The Toughest Critics

by Mark Edward Adams on 12/30/2011 8:28:18 AM
11 Comments

I have found as an artist most people who you meet will either tell you they like your work or say nothing at all. It is rare when a stranger will tell you anything negative or offer some constructive advice. However, I have found an entire group of people that doesn't hold anything back. Children. [...]

Crowd Funding for Artists

by Moshe Mikanovsky on 12/29/2011 9:09:16 AM
15 Comments

Crowd Funding is a way to collectively get financial support for a project from “the crowd” rather than from individual investors. Each individual in the crowd gives a small portion of the required support, without attaining any ownership in the supported project. Instead, the project’s producer sells some incentives to the funders, such as products produced via the project. The funding crowd can be of any size, but the bigger it is, the higher social approval to the project. [...]

No More Bad Days

by Jack White on 12/28/2011 9:24:31 AM
29 Comments

I find when new artists exhibit too much enthusiasm in the beginning they tend hit a flat-line as they move forward. When they run into the doldrums, the area in the ocean where there is no wind to fill their sails, they sit down and declare defeat. They start with intense energy, then when things don’t go as easily as hoped these newbies begin to wilt like an unwatered sunflower in the hot, Texas summer sun. [...]

Questions You Don't Have to Answer: Where is This Place?

by Luann Udell on 12/22/2011 8:40:11 AM
13 Comments

Of course, to do this with integrity, you’ll have to do some deep thinking about what inspires you, and why. Why what you do really matters to you, rather than being some intellectual painterly exercise. But you know me by now. And you knew that was coming, didn’t you? [...]

Marketing Art On The Internet, Part 1

by Brian Kliewer on 12/21/2011 9:03:01 AM
13 Comments

So what's the "Good" of a bad economy? It's given me a different perspective on things. The way I work, what's important to me, etc., while at the same time, it has opened up a "window of opportunity" for those who would like to own original artwork...one that might not have existed otherwise. With respect to changing my perspective... It's also made me realize that I want to get more out of my work, and I do by trying to put more into it! [...]

But the options are out there, just waiting to be part of our marketing plan, if only we can figure out a way to learn how to use them because it can’t be that difficult, can it, when other people, who are about of our level of intelligence, are using this stuff, and using it well? [...]

Wow! It really WAS better than...

by Lynne Hurd Bryant on 12/16/2011 8:43:48 AM
10 Comments

If you were to ask me two weeks ago if I had a relationship with my art, I'd have thought for a moment and felt, in a vague way, that it was a relationship of sorts, but a contentious one; I do a lot of fighting and arguing, frequently feeling a lot of disgust and frustration. If I had a human life partner and we shared the sort of angst I have had with my art, we would soon be divorced. No one likes to live like that! [...]
