for the frustration - we'll get it sorted out.
@will-terry Thanks Will and Lee!

Here is a fairly large list of companies that purchase art
@rcartwright Thanks, that is a list of agencies that rep artists. The manufacturers purchase the art.
Hello! We have added Gina's templates. Have fun!
@Lisa F Thanks for the templates. I was unable to download four of them. I don’t know if anybody else had the same problem.
Shopping List_example.jpg opens as a link
The other ones loaded fine.
@lisa-f Awesome!! Thanks
@mara-price Thanks for the heads up! I'll go check it out...
@mara-price Hello! For some reason, Gina saved those four files are jpegs, the rest are psd. The jpegs display a little differently than the psd files (as a link vs a download). But, I was still able to view the links.
What do you see when you try to download the four files?
@lisa-f Hi Lisa,
I finally figured out how to download them. They open as a link in a new tab and I copied them from there.
These is are the links as they appear on my computer.
