HERE'S MY PLANS FOR THIS ART BLOG!

THIS BLOG IS A FREE RESOURCE DEDICATED TO HELPING OTHER ARTISTS SELL, MARKET, PROMOTE & CREATE THEIR ART!

I've been an artist my entire life. When I was given my first box of Crayolas I was hooked. I've been a professional artist, in one form or another, for nearly 40 years. I've been a graphic designer, an illustrator, a fine artist, and digital artist and I've worked all two dimensional media and done some sculpting.

For the past 28 years I have participated in the fine art circuit throughout the United States, from California to Florida. I've traveled all over the country doing most of the major fine art shows, sold to galleries, licensed my art and created ways to promote my art. In the process, I've learned a lot about selling art, marketing art and promoting art and I've had some pretty interesting experiences and met some unique and wonderful people.

At the present I am also building an internet enterprise that centers around my Pop Culture Art along with some of my other interests, and I use my art skills in every part of this venture from web design to marketing and promotion.

With this blog I am hoping to give aid to other artists in their quest to make money from their art. ("How to sell my art" is one of the top search requests!) This is a free resource for selling art, marketing art, promoting art, creating art, discussing art, finding art shows and learning more about art. If you just want to do art as a hobby you can still benefit from the art tutorials, projects, tips and discussions. This blog is for, by and about artists of all kinds.

I will post resources for finding art shows, recommend art books and art materials, I plan to do art video tutorials, I will tell some amusing and scary stories about doing art shows, I'll introduce you to other artists, I'll post links to helpful art sites and much, much more as I get new ideas about blogging art.

This is just the beginning so grab your crayons, don your smock, get your creative juices flowing and come join me on the journey!

I hope so, Karlyn. I'm hoping to get other artists and creative types to help add content by posting too. We artistic peeps are a dying breed and need to be encouraged!
