This was fun!
With Inktober beginning tomorrow and given the current situation, I was wondering if all who are participating could add a hashtag in support of Jake Parker. He has always been generous with time and information and I thought it would be good to show the love. Nothing divisive, just something like #thanksJP.
What do you think? Do you have a better hashtag? Can't wait to hear your thoughts!
@charitymunoz ~ I limited the size of my drawings to 4X6", which really cut down on the time required to complete each day's drawing. Good luck and have fun with it!!
For those of you who sell prints of your work, do you print them yourself or have them printed? If you have them printed, do you have a favorite printing company and are there huge minimums? Do you scan the originals (those who work traditionally) or have them photographed? Do you sell through Etsy, some other site, your own website? Looking for any and all suggestions and information. Thanks!!
My copy seems to have made it to within 20 minutes of my house -- and now "may have been lost." I can request a refund if I want, but I'm just going to bide my time, cross my fingers, and hope it can escape Amazon jail and arrive at my door. Call me overly optimistic, but it IS Christmas!!
@LauraA, @RachelArmington ~ This all stems from a quick colored pencil drawing I did for a friend when her dog died unexpectedly. She has also seen a couple of dog portrait paintings I did for my nieces. The friend's daughter now wants to pay me to do something similar for her friend. Given all the questions you've raised and information you have given me, it looks like I need to clarify what she actually wants. Thanks so much -- it is so helpful to have access to people who actually know what they're doing.
Hey, y'all! I've been approached in the past to do commissions for friends for free, but this is the first time someone has offered up-front to pay for one. Now I'm at a loss as to what sort of fee to charge. Any suggestions/opinions would be greatly appreciated.
Hey, y'all! I've been doing some research/reading about licensing artwork. I watched the Gina Lee classes and both were really informative, I just want to make sure I cover all the bases before moving forward.
One website says before you begin, "You must trademark your business to have anything to license." Has anyone else ever heard this? Another says you have to register and copyright all of your artwork. Again, anyone??
For those who are already licensing, do you have a separate website for that artwork or just a separate page?
Thanks a bunch!
Just subscribed! Best of luck!!!
