Artist Websites and Good Design - 5 Rules from a Former Gallery Owner

by Clint Watson on 8/26/2010 10:02:06 AM
41 Comments

Don't clutter artist websites with "cleverness" like animation and moving visuals. Keep it simple and visitors will look at your artwork. A proper online presence for every artist begins with a good old-fashioned website. Your art website is your "home base", your "hub." If you branch out into other online tools...great...but individual artist websites are where art collectors begin and end when connecting with artists. As such, make sure that your website utilizes a design that is clean and consistent. [...]

The Maker's High

by Clint Watson on 8/23/2010 10:04:16 AM
38 Comments

We humans must just be wired to experience the "maker's high." In fact, deep down, I suspect that everyone has a creative drive. In some, it may be long-suppressed and dormant. But, if you dig long enough and deep enough - it's there. I seriously don't think I've ever met anyone who had absolutely no creative drive at all. [...]

If, to maximize your chances of creating great art you have to pursue inspiration every time it strikes and, if you never know when it's going to strike, then, to produce great work, you will, necessarily have to "blow off" some tasks if you want to take advantage of that inspiration...So you tell me - when inspiration does strike, should you head to the studio and start creating or should you run errands?

If art works were the fruits of a tree, exchanging ideas must be the rain falling onto it. Without it, the best art is destined to dry up. One goal of the 100-day initiative was to provide a vehicle through which I met new people, particularly people with new ideas and interests. I can conclusively say that the initiative has reached this goal. [...]

"Working" on your "SEO", checking your web traffic stats, conversing on Facebook, updating your Twitter status, "stumbling" on StumbleUpon, seeing who commented on your blog, and checking your email may make you feel like you're "marketing" or "working" or being "productive", but be aware that they are addictive ...addictive in the same way that slot machines are addictive.

I have been a professional Portrait Artist for over 25 years and actually I did not think that I needed a Website. As I "surfed" the internet, I began to find out more and more of what is going on (outside of my secluded studio). Then I came to the conclusion that I wanted / needed my own Website! [...]
